What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"When Children Love to Learn is one of the better books I've seen on the Charlotte Mason approach. Elaine Cooper has done a phenomenal job of laying down the basic tenets parents of homeschoolers hold dear: a child must love to learn. Narration, living books, nature study-it's all here. Elaine covers a lot of ground to show how easy it can be to make learning enjoyable. Charlotte Mason fans will love this! Highly recommended for every homeschool reference library."
Gena Suarez, Publisher, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine

Many homeschoolers and schools are studying the works of Charlotte Mason, published in 6 volumes, and applying it to their education efforts. For those unable to take the time to wade through those pithy volumes, this book provides a summary of her ideas in a easy-to-follow format. It also contains a lot PRACTICAL general guidance in applying her principles to home or school for K-12. As a bonus, it includes a sample timetable and syllabus charts for 3rd grade so that readers can see how Ambleside School of Fredericksburg (TX) applied these principles. I wish that this had been available to me when I started homeschooling 4 years ago. I will use it to shape the education of my children this upcoming year.
