About Books and Willows

I’m Jacqueline. I’ve been a teacher and now I love creating literature inspired resources and nature studies as a homeschooling mom. Our homeschool has been influenced by Charlotte Mason’s educational philosophies. You’ll see an emphasis on time in nature, cozy read alouds of living books, encouraging big questions, values, and relationship.

I believe there’s nothing more powerful than storytelling to connect us and make sense of our world. We begin with stories, from picture books to chapter books, as an entry point to exploring literacy, science, geography, history, art, and more. Wherever the story leads us! We hope you will join us as we chase our curiosities through literature and on the nature trail!
