S2E2: What is a Morning Basket?

affiliate disclosure

Curious to know more about a morning basket? In today’s podcast episode I’ll share with you what a morning basket is, what it can look like and an example of what kind of books I have in mine. The idea is very Charlotte Mason in it’s approach, with reading and discussion being the primary point. It is a fantastic way to start your day and helps wake up the mind, inspire, and brings connection. The kinds of books you want to include will largely depend on the ages, interests and attention span of your children as well as the subjects you would normally teach to all of them together. This really isn’t as hard as it looks and it can be as simple as finding books related to your interests or what you are studying, the point is to start your day off with them and to see how it can transform the atmosphere of your home!
