WIN a Book that will Enrich Your Mind and Soul - Scholé Everyday

Pin It
Thank you Classical Academic Press for sponsoring this giveaway!

This post wraps up our month of Scholé Everyday!   If you missed the first post which explains what's going on, take a minute to read it.  Remember, these are just going to be short posts with an idea to encourage you in the way of restful learning.

Do you remember at the beginning of the month when I encouraged you to join the great conversation?   Well, did you?  Did you pick a book from your shelf, the library, or amazon? (If so, what did you pick!?)

If you haven't picked a book yet, that's ok!  Today I have some great news.  Next month we will be starting back up with the Classical Mamas Read book club, so you can just read along!  I promise that this book will be inspiring to you.  It will open your eyes to a greater understanding of classical education and put you right into the great conversation!  So what is it?

The Liberal Arts Tradition


The Liberal Arts Tradition is published by Classical Academic Press and authored by Kevin Clark and Ravi Scott Jain.  The best news is that you can enter to win one of three copies at the end of this post!

This book is perfect for anyone who already has a basic understanding of what classical education is and wants to learn more.  The back of the book says it well:

"This book introduces readers to a paradigm for understanding classical education that transcends the familiar three-stage pattern of grammar, logic, and rhetoric.  Instead, this book describes the liberal arts as a central part of a larger and more robust paradigm of classical education..."

So what do you think?  Will you join me in reading The Liberal Arts Tradition?  The book club will start on October 17th, which gives you a few weeks to get the book...if you don't win the giveaway!

Thank you to everyone who joined me in this month of Scholé!  I hope you will continue learning from a state of rest, and reading this book along with me is a great step to help that happen!

Enter using the Raffelbopter below, and let's get to reading!  I can wait to learn along with you and to encourage one another in our classical education journey.

  1. I went to a liberal arts college and I loved every minute of my education! I try to share that learning tradition with my children every day.

  2. Would love to learn more as I was a public school educated kid and never received a true liberal arts education.

  7. We are only beginning homeschooling but I have been so excited about everything I'm reading about classical education! I was homeschooled but with traditional textbooks and am loving this concept!
