Laura of Harvest Lane CottageCarthage, MOAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Freedom for homeschool mothersNovember 1, 2020Laura of Harvest Lane CottageCarthage, MOAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This was an excellent book on home education and mother culture. I wish I'd had the confidence to implement Charlotte Mason's principles in greater depth as my children grew. Nevertheless, Karen Andreola greatly influenced me with her book, A Charlotte Mason Education. This book, Mother Culture, picks up where that one left off and gives even greater details about how to keep the joy of learning and celebrating life as you home educate your children.
Mother this is the book you're looking for to release you and your children from the drudgery and boredom of workbooks and dry textbooks.
Mrs. W.5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent ResourceMarch 28, 2019Mrs. W.Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There are 40 chapters with such titles as "Mommy's Mittens;" "Bringing Back the Moral and Patriotic Stir;" and "A Walk will Do You Good." Each chapter is full of calming words of encouraging wisdom. There are many thoughts to ponder and to bring cheer and peace.
There are over 80 gorgeous, black-and-white vintage illustrations, many of them covering an entire page. These are inspiring and peaceful, adding to the gentleness of the book.
Karen shares personal stories from her own life which were fascinating to read. (I found myself smiling frequently. She has such a charming sense of humor.) There are little quotes sprinkled throughout the book from Charlotte Mason, H.W. Beecher, Charles Spurgeon, Milton Berle, and many more. There are questions at the end of each chapter - to help us apply the lessons to our own lives and circumstances.
Each chapter is thick and full of ideas, wisdom, encouragement, and provides a rich education for the reader - in both motherhood and homeschooling.
Readers will come away from reading this book with a sense of relief. They will have obtained a dose of courage to live each day with a happiness and a focus on the beautiful task of motherhood, wifehood, and home education.
