It is hard not to be excited about using real books versus using textbooks. My husband hated school and so he thinks he hates to read and I always told him it was because he was never given the opportunity to read about what he was interested in learning. Recently we added a library “wall” to our house and this past week that wall immediately grabbed his attention. Last night he selected to read the book on eagles (his favorite animal) and was reading it aloud to me. He was thoroughly excited and interested in it. This is a rare moment in this household. 🙂 Charlotte Mason was truly a wise women in many respects.
