I have a huge weakness for old children’s books (and have a large collection), especial old nature stories. As I have already confessed when I was younger I thought science and nature was boring (shock). But I think it is because I am not a fact girland a lot of science books are just facts. When I found through Charlotte Mason about living literature and books about nature set in story-form, I was quite excited. We have found this is a much more engaging way to learn about the world around us and then that sparked an interest in science. With that interest sparked we have then turned to learning more. I am big lover of "Instructor Literature" series booklets and was very excited to find these online. These are small booklets, so easy to print up. They are PDF files. I think it is pretty special to be able to have these booklets. They are hard to find and then pretty expensive. These are geared to younger childern but I enjoy them.
