House of Sixty Fathers
Separated from his family as the Japanese invade China, young Tien Pao must make his way across China to search of his family. Enduring numerous hardships, he is eventually rescued and taken to an American bunker housing 60 soldiers. As luck would have it, it was Tien Pao who had rescued one of their own from behind enemy lines. Can they return the favor and help Tien Pao find his parents and baby sister? A Newbery Honor Book. ~ Anh
Beautiful Feet curriculum takes a multi-level, living book approach to teaching history, geography and world cultures, using easy to use Guides for the teacher and engaging, well-written literature for the student. The Guides provide book lists, chapter readings, discussion and research questions, background information, website links, answer keys, and more. See our website for lists of literature resources to accompany each guide. Most guides provide content for one year of study, with the exception of Geography through Literature and Western Expansion. The latter two are recommended to be completed together for one year of study. Numbers of lessons vary, and are scheduled 1 to 4 days per week. Recommended Timelines are available individually or in a set of two. Timelines are cardstock and include the figures referenced in the study. Students will need to color, cut and assemble the timeline and figures. History and geography come alive with these well done literature guides. See our website for required books for each guide. Some guides and resources contain Christian content while others do not; contact us for additional information.
