Compatible Books for Classical Conversations Cycle 3 2017-2018 from Usborne

I am so excited about starting Classical Conversations this Fall! I wanted to purchase some of my Usborne books for the school year along with my other resources and could only find outdated lists, so I decided to make my own and share it. I keep a running catalog in my head and think it's comprehensive. The only thing I didn't include was individual learning palettes, but I did put in the sets. If you have any questions about any of the books, just comment or reach out to me on Facebook. It's not necessary to supplement your CC curriculum, but there are so many awesome books for your kids to love and further their interests that I find them hard to resist. I hope it helps you too! It took a while to put it together properly, but I think it was worth it!

Have a wonderful day!!!

(I found the outdated list on Half A Hundred Acre's Blog. She has so many wonderful things for CCers! You should check it out too!)
