  1. How incredible. I believe all children should be introduced to the classics early on. What timeless wonders they are. Thanks so much Ella.

  2. Oh, I’ll be here! I didn’t read any of the classics until I was in my 20’s and did it on my own. I know that I’d have earned to love reading much earlier if I had been introduced to these when I was a child. Do you know if these will be unabridged?

    I can’t wait!!!

  3. I love that you are doing this. I currently work at a school that teaches the classics through a core knowledge approach. It has been fun reading books that I have heard of, but never read. It is so critical that our children be exposed to these timeless treasures. Thanks for doing this!
