We'll be adding 3 new series to our Forgotten Classics Library next week plus a WEH Learning Library. Let me give you a little preview:
The Cousins Series Part 2
In this series, you will get the remaining titles in the Cousins series as well as the Twins Series by Lucy Fitch Perkins and the rest of the Our Little Cousins from Ancient Times.
These are books that are mostly out of print and nice reading copies can be hard to come by. These are selected because they show Well-Educated Heart principles in actions. They inspire and uplift the heart.
If we were able to fit two books in one volume, we did, to save you money. If illustrations were available, we included them. The first selection is a combination book of Understood Betsy and Mother's Carey's Chickens, which Disney's Summer magic was based on. Upcoming volumes include: Pollyanna/Just David, Five Little Peppers, The Lost Prince/Little Lord Fauntleroy (by the author of The Secret Garden), Little Men, the sequel to Little Women, In my Youth--the tender autobiography of James Baldwin, several Gene Porter Stratton books: Laddie, Freckles, Girl of the Limberlost, The Harvester and Keeper of the Bees. and finally The Golden Name Day (fingers crossed). Several of these books will include brief stories of the authors.
World Freedom Series
The third series is another World History Series which we are calling the World Freedom Series. Can you tell I'm anxious to stock your family libraries with living history books? These are some of the most popular history storytellers of their day. They read like a story and will bring history to life for your Junior High and High School kids.
Volume one will be The Story of Liberty by Charles Carleton Coffin. Some of you may have listened to the audio version. Here is your chance to secure a hard copy. In the coming months, we will be releasing several Henrietta Marshall books: Our Island Story, The Story of Scotland, and the History of France and Germany, several Mary MacGregor books: Netherlands, Story of Greece and Rome . Also included will be the popular John Haaren's Famous Men Series: Famous Men of the Greece, Rome, Middle Ages and Modern Times and Helene Guerber's 13 Colonies and Republic books. (Helene Guerber's books about Greece, Rome and the Hebrews are in the original World History Series).
Well-Educated Heart Learning Library
Finally, we will be announcing the Well-Educated Heart Learning Library. Many of you have asked for written versions of my audios. I have compiled, sorted, compressed and organized just about everything I have ever said in presentations, podcasts and conferences. It is contained in 3 volumes. Volume 1 is Philosophy, Volume 2: Methods/Tools (includes the Take 5s) and Volume 3 is Inspiration, all the Great LIves podcasts sorted by the rotation. Krystal is finishing up the massive job of formatting it--last time I checked there were over 1300 pages!! (And that's full 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of paper!) Everything you ever wanted to know...and then some:)
It's meant to be a reference library---something I hope you will be able to refer back to over and over again.
We'll announce again when these are available in the store, but it should be next week.
Now that so many public libraries are closed or not offering interlibrary services, we are working even harder to get quality, living books with which you can build your family libraries. There are more to come...
