    Wonderful!!!

    This book is a great tool that I keep handy at all times! It is very easy to read, easy to find the subject you need to read about, and gives some great ideas! I first borrowed this from the library, and 2 weeks later bought my own copy! Love it!

    Good how to book

    I was very happy to find a book on the Charlotte Mason way of educating that actually gave you some how to's. I found that the reading easy to understand without having to wade through a lot of unneccesary fluff. It has given me a clearer picture of the benefits of Charlotte Mason education.

    Disappointing

    I was very disappointed upon receipt of this book. It has very little information in it that cannot be found elsewhere on the internet. I read it in less than one hour. It did not inform my mind or provide interest for my soul and in no way will it improve my knowledge or understanding of the Charlotte Mason method.

    Great Tool!

    This book has been a great tool and has given me guidance with homeschooling my children. I didn't know where to start and after I read this book I am now on my way to really teaching my children and know that they are truly learning.
