Living books are the heart of the Charlotte Mason method of education, and providing a wide variety of books is essential. Of special importance to families in this century is reading living books about and from the perspective of people of various ethnic backgrounds. Today's guest, Nicole Cottrell, describes her gift to the Charlotte Mason community of a database of diverse living books particularly of people of color. We also discuss several other places to find living books of all sorts.
Charlotte Mason spoke to the fears and anxieties of mothers in her day. Her counsel is exceedingly relevant today. The ADE ladies have invited Jessica Becker to the podcast to discuss one of our most prevalent problems in this cultural moment, the undercurrent that affects our homes and homeschool education: fear and anxiety.
