    A wonderful unit study incorporating geography, history and science, based on the Holling C. Holling books. Students learn about three main geographic regions of the U.S. as well as a basic introduction to World geography. Designed to be used with maps (see below) that children color, label and complete as they study each region via the books. Paddle-to-the-Sea covers the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence River, and North Atlantic. Tree in the Trail includes the Great Plains and Southwest. Minn of the Mississippi leads children on an adventure down the Mississippi River and into the Gulf of Mexico. Seabird presents an overview of world geography. Pagoo follows the life of a young hermit crab, trying to grow up in a tide pool - without being eaten along the way. If you've never read a Holling C. Holling book, you're in for a treat! These are lovely, "old fashioned" books that simultaneously educate and entertain. Each blends science, history, and geography into a narrative told from the viewpoint of a central "character"'s adventures or experiences. It's difficult to imagine a more appropriate choice for studying these topics. Can be used as a one-semester course at 2-3 lessons per week or a 1-year course at 1-2 lessons per week.

    That proverbial talk about the “birds and the bees.” You know you need to do it. Teaching your children about God’s plan for sex and all the male/female interaction that leads up to it is part of what it means to bring up a child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. And you want to do it – sort of. It’s just that it’s so very uncomfortable – and you don’t know what to say – and there might be questions asked that make you ashamed or guilty. . .  Dennis and Barbara Rainey (parents of six) of Family Life Ministries know you need “a plan” and they’ve provided a lovely one – a getaway weekend kit complete with instructions for you, guidelines for what to do, excellent speakers to get the difficult words out in the open by offering interesting audio sessions, an engaging format, a solid study of Biblical values, and enjoyable scripture songs.

      The goal of this program is to encourage and empower parents to discuss the difficult topics of intimacy, sexual behavior, and personal feelings that are facing their children as they enter the preteen years. To give parents the tools they need to both challenge their sons and daughters as they enter the pathway to Christian adulthood as well as provide the foundation for future discussions and sharing. To build a mentoring relationship with your children that continues past the weekend and into all the years leading up to adulthood.

      Preteen? Isn’t that jumping the gun a bit for the birds and the bees? Not in today’s culture. It’s literally everywhere around us – and now in ways unimagined by all previous generations. This program is designed to set the stage for a close parent/child relationship as the child moves into this period. Topics are handled biblically, carefully, and tastefully. Some topics are left optional for the parent.

      A weekend getaway. That’s the general setting. One child – with the parent all to himself (boys with fathers; girls with mothers) – doing an activity of his choice that he loves to do and spending time listening to “talks” and working through study material together. It’s a wonderful affirmation that the love of the parent can transcend the upcoming changes that the child will be experiencing.

      There are five audio sessions and one optional session: 1) the adolescent experience, 2) how to handle peer pressure, 3) changes that are ahead (God’s design for sex), 4) purity (protecting sexual innocence), and 5) dating (properly engaging with the opposite sex). The optional session covers really delicate issues (masturbation, pornography, and same-sex attraction) and can be inserted after the fourth session and before the fifth if the parent chooses,

      The Getaway Kit provides the necessary framework: a tour guide for the parent, travel journal for the preteen including 25 follow-up devotions, CDs containing 5 sessions, scripture memory songs and downloadable MP3s of all sessions.

      The Tour Guide is for the parent – basically a leader’s guide for this very focused Bible study. This little manual includes sections on planning the getaway, an itinerary for the weekend, a suggested schedule, preparation checklists (and needed supplies), guidelines for writing a note to your son/daughter, and very specific suggestions for praying for your son/daughter. Also included is a page-for-page reproduction of the Travel Journal (accent color rather than full color) so you can work through it with your son/daughter.

      The Travel Journal is for your son/daughter and is designed as a companion for the experiences of the weekend. With a travel theme and an engaging appearance, it provides a place to write notes (from the talks), thoughts, and answers to questions as well as the guidelines for godly Christian living provided by this study material. There are 25 follow-up devotions that continue with a similar theme and help strengthen the biblical core of the young adult’s understanding of the various issues. This is a nicely done keepsake book with a hardcover, full-color graphics, and an elastic strap for place-keeping.

