    Teaching our children how to handle money is often “caught and not taught,” yet, how many of us learned our own personal money skills in the school of “hard knocks?”

    As parents, we want to set a good example of money management, but what if our ideas of money management are just not clicking with our child (or spouse!). Have you ever considered that you may have different money personalities? In the grand scheme of things, money is simply a tool, a means to an end, and that end is quality relationships with our spouse, children and the world around us. Delving into the heart of money relationships—the deep seated assumptions and beliefs that each of us bring to the money decisions we make—the authors expand on the five types of money personalities: saver, spender, risk taker, security seeker, and flyer, to help us identify our unique money personalities. Then the book moves on to assess the money personalities of our children through a designated assessment link and code. With this foundational understanding, the authors provide practical advice and encouragement for teaching our children basic money skills. The following sections are divided into 3 age groupings: 5-12 years, 13-17 years and 18 and beyond, with insights and ideas specific to the five money personalities. Also included are parental “button pushers” to be aware of in order to prevent us from over reacting and derailing these important conversations. A great tool to understand how different children approach and deal with money that would be a great go-along for parents whose children are working through the Dave Ramsey Foundations in Personal Finance course or the Money Matters for Kids/Teens series. 257 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    Finally, a timeline created specifically for the high school student! Recognizing that most commercially available timelines are geared toward younger children and offer loads of space for pictures/illustrations but little space for textual information, Janice Campbell has created a timeline perfect for older students.

    How is this timeline different? First the main part of the timeline consists of a two-page spread with a five column grid on each page. Each of the columns represents one decade (AD) or one century (BC), meaning that each two page spread equals either one century (AD) or one millennium (BC). Below each grid section is a set of short lines. These lines are designed to record brief items of interest such as a discovery or battle. The author has included suggestions for using a special mark for the event as well as developing a color-coding system for quick referencing. Other differences include a note section at the bottom of each two page spread; special notes section and helpful suggestions for using 3x5 index cards to expand the timeline information.

    Timeline begins at 6,000 BC and ends with 2200 AD. Also included is a blank TimeFrame page for a special topic or period study or to photocopy to expand a specific time period. While sharing a variety of ideas for how to use the TimeFrame Timeline, creative juices will flow and it will quickly become a personal reflection of your teen's interests and personality. pb., spiral. ~ Deanne

    An excellent resource! This book was designed especially for students before they begin high school. The subtitle is "Stuff You Need to Know, and Mistakes You Need to Stop Making, Before You Step Foot into High School." It's an awesome book designed to ensure students know some relatively basic facts before they hit high school. For example, they should know the order of the planets, most of the more familiar presidents (although if they want to learn them all, they can do that here too), a basic timeline of world and U.S. events, how to find the diameter, radius and circumference of a circle, how to make subjects and verbs agree in sentences, at least five major artists and musicians, and the most famous works of some of the most famous authors in history. It sounds like a lot of information - and it is - but this book is in no way overwhelming. It is very non-threatening, with only about 70 pages including the introduction and other informational pages. The size isn't the only thing that is non-threatening -the text is written in very personable, often entertaining style from an author who doesn't want to bore students or surround them with long definitions, but really wants them to learn the basics to create a good foundation for their more advanced schooling. He speaks not in a know-it-all tone, but in a this-is-great-stuff-to-know manner. The book starts at the very broadest of issues, the universe, and works its way down to the smaller things like individual topics and famous people. Each topic is usually presented on a two-page spread, although some (like World History) take up a little more space. Here is a sampling of the spread and type of knowledge given on each topic, using the universe pages as an example. A column on the left side of the pages gives a brief overview to what we can know about the universe, and then we move on to "stuff you should know about your universe." This section provides a basic yet in depth summary of the universe, with important terms in bold. These bolded terms are Earth, the Solar System, star, galaxy, Milky Way, cluster, and light year. Enough information is given to students about each of them to give them a basic knowledge and understanding, sufficient but not enough to write a research paper about. The right hand page covers constellations, good terms to know such as black holes, nebula, and supernova, and finally a small section titled "Don't Make These Mistakes Anymore!" which tells students the difference between astronomy and astrology, what exactly a light year is (it is not a measure of time, but a distance), that the Earth and other planets revolve around the sun, which moves with the entire galaxy as it turns and moves through space, and what exactly an astronomical unit is. This same format (although it varies by topic) is used throughout the book to provide students with an excellent base for further learning. I know this is kind of a long list, but I want you to be able to see how complete this book actually is, so here is the table of contents: the Universe, the Solar System, Earth, Continents and Oceans, Countries and Cities, Islands and Mountains, Lakes and Rivers, U.S. Geography, Canadian Geography, World History, American History, U.S. Presidents, Canadian History, Math, Science, Writing and Grammar, Art and Music History, Literature, Major Religions, Languages, People, and Life and Miscellaneous. I think every pre-highschooler should definitely have access to and read a copy of this book, as well as any high school student or even beyond who would enjoy keeping a copy of the basics around.

    Take music history beyond the dry textbook to a fun worksheet! Each of the 27 reproducible worksheets in the book has a reading about a famous composer on one side, then quiz questions on the flipside with codes, word searches, and more. I think this would be fun for a family to do together as a mini unit study. Have a parent or older sibling read the biography to the younger students, then have each student fill out a copy of the work sheet. Solutions are included. 64 pgs, sc. – Laura
