All literature is chosen from a generally recognized collection of age-appropriate, often award-winning books. Parents are encouraged to research any unfamiliar books to be sure they are appropriate for their learner. 

Here is a synopsis for the two books in this unit:
"The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe" by CS Lewis
"But the moment they were inside they heard the voices in the passage - and then someone fumbling at the door - and then they saw the handle turning. 'Quick!' said Peter, 'there's nowhere else,' and flung open the wardrobe. All four of them bundled inside it and sat there, panting, in the dark."     CS Lewis, "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe"

CS Lewis and his Chronicles of Narnia have delighted both children and adults for more than 70 years. We will follow the adventures of siblings Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy as they stumble into Narnia through the wardrobe and begin a race to save Narnia from the power of the White Witch. Through their adventures, we will examine timeless themes of family, friendship, forgiveness, sacrifice, and courage as well as the beautiful and descriptive language of CS Lewis.

 "Encyclopedia Brown and His Best Cases Ever" by Donald J. Sobol 
 "Leroy Brown, aka Encyclopedia Brown, is his neighborhood’s ten-year-old star detective. With an uncanny knack for trivia, he solves mysteries for the neighborhood kids through his own detective agency. But his dad also happens to be the chief of the police department, and every night around the dinner table, Encyclopedia helps him solve his most baffling crimes. With ten confounding mysteries in each book, not only does Encyclopedia have a chance to solve them, but the reader is given all the clues as well. Interactive and chock full of interesting bits of information—it’s classic Encyclopedia Brown!"  (publisher summary)
