    Not to leave out the eager younger children, this volume provides mini Five in a Row- style lessons for youngsters. This book; however, is divided into two parts, the first being similar to the other curriculum guides. Just as in the original series, each unit is built around a simple, classic children's storybook. This book differs from the older volumes in that it is not structured around a week. The purpose is simply to provide an array of activities for each book that engage children and lay the foundation for further learning. Some of the activities are subject related, such as Bible, science, math, language arts, and art; others are various skills such as learning shapes, sequencing, colors or problem solving, and the rest are centered on specific topics, like relationships, contentment, birthdays or another book-related idea. The second part of this book focuses on arming parents with creative ideas to build learning readiness. This section is a treasure trove of activities that help develop reading readiness and motor skills or focus on the arts. Additional activities also capitalize on teachable moments that arise during bath time, in the kitchen, or during a trip to the store. 149 pgs. ~ Steph

    Written for slightly older students, the format of Volume 4 is slightly different. This volume contains 15 lengthier unit studies that can be stretched to two weeks per book. Christian content is incorporated into Vol. 4 through related 'Christian Character and Bible Study Lessons.' FIAR Cookbook lessons are also provided for each unit, as are the laminatd story disks. So while this volume seems pricey compared to the rest, it's also more than twice the size of the other volumes and includes more additional content that you don't get packaged with Vol. 1-3.

    Looking to add a little "spice" to your Five in a Row lessons? The Five in a Row Cookbook is a collection of recipes that add a tasty dimension to the lessons.

Recipes are included for each story in FIAR Volumes 1, 2, and 3 and Beyond FIAR Volumes 1, 2, and 3. The book is written by Becky Jane Lambert, daughter of FIAR author Jane Claire Lambert. Becky has fond memories of cooking alongside her mother; create your own using this book!

    A long time ago in a village in Maine, two sisters owned a general store. Not very much is known about them, but an old watchmaker from the town remembered that they had a beautiful carriage and the finest horse in town. Who could've taken care of the horse while the sisters ran the store all day? Could it have been the sneaky horse trader, a friendly man crippled by a logging accident, or a pair of well-mannered children?

    Grandfather, Thomas, and the cat, Ringo, find themselves in the middle of a storm, where all the lights have gone out. They're trying to figure out what to do because they can't see enough to read and the electricity is out, so they can't watch TV either. Grandfather decides to tell Thomas of a tale about when he was a little boy and a storm he found himself afraid in. He tells of how his bravery took over when he realized that his little dog, Melvin, was all alone outside and that he had to put his fear aside to venture out and rescue him. Written by Mary Stolz and beautifully illustrated by Pat Cummings.

    Many people are familiar with Gary Chapman's book, The Five Love Languages, written to husbands/wives, and its sequel, The Five Love Languages of Children. Whether or not you've read these (and it's highly recommended that you do!), if you have teenagers, this would be an extremely worthwhile read. Gary Chapman, in his first book, identified five primary love languages - words of affirmation, physical touch, quality time, acts of service, and gifts. These love languages are the same for all ages, but there are different ways to "speak" them at different points. If you've found your child's primary love language, it will remain the same (assuming you evaluated it correctly) when they become a teenager, but they likely won't respond to the same things and you will need to learn how to continue to speak this language effectively. Teenagers are notorious for being moody, temperamental, and even rebellious, sometimes without any apparent explanation to their parents. As is the premise for his other books, Gary Chapman explains that one of the main reasons for this is teens often do not feel loved - despite parents who may be very loving - because that love is not being communicated effectively in a way which speaks to the teenager. Finding your teenagers primary (and secondary) love language enables parents to be sensitive to their changing needs and ensure they feel loved and accepted. This book discusses contemporary teens and the importance of parental love before moving on to individual chapters covering each love language. After this is a chapter designed to help you identify your teen's love language. Subsequent chapters deal with unresolved problems of anger, independence, responsibility (and discipline), loving in spite of failure, and help for single parents or blended families. If you have (or will soon have!) teenagers in your house, this book will go a long way in fostering understanding and love in your relationship(s). 259 pgs. - Melissa

    Multiplication facts should be committed to memory for immediate recall during timed tests and to succeed at higher math levels. There are enough new concepts to assimilate at the high school level without being hindered by inadequate retention of the basic math facts. These will also be used continuously in real-life applications. Whether a student is just beginning to learn the multiplication facts or needs a little more help to totally master them, this book can help.

    Similar to Two Plus Two is Not Five (for addition and subtraction), this volume presents multiplication facts incrementally, using mastery strategies. As in that book, strategies are meant to bridge the way between counting and memorization, not as a substitute for instant recall. There are 33 sets of strategy introductions, followed by practice, review, and cumulative review pages – a total of 148 reproducible pages in all. The Guide to Introducing the Facts supplies helpful terminology and instructions for each introduction. Facts are not introduced in order; they are introduced by strategy, with easier strategies (like doubles) near the beginning. You will probably want to use a set of multiplication flash cards for daily drill and practice of presented facts to use in tandem with this book. The Guide lists facts to add to your flash card drill with each introduction. As facts are presented, students can check them off on their Record-Keeping Checklists. As they are mastered, they can be circled on the Math Facts Baseline Recorder. This sheet of the 81 multiplication facts can also be used for remedial students as a starting point for instruction. Practice pages of facts contain both vertical and horizontal format problems and sometimes include a few addition and/or subtraction facts for review. This keeps children on their toes so they remember to look at the sign of a problem before working. There are also cumulative review pages that review all facts introduced to that point. Some of these (listed in introduction) are meant to be used for testing and timed drills to determine mastery. Children should only answer the ones they know from memory, without counting; others should be left blank. Other Review pages are used for reinforcement of particular strategies and math facts. Many of these are concentrated toward the back of the book as a final review. You will probably use these only if your child has not demonstrated mastery of those facts yet. The pages are easy on the eye; very clean and clear-looking with problems nicely spaced. This one looks like a good bet for nailing those multiplication facts once and for all.
