      The Teacher Guide is a combination book. It is part teacher book, with some course instructional information, detailed daily lesson plans, an overview of the activities built into the student worksheets, teaching tips for struggling learners, supply lists, suggestions for special projects, and answers for student worksheets. Information for the teacher (about 10% of the book) includes a section on the importance of narration and words of encouragement from the publisher. The remainder of the book is student worksheets (which are reproducible for your own homeschooling family). These worksheets provide the heart of a student’s journal to accompany the course. Very nicely designed and well-illustrated, there are daily front-and-back worksheets. These are similar but appropriately different for each age level between the two series. The whole TG is three-hole punched, and for the record, there are no tests in either series.

      America’s Story worksheets include Draw-Write pages (journaling lines, space for sketching, copywork), Mini-Project pages (cut & glue projects), Written Narration pages, Timeline pages (cards for each chapter with space for students to create their own timeline), a Special Prayer Book (a cut apart book for writing a weekly prayer for his/her country), and Artist Study (quick introduction to an artist with a variety of related art activities). Mapwork and vocabulary study are also a featured part of these pages.

    Full of colorful artwork and photos as well as black & white illustrations, vocabulary tidbits, maps, and biographical sketches, it is skillfully formatted into an appealing and engaging text. Each of the 28 chapters (i.e. weekly lessons) have text interspersed with Narration Breaks (place to stop and recount orally the information that has been covered) and questions: "Ready to Explore". Each chapter ends with a two-page photo montage (a feature I love) that pertains to the chapter's focus. For instance, there is a collection of Native American dwellings each with short informational captions in America's Story.

    Although Columbus is famous for it, he was not the first person to discover America. The Americas have been "discovered" again and again throughout history. This story takes you through the history of the Americas from pre-history through the 16th century when Europeans were here to stay. ~ Stephanie

    The things that Lisa, her older sister Ruth, her younger sister Annie, and her mother had to endure is incredible. They lived in Berlin in 1938 when the Nazis were first starting to take over. Lisa's father, who is referred to as Papa, decides in the very beginning of this story to leave Germany and establish a foundation for his family in America. Meanwhile, life in Berlin is getting more dangerous for Jewish people, and as the threat of war is turning into reality, Papa sends a letter over, suggesting that his wife and their daughters flee to Switzerland, masking the emigration as a vacation. Mother is allowed to bring only 10 marks per person with her, which puts her in a very challenging financial situation. She keeps Annie with her and is forced to send Ruth and Lisa to a camp where there are other children in similar situations or without parents at all. The girls don't get enough to eat and don't have the kind of care that all children need. After they visit their mother, she senses this and takes them out of the camp. Pretty soon, all three girls are sent to live with three different families in Zurich, where they are well-nourished and thrive. Mother collapses from pneumonia and spends this time in the hospital. She recovers and the family is on their way to being reunited with their father, whom they have not seen for nearly a year by this time, as he has been saving for their tickets to America. Sonia Levitin tells a touching, and very real story, that I am sure was sadly not uncommon.

    This storybook is a fun supplement to any study of the States, or just funny to read for pure entertainment. Full-color pages give unique personalities to all the cartoony states, and kids will learn the shape and general area of each state simply by reading through the book. It's the story about two bored states (Kansas and Nebraska) who throw a party to meet other states. At the party, the states decide they will all switch places so they can see other parts of the country. All the states are excited until they spend some time in their new locations (for example, Florida and Minnesota switch spots and Florida freezes while Minnesota gets sunburn). In the end, the states decide they belong in their original places after all. The story is cute and funny, and little comments the states make add a lot of humor. In the back of the book, each cartoon state is shown along with facts of the state's nickname, capital city, square miles, and population. 40 pgs, pb. Also available in a book and CD set, read by actors Lorelei King and Oliver Wyman. ~ Rachel

    This Mr. Pipes book features the two young Americans and Mr Pipes in a story about the worship of our Almighty God. You will be introduced to many great American hymn writers of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, including John Eliot, Samuel Davies and Phillips Brooks. Learn that true worship is not isolated from believers of the past but is, rather, built upon their Godly traditions. Sprinkled throughout the book are beautiful illustrations and reproductions of the music and words to some of the hymns.
