Description

Ourselves: Improving Character and Conscience

Ourselves is Volume 4 of Charlotte Mason’s six-volume Home Education series. Using the image of a kingdom — the soul —  that needs to be governed, Miss Mason writes directly to students in this character-training curriculum. The first part of the book is for pre-teens and the second part is for teens. Although it is written as a character curriculum directly addressing students, it is a good study at any age as you will see from the wide range of topics covered. Miss Mason suggests that mothers work through the first book with their young children, but give older students the option of reading it for themselves.
