What is a living book?

10:30am ~
"I can't wait to tonight when we can have our tea, have a bath and get into your bed and keep reading our new book "Wy-lah the black cockatoo"
~ Quote Joshua - 8yo
What more can I say?
"The children should have the joy of living in far lands, in other persons, in other times--a delightful double existence; and this joy they will find, for the most part, in their story books." ~ Charlotte Mason Vol. 1 Part IV--Some Habits Of Mind - Some Moral Habits, p.153)


  1. Hi Sarah,
    It sounds as if Joshua is thoroughly enjoying the new book.

    I love your new header - it's so colourful!

  2. So glad you're enjoying Wy-Lah. That's why it's called a Living Book for sure!!

  3. Gorgeous! Your kids are so blessed to be home educated by their lovely mum!

  4. I love your bible quote for this week. Just dropping in to check out your blog. :)

  5. Simple pleasures are the best!

  6. A new friend has been encouraging me to read about Charlotte Mason, so I will definitely return to your blog as I do! She loves her and I like what she's told me so far!
