This weeks giveaway is from Living Book Press. Anthony, the owner of Living Book Press, is a fellow Charlotte Mason Homeschooler in Australia. He very quickly realized that many of the books recommended in different Charlotte Mason curricula have gone out of print and works tirelessly to remedy that problem! What I love about Living Book Press is the quality and effort Anthony puts into each book! So many of the books are fantastic! One of my favorites is the Burgess Book series because he is the only one who has reprint them in color!
Anthony has been quite generous and has donated an entire set of Charlotte Mason’s original 6 volume series. This series is the basis for the educational philosophy we used to create Ani ve-ami, and it is worth reading for yourself! Charlotte Mason was an English educator at the turn of the 20th century. What makes her philosophy worth using today is her belief that “children are born persons.” In a day and age where people are constantly trying to analyze and breakdown education into an efficient, assembly line to produce the highest performing students, we need to remember that children are people, not robots to be programmed. Charlotte Mason has a wealth of knowledge beyond this simple, yet foundational, first principle, and she was so up on the very latest scientific ideas that as a School Psychologist, I can tell you that very little of what she wrote has proved inaccurate by modern science!
