Author: Amanda Blake Soule
Publisher: Shambahla Publications

Many of us with busy families yearn for a slower and simpler life with our kids— One that is connected to the seasons and the natural rhythm of the year, one that has our children spending more time out of doors rather than in, one that balances out some of the busyness of our lives— the computers, the televisions, the cell phones— with a deeper connection to the Earth and an appreciation for and understanding of the natural world. The Rhythm of Family is a guide to living such a life for any family.

Following the course of a year through the passing of the seasons, this book explores the ways we can create deep family connections and meaningful memories through living in tune with the cycles of nature. From stomping around in mud boots in the spring to gathering around the wood stove in winter, our activities naturally change from season to season— From the rhythms of the seasons comes the rhythms in our homes, our hearts, our families, and our every day.
