||Learning All the Time
||Author of 10 books that concentrate on early child development and education, John Holt is widely considered the father of the modern-day homeschooling movement, because he grew to believe that schools stifle the learning process. In this, his final book--compiled by colleagues from drafts, letters, and magazine essays written by Holt before he died in 1985--he strings together his own observations and philosophies to show how young children can be encouraged to learn everything from reading and math to music and science.
