    General comments on Love2Learn Literature from Core 2 to Core 6:

    A Great Books Education
    Love2Learn is a classical curriculum implemented Charlotte Mason’s way. We strongly believe in a “Great Books” education. To this end, the literature prescribed from the early years through high school builds systematically towards this goal.

    Any twaddle and spiritually offensive literature is excluded from our selection. Your family will truly end up with an heirloom library! We trust our Literature programme will help your child develop a love for reading and a love for books.

    Take a journey to forgotten lands
    Over the various Cores your child will get to live through the bombing of London in the Second World War, experience life as a homeless person living under a bridge, sail the seas with Columbus, discover wonderful cures for disease with Jenner, face the dangers of sharing the gospel with a tribe lost in witchcraft and even cross icy landscapes in the race to the pole!

    Award-winning Literature
    Love2Learn offers an extensive selection of award-winning books.

    Live the History
    There is no better way to learn history than to “live it”, and one of the most accessible ways to achieve this in a homeschooling context is through the medium of engaging, humorous, entertaining, suspense-filled historical literature.

    Biographies
    Biographies of Christian heroes, famous people and scientists, old as well as modern classics, Shakespeare, Dickens, and just simply well-written fiction round off the programme.

    Classics
    Exposing our children to the very best writers of our times impacts their command of English at a number of levels. Firstly vocabulary is enriched and expanded. Secondly, they learn to intuit the laws of grammar and spelling very naturally, while they are entertained and engrossed in an “un-put-down able” book. Children are exposed to a number of life situations through good literature. These encourage discussion within the context of a Christian world view.

    General comments on Love2Learn Literature from Core 2 to Core 6:

    A Great Books Education
    Love2Learn is a classical curriculum implemented Charlotte Mason’s way. We strongly believe in a “Great Books” education. To this end, the literature prescribed from the early years through high school builds systematically towards this goal.

    Any twaddle and spiritually offensive literature is excluded from our selection. Your family will truly end up with an heirloom library! We trust our Literature programme will help your child develop a love for reading and a love for books.

    Take a journey to forgotten lands
    Over the various Cores your child will get to live through the bombing of London in the Second World War, experience life as a homeless person living under a bridge, sail the seas with Columbus, discover wonderful cures for disease with Jenner, face the dangers of sharing the gospel with a tribe lost in witchcraft, cross icy landscapes in the race to the pole!

    Award-winning Literature
    Love2Learn offers an extensive selection of award-winning books.

    Live the History
    There is no better way to learn history than to “live it”,
    and one of the most accessible ways to achieve this in a home-schooling context is through the medium of engaging, humorous, entertaining, suspense-filled historical literature.

    Biographies
    Biographies of Christian heroes, famous people and scientists, old as well as modern classics, Shakespeare, Dickens, and just simply well-written fiction round off the programme.

    Classics
    Exposing our children to the very best writers of our times impacts their command of English at a number of levels. Firstly vocabulary is enriched and expanded. Secondly, they learn to intuit the laws of grammar and spelling very naturally, while they are entertained and engrossed in an “un-put-down able” book. Children are exposed to a number of life situations through good literature. These encourage discussion within the context of a Christian world view.
