Our Experience: 

My children love to read.  I was excited to learn about Memoria Press’s literature guides, because I wanted B and C to become more active readers.

B chose to read Lassie Come-Home, and C chose The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.  I had them look over the work for each chapter, read the chapter, and then work on questions.

They both enjoyed reading the books and answering the questions.

Mama’s Thoughts:

  • I’m glad that my children enjoy classical books and that they enjoyed these literature guides. 
  • I really enjoyed these guides.  I liked how they included Comprehension Questions, Discussion Questions, Vocabulary, and an Enrichment section.  I also liked how the guides were consistent between each other.  Consistent products always make it easier for children to work on them throughout the year.
  • The teacher’s guides were awesome.  I liked having the answers at my finger tips if I didn’t know the answer. 
  • C’s handwriting is currently rather large, so she had a hard time writing the answers.  B didn’t have a hard time, but I would still like to see the lines wide ruled instead of college ruled.
  • The Enrichment section was my favorite, because the children were able to do more activities.  I feel that these activities helped B and C learn more about the book they were reading.
  • These literature guides will help them learn to actively read other books.  They will also help them appreciate good classical books. 


B’s Thoughts (boy, age 12, officially in sixth grade):

I thought the Lassie Come-Home Student Study Guide was interesting.  The book was sad, because Lassie can’t live with them anymore. She was sold in the second chapter, which was sad.

I liked how involved the study guide was, with all the questions you had to fill in. I liked how you had to look up words in a dictionary.

I liked the maps in the back of my book.

I would recommend this product to kids my age. 

C’s Thoughts (girl, age 10, officially in fourth grade):

  • I liked the fact that there were maps and recipes.
  • I think this product would be good for kids my age and older and younger.
  • I did The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
  • I think that the lines could be farther apart, because my handwriting didn’t fit.
  • We got The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Lassie Come-Home, and Heidi.
  • I got to draw pictures of Tumnus’s cave and the professor’s house.

Dad’s Thoughts:

Dad was not available.
