The books in K are the same. There are 1 or 2 books that the K TM tells you to skip a page because of content.MercyMamma wrote:I think I've read mention about MFW curriculum screening what books they choose and saving some of the more mature topics for when kids are older. I definitely appreciate that!
I'm curious about their guidelines though... for example, I just got another catalog and the books in the catalog are Christian books, but I'm not sure she'll be ready for them. (and we're probably going with MFW anyway... lol) So is this something MFW would screen out and save for later or am I just overprotective and will find this in any curriculum?
In 1st, you get the book Honey for a Child's Heart, which helps you choose age appropriate read alouds.
In Adv, the read alouds begin to have real life stories. There are some scary moments in those books, ie Little House books often have scary "Indians" and weather, Sarah Whitcher, the bear, lost in the woods, lots of native Americans and settlers interacting.
But there isn't any blood, guts, offensive characters or fairy tales prior to ECC. Not to say ECC is filled with those things. The read alouds in ECC do ramp it up a bit with the missionary stories. Nate Saint is the "worst" we've encountered this year. Don't get me wrong we loved reading Nate Saint, but it definitely had a bit of gore. But by the time you get to ECC your oldest should be 3rd grade, around 8yo. In my reality, my 4th grader, 9yo, loved the read alouds this year. My 2nd grader, 7yo, had a heard time following them, and generally went off to play or fell asleep if it was bedtime.
I don't know if this answers your question, but I hope it helps in some way.
