Who was Charlotte Mason?

Charlotte Mason was a British educator from the late 1800s/early 1900s. She believed that young children should have a quiet, growing time in the early years where they learn to love nature, develop good habits, and have their minds and imaginations fed by good, true, and beautiful things such as poetry, artwork, music, and living books. Her writings have resurfaced over the years and many homeschool families have thrived using her gentle methods that instill a love of learning into their children.
