If you don't need notes or a schedule, but are just looking for some excellent supplemental reading, this book collection is for you! All of them are worth the read, but you will especially enjoy the Medieval and Renaissance books if you're going through the third year of a four-year, classical history sequence. The Minstrel in the Tower, Tales of Robin Hood, The Adventures of Lancelot the Great, and The Door in the Wall all take place in the Middle Ages. They're all wonderful reads.
As for the rest, Red Sails to Capri is an all-time customer favorite, with its brilliant triumph of a search for beauty, adventure, and philosophy. Your children will join the next generation of delighted readers as they follow the adventures of a cricket, a cat, and a mouse in New York's Grand Central Station in The Cricket in Times Square. You'll be firmly rooted at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna as an unlikely boy studies dressage (a type of horse riding) in the moving book The White Stallion of Lipizza follows. Learn about the world of book publishing in The School Story, and dive deep into the creative genius that came up with the alternative history book The Twenty-One Balloons, the story of a retired teacher who almost dies in the volcanic explosion on Krakatoa. Marvelous, entertaining, and endearing books, all.
