Ainsley Arment's shares ideas, inspirations, practices, and lifestyle philosophies in an Instagram account, branded 'Wild + Free' and ultimately published as a series of books.
The 'Wild + Free" title was inspired by Henry David Thoreau who said "all good things are wild and free." Arment follows David's philosophy of parenting of families who can adopt elements of Wild + Free's "intentional parenting" regardless of their school choices.
According to Ainsley, her "approach is less about replicating the classroom at home and more about awakening a desire to learn in the natural environment." Wild + Free does not dictate a specific educational philosophy, but rather gently suggests that parents are the most intuitive educators of their kids.
With step-by-step instructions, Wild + Free Book Club is filled with fun ideas for a range of books such as:
- Anne of Green Gable - Host a picnic tea party.
- The Secret Garden - Craft a terrarium--a secret garden of your own
- Charlotte's Web - Host an old time country fair
- The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - Turn your front door into a magical portal to Narnia.
