How is the Basic Package used in Preparing Hearts?
Well, we could tell you, but why reinvent the wheel? Carrie and Julie have already done an excellent job of outlining how these books are used in Preparing Hearts’ Introduction, so why don’t we have a look at that together?
(From the Introduction of Preparing Hearts for His Glory):
Daily storytime sessions are linked to the “Reading About History” box of the plans by a similar historical time period. These books provide the historical backdrop for each time period, or a panoramic view of history, while the “Reading About History” readings provide a more factual view. These scheduled read-alouds are highly recommended, unless you need to economize. Complete listings and book descriptions for these books can be
found in the Appendix. These books are sold as a set in the Basic Package,
or sold individually, at www.heartofdakota.com:
• The True Story of Noah’s Ark by Tom Dooley
• Tirzah by Lucille Travis
• Classic Treasury of Aesop’s Fables by Don Daily
