Literature for Grades 4 through 6

-Plutarch's Lives (1 per term)
-Kipling's The Jungle Book
-Shakespeare (one play per term) Plays listed include Henry VIII, The Tempest, Julius Caesar...
-The Pilgrim's Progress* (The publisher listed is Partridge. I found a copy published by Partridge in 1888, and it has illustrations by Frederick Barnard and the Dalziel Brothers. There is a copy available on Amazon listed as The Pilgrim's Progress: Both Parts and with the Origin Illustrations. The description says that the illustrations in this book are by Barnard and were engraved by the Dalziel Brothers.)  *For lots of resources to be used with The Pilgrim's Progress, visit Ambleside Online's website.
-The British Empire
-Northern Europe

-Kingsley's Water Babies (6.9 grade level, 1070 lexile, now HIGHLY controversial and not included on Ambleside's booklists)

These are SOME of the books listed on the original curriculum outlines for Charlotte Mason schools.

I am typing this post on my phone, since my laptop keyboard has decided not to cooperate. I will hopefully be able to add links tomorrow.
