The Well Trained Mind

This book was wonderful to read. I only got about halfway through the Pert Age (11 - 14) when I stopped because with Cyan only being in 1st grade, it didn't really apply to me.

They bring up many ideas. Things I agree with and things I don't. They have a strong emphasis on early education and how vital it is for the love to learn that most children loose through public schooling. Early reading is very crucial to her method.

She follows the classical education model, and provides TONS of resources, ideas and even schedules which have worked for her, her daughter, and her daughters children. It is a wonderful homeschooling resource and I recomend it to everyone... not just homeschoolers, but anyone who wants to know more about education in general.
