TOS Review ~ Yesterday’s Classics

Recently we added 225 new books to our ever growing home library.  Did that scare you? I hope not because I want to tell you about Yesterday’s Classics.  Have you heard of them? If not, head on over and check them out.


As a part of the TOS Homeschool Crew I received the Kindle and EPUB versions of 225 books to review.  Jackpot!!!  These are not twaddle books, but beautiful, rich stories of yesteryear  from the 1880 to 1920’s time period offered in both print and E-book format. Yes, all 225 books!!!

Yesterday's Classics is dedicated to reprinting hundreds upon hundreds of classic stories so that we can pass them on to our children aged 5-18.  They have compiled a 225 title E-book package to make storing and accessing these treasures easier!  Many of the books can be found on the reading lists of curriculum developers such as Ambleside Online, Heart of Dakota, Living Books Curriculum and Tapestry of Grace.

Here is what you get:

  • all 225 classical children’s titles broken down into 22 genres
  • a guide to downloading the files to your E-reader
  • a general guide to E-reader devices
  • a list sorting titles by author, title, genre, and level for easy locating
  • a list of thumbnail pictures and descriptions of each title for better selecting titles for your children

 Check out the entire set by titles here.

So, I know you are probably thinking that this is going to cost an arm and a leg. Well, you’re right, it would if you purchased all paperback editions individually it would cost $2495.75US. YIKES!!!  I don’t know about you but that is not in my budget no matter how much we love books.  I’ve got good news though, you can get the entire 225 collection for $99.95US until May 31st right here.  Act quickly because this set will not disappoint and you don’t want to miss it!

We love this set and highly recommend it, 2 thumbs up!  Below are some of the favorite titles that we have enjoyed so far. There is so much to choose from, that this collection will be enjoyed for many years to come!  Thank you Yesterday’s Classics for compiling this great treasure!!!

You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be—
I had a mother who read to me.
