For the Children's Sake

For the Children's Sake

This is the book that popularized the phrase "twaddle-free learning." Here, MacAulay presents the kernels of Charlotte Mason's educational ideas within a Christian context. Ever since I discovered this book, I've been recommending it as foundational reading for those beginning to homeschool. This book will inspire and encourage you with both the whys and the how-to's of homeschooling. It will help you begin with a proper perspective on education. This is a must for new homeschoolers with younger children preschool through about fourth grade.
