Out of 9 reviews on Christian Book Distributors all 9 people gave this book a 5 star rating. Here are some of their comments:
There are chapters devoted to helping parents to use the Trivium with other methods such as Charlotte Mason as well as a discussion of some methods that do not fit well with the Trivium such as Unschooling. These chapters contain discussions and explanations of each method. This would be very valuable for those approaching educating their child for the first time as they investigate what method they will us.
Teaching the Trivium did not bring me complexity and stress but FREEDOM! It will nourish your tired researching soul.
