     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!

    Nathan is the son of a temple moneychanger, and he knows that only Jews are allowed into the temple's inner court. Any Gentile found in the temple is killed, yet Nathan chooses to lead a young Gentile who is seeking God into the temple. From that moment, a long chain of events ensues and intertwines with the Biblical accounts found in Acts 6 and 7 that leaves Nathan to struggle with his Jewish heritage and the words spoken by those who are followers of Jesus.

    Learning about electrical circuits could not be easier. The child uses conductive (colored) dough as the “wires” and inserts LEDs with chubby contact points into the dough. Put two separate pieces of dough on the 9-volt battery-powered work table, poke the red wire lead into one piece of dough, the black wire lead into the other piece, and stick an LED so that the contact points touch both pieces of dough, and the LED lights up, showing that the circuit is complete. After covering these basics, other experiments are done using guide cards that fit into a recessed area under a clear plastic cover. The cute guide cards show exactly where to place the red, blue and yellow conductive dough, the white non-conductive dough, the wire leads, and up to four red and four yellow LEDs. Concepts covered include + and -, conductive and non-conductive, and series and parallel connections, all just by playing with dough!

    I have to admit I didn't expect this book to start in the kitchen. It "goes" all the places you might expect handyman repairs, fishing, hunting, even building a log cabin. But it does start in the kitchen. Still, it's definitely a boy's perspective on that room. Written by two homeschool moms, inspired by their active boys and handyman fathers, this is a great "how-to" for teaching all the practical aspects of a young man's education. Geared toward boys ages 9-15, I can also imagine girls enjoying both the practical kitchen basics with mom and time with dad learning some things from "his world." Regardless of how and with whom you choose to use it, you'll find this manual a handy reference. Instruction is straight-forward with just a hint of humor (you like to eat learn to cook) and peppered with helpful black & white illustrations. In the kitchen, there are practical rules like "don't put an empty pot on a hot burner it will ruin the pot!" as well as simple how-tos like washing the dishes and reading a recipe, with a nice selection of simple, healthy recipes. Other sections are more of what the title suggests manners, first aid and safety, around-the-house handyman, working with wood, gardening, outdoor adventures, and learning to manage money. There are lots of projects building a birdhouse, toolbox, log cabin, split-rail fence as well as skill-building gun safety, preparing a budget/bookkeeping, and knot-tying. We want our sons to learn these basic life skills, and it helps tremendously to have a "road map" like this one to lead us. 181 pgs, spiral-binding. ~ Janice

    If you are a student starting out in drawing, design, and drafting, these 9 pieces cover all your bases in one convenient set. This set allows you to create depth and dimension in your drawings with tools that develop highlights, mid-tones, and shadows. The five graphite pencils have a nice range of lead hardness including: 4H (hardest), 2H, HB, 2B, and 4B (softest) which lend themselves to detailed designs, line work, and shading. The Ebony Graphite pencil is extra smooth and soft, which works great for shading and drawing in illustrations, portraits, and figure drawings, or for making quick sketches. The Black Prismacolor Art Stix offers a bold, wider placement of color, when wide coverage is needed. In order to make highlights in your designs and drawings, you must have a way of "lifting" color or graphite. This kit includes the Prismacolor Scholar eraser (triangular shaped that fits comfortably in your hand) and the kneaded eraser (flexible-- like putty--that you can knead into any shape) for removing unwanted dots, lines, and smears to large areas of graphite. With this set, your drawings will take on a life of their own!

    Many people grow up hearing legends and tall tales about men like Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, and Johnny Appleseed, but how many of these stories feature a woman in the lead? Tall tales about women are hard to come by, but this great collection features 15 stories from American folklore that the author has unearthed so people can read about larger-than-life female characters. With figures such as Bess Call who can lift an ox over her head with one hand, Old Sally Cato who ran inside the mouth of a giant and stabbed its insides, and Pohaha, a native American who became a war chief and protected her whole tribe, readers of both genders will enjoy the legendary tales in this book. Black and white illustrations accompany the stories. By Robert D. San Souci, 140 pgs, pb. ~Rachel

