I love Usborne Books! They are some of the best educational tools I’ve seen. Their encyclopedias, lift the flap books, and history books are wonderful. I wish these were around when I was teaching elementary and middle school. Beautifully published and easy to reference for young to intermediate readers. This Classical Conversations Cycle 1 Usborne Book List is meant as a supplement to enhance learning and books have been chosen solely on the content being covered in Cycle 1.
If you have a friend who sells Usborne, use this list as a reference for ordering… they will thank you!
