A wonderful view on what education is and how children can come by it naturally, with a bit of guidance, and still enjoy their childhood. A definite must before you start homeschooling, it will make your journey much more enjoyable, less stressful and successful for both yourself and your child. I didn't discover it until after I had taught my children for a couple of years. Those years were frustrating and tearful because I was trying to recreate the classroom (designed for a multitude of children) rather than exploring the freedom of learning in my home and town.

I've read Levison's books and Penny Gardner's books on Charlotte Mason, which gave me a skeletal view. A Charlotte Mason Companion defintely provides the most depth. The author delves into the subjects, illustrates her points with examples, and fleshes out the meaning. Especially helpful were her chapters on forming good habits, developing virtue, etc. I had read some summaries of Charlotte Mason's views on discipline, but just couldn't understand how to make it work until I read the author's examples. The author's quaint language and excessively prim attitude may bother some. And she does not touch on the subject of math. However, if you're looking for a thorough reference on Charlotte Mason, I believe this is the one.
