"Catherine did] and excellent job of conveying Charlotte Mason's ideas in a user friendly format. Quoting frequently from Mason's work, Levison explains and clarifies Mason's ideas while also adding her own ideas resulting from her years of experience teaching this way in a home schooling setting. I found these books extremely practical and thoughtful." --Cathy Duffy, author of the Christian Home Educators' Curriculum Manuals "After providing an excellent "how-to manual" for the different school subjects in her first book, A Charlotte Mason Education, Catherine Levison has expanded on it in her new book, More Charlotte Mason Education. In this book Levison tackles some important issues that Charlotte Mason users encounter. My favorites include: What are the Liberal Arts? How Short Lessons are Applied and High School. She closes the book with helpful guidelines for further study." --Maggie Dail, MA, Master Teacher of a Charlotte Mason School, Education Consultant of Master Enterprises Learning Center "In More Charlotte Mason Education, Catherine shares at a deeper level...hints, practical how-to's, inspiring quotations, and the rich and uplifting philosophy for which this approach to education has become well known. She shares with us the depth of her understanding on the many aspects of education she has experienced. The section on coping strategies for crises shows me that she is speaking from what she has learned from the lessons of life. Not only does she empathize, but she makes me feel comfortable with doing what needs to be done just to live, while still nurturing my children." --Tina Farewell, Lifetime Books & Gifts

Great Addition to Her First Book! Sep 16, 2007
I have found all of Catherine's books to be a wonderful asset and addition to my CM library. Along with using her first book almost on a daily basis in my homeschooling day, I also use her second book just as much! It's a great extension to her first book. It has great information such as, Keeping a Century Book, High School, What are the Liberal Arts, How Short Lessons are Applied, Sample Schedules, Book and Supply List, For Further Study, etc. Also, if anyone has any questions on how to apply CM to their high schooler as well as an elementary age student, this is a great resource!
Nice lists, horrible editing Apr 2, 2007
I was looking to this book as an expansion on Levinson's first "Charlotte Mason Education." While it does provide more "meat" than the first, I can't get past some of the glaring grammatical errors. Her misuse of the comma has plagued the first half of the book, to the point where I have to re-read sentences to figure out what the idea was supposed to be. At another point, she means to refer to a "vicious" cycle, yet she spells it "viscous." It is so hard to respect the information coming from one of the "Charlotte Mason experts" when she can't even proofread her work or find a good editor to do it for her. I'm not trying to be nasty, but I think it gives homeschoolers a bad name when books claiming that we "know how to teach our kids" are published and then contain so many glaring errors. I hope that future editions will correct the problems so that others don't lose respect for Levinson like I have. On the positive side, her book lists are excellent, and are an amazing resource for those looking for living books in each subject area. It is worth the purchase for that reason alone.
Worth Buying Twice! Mar 19, 2004
I had to buy this book twice. I liked it so much that I recommended it and loaned it to a friend who never returned it. I purchased it a second time because I missed it so much. Very enjoyable reading with a great book list. I refer to it often along with "A Charlotte Mason Companion" and "Educating the Wholehearted Child." So go ahead. Buy two of each! Your friends will enjoy it/them too!
Best overview of Charlotte Mason methods and ideas available Mar 16, 2004
I've been homeschooling for 10+ years and have been collecting books on Charlotte Mason's homeschooling methods for that long, as well. This little book is the best resource I've found for actually "doing" homeschooling in a Charlotte Mason style. It's not overly rigid or difficult to understand. Just pick a topic you want to do with your kids, open to that chapter, and you're off and running! I recommend this book to anyone and everyone who's interested in a child-friendly, learning-rich homeschooling environment for their home and school. I've also known several people who have been rescued from homeschool burn-out by reading, and implementing, this book. A+
Not that great. Dec 12, 2003
I did not appreciate this book. It is an uptight and rigid book, which contains misinformation. The author often presents her opinions as facts, and her theological ideas leave a lot to be desired. . From now on, I will buy Dorothy and Raymond Moore's books.
