This is a complete Christian home school curriculum based on great literature.

From Sonlight's web site:

"We believe that most children respond more positively to great literature than they do to textbooks. Books — quality books — can distill the wisdom of an entire life into the span of a few pages."

"Once a good book grabs your child's attention, you'll find that the educational process becomes relatively painless — because your child will actually want to read"!
