    One thought on “When Children Love to Learn: A Practical Application of Charlotte Mason's Philosophy for Today”

    1. I found this to be excellent and practical. I tend to prefer to build my practicalities on philosophy and this book gives just the right amount of both. When I first started reading it last August I thought my days of homeschooling were over but as I finish it up here in May I am thinking of how to arrange my next homeschool year with a new student. This book has given me the tools I need to add structure to our days.

    2. This book really didn't add anything to my knowledge of how to teach under the Charlotte Mason philosophy beyond what I had gained for free off the internet. I had hoped it would have more modern applications like the title implies, but things like the internet and computers and such are only briefly mentioned in asides and not as elements of any curriculum. The book doesn't even give a complete curriculum outline. It just gives samples from a couple grades, not enough to even build my own curri [...]

    3. Originally read this in 2010 when I bought it from a Carole Joy Seid conference. I am so glad I highlighted it! Re-read the highlights and more and thoroughly enjoyed it. This was one of the reasons we decided to do this method of homeschooling. I love it and need to go back to this method.b 2/2/16

    4. I've read most books on Charlotte Mason's philosophy but somehow I had missed this one. I'm loving it. It has reminded me why I chose homeschooling in the first place. I want my daughter to LOVE learning not just graduate. It's been a great refresher and a real encouragement to this burned out homeschool mom.

    5. I did this as a (very) slow read so I feel like it was harder for me to get back into it each time I picked this book up. The first part is essays written by various educators so i found some I loved and thought were helpful and some I didn’t like so much. If you are a Charlotte Mason purist, or wanting to be, you will find this book helpful. If you’re wanting to learn more about Charlotte Mason and her philosophy I think this book would be enlightening as well. I am just finding that, while [...]

    6. What a refreshing read for those of us trying to apply Charlotte Mason principals in our daily life. Not since, For the Children's Sake, have I been so motivated to keep going to the heart of Charlotte Mason teachings and not focusing entirely on just the academic achievements of such an education. A Charlotte Mason Companion book has been invaluable tool for decades but it is best use as a reference guide to go back and refresh. I was able to sit and read this within a good amount of time and s [...]

    7. Practical and encouraging. This book was foundational in my understanding Charlotte Mason. And it spurred me to want to read her original volumes.

    8. A practical application, indeed. This text provided not only a lovely summary of the fundamental philosophy behind the Mason method but also gave specific and concrete examples of their implementation. I found it both inspiring and helpful.

    9. Lots of helpful information and suggestions for educating with the Charlotte Mason approach. I especially liked their procedure lists for nature study, picture study, and music appreciation.

    10. Anyone who shares an interest in educational philosophy will at some point need to look at Charlotte Mason, an educator during the Victorian era whose vision lives on in today's learning landscape. This volume makes her work accessible through the editor's forward and instructive essays by educators well versed in her methods.Having attended several Mason workshops during the years I was raising my children I found her methods to be very duplicatable and effective. So it was with interest I read [...]

    11. I decided to read this because it seems to be one of the two books that inpires many people to pursue a Charlotte Mason education for their children. I think it would be useful to keep on hand to give to other moms who are having trouble figuring out what this sort of education looks like practically. However, after having spent countless hours on the Ambleside Online forums and having taught my children this way for four years the material here was mostly review because I've already worked out [...]

    12. I have to actually discipline myself to make it through a nonfiction book from cover to cover, and I am glad that I did with this one. This is technically my first introduction to Charlotte Mason's philosophy of teaching and I find that I agree with most of her major principles. As to the book itself, it was set up well and I found myself duly educated with a direction to take.All in all: well worth the read.

    13. Nice ideas, but few practical suggestion.This book claims to be a practical application of Charlotte Mason's ideas, but it seems instead to be a lot of (albeit poetic) philosophizing. You will not find book lists, discipline plans, or practical teacher to teacher advice. This book left me thinking a Charlotte Mason school sounds very nice in theory, but I have little more notion of how to implement it as a teacher than I did before reading this book.

    14. A good explanation of Charlotte Mason's educational philosophy. It was a bit dry (although that may be unavoidable given the nature of the subject). I would like to have seen a bit more about application as it applies to today's academic environment and also some statistics about how these children do upon entering public schools and colleges.

    15. I had started reading this book a year ago but was just having a hard time getting through it. I stopped and now that my oldest will be starting kindergarten in the fall, I soaked up everything and found it very helpful. My advice is if you only have young children, just enjoy your time with them then read this when you are really going to start Charlotte Mason schooling for your child.

    16. I read this with my CM Book Club back in 2005, and am re-reading it again with some of the ladies from my book club now. It is empowering and affirming to me, now that we have three CM homeschooled graduates.A CM education can help foster and feed children into incredible, individual, strong, confident adults.

    17. I just couldn't get interested in this book. It wasn't what I was looking for. I was hoping for something that would help me put the charlotte mason method into practice. Unfortunately this is not what I was looking for, but it was what my library had to offer.

    18. 3.5 stars.Good solid overview of Charlotte Mason's philosophies, but I found For The Children's Sake much more inspiring and A Charlotte Mason Companion much more helpful in applying Miss Mason's ideas.

    19. I highly recommend this book for every parent who has a nagging sense that education in America today isn't quite right but isn't exactly sure why. This book will give you hope that there are schools out there that are doing it right but you have to know what to look for.

    20. An excellent resource for those wishing to implement Charlotte Mason's methods. Although much is geared in many ways for application within a school setting, this is also helpful for those that want to homeschool using this philosophy.

    21. The book's title says it all. If you would like to apply Charlotte Mason's philosophy in your home, buy this book. It's doable, and workable. I've been homeschooling the CM way for almost five years now, with great results.

    22. Wonderful! Motivates and inspires teachers and parents to teach their children with the knowledge that they are fully human and fully capable of grasping what the Lord has for them to learn about His world.

    23. Great refresher for mecely summarizing what the Charlotte Mason method of education is & what it's not. This resource goes to the heart of the subjects. It's about a special way of viewing children and education, mixed in with some great proven methods of learning.

    24. Excellent thoughts on Charlotte Mason's method for schools and home schools. I really appreciated some of their explanations for practical application of the methods. It was encouraging and will stretch me in my own teaching.

    25. The subtitle is misleading, to my mind, as the majority of the essays address public school teachers applying Charlotte Mason methods in the classroom, with just a brief nod to homeschooling parents. It wasn't the book I was looking for.

    26. So soThis book deals with Charlotte Mason theory. It is not so much a "practical application" as the title would suggest.

    27. It was ok. For homeschooling there are better resources than this one. For method, read charlotte's original works.
