Great Illustrated Classics Collection for Young Readers

Great Illustrated ClassicsIntroduce your young readers (Grades 3-8) to classic literature by giving them books that have been adapted just for them. The Great Illustrated Classics series from Baronet Books are classics unto themselves, with black-and-white illustrations generously placed throughout. Also included in each edition is a brief profile of the author of the original work.

We used these adaptations as introductory texts for our son, who was an early reader. He enjoyed reading the original works when he got older. If you’re homeschooling multiple ages, using these editions for your younger students while the older students use the originals is a great way to create a “one-room schoolhouse” environment for your children.
