The author’s goal in writing this series is to “instill a love of great literature in children, expand their ability to read intelligently and deeply, improve their communication abilities, and prepare them for more advanced language arts concepts.” The three key components to this series are literature, grammar and mechanics, and composition.

The Student Workbook explains the lesson’s concept for the child and includes Reading Journal Pages, Dictionary Pages, and Alphabet and Sentence Puzzle Pages. Besides teaching tips and the answers to the questions in the Student Guide, the Teacher’s Guide provides scripted questions for comprehension, and also suggests an Aesop fable for each lesson and ideas for extending the lesson. Can be purchased separately or in a pack with the Teacher Guide and Aesop’s Fables (see Related Items below).
