The highest priority in the home schooling in the Tolstoy family was introducing the children to systematic reading, and there was a good reason for it: in the 19th century books provided opportunity for the socialization of children and the basis for their moral and spiritual development. The experience of creating a collection of books for children and grandchildren can be clearly seen in Leo Tolstoy’s personal library.
