My guest this week is Rea Berg who founded Beautiful Feet Books in 1984 to provide quality literature to the homeschooling market.
Rea holds a bachelor of arts degree in English from Simmons College and in 2006 earned a master’s degree in children’s literature at the Center for the Study of Children’s Literature in Boston, where she was named a Virginia Haviland Scholar.
Rea and her husband Russell have been part of the homeschooling community for twenty-five years particularly in the Charlotte Mason and Classical Approach. She speaks around the country on the joy of discovering history through literature and has written numerous guides on this topic, which have garnered acclaim in the home education community.
Through Beautiful Feet Books she and Russell have brought back into print many classic works of children’s literature. Rea is a regular contributor to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine with articles focusing on Literature Based History studies, Charlotte Mason Education, and Children’s Literature.
She also enjoys organic gardening, travel to historic sites (especially Paris!), dance and yoga. One of her favorite pastimes is discovering classic children’s books in old bookshops.
Join us for a cup of tea and chat about the power of literature both in our lives and the lives of our children this Friday at 12 noon central.
