If you are new to the Charlotte Mason method you may be wondering about the terms that are used most often when learning about the CM method:  living books and twaddle.
Living-Texts-and-Twaddle-1
When choosing books for your children to read,  it is important to choose books that are living books free from twaddle. A living book is a book that comes alive to your child, that is written in a conversational tone, from an author that is usually an expert on the subject. A living book does not talk down to your child and is full of beautiful ideas. A book full of twaddle is a book that has poor grammar and is usually dumbed down to the child. 

HERE is a great list that compiles Charlotte Mason’s quotes on living books to help you choose just the right books for your homeschool.
