The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home by Susan Wise BauerThis book will instruct you, step by step, on how to give your child an academically rigorous, comprehensive education from preschool through high school. Two veteran home educators outline the classical pattern of education—the trivium—which organizes learning around the maturing capacity of the childs mind: the elementary school grammar stage, the middle school logic stage, and the high school rhetoric stage. Using the trivium as your model, youll be able to instruct your child in all levels of reading, writing, history, geography, mathematics, science, foreign languages, rhetoric, logic, art, and music, regardless of your own aptitude in those subjects.
Newly revised and updated, The Well-Trained Mind includes detailed book lists with complete ordering information; up-to-date listings of resources, publications, and Internet links; and useful contacts.
An excellent resource for any family with a desire to incorporate a classical education in their home, whether as a curriculum or as a reference. (Educational Freedom Press)

Their most popular series is The Story of the World by Susan Wise Bauer , a four-volume narrative history of the world, written for elementary-aged students.
