When I signed up for this book, I thought I would be receiving Little Pilgrims Progress. My children and I have read it together every year since my oldest was 5. It's an amazing read and our copy is pretty worn out.
But instead we received Little Pilgrims Progress Adventure Guide. This time as we read Little Pilgrims Progress, we went through the Adventure Guide, and while the few corresponding verses were helpful, looking up the definitions, answering the questions, and analyzing the literary techniques took the fun out of the story for my 3 children (ages 13, 9 and 5). Usually I just orally define unknown terms to my children, and we discuss as we go.
This would be great for someone teaching a class (as the author does) for English credit, but for our family we prefer casually reading and discussing.

It's hard to belive that Helen Taylor's Little Pilgrim's Progress has been around for 60 years already! But it has, and it's been improved with the addition of an Adventure Guide, written by homeschooling mom Deanna Conrad. Written especially for those in grades 4-6, families with children in other age groups can still benefit from the guide.
It's not just another fill-in-the-blanks workbook. The Little Pilgrim's Progress Adventure Guide provides engaging vocabulary, thought-provoking questions, allegorical concepts, literature elements, biblical applications, and character analysis in various formats. From trusted publisher, Moody Press, you know you can trust the content!
Disclaimer: I received both the book and the guide free from Moody in hopes that I would provide a review. The opinions expressed are my own, though.
