This book series does not just contain lists of what Hirsh feels the children should know at this grade, but it gives the actual information to teach it to them, the story to read aloud, etc. Intended for a parent to use with their child, especially geared toward schooled children with parents tutoring them after school to make sure the school is not leaving the child with gaps. If you are interested in that type of information I also recommend reading William Bennett's "The Educated Child" (in which he uses Hirsh's guidelines for what children in America need to know). This book is one in a series, they go up to 8th grade.
