Description
Instructor's Guide not included. This is part of your History / Bible / Literature A and Grade 1 All-Subjects Package.

Two dozen outstanding books for you to read-aloud to your children. Some, such as Winnie-the-Pooh and My Father's Dragon, are set in completely imaginary worlds, with charming illustrations and light-hearted adventures. You'll also read other fiction set in China, in a lighthouse at Christmas, in an apartment house in Florida, and in the streets of Paris.

You'll enjoy a wonderful variety of fascinating nonfiction as well: two stories set in the ocean off the coast of Florida; a biography of Johnny Appleseed, born in New England in 1774; a book about the nurses who served in Appalachia in the 1920s; the dramatic overthrow of a tyrant in the Alps in 1291; a story set in France during WWII; and one about the unexpected adventures of a very unusual pet.

This collection of books is included in History / Bible / Literature A. If you don't need notes or a schedule, but are just looking for some excellent supplemental reading, this book collection is for you!
