    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.

    When young Manya, or Marie, was only four, she shocked her family by correcting her seven year-old sister's reading. Surprisingly, they worried that she was learning too much for her age, and they sometimes refused to let her near a book! However, it soon became apparent that Marie was not only very intelligent, but she absolutely loved school. In fact, studying became a haven for Marie, who constantly worried about her mother's failing health and her family's slim finances. Upon her graduation from her Polish high school, she knew she wanted to study science at the Sarbonne in Paris, but family obligations and finances put off her dream for several years while she worked hard and saved money. It was at this point in her life she decided she was not going to be "beaten down by persons or events" – a philosophy she took to heart for the rest of her life. A fascinating, inspiring, and well-written biography, it will have readers wanting to cheer Marie on every step of the way as she tirelessly pursues her goals of learning even through hardship and tragedy. The biography covers Marie Curie's life through her death, and closes with a series of discussion questions, a list of recommended references, and a glossary. By Ann E. Steinke, 124 pgs.

    Herein lies the classic true story of Helen Keller, written by Margaret Davidson. Learn about an unbelievably determined girl whose life in this world was a dark, quiet struggle before the day her teacher, Annie Sullivan, joined her. Though Helen and Annie got off to a rough start, it didn't take long for a miracle to happen - Helen finally grasped that everything had a name and a meaning, and she was no longer trapped in her own world. Annie taught her words by signing into her hand, and Helen listened with her palm. When she was twelve years old, she stubbornly decides that despite her challenges, she was going to go to college. Teacher and student spent the next six years in intensive study so that by the time Helen was eighteen she would be prepared. She was - she graduated after four years cum laude! She went on to dedicate her life to helping others. She visited injured soldiers from World War II who had found themselves blind and feeling like they didn't want to go on, and she spoke all over the country and sometimes overseas. She was always up for adventure and had a deep appreciation for the written word and good friends.