    This classic by C.S. Lewis shares his views on the education of older students (and how educators of his day were leading students down a dangerous path), and uses that as a starting point to stress the importance of good values, courage, and honor in our society. He warns of the consequences of an education or social thinking that undermines the importance of good values and treats everything as relative. He states that some things are in fact objective (they are without doubt good or evil) and criticizes the way society is trying to rationalize the diminishment of the belief in natural values. Finally he warns of a future in which the values and morals of the majority are controlled by a small group of people who rule by a perfect understanding of psychology. One of most debated of Lewis's work, this book stresses that above all else, people should be taught to love good and hate evil. 114 pages, softcover. ~ Rachel

    "When I left my city home to be a teacher at a backwoods mission, I dreamed of adventure. I wasn't ready for the real challenges of life in these mountains. I'd have given up, if not for the children. I came to Cutter Gap to teach, but they show me everyday I'm here to learn." Christy Huddleston leaves her life of privilege and ease at the young age of 19 to teach at a school in the Smoky Mountains. Her faith is severely tested by her pupils, the love of two men, and the curious customs of the wild mountain people. However, as she braves her primitive mountain surroundings, she grows to love these people and the simple life that she leads in the heart of God's country. Christy touches the heart as it is based on the life of author Catherine Marshall's mother. This moving story is beautifully told and it will appeal to readers of all ages. 506 pages, hardcover. ~ elise

    My childhood was plagued with overcomplicated electronics kits with massive breadboards and a tangle of resistors. After completing several of the 40 experiments, I feel this kit is much more concise than many and easy to construct. This hands-on lab is designed especially for those who need a knowledge of electronics leading to a career in electronics, computers or robotics. This Tronix Book 1 lab kit will provide a good foundation in basic electronics concepts and components. A 93-page workbook provides 40 briefly described lessons that follow a 3-step process: taking inventory of parts needed; building the circuitry; and performing the experiment (with procedure and observation). Experiments range from basic electronics lessons (how to use the circuit board, reading values, etc.) to component lessons (how diodes, resistors, photocells, transistors, etc. work) to more complicated electronic project lessons. My favorite experiment was the moisture detector. Others include the light controller, police siren and insanity alarm game. Additionally, 13 pages of lessons cover basic DC electronics (Ohm’s, Kirchhoff’s voltage and current laws, and resistors in parallel and in series). At the end of the workbook are 9 pages of Build-the-Schematic exercises, in which the more advanced student will view a schematic, read the theory behind each item and follow the procedure to build. Students can also fill in the date of each schematic’s completion. Parts are identified visually and also according to lab used: includes a 6.5” x 1.5” breadboard, a 9V battery, ceramic disc capacitors, light emitting diodes, an integrated circuits/timer, a photocell, a battery snap, a timer, 3 standard LEDs,2 silicon rectifier, 4 pnp transistors, a speaker, resistors, a diode, a push-button switch, potentiometer, semiconductors, and 20 solid wires at different OHM ratings. While most helpful if learning alongside someone with some electrical experience, the variety of in-depth experiments allow high school students to have plenty of fun while learning ohm’s law, circuits in parallel versus series and voltage principals. ~ Steve

    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

    This classic book provides a not-so-typical coming of age tale of Holden Caulfield, who narrates his own (fictional) story. The story begins with Holden in psychiatric care, and the narrative basis of the novel comes from the teenager's recollection of his life events since the previous Christmas. The reader follows Holden through his expulsion from school to his bouts of delusion (and the many other experiences in between) that triggers Holden's nervous breakdown and ultimate leads to his placement in psychiatric care. Since its first publication in 1951, The Catcher in the Rye has repeatedly opened doors to debate and controversy (it has been known to be banned from schools, libraries, bookstores, etc). Many attribute this to the fact that it is a novel of "radical social opinion" (as it centers around issues such as profanity, sexual exploration, vulgarity, and more) even though it was written during a conservative time in American history. Although often criticized, the book provids a critical look at the many problems and concerns facing the American youth in the 1950s and society's attitude of the resulting human condition. By J.D. Salinger, 224 pgs, pb. ~ 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
