Final Book List for Early Modern Times

UPDATED AGAIN

I found a great poetry book for Grammar Stage that I will use for Lesson 16.

UPDATED

I may make a couple of changes, but below is what I have in mind.  I did make one change (Frankenstein is replaced with The Tale of Despereaux).  As you can see, the book selections are largely from the West due to the large volume of works written in the west during this era.  With only weeks left until I have my baby, I can’t promise how many lessons I’ll get done before the upcoming school year.

About Laura

I've been homeschooling since 2005. I have six children (born 2000 - 2012). We are eclectic in our approach with a bit more Well-Trained Mind philosophy over anything else.
