This wonderful DVD set with workbook is probably all you need to teach your children high-level skills in literary analysis--regardless of their age By using simple picture books to start almost any level can be accommodated with this series Forget about buying a separate literature guide for each book you studyafter your children learn the skills taught here they will be able to glean much more from the books without them My children enjoyed the variety offered on the days we settled cozily back in our living room chairs to view Adam Andrew's highly engaging teaching This curriculum can also be used to enhance your children's writing skills I saw great improvements in their book reports when I would assign 3 or 4 questions from the Socratic list to write about good questions that spur thinking such as: "What does the protagonist (main character)want? What is keeping him from getting it?" The questions really help spur on reluctant writers who don't know where to start Although a bit pricey compared to other literature/writing programs I would say it was definitely worth it in our case!

My child loves to read. Thought this would help us learn to analyze any literature she chooses to read. With other literature programs, it seems you're limited to THEIR reading lists.

BEST ANSWER: The book I bought that has this cover is a 2004 copyright with a 2nd printing in 2013. It has a different ISBN number than the one used for this product. The ISBN on this product does show it is the 2017 version on Google. Hope this helps.
