Reading Comprehension: The Education of Little Tree


‘Gramma said when you come on something good, first thing to do is share it with whoever you can find; that way, the good spreads out where no telling it will go. Which is right.’

Little Tree narrates his own story, the tale of a unique upbringing in the near-wilderness in the 1930’s with his Cherokee grandparents as loving teachers.

‘The Education of Little Tree’ by Forrest Carter is a book that many readers turn to again and again. It is suitable for students age 11 and up who are ready to read about a time and lifestyle that differ from their own, and are able to take an interest in larger, challenging themes of life (the passage of time, spiritual beliefs, the natural world, money and government affairs, history, etc.)

This eBook contains reading comprehension sheets to go with the novel. (Still protected by copyright, the book must be purchased or borrowed separately.) For each chapter there are three short assignments:

1)      to summarize a lesson learned from the chapter

2)     to examine the language used in the chapter

3)     to explain how a suggested ‘main theme’ is relevant to the chapter.

WARNING: Parents should read this book first! Mature themes such as drinking alcochol, the use of swear words, and criticism of religion are addressed in the story.

Canadian Winter Homeschool Materials include both English and French materials (the two official languages of Canada). These materials may be of interest to homeschoolers who are looking for non-religious and non-American content. Our methods are simple and old-fashioned; it is presumed that a parent will help the student to use the material. Canadian spelling is used in general. Many thanks to my homeschooled daughter, Marlene, for her great ideas, and my husband, Pierre, for his support and love!

Forrest Carter was also a former Klansman, not a Cherokee Indian. Major deal breaker for me.

Original electronic
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.
