I really like this book. It's not actually my style, but I like hearing all their ideas. I kinda feel like, if you follow THIS book, then you don't have to keep wondering if you're educating well enough. In other words, you don't have to do MORE than what they suggest.
I also love how they give a VERY DETAILED list of LIVING BOOKS and otherwise to read on historical topics. Or for literature. That's worth buying the book for right there!

I had seen the history lessons they promote and had read some of the first book and I remember that I didn't approve of some of the lessons about other cultures worshiping false gods. Yes, it's a FACT, but I would want them to explain BETTER why it was wrong.
I do like another history program called The Mystery of History...they look kind of the same-I used to get them mixed up. But I haven't read from all the books yet.
I need to buy them!

And we all lived happily ever after...

Build up the Culture of Life!
We can change hearts, by bringing up the next generation to embrace Life at an early age.
If only moral people are willing to do that, mass abortion will end.

Sorry! I didn't have room to write the full author's name. I'll write them here.
Jessie Wise and her daughter Susan Wise Bauer wrote a HUGE book about Classical Education.

Do any of YOU use this style of teaching? I know little about it, but I bought the book this week for $40. (and THEN I spilled pop on it.)

I began with the Raymond and Dorothy Moore viewpoint and I still like it. But if you want your kids to have a highly detailed academic plan, this book would be GREAT! I recommend it for EVERY educators home, whether you use all the info or not.
(Personally, I found it lacks the Christian emphasis that we require in OUR home).
But that wouldn't stop me from utilizing the info that that they share.
Also, if you're feeling inadequate and don't really know what you're doing, I would say that THIS book will give you an example of the HIGHEST level you could reach. and you would know that you don't have to do MORE than the book suggests.
MY OWN education had pretty much NONE of this, and I"M still alive. lol

So anyway, LET'S HAVE A READING CLUB!
Go buy it or borrow it from your library or trusting friend (just don't spill your pop on it.) and let's share our thoughts!
