Brief Intro: (from website)
Yesterday's Classics is your headquarters for the best classic literature for children. We republish classic books for children from the golden age of children's literature, the era from 1880 to 1920. Many of the titles we offer have been out of print for decades and so have been hard to find. Now your children can enjoy these books that delighted generations of children at the beginning of the twentieth century.
All our titles are offered in high-quality paperback editions, with text cast in modern easy-to-read type for today's readers. The illustrations from the original volumes have been included except in those few cases where the quality of the original images was too low to make their reproduction feasible. Except where noted, color illustrations in the original volumes are rendered in black and white in these editions.
How would you like 225 classics for only 44 cents a piece? That's right! Only 44 cents a piece! That is exactly what you get with Yesterday's Classics ebook bundle.
Yes, they do sell the printed version. And most are less than $12, which is already a good deal. But the best deal is with the ebooks. They are available in the Kindle format, which only works on the Kindle. And the EPUB format for everything else. And all for $99.95, with the special link above.
Sure you would like 225 books. But do you have a place to put them? Another bookshelf needing filled? Well if not, the ebooks are just right for you. They take up no space, require no new shelving unit. Just turn on your reading device of choice, and there they are. Perfect!
It is difficult to find children books worth reading. I find it hard to locate living books for history and science that my children will enjoy. Well, my search has just got a whole lot easier. These books are classics. Grand treasures from years gone by. I am loving these delightful reads. Our homeschool will be richer because of them.
The variety ranges from classic novels, such as Pinocchio - our current read-aloud, to some great nature books, such as the Among the Meadow People series.
If you have a way to view ebooks and you have a soft-spot in your heart for living books, then I highly recommend the stories from Yesterday's Classic.
