Christian Novel Studies is a family-run home business that publishes three types of educational materials:

  • 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, study guides, and Basic Booklets (now called Concise Concepts) are now available as digital downloads from the Christian Novel Studies' Store on TeachersPayTeachers.  

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). 

A beautiful new edition of this book is now available. Click on the link for a picture and details:  New Edition
