Books in the Catholic Homeschool

Can you homeschool without a constant stream of books and a great homeschool library? Short answer … no! Just using textbooks isn’t a great strategy and will lead to burnout and resentment for both you and your children. As Charlotte Mason so perfectly put it: 

“One more thing is of vital importance. Children must have books, living books. The best is not too good for them. Anything less than the best is not good enough. And if it is needful to exercise economy, let go everything that belongs to soft and luxurious living before letting go the duty of supplying the books, and the frequent changes of books, which are necessary for the constant stimulation of the child’s intellectual life.”
