Publisher Description:

Using this guide, your 4th grader will have the opportunity to "hide out" with Claudia and Jamie in the museum. The guide includes vocabulary lessons, questions for each chapter (solutions included in the back), and puzzles that bring the book to life. A special added feature to this guide is the "Name that Artist Game" which uses small color reproductions of the fine art of five famous artists to integrate this book with art appreciation.

Category Description for Veritas Comprehension Guides and Books:

In the classical education model, a grammar student should be able to show reading comprehension on a literal and inferential level, demonstrate an increasing vocabulary, and identify various styles of literature as well as basic biblical values. These literature guides from Veritas Press are carefully constructed to train students in those skills. Encouraging oral reading and requiring questions to be answered in complete sentences, these worktexts are attractively illustrated (black & white) and easy to use with complete answer keys included (worksheets are reproducible for family use only). There are some basic similarities among the various titles. For instance, all have who/what/where/why/when questions for the student to answer. However, there’s considerable variety as well. Alice in Wonderland, a third grade guide, includes recipes, several cut and paste projects, memory work, and some writing assignments (adding silly stanzas to a song). The fourth grade guide for The Story of Rolf and the Viking Bow includes (among others) vocabulary exercises, drawing assignments, a relationship web, a cause & effect worksheet, and several writing assignments (paragraphs, cinquain, and limerick). Author information and a short story writing assignment are included in Where the Red Fern Grows, a fifth grade guide.

As is typical with classical education material, the assigned grade levels often seem challenging. Don’t let that discourage you from using an otherwise excellent resource – simply adjust the grade level to suit your student (guides are unlabeled). ~ Janice

Please note that a brief synopsis of many of the books included here are provided in our Library Builders section. Study guides for the same book are often available from several publishers, so we found it more efficient to give a description of the book only once.

I chose this resource as a complimentary guide to the classic children's book by the same name as an Xmas gift for my nieces. They love to read and love art and this was a favorite book of mine in my middle school years.
