Some amendments to mostly Page 1 Years 0-4:
  • Y1-6 - Home Geography for Primary GY3/rades by C. C. Long. Text on Project Gutenberg is used in years 1-6.
  • Y1-6 - Also, The Ambleside Geography Books: Elementary Geography Book I for Standard II (1881) https://books.google.com/books?id=YWcDAAAAQAAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=editions:0_lWtKgZ62bkKDU5#v=onepage&q&f=false is used in years 1-6. Based on date it should be PD but I don't know since I can only find it on Google books or AO (and on AO it is copyrighted).
  • Y3 - This Marco Polo book is in the PD. https://archive.org/details/marcopolohistrav00towl
  • Y3 - This book is new to the list but not in the PD. A Drop of Water: A Book of Science and Wonder by Walter Wick
  • Y3 - All these books are no longer on the list: Explore His Earth by Ann Voskamp Science Lab in a Supermarket by Robert Friedhoffer. All About Famous Inventors and Their Inventions by Fletcher Pratt. Exploring Creation With . . . series by Jeannie Fulbright.
  • Y3/Y3.5 - Ways of Wood Folk by William J. Long belongs on Y3.5 instead of Y3.
  • Y3.5 - The Book of Missionary Heroes, by Basil Mathews is PD in the United States. http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/16657
  • Y3.5 - Already recorded just needs added to list.Stories from the Faerie Queene, by Mary Macleod & Howard Pyle's Book of Pirates, by Howard Pyle
  • Y4 - Not PD Gregor Mendel: The Friar Who Grew Peas, by Cheryl Bardoe and Jos. Smith & Physics Lab in the Home, by Robert Friedhoffer
Y2-5 (including Y3.5) - A Child's History of the World by Virgil Hillyer was published in 1924. Does it enter the Public Domain next year sometime?

I will work on going through the other pages soonish.
