It’s December, which means nearly everyone is counting down the days until Christmas. Have you finished Christmas shopping for your favorite homeschool student or mom? How about a grandparent? Are you looking for a unique gift for someone who isn’t involved in Classical Conversations or even homeschooling? Well, here is a Christmas list of a dozen gift ideas you probably haven’t thought of.
The sequel to The Riot and The Dance—Earth, this film explores the God-created life in the oceans, lakes and rivers that cover 70 percent of the earth’s surface. It’s a feast for the eyes!
- My CC ABC’s
This little board book is the second from Classical Conversations’ CEO, Robert Bortins. Now, even the littlest students can learn their ABCs as easy as 1-2-3 using the principles of CC’s Foundations program.
- Lily Stays for School
If you like Robert’s My CC ABC’s, you’ll love his first book. This delightful picture book illustrates what the first day of school is like when it takes place at home.
This classic CC T-shirt is the perfect gift for the science nerds on your shopping list! It’s available in sizes for men, women and youth.
- Leatherette Coaster Set
This classic coaster set in CC blue or black is embossed with Classical Conversations’ logo and will protect your home’s furniture against spills and stains.
This classic journal has 80 lined sheets and a cover in turquoise or navy blue. The compact journal is perfect for use as a diary, date book, Bible study or for jotting down your innermost thoughts.
Classical Conversations is in part a curriculum company, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that most of these gifts are books. These next two books are simply gorgeous and would look at home in any library, on any coffee table. If you don’t already own these books, buy them for yourself, your kids or your grandkids for Christmas.
- Marvelous to Behold
This stunning, museum-quality art textbook truly is marvelous to behold. The breathtaking collection of full-color images is a work of art in itself, featuring the master works of some of the world’s greatest artists.
This visually stunning cartography book will change the way your students view the world—and how they see themselves in it. This coffee-table book illustrates the art and science involved in cartography and the wonder of Creation mapped out before our eyes!
The next four books are all from Classical Conversations’ Copper Lodge Library. They represent classic poems, short stories, folk tales, legends and fables from the early days of America and around the world and should be a part of every well-rounded education.
- Old World Echoes
Old World Echoes is a hand-picked collection of classic tales of awe and wonder from around the world. Foundations parents can read aloud one to two stories and one poem each week for the 24 weeks of Foundations. The readings are designed to take no more than 30 minutes each day.
- New World Echoes
The companion volume to Old World Echoes, this new addition to the Copper Lodge series features poems, tall tales and legends from North America, South America, Australia, New Zealand and Iceland.
- Tanglewood Tales
One of my favorite books from childhood, Tanglewood Tales is colorful introduction to six classic myths, thoughtfully reimagined by Nathaniel Hawthorne for children. These delightful retellings will be a treasure your children will pore over and enjoy for years.
This storybook is packed full of great tales of heroism from U.S. history. These easy-to-read stories encourage readers to explore the lives and virtues of men and women like George Washington, Dolly Madison, Harriet Tubman, and Martin Luther King, Jr.
