"Ainsley Arment has emerged as one of the most prominent voices in a grass-roots community that, long before social distancing, decided to reject mainstream schooling and rather educate within the family…. The Call of the Wild and Free, part memoir and part manifesto, encourages mothers who are considering home-schooling and those who are ready to give up… suggesting that parents are the most intuitive educators of their kids." — The New York Times
"If you’re curious about homeschooling or wondering if it’s something you might be able to do, this is a low-pressure, easy read that’s also super inspiring." — Book Riot
