Homeschool 1-on-1: Beautiful Feet Books



We are SUPER excited that we were able to host Josh Berg, the CEO of Beautiful Feet Books as part of our FREE live-virtual Homeschool 1-on-1 Series!!


Josh Berg runs the company his parents Rea and Russ founded in 1984. ⁣Beautiful Feet Books is a curriculum that was brought to homeschoolers by homeschoolers. It focuses on Charlotte Mason-inspired history and literature curricula and offers comprehensive teacher guides. Their motto is: Ignite Wonder. Connect with Your Kids. This is a motto that truly speaks to the core of homeschooling, from those having lived it and who continue to serve the homeschooling community with heart and passion.


You can view our recorded live discussion and Q&A to learn more about the story of Beautiful Feet Books. Discussion topics include details about their products, how they have designed all of their curricula with guides for homeschooling parents, their commitment to homeschooling (Josh was homeschooled himself), and how Beautiful Feet Books have adapted a process to work with homeschooling charter schools. We encourage everyone to take advantage of this awesome opportunity to learn all about Beautiful Feet Books from its founding family.

About Josh Berg


As a homeschool student himself, Josh experienced firsthand the freedom homeschooling provided to cater the educational journey to the student. Having the flexibility to follow his interests he went on to earn his degree in history from CalPoly in San Luis Obispo. He has held a variety of roles within the company but most enjoys seeing parents create a unique culture of education in their homes built upon curiosity and wonder. ⁣

His perfect day would be spent outdoors with his wife and four children followed by cuddling on the couch to read The Wind in the Willows or James Herriot's Treasury for Children. He enjoys playing all sports, watching The Office, and loves talking about the relationship between passion and business.⁣

Josh is driven to transform traditional education methods by empowering parents and children to pursue beauty, joy, and connection.
