Take a pictorial journey around the world. With beautiful artwork (without the clutter of words), children of all ages will experience a glimpse into Denmark at the time of Hans Christian Andersen. Travel to his birthplace and visit the Skagen shore. Learn about the culture and destinations during Andersen’s lifetime; you’ll also learn interesting information about his stories. The author has provided a brief explanation of each scene at the back of each book which is helpful for understanding what you see in each scene.
Those who follow Mr. Anno on this delightful journey through Denmark will discover a land of sunny dunes, Viking ruins, colorful seaports, Shakespeare's Hamlet and his father's ghost, and fairy tale characters in every scene. For Denmark is the magical land of Hans Christian Andersen, where mermaids fall in love with princes, where emperors parade naked, and where ugly ducklings turn into swans. Tiny Thumbelina, the Steadfast Tin Soldier, and the Nightingale are just a few of the beloved characters depicted here. So taken was Mr. Anno with the power of Andersen's Fairy Tales, that he visited the author's birthplace many times and credited Andersen with a turning point in his artistic career. As a loving homage to one of the world's greatest storytellers, Mitsumasa Anno has created in Anno's Denmark a work of joy, humor, and whimsy. Now available for the first time with Mr. Anno's delightful notes translated from Japanese to English.

Introduce children to the fascinating and diverse world in which we live through delightful children’s books. Modeled after the Charlotte Mason philosophy of notebooking, this study focuses on the 4 R’s: reading, reasoning, relating and recording. Skills are age appropriate and gentle to engage and inspire children in the learning process. Geography, cultures, animals, folk tales and fables, music and art, are all covered, as are nature studies, poetry and recipes. Literature rich, the authors also provide additional literature and video resources to go deeper. Volumes are flexible for one semester (4 lessons/week) or one year (2 lessons/week). Beautifully illustrated with vibrant photographs and gorgeous art reproductions for the art studies. Black and white nature drawings are included and reproducible for individual families. Quality art supplies are recommended. Please note that a Japanese notebook, Tsubame, is recommended and sold by Beautiful Feet, but we currently do not offer it. ~ Deanne
