I hope you all had a great extended weekend. We are shipping out last minute orders and have enjoyed talking with those of you who have called in with curriculum questions. Most of you have probably already started school and are hopefully enjoying all those wonderful new books you ordered and checked out from the library.
This time of year always makes me want to pull out a big stack of books and start reading. For those of you who are looking to fill your library with classics and the stories of great men and women, I would recommend taking a look at the Landmark Series. Originally published between 1950 and 1980, this series provided a historical education to generations of children. Even as a youngster, I knew that if I picked up a "Landmark book" at the library or book store there would be no argument with my parents and I would enjoy it and learn something.
Many of you probably are familiar with these titles and pick them up at used book sales whenever you can. Now, it's a bit easier to get your hands on the books because they're being reprinted. There are currently 26 available and we have them at a special price!
Isn't that a beautiful collection?
The collection features some of the most interesting people and events in history and if you have a voracious reader who needs a constant stream of material, this is for you. These titles are also excellent for more reluctant readers as they're all very well written and engaging. Each author treats his or her subject in full color and displays history in all its true drama! Series authors include Ralph Moody, Armstrong Sperry, Sterling North, and more! The reprints include original Landmark titles as well as those written in the same tradition after the series stopped printing.
