    Some of the best stories are the ones that come from real people in history. One such story starts with a boy who was raised a Quaker in the Pennsylvania region before the founding of the United States. Benjamin West enjoyed painting so much he did what most would never think of doing: He made paint from clay, plants, and dirt, and fashioned paintbrushes from the tail of his cat, Grimalkin! Follow the great American writer Marguerite Henry as she traces the early years of this young man and his cat in this exciting tale. 147 pgs, pb. John

       Learn about portraits, still lifes, landscapes, sculpture and loads more terms/concepts as you follow a silly presentation of some serious art! There aren’t many art books that are a funny read. It is just full of interesting little nuggets! Did you know that for thousands of years artists used a color called mummy brown (made from actual mummies)? As you read, there are lots of activities for the reader to complete that have to do with that page’s theme: when learning about color tones, you will color in the same little picture with a warm and cool color palette to notice how they feel different to the viewer. Four pages of stickers make it even more interactive! I think students who love art would enjoy this book, but it would also introduce the non-artist to some great information! Some of the famous artists include: Van Gogh, Lowry, Kusama, Lichtenstein, Klee, Rousseau and many more. 80pp, 8.5” x 11”, pb.  ~Sara

    Five hundred pages of art history in a 5x6.5" book? What? Yes, it's true and I love it! Imagine a big beautiful coffee table style book, full of beautiful color photos arranged chronologically, that you can easily pick up and read. It is a comprehensive reference book with a helpful index in the back, perfect for adding to any art curriculum or even your world history program. Periods include pre- and early history (40,000-500 BCE); antiquity; late antiquity & the middle ages; renaissance; baroque; 18th century; 19th century; 20th century before 1945; and art after 1945. For families concerned about nudity, there are several statues and paintings depicting both males and females in various states of undress. I counted about 50 among the 900 images in the book. The variety of artists is outstanding. The text is interesting and very readable, and the information is factual and solid. For a student interested in art, this book is a must have. 512pp, pb (1.5" thick). ~ Sara

    More than just artist biographies, this book goes behind the scenes of many great works of art from a variety of periods and styles. Everyone from the Dutch masters to modern American artists are here. Gorgeous color photos accompany interesting text. There are 40 projects for students to try themselves, ranging from writing a poem to making a collage to creating an action figure or puppet and writing a story about it. Over 50 artists including Rembrandt, Matisse, Degas, O’Keefe, and Calder. It’s a different approach to an art book and I quite liked it. In fact, I read the whole book! It could be a good starting point for a unit study or just add it to any art program at home or at school. 175 pp, sc. ~ Sara

    Another fascinating Bible history book by Ruth Beechick, author of Adam and His Kin. The product of much research and knowledge of ancient history and the Bible, it is suitable for teens or adults as a short course in ancient history. But, more than that, it is the story of truth - and how that truth has come to be perverted through history. It is the story of righteous and wicked men and kings. It is the story of civilizations - how and where they sprung up and flourished. It's the story of our roots. The historical and literary evidences of Biblical truth, the tracing of the recorded truth that eventually became our Bible, and the chronology of our "family tree" are masterfully woven together in this extremely readable text. Throughout Ruth's narrative, we can see the origins of false religions and flawed world views. Taking us through Genesis 1-11, it contains six units, corresponding to the "books" written by the earliest recorders of history. Using the King James translation, each unit begins with the actual Scripture to read. A Scripture study includes activities to help students understand the reading - activities such as drawing maps, listing genealogies, memorizing key verses, noting specific words used, comparing the reading to other Scriptures, etc. Topic studies address particular references in the Scripture reading and expand on them, using historic, literary, and linguistic sources. Ruth's many insights and expert compilation of information make these studies engrossing. Each topic is followed by questions that can be answered orally or in writing. Further study has the student do a little research and reporting of his own. In these sections, source books and other readings are recommended. There are also suggestions for several correlating writing projects. If using the study with several students, you may want to assign each a different one. Other types of activities are also included, varying by unit. The book is recommended for use independently for junior high and up, or for a family study with children of all ages. I know my eight-year-old would enjoy this study as much (or more) as my older children. I would be surprised if parents purchasing this book as an independent course for their older children didn't end up reading it from cover to cover themselves.

    Here are 150 activities that teach the styles, works, and techniques of the great masters - Van Gogh, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and more. To imitate Michelangelo's Sistene Chapel, the young artist paints while reclined on his back with paper taped to the bottom of a table. To experience Van Gogh's style, children mix paints into a thick substance called "impasto" and then paint with heavy, swirling brush strokes. Each activity contains a brief history of the artist, a project, and an example of that artist's work.
