EARLY CHILDHOOD

RECOMMENDED RESOURCES FOR THE LITTLE YEARS

ALL PERFECTLY LEGAL

I

once saw a cartoon that summed up our government education situation perfectly. A couple of explorers were in a huge cauldron over a fire, and cannibals were dancing around. One explorer was saying to the other, “You know, the way their laws are structured, this is all perfectly legal.” We have gotten to the point where virtually anything can be done to Christian kids in the government school system and, you guessed it, it is all “perfectly legal.” A child can be given contraceptives without parental knowledge, but cannot be given a peanut butter sandwich even with parental knowledge. Your children will be taught that life has no transcendental meaning and that God is irrelevant to what is being taught in the classroom. In short, K–12, a child will be marinated in every form of unbelief.

The Bible is the foundation for all we want our children to know and become, and music is one of God’s best gifts to help them learn His Word. By using real “grown-up” hymnals and psalters, your children will learn how to let the Scriptures dwell in them richly and will be able to enter more fully into the high calling and deep privilege of weekly worship with the saints. Cantus Christi features 440 pages of metrical Psalms and great hymns of the faith. Cantica Sanctorum includes 37 direct-from-Scripture Psalms and other passages set to new music plus a few new hymns.

In the Time of Noah Before the Flood, there was a world dominated by giants, bloodthirsty and merciless. God was grieved. He would judge the world. But He would also save the world. Wilson and Bentley again unite to chronicle the history of Noah’s obedience, from the building of the ark and the taming of the beasts, to the grounding at Ararat and the promise of the rainbow.

The Sword of Abram Get ready to step into a world of shepherds and rebel kings, kidnappings and faithfulness, chariot dust and slime pits, vision and belief—it all comes to life in The Sword of Abram.

Christians find their true family line not through tribes and ethnic blood, but in the bond of faithfulness and shed blood that has united our family for millennia. We too often view Church history as the story of obscure aliens instead of the lives of brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers. In this collection of forty-six brief biographies for children, Hannula sketches the stirring trials and triumphs of many famous and some lesser known figures in our family of faith, including Augustine, Charlemagne, Anselm, Luther, Bunyan, and C.S. Lewis. Through them we can begin to enjoy the old paths and find rest for our souls.

t all began in 1981. In a little town in northern Idaho, a handful of educational pioneers, armed only with faith and an essay by Dorothy Sayers, opened the doors of Logos School in the hopes of providing a classical and Christian education for their children. They sought to raise up young men and women who think clearly and listen carefully, who reason persuasively and articulate precisely, who are capable of evaluating their entire range of experience in the light of the Scriptures, and who do so with eagerness in joyful submission to God. Thirty-six years later, hundreds of classical Christian schools have sprung up across the nation and around the world. But there is still a need. Now, thanks to advances in technology, Logos Online School exists to help parents who have the vision but may not have all the resources to educate their children by these principles. Through live daily classes, we come alongside families to provide instruction in a wide variety of subject areas Logos Online brings decades of experience—the best of homeschool, private school, and Christ-centered classical education—right into your home. We can also provide supplemental instruction to brick-and-mortar schools seeking to round out their curriculum in specific areas. See page 39 for more information.

INTRODUCTORY LOGIC The Fundamentals of Thinking Well, 5th Ed. James B. Nance & Douglas Wilson Studying formal logic can be intimidating without the right help, but knowing how to think logically isn’t just for “experts.” Logic is something we employ every day. It should be your secret weapon. It’s the tool for learning how to use other tools. It’s the bones that give a clenched fist its structure (and knuckles). With this in mind, we have developed Introductory Logic for everyday students, teachers, and parents who’ve never tackled syllogisms or fallacies before, but who know that thinking logically is an essential for daily living.

