Maple Tree Publications
I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t do well with change. I don’t like the town’s new library because it is so huge and metropolitan and now I am just a number with a large fine and a lot of books that all to often seem to be reshelved before they are properly checked in. I would never be the one to think of fixing or improving something in our home since “it’s doing okay as it is, isn’t it?” I tend to shop at the same grocery store and walk the same aisles. Trying out new recipes stresses me out because, first of all, it’s going to take time to figure out where to get the ingredients and then someone is going to complain because kids do tend to be “plain Jane” eaters.
It’s been a while since my last post since we officially entered “conference season” at the end of March and I have had to spend more time in the “real world”. I wanted to send you all a quick note though, before I head out to Ottawa for this weekend’s RVHEA conference, to let you know a bit of what is going on here Under the Maple Tree.
For more than a decade, Maple Tree has been committed to bringing you spectacular homegrown Canadian homeschool resources. In the past few years though as I have been out at conferences and enjoying many yummy chats with all of you we have often talked about wonderful books that weren’t on our publication list. After a chat about one great resource or another the inevitable question was, “Can I get that from you?” I was pleased to be able to point my friends to where they could seek out some of these yummy resources but have decided to stream line the process for you (and to work harder at paying for our own piano lessons rather than at padding some other retailer’s bottom line).
So, in light of the fact that we love the principles of Charlotte Mason’s Philosophy of Education, we have expanded out product line and now carry many of the essentials of a Charlotte Mason education.
I do plan to send you some more info in the near future on these products but, in short, we can now provide you with:
As well as many Charlotte Mason style Bible and parent resources. We have been slowing adding products to the website so check back there as we continue to make updates but also feel free to email or call for more information. I’d be happy to try to help you find the resource that you are looking for. For now, our product line is fairly simple (though it is a big and exciting change here in our little corner of the world) as we aim to provide at least some essentials of a Charlotte Mason education.
Please stop by our virtual store as you plan to visit your local conference or to order books for you next school year.
And if you are going to be at one of the remaining conferences that I will be at (Ottawa, Hamilton, Barrie, Brantford, or Toronto) please come and say hello! I’d love to chat with you in real life!
Wisdom vs. Knowledge (Some notes on Chapter 5, Home Education: Strengthening Your Child’s Mind to Learn for God)
What are some of your favourite family reads lately? Do you, like me, find it hard to prioritize that yummy reading time when there are so many measurable things that you should do like math lessons, piano practice and copywork?
Looking back, this synopsis seems long… There is just so much packed into each chapter. Yikes! I still have so much to learn. (Don’t you sometimes wonder that you will never really be ready to love and care for and teach your little cherubs until you have graduated them all? Maybe it’s just me.)
Wishing you strenth as you take this crazy job on!
