Encore Books

The books in the Encore series are available only as digital books. These books began as blog posts or blog series, and those blog posts are still available to read. However, for the sake of convenience, I’ve made these digital books available for those who might like to read them more conveniently. Some very slight changes were made to suit the new format, and in addition, there is bonus content in each book which is exclusive to the encore series.

Book 1:

A close look at principles thirteen, fourteen, and fifteen, which are the practical principles added to the philosophical ones, “for the use of teachers.” These are the practices Charlotte Mason found vital enough to include as principles.

Book 2:

Charlotte Mason thought she had found the answer to Comenius’s quest for “a liberal education for all.” This is an eclectic collection of observations about the many similarities in their thoughts and approach to education, in spite of the fact that they lived over 300 years apart.

Book 3:

This was not a blog series, but includes a collection of posts that I’ve written to address various questions about the link between Charlotte Mason and classical education. It does not contain absolute answers, but provides material for your own thoughtful consideration. (Hint: If you want to see which posts are included, use the “Look Inside” feature of the Kindle version.)

If you like the idea of loading up your e-reader with several books at once, I’ve collected these first three together in one.

Book 4 is only available for Kindle at the moment (click on the cover). Charlotte Mason gave us the principle that “education is the science of relations,” and in this glimpse into the mind of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, we find the source of many of her ideas on the subject. Charlotte Mason called Coleridge a great philosopher, and this book will help you understand why.
