What our customers say...

Beautiful, natural, ethical things to encourage our sweet ones to use their imagination and have fun while learning and being creative... I cannot recommend the Adventures in Natural Learning handbook and journal books highly enough, our homeschool journey is so much richer for it!! Thank you so much 💚💜💙

I absolutely love the book I bought - Adventures in Natural Learning. it's suitable from littlies all the way up to teens. My only regret is that I didn't find it sooner. I'm looking forward to using it when I eventually get it back from my friend. I may need to buy another copy. � Thank you Debbie, for your labour of love.

Our first package from Willow Cottage arrived today. It is amazing, thank you. Miss 5 who I bought the fabric for is in total awe "Wow the fabrics are soooo beautiful!" Plus her and Master 4 are excited to begin colouring in postcards to send to their penpals. We are all excited to start our seasonal journal this week at the beginning of a new month. And I am looking forward to having the Handbook as the perfect reference when we are struggling with ideas for what to do. Thank you so much for the fabulous products and the amazing service

After a tremendously busy day, it's wonderful to be able to enjoy our new art supplies that we got from Willow Cottage today, while that past load of washing is going! The new notepads are just beautiful, and I love the feel of the paper. Thank you so much Debbie, you are an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Hello Debbie
I received my copy of your book today. I love receiving parcels as I feel there is something magical and special about it. What a joy it was to open the one you sent! The care you took to write a personal note was wonderful and I could see that it was done by someone who loves what they do. The kids and I also want to thank you for the treasure bag. We will use it on our next adventure. 
Thanks again!

I bought several loose parts sets for our mainly music group and am really looking forward to taking them along for the children to play with. My older daughter really wants to play with the log set, and I'm really happy with the material sets and how the colours go together for our cushion project.

Amazing helpful service. So awesome to shop with a company that know their products well, who are totally supportive of lots of questions and guides a customer well.

The kids are so in love with their new stuff and it's really awakened my son's passion for drawing and writing again.

Thanks so so much!

Very happy with our supplies from Willow Cottage NZ. Our items were beautifully wrapped and promptly posted. I wouldn't hesitate to order again.

Feedback on the Adventures In Natural Learning books:

..they are exactly what I hoped they would be and the journal is just what I was looking for to record our home educating adventure! Thank you for writing them ... I can see exactly how this will work with my family and my highly resistant to "planned schooling" kids.

My 6 year old, after asking me to write out one section decided he wanted to continue on his own. This is huge for him.

I highly recommend Debbie's "Adventures In Natural Learning" handbook and seasonal journals. The handbook has given me many wonderful ideas for fun activities for my children. My 10 year old also likes to refer to the book himself for suggestions for play and learning. There are ideas that would suit all ages, personalities and interests.