      The CD Set provides the core material for the heart of the weekend and the program. Eight CDs provide the weekend talk sessions. These sessions feature scripture memory songs, dramatic vignettes, humorous features, real-life stories from teens and adults, and lots of teaching from parents and experts that have “been there, done that.” Songs are CCM-type of music with understandable lyrics, singable melodies, and full instrumentation backup.

      Having “that” talk with your children may never be entirely comfortable, but this kit gives you a plan; the certainty of godly, biblical content; and the promise of enjoyable memories.

    When I wanted my daughters to learn to sew, I didn't trust my own knowledge of how to do it right and arranged for them to have private lessons. It was great! But expensive. This one-semester course would have been much better, I think. All you need to go from complete beginner to knowing you have the ability to tackle any basic pattern is right here. Well-done video instruction (the presenter has a pleasant voice and manners) allows you to repeat any part if you didn't quite get it or need to review later. A complete course manual parallels all video class material as well as provides additional content (like a fabric chart) and illustrations. Patterns for both adult sizes as well as child (pre-teen) sizes of a classic A-line dress (or nightgown) are provided for the final project. [Patterns are PDF files for you to print. Patterns will need to be taped together (adult sizes will have lots of taping) but the patterns are very sturdy and can be used repeatedly without the frustration of ripped tissue.] Like I said, it's all here. And it's non-consumable – you can use it for multiple children at one time – or sequentially.

    The 65 video lessons (5-6 per week) are 5-10 minutes each and include sewing machine fundamentals (i.e. threading properly, getting the correct thread tension, choosing the right stitch), different fabric types and "personalities", coordinating colors, how to read a standard pattern, how to measure your body correctly, and how to sew using a straight stitch and a zigzag stitch. Assignments are given via the video and the student is expected to do additional reading in the manual. With many lessons the student is encouraged to make journal entries as well as a sample to put in a binder thus creating a class record – and providing the basis for assessment (if you wish). Although instruction is simple and very understandable, it's also quite comprehensive and everything you would expect from a beginner's course including linings/interfacing, casings/hems, gathering, sleeves, buttonholes, buttons, and zippers. It all comes together in the final project that could be a matching mother/daughter dress if you preferred. Several field trips (such as to a local fabric store) are encouraged.

    The binder/manual has sleeves for the DVDs, an extensive class syllabus that gives the topic, skill, classwork, and homework or follow-up for each class as well as a materials list. Periodic skills assessments involve sewing projects – pin cushion, simple apron, and simple skirt. All of this leads up to the final project – a classic A-line dress (or nightgown, if you prefer). Machine sewing skills are emphasized so a well-running basic sewing machine is necessary. Five DVDs provide the lessons and a sixth CD-ROM provides the pdf pattern files (patterns include child sizes plus adult sizes). The 189-page binder manual includes a thorough glossary of sewing terms as well as the detailed information that parallels the videos. ~ Janice

    Based on her own childhood memories of growing up in San Francisco, author Kathryn Forbes introduces us to the delightful character of Mama, the mother of a Norwegian immigrant family growing up in San Francisco during the early 1900s. Despite the many obstacles that are thrown her way, Mama always manages to make the best out of it and conquer the situation. She is an extremely resourceful person who leads her family through such trying financial times as paying for Papa's expensive operation (without ever having to dip into the mystery bank account!). Mama's Bank Account is a heart warming tale about a loving mother who always unconditionally puts her family first. First published in 1943, this book was the inspiration behind the successful play, movie, and television show "I Remember Mama". ~ Enh

    Chemistry labs can be scary and overwhelming, especially if you don't have a curriculum that lays them out for you. It can be expensive to buy the equipment and many of the chemicals are restricted and difficult to obtain.

