I was blown away at all of the Literature Study Guides that I have found online and they are all FREE! This is a great resource to help create a solid literature curriculum with your kids without having to purchase an extra guide. Most classic literature is available free on the public domain too! You can have them read the books and complete the study guides to go along with each book and save a lot of money!
