    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! These are lovely, "old fashioned" books that simultaneously educate and entertain. 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.

    Learn about the countries of the world—and the people who live there—with this DK book. Divided into six continental sections, each begins with a map of the whole continent followed by descriptions of the people who live there. Each country (or group of countries) then has an individual map showing cities, towns and prominent geographical features. Country pages then go into detail about life in those countries. Colorful maps and photos are beautiful with plenty of action shots, people, and scenery. The text is engaging and interesting in short blurbs. A reference section contains information on world religions or political systems. A glossary and index are included. This is a great addition to your personal library as well as a resource for geography and world cultures. Revised and updated in 2010. 304 pgs, pb. ~ Sara

       Work in some geography & architecture to your coloring with gorgeous fine-line images of cities like Istanbul, London, Moscow, Chicago, Stockholm, and more! Add this to a unit study on world cultures, regional architecture, world geography, or just color it for the fun of the designs. These are not exact replicas of famous buildings but more of a representation of the architecture of the various cities. More than 60 scenes to color (double-sided pages.) High-quality paper will reduce marker bleed-through, but pencils are best if you plan to color both sides. 8.5x10.5”

    As I oooo and aaahhh my way through the beautiful pictures in this book, I am reminded of what an amazing place the earth is. It is diverse, rugged, and awesome. DK always does an amazing job with photographic presentation, and this book is no exception. Take a visual journey from the beginning of the solar system, to rocks and minerals, water formation, weather and climate, life on earth, the human world, and mapping the world. Every photo, illustration, and map is accompanied by a small amount of information. A country factfile summarizes all of the countries of the world by offering facts about each – area, population, capital, currency, official language, life expectancy, and information about an accompanying picture. A glossary is included for words that might be unfamiliar. I am always curious about new destinations and intrigued by photos from different areas (I might want to go there someday), but not all of the photos provide that information. Another thing to keep in mind is that this is from a secular perspective; theories as fact abound. 300+pgs, p/b. ~ Donna

    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)

    There can be no doubt! Beautiful Feet knows how to pick books to re-publish. This one – Abraham Lincoln, a reprint of a 1943 book by James Daugherty – is an engaging read. Filled with anecdotal stories, a poignant rendition of the painful times, insight into a solitary man whose sadness was etched into his face, and a faithful telling of his story; these all come to life both in the prose and in the two-tone lithographs of the author. 215 pgs, pb. ~ 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

    The dawn of the nineteenth century was wrought with hope in our rapidly changing world of communication, transportation and technology, but dark days loom as human rights and liberties are being trampled across the ocean. With the strong belief that "history is drama" Genevieve Foster invites you to join her in the exciting tale of history in the early 1800s. Part one introduces us to Richard Trevithick and Robert Fulton as they develop steam for a mode of transportation. The second part exposes us to leaders of nations, exploration and music: Napoleon Bonaparte, Thomas Jefferson, Touissant L' Overture, Lewis and Clark, and Beethoven. In part three we return to the progress made by Trevithick and Fulton, meet James Madison and learn of the downfall of Napoleon Bonaparte. Black and white illustrations and engaging text, this book is classic Genevieve Foster. Reprinted by Beautiful Feet Books. SC. 96 pgs. ~ Deanne

    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
