    Need project ideas for a unit study? Do you want your kids to do some hands-on activities with an Ancient Cultures lesson? This resource is here to help. This book contains twenty ideas covering all seven ancient wonders: Great Pyramid, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Colossus of Rhodes, Temple of Artemis, Mausoleum of Helicarnassus, and the Pharos of Alexandria. There are informational factoids, as well as travel tips. (For example, if you visit a McDonald's in Egypt, you can order a McFalafel!). The project ideas vary, but all have good directions and how-to illustrations. As an example, when learning about pyramids, you can re-create the sledges used to move the giant stones using pencils and a heavy book. Kids are given the dimensions of the Great Pyramid, then challenged to calculate how long it would take to walk around the base. To solve, mark off twenty feet, time how long it takes to walk the distance, then do the math. Older kids could easily follow directions in here without parent help and share their finished product with you, but younger kids will need some guidance. If you don't have the time to find project ideas elsewhere, this is a great little book of ideas! ~ Sara

    This riveting biography provides you with an inside look into the enchanting life of a powerful woman in European history, Eleanor of Aquitaine. Born in 1122, she was just fifteen when she inherited her father's vast lands in Aquitaine, France. In a quick political move, the King of France arranged for his son, Louis the VII to marry Eleanor, as a way to gain control of her duchy. Eleanor was a well-educated woman, politically savvy, and not content to be confined by the traditional gender roles of her time. By the time she was twenty-nine she grew tired of her marriage to Louis, and she sought after a divorce. Afterwards, she pursued her next groom, Henry the Duke of Normandy. Henry soon was named the rightful heir to the English throne, and he took his place there in 1154. The author also points out that Eleanor was not only one of the most powerful political figures of her day, but she also helped to shape the future for the arts and humanities, as it was one of her true passions. This insightful narrative is a must-read for any lover of French and English history. Pb, 183 pgs.

    A masterful account of this most amazing American. "A biography of Franklin written with a sweep and verve worthy of its subject and brilliantly illustrated." — The New Yorker. This superb biography of the printer, statesman, author, reformer, inventor and ambassador reveals a Benjamin Franklin who in his time lived more lives than many men together. The brilliance and inexhaustible ingenuity of mind that fascinated his contemporaries continues to charm us now in Daugherty's work of perhaps America's most distinguished citizen and most interesting human being. Here is an understanding of the Poor Richard that underlay all Franklin's life, through honors and distinctions, foreign and domestic, saying with shrewd Yankee economy: "Well done is better than well said." As with all of Daugherty's books, his illustrations of two- and three-color compliment the meaty text for the enjoyment of all. (description by Beautiful Feet)

    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

    The literature of a time period is always one of our best sources of information. This is especially true about a long ago time period like the medieval centuries. These are the stories that have withstood the test of time – and translation – and appeal. This anthology – edited by Rebecca Berg Manor (daughter of Beautiful Feet author, Rea Berg) – provides us with an excellent (and manageable) cross-section of literature that traces medieval culture from the beginnings of Christendom to the Age of Exploration. Selections, organized by type of literature, include excerpts from Augustine's Confessions (Early Christian), Deeds of Charlemagne (Romanesque) Battle of Brunanburh (Old English), Song of Roland (Arthurian), Song of the Creatures (Late Latin), Divine Comedy (Dante). Used as a Senior High resource for Beautiful Feet's Medieval History: A Literature Approach, this is a good reference/resource book for any high school world history course. ~ Janice
