    This uniquely challenging game is great for playing solo to build visual/spatial perception skills or for playing in a group to build those skills competitively! Up to four players each receive a square transparent "Doodle sheet," a dry erase marker, an eraser and a fish stencil. Players all look at a full-color, illustrated Quest Card, which details some sort of drawing challenge to complete, whether finding a path for a little fish to escape from the mouth of a big fish, drawing fish in open areas of the sea, or finishing a picture. Players look at the Quest Card, then complete the challenge on their clear Doodle Sheet. When all of the players have drawn the assignment, players take turns laying their Doodle sheet over the Quest card to see if they drew their fish or lines in the right places. Points are awarded based on how well each player's drawing fits with the Quest card. Two levels of challenges on the 18 double-sided Challenge cards make this game perfect for any age. I can only hope they come out with Quest Card expansions! – Jess

In Level 1, players combine roots to form English words and practice dictionary skills. In level 2, dictionary skills are improved as players try to stump their opponents. Level 3 is played like Rummy using three root combinations to further expand vocabulary and comprehension. The result of all this fun? Mastering 42 Greek and Latin roots, over 190 vocabulary words learned, and the ability to at least partially decipher over 2,000 words!

    I have very fond memories of playing this computer game as a child, so I was excited to take a look at this new and updated edition. I wasn't disappointed, as this edition is even more fun and exciting than the original. It's also a ton more educational than it used to be as well. For those who aren't familiar, this is a game where players fill a wagon with people and supplies and then head West on the historic Oregon Trail. Like real people who traveled the trail, you run into problems like food and water shortages, broken wagon parts, flooded rivers, illness and injuries, stolen supplies, bad weather, getting lost, and more. The game is more realistic than is used to be, as players get more choices on supplies to bring and even different wagon styles. Besides being able to hunt like the original game (with better graphics), players can also fish and forage for food, which is a lot of fun. In this edition, players can select various characters, and they'll share historic facts in a storytelling manner, like you're chatting with pioneers as they share their hopes, fears, and adventures. Another great addition is a storytelling time with Captain Jed Freedman. These are basically mini-movies of Captain Jed sharing true stories around the campfire at night. With all these things combined, I was impressed with the amount of history lessons contained in the game. They break up the daily traveling and trials in a realistic manner as players cross plains, ford rivers, and climb mountains. Students can keep track of their adventures in a trip diary, which can even be printed out at the end of the trip (hopefully when the entire wagon has reached Oregon and not when the last member has died from dysentery). More educational, multicultural, and realistic than past versions, this is the perfect supplement for history studies on this period. But honestly, your children will probably want to play just for the fun of it. A staple of many childhoods, this game has only gotten better with time. System requirements: Windows: 98/2000/ME/XP; Macintosh OS 8.6/9.2/X. ~ Rachel

    Some of the highlights of this original Busy Bible are lifting the numbered flaps of the earth to see each day's creations, Joseph's coat of many colors, helping Ruth gather grain, unzipping the great fish to find Jonah, setting up a nativity scene, and playing the Good Samaritan. When children are finished playing, they can Velcro the book shut and place it back in its clear carrying case, which features a snap close and a handle for easy transport.

    Rarely has a book appealed more to me at first glance. Remaining uncluttered, the concept of "playing with words" is evident in the colorful, graphic font manipulations (lines of type that sway), the cute illustrations, and the lists wonderful, whimsical, but never wayward words. This is a book about choosing the right word when you write. I use the word "appealing" quite a bit, so I thought I would look through the lists in this book and find a new one. I quickly discovered that this little diction worktext did not include "appealing" in any of its lists (or at least not that I could find). That means that I could put it in a "my words" section on one of the list. Would it best go on the Cheerful Clown Fish page or the Exuberant Sea Otter page or perhaps under the Ways to Describe Appearance or the Ways of Speaking list?

    Confused yet? This not-quite-a-vocabulary program, not-quite-a-thesaurus – it's all about discovering just the right word to use when writing. It features structured word lists organized around Character Traits, Ways to Describe, and Ways to Move with a few miscellaneous lists thrown in for good measure. Each list contains nouns, adjectives, adverbs, and verbs. Students are encouraged to playfully interact with these lists with the goal of acquiring quality word choices to incorporate into their writing. Using games and family activities to become familiar with the layout and content of the book, students can then use it independently as they endeavor to interject more definitive word selections into their compositions. Interspersed throughout the book are "Quotes to Inspire Your Writing" taken from classic literature as well as biblical quotes designed to underscore whatever topic is the focus of that page's lists.

    The suggested grade levels for this product indicate it should be used by emerging writers – those who need to find exactly the right word – as they practice their writing skills. Such a student might scan the Generous Manatee list looking for "ly" words (abundantly, bounteously, copiously), or strong adjectives (exorbitant, magnanimous, plenteous) or verbs (showered, bestowed) and feel quite empowered by the choices. However, I also think much younger children (upper elementary) could benefit from this book – becoming familiar with the lists, playing around with the words, etc. I can also easily imagine using this book myself as I seek alternatives to my overused word choices.

