About Books and Willows

Hi, 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 is influenced by Charlotte Mason. You’ll see an emphasis on time in nature, cozy read alouds, encouraging big questions, values, and relationship.

I believe there’s nothing more powerful than storytelling to connect us and make sense of our world. Our living books are our entry point to exploring literacy, science, geography, history, art, and more. Wherever the story leads us! Join us as we chase our curiosities through literature and on the nature trail!

This was just so much fun to do! My kids really enjoyed learning all about reindeer in this unit study. I love all the hands-on activities and handicrafts. There is just so much goodness in this unit! (Reindeer Unit Study)


This pack was amazing and I love how beautiful the pictures and designs are! Easy to print and use. (Ladybug Looking Glass Nature Study)


This is the real deal. Often I buy unit studies that are really beautiful but turn out to have no substance. This one is gorgeous and PACKED with great lesson plans. Absolutely fabulous. (Renewable Energy Unit)


The ocean unit was simply AMAZING! Well worth the money. The illustrations are beautiful and there are several QR codes sprinkled throughout the pages with fun extras like educational videos and art tutorials. Will definitely be purchasing from Books and Willows again in the future!
