Revue de presse

“This book will fill you with yearning to connect further with nature, yourself, your family, and creativity. It inspires and uplifts with magnificent, evocative photography. Knitting and sewing projects, herbal health care, recipes, seed sprouting. A book of delight for the whole family.”—Juno Magazine (UK)

Présentation de l'éditeur

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 woodstove 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. Paying attention to these changes slows us down, inspires new types of creative play and exploration, instills a sense of family togetherness, and deepens an awareness of nature and self that can make our lives, days, family, and earth grow stronger.

The Rhythm of Family explores what we learn and can gain as parents and families by encouraging and experiencing creativity and nature exploration with our children, the seasons can provide us with a rhythm that brings us close to the earth, and closer to our children.

L'envoi était tardif mais dans les délais. Par contre le livre est en mauvais état. Un tiers des pages et la couverture du dos du livre ont été pliées à plusieurs endroits, le descriptif n'était pas aussi précis ...

HASH(0x9c8ff0f0) étoiles sur 5 Beautiful but not much content 2 janvier 2012
Par Mom2two - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The photography in this book is stunning. I gave it 3 stars because the book was worth buying just for the photographs in my opinion. But I've been living with this book for a few months, picking it up, looking at the essays and project ideas. I've been unsettled. It's a great concept and I love this particular mama and what she's about. But there's very little real content here.

The essays were like diary entries -- things about their family and experiences. There's some value to this I guess, but I thought the book would be about rhythm in family in general -- not just this particular family's journal of their private adventures. The book should have been called "The Rhythm of Our Family" or something like that.

Each month offers some crafting or cooking idea, but that doesn't add up to much. Far better books exist on crafting with family through the year, connecting with family outdoors, and cooking. For crafts I like "Crafts Through the Year" by Thomas Berger. For outdoor exploration I love "Nature's Playground" - it's packed full of ideas for exploring nature in every season with children.

HASH(0x9c8ff468) étoiles sur 5 Some nice essays. 12 octobre 2011
Par S. Bakkila - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Have skipped around the book as it's now fall when I received it, and have enjoyed the essays from "Mama" and "Papa." Some nice writing. Her husband writes well. So far, many of the "projects" are pretty normal and I'd say are secondary in this book. I think the overall book is about the essays, thinking of the cycles in families and the natural world we love in (like the title says). I can appreciate their decision to essentially step away from the type of life many of us lead, but I don't think many of us can honestly devote days to preserving tomatoes on top of everything else. Her job is to be exactly what she is. Sadly, that's not my job. My life is much more ordinary and typical of living in suburbia. But I do appreciate the book, it's message, the photos and the fact it makes me CONSIDER how we can choose a path more geared toward our family and our home.

HASH(0x9c954144) étoiles sur 5 Thoughtful and calming 29 août 2011
Par GreenDarner - Publié sur
Format: Broché
As a follow up the Amanda Soules other two books this one is really lovely. The book is full of thoughtful essays on each month and the changes in the family as the seasons change. More of an inspiration for aware parenting than an "how to" book. Has great crafts, recipes and ideas but also a lot of wisdom. I feel the value is in the words to help remind us to slow down and enjoy our children and families. Also the photography is amazing! Really wonderful to hear from another family doing things by hand, from scratch, and with intention. Very lovely, worth owning! No offense to Amazon, but buy from Soulemama website like I did and get yours autographed (plus you can see cute pics of the whole family packing up all the ougoing books!)

HASH(0x9c8ffa50) étoiles sur 5 I would return it, if it weren't for the hassle 2 août 2012
Par L. Ayala - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I loved the idea of this book, I loved the cover, and I really wanted to love this book. As a new parent, I don't have the time that I used to investigate books as thoroughly. I have, however, spent a lot of time looking through the author's other book "Handmade Home". I liked the book, although not enough to buy it, and I used this along with the concept and beautiful cover to decide to buy this book. When I received the book I immediately browsed the projects and recipes only to be very much unimpressed. The book sat for a while. Later, I started to read the essays and I just couldn't get into it. Maybe, if you are more of a beginner this would be a good book for you. I personally felt that I didn't need instructions for any of the projects, and any that needed more guidance could easily be found on the internet. For example, the one project I think that I would like to do is to make recycled paper. The process is relatively self explanatory, and if you wanted a specific recipe, one could easily find it on the internet.

I get that the projects are supposed to be things that you can do with kids, but if they are that simple I think the book should make up for it in quantity. (The book is divided up into months and each month has about 3 projects/ recipes) I just felt like this book should have been a blog. I don't mean to bash the book, and I hate to actually, but I do feel like I wasted my money.

I love Amanda's blog, Soulemama, and her first two books are among my favorites for inspiration on what to do WITH my boys when a slot of creative time presents itself. Her third book is as excellent as the first two. Her first book, The Creative Family, really focuses on MAKING things WITH your children; her second book, Handmade Home, focuses on making things with your children without going to the made in China craft store and spending a lot of money (use what you have). Her third book includes making things with your children as well, but the focus is how it all works together in real life, i.e. you and your children make an herbal chest salve during the season you will most likely need it, etc. A simple concept, yes, but one I find comforting in print. Her organization of seasonal activities is a gift to me; she has taken the time to help me "see" my children, our family, in each season. The projects, simple but beautiful, tie in seamlessly with the essays written by Amanda and her husband, Steve. The essays give me pause to think, to breathe, to slow down in my "to do" list and really look at my two guys at the ages they are NOW, and my interaction with them NOW, and what is going on OUTside NOW. Any author who encourages me as a mom to be in the moment with my children, who inspires me to learn and grow along with my children, who encourages me to see beauty everywhere I look, is a gift to me.
I want to address the person who was offended by Amanda's chapter on meditation. I am a Christian and Amanda, I believe, is a buddhist. As a Christian, I teach my children to pray and to meditate on the Word of God. Her chapter on meditation, and other statements by Amanda or Steve that clash with my Christian worldview are NOT, for me, grounds for dismissing her book. There are authors who have a worldview agenda when they write a book, and you can usually pick up on it early on. Amanda's books (and blog) do not fall into that category. Her message is clear in all that she does: love of motherhood, love of home, love of children, love of (and respect for) husband, love of creativity, and love of nature. She is a buddhist (I believe) and I am a Christian, yet we are both women who share these loves. I can learn from her without fearing she'll influence my Christian walk, and I can love.
