"Catherine [did] and excellent job of conveying Charlotte Mason's ideas in a user friendly format. Quoting frequently from Mason's work, Levison explains and clarifies Mason's ideas while also adding her own ideas resulting from her years of experience teaching this way in a home schooling setting. I found these books extremely practical and thoughtful."
—Cathy Duffy, author of the Christian Home Educators' Curriculum Manuals

"After providing an excellent "how-to manual" for the different school subjects in her first book, A Charlotte Mason Education, Catherine Levison has expanded on it in her new book, More Charlotte Mason Education. In this book Levison tackles some important issues that Charlotte Mason users encounter. My favorites include: What are the Liberal Arts? How Short Lessons are Applied and High School. She closes the book with helpful guidelines for further study."
—Maggie Dail, MA, Master Teacher of a Charlotte Mason School, Education Consultant of Master Enterprises Learning Center

"In More Charlotte Mason Education, Catherine shares at a deeper level hints, practical how-to's, inspiring quotations, and the rich and uplifting philosophy for which this approach to education has become well known. She shares with us the depth of her understanding on the many aspects of education she has experienced. The section on coping strategies for crises shows me that she is speaking from what she has learned from the lessons of life. Not only does she empathize, but she makes me feel comfortable with doing what needs to be done just to live, while still nurturing my children."
—Tina Farewell, Lifetime Books & Gifts

  A Great How-to Manual
FireflyMom of Oregon, 8/12/2011
I love the Charlotte Mason method, but I always found it frustrating that many books on this method were geared toward elementary aged students. Thankfully, Catherine Levison wrote "More Charlotte Mason Education" for families like ours! In this book, she goes more in depth about how to implement the method, and talks about the how's and why's of continuing with it through the high school years. There is also a helpful Q & A section, sample schedules, and a book and supply list.
  Practical Ideas

After I read her first book I thought this would be more of the same but it is not. It explores other CM practices that are not in the first book. Both are very good books if you want to see what a CM education looks like with practical ideas.
