Robinson Crusoe Reader
True to the original, but rewritten at a lower reading level and printed in larger type. Includes teaching suggestions for art/craft activities at the end of the book.
Simplified for young readers, this timeless classic tells the story of Robin Crusoe as he is shipwrecked and then forced to survive on a deserted island. Julia Cowles does an excellent job of showing how, despite hardship after hardship, God is present in Crusoe's life and continually provides for his needs.
At the back of the book are supplemental arts and crafts activities (correlated to the chapters) to further the reader's understanding and enjoyment of the story.
Teach reading skills using this God-honoring program filled with enriching and interesting reading material. Throughout this series, students read children- and history-oriented stories. Grade K emphasizes phonics instruction (2 books of single-syllable, short vowel, words; 2 books use multi-syllable words, long-vowel sounds). Grade 1 reinforces and applies these phonics skills. Grade 2 assumes students have a good grasp of phonics, so the series then shifts to progressively more challenging vocabulary and reading and emphasizes reading comprehension. Grade 3 stories span a broad history, including ancient and Bible. Grades 4-5 emphasize American history readings. Grade 6 highlights abridged and revised selections from classic authors. Some levels require Teachers' Manuals, student activities, and tests.
