The new Month 4 books are now in the store:
Imaginative Series includes stories of Greek and Roman mythology, Aesop fables as told by popular folklorist, Joseph Jacobs and legends from Italy as told by Amy Steedman. I don't differentiate between Greek and Roman--that can be a fun activity for you and your kids to determine if the Greek or Roman mythological name was used.
My World Story Book continues to share stories of lives of familiar as well as lesser known men and women--all with the purpose of inspiring worthy attributes in your own lives. Just like Plutarch.
Epic and Legendary Heroes: I packed a lot in this book. You will find retellings of The Iliad, The Odyssey and The Aenied by master storyteller, Alfred Church, all written with young listeners in mind. Also, there is a retelling by Mary MacGregor of Charles Kingsley's The Heroes, introducing your young children to Perseus, Jason and Theseus. Mary's style is very similar to H.E. Marshall, who I know many of you are familiar with.
Great Lives rotation revision includes Plutarch's Lives as retold by F.J. Gould as well as a few other stories of great Italians and other Month 4 topics.
As per usual, these books are NOT designed to be read cover to cover in a single sitting. Rather, there is much to layer in over the years. Lots of opportunity to revisit and review.
