Yesterday’s Classics

This article is in collaboration with Yesterday’s Classics.

Every so often, a vendor comes along to the TOS Homeschool Crew that practically everyone is interested in.  Such is the case with today’s review for Yesterday’s Classics and their eBook package of 225 titles.  With that many books available, there really was something for everyone.

Yesterday’s Classics has been publishing classic children’s literature for quite some time now, and they still offer all those wonderful paperback editions of old books, updated to have formatting and fonts in formats that are more what we are used to today.

But they also have eBook collections available, in either Kindle or EPub formats.  You can purchase individual titles for $2-5 each.  Or you can get the gigantic collection of 225 books.  

This collection includes a huge variety of books.  Such as:

  • World History (with titles like Thirty More Famous Stories Retold by James Baldwin, or The Awakening of Europe by M. B. Synge)
