    Extensive research, a heart for Charlotte Mason and her work, and much experience living the method combine in this meaty volume. Karen Andreola, owner of the Charlotte Mason Research & Supply Company, shares her years of putting the principles and “practicals” of Charlotte Mason into practice in her own home school. Complete with quaint turn of the century illustrations, her book reminds us that children are yet children - Ms. Mason’s insights and techniques are equally applicable in our “modern” times. An excellent writer, Karen imparts not only her love for Ms. Mason and her methods, but a real understanding of how to implement them. I felt like I was peeking in the door of her home as I read, watching her tenderly instruct her own children. After reading through the book, I felt that Charlotte Mason, with all her wisdom and gentleness, was still among us - embodied by enthusiastic and dedicated people like Karen who are indeed her “kindred spirits”.I suspect that many who travel through it’s pages will also become Charlotte Mason devotees, or at least adopt some of the learning approaches advocated.

    Catherine Levison authored these two books to help parents understand and apply the methods of Charlotte Mason in their homeschools. In her first book, Catherine gives a brief overview of Charlotte Mason and her methods. Then, subject by subject, she reveals how the method is applied in each area of learning. The final chapter deals with "The Formation of Habit". In it, she discusses the necessity of instilling proper learning habits in your children.

    After laying this groundwork, Catherine tackles more specific applications of the method in More Charlotte Mason Education. Especially helpful is the "Questions and Answers" chapter in which she addresses some commonly asked questions and addresses potential trouble spots. Other topics covered in the book are the application of short lessons, an explanation of "Liberal Arts", keeping a "Century Book", choosing curriculum, scheduling, teaching high school, and selecting appropriate books. Recommended books and resources are found at the end. Throughout the books, many references are made to the Original Homeschooling Series of six books. If you are serious about pursuing the Charlotte Mason method in your homeschool, you will probably find it a wise investment to continue your research by reading through the Original series.

    Describes a philosophy of education based on the Charlotte Mason approach - an approach concerned as much with instilling good character and high morals in children than with learning basic skills. After acquiring basic abilities in the three R's, children learn through "living books" (as opposed to dry texts) and life experiences. Macaulay draws heavily on the philosophies of Charlotte Mason, but from a Christian viewoint. Besides imparting Mason's philosophy and sharing her personal experiences as a homeschooled child, Susan shares the joy, freedom, and beauty possible in life and learning.

    Who is Charlotte Mason and how does her philosophy of education provide such great appeal for homeschooling families? This succinct book introduces us to Miss Mason, a British Educator in the 19th century, and offers a gentle overview of her philosophy, allowing families to determine if this approach is right for them. Miss Mason once described the essence of education as “an atmosphere, a discipline, a life”, and this book takes a look at the meanings behind these words philosophically and in the practical application. We also are given a glimpse of what a typical “Charlotte Mason School day” looks like in the home of the Queen family. Providing an excellent introduction to the Charlotte Mason methodology, this book is indispensable in equipping you to use a Charlotte Mason approach. 34 pgs, pb. - Deanne

    This book was written to be a natural follow up to the much-appreciated For the Children's Sake by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay. While that book has inspired (and continues to inspire) many parents and educators, it has also left them with a desire for an even deeper understanding of the Charlotte Mason philosophy and her teaching methods. This book was written in response to their requests for further help and guidance in implementing these techniques. The book was written by a handful of contributors, including Macaulay, all of whom are deeply involved in education and are Charlotte Mason advocates. The book holds six chapters. The first two cover "The Value of Charlotte Mason's Work for Today," and "The Child is a Person." The third chapter discusses the "Four Pillars of Education" - atmosphere, discipline, life, and the science of relations. In the "Distinctives of a Charlotte Mason Education" chapter, a wide variety of topics are addressed, including living books, narration, poetry, history, mathematics, nature study, music appreciation, foreign languages, physical education, and many more. The last two chapters are entitled "Broader Application of Charlotte Mason's Teaching Principles," and "An Applied Philosophy." This is a highly-informative book which takes the topic of education quite seriously. 254 pgs, pb. - Melissa

    Self-described as Charlotte Mason-flavored, this language arts curriculum (with reading, grammar, vocabulary, composition and handwriting practice) pulses with a Biblical emphasis (NASB). With each lesson, students read a continuing story about friends Micah and Claire and their Sunday School experiences, alternating every other week with an age-appropriate literature selection. Each week follows a similar pattern of 20-30-minute activities.

    Level 3 further strengthens previous reading, observation, and communication skills and begins writing paragraphs. Students will narrate, copy, and memorize Scripture. Sketching pictures to develop coordination and observation is included weekly. Each quarter, reviews cover punctuation, grammar, and writing and spelling.

    Non-reproducible (unless otherwise indicated), consumable, and 3-hole punched. Approx. 400 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth
