    I read Cindy's blog for a lot of years including her 31 Days to Morning Time as it was published so I didn't find anything particularly new in A Handbook to Morning Time It was an easy comfortable read for me with Cindy's straightforward down to earth very simple explanations of the why and what and how she did during Morning Time at her houseWhat I did find though were those all important gentle re minders re focusing re energizing words to stay in for the long haul do what you know stay to the worn paths that Cindy writes so beautifully If there is such a thing as comfort food books for the Homeschool mom this one was my warm blanket and cup of teaEven though education is the training of the affections it is often a future hope pg 63An echo from Mere Motherhood but a sweet reminder that our children are persons and will be nourished on ideas in their and God's own timeAs with most things it is better to do something than to read about doing it pg 72The opposite of my relationship with Pinterest LOLThe first thing we must do is recognize that it is always going to be this way a little chaotic For every idyllic morning there will be five okay mornings and three terrible ones Here is where the plodding comes in Here is where I assure you that plodding pays off I am here to remind you to take the next step pg 94While we're on break it's easy to think of those ideal days and forget the impossible ones Cindy grounds me yet encourages me to keep on keeping onI've believed Cindy about poetry which my public school self was exposed to very little but my children adore It has been and continues to be a staple in our Whatchamacallit Circle Time Morning Time Morning Basket Symposium But I loved the way she said it on page 40In fact when in doubt err on the side of poetryLater she enjoins usOver the years I have come to prioritize the memorizing of Shakespeare over other poetry just because it is rare tofind better meter or meaning When in doubt pick Shakespeare pg 67A Handbook to Morning Time is a short guide to Morning Time that will encourage and warm me while helping me get back on the right track in our homeschool Because it is short meaty and re energizing it is a book I can see myself returning to year after year

    I find all of Cindy's writing and speaking practical but this book was particularly so in a way that ensures I'll have it by my side as I'm planning my morning times for each term I'm grateful for her specific book recommendations candid admissions of imperfection and freuent encouragement to carry on for the long haul My copy of this book is much underlined and dog eared I won't be loaning it out get your own ;

    Well organized in content short and easy to implement this little book makes me sad my youngest will be graduating in three years If like me one hasn't had a lot of time reading Cindy's blog then this book plots out Morning Time in structure and content with plenty of suggested reading selections and hymns to get one started This is a book I will keep and refer to often for the next three years

    This book seems short but it is not lacking in content Rollins lays out a concise organized plan for successful morning times in your home but reassures the readers that things will happen and you won't always get it done and that's okay She shares specific examples and writes in such a conversational tone that it almost feels like she is chatting with you over coffee mentoring you as a seasoned homeschoolerI couldn't put this book down I closed the book and immediately starting thinking about how to implement many of her suggestions and ideas I will return to this book again and again

    This book is excellent as a practical guide to Morning Time Cindy Rollins inspired me to do Morning Time years before we officially started homeschooling through a talk she gave via the Circe Institute Now we are 5 years into our homeschool journey and I’m so grateful that we have done this Even my very ADHD student can sit for almost 45 minutes for our Morning Time we started with 15 minutes and have worked up This book gave me inspiration and practical tips Thanks Cindy

    This is a great handbook for giving you ideas on what to do for your own morning time in homeschool I wouldn't say it's a comprehensive all you'll ever need guide but it's certainly helpful to have specific examples of how an expert handled it I'll take someleave some of her ideas with my homeschooling but overall I recommend it and feel it was well worth the 10 I paid for it

    Great companion to Mere Motherhood

    I recommend this small book as a companion to Mere Motherhood read that one first Then if you want some practical advice on how to implement Morning Time in your home this book will give you tips and lists and examples from Cindy's own morning time This is not a comprehensive guide but rather a description of what the author did in her own home over the years As such it provides inspiration and wise advice from an experienced veteran homeschoolerI have one small piece of advice for mothers of young children reading this book Pay attention to the fact that Cindy's practice of morning time was a process of years It did not spring forth fully formed but grew organically from small beginnings She does mention this but it is easy to lose sight of in the overwhelming volume of what is included in her examples There is nothing wrong with starting with Scripture reading a hymn and a prayer at breakfast with your preschoolers then adding some memory work half a year later and poetry half a year after that It will give you a base of habit that you can build on for years to come
