Our book studies take a book, divide it out into lessons, and provide all of the go-along material to make a study as cursory or in-depth as you need.
So far we have these free book studies available:
32 weeks worth of lessons covering backyard neighbors, feathered friends, garden life, four-footed comrades, and the earth and its neighbors. Uses the text Our Wonderful World by Emery Lewis Howe.
Using the text Stories of Great Americans for Little Americans by Edward Eggleston, 33 weeks worth of lessons covering famous American explorers, inventors, scientists, and statesmen through short biographies. Wonderful introduction to history for the early reader!
