"Every Natural Fact: Five Seasons of Open-Air Parenting" Book Review

Over the past few weeks, I have been reading an enjoyable book called "Every Natural Fact: Five Seasons of Open-Air Parenting" by Amy Lou Jenkins. This is not a book to rush through and tuck away in the closet, but one to lose yourself within. This book is about a divorced mother and her young son, DJ, and their journey through life while learning and growing together. Exploring the world first hand while bonding and connecting with her child on a completely different level than the typical parent. With each exploration in nature, DJ was not only learning about the nature surrounding him, but also about how to be a respectable man instead of a boy. This mother discovers how to overcome failed relationships and how to find love and real security in her own life as she is sharing her experiences with each word written. The main thing that I loved about this book was how strong the connection was between DJ and his mother. As I got deeper and deeper into the book, their bond and connection also got deeper and deeper. A great read for everyone!
