- For the Children's Sake
by Susan S. MacAulay
Shows parents and teachers how children's learning experiences can be extended to every aspect of life, giving them a new richness, stability, and joy for living.
Every parent and teacher wants to give his or her children the best education possible. We hope that the education we provide is a joyful adventure, a celebration of life, and preparation for living. But sadly, most education today falls short of this goal.
For the Children's Sake is a book about what education can be, based on a Christian understanding of what it means to be human-to be a child, a parent, a teacher-and on the Christian meaning of life. The central ideas have been proven over many years and in almost every kind of educational situation, including ideas that Susan and Ranald Macaulay have implemented in their own family and school experience.
For the Children's Sake will benefit parents and teachers in any educational setting-homeschooling, public school, or private school. This new edition features an updated cover design.
- For the Love of Learning
by Jenny Sockey
From the Back Cover
After more than twenty years Homeschooling my children and other people's children, I am a passionate believer in the combined Charlotte Mason-Classical Education approach to education. I have four grown Children and five grandchildren with number six on the way. I started a used homeschool book store in 1990 that grew so much that it became the oldest and the largest one in the country. I have discussed every method of Homeschooling imaginable with thousands of people nationwide and I am adamant that this is the best method out there. It will develop a natural "love of Learning" that the children will thrive on.
I give you a synopsis of both Charlotte Mason and Classical Education and then proceed to show you the similarities and differences and how they can be lovingly combined to give the children a "Love of Learning" that will never end. I also give you a book list and resources by subject that are not typically found in other lists for your information and use. Anyone who wants to nurture and develop their child's natural "love of Learning" will benefit from this book.

- When Children Love to Learn: A Practical Application of Charlotte Mason's Philosophy for Today
by Elaine Cooper
It can’t be denied—children have an inherent desire to know. Teachers and parents can either encourage this natural inquisitiveness or squelch it. There is joy in the classroom when children learn—not to take a test, not to get a grade, not to compete with each other, and not to please their parents or their teachers—but because they want to know about the world around them!
Both Christian educators and parents will find proven help in creating a positive learning atmosphere through methods pioneered by Charlotte Mason that show how to develop a child’s natural love of learning. The professional educators, administrators, and Mason supporters contributing to this volume give useful applications that work in a variety of educational settings, from Christian schools to homeschools.
