    One thought on “More Charlotte Mason Education: A Home Schooling How-To Manual”

    1. I am currently reading all things Charlotte Mason. This book and the one before it were a very good "condensation" of the original works of Charlotte Mason to give a good overview of her philosophy of education and some practical examples of how it works.

    2. This one is always good for refreshment and I am especially interested in her High School chapter as we are only a year away from this for my oldest!

    3. It was an easy read, and gave a glimpse into a Charlotte Mason education. I say glimpse because it wasn't enough to start teaching, rather it was a basic intro to Mason's style.

    4. I did not enjoy Levison's first book (Charlotte Mason Education), but thought I'd give her another chance since I at least pulled out a few pieces of useful information. Halfway into this book, I had only rolled my eyes twice and was mostly enjoying it. But then came chapter 10, and I became infuriated with her attitude toward public schools. I found her writing in that chapter to be extremely offensive and self-righteous. The appendix contains a lot of interesting resource lists (its only savin [...]

    5. I went into this book knowing almost nothing about Charlotte Mason or her educational methods. I started with this one only because it was the only book my library had on the Charlotte Mason method, and I've been wanting to read about different educational philosophies as we start homeschooling this fall. Even though this book is a follow-up book, I learned a lot by reading this! It was a great intro to CM, and it gave me lots of ideas that I am excited about incorporating into my kids' schoolin [...]

    6. Very poorly written. Also, the author really just describes what she does personally in her own homeschool, which sometimes is (but sometimes is certainly not) Charlotte Mason. She repeatedly states that one should take what they like from the philosophy and leave the rest. (Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of having and using a comprehensive educational philosophy like Miss Mason's?). At one point the author contrasts the "relaxed" feel of the CM method with the classical method, without [...]

    7. This author really rubs me the wrong way. I got a few ideas from it but mostly found it irritating. For example, she tried to compare Charlotte Mason to "unschooling" when CM is pretty far from it. Maybe she was trying to reach a broader homeschooling audience? She said that she "unschools" in the summer. Bah! Don't we all? I do appreciate her lists at the end of the book but I would definitely never buy it.

    8. Don't waste your time reading this book. The author herself says that anyone wanting to use Mason's philosophy to educate children should read Charlotte Mason's books. Take the author at her word and don't read this poorly written and edited book. For more, and specifically for why I say this book is poorly written:satiasreviews/201

    9. I probably would've liked it more if I'd read the first one first. But it's taking the library forever to get it to me, so I went ahead with the second. It's got some good information, but there's more of the author's own opinions and commentaries than I would've liked. i.e. It's okay to sway from pure C.M. teachings in this area but not in others. But all in all I got some useful information from it.

    10. This is the best author I've found so far about the Charlotte Mason approach to education. She writes about both philosophy and practical details. If you don't know about C.M her ideas are mainly used by homeschoolers but also a few private schools. The basics are: short, focused lessons, lots of time in nature, character building, living books (not textbooks), and plenty of time to play.

    11. This is not a discussion or summary of Mason's works. It's more a how to implement her method. I love how it's organized. It has just the information I need without having to dig around.I love this book and use it often. I highly recommend this book if you are interested in the Charlotte Mason method.

    12. This was an easy and quick book. Perfect introductory book. I got lots of great ideas but most importantly it inspired me and gave me confidence as I begin my first year of homeschooling. After finishing this book I realized that I've doing a lot of the things already with my children. Great book for any parent homeschooling or not.

    13. More useful and practical advice about the Charlotte Mason method. This is the first book that I have found that really delves into using the Charlotte Mason method in high school. Most others seemed geared to younger ages.

    14. I thought this book was really good, Although I've seen mixed reviews. If you are already familiar with CM than this book will help you. I wouldn't recommend it as a first book for introduction to CM, however I would recommend it to better educate in planning a CM schedule and curriculum.

    15. Good brief overview of her ideals about education--but not a book I'd recommend. I like her ideas of keeping a child's full attention for brief periods of time, but disagree with her philosophies regarding math.

    16. This offers some good ideas on classical education, but the writing itself is very dense and a little cultish.