CANON CLASSICS WORLDVIEW GUIDES

CHRISTIANS AND THE CLASSICS

L

ouise Cowan, in her essay “The Necessity of the Classics,” begins by telling the story of Kagemusha, a film by legendary Japanese director Akira Kurosawa. In simple, short form, it is the story of a man who is about to be put to death for stealing, but his execution is stayed because the soldiers notice that he bears a remarkably close resemblance to their chief. So, he becomes the chief’s understudy— learning his mannerisms, voice, walk, and personality. Cowan also notes that he gradually takes on both the internal and external “dignity” of the leader. When the chief dies, the beggar has become so skilled as an understudy that he is able to keep up the ruse for months. Eventually, of course, the ruler’s death is discovered, and the understudy becomes the beggar once again. Yet, Cowan notes, But a strange thing has happened: this pretender has developed a genuine sense of responsibility that cannot so lightly be dismissed. The burden of leadership, with its peculiar blend of selflessness and pride, has become his own. Despite his low station, he follows along after the troops in battle and stands at the last defending the banner of his defeated people, exposing himself to the enemy’s onslaughts

when all others have fallen…Is this heroic gesture still part of the act? Where does it come from, this apparent greatness of soul that finally requires in a counterfeit role an authentic death?....its realization comes through schooling in a tradition. Such magnanimity, we are shown, requires mimesis—imitation. To remake oneself in the image of something that calls to greatness demands a heroic tradition displaying heroic models.

Truly great literature has a similar effect on us. It gives us models of virtue, wisdom, and goodness to imitate, as well as pictures of evil to avoid. It calls us to true nobility of soul. As Christians, we have the particular blessing of being able to read classic literature with a more complete picture of the truth, goodness, and beauty demonstrated for us in these stories, while at the same time seeing God’s common grace at work even in the stories and lives of pagans. We can see the flaws and perfections of Achilles, Odysseus, Aeneas, Beowulf, Dante, Hamlet, Huck, and more—learning from them both good and bad lessons that drive us to wisdom and virtue in Christ. Scripture records for us the stories of saints and sinners gone before, stories of great triumph (Hebrews 11) and great fall (1st Corinthians 10:1-13). Classic literature works in

similar fashion, teaching us through the struggles, victories, and failures of the characters. As Leland Ryken wrote, “Literature is built on a grand paradox: It is a make-believe world that nonetheless reminds us of real life and clarifies it for us.” In An Experiment in Criticism, C.S. Lewis asks, “What then is the good of—what is even the defence for—occupying our hearts with stories of what never happened and entering vicariously into feelings which we should try to avoid having in our own person? Or of fixing our inner eye earnestly on things that can never exist?” In self-reply, he offers, “The nearest I have yet got to an answer is that we seek an enlargement of our being. We want to be more than ourselves…We want to see with other eyes, to imagine with other imaginations, to feel with other hearts, as well as with our own…We demand windows…In reading great literature I become a thousand men and yet remain myself.” When we enter great stories, we are changed. We become different people. So, let us read deeply, widely, and prayerfully—knowing that our souls can be fed, warned, and shaped through the power of stories.

CHRISTIAN COMMENTARY ON CLASSIC TEXTS

AN ENGLISH EPIC MADE ACCESSIBLE

from Peter Leithart

Edmund Spenser’s The Faerie Queene

Miniatures and Morals

Heroes of the City of Man

Fierce Wars and Faithful Loves

The Elfin Knight

The Christian Novels of Jane Austen

A Christian Guide to Select Ancient Literature

Book I of The Faerie Queene

Book II of The Faerie Queene

Updated & Annotated by Roy Maynard

Updated & Annotated by Toby J. Sumpter

Q-111 | $20.00

Q-115 | $20.00

Despite all of his acknowledged greatness, almost no one reads Spenser any more. Roy Maynard makes Spenser accessible again not by dumbing him down, but by deftly modernizing spelling, explaining obscurities in clever asides, and cuing the reader towards the right response.

This second book of The Faerie Queene follows Sir Guyon, a knight on a quest to avenge the innocent. But throughout Guyon’s adventures, things are not always as they seem, for the wicked witch Acrasia has tricked many—and Acrasia’s offers always seem to be the easy way out.

