Progeny Press study guides concentrate on critical thinking, comprehension, literary analysis, and Christian application. Their goal is to teach our children to think clearly, to understand literature, and to rely on scripture for truth and values-- and enjoy themselves while they do it!
These Study Guides deal with literature as works of art and philosophy as they explain and use literary terms; deal with plot construction; dig into character studies; and bring attention to themes and ideas the author has crafted.
The questions are probing, in depth and analytical. This helps develop higher level thinking and allow the students to really come to grip with the text.
Easy-to-use lessons include vocabulary, comprehension, analysis and critical thinking exercises, questions on related Biblical principles, activities
A complete answer key is included

When he is given the task of going over the mountain to his aunts' house to borrow a large pot for his mother, he reassures himself over and over: "There... are... no... bears... on... Hemlock...

When he awakes, he realizes he must now go back over the mountain - in the dark! Despite his refrain of "no... bears...", he meets some, and thinking quickly hides under the large iron pot. When will rescue come? Jonathan learns a hair-raising lesson in being responsible for your own actions.
