"When Children Love to Learn is one of the better books I've seen on the Charlotte Mason approach. Elaine Cooper has done a phenomenal job of laying down the basic tenets parents of homeschoolers hold dear: a child must love to learn. Narration, living books, nature study-it's all here. Elaine covers a lot of ground to show how easy it can be to make learning enjoyable. Charlotte Mason fans will love this! Highly recommended for every homeschool reference library."

Good information but very dry reading. I ended up skipping to the middle of the book and reading from there. I still prefer Karen Andreolas book, Charlotte Mason The Companion. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Eli