Not only are Jane Austen’s novels still widely read, they continue to influence modern film and literature. In both their moral content and their focused, highly detailed, “miniaturist” execution, they reveal Austen’s mastery of the art of fiction and her concern for Christian virtues exercised within communities. She entertains, edifies, and challenges men and women readers alike. From theological and literary angles, Leithart analyzes character and theme while summarizing each of Austen’s major works—Pride & Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Emma, and Persuasion. Including helpful review and thought questions for each section, this book is an excellent introduction to Austen for students and for all who desire a richer appreciation of her enduring genius. Q-113 | $16.00

Brightest Heaven of Invention A Christian Guide to Six Shakespeare Plays Shakespeare was a great observer, who was able to see deeply into the patterns of human character. Dare anyone say that these insights are irrelevant to living in the real world? For many in an older generation the Bible and the Collected Shakespeare were the two indispensable books. Leithart’s perceptive walk through these plays is written especially for a high school level course, but older students will benefit as well. The six plays discussed are: Henry V, Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Macbeth, The Taming of the Shrew, and Much Ado About Nothing. I-107 | $21.00

Leithart analyzes the grand classics of ancient literature—The Iliad, The Odyssey, The Aeneid, and others—commenting on each and contrasting their pagan worldview to the biblical worldview. If you fall asleep in your literature classes, this book is like drinking ten cups of coffee. Maybe eleven, depending upon your body weight. For high school students and up. Q-112 | $25.00

Ascent to Love A Guide to Dante’s Divine Comedy As the unsurpassed Christian epic poem, Dante’s Divine Comedy provides not only far more personality and emotional depth than the pagan epics, it opens up all the issues on which Western history turns— truth, beauty, goodness, sin, sanctification, and triumph. In this guide, Peter J. Leithart brings his rich biblical-typological insight to bear in opening up the Comedy for students, high school and up, mainly the sort of kids who keep looking for the jokes in the comedy. After examining the meaning and place of the courtly love tradition leading up to Dante, the heart of the guide walks us carefully through the craft and symbolisms of each progressive stage—Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. Each section contains helpful study questions. Q-106 | $16.00

“In today’s cultural, aesthetic, and educational wars, Spenser is a might ally for the 21st century Christian. Maynard proves himself a worthy mediator between Spenser’s time and ours.” —Gene Edward Veith, Provost & Professor of Literature at Patrick Henry College

“Beyond all doubt, it is best to have made one’s first acquaintance with Spenser in a very large edition of The Faerie Queene, on a wet day, between the ages of twelve and sixteen...To read him is to grow in mental health.” —C.S. Lewis

What I Learned in Narnia

Beowulf

BOOK: FC204 | $15.00

A New Verse Rendering

AUDIOBOOK CD: CD-FC204 | $20.00

Q-118 | $14.00

The lessons of Narnia don’t just belong to the world of fiction and fantasy. We may never meet fawns, talking mice, or marshwiggles in our ordinary lives, but the lessons they teach are the very ones we need to fight the battles we face in our everyday lives.

Douglas Wilson’s versification of this Anglo-Saxon epic is one you need to read if you’re a fan of our culture’s Anglo-Saxon heritage, of superheroes, or of monsters. With two thoughtprovoking essays about the meaning of the poem, this edition is the best option for Christian students.

Douglas Wilson begins this series of meditations on C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia with the observation, “This is not intended to be an introduction to Narnia at all, but is rather more like a conversation between good friends about some other good friends, talking about what a good time we all had and why.” Wilson highlights the practical themes of mature, Christian living that emerge from these classic tales—nobility, confession, complete grace—a joyful contrast to the thinness of modern life. A must for any Narnia fan, young or old.

