Format: Paperback
Mrs. MacAulay interprets the principles of Charlotte Mason, an English school teacher with ideas similar to Maria Montessori (but grounded in Scripture). Miss Mason lived from 1842-1923 and her writing is a bit flowery for today's readers. This book gets to the essentials of her philosophy outlined in this mottto "I am, I can, I ought, I will". What that means is basically that teachers need to help children understand their deep value to God, expose them to many activities so they can discover their gifts, teach the unchanging morals of Scripture and guide children in making moral choices for themselves.

As a parent considering homeschooling, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It presents an appealing overview of what homeschooling and family life can be at its best. It takes the ideas and methods of Charlotte Mason and shows how they can be incorporated into any family, whether homeschooling or not. The information on "living" books makes the book a must read for any parent.

This book is great for all parents/teachers to read. The things learned(or just reinforing what we have always known) can be applied in our everyday lives with our children. It helped to remind me of what childhood is for. A chance for our children to learn about the world they live in at their own pace. Through their own thoughts, feelings and desires, learning what is right for them as individuals. Yet not giving us the right to neglet some basic requirements they will need to get through life as adults. We can teach our children the Three R's and still have them enjoy learning. Education is a life long process to be enjoyed, anticipated and used to our benifit. Here is my favorite thought from this book "...an education which shall qualify their children for life rather than for earning a living." What a great idea! Children ready for life. A desire we all have for our children and a way to accomplish that goal is written out for us in this book.

This book set the vision in my mind for the type of education I'd like to provide for my children -- warm, intelligent, full of life. A living education full of living books, living ideas, living people! For the past eight years, I've tried to re-read this book at least once a year to keep my vision fresh and my mind focused. This is the one book I always recommend -- or give as a gift -- to anyone as they first consider the idea home education. A real treasure!
