Updated Edition of The Well-Trained Mind and Audiobook Versions of the Story of the World Series

One of our regular homeschooling patrons just alerted me that a new 10th anniversary edition of The Well-Trained Mind by Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise was published in past May (ISBN: 9780393067088). This 814 page book explains the philosophy behind a Classical curriculum and provides a year-by-year outline on how to implement it. It’s a must-have for most collections. There are quite a number of homeschoolers using a Classical curriculum and even more who use some of it or are influenced by it.

This same patron also told me that there are audiobook versions of Susan Wise Bauer’s 4-volume The Story of the World series, a chronological history that takes readers (or, in this case, listeners) from ancient times through the present. If you can afford them, the books will be well-used in most collections, and I think the audiobooks will be a fine investment as well, something even some non-homeschooling families will find interesting.

For more information about Classical homeschooling, The Well-Trained Mind, and The Story of the World, visit The Well-Trained Mind website and Peace Hill Press.

    We are one of those that uses most of the suggestions in the book.

    We are VERY MUCH enjoying the SOTW series. It is just right for where we are, and my son will enjoy reading the books on his own, too.

    I just found your blog and have read only this post. I’m off to peruse the rest of your site!