    MicroChem Experiment Lab is a kit that takes away some of the pressure and expense of those high school chemistry labs. This kit includes scaled-down amounts of chemicals (about 1/100th the usual amount) and is enough to do experiments about 5 times. By scaling back on the chemicals and using plastic equipment (where possible) the cost is controlled a bit and there is less of a problem with chemical disposal at the end of the course. Chemicals come in dropping' bottles, so they are ready for use. No mixing and less spilling is a definite benefit to this kit. Experiments may cause for a drop' or drops' of a chemical, so the special bottles are great for dispensation.

    The kit includes a 119-page manual that contains introductory information, how to use it, and safety information. The manual includes experiments and instruction for each goals, materials/equipment needed, background information, and step-by-step procedures. Suggested answers are given for questions in each experiment, and solutions to experiments are included at the back of the manual. If you are already using a curriculum and just need labs, an included chart shows correlation to A Beka Chemistry, 2nd ed.; ACE Chemistry, 1996 ed.; Alpha Omega Publications, grade 11 Chemistry; Apologia Exploring Creation with Chemistry; Bob Jones Chemistry, 3rd ed.; Glencoe Science, Chemistry: Matter and Change; and Prentice Hall, Chemistry. If you are using a different curriculum and just need the labs, just match the labs up to the concept you are studying for a lab companion. This kit isn't a complete chemistry curriculum, so you should be using a course text for explanations; there is also an assumption that students using this kit have knowledge of Algebra.

    There is a lengthy list of items included in the kit. Call our customer service if interested in the complete list; however, the chemicals included are acetic acid, bromophenol blue indicator, calcium nitrate, copper nitrate, glycerin, hydrochloric acid, lead nitrate, nickel nitrate, phenolphthalein indicator paper, potassium hydroxide, potassium iodide, sodium acetate, sodium hydroxide, sodium oxalate, sodium sulfate, sodium thiosulfate, universal indicator paper, zinc nitrate, magnesium sulfate, potassium hydrogen phthalate, cetyl alcohol, and palmitic acid liquids are in 0.1M dropping bottles.

    As with all kits, there is always a list of items you will need to supply. Most are household items black paper, books, felt-tip pens, water soluble ink, distilled water, food coloring, graph paper, ice, matches, natural indicators, paper towels, clear tape, printed paper, scissors, shallow pan, table salt, stapler, source of heat (microwave, stove, etc.), stopwatch or watch with a second hand, table sugar, vinegar, and white paper. Another item mentioned in the experiments is a voltmeter, which you would need to provide. You can either skip those labs or a voltmeter can be purchased at a minimal cost.

    These are real chemistry labs intended for the college-prep level of learning and can be used to really beef-up your high school chemistry course. ~ Donna

    Supplies included in this kit: instruction manual, 9-volt battery, 15mL, 30mL, 150mL plastic beakers, 50mL glass beaker, Capillary tubes, Chromatography paper, Conductivity apparatus, Cotton swabs, Electrolysis device, Felt-tip pen with black, water-soluble ink, 10mL plastic, graduated cylinder, 1.0mL measuring spoon, Graduated, mini, and thin stem pipettes, Plastic toothpicks, 96-well reaction plate, 24-well reaction plate, Rubber bands, 15 cm ruler, Safety goggles, Fine sandpaper, Spring clamp, 6x50 mm test tubes, 12x75 mm test tubes, Celsius thermometer (-10° to 102°C), Washing bottle, Wire gauze, Wood splints, Lab Manual, Acetic acid, Calcium nitrate, Copper nitrate, Hydrochloric acid, Lead nitrate, Potassium Hydroxide, Potassium iodide, Sodium acetate, Sodium hydroxide, Sodium oxalate, Sodium sulfate, Sodium thiosulfate, Zinc nitrate, Magnesium sulfate, Potassium hydrogen phthalate, Cetyl alcohol, Palmitic acid, Bromophenol blue indicator, Glycerin, Phenolphthalein indicator paper, Universal indicator paper, Copper, Lead, Nickel, Zinc. – all solutions are in 0.1M bottles.

