#47 on the Big Read List (UK’s top 200).

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. On Christmas Eve, the ghost of his old partner, Jacob Marley, appears to Scrooge to warn him to change his ways. Bound in chains and tormented by his mistakes, Marley tells Scrooge that he will be visited by three Spirits.

These Spirits offer Scrooge a chance to escape the same fate as Marley, but will Scrooge listen to their lesson of redemption and reawaken to the commandment, "Love your neighbor as yourself?"

    We just got our Progeny

    Posted by SARAH G. on 31st Aug 2015

    We just got our Progeny Press books and study guides last week! I love how they are thorough yet do not take my high schoolers hours to do. I like being able to just make photocopies of them so I can use them later on with my younger kids when they enter high school! Thanks for making something that fits right in with our school day!
