I hope you all enjoyed the 10 Days of Classic Literature series!  I realize that several of you would like to purchase more than one pack, so I added a Classical Literature Combo Pack at a discounted price!

What’s Included?

Each unit study contains educational lessons, activities and a fun lap book that your students will work on as they progress through the book. They also include book reports, vocabulary, critical thinking, story timelines, and comprehension. These studies are geared towards grades Kindergarten-4th, but can probably be adapted for older students as well.

I really designed these units to be a fun addition to reading the classics. I didn’t want them to be too stressful for myself or my kiddos, but instead give them something fun to do along with the stories to help them remember what they’ve learned in a fun hands-on way. The lap books included are wonderful for reviewing subject matter, and a great creative interactive homeschooling tool.

Here is a sample of the lap book created for the Treasure Island unit study.



In this unit students will learn all about pirates, clothing, moral codes, pirate ships and more! They will make their own pirate “booty”, do a character study, learn about parrots, create a secrete treasure map, learn to read a compass, and of course learn some pirate vocabulary!



The units also include forms for predicting story plots, character analysis, identifying the protagonist and antagonist, a story timeline, and a final book report on the novel.


Units included in this pack:

  • Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
  • Black Beauty
  • Charlotte’s Web
  • The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle
  • The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
  • Little House in the Big Woods
  • Mr. Popper’s Penguins
  • Stuart Little
  • Treasure Island
  • Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory


Buy It: Get the whole set for just $26.00!




  1. Someone may have already commented on this but we just found the “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Black Beauty” books in the dollar bins at our local Target….SCORE!! We are looking forward to reading the books and doing your wonderful lapbooks with them 🙂

  2. I have just found your site and I LOVE it. You are putting out amazing products, thanks for all your hard work.

    Now for my question: If I buy the instant download how can I buy the lap books?

    1. Ignore my question… I just asked Mr Google and now I feel like a silly. I wish I had known about these lapbooks sooner, they would have been so useful and now I’m bursting with ideas.

  3. Hi Erica!
    These look amazing and I’m planning to add these to our “12-’13 school year. I was wondering if you would consider doing a unit study for a few other titles. We’re a big fan of the Little House series and I would love a lap book for any of the other titles. Additionally, Trumpet of the Swan is one of my absolute favorites. So, in your spare time (hehe) could you whip up a few more 🙂

  4. Hi. I love your site. I am going to be homeschooling my 5 yo dd starting in the fall for her “Kindergarten” year. I am trying to piece together a curriculum for her and I am lost. Could you offer some advice on where to start. I also have a 8 yo ds, who will be in “3rd” for the upcoming year. I am planning on doing the Path of Explorations curriculum for him; however, it is geared towards the 3 – 5 grade crowd and I don’t want to leave my dd lagging behind but I don’t want to overwhelm her either. I was thinking about these novel studies to do with her but am worried that they will be over her head. Help!!!!!!
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi LeAnne,
      They’d be great for your 8yr old. For your 5 yr old, they could listen while you read and then do the activities, but she wouldn’t be able to read the books herself. You might consider doing it as a family and maybe switching off reading between you and your 8 yr old, then have the girls do the lapbooks after you read each section. I tried to pick books that were for early elementary ages, the only one questionable would be the Treasure Island book, but that one comes in a young readers edition as well if you ended up doing it. That one was Turbo’s pick, he wanted something for boys :o)

      Hope that helps!

  5. I’m not finding “Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory”, but am finding “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”….obviously, it’s the all from the same storyline but just wanted to make sure it would work ok with your set. I’m so excited about these!!!

    1. Tammy, sorry for the confusion. Yes, the book is called “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”. The movie they made is called “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”.
