Join us as we explore the wonderful works of the beloved author, Thornton W. Burgess.  This literature study will cover The Burgess Animal Book for Children in a fun way.  During the 6th week there will be a fun end-of-class celebration.

This course will be a 6 week live role play adventure class, and the book we will be using is The Burgess Animal Book for Children.  We will have a live class each week, assignments, and of course Minecraft activities to go along with it.  You can see pages of the book and check out the Table of Contents here.
