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

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

situation, including ideas that Susan and Ranald Macaulay have
implemented in their own family and school experience.
A true benefit to parents and teachers in any educational
setting-homeschooling, public school, or private school.
