Fitting to speak of loving to learn right before Valentine's Day. And what better way to wrap up a series on the benefits of reading?
Books--at least goods books--are a joy to read. Far more than just providing enjoyment, though, these books teach you things. You can learn history, geography, sociology, philosophy and more through literature. In fact, I believe this is the best way to learn these things.
The stories help you make connections, understand what's happening around you and better articulate your response. More than that, you will enjoy doing so. You won't want to stop. You'll love it too much to quit!
Unlike other learning systems, reading great books will inspire you to learn more, not give up on an educational system. For as much as I enjoyed college, I feel no compulsion to go back to school. I'm done with the classroom setting. I'm sick of homework and tests and grade games. Yet I am still enthralled with learning. Sure, I don't make as much time for reading as I should, but when I find a great book I dive into it. I drink in the knowledge like a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice. I love it.
That is how education should be.
That is precisely how homeschooling with Sonlight is.
Sonlight combines all of the benefits of reading a ton of great literature and couples them with powerful tools that help you draw the most from the experience. I remember begging my mom to keep reading. I remember getting lost in a book. I remember homeschooling with Sonlight and all the wonderful benefits it gave me--as a student. I absolutely love to learn.
But wait, there's more!
As we look forward to a day full of chocolates, flowers and pink candies, there's really nothing more sweet than loving to learn together as a family.
