32. In My Youth (Kindle Edition)
by James Baldwin
A decidedly different autobiography, originally published under the pseudonym Robert Dudley, eventually revealed to be James Baldwin. A portrayal of life in rural Indiana in the middle of the 19th century it certainly is, but it is so much more. In the words of Mr. Howland, an editor for the original publisher, 'It is difficult to describe just what there is so remarkable about this book, but it is undeniably wonderful. It is literature. It is a strange combination of autobiography and fiction, and records only the simplest happenings -- the life of people in the Indiana backwoods, the primitive life, the commonplace experiences, the visits between neighbors. To tell about it in this way does not make it sound remarkable, yet it is. The style is simple and clear; there is a quiet humor running through it, and in other places the reading brings tears to the eyes.' Ages 10-12

An outstanding collection of poems that appeal to both boys and girls, compiled by a teacher who believed in the formative power of learning poetry by heart.

They should store up an untold wealth of heroic sentiment; they should acquire the habit of carrying a literary quality in their conversation; they should carry a heart full of the fresh and delightful associations and memories connected with poetry hours to brighten mature years. They should develop their memories while they have memories to develop.' The poems are grouped into six sections (The Budding Moment, The Little Child, The Day's at the Morn, Lad and Lassie, On and On, 'Grow Old Along with Me') to make it easier to locate poems that match a child's maturity.

Mr. Jeremy Fisher lives in a little house among the buttercups on the edge of a pond. His rooms are all quite damp, and there are puddles in the passageways, which many people would find unpleasant, but since Mr. Fisher is a frog, he loves it! One day, seeing a drizzle out his window, he decides to try his luck at a bit of quiet fishing, hoping to catch some minnows to share with his friends. His excursion, however, is…rather more eventful than he’d anticipated. Simple words and heartwarming illustrations take readers into Mr. Fisher’s watery world, and bring them home thoughtful, and richer for the visit. Ages 4-7

363. Our Young Folks' Josephus (Kindle Edition)
by William Shepard
Flavius Josephus was a Roman historian from the first century AD who wrote a number of very important manuscripts that provide much of the historical information that we rely on to this day about the first millennium of human civilization. This book adapts the accounts from two of Josephus's most important documents, translating them into a thoroughly readable narrative suitable for the young student of history. Beginning with the story of Abraham, it blends stories familiar from the Old Testament with stories of historical figures known from other contexts, such as Alexander the Great, offering a sense of how the historical world of the Bible blended together with the history of the Ancient Greeks and Romans. Ages 8-12
