Back in our early days of homeschooling, when the Internet was still getting off the ground, one of the first sources I found for information on Charlotte Mason was Deborah Taylor-Hough. Granted, every Charlotte Mason “expert” has her own bent — and granted, we learn more about Charlotte Mason by reading her in her own words — nevertheless, there is much to be gained from those who have not only read her works but implemented her ideas in the education of their children. With this in mind, you may enjoy A Twaddle-Free Education: An Introduction to Charlotte Mason’s Timeless Educational Ideas by Deborah Taylor-Hough now marked down to $0.99 for the Kindle version. (You can read the book on any device with the Kindle App.)
Are you disappointed with dumbed-down reading material (“twaddle”) written for children? Do you wish for your children to feast their hearts and minds on noble ideas, fine art, and great literature? Are you hoping your children gain an appreciation of nature and a deep understanding of natural sciences? Most importantly, do you want your children to develop a lifetime love of learning? If you answered “yes,” you may discover a Charlotte Mason-inspired twaddle-free education is just what you’ve been looking for.
One of the things that we have always encouraged in our home is learning as a lifestyle. And we love to recommend resources that focus on heart!
Great opportunity to pick up a book that does just that!
