    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.

    Like all of Holling C. Holling's excellent books, readers will learn natural history almost effortlessly through an engaging story of a creature living and exploring its environment, and beautiful, detailed illustrations. Pagoo takes place in an ocean tidepool. Little Pagarus, or Pagoo, is a newly-hatched hermit crab, no larger than a pencil dot. His chances of survival are slim, but he has his instinct, affectionately titled "Old Pal" to guide him through the trials of growing up. Through the book he grows from a soft, translucent feathery being to a real hermit crab with claws and a shell home. Through it all, readers will come to learn about hermit crabs, other tide-pool and shallow ocean-dwellers, how they interact, and which predators little Pagoo needs to watch out for. With its intricate illustrations, personal story, and excellent blend of fact and fictional story, this book, first published in the '50's, surpasses any book on the subject I've seen today! - Jess

    I love reading about the guiding hand of God in our nation's history. I find the story fascinating and the men of faith and conviction inspiring. This book is written in the same vein. Based on the assumption that all of history is providential, we learn how God's presence was evident at our nation's founding in the hearts and minds of the men who fought for independence and framed the Constitution. The book opens with an overview of geography and ancient history before moving to American history. A portion of the book is devoted to the history of education in our country. Later chapters focus on our decline as a nation, and a reconstructionist view is presented for bringing our nation back to what the authors believe God wants it to be. This book is used as a teacher resource for the Beautiful Feet American history studies. Lots of pictures and illustrations. 300 pgs.

    If you want to dig a little deeper into source documents referred to in America's Providential History, get the accompanying Documentary Sourcebook. Inspiring in its own right, this book includes speeches and documents that portray the Christian influence in the founding and history of our nation. A sampling of the offerings in this book includes excerpts from Columbus' Journal of His First Voyage, Fast and Thanksgiving Days of New England, Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution, Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom, Washington's Farewell Address, excerpts from Democracy in America, the 1853 report from the Senate Judiciary Committee about the importance of congressional chaplains. 136 pg, pb.

    For ease of tying these two books together, consider the Teacher's Guide, which includes: APH chapter outlines; study questions for each of the 18 chapters, with answers; three exams, with answers; and a list of books for further study. 102 pgs, pb. ~ Bob

    Newly expanded edition includes an exclusive behind the scenes look at the book's creation, a biography of the life and work of Ingri and Edgar D'Aulaire, sketches from the authors' personal notebooks and photos from their family album.

    Golden fleece, titans, and muses, oh my! This is a very thorough collection of ancient Greek myths accompanied by artful pencil drawings in color and black and white.

    Starting with Gaea and Uranus (Earth and sky), stories are chronological to the Titans, Zeus and his descendants. Supporting characters are also given their due. Children will read about Hera, Hades, Persephone, Pandora, Centaurs, Orpheus, the Gorgon, King Midas, Oedipus, and more.

    The tales are written for children to understand. Add this book to a unit study of ancient Greece, the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Mediterranean region, or even as a study of ancient religions. Compare their beliefs with modern ones. ~Sara
