For the Children’s Sake – Susan Schaeffer MacAulay
I borrowed this book from a friend earlier in the year and it’s one I wouldn’t mind having on my own shelf to look back to from time to time.
It’s basically an application of the ideas of Charlotte Mason. (This is a Wikipedia link but if you’re interested in her ideas, there are heaps of websites among the homeschooling community – google is your friend.)
I loved the ideas presented in this book, but the two that I know I will carry with me are 1) the idea of living books, and children learning from whole books and 2) lots and lots and lots of free (outdoor preferably) play. These are two things that particularly work well with home schooling and something we have plenty of time to enjoy.
