Annabel Lee Posted January 24, 2011 Share Posted January 24, 2011 In TWTM grammar stage Reading lists (not history, but the assigned reading that is used for Literature), it says to find "stories and poems by, about or from" at the top of the list. The intent is to expose kids to great books they'll likely encounter later at their current level w/ adaptations or abridgements. I just typed in "John Milton" into my library's online catalog to find nothing but the originals. I don't think Paradise Lost or Areopagitica are 2nd and 4th grade fare, but his name is on the list. Where do I look for children's books on authors, or children's versions of these types of works? I also tried a google search but it came up w/ some pretty broad results.
