episode 103: YMB #103 The Role of Classic Children's Literature: A Conversation with Cheri Blomquist

When you have been homeschooling as long as I have it takes quite a bit to be surprised by a new resources. Before Austen Comes Aesop is a new book that was up to the task of turning my head.

This valuable guide for parents not only takes on the misguided idea that our kids need to read the most mature and difficult books at a young age, but also provides parents with the tools they need to create their own reading program using any books. Yes, there is a booklist, but it is not what you might expect. Instead of a subjective list of author favorites, what we have is a historical glimpse into the most influential children's literature of all times.

This resource (and this conversation) is not to be missed.
