I’m finally getting past the intro to Beauty in the Word, thanks to a Voxer bookclub and a paperback copy (I don’t like reading books on my iPad, and this one really needs to be read in print). It is very Catholic, which is another reason I’ve struggled to get into it, but there are many things I agree with him on, and so many connections to Charlotte Mason’s educational philosophy (indeed it seems he read her books). There were several quotable passages I could have shared today, but I chose this one from the end of Chapter 1, as I need the encouragement not to limit my kids’ education to only what they are interested in, even though that might meet with less resistance. 😉
Also read/listened to recently:
- Hubby: The Vision of the Anointed by Thomas Sowell – I felt this was a book Miss A would need to discuss with someone but my brain was not up to it, so I’m thankful hubby was willing to read it.
- Me: Our new Shakespeare play, The Comedy of Errors.
- Miss A: A tome of Emily Dickinson’s poetry, which she says she wants to read all the way through, even if it takes her several years. 😉
- Mr. D: He declared The Brendan Voyage “very interesting” after reading the first chapter, which made my heart happy. 🙂
- Mr. E: He’s been reading one of his Christmas books, Henry and the Chalk Dragon, aloud to his sister for the Read-Aloud Revival 31-Day Read-Aloud Challenge.
- Mr. L: Dick Whittington illustrated by Edward Ardizzone – I think I found my copy at a library sale.
- Little R: He got an Ezra Jack Keats treasury for Christmas, and thinks Goggles! is hilarious! 😀
