A Charlotte Mason Moment:

“Let the child lie fallow till he is six, and then, in this matter of memorising, (sic) as in others, attempt only a little, and let the poems the child learns be simple and within the range of his own thought and imagination. At the same time, when there is so much noble poetry within a child’s compass, the pity of it, that he should be allowed to learn twaddle!”

(Home Education by Charlotte M. Mason Vol. 1, p. 253)
