Science & Charlotte Mason

“Where science does not teach a child to wonder and admire,
it has perhaps no educational value...

Books dealing with science... should be of a literary character,
and we should probably be more scientific as a people
if we scrapped all the textbooks...” ~ Charlotte Mason
