Product Description:

Charlotte Mason wrote extensively of the purpose and promise of a notebook-inspired education, and many modern authors have attempted to encapsulate and inspire a new generation of notebook enthusiastsyet few have done so as poignantly as Laurie Bestvater. Beginning with an overview of notebooking, the author guides us through an array of topics to inspire children (and adults!) to feel comfortable with the blank slate that overwhelms those new to the art. She then returns to the vision of self-education through notebooking before guiding us through setting up the "self-activity" or structure of notebooks. She concludes with the life-long benefits: development of imagination; inner growth (spiritual disciplines and character); and relationships with God, man and the universe in which we live. The extensive appendix includes recommend supplies, samples, general lesson plan template,

Way of the Will

chart, additional resources, bibliography, glossary and notes. A tremendous resource for those seeking more support for a notebooking lifestyle; reminiscent of Charlotte Mason and the Parents National Education Union (PNEU) and one that you will refer to in years to come. 193 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

Publisher Description:

"Composition books and blank journals are readily available at every big box and corner store, available so inexpensively as to be common and ironic as we reach that digital dominion, the projected 'paperless culture.' Shall we despair the future of the notebook? Is the practice an anachronism in an age where one's thoughts and pictures, doings and strivings are so easily recorded on a smartphone or blog,and students in even the youngest classrooms are handed electronic tablets with textbooks loaded and worksheets at the ready? Or is there something indispensable in the keeping of notebooks without which human beings would be the poorer?" The Living Page invites the reader to take a closer look in the timeless company of 19th century educator, Charlotte Mason.

Many good reviews about notebook keeping
Charmel-Julia A on Jun 10, 2020
I'm a devotee of the Charlotte Mason approach, although I myself only had a brush with it during high school (poetry study and picture study around the table with younger siblings). One thing I've never been able to understand the importance of, though, is all those notebooks--but since I long ago learned to trust Miss Mason's ideas and opinions, with this purchase I hope to learn how to appreciate and apply the principles and practices for successful notebook keeping for our future homeschool.

Lacks Simplicity and Practicality
I consider Charlotte Mason to be quite practical and simple. The richness in vocabulary through great literature and poetry is one thing, but in a book that is trying to help people learn about how to notebook it just comes across as confusing and pretentious. This book had some great information and the author has extensive experience with a variety of notebooking, but having to wade through the wordiness was just frustrating and I gave up. I was tired of wading through endless blogs and buying useless ebooks from other homeschoolers giving info on notebooking. I thought a practical handbook would be the best help, with concise and how to type information. This book was anything but.
