For the Childrens Sake

For the Childrens Sake

by Susan Macauley

For the Children's Sake is a book about what education can be--for your child, in your home, and in your school. It is based first on a Christian understanding of what it means to be human--to be a child, a parent, a teacher--and on the Christian meaning of life. At the same time it is deeply practical. Many of the central ideas have been tried and proven true over a century in almost every kind of educational situation. The ideas are in fact so true that they can be applied equally at home, in different schools, in Africa, in the inner city, and in your own community. But they are also ideas which Susan and her husband Ranald Macaulay have tried and proven in their own family and school experience. "For the Children's Sake is a book which can help every parent and teacher awaken the young minds of their children and give them a new richness, stability, and joy for living.

Lessons At Blackberry Inn

Lessons At Blackberry Inn

by Karen Andreola

In Lessons at Blackberry Inn, life is seen through Carol's eyes, the eyes of a homemaker in the 1830s. Her busy days are spent teaching her children in the mornings and canning their bountiful harvest in the afternoons. Guests at Blackberry Inn appreciate Carol's delicious country meals served family style on the long table. When her feet ache or her emotions begin to get the better of her, Carol's husband, Michael, has a calming affect. She is supported by his ongoing devotion. Therefore it is no surprise that when the pastor of the church asks a big favour of Carol, Michael has a heart-to-heart talk with her about her involvement. She is expecting their third child and he is concerned that she may be already doing too much. As learning is not limited to the schoolbook, life's lessons impart wisdom to a variety of characters, both young and old, all living in the country village of Appleton. Can be read as a stand-alone inspirational and instructional homeschool guide for mums, or as a sequel to Karen's popular Pocketful of Pinecones. Practical homeschooling ideas, the Charlotte Mason method, and the forgotten value of homemaking fill every nook and cranny of its pages.

Pocketful of Pinecones

Pocketful of Pinecones

by Karen Andreola

Review by Jane Claire + Becky Jane Lambert, best-selling authors of Five in a Row series: I was refreshed this week. I was delighted. I was touched by a book I'd kept hearing about- Pocketful of Pinecones by Karen Andreola. Written in a story form, Karen demonstrates in nearly every sentence, wonderful ways to teach, enjoy and nurture your children. But, the book is more than that. Failing the words to adequately describe how deeply this book touched my heart, I'm grateful to include my daughter's synopsis of Pocketful of Pinecones. Becky Jane writes: "A unique, surprising and utterly delightful book recently found its way into my hands. Authored by Karen Andreola, Pocketful of Pinecones is a book unlike any other. I truly cannot think of single book I've read that holds as much passion, instruction and inspiration as this unassuming paperback.
