The Home Education Series by Charlotte Mason
Our family would like to present you with a gift of appreciation. The CM community has been outstanding and generous, and we felt that everyone needs to have access to her words. So we set out to provide the most economical option of printed text. Any and all formatting from the original text has only been done to improve the reading experience.
This edition has been edited to include the American English spelling of words, original page numbers noted within the text for easy reference, translation of foreign phrases included in brackets, and formatting that more easily conveys the original author’s message. (Images below are taken from 3 separate volumes, not all from Volume 1.)
I had originally been offering links to order the books direct from the publisher. Amazon has updated this process. In an effort to keep my commitment to making these as affordable as possible, I have priced them on Amazon the lowest that I could, just over $60 for all 6 books.
A note regarding Amazon reviews…. please note the dates of the reviews on each product. These volumes are from Restored Feast Collections, released in September 2017, and are NOT pirated from Ambleside Online. Much time and effort was dedicated to these editions to provide you with the best experience.
