Every parent and teacher wants to give children the best education possible. Everyone would like education to be a joyous adventure and celebration of life, as well as a solid preparation for living. Sadly, most education today falls far short of this goal.
Susan Schaeffer Macaulay shows that it doesn't have to be this way. Education can be a wonderful, life-enriching, joyous experience.
For the Children's Sake is a book about what education can be, based first on a Christian understanding of what it means to be human—to be a child, a parent, a teacher—and on the Christian meaning of life. At the same time, it is deeply practical; the ideas have been tried and proven true by Susan and her husband Ranald Macaulay in their own family and school experience.
For the Children's Sake is a book that can help every parent and teacher awaken the young minds of their children and give them a new richness, stability, and joy for living.

"Less practical, how-to-structure-your-day, than Karen Andreola's book, but much better written. Macaulay has a much deeper understanding of philosophy, history, and education, so this is a superior read if you want to understand the Charlotte Mason method. But that said, it is very readable."
