A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens (1843) - Literary Classics Novel Workbook


What is the "Literary Classics Workbook Series"?

  • Our "Literary Classics Workbook Series" is unique among ELA: English-Language Arts offerings. 
  • Instead of acquiring a novel and a separate set of assignments to go with the novel, educators are able to offer an "all inclusive" package.
  • Included in the workbook is the complete text (unabridged) of a classic work of fiction.
  • Placed frequently throughout the text are questions ranging from basic recall to critical thinking.  Also included are more writing-intensive essay questions. 
  • Everything a student and teacher/parent needs to read, teach, and learn from a piece of classic literature is included in each workbook.
  • Traditional classroom teachers are able to assign extra reading to advanced students.
  • Homeschoolers are able to assign college-bound reading to their older, more independent children, freeing themselves to work more closely with their younger kids.
  • These literary classics workbooks are very convenient for students on the go, as well as for vacationers.
  • They are popular among homeschoolers, as well as among traditional junior and senior high school students who wish to spend their weekends, holidays, and summers better preparing for college admissions tests.


This workbook features the Victorian holiday classic 1843 English story A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.  This is one of the most popular stories of all time.  Delight in Ebenezer Scrooge's transformation from "Bah-humbug" to "Merry Christmas."  And who can forget Tiny Tim?  "God bless us, every one!"


Why read the classics?                                

  • It's a proven fact that the more one reads, the better one understands the written word and the better one writes.  High school students taking college admissions tests who have read extensively inevitably earn higher scores. ·   
  • The classics offer some of the best examples of the written word.
  • "Cultural capital" - these are the books that are best known to Western civilization, the most discussed, and the most loved.  The plots, themes, characters, etc., from these books are sprinkled throughout life - from references in popular culture, to sophisticated dinner conversation, to college lecture halls, and beyond.

I used this first do an informal assessment of my student's reading comprehension and it turned out to be a great tool. Not only was I able to get a feel for where my students were at, they enjoyed the independent reading activity that was followed up [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
