  Lighted Lanterns: A Catholic Language Arts Program Level A - Manuscript Edition -eBook (EPUB*)  This one-of-a-kind program is very gentle, very Catholic and able to be tailored to your own child's needs. Being very busy homeschool moms, we wanted the best of all worlds: Catholic, integrated, little to no preparation, able to be tailored, all in a convenient, tidy, and very attractive workbook. We thought perhaps others might like something that fit that bill as well. Since this is an integrated approach, they naturally cover spelling, gentle grammar, vocabulary, penmanship, oral narrations, creative writing, picture studies, and more.
