The Da Vinci Road describes the awakening of our senses as the foundation of learning; the ability to see, hear, and feel the world around us. Story after story from the author's own experience in both learning and teaching draw the reader into the lives of the author and her family. The senses awaken and reach for experience as the reader discovers the timeless road to knowledge; the exhilarating and, sometimes, unsettling path of observation.

"People often ask us about our homeschooling methods and curriculum. This book, The Da Vinci Road: Observation and the Art of Learning, is my response."From the Inside Flap:
Some say "schools were better in the old days: they taught the truth back then." Others say "if only we had better teachers!" Still others decide to homeschool and change both the teacher and the curriculum, but still miss the whole point of education.
I say no matter how adept a teacher may be at seeing and describing, it will always be better for the student to see for himself. So, how can the student learn to see and hear more clearly? That, dear reader, is the first and most important question in life and learning.
