Item description for For the Love of Learning: Information and Resources for combining Charlotte Mason & Classical Education by Jenny Sockey...

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 bookstore 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about For the Love of Learning: Information and Resources for combining Charlotte Mason & Classical Education?

really not useful  Sep 2, 2008
I was really looking forward to receiveing this book because I am planning to combine CM and Classical education for our home school. However, I was sorely diappointed and feel it was a complete waste of money.

The overview on the two philosophies are very brief and insufficient for someone not already familiar with the philosophies.

The overview consists mostly of quotes and not the author's own synthesis of the informaiton.

The comparison of the two methods summarizing differences and similarities consists of 5 pages, 80% of which are quotes.

The information on combining the methods (the supposed thesis of the book) is barely 2 pages- it merely consists of a suggested daily schedule.

The resource list makes up the rest of the book and 75% of the resources are out of print and 20% are generally recommended on most CM or Classical websites for free.

It is too bad that twaddle like this could be published.

Using many quotes to illustrate her ideas, Sockey provides the overview that so many families need as they begin their homeschooling journey. A wonderful introduction to Classical Education and the Charlotte Mason method, especially beneficial to those new to homeschooling, Sockey provides ideas on combining both methods for a well-rounded educational experience for your child.

With over 120 pages of resources and book lists, especially useful to those incorporating American history into your studies, this is sure to be a resource you will refer back to all year long. The author writes in an engaging and easy manner, even the busiest mom will benefit from the short chapters.

Veteran homeschoolers don¹t pass this one by! You will find yourself nodding n agreement and jotting down notes of the many quotes that are included in this gem.

Don't Bother  Oct 30, 2003
This book provides a very very brief overview of some of the main points of the Charlotte Mason (CM) and Classical (CE) approaches to education, using lots of quotes to link the author's own brief comments. In my opinion there is not sufficient information provided on either CM or CE to provide basic information to someone unfamiliar with either approach, and if you are at all familiar with either approach I don't see why you would bother with this book. If you want a brief, easy-to-digest and informative introduction to CM, you would be far better to spend your time and money on Catherine Levision's "A Charlotte Mason Education". One of the CE sites such as will provide you with far more useful introductory information than will this book or look at one of the books such as "The Well-Trained Mind" or "Teaching the Trivium".

The author purports to discuss how to combine CM and CE, but doesn't offer any suggestions other than those that are very obvious (i.e. combine both methods) and doesn't offer any advice about addressing the differences between the two approaches.

Over half of the 120pp book consists of lists of books and resources, and over half of this list consists of recommendations related to American history and famous Americans. The book is so poorly written that personally I would not place any weight on the book/resource recommendations.

This is the only book about education that I have read that, in my opinion, has nothing of value to offer other than providing a number of great quotes from various people.
