My sister is at a conference right now about to listen to Susan Wise Bauer, author of The Well Educated Mind, speak on educating a distracted child, and I’m so jealous. It’s completely nerdy to be jealous of anyone attending a homeschool conference, I realize this, but I loved that book, and know she will have some serious wisdom to throw down.
If you’ve never heard of that book, check it out. It’s a great way to go through some of the classics of literature without feeling daunted. And although I don’t always agree with all of her conclusions and assertions, it never hurts to have someone go with you on your literary journeys.
