I am a bit new to the Charlotte Mason style of home education, but what I've seen so far I really like. I found a really good web site, Homeschooling Down Under, and it seems to be full of all sorts of really good ideas. I especially think it is great to have someone from New Zealand who has a vision to create a special homeschooling space just for her own people.
You can download their free e-book, which is a geography textbook written by Mason revised in 1925. Elementary Geography, Book 1 was written to introduce young children to the study of Geography in a step by step, reasonable and interesting manner. Even though my youngest is 8, this book has been a great read-aloud!
Keep the homeschool fires going, folks!
