Men, Microscopes and Living Things



The long-awaited day has arrived. After years of dreaming, we are proud to announce that we have reprinted our first book!

Our library is packed with books most families cannot use because they are old, out of print, expensive, or unavailable. Families interested in using living books for their curriculum especially desire good non-fiction titles. We hope this book is the first of many buried treasures to resurface through the efforts of Living Library Press.

Our fellow podcast host, Nicole Williams of Sabbath Mood Homeschool, knows how to bring current science knowledge together with living books in a creative and thorough way for homeschooling families. Her first study guide is designed to introduce middle school and early high school students to biology through the pages of Men, Microscopes and Living Things by Katherine Shippen. This is an engaging story of the development of biology through the lives of the men who discovered some of the mysteries of God’s creation. This republished book, together with Nicole's Study Guide are a complete lab science course for Biology, and we encourage you to look into her material to accompany your family's study of this book.

It is our pleasure to offer this book to you. The cost is $13.95 (plus $3.50 shipping), and you can find it on our Living Library Press page.

    1. Amber,

      Thanks very much for your cheerleading. How about letting me know which one or two books you would most like to have more available?

    2. I agree with Angela - better in print earlier US History options for Form 1 and 2 would be extremely helpful.

      I did stumble upon a copy of America Begins for a fraction of what it currently costs online at a local used bookstore (and my heart skipped a beat when I saw it!) but that sort thing is certainly not something anyone can count on. I feel like the lack of good US History spines has been one of the most challenging (and expensive) parts of planning for this current school year.

    3. Amber,

      What a find! How wonderful. You are right about everything you have said about American history spines, and that is top priority for us.

      Keep hunting, and thanks for the encouragement to continue to pursue reprints in this subject.

  3. Wonderful! I am hoping you will be able to get "Land of the Free" reprinted - I think I read somewhere that you were working on it :) I was *almost* able to get it through ILL, but then I was told that since it was so expensive, no one would loan it out :(
