Build Your Own Library
"A Charlotte Mason inspired homeschool curriculum, but with a 21st century twist…
I wanted a curriculum that was rich in great literature, not just old fashioned tomes, but modern children’s literature as well. I wanted a curriculum that was history based but didn’t drown you in historical fiction. I wanted to make narration a priority, but in a way that was fun and easy. A curriculum that took passages from the books you and your child are reading and turned them into copywork in the elementary years and dictation at the middle school level. I wanted to incorporate art study that was connected to history and included fun art projects. And I wanted to include science – literature based in the elementary years, and I use Elemental Science’s logic stage program in the middle school years. It was a tall order – but our children are worth it."

Light + Lamp Homeschool
"This is not your average curriculum. We do things against the grain, and with a whole different mindset from the world. This curriculum will not be for everyone. If you’re looking for a super rigorous classical education, this is not for you. If you’re looking to find a calm, simpler, anxiety free zone in your homeschool, this is for you."
