I like this book, it has a lot of great information and methods, but a couple of things hold me back from giving it a higher rating.

#1 is the language used. You actually have to use your brain, yes, I know... so awful. But it really broke me. Unfortunately I'm a BUSY mother who doesn't have time to analyse a sentence for three days. Probably a product of my crappy public education, but...

#2 I'm not really sure how I feel about an author who quotes Locke and Marx in connection to children's education. Granted, she was a Victorian who didn't know the consequences of Marx's influence, but it's still a hind sight thing. Makes me hesitant to utilise fully.

This is despite the fact that I'm going to a CM convention tomorrow. I like CM a lot, but I don't take this to be my bible like some homeschoolers I know. I already have a bible, thanks!

A quick rundown on how to provide a Charlotte Mason education - consider it Charlotte Mason 101, and in less than 100 pages to boot. There are sections for every subject giving Mason's basic premises and her book recommendations as well as the author's recommendations. A nice way to be introduced to the Mason style and get a feel for the resources.

NB: The author is rather conservative Christian (does not celebrate Halloween, initially rejected all Dickens books because "A Christmas Carol" is a ghost story). As a liberal Christian, I still felt there was enough to take away to warrant reading this short book.… (mer)
