Gail Ledbetter, author of Timeline of Classics: Historical Context for the Good and Great Books, offers common-sense strategies and resources for simplifying the complicated path toward the literary education that most of us did not receive.

A treasure

Gail, I listened to all available episodes in one day and am now so motivated to teach this method to my last homeschooled child! Your profound wisdom of over 25 years of homeschooling shows that even with our individual children’s strengths and weaknesses, we can train them to learn to love the classics whether spoken aloud or read on their own. Bless you, dear friend. What a truly amazing resource you are to our community of life-long learners!

Thank You!

I just ordered your book A Timeline of Classics! My children are just babies and I plan to homeschool in several years. I am so grateful for the time you spent compiling and sharing this great resource. I can't wait to get started using this reference to help me in collecting books for my children's library!!! I am so encouraged listening to your podcast and to hear that someone who did not grow up with the great books can still provide this type of education for their children!
