  • Literature guides from a Christian perspective in two formats:                                                 
    mini-guides (letter format -- hole punched and ready to put in a 3-ring binder),  study guides (booklet format and letter format)
  • Basic Booklets -- concise information on a specific topic:  i.e., Books for BoysMore Books for Boys , Great Reading for Girls, More Great Reading for GirlsTips for Learning World Languages at Home, Pastimes in Pictures Books, Celebrate Christmas! + more
  • America:  An Integrated Curriculum -- a complete two-year program (except for math)

One of Christian Novel Studies’ main goals is to provide affordable literature- based materials for homeschooling families and Christian schools.  Prices for materials published by CNS have never been raised since the company began publishing in 1996.

Mini-guides (plus reproducible sheets for mini-guides), some study guides (in letter format), and selected titles of Basic Booklets are now available in PDF format and are able to be transmitted as e-mail attachments.

The study guide for Little Pilgrim's Progress, by Helen L. Taylor, has been one of CNS's most popular guides.  It is now available in two formats:  as a study guide in booklet format and in letter format (there is no difference in price or in content).
