As Classical Conversations is in part a homeschool curriculum company, it makes sense to include books on this Christmas gift ideas list. Here are a few of our favorite books that would make great gifts.
This little board book is the second from our CEO, Robert Bortins. Now, even the littlest students can learn their ABCs as easy as 1-2-3 using the principles of the Classical Conversations Foundations program.
If you enjoy Robert’s My CC ABC’s, you’ll love his first book, Lily Stays for School, named after his daughter. This delightful picture book illustrates what the first day of school is like when it takes place at home.
The next two books on this list would make gorgeous additions to any home library, homeschool room, or coffee table. The first is a stunning, museum-quality art textbook that is truly marvelous to behold. The breathtaking collection of full-color images is a work of art in itself, featuring the master works of some of the world’s greatest artists.
This visually stunning book on cartography will change the way your student views the world—and how they see themselves in it. This coffee-table book illustrates the art and science involved in cartography and the wonder of Creation mapped out before our eyes!
The next several books on this gift ideas list are all from the Classical Conversations Copper Lodge Library, a series of books featuring short stories, classic poems, folk tales, legends, and fables that make for the perfect read alouds. Starting off with Ancient World Echoes, this book captures myths from ancient cultures all over the globe and is sure to delight readers (and listeners!) of all ages.
11. Old World Echoes
Old World Echoes, the sequel to Ancient World Echoes, is a hand-picked collection of classic tales of awe and wonder from around the world. As with all books in the Echoes series, Foundations parents can read aloud one to two stories and one poem from Old World Echoes each week of Foundations. Plus, the readings are designed to take no more than 30 minutes, making this book a quick and easy way to teach your child about old legends and cultures!
12. New World Echoes
Concluding our Echoes trilogy is New World Echoes, which features poems, tall tales, and legends from North America, South America, Australia, New Zealand and Iceland as these nations encountered modern times.
13. Kings of Rome
Kings of Rome begins a separate Copper Lodge Library series on Ancient Rome. Whether reading this during the semester or during Christmas and New Years’ break, these stories will not only entertain, but also provide valuable material for discussion with your student!
14. Senators of Rome
Second in our Rome series is Senators of Rome. Read these stories of Roman history this Christmas by cozying up on the couch with some tea or coffee and watch as Western civilization unfolds!