    At less than 100 pages, one might think this spiral-bound volume by Loranna Schwaeofer published by IEW is a bit pricey. Although it is reproducible for one homeschooling family or classroom, some of the colorful charm will be lost. Also, each student may want to personalize his own well-worn copy. The fact is, I know of nothing else quite like it – an opportunity to build one's vocabulary, a tool for strengthening one's ability to write with style, and a delightful immersion into the world of words. ~ Janice

    This book covers it all, from the dawn of history right up to the year 2000, for all the major civilizations, all the rulers, and all the events in world history. Pages are filled with clear, interesting accounts of historical events, realistic reconstructions of scenes, and tons of incredible photographs. More than 100 charts and maps are included, allowing you to see exactly where events took place. Besides being an intriguing book to read, this is also your link to world history on the web. After reading about a subject, go online; every link leads you to a website where you can read additional information, watch video clips, play games, see photos, and use other unique website features to experience "virtually" all of world history. I was never much for history, but I wish I had this book when I was younger; these websites look really intriguing. For a study of the ancient world you can get virtual tours of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, a virtual walking tour of Rome and Athens, learn to speak Ancient Greek, write in hieroglyphics, take interactive tours of museums, explore the Valley of Kings in Egypt and learn about the pharaohs buried there and their tombs through photos and panoramic movies, view profiles of famous Romans and Greeks, explore a clickable Roman marketplace, and loads more. Some sights are interactive, where you can, for example, reenact the Battle of Hastings, and some are treasure troves of information, maps, timelines, and diagrams.

    Note: The first 100 or so pages of the book discuss the "Prehistoric World" (starting 4,550 million years ago with the Big Bang and proceeding to 12,000 years ago when the last ice age came to an end). This section outlines evolution and likely contains objectionable material. However, the rest of the sections (Ancient World, Medieval World, Last 500 Years) are more factual and make up for the first. A colorful, captivating book. 416 pages. Stephanie

    How well do you know the elements? If you’re not a pro, don’t worry – these cards will get you there! The basis of this freeform game is a set of 118 element cards. Each has a crowded but clean set of “quick reference” information: name, description, melting / boiling point, atomic number / symbol, etc. But the key to each card is a cartoon illustration of the element’s purpose or identity: cadmium, for example, is used in batteries and is depicted as a battery-powered robot. Each player starts with 5 cards and gameplay progresses through a series of “mini-game” challenges like War, Go Fish, or other classic card games, but with elements – comparing highest atomic value, for example. The first player to 10 collect cards wins. Other card & trivia games can be played with the Periodyx deck as well, but the most interesting aspect is certainly the cards themselves. Once you’re finished with the games, the can be easily integrated into chemistry studies as entertaining flash cards and other reference material! For 2-10 players.

    Set sail with Captain Carl, Barrel Bess, and the rest of the crew. But as the sea gets choppy, will all of them be able to stay on board the ship? This game has two variations of play, one where you must carefully place pirates on the ship and one where all the pirates start on the ship before carefully removing one. Each turn pick up the map tiles to see what pirate you are adding/removing and the type of sea the pirates are sailing across. Slide the sea board that matches your map tile in hopes of keeping all the pirates on. The 4 different sea boards range from calm seas to rough seas with big waves that will rock your ship dramatically. This easy-to-learn game takes from 5-15 minutes and can be played with up to 4 players.

    Little ones can have their own art light show to music. The sealed gel surface gives a feel of fingerpaint without the mess while the bright color of light shines thru their drawing. The light and song art board plays a variety of 12 colors and 6 tunes and has a big button at the bottom for little ones to select what they want. Unit has three play settings: draw with lights and sound, draw with just lights, or draw with no lights or sound for quieter play. Because you're misplacing the gel to "draw" your picture, the gel will start to seep back as you draw, and when you're ready to start your next drawing you simply smooth it out to prepare the surface once again. Built in hand grips make it easy to grasp and carry. Batteries required (3 x AA) and not included.

    This neat little game introduces players to 44 different knots, then tests them on tying these as quickly and accurately as possible to win points. Each playing card in the deck features a different knot, its name and use, and a point value. As soon as a knot card is turned over, players race to be the first to tie the knot and then toss it in the center of the player's circle. If the knot is tied correctly, the player wins the card. If two players "tie" (no pun intended), then the card is replaced in the deck to be used later. The small game includes knot cards, a rule card, two lengths of nylon cord and two small wooden "posts" which is enough for two players. However, you can add more players by supplying more cord and some round sticks or blocks. Several additional cards explain the importance of knots, the strengths of different knots and the parts of a rope. Although knot-tying books abound, the competition, speed, and variety of knots in this game will definitely promote memorization of the knots for practical use - or for the next round of play! - Jess
