Introducing: The Green Family!
Coming soon: The Green Family Goes to Homeschool Co-Op
Meet The Green Family: Mama, Papa, Axel (10), Violet (8), River (6), and Soleil (3). They’re a Midwestern, homesteading family living their best life — as naturally as they can.
In the third book of the Green Family series, The Green Family Goes to Co-op, it is a rainy day, but that doesn’t keep the Green family cooped up inside. The Green family is not going to let a little rain stop them from enjoying their favorite day of the week – homeschool co-op day! This story shines some light on how homeschool co-ops bring communities together for learning and fun. So, come join Axel, Violet, River, and little Soleil as they enjoy their day at co-op with Mama and Papa.
Sneak peek of the story:
“‘Let’s get started!’ Mrs. Shannon clapped her hands. ‘Welcome to messy science! In this class, we’re going to do a new project or experiment every week. We will get messy!’”
“Before long, co-op was over. ‘Come on,’ Mama said. ‘It’s time to go home!’ All the children waved good-bye to their new friends – and Violet hugged Arielle – before they piled back into their car to head home for rest and family homeschool time. ‘ Homeschool co-op is my favorite day!’ River declared. ‘We get to learn all the coolest things!’ Mama smiled. ‘I bet you can’t wait to go back next week!’”
Find out why the Green family loves co-op so much, and stay tuned for more titles to come!

The second adventure of the Green Family
It’s called The Green Family Goes Wildcrafting, and it’s all about the beauty — and health benefits! — of spring herbs.
As Mama Green is preparing a healthy breakfast, the Green children look out the window to see an amazing sight — it’s dandelion season! They head outside with their herb-gathering baskets, and begin picking dandelions, violets (which Violet loves!), and many more spring herbs. Mama shares the benefits of these herbs with them as they pick. After, they come inside and make some amazing treats with their flowers. The recipes for these treats are included in the book, so you can try them too!
The First Book
Meet The Green Family: Mama, Papa, Axel (10), Violet (8), River (6), and Soleil (3). They’re a mid-western, homesteading family living their best life — as naturally as they can.
In their first adventure, The Green Family Gets the Sniffles, Violet wakes up with a cold on a day they’re supposed to head to the town’s ice festival. Papa takes the healthy kids off for an adventure, while Mama stays behind to take care of poor Violet.
But Mama knows just what to do! She gives Violet her homemade elderberry syrup, makes a pot of chicken soup, and prepares hot ginger tea. Soon, Violet is feeling better — and Mama’s prepared when Axel wakes up later with a sniffle, too!
The Green Family adventures are fun and relatable for real families who are trying to do their best to make healthier, natural choices. While most children’s books normalize the mainstream path (schools, doctor’s visits, etc.), The Green Family normalizes a totally different lifestyle — one that is becoming ever more popular.
The story is beautifully illustrated, and comes with discussion questions and recipes for elderberry syrup, ginger tea, and chicken soup, so you can try them out with your own family!
Sneak peek of the story:
Mama Green smiled at Violet and headed into the kitchen. She got out the ingredients for soup: onions, carrots, celery, garlic, bone broth, bay leaves, parsley, sage, chicken, and turmeric. She chopped and mixed and simmered until the soup was golden and smelled delicious.
Violet came wandering out of her room. “I smelled the soup and I want to have some!”
“Of course,” Mama Green said, as she reached for a bowl and a spoon. She ladled some steaming soup into Violet’s bowl, then carried it across their bright, rustic kitchen and set it down in front of her at the table.
