This book, volume 8 in a wonderful series, contains short -- but not babyish -- biographies of the following people from history:
Robert E. Lee
Samuel Langhorne Clemens
Mary McLeod Bethune
Thomas Alva Edison
Saint Francis of Assisi
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Edgar Allen Poe
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Louisa May Alcott
A wonderful addition to a homeschooler's library!
Natalie is about to read about Nathanial Bowditch to accompany her Geometry block... and I can put Poe and Clemens in the Lit Crit block... and I can make a note of Michelangelo for Leah's block next year on the Renaissance... Helen Keller goes with the Philosophy topic Courage... Not a bad find!
Helen's Big World: The Life of Helen Keller
Other teaching topics which could tie in with one of these Biographies? Please let me know and I will add them to the tags for this post.
