Fiction & Literature

Fairy tales do not give the child his first idea of bogey. What fairy tales give the child is his first clear idea of the possible defeat of bogey. The baby has known the dragon intimately ever since he had an imagination. What the fairy tale provides for him is a St. George to kill the dragon. —G.K. Chesterton, writing the original lines, in Tremendous Trifles, Book XVII: The Red Angel (1909)

Fiction is the doorway through which we can learn more about the world we know, the world we long to know, and sometimes, even the world we fear, making it less frightening.  Whether great fiction is the backbone of your curriculum, your favorite way to spend a few moments of free time, or something someone insisted that you read, we’re confident you will be able to find many titles here to help you along the journey.  Here at Exodus, we want you to be well supplied with books that are enjoyable to read, books that will enrich your mind, and open new worlds to you and your family. Access to good literature is one of the most powerful tools you can give your children!

Overwhelmed? We thought so. The rest of the lists group books by theme. Learn more about literature genres, sort books by time period or the area in which they were written. Look up series overviews, compare classic translations, and more...
