Usborne Illustrated Stories from Dickens {Tuesday's Treasures}

I really love the romance of a Charlotte Mason Education. When I think about Charlotte Mason and the Victorian era the author Charles Dickens spring to mind first. His linguistic style is beautiful to read and grows the imagination by the page. However his books are particularly long for younger students. I recently added this book to my library and Nathaniel and I have been enjoying the illustrated stories.

We have found Usborne Illustrated Stories from Dickens a great introduction to the story a good way to become familiar with the plot and because they are short we have been able to read a story in one sitting.

  1. Thank you for this review.
    I really wanted someone with a Charlotte Mason Education Viewpoint to review these shortened versions of the classics.
    We recently read the Usborne Illustrated stories form Shakespeare and really enjoyed it. So I am happy to hear that this one is also a good one, especially for younger kids.
    Thanks again.
