The Yellow Book includes 36 weekly lessons divided into easy-to-use daily plans. The lessons include dictation or copying of literature passages from great books your children will love. The Other Kitten (Patricia St. John), The Tale of Jeremy Vole (Stephen Lawhead), Bible Stories to Read, poetry selections and much more! All the language skills are included: reading, spelling (with suggested lists included), grammar, higher order thinking skills, creative writing, and handwriting in an easy-to-use format.

"I just wanted to let you know how much my 8 year old daughter and I are enjoying using LLATL (Learning Language Arts Through Literature). This is our second year home schooling and first year using LLATL. Last year she used a workbook, but was really bored with it. She is a strong reader and loves to read and be read to so this is really working out great for us. Thank you so much for such a great product."