     You’d like to teach your child the Five Solas of the Reformation. Why not use outer space to do so? What at first may seem like an unusual approach is actually a clever way for children to learn. Each student becomes Agent Z, who receives urgent messages from mission headquarters. You decode each message using the provided decoder handbook pages and then discover its meaning. Decoding the message leads to each Bible lesson. During the lesson, the translated message is repeated and then a Bible verse is explained and memorized. Then a related Bible story is shared with Scripture references (lessons are taken from the four Gospels). The five days (lessons) help your student travel through the Five Solas and could be done over five weeks or in a five-day format. From Catechism for Kids. A teacher’s guide is available to download free from the publisher web site. Extra blank pages are included in back for notetaking. Non consumable, 44 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    ADHD is the most common behavior disorder that affects children ages 5-18, and I suspect it is also the most understood. Struggling to understand the behavior and emotions directly impacts parents, teachers, friends and especially the suffering child. Unfortunately for the child, the need to fit in' a school setting or other social group creates untold anxiety and feelings of inadequacy, which lead to a poor self-esteem and acting out behaviors in the teen years.

    As parents and teachers, we want to come alongside our young people and help them recognize that yes, they are different than other children but it does not have to have a negative impact on their lives. Written to support teachers and parents, this book provides a variety of activities to help children with ADHD appreciate the positive traits of ADHD, their unique positive character traits, and master social skills. Chapters include Understanding ADHD, Learning despite ADHD, Coping in Relationships and Celebrating ADHD, with a look at successful adults with ADHD. Includes a variety of activities many which require at least one more participant. Pre-and Post-Test is included, along with a completion certificate. Reproducible for classroom/family use. Answer Key in back. SC. 64 pgs. ~ Deanne

     Its subtitle, Leading Your Kids to Succeed in Life, indicates the book’s main focus: outlining practical and effective parenting skills to be intentional rather than reactive. Are you an “overfunctioning” parent? Are you doing what
    children should do for themselves? Find out by taking a quiz at the start of the book. Then, learn the various parenting stages: Inspecting, Correcting, Protecting, Neglecting, Suspecting and Resurrecting. Understanding these stages will help you realize how to best approach your children and comprehend why they are actingas they are.
      Work your way through each extremely accessible, practical Mistake chapter full of fundamental advice and everyday application. None of the 12 mistakes (such as praising the wrong things, removing all pain, inconsistency) are deliberate, but each can cripple children as they mature into adults. Each chapter follows a similar pattern. Learn the mistake and why parents/leaders tend to make it. Next, learn principles and how to practically apply them to
    counteract the tendency. Tim Elmore’s writing is compelling and propelled me along. He writes in a way that provides plenty of easy ways to retain the information. His goal is to help us as parents raise children that reach their potential, self-lead, and expect something significant from life and from themselves. This book would be a great resource for anyone who leads children.

      Subtitled, Celebrating Great Women of the Bible, this is a Bible story book with a unique focus: encouraging brave living. Each Bible story shows how God uses ordinary girls to do amazing things for Him just by following His lead! To relay the stories, you are introduced to a diverse group of five girls: Hope, Glory, Honor, Gracie, and Faith, who form a youth group called Brave Girls. They work together to know God more and honor Him by telling others about Him. Each girl tells a different Bible story (18 stories from the Old Testament and 13 from the New), connects it a bit with her own life, and then ends each with a brief devotion-like summary and a one-sentence prayer. The predominant focus is the Bible story, but full-color, water-color type illustrations fill the accompanying page. Note an interesting layout choice: occasionally, you must turn the book to read a few stories that are set in landscape mode. An additional section adds a brief quiz to see which brave girl you are most like. This seems a bit of a fluffy touch, but I think the goal is to help girls identify the talents with which they can glorify God. The ending contains a 5-page collection of “Brave” verses that serve for Scripture memory, and a letter from the Brave Girls. While sharing crucial Bible truths, I think this devotional might also encourage girls to live in faith and fellowship. 7/25” x 9.25”, 208 pp, hc. ~ Ruth

    This popular nutrition savvy weight loss series has taken America by storm. Promoting a "No Diet Weight Loss" solution these books focus on educating consumers and providing food swap ideas and recipes for some of the most popular meals at home and in restaurants. Eat This, Not That Supermarket Survival Guide introduction focuses on making wise choices at the grocery store, including serving sizes (labels can be deceptive), high fructose corn syrup, trans-fats, food additives and how the nutritional content of animal, fruits, and vegetables have changed over the past forty years.

