You'll get an astonishing poetry collection with over 700 poems, along with a dozen more books that make excellent Read-Alouds or independent readers. Spanning three thousand years of history, from ancient Egypt to London in 1666, you'll travel from the banks of the Nile to the great fire of London that burned a city still reeling from the Plague the year before.

You'll read a marvelous summary of the Trojan War (important for cultural literacy – and a most excellent story); a beautiful story of adoption and pottery set in Korea about 900 years ago; a perennial favorite Sonlight book, The Great and Terrible Quest; and the creative, insightful (and laugh-out-loud funny) story of Leonardo da Vinci's servant.
