It was honestly not that great of a read for me, I'm surprised I even finished it. It was too wordy and I couldn't follow the organization of it very well, which drove me crazy. The best part were the quotes by Charlotte Mason.

A few years ago I was fortunate enough to attend a seminar given by Penny Gardner on the Charlotte Mason method of homeschooling. I had already read every book on the subject that I could get my hands on (including Mason's original books), but Penny's presentation made it all concrete. After listening to her explanations and personal experiences and watching her demonstrate some of the concepts, I could actually picture myself doing narration, picture study, nature journals, etc.

As I went through this book, I enjoyed it more and more. It is ironic to me that the book talks so much of the importance of using original "living" books and yet is a simplified version of Charlotte Mason's texts. Because it is written quoting her works, I found that the book had many repetitions in both the quotes and personal stories of the author. My favorite chapters were on narration and the arts, though I found most of the book very helpful in understanding the philosophy of the Charlotte ...more

Great study guide. I didn't learn anything new but if I need to find something quickly, I can reference this guide for a quick overview and go to Charlotte Mason's actual works to get more information. The more I read Charlotte Mason's works and guides about her work, I wish I would have been taught in this manner and my kids were started out this way in life.

i am enjoying this study guide, though there are so many "proverbs" that it's hard to digest every wise nugget. Charlotee Mason has some very good ideas how how to teach children in a "learner led" way. I'm only on page 38 and I have to finish this before the weekend (it belongs to someone else). But i think it's important enough to try and finish before I got to teach in Taiwan!!!

I am not done with this book either. I usually pick it up for inspiration the mornings before I begin schooling (since its summer, I have put it on hold until the fall). When I am done with it I will probably continue to pick it up and read every day before beginning our school days.

I loved her opinions of "twaddle" books and the importance of "naration" with the children. It totally works!

Good basic overview of what the Charlotte Mason method is all about. Lots of great practical ideas for the "gentle art of learning."

I really enjoyed this. It helped me have an overview understanding of Charlotte Mason Education. I recommend it to anyone who has children living at home.

I am still reading all things Charlotte Mason. This was a good collection of quotes from some of her works- not really anything new from what I had already read.
