In it, she discusses a place called "Mansoul" (Man's Soul) and the people who live in it: "Lord Chief Explorer," (who represents imagination,) "Gluttony", "Rest", and lots of others. After introducing "Mansoul" and the "people," the rest of the books focuses on good or bad traits or habits, such as Courage, Kindness, Conscience, Pity, Love, Faith, etc. Charlotte Mason offers suggestions for how to improve these good habits or traits in your own life, and how to decrease the bad habits or traits. While it is a great idea, it can get annoying hearing these habits/traits spoken of as "people" and her continually referring to the "Mansoul." Also, as sometimes happens with older books directed toward children, it's hard to say what age this would be right for. It seems too advanced for very young children, but too young for older ones.The ideas in this book are somewhat mature and could be hard for a child to follow. At the same time, I read this book, and am older than the suggested "child" (16) and thought this book somewhat condescending at times (probably because she is speaking to a child) and I found the whole idea of "Mansoul" and the traits/habits as people rather annoying. I think this book would be best for a parent and younger child (8-10) to read together, or an older child (10-12) to read alone. All in all, I would say it is worth a read. Maybe not as a cover-to-cover type book, but still worth reading segments. I am giving it 3 stars, because I didn't really like or enjoy it, it was just okay.
