And finally, their appeal endures over wide reaches of time.
Invitation to the Classics is fast becoming a classic in its own right, especially among homeschooling families! Covering 78 literary gems from Homer through Dietrich Bonhoeffer, each author is covered with brief background information.
Much as we might expect from a literature study guide, we are then given insight and understanding of his legacy to literature. Photographs, illustrations, and quotes from major works are provided to help the reader make the connection to the author.
Did you know, that not all books that are considered classics necessarily teach wholesome values or exclude topics you wouldn’t want to be introduced in your home?
Invitation lets you get a good sense of what a title is about before your student reads it. Or maybe you are have heard of a book, but are not sure of the storyline.
Check out the index and then the article to determine if it interests you before you order it from the library or purchase it. I would recommend this as a must for high school home libraries.
An excellent publisher of literature study guides is Progeny Press. Their in-depth guides cover children's books for grades K-12 from a Christian perspective and they are adding new titles consistantly.
From The Courage of Sarah Noble to Jane Eyre there are many titles from which to choose so that you should be able to find something to interest all your children.
There are Before You Read things to think about and chapter by chapter questions to probe deeper into the storyline and characters.
Many titles are now available on a printable CD-ROM if you prefer to use this format.
I highly recommend this series... it's my favorite!