“I’ve long been waiting for a rendering of Beowulf by someone sensitive to its muscular verse, its palette of irony that ranges from grim understatement to barely suppressed hilarity, its profound humanity and Christian faith. I’m waiting no longer.” —Anthony Esolen, author of Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child

Drawn from decades of experience and classroom testing, Logos Latin 1 will help firstyear elementary Latin students successfully navigate through the building blocks of the language. Filled with activity pages, vocabulary, constellation maps, and some entertaining characters, Logos Latin 1 makes learning Latin fun and interesting.

Filled with all the same tools and activities as the first book, Logos Latin 2 introduces new conjugations, declensions and much more. Written specifically with grammar-stage students in mind, this is the text tried and tested in the fourth grade at Logos School.

As students continue learning the Latin language, Logos Latin 3 helps them solidify what they know; introduces new grammar and vocab; and invites students to begin digging into the language through etymology, word history, and trans­lating Latin versions of Aesop’s Fables.

Logos Latin 4 finishes the grammar stage of Latin. LL4 continues the etymology, history, and fun assignments that have made Logos Latin so easy to use while also introducing some translations that will help students move on to the next stage of Latin learning.

Latin Primer 1 equips elementary students (grades 3 and up) with a solid foundation in classical Latin. Revised and expanded with new and engaging exercises, this text covers the basics: everyday vocabulary, verb and noun endings, and other beginning grammar concepts.

Latin Primer 2 solidifies what the students learned in the first book and moves further into the language. With new vocabulary, more verb and noun endings, adjectives, adverb, and other early grammar essentials, this tool will take students to a new level of understanding this old and intriguing language.

In Latin Primer 3, the language basics explored in Primers 1 and 2 continue, with an increasing emphasis on translation. The text introduces students (grades 5 and up) to Latin’s final noun declensions and verb conjugations, as well as to the perfect tense, indirect objects, simple prepositions, and more, opening up broad frontiers for their understanding and enjoyment of this early language.

LATIN

THE PERFECT SUPPLEMENT FOR ANY LATIN CURRICULUM

ORBIS PICTUS The original Orbis Pictus (1658) was the first illustrated children’s book. Our Orbis Pictus series provides Latin educators with a tool specifically to introduce Latin vocabulary, regardless of their textbook or philosophy of teaching. Orbis Pictus helps students pick up vocabulary in the best ways possible: • Uses macaronic sentences, Latin idioms, and illustrations that get at the essentials of words • Introduces words topically, which aids the memory. • Provides example sentences that introduce each new word in a context specifically meant to help a student learn the word. • Features illustrations that clarify a word’s meaning, help with memorizing, and make lessons more interesting. • Includes a glossary for pronunciation, synonyms, and other useful words The Orbis Pictus series is a great help for students learning to read Roman authors, especially when combined with a grammar-centric text. It can be used as a refreshing supplement for any Latin textbook or completely on its own. It has no prerequisites, and could be useful for even the most advanced students of Latin.

This first volume in the Orbis Pictus series covers almost five hundred words on the natural world. This includes not only vocabulary that appears frequently in Latin literature, but also words that have been adopted as technical terms in various scientific disciplines (especially biology). A student who has mastered the material in The Natural World will have also built up basic English and Latin vocabulary in anatomy, botany, and zoology, and will be much better prepared to read classical Roman literature.

Poetry is more than just coming up with rhymes at a moment’s notice: poetry is a study of the craft of language. The Grammar of Poetry course covers the grammar—the fundamentals—of poetry. Its goal is to teach students to capably interact not just with poems, but with language in any situation. This package

A guide for writers of every sort. The author provides indispensable guidance, showing how to develop the writer’s craft and the kind of life from which good writing comes.

IMITATION IN WRITING PACKAGE

Book 1: Aesop’s Fables

In this English grammar guide, Nancy Wilson surveys the major concepts in English grammar for beginners at the late elementary and junior high level, or even adults seeking a brush-up. Our Mother Tongue dishes up examples and exercises that go beyond the stereotypical, and relies on selections from Scripture and great English literature to teach content, style, and structure. A helpful format highlights key definitions, punctuation issues, important concepts, and the development of the English language.

