The Parents' Review

A Monthly Magazine of Home-Training and Culture

Edited by Charlotte Mason.

"Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life."
The Parents' Review

The Parents Review is a magazine that was sent to parents and teachers of Charlotte Mason's schools and correspondence-type homeschools between about 1890 and 1920 (?).

At the end of the year, the magazines would be collected and bound into one beautiful leather-bound volume. Pictured is the Volume for 1900. It measures 6 x 8 1/2 inches and is about 2 inches thick. There are no pictures. Each monthly issue was probably about the size of National Geographic. There are over 800 pages of articles, and, at the back, a section called "Aunt Mai's Budget," which appears to be a separate collection of articles designed for (and sometimes by) children. It may have been included every month at the back of the regular PR monthly issues. Each issue includes some feature articles and regular monthly articles on nature, health, Our Work , Books, letters to the editor and PNEU Notes about news from various districts. Often, an article would run in serial form, which is why some articles have a Part I, Part II, etc.

At the beginning of each volume, instead of a table of contents, is an index of articles in alphabetical order. For articles with a volume and page number, those numbers are based on the volume for that year.
