Product Description:

Although Columbus is famous for it, he was not the first person to discover America. The Americas have been "discovered" again and again throughout history. This story takes you through the history of the Americas from pre-history through the 16th century when Europeans were here to stay. ~ Stephanie

Category Description for Around the World with Picture Books:

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

Category Description for American Story Series:

With a breadth and detail of information that is unusual in children’s books, you get a glimpse at cultural aspects and daily life, education and religion, as well as military and political happenings. In the back of each book is a brief description of key events along with biographical information on important people. Perfect for family read-aloud time (children 5-10) or independent readers (3rd-5th), the well-written text by Betsy Maestro and the lovely illustrations by her husband, Guilio, will become a family favorite.
