"Profusely and beautifully illustrated...an impressive compendium
of family-oriented things to do for fun and bonding every day of
the year. Thoroughly 'family friendly' in organization and
presentation, and unreservedly recommended for personal and
community library arts, crafts, and cooking collections."
--Midwest Book Review
"Jana Blankenship and Emma Frisch are two women I trust immensely in matters of home and family life--how they embody natural living is not only inspiring and approachable but just plain fun. Here is a refreshing take on ancient wisdom, mixed with clever new ways to embrace family life. It is playful, joyful, and as delightful as the authors."
