There are some suggestions other than the encyclopedia for some of the topics.NHMom wrote:This is probably a really dumb question, but what do you use for MFWK if you don't have a set of encyclopedias? Is there a list of alternative books you can use? I would hate to have to go search for books each week.
Honestly, you can pick any book from the library on the topic to introduce your dc to the topic for the week. I typically got a few that we could read through and some that my dc could just look through.
Sometimes I just used the internet. I have AOL and they have a link to World Book. I'm not sure if it is the same that you can buy, but it was sufficient to introduce the topic if we couldn't get to the library.
On the boards here (Kindergarten Unit Ideas) there are some suggestions for some books that worked well for some families.
I hope this helps :).
