The purpose of Reading Comprehension is to gradually train a child to read not only for entertainment, but also for information, understanding, and knowledge. Reading Comprehension will be a favorite subject in your homeschool when it means reading intriguing tales about people from other lands! In Our Friends from Other Lands, your child will read about Carmen, who lives in the Philippines in a “village on sticks”; the Japanese boy-martyr Thomas Kozaki, who knew how to put ﬁrst things ﬁrst; and the people of Oberammergau, Germany who give God a different kind of thank you. The full-color worktext includes stories and country overviews for 27 countries, as well as comprehension questions, an illustrated glossary, and a removable answer key.
Added beneﬁt! Our Friends from Other Lands provides additional historical and cultural background for your student’s study of Tour a Country, even as it develops reading comprehension skills.
Full color! Softcover. 302 pgs. Spiral-bound.
