"Every parent and teacher wants to give his or her children the best education possible. We hope that the education we provide is a joyful adventure, a celebration of life, and preparation for living. But sadly, most education today falls short of this goal. 'For the Children's Sake' is a book about what education can be, based 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. The central ideas have been proven over many years and in almost every kind of educational situation, including ideas that Susan and Ranald Macaulay have implemented in their own family and school experience. 'For the Children's Sake' will benefit parents and teachers in any educational setting--homeschooling, public school, or private school." --Publisher description.

an inspiration on many levels, parenting, educational, and family life. I wish I read this when my oldest was a toddler.
