About the Author
Karen Andreola is the author of the perennial bestseller A Charlotte Mason Companion: Personal Reflections on The Gentle Art of Learning™. The Andreolas created The Gentle Art of Learning™ as their company brand as it represents their personal interpretation and application of the Charlotte Mason method of education during the years they homeschooled their children from kindergarten through grade 12. The Andreolas were responsible for the modern day revival of the Charlotte Mason method of education dating back to 1988 when they republished Charlotte Mason's 6 vol. Original Homeschooling Series. The modern day Charlotte Mason movement has been based largely on Karen's practical interpretations and writings. Karen was editor of the Parents' Review Magazine for Home Training and Culture for 6 years, conducted and promoted home support groups, wrote for Practical Homeschooling Magazine, Homeschooling Today, and The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. She has been a keynote speaker for the Charlotte Mason method, The Gentle Art of Learning™, along with other topics such as parenting and Mother Culture®. She is also one of America's most respected homeschool product reviewers. Her other books include: Pocketful of Pinecones, Lessons at Blackberry Inn, Simply Grammar, Story Starters, and a revision of the classic Beautiful Girlhood. Ladies will enjoy reading her inspiring blog: Moments with Mother Culture®.

Another very good Charlotte Mason style resource is called Real Learning in the Heart of the Home, by Elizabeth Foss. Although the book is written from a Catholic perspective and I am not Catholic, it was another very helpful resource.
Andreola has also taken a very personal approach in this book. You feel as if you are taking tea with a trusted friend as she reveals her personal testimonies, and narratives. I thought this was a crucial underlying strength in this work, because I found Charlotte Mason's philosophies to be complicated and arcane at first glance; whereas reading this book quiets your spirit and makes this an enjoyable journey. I also found tactful admonition for the preconceived notions I conjured up about Charlotte Mason and her so-called "gentle learning" approach. Take my advice, don't believe everything you hear on a chat board. Peruse this marvelous overview to get the facts, and then make up your mind as to whether this makes sense for your home school.
Immensely enjoyable and valuable guide. Karen Andreola truly is the perfect Charlotte Mason "Companion"!