For all its lofty reputation, poetry is really just the art of noticing, naming, and comparing the stuff of this world. Poetry fosters and nurtures life by finding wonder in the nooks and crannies of ordinary life. Suzanne Rhodes, a longtime poet and teacher, offers The Roar on the Other Side as an introductory guide for students (junior high and up). With clarity and imagination, Rhodes communicates the joy of words to her readers and helps them see how good poetry binds all seemingly contradictory things together.

INSTANT READING GUIDES One of the great things about homeschooling is that our students have time to read, read, and read some more. It’s important to feed this appetite but still keep an eye on what’s being digested. We recommend that students of all ages carefully read one book over the course of two or three weeks using a reading guide to check comprehension as they go. As students slow down and consider what they are reading, you will find opportunities to discuss the story, themes and worldview at every level. The guides also provide another opportunity to hone writing mechanics and practice composition.

BASIC CHRISTIAN LIVING

AUDIO RESOURCES for Busy Parents

A Survey Course on Practical Christianity Douglas Wilson G-108 | $18.00 A survey course covering the fundamentals of the Christian life. The twenty-five chapters of this book can be divided into three broad categories: • basic doctrine (confession of sin, the nature of worship, assurance of salvation, and more), • basic wisdom for living in community (relationships, conversation, the meaning of masculinity and femininity, etc.), and • cultural criticism for beginners (authenticity, the “cool,” and competition and ambition, for starters). Each chapter contains a worksheet of questions from relevant portions of the Bible along with a full answer key. A wonderfully practical book on Christianity for students.

The kids have it so easy, don’t they? It’s their job to read. But you’ve got to put in your nine-to-five, keep the house under control, serve the church and community in various capacities, put three meals on the table every day, and of course manage a homeschool where your sons’ and daughters’ minds and hearts can grow into godly maturity. Keep up the good work, Mom and Dad! And don’t forget to keep feeding your own souls. In addition to the books at the right and on the following pages, we offer many audio resources to help. Listen while you shovel the snow or stir the sauce, commuting or running between soccer practice and ballet lessons, during lunch breaks or on the treadmill.

THE RIOT AND THE DANCE

sonal style—like a conversation between the student and the professor. As a consequence the reader feels more like the author is a real person and they are read-

If you thought biology was the province of secular scientists, think again: The Riot and the Dance is biology like you’ve never seen it before. With over 130 original illustrations and several hundred figures total, this book is first and foremost an approachable and readable explanation of the basics of biology for high school or undergraduate students. But Gordon Wilson doesn’t dumb down the concepts. Using analogies, anecdotes, and simple, personable language to teach key details about the bottom-line themes of biology, Dr. Wilson gives students handles to grasp the wonders of life on all levels. Rather than teaching a pile of disconnected facts about biology, Gordon Wilson gives the reader a foundational knowledge of living things alongside his primary goal, which is to stir up a long-lasting wonder and curiosity about life and a greater desire to praise the Creator.

ing a real book (rather than trying to plow through a dictionary or encyclopedia). All essential biology is presented, and is presented well— but in a more user-friendly context. The author is transparent in his Christian perspective, but remains strongly focused on the biology at hand. His very limited interjection of personal perspectives preserves the book’s professional character but adds a dash of salt.

Swooning Victorian ladies and the 1950s suburban housewives genuinely needed to be liberated. But wave after wave of feminists have shown us that they don’t know what liberation is. They have led us into a very boring dead end. Eve in Exile sets aside the stereotypes on both sized so Christians can focus on real women and answer the fundamental question, What did God make real women for?

verb that means to understand, Noeo Sci-

ence provides an engaging, comprehensive, age-appropriate curriculum for elementary and middle school students to explore creation. Noeo Science, a Logos Press product, helps students perceive and comprehend their world through hands-on activities as well as taking notes, defining, drawing, and recording data. Each course level comes with a comprehensive instructor’s guide consisting primarily of lesson plans. These lesson plans are laid out for each week in chart form for easy reference, listing everything from pages in books to be read to experiments to be completed, optional experiments, and optional websites to explore. Notes at the bottom explain when students need to make notes or drawings for their notebooks. Noeo Science gives you eight years of hands-on instruction which provides an excellent foundation for young students everywhere.

