The classic Christmas story of greed, cold-heartedness, and redemption.

Ebenezer Scrooge is content with his life of work and petty self-interestor he would be if he were content with anything.  He is unfriendly to his nephew, cruel to his employee, and verbally abusive to charity collectors.

    In depth study guide a good fit for 8th grade

    Posted by Alicia on 13th Jan 2018

    I purchased this downloadable/interactive study guide for my 8th grade son and daughter. The downloadable guides are great for printing off multiple copies, and a master for me. I like that I can make my purchase on the website, and instantly have my guide! And, no need to store CDs in our school closet. I like that the study has a variety of comprehension questions, multiple choice, and essays. The questions have led to many good discussions about the author, time period, and character development. I have purchased at least half a dozen study guides by Progeny Press, and have continued to be pleased with the selection of literature, price, and choice of either downloadable or CD products.

    Thorough and Customizable

    Posted by Susan Foraker on 11th Jan 2017

    This is the second Progeny Press guide that we've used with our HS kids. The questions are spot-on regarding the books but shine most in the discussions they spark. I actually had purchased a guide from a different company for this book and ended up buying this guide and using it instead. These guides are excellent! We definitely will be purchasing more from this company.
