Sharing is caring!

Take a look at my book list for our Adventures in Great Britain Unit Study, releasing this spring! Read more to grab a 35% off discount code. Did you know that our Adventures in Great Britain have been in the works for over 4 years? I am so excited about the slow release of them this spring! Starting April 7th, to May 12th, you can expect to dive into the next read, paint, cook journey in England, Scotland, and Wales!

Oh, to be in England now that April’s there, And whoever wakes in England sees, some morning, unaware, That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf, While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough in England – now!

– Robert Browning, an English poet and playwright from the 1800s

To help you celebrate, and get a little pumped for it, I wanted to share with you some of the book titles that are found inside the studies, from this very large book stack I took a photo of a few weeks ago and shared on my Instagram feed here. Keep reading to find out how you can get 35% off England and Willows Study now! (limited time offer)

Katie in London by James Mayhew (This is my absolute favourite!)

Of course, there is an even longer list when it comes to Scotland, and the official book titles I am sharing with you in the Adventure, so stay tuned. I like to give you options when studying a country, and this next Build Your Masterpiece Class is special, as my family history is from England and Scotland. I do want to mention that you do not need this many books to enjoy our Adventures, because I include a lot of information in the lessons, and in our Additional Learning Resources found by scanning the QR Codes in our curriculum. This book list is mine, and is a special collection to me while I write our curriculum.

With this large book list, I have been able to draw inspiration from, and continue my research to write our Read, Paint, Cook Art Adventure Curriculum for kids 3 to 13, and beyond.

Here is a sneak peak into the look of England Week 1:

I have some really delicious traditional recipes found in these adventures, and I cannot wait to share more about it. This is but a small little part of what is in store for you and your kids in our Art Curriculum, which gains inspiration from poets, artists and nature from Great Britain!

I most certainly cannot wait to release England’s Adventures, a 2 week study on April 7th and our Wind in the Willows Art & Baking Study Guide will be right behind this release, on April 14th.

Here is a sneak peek of that for you now:
