CCH’s Literature of Western Civilization units utilizes the plan described in Christine Miller’s Literature in the Grammar Stage article, to expose children to the best of the 1000 good books, building their proficieny and literacy year by year. The goal of CCH’s grammar stage literature curriculum is to give children not only exposure to that literature necessary for all children to be truly educated, but to prepare them in reading ability for the more advanced Great Books of Western Civilization that they will encounter in the dialectic and rhetoric stages. Many of the literature selections have also been designed to dovetail seamlessly with CCH’s History of Western Civilization units for the grammar stage as well.

Grammar Stage Literature Teacher’s Resources

Honey for a Child’s Heart
Gladys Hunt

Click to order Honey for a Child’s Heart Subtitled: the imaginative use of books in family life. This is the most important book on this page for parents, homeschooling or not. Mrs. Hunt discusses the topics of the Bequest of Wings, Milk & Honey, What Makes a Good Book, Fantasy and Realism, Poetry, The Pleasure of a Shared Adventure (an important chapter for families), Honey From the Rock, Who Influences Your Children?, and Making Decisions About Books, all from an unashamed Christian perspective. Her graded and annotated bibliography is frosting on the cake. Mrs. Hunt says, “That is what a book does. It introduces us to people and places we wouldn’t ordinarily know. A good book is a magic gateway into a wider world of wonder, beauty, delight, and adventure. Books are experiences that make us grow, that add something to our inner stature. Children and books go together in a special way. I can’t imagine any pleasure greater than bringing to the uncluttered, supple mind of a child the delight of knowing God and the many rich things He has given us to enjoy. This is every parent’s privilege, and books are his keenest tools. Children don’t stumble onto good books by themselves; they must be introduced to the wonder of words put together in such a way that they spin out pure joy and magic.” Parents, in this day and age, don’t stumble onto good books by themselves either, and Honey for a Child’s Heart shows them the way.
