Interest in AP Book Club? - Page 2

post #21 of 28
I'm Chessa, SAHM to Silas T., who is 2 1/2. I got into reading about AP when I was pregnant and my interest in it has continued to evolve. We're now sort of aimed in the direction of radical unschooling, which I think has a lot of the same characteristics of AP, just taking it more explicitly beyond the infant/toddler stage. I've heard mixed reviews of this book, so I'm very curious to see what all the fuss is about. We purchased it (along with a stack of other parenting/unschooling books) with some holiday money - we're total book-a-holics here! I live in Seattle and my partner works in community college administration - I trained as a librarian, but graduated grad school when I was 8 months pregnant so never really got to be an *official* librarian.

Personally I think a chapter by chapter approach makes the most sense - do we want to do a chapter a week? More? Less? I'm pretty open, and a pretty quick reader (my dude still naps!), so I can go either way.

Looking forward to the discussion!

I'm Allie, mostly SAHM (I work about 3 days a month) to DD who will be 2 at the end of the month. Before I was pregnant I knew I would have a midwife attended birth. Well from the midwife, I learned about the Mothering magazine and our Bradley instructor. And from our Bradley instructor I learned about the Baby Book by Dr Sears. DH and I found it so helpful, because we really had no idea what we were getting into with a newborn. I'm so thankful we read that book first and not some more conventional parenting book.
I love to read and have read many parenting books. And I too feel myself drawn to the CL/US lifestyle.

And I'd be good with a chapter a week.

I got the book in the mail yesterday! I read half of Chapter 1 last night after DD went to sleep.
Should we start a new thread for each chapter when we're ready to start discussing?

Sounds like a good idea to me.....

See new thread

Hi! I'll go start a new thread for the discussion. See you all over there.
Edit!
After reading the guidelines for this forum I realize I'm not prepared to start our discussion thread. Any facilitator material out there?
