This is a thorough chapter-by-chapter overview of the inspiring teaching principles of Christian educator Charlotte Mason from the original Charlotte Mason authority, speaker, and columnist, Karen Andreola. With warmth and humor, Karen provides a wealth of insight, practical advice, and narratives, illustrating how educating "the Charlotte Mason way" actually works. In this book, you will discover how to recognize a "living book"; use narration; teach reading, spelling, composition, and vocabulary; appreciate great art, classical music, poetry, plays, and novels; keep a Nature Notebook for science; take part in hero-admiration for history, establish helpful habits; create a loving home atmosphere; and more.
