NOTE: Adventures in U.S. History is a one-year program designed for 2nd or 3rd graders who are the oldest in the family. 2nd or 3rd graders with older siblings in 4th - 8th grade should skip Adventures and go directly into the Family Learning Cycle, joining in their siblings' current program. This ensures that a parent is only teaching one program for all 2nd - 8th graders.

Testimonials

We started Adventures last month. I have to say I LOVE it! I love that my two-year-old and four-year-old can join in for much of it. I love that it's all laid out for me and that it's real books and not workbooks.

J. F.

We LOVE Adventures!! I don't know who likes it more, the children or me!

D. C.

It is very thorough, yet gentle. It is an amazing introduction to American history for this age group.

Heather

It is hands down the absolute BEST year of homeschool I've ever had! It is wiggle friendly and completely manageable.

Teresa

We have been using My Father's World since kindergarten and have enjoyed each year as much or more than the one before!

In 1707, young Sarah Noble and her father traveled through the wilderness to build a new home for their family. "Keep up your courage, Sarah Noble," her mother had said, but Sarah found that it was not always easy to feel brave inside. The dark woods were full of animals and Indians, too, and Sarah was only eight! The true story of Sarah's journey is inspiring. And as she cares for her father and befriends her Indian neighbors, she learns that to be afraid and to be brave is the greatest courage of all.

That Sunday night, when Sarah heard the rain pattering on the leaves high above her head, she knew that she must find some kind of shelter. It was dark in the forest and everything looked different. Peering around her, she saw something in the distance that looked like a cabin.
Little Sarah wanders away from her family's cabin into the New Hampshire forest, and settlers come from all across the countryside to help her. As the long days pass, the searchers grow desperate, but her father's trust in God holds firm.
"The story is a piece of New Hampshire history," author Elizabeth Yates writes, "and the faith of Sarah's father--his words, 'Trust in the Lord'--has often steadied me."

The adventures of Laura Ingalls and her family continue as they leave their little house on the prairie and travel in their covered wagon to Minnesota. Here they settle in a little house made of sod beside the banks of beautiful Plum Creek. Soon Pa builds a wonderful new little house with real glass windows and a hinged door. Laura and her sister Mary go to school, help with the chores, and fish in the creek. At night everyone listens to the merry music of Pa's fiddle. Misfortunes come in the form of a grasshopper plague and a terrible blizzard, but the pioneer family works hard together to overcome these troubles.

While Laura Ingalls grows up in a little house on the western prairie, Almanzo Wilder is living on a big farm in New York State. Here Almanzo and his brother and sisters help with the summer planting and fall harvest. In winter there is wood to be chopped and great slabs of ice to be cut from the river and stored. Time for fun comes when the jolly tin peddler visits, or best of all, when the fair comes to town.

This is Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved story of how her husband Almanzo grew up as a farmer boy far from the little house where Laura lived.

There were boulders at the top and he picked his way carefully among them. Suddenly he stopped still, gripping a rock and flattening himself against it. Not ten paces from him was a gray wolf, and around her four well-grown cubs were playing--prettily, if anything that spelt such horror could be pretty. His hands felt like ice on the rock.
Wolves, weather, a black lamb, a trusty dog--all are part of Peter's life on a mountain farm. His best friend is Benj, a wise old shepherd, and Benj teaches him to care for the sprightly lamb that becomes his own special pet, his cosset. As Biddy grows into her place as leader of the flock, Peter grows too, learning the skills and joys of the shepherd's life.

Remember when you were a child - when all the world was new, and the smallest object a thing of wonder? Arleta Richardson remembers: the funny wearable wire contraption hidden in the dusty attic, the century-old schoolchild's slate that belonged to Grandma, an ancient trunk filled with quilt pieces - each with its own special story - and the button basket, a miracle of mysteries. And best of all was the remarkable grandmother who made magic of all she touched, bringing the past alive as only a born storyteller could.
Here are those marvelous tales - faithfully recalled for the delight of young and old alike, a touchstone to another day when life was simpler, perhaps richer; when the treasures of family life and love were passed from generation to generation by a child's questions... and the legends that followed enlarged our faith.