For your family's convenience, students may complete the courses in any order within each level.

GREETINGS FROM NOEO SCIENCE!

W

elcome to the wonderful world of Noeo Science! You will find that this homeschool science curriculum is different from all others. Each year fills children with curiosity and excitement as they build a strong foundational knowledge of science. As a homeschooler myself, my goal in designing this curriculum is to help the children have so much fun that the learning comes naturally for them...and painlessly for you! Noeo Science is variety-filled with a structure that can best be described as a balance between the classical method and the Charlotte Mason approach. We emphasize narration and summarization, vocabulary development, observation, and the scientific method. We do not promote rote memorization or the worksheet and test methodology for the sciences at this stage—we have prioritized hands-on experience. We feel it is important to learn science from a variety of sources, using a variety of teaching techniques. Consequently, our curriculum does not use the traditional single textbook approach to science education. We think variety will encourage more interest in science, particularly with younger students. All of the books are carefully selected to allow children to discover the beauty, complexity, orderliness, and wonder of God’s design. While some written work is expected, many activities are included within the bright, colorful, and well-written books. Living book biographies of many important scientists are included to provide a practical perspective. Internet references for further research are also provided throughout the curriculum.

CURRICULUM DESIGN Just as creation is orderly and well organized, we believe that a good science curriculum

of the curriculum, so feel free to modify these sheets and to tailor your expectations for each child. Your student will be asked to

should also follow an orderly design. Each year of the Noeo Science curriculum focuses on biology, chemistry, or physics. Each of these three foundational sciences is studied independently for an entire year rather than jumping randomly from one subject to another. The study of biology, chemistry, and physics is then repeated at a higher level and in more detail upon the completion of each three-year course of study. Subjects that overlap multiple science disciplines (such as geology, weather, and astronomy) are included at logical points within the three major science studies. Our curriculum is designed on a four-dayper-week schedule. If you would prefer to do science twice weekly, then simply complete the first two days of scheduled readings and assignments on your first day, and the last two days of reading and assignments on your second day. Alternatively, you may wish to do all of the reading on the first day and the assignments and experiments on the second day. The key is to understand what works best for you and your children and to adjust the schedule as necessary. Our Instructor’s Guides—one for each year in each discipline—provide a logical, focused progression through the books and experiments. Multiple sources of information are used to teach each science topic, but you won’t need to spend your time searching for books or cross-checking indexes to make the curriculum flow. That work has been done for you!

describe, sketch, or summarize what they learn from the reading assignments, or to complete a lab sheet for their experiments. This method will encourage concentration and attention to detail. In addition, the lab sheets are designed to help your student to apply the scientific method in all of their experiments.

LAB NOTEBOOKS We provide reproducible sheets for creating science and lab notebooks for use in Noeo Science. The notebooks are an integral part

SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS Science is not a spectator sport! The best way for your child to learn and truly comprehend science is by doing hands-on experiments and activities. We understand that finding high quality yet simple experiments is probably the most difficult part of science for most homeschool families We are pleased to say that the experiments in our curriculum will provide a strong science foundation without complicating your life (honest!). Many of our experiments are provided through a unique partnership with The Young Scientists Club. These experiment kits come complete with all of the items that are normally difficult to find, such as an affordable microscope, prepared slides, chemical reactions, magnets, and much more. The kits have won multiple awards for their high quality in recent years. We think you will be pleasantly surprised as your child progresses through these well-organized, fully-explained experiment kits while actually having fun learning science.
