Ancient Greek Studies for Middle Elementary
Two new vintage ebooks my son is beginning tomorrow:
The Story of the Greek People By Eva March Tappan, 1909.
The Heroes, or, Greek Fairy Tales for my Children, by Charles Kingsley, 1914.
Both public domain ebooks are free to read and download at Google Books. We load our free ebooks onto a flash drive and then read them on a laptop.
I even got my three year old daughter to read a book online with me today. We read My Book House: In the Nursery by Olive Beaupré Millera, 1920 which has cute illustrations.
Hints and helps:
In order to print or save pictures to your computer, you'll need to switch to the HTML version at the site. Look to the bottom right sidebar. Make sure you right click on the image of the page, or you'll get the entire web page.
I had trouble downloading these books with dial-up, so I use a free download manager which works very well, even with dropped connections.
If you need to return to a main page, click on "review book", and then "about book".
