In our homeschool, we value quality literature that can be used to enrich our children’s education and learning. Often times finding that quality literature can be difficult and challenging. Yesterday’s Classics has made this task so much easier!
Yesterday’s Classics, in an effort to make quality, classic literature available have reprinted books from the golden age of children’s literature ( 1880-1920). Many of these books have been out of print for decades but are now available once again to be enjoyed!
The books published by Yesterday’s Classics offer so much:
*Text of high literary quality
*Stories that engage the reader
*Cultivation of moral imagination
*Awakens interest in nature
*Stimulates power of observation
Several homeschool curricula use Yesterday’s Classics; Ambleside Online, Heart of Dakota, Living Books Curriculum and Tapestry of Grace. We use one of these curricula and it was a struggle to find the core readings we need since our library had none on the shelves. Due to finances, we and many other families, are not able to buy every book needed or desired. Yesterday’s Classics has a wonderful offer that makes building your personal library an affordable possibility.
*Illustrations – if the original text had color illustrations, they will be in color on the Kindle/epub files.
*Table of Contents for each ebook which makes navigation a breeze!
*22 different genres: world history, science, readers, American history, biographies, Shakespeare, poetry and so much more.

If you are like me and clueless to the ways of e-readers, this resource will be invaluable! Yesterday’s Classics provides a guide to e-reader devices and software. Our family does not own an e-reader such as a Kindle or Nook. I was thrilled to learn that I could download a free e-reader for my computer and still utilize Yesterday’s Classics wonderful resource of these e-books. What a blessing!

I will admit that I am one of those old school book lovers. I love to hold the book in my hand, to hear the sound of a newly opened book, the smell of the pages….. I was not jumping on the e-reader bandwagon.
Then I had the opportunity for this review. While I still treasure holding the book in my hand, I am a homeschooling mom of 7, using a literature based curriculum with children who devour books and a limited budget. Practicality won out on this and I am so pleased with the epub files from Yesterday’s Classics.
A few of the books, my girls had been reading online from www.mainlesson.com (Yesterday’s Classics sister site). However, they hated it. Often they would ask me to print them out but that was not a frugal option! Reading on the computer gave them headaches, it was hard to find their place and hindered their retention. Having these selections in epub files has been such a blessing. We downloaded a free e-reader for our computers and now our children can read easily without eye strain. They can easily make a “bookmark” for where they are to pick up reading. One of my daughters loves being able to make the text bigger and another loves not having to scroll and scroll and scroll as she had to do with the free online version.
It is getting more and more difficult to find literature appropriate for my children and Yesterday’s Classics has been such a help. From my 5 year to my 12 year old, selections are available that are well written, quality literature. My 5 year old will soon begin using the readers to reinforce her phonics lessons.
Not sure if the epub/Kindle files are the right choice for your family? Yesterday’s Classics gives you the opportunity to download The Dutch Twins by Lucy Fitch Perkins for free so you can experience this format before you buy.You just simple download whichever version you need (epub or Kindle) or download both!

Not everyone is going to love the epub/Kindle format. For those who want the paperback copies of these books, Yesterday’s Classics offers free shipping with the purchase of 4 or more books.
Our family has thoroughly enjoyed this affordable resource provided by Yesterday’s Classics. I can’t say enough how thrilled we have been with this product!
