Jacqueline creates at Books and Willows where she shares literature inspired resources and nature studies. She brings her researching and teaching experience into her passion for writing hands-on learning materials with an emphasis on S.T.E.A.M. projects to spark curiosity about the world around us. As a homeschooling mom of 2 spirited young girls, 5 and 8, she follows a Charlotte Mason approach. You’ll see an emphasis on lots of time in nature, cozy read alouds, and big conversations. She often uses living books and poetry studies as the entry point to exploring literacy, science, geography, history, art, and more. Wherever the story leads them!

In her shop you’ll find her Curious Trails Family Literature and Activity Guides, watercolor Nature Studies, and new nature inspired Early Learning Language and Math Activity Packs. She often shares free resources on her website , as well as her year long Nature Poetry and Copywork studies.
