    Perhaps you think you know what “classical” education is all about. It doesn’t take much “googling” to come up with the trivium and a few key authors. However, Leigh Bortins proves that there can be many ways to skin the proverbial cat. In this highly readable book she tells us what is wrong with American education, what our model and ideals should be and then, subject-by-subject she outlines a plan. It’s a workable plan, not necessarily easy to implement (it will take diligence and consistency) but definitely do-able. One can easily see both the potential of her methodology and the means by which it is accomplished. Classical Conversations (the community-based, one-day-a-week, classical homeschooling option the author co-founded) is attracting a surprising number of homeschoolers eager to implement her ideas. In this book she tells us how to incorporate classical study into daily routines involving the entire family. Maybe you need to be convinced that this is the direction you want to go. Maybe you need a road map to help take you there. Maybe you just want to know that others are following a similar path. It’s in here! 238 pgs, pb. Janice

    A wise addition for any family: a "Morning Time" when the family comes together to focus on and recite Truth. Truth can't be dumped into our children (or us) once a week or at random intervals. Daily review will solidify and invest truth in each member of your family. How do you execute that as a routine? Here is the beauty of this Cindy Rollins handbook: a simple, concisely organized plan to have a daily Morning Time. You'll find advice in the form of tips and lists on memorizing Scripture as well as poetry and hymns. Her conversational tone and examples help you learn from this experienced home teacher. 112 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    More than learning "of" the classic masterpieces in art history, these 36 hands-on projects expose young students to the stories and meanings behind the masterworks, then have them recreate them in unique ways. Retained learning and appreciation is done best through experience. The 36 projects cover a wide range of media and are divided into 18 sections (representing 18 different masterworks of art), each section starting with a conversation for parent and child to share about the masterworks. Each project has a supply list of items that are easy to find at a local hobby, art or hardware store. These 18 masterworks sections are divided into 8 main chapters (Color, Black & White, Shape, Animals, Portraits, Landscape, Myths & legends, Light & shade). The cleanly designed book contains clear, step-by-step instructions with beautiful color photos and finishes with a glossary, short bios on each artist and helpful notes and tips on the materials used throughout. 144 pgs, pb. ~ Emily

      A framework for understanding western literature and culture. In explaining why we should read the “classic” literature of our culture, it’s many times been said that that literature represents an ongoing conversation – The Great Conversation. By reading, understanding, and then writing we enter that conversation of the ages. The author of this book, Robin Finley (author of Analytical Grammar), taught language arts to 8th graders for over 30 years and contends that the conversation is actually more of an argument with two main contenders – those who believe that God is in charge and those who believe that man is in charge. She traces western civilization/culture through history, illustrating how literature and historical events are intertwined. To understand literature, one needs to be acquainted with the historical framework and understand the underlying argument. A fascinating and helpful book. Discussion questions are provided at the end of each chapter. Read aloud as a family. Provide lots of time for discussion. 286 pgs, pb ~ Janice

       Continuing the conversation on classical education, this elegant discussion by Kevin Clark and Ravi Scott Jain expands on the elements of a traditional, liberal arts (in the historic sense) education. Employing an interesting paradigm that traces through those elements, they show the relationship between grounding, gymnastic and music, the tools of learning (trivium and quadrivium), and philosophy.  Coming from a biblical and Christian viewpoint, the authors note that “the foundational distinction between traditional education and modern education is that the ancients believed that education was fundamentally about shaping loves.” 169 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
