This is an incomplete collection of Tappan’s work. She had a way of bringing history to life in her books. Perhaps it was her many years teaching and her in depth knowledge of literature that helped her achieve success.
The first part of this list was contributed by my friend, Allison. I will update as I find more titles.
In 1823, Charlotte Mary Yonge was born at Otterbourne in Hampshire, England. Her charitable parents built the first Sunday School on the grounds of Otterbourne and gave her a religious education. She began to teach at the age of seven and continued in her parents footsteps in educating the poor. Her first writings were for Sunday School children. She continued her writing and teaching into adulthood; her writing as prolific as it was loved. Still loved today, here are some of the works she wrote for children.
Thanks go to Allison for gathering these books. My friend feeds my obsession with 19th and early 20th century books. You can find more on my Facebook group, and learn how you can Build Your Own Homeschool Curriculum for FREE.

This is a list of our favorites 19th century ebooks for US History. I will update as we find more.
Albert Blaisdell is so much fun. My daughter is learning a lot, and frequently laughs and shares Blaisdell’s witty anecdote. They are written narrative style which makes the reading fun and appealing to human interests.
