Learning from Home with Usborne - 7th Grade

Usborne has added a Learning from Home category.  This new category will be a huge help to families across the nations who are suddenly homeschooling due to the COVID19 health crisis.  They aren't totally homeschooling as their children's public school teachers are still teaching them via online face-to-face meeting apps such as Zoom.  However, the resources offered under the Learning from Home tab will prove helpful to parents who wish to supplement their children's curriculum or if they decide to independently homeschool their children in the future.

The Adventures of Robin Hood

The Adventures of Robin Hood
The Adventures of Robin Hood


England 1194. The poor folk of Nottingham find themselves at the mercy of the heartless money-grabbing Sheriff. But deep in Sherwood Forest, rebellion is brewing. Join brave Robin Hood and his band of daring friends as they pit their wits against the Sheriff and his ruthless ally, Guy of Gisbourne. Swash-buckling thrills come thick and fast in this action-packed graphic adventure story. Graphic novels are more popular than ever thanks to popular culture and the amount of exposure they get. These new Graphic Stories from Usborne provide a great gateway to somewhat difficult stories for relunctant readers to learn to enjoy. Specifically designed to be easily readable, with familiar vocabulary and sentence structures, these stories are entertaining, and the fun, action-packed illustrations are a great way to initiate reluctant readers to the pleasure of sitting down and being swept into an imaginary universe and be taken away by a story.
