Baskets of Books

"Studies have shown that the more books in a child's home the more likely that the child will be intelligent.  The books in this home are not confined to the learning room but are esily available in every room in the house. They are in baskets in the family room, the living room, and the bathroom.  They are on bedside tables, in bags to take to the pool, and on tapes in the car.  And they are not the dumbed-down, insipid books that Charlotte Mason would call "twaddle." They are books of high moral quality, full of worthy ideas and fine language.  They are living books."--from Real Learning: Education in the Heart of the Home

I've tried to share my baskets with you here.  In the sidebars are virtual baskets of books we are enjoying right now in our home.  I hope you'll read along with us!
