We started our literature lesson by reading a story in the student reader. I was so pleased to find so many full-page colorful illustrations throughout the book.

I also loved the addition of word banks throughout the book – with definitions and a pronunciation guide. This is so helpful and I wish more books included this!

At the end of one story, an animal glossary was included – we loved this addition. What a great way to add in even more learning! Also, at the end of each story was a “studying the selection” page which included many questions to ensure the student was listening and understanding the story.

As I looked throughout the workbook, I was thrilled to find so many varied and interesting activities – a definite plus in our book!

While some student books include the answers in the back, I found a separate teacher’s book to be especially helpful for several reasons.

  1. If the student has a question, you don’t have to take the book and flip through the pages to find the answer in the back.
  2. You can read along with your student, answering questions as you go.
  3. The teacher’s book from Mosdos Press Literature includes literary components as well as questions to ask the student during the reading.

If you are looking for a quality literature book that will last for years to come, Mosdos Press Literature is for you! We loved the stories, assignments, and the teacher’s guide provided invaluable resources. My children and I look forward to reading the stories together and working through the assignments and I know that you will love this wholesome literature program just as much as we do.
