We love LLATL. Each lesson is broken into sub-categories, so the kids aren't bored doing the same thing over and over again. It uses passages from great literature. My kids are usually so intrigued by the passages, it makes them want to go and read the book! Yeah for reading!! I would highly recommend this book. I also like how it goes back and covers things that have already been taught. It reinforces what has been taught so the children are actually learning it.

Great concept: using bits of good literature to informally learn English skills--but too much jumping around. Each lesson has a little of this & a little of that. A lot of useless exercises, esp towards the end of each lesson. The readers are very boring. Also, the comp. questions were totally unnecessary, asking such obvious questions. The little cut & paste activities were pointless. We crossed out a lot of the book. I was very disappointed, since this curriculum has such a huge following.

Learning Language Arts through Literature is based on the educational philosophy of Dr. Ruth Beechick and her natural learning method as outlined in her books, "The Three R'," "Language and Thinking for Young Children," and "You Can Teach Your Child Successfully." The curriculum is authored by the late Debbie Strayer, a homeschooling mother, teacher, author and public speaker, and Susan S. Simpson, a teacher, author and publisher.
Learning Language Arts through Literature Red Book is a comprehensive language arts curriculum which teaches phonics, spelling, reading, grammar, composition, research and study skills, and higher order thinking skills, creative expression/games, and penmanship. The author has chosen "real books" which are the back bone for the curriculum's lessons. "Real Book" selections include: "A Tree is Nice," "Little Bear," "The Fire Cat," "Bravest Dog Ever," "Ox-Cart Ma," "Corduroy," "The Little Island," "Billy and Blaze," "Harry the Dirty Dog," and "Abraham Lincoln." Literature passages from "real books" are utilized for copy work and dictation. Learning Language Arts through Literature incorporates word wheels, flip books, cut and paste activities and games into the daily lesson plans. The Red Book contains six readers, "In, Out and About Catfish Pond," Up, Down and Around the Rain Tree," "Forest Fables," "Underwater Friends," "All Around the Farm," and Famous People," illustrated by acclaimed artist, Jack Stockman. The student workbook is consumable.
The instructors guide is comprised of easy to use lesson plans spanning a period of 36 weeks. Each lesson is made up of the following components: New Skills Taught, Materials Needed, Scripted Lesson Plan, Higher Order Thinking Skills, Answers, Examples, Diagrams and References to the student activity book.

I've used the curriculum before, it was okay. Just not a good fit for my children. You need to have quiet time, one on one, with the child in order to do this as it's designed. That just doesn't happen too often in our home.
