Review - History for Little Pilgrims

The following is a homeschool review of "History for Little Pilgrims," published by Christian Liberty Press:

This is a very cute softcover book with 122 pages.  It is suggested for 1st grade students.  The cover illustration is so sweet and I love the artist, Vic Lockman.

This is designed to be a history book to include many Bible stories and also some geography, history of America, and the Church.

Each chapter has easy to understand text which is read by the teacher (or parent). There are pictures, maps, and cartoon- type illustrations.  Most of the illustrations by Vic Lockman are adorable. There are a few that were slightly scary to me, though, and I just wanted to mention that.  There were also a few passages that I would not read to children because they were sad and troubling (such as mention of martyrs).

At the end of each chapter is a section which includes vocabulary words, an activity, and a review where the student needs to write missing words.

Additional Resources

There is a teacher's manual that goes with this.  It is 68 stapled pages and includes lesson plans, questions to ask the student, and definitions of vocabulary words from the lessons.

There is a coloring book which includes larger pictures taken from the workbook.  It is 38 pages.

This post is the fourteenth in a series of reviews I am doing using Christian Liberty Press curriculum.  I hope to do 2 reviews each month as I work with my grandson for Kindergarten. To start with the first post, please see the introduction:
