I love that so many classic (and old school!) books are available online for free.
These are Public Domain books that are no longer copyrighted and are accessible to anyone and everyone by download. The problem is, so often the download versions only really work on Kindle or some screen-based reader. Or, they just don’t print well at all when you try to print them out and have them bound.
This is a problem for me because I don’t love reading books on the iPad and when I print, I’m picky about how it looks. *sigh*
This has motivated me to take the time to make certain downloads more printable.
Last year, I took the time to piece together the Charlotte Mason Geography and Long’s Geography books with original images for free download. It took quite a bit of time but I was so happy with the results and even happier that so many homeschool Moms were thrilled to use them. (It is my most visited post on this blog, I think… ) *Hooray!*
So, I have done the same with Parables from Nature.
Here is a simple, easy to print version of the original language Parables from Nature by Margaret Gatty. It isn’t fancy but it will print nicely and could easily be bound as a book using double sided printing.
We use readings from this book for Parables/Tales/Character Study in our Morning Time.
