Product Description:

Subtitled "What would Thomas Jefferson think of this?" Provides guidelines for selecting books consistent with the principles of America's founding fathers. Richard Maybury, known as "Uncle Eric" in Whatever Happened to Penny Candy and Whatever Happened to Justice, hits the mark again! This book helps home educators and older students make informed choices about which books to select by showing us how to identify the philosophical slant of the author. Cathy Duffy calls it "a perfect follow-up for [the other two books]. More than a 'book guide,' it teaches basic principles of economics and government in bite-size nuggets - with examples." Includes a recommended list of approved authors and three articles that tell the "other side" of American history - the one not generally told in school textbooks. A wonderful resource for homeschoolers or any lover of American history. Though the book contains several reading recommendations for children as young as ten, the bulk of the reading is recommended for the middle-school to high-school level. 127 pgs.

A teacher friend of mine suggested this book, and it cost less at Rainbow Resources than any other site.
