There is no graduation from education.” ~Greg Denning

It’s been said that the average person doesn’t read a book after their last graduation, and those who do, usually read entertaining fiction. Our approach to education follows the methods of A Thomas Jefferson Education, and so includes a lot of reading, especially of the classics. Besides reading from scripture, we read one or more of these books everyday.

Below are some of our picks. Have you read these books? What did you like about them? What didn’t you like?

Thomas Jefferson Education Home Companion

Offering specific advice on implementing the Thomas Jefferson Education model, I’m studying this so that I can improve our home education methods.

The Secret Garden

Greg is reading this one to the kids, and they’re all enjoying the stories and the principles it teaches. A great classic!

Hans Christian Andersen

We’ve been study stories by this classic author, including Thumbelina, The Emperors New Clothes, and others.


Stop Stealing Dreams

Not an actual print book, Stop Stealing Dreams is a manifesto written by Seth Godin (author of Linchpin, a must read), about the broken school system, and the need for reformation.

If you care at all about your child’s education, then I highly recommend that you read his manifesto. It’s absolutely free, and available in a variety of digital formats.

The current [school system], which seeks uniformity and minimum standards, is killing our economy, our culture, and us.” Seth Godin


The Power of Intention

A ‘new-age’ type book written by Wayne Dyer, it addresses connecting to ‘Intention’ or the Universal Field – the Power and Source of the universe, which created all and is the source of all.

He explains that if we want to manifest the things we want into our lives, then we need to connect to this Power by living, feeling and being like it is – Love, Kindness, Beauty, Truth, etc.

When we are not these things, then we are disconnected from our Source, and cannot create our world to be the way we want it to be.


Leadership Education: The Phases of Learning

I’ve started reading this one, and it’s incredible!

It’s a companion volume to A Thomas Jefferson Education, and expands upon the different stages of learning: Core, Love of Learning and Scholar.

Highly recommended!
