Wonderful fables and saints tales greet the third grader in this reader designed for the first half of the school year. As with the entire series, each story builds in vocabulary and grammar, one after the other. And, as with all the books, each story is meaningful, interesting, warm, and often humorous. In this third volume the focus shifts from the worlds of the fairy tale to those that teach us how to walk in peace and love throughout our lives.

I love that it begins with:

John Wesley’s Rule

Do all the good you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.

I can’t think of anything else that speaks better to the heart of a child commencing third grade. And the entire volume moves forward from that jewel-like beginning.
