Anno's Spain, when first published in France, was titled In the Footsteps of Don Quixote-fitting for our gentle hero tracing the paths of the chivalrous Don Quixote tilting at windmills. And yet there is so much more here; Anno leads his readers through scenes rich with historical, literary, artistic, and architectural beauty. Here the revolutionary genius of Antoni Gaudi is displayed with Sagrada Familia's tallest tower complete, and masterpieces by Picasso, Dali, and Velazquez are woven subtly into the landscape. The youngest readers will delight to discover Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, and Columbus's Santa Maria anchored just offshore, beckons the curious to take this delightful adventure through Spain's rich and varied landscape.

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
