Episode #79: Books as Treasured Friends

Updated: Feb 14

This week, I'm back with Bruce and Sonya Manson for part two of our conversation. The Mansons have attended my seminars in California for years and years. They are amazing veteran homeschoolers! In this episode, we talk about their family's most treasured books and the way literature has impacted them over the years.

You'll hear about:

  • making children lovers of books

  • the power of biography

  • missionary stories

  • service projects

  • how my method informed the way Bruce taught in the public school

  • why doing school at home falls short
