  1. A Charlotte Mason Companion Review by Diane Mahon
    Pros: Concise
    Cons: Alot to absorb

    This book changed my life as a home schooler. I read it over a summer which was the best time to learn about Charlotte Mason’s methods and plan the next year. It all just makes so much sense, but the real testimony is that I started introducing it during that summer and saw my previously struggling learners start to retain things like I had never seen before. A great book to invest in since there is a lot in there and you will want to refer back to it.

  2. A Charlotte Mason Companion Review by Donna
    Pros: Great book, wonderful ideas

    I love this book and implemented many of the methods, especially when my kids were elementary age. Narration, Fine art study, Nature study, Living History books, etc., all these things I still implement in our schooling. Well worth the money.

  3. A Charlotte Mason Companion Review by Theresa Walker
    Pros: Fantastic book

    Karen gives a terrifc explanation of the Charlotte Mason methods & I love the many, many ideas & suggestions for implementing the information! If you are considering Charlotte Mason methods, this is a MUST HAVE!

  4. A Charlotte Mason Companion Review by Julie Scott
    Pros: great book on Charlotte Mason principles, can skip around or read it front to back

    Delightful book! I agree, this is a great way to learn about Charlotte Mason’s approach to education. Not just about home education, but really raising a child with tenderness and understanding, yet also with discipline this is a thoughtful book and one that deserves to be read over and over (at least, if you’re like me & often need reminders!). The chapters in this book are nicely contained so that you can skip ahead to subjects you’re more interested in at the moment. I mostly read it front to back and need to pull it out again. Bring your notebook or highlighter! Many good ideas for your own homeschool and reading list too.

  5. A Charlotte Mason Companion Review by Nicole Hale
    Pros: easy to read and packed full of ideas
    Cons: BIG book - can be pricy and take a while to read all the way through

    I absolutely loved this book!!! I wish I could have been educated this way. It just makes sense! Karen Andreola does a throuough job explaining Charlotte Mason’s approach, methods, and idealogy. If you only read one book to learn about the Charlotte Mason approach to homeschooling, make this that one book! It is considered the “bible” of all Charlotte Mason-ers. I keep coming back to it all the time for more ideas or to refresh my tired spirit. I also recommend all of Karen Andreola’s books. You will be hooked and fall in love with the Charlotte Mason approach!
