    "Won't you join up, Comrades?" Kantorek, a schoolteacher, addresses his class of young men. Those days seem long ago to Paul Bäumer and his classmates, all of whom enlisted in the German army of World War I. Although they are hardly twenty years of age, in a matter of time the fighting, death, and poor living conditions around them have aged them well beyond their years. Paul remains close to his classmates and they find a few other good friends in the army. Time after time, their unit is called up to the front, and they are forced to deal with the horrors of bombardments on their trenches, the shells, the gas, and the death of so many comrades. This book is a very vivid account of a war where young men of the same generation but different uniforms were forced to grow up early in the war. - Melissa

    In this powerful memoir, Elie Wiesel tells the story of his teenage years as a Jewish boy in Transylvania in the 1940s. With straightforward explanation of events and his own thoughts, Wiesel shares how restrictions against Jews slowly increased, how his family and friends were moved to a ghetto, how he was separated from his mother and sister and never saw them again, how he watched his father slowly change and die, and how he endured the horrors of Auschwitz. The explanations aren't terribly graphic, but you do get a realistic picture of the atrocities that were committed. Though the memoir itself has been around for more than forty years, this is a new translation by his wife, Marion Wiesel, who corrects some details and more accurately renders his testimony in English. Also includes a new preface and a copy of Wiesel's Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech. 120 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    This classic description of the contributions of the ancient Greeks to Western civilization was written by Edith Hamilton in the 1930s. With excitement and an obvious love for the culture, the author tells the story of how the Greeks in Athens developed a new way of life in the Western world around the 5th century BC. Stressing the importance of freedom and reason, Hamilton covers Greek philosophy, art, writing, politics, religion, lifestyle, and more. She also compares these aspects of culture to other people groups at the time to show how the Greeks were and are different. Various people like Plato, Socrates, Aeschylus, and Pindar are highlighted, and parallels are drawn between figures such as Aeschylus and Shakespeare and Aristophanes and William S. Gilbert. While describing the historical high of Greek culture and influence, the author shows how the world is still affected by this culture, their philosophy, and their way of life. Filled with examples, the book shows how and why the ancient Greeks still influence our world. 212 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    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!

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.

    Perhaps this text was part of my elementary education. The timing fits – and it would explain why the events lovingly memorialized in this publication are still firmly planted in my memory. First published in 1955 and now republished by Beautiful Feet, utilizing the historical accuracy and storytelling ability of Earl Schenck Miers and the amazing illustrations of James Daugherty (full-color, inked drawings), this book takes the reader through tales of adventure, heroism, and patriotism. From Leif's Viking boat explorations of the northeastern coastline to the atom bomb's close to the second World War, you will read about everything in between – explorers, founders, soldiers, adventurers, settlers, inventors, statesmen, educators, and many more – in the fifty stories that make up this 315 pg, paperback book. A worthy addition to your home library or ideal for any literature-based history course or unit study, the author himself sums up its scope: "…everywhere signs of the greatness of God. It is indeed the one truth in which we all believe. It is indeed our richest heritage." ~ Janice

    In Galileo's time, people didn't study with the purpose of learning new things. Instead, they studied what people before them had believed, like Aristotle and Ptolemy, two of the ancient Greek thinkers who had lived years before. It was not popular to have new ideas, but that didn't stop Galileo. Practically from the time he began school, Galileo was learning new things and challenging the old ideas through experiments and tests. This book shares the story of the man who had the courage and determination to ask questions and prove that he was right to a world that was not ready for his methods. Students will learn much about the world of Galileo as well as his scientific ideas through this interesting, readable book. 95 pages.
