  1. DS is taking Life Prep Biology this year too. He is spending more time than expected as well on homework too, but like others mentioned here he enjoys the class and doesn't need reminders to go do the homework, etc. He did transfer from the College Prep Biology because that was much more time intensive - I had to help him understand some chapters of the textbook there (not Science Shepherd).

  4. Just popping in to link a set I read about in another thread: Journeys to Bookland And an anecdote about owning anthologies: my toddler learned number sequence because she kept watching us put them back. I've seen her standing in front of the bookcase, muttering "1, 2, 3.." to herself while pulling out books that were out of sequence and putting them in the right place. So there you have it - anthologies can double as math manipulatives. :tongue_smilie:

Items range from used to like new condition. This is a good opportunity to get a lot of material (at least 25 lbs) at a reasonable price.

Products are from a smoke-free, pet-free home. 1) 4 Learning Wrap-Ups - Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division. $5 pick-up/$10 ppd Good/Acceptable condition - subtraction is missing a board (1s), the plastic boxes for addition and subtraction are yellow.

  8. Kubiac, these are a great find. Thank you for updating the thread with them! As a side question, it's probably cheaper to source these books individually at thrift stores than to buy as a lot, isn't it?
  9. I just browsed Stories of Childhood from OpenLibrary/Internet Archive. http://openlibrary.org/books/OL24220642M/Stories_of_childhood It's similar to the first two books of My Book House - Mother Goose rhymes, famous poems (Stevenson, Rossetti), old tales (Aesop, Grimm), realistic stories (Margery Clark, Kate Seredy) and nature stories (Thornton Burgess). Illustrations are gorgeous - some are full color, others are 4 tone. The front page specifically states that this book was aimed for preschool/elementary age, so I guess the other books in the series (such as Heroes) will target th
  10. Bumping this for you. I only found these images from Amazon and Etsy: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B007EFH0ES?ie=UTF8&index=3&isremote=0 http://www.etsy.com/listing/79912732/vintage-childrens-story-prose-book-1947 OpenLibrary has a couple of books by Esther Bjoland, I'll check if I can borrow one of them. The one you have, People and Great Deeds, is only available in Daisy (not sure how to access). http://openlibrary.org.ezproxy.plsinfo.org:2048/search?q=Esther+Bjoland The titles in the series appear to be: Stories of Childhood People and Great
  11. I think I've found another online source for buying vintage books - shopGoodwill, it has a similar appearance to eBay but doesn't seem to be linked AFAIK. http://www.shopgoodwill.com/search/SearchKey.asp?itemtitle=vintage&showthumbs=on&sortBy=itemEndTime&sortOrder=a&closed=&sellerid=all&srchdesc=&month=&day=&year=&days=0&catID=2 http://www.shopgoodwill.com/listings/listByCat.asp?catID=132
  12. Good eye, Stripe! Here's what Valerie's Living Books says: This was first edited by Eva March Tappan and later by Marjorie Barrows. (The 1953) red and black set was published in both a standard binding and a premium edition. The standard binding is hardback, paper over boards. The premium edition is clothbacked (look closely and you will see the threads) with supplemental color plates.
  13. :hurray: Enjoy! Stripe - I saw this at my library's booksale booth last Saturday, and was reminded of your recommendation of the Provensons as illustrators. I snapped it up - not a hard choice, a hardcover golden book for 50 cents! :001_smile: http://www.amazon.com/Childs-Garden-Verses-Golden-Classics/dp/0307102262 Helena - if you see this, might you be related to this blog author?:tongue_smilie: http://bookaunt.blogspot.co.uk/
  14. This sounds intriguing! Could you give us a few more clues, such as author or year of publication? :)
  15. Bumping.. hope others like helena and Lori D will see this. The author, William Forbush, is listed on this page which covers many of the anthologies we discussed in this thread, and more (!). http://www.mainlesson.com/info/sources.shtml
