Record History Chronologically With A Book of Centuries

Charlotte Mason encouraged children to make a timeline notebook that recorded famous people, events, and dates. These books were used across all subjects and were designed to be a keepsake. The purpose of this type of book was to help children picture history chronologically. It is a child’s own reference book of history which is commenced around the age of ten years old and continued throughout their education. It is usually best to allow each child to have their own book. However some families choose to make this a collective exercise and the make a Family Book of Centuries.

A Homeschool Keepsake

“The Book of Centuries, is a great joy to the owner, and even in these busy days it is possible to find some time, however short, to add an illustration from time to time. Children always take a keen delight in their books. There is no need to be an artist in order to have quite an interesting book—neatness and accuracy are essential though. Museums will be clothed with fresh interest to keepers of these books, who will be able to recognise objects which have already become familiar old friends through their Books of Centuries”. Getrude M Bernau—Principal of the PNEU
