For the Children's Sake
Describes a philosophy of education based on the Charlotte Mason approach - an approach concerned as much with instilling good character and high morals in children than with learning basic skills. After acquiring basic abilities in the three R's, children learn through "living books" (as opposed to dry texts) and life experiences. Macaulay draws heavily on the philosophies of Charlotte Mason, but from a Christian viewpoint. Besides imparting Mason's philosophy and sharing her personal experiences as a homeschooled child, Susan shares the joy, freedom, and beauty possible in life and learning.
