Author Lanaya Gore and illustrator Twila Farmer have brought the story of Charlotte Mason and her educational ideas to life in this vibrant, beautiful picture book. The seemingly ordinary teacher living in Victorian England inspired an extraordinary movement in education, first in her own time, and now in ours. Untold numbers of children around the world are learning according to Charlotte Mason’s philosophy, both at home and in classrooms. Lanaya Gore’s engaging prose and Twila Farmer’s breathtaking paintings together tell the story of the woman who devoted herself to bringing worlds of wonder to children—children whom she insisted were persons of worth and potential—through a generous feast of living books and the natural world.
“The illustrations are delightful, wonderfully evoking the era in which Charlotte Mason lived, and the beauty of the Lake District of England. May this book inspire a fresh interest and appreciation for the worlds of wonder and knowledge that Miss Mason loved.”
