Charlotte Mason Blog Carnival




                                    Welcome to the Charlotte Mason Blog Carnival for July 2013

 Knowledge of Man: Literature 

To read Charlotte Mason's ideas on this subject see here.
 If any of the links don't work or you find they are not going where they should please let me know in the comments section. Could I encourage everyone to be a bit magnanimous and perhaps encourage one or two people whose blog posts you may not have left a comment on before? 'Never lose a chance of saying a kind word.' (William Makepeace Thackeray)

And now to the delights of the Carnival.........

Lanaya writes about Saying Goodbye to Old Friends at Delightful Education. I'm sure most of us can relate to her feelings!


The Study of Literature is the subject of Nebby's post at Letters From Nebby - what Charlotte Mason thought was appropriate literature for children.


  La Lecture by Berthe Morisot



Amy writes about her personal growth and its effect on changing her views on literature at Crossing the Brandywine

Mama Squirrel at Dewey's Treehouse  writes  about Pomegranates, Pears and Literature (yum!). Charlotte Mason's book lists are delicious.

 The Reader by Pierre Auguste Renoir

 


A glimpse into the Windy Hill Home School's Summer Break and a review and wrap up of Ambleside Online Year 2 are the topics Laurke is sharing on her posts.