    Chapter 1, Mastering the Market, shares food industry secrets (you may not want to read this near mealtime!) and the twenty worst packaged foods in America. Chapter 2 focuses on the produce aisle. For instance: Did you know iceberg lettuce has the nutritional equivalency of a plastic office plant? Also included are: tips for selecting the perfect fruit/vegetables; surviving the salad bar; and an organic fruit primer which shows you the organic options that are worth the extra cost. Chapter 3 centers on meat and fish. Choosing lean meats and making sense of meat labels are emphasized. Chapters 4 and 5 focus on stocking the perfect pantry and refrigerator. In this section, you are introduced to the well-known "Eat This, Not That" comparisons. In these chapters you will find comparisons for deli meats, hot dogs/sausage, yogurt, butter/butter substitutes, grains, breads/rolls/buns, tortillas/pitas/wraps, cereal, sauces, salad dressing, canned/cupped fruits, canned/jarred vegetables plus many others. Chapter 6 Snacks and Sweets provides a healthy snack matrix, the trans-fattiest foods in the supermarket (the top ten list may surprise you!), and the "Eat This, Not That" comparisons for chips, pretzels/snack mixes, boxed crackers, protein bars, granola and cereal bars, popcorn plus many others. Chapter 7 guides you through the healthiest (and unhealthiest) freezer selections with the "Eat This, Not That" comparisons for various ice cream, frozen yogurt and frozen treat products. Also compared are frozen items: pizza, pasta, fish, beef and chicken entrees, appetizers and more. Chapter 8 contains the "Drink This, Not That" beverage decoder and drink comparisons for juices, smoothies and shakes, tea, energy drinks, and more.

    Money saving shopping guide and ten "Cook this, Not that" classic American recipes conclude this eye catching, brightly illustrated book. This book would be a tremendous benefit for families seeking to eat healthier or those simply curious about the nutritional content of popular items in the marketplace. The full color photographs of actual grocery products may be beneficial in engaging children and teaching them to recognize healthy and unhealthy foods as we lead them in making healthy personal food choices. The smaller size 6 ½" x 6 ½" makes it a perfect carry along with your weekly shopping trips. 319 pgs., sc. ~ Deanne

     You are a Scottish clan leader, and the winter snows have melted, leaving the ground soft beneath the stones marking your clan’s territory. Soft enough, perhaps, to roll into your neighbor’s property and expand your own? In Schotten Totten (Scottish Skirmish), players attempt to win a majority of the 9 territory stones by playing cards, one at a time, in front of stones. The deck is composed of 54 cards: 9 numbers in 6 colors. Once a set of 3 cards have been played on each side of a given stone, the cards are compared and the higher-ranking set (based on rarity) wins the stone. Since cards are played one at a time, and players only hold 6 cards at a time, it’s difficult to plan far ahead. This leads to quite a bit of tension and bluffing; if you play too many strong suits, your opponent will act accordingly and counter with weak, throwaway cards. If you try and balance, your opponent may win key stones you had counted on! The game can be won by either taking a 5 stones total or 3 adjacent stones. Hilarious illustrations top off the theme of this 20-minute card game. Great for competitive Scots young and old!

      This counting frame is a handy tool to aid students in understanding number relationships. The frame consists of 2 rows of 10 beads, broken into 2 sets of 5 beads. This allows students to make mental images of numbers and develop addition and subtraction strategies. For example, push one color to the left and the other to the right and see how many addition and subtraction facts students can create. As students are encouraged to think of numbers in groups, this tool will help lead to automaticity of basic facts. ~ Gina
