Product Description:

This is a cute story about a boy named Johnny and the problems his pet bear causes. At first, Johnny is determined to hunt down a bear so he can hang the skin on his barn like all his neighbors, but things change when he befriends the small cub he finds. Unfortunately, the bear grows very quickly and begins to take food from the other animals, ruining crops, and even disturbing the neighbors. Johnny tries to get the bear to return to the forest, but it just keeps coming back to Johnny. It looks like he might have to shoot a bear after all! The story is told with a few sentences on every other page and illustrated with black and white drawings. ~ Rachel S.

Category Description for STUDY GUIDES & BOOKS:

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.


Category Description for First Grade:

By Veritas Press, these comprehension guides are for beginning readers. Each guide covers fourteen favorite children's books, like Madeline, Miss Nelson is Missing, A New Coat for Anna, Amelia Bedelia, Caps for Sale, Billy and Blaze, Frog and Toad, and more. It is recommended to spend at least three or four days on each book, with the child reading it to you at least twice and completing the comprehension activities. After a "to the teacher" page, the rest of the book is simply packed with the activity worksheets. These include comprehension questions, comprehension activities, art activities, and handwriting exercises. There are around 5-10 activities for each book covered. Each activity centers on material from the book to help children retain what they've read. The books are arranged in order of difficulty, but you can work through them in order you want. The books are 148 and 170 pgs respectively. Reproducible. An additional volume in this series covers 8 more books for youngsters: Danny and the Dinosaur, Mouse Soup>, My Father's Dragon, Now We are Six, Encyclopedia Brown: Boy Detective, Hundred Dresses, Owls in the Family, and Sarah Plain and Tall. The format is similar to the other two volumes, though the length of each activity section ranges from 3 to 16 pages. - Melissa




Category Description for Beginning Literature 2:

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




Category Description for Logos Reading and Comprehension Series:

If given a choice, most young readers will choose a book over a "reader" style collection of stories. Why? The stories are interesting, the illustrations engaging, and they seem more "manageable". Okay, so why not teach reading comprehension and beginning literature skills using wonderful children's books? Maybe because you don't want to invest in study guides for each book. Or maybe because you think there needs to be just a little more organized coverage of skills than you might come up with on your own. Or, maybe you just haven't found the right resource. Well, Logos Press has answered all these "maybes" by creating worksheets to go along with some great children's literature. These reproducible worksheets are compiled into spiral bound books and incorporate both the answers and notes for the teacher. Children have seven kinds of questions to answer: matching, multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, drawing a picture, listing, vocabulary definitions, and essay-type. Beginning Literature 1 and 2 includes worksheets for each book plus a sample reading comprehension worksheet that functions as a book report form identifying and describing main characters as well as listing the book's happenings at the beginning, middle, and end. These worksheets provide an excellent introduction to literature studies and reading comprehension by encouraging both thinking about the reading selection and expressing those thoughts in a cohesive manner. A grading label (for reading, English, and spelling) is included on each worksheet. The teacher's instructions include guidelines for grading, and a complete answer key is included.
