Home Schoolers are Turning to Charlotte Mason Methods
In the Charlotte Mason method we care deeply that the children
develop a love for learning. Mason warned the parent to not kill
that love. At the same time we expose the children to a wide,
generous, lively smorgasbord of an education. By Catherine Levison.
This approach advocates reading good books from original sources
and spending lots of time in nature. Catherine Levison, author
of A Charlotte Mason Education, explains what
this method is for those who wish to delve more into the subject.

contact with nature. She really means every day!
