    Mr. Mittens, Ginger, Pip Squeak, Duchess, Sassy, and Tom Cat may all look adorable and innocent – but at least one of them is not! It’s up to you to find out who swallowed the fish, or ate the bird, or spilled the coffee, or committed one of the other unmentionable cat crimes! Put your deductive reasoning skills to the test. The game includes a game board with spaces for all six cats to sit. Forty challenge cards, rated beginner to expert, give clues to where specific cats were when the crime occurred. It’s up to you to arrange the cats around the board and identify the feline felon. Good luck, detective! ~ Megan

    Birds, bugs, and bats – if it flies, it's explored in this fascinating introduction to zoology! The first portion of the book focuses on birds and their unique characteristics. Kids will learn bird anatomy, how they are able to fly, why they build nests, how they raise their young, and more. They'll also learn to identify the birds they see every day and do activities that explore the habits and preferences of different species of birds. Students will learn about bats, some of the most useful and wonderful flying creatures in the world. As they study the physical characteristics and lifestyle of the bat, they'll gain a new appreciation for these creatures. Finally, kids will get up close and personal to the insect world. They'll learn how to identify and classify the many different types of bugs they see, and they'll even get to design their own experiments with different insect species. Kids will get the opportunity to keep their own field journals as they are encouraged to be their own scientist as they observe and understand the world around them.

    What do crows, peacocks, and bird nest soup have in common? They're just a few of the fun and fascinating things that your student will WANT to write about. Within its 24 lessons (a year's worth) it covers TWSS Units 1-7 (taking notes, summarizing narrative stories, writing from pictures, mini-research report, and creative writing) and several stylististic elements. Teacher prep is non-existent – you only need to read through the lessons with your student and be prepared to be "wowed" by their writing (and, of course, do a little evaluating). Although your student will want to make a final portfolio copy of their writing assignments, all the preliminary work – outlines, brainstorming charts, along with checklists – are provided in the consumable, 159-page spiral-bound text. Appendices include: banned words & prepositions and substitutes, -ly words. The purchaser may download an optional accompanying teacher e-book from the publisher's website. ~ Janice

    How well do you know your birds? In this game, the fewer clues you need to figure out the type of bird, the more points you'll score. The game is composed of 300 cards (at three different levels), with each card showing a photograph of the bird on one side and five clues and the name of the bird on the other. One player acts as the reader and reads the first clue to the player on their left, who is the answerer. If the answerer can name the bird after the first clue, they receive 5 points, if they need two clues, they get 4 points, etc, down to 0 points if they can't identify it. Then they become the new reader and play passes around the table. Whoever has the most points after eight rounds wins. For 2+ players.

    Sudoku puzzles have exploded in popularity in recent years, and this product allows you to enjoy the logical puzzles with colors instead of numbers. Instead of using numbers from 1-9, Colorku uses nine differently colored wooden marbles on a large wooden board. The high-quality wood board measures 13.5" x 13.5" and is divided into nine rows, nine columns, and nine 3 x 3 squares. It has 81 wood marbles in 9 vibrant colors. The board and marbles are covered with a plastic tray that holds the balls on the board when storing, and flips over to serve as a ball holder while playing. The board comes with 100 different puzzle cards that come in four different difficulty levels and tell players where to place the first few marbles. The solution to each puzzle is achieved when the player ends up having one and only one of every color ball in each of the nine rows, columns, and 3 x 3 squares. Solutions are included. There's even a color conversion card that shows you how to alter any Sudoku puzzle from any book or news-paper and solve it using your Colorku board. Think the 100 puzzle cards that come with the game won't be enough? Luckily, there are a few Expansion Packs, which offer additional puzzle cards at a variety of levels. Each pack offers 100 puzzles with solutions. The Beginner Puzzles are fairly simple, the All Level Puzzles offer puzzles for four different difficulty levels, and the Advanced Puzzles will drive you crazy. The durable wooden game and fun yet challenging puzzles will be enjoyed by new and old Sudoku fans alike. ~Rachel

    That proverbial talk about the “birds and the bees.” You know you need to do it. Teaching your children about God’s plan for sex and all the male/female interaction that leads up to it is part of what it means to bring up a child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. And you want to do it – sort of. It’s just that it’s so very uncomfortable – and you don’t know what to say – and there might be questions asked that make you ashamed or guilty. . .  Dennis and Barbara Rainey (parents of six) of Family Life Ministries know you need “a plan” and they’ve provided a lovely one – a getaway weekend kit complete with instructions for you, guidelines for what to do, excellent speakers to get the difficult words out in the open by offering interesting audio sessions, an engaging format, a solid study of Biblical values, and enjoyable scripture songs.

      The goal of this program is to encourage and empower parents to discuss the difficult topics of intimacy, sexual behavior, and personal feelings that are facing their children as they enter the preteen years. To give parents the tools they need to both challenge their sons and daughters as they enter the pathway to Christian adulthood as well as provide the foundation for future discussions and sharing. To build a mentoring relationship with your children that continues past the weekend and into all the years leading up to adulthood.

      Preteen? Isn’t that jumping the gun a bit for the birds and the bees? Not in today’s culture. It’s literally everywhere around us – and now in ways unimagined by all previous generations. This program is designed to set the stage for a close parent/child relationship as the child moves into this period. Topics are handled biblically, carefully, and tastefully. Some topics are left optional for the parent.

      A weekend getaway. That’s the general setting. One child – with the parent all to himself (boys with fathers; girls with mothers) – doing an activity of his choice that he loves to do and spending time listening to “talks” and working through study material together. It’s a wonderful affirmation that the love of the parent can transcend the upcoming changes that the child will be experiencing.

      There are five audio sessions and one optional session: 1) the adolescent experience, 2) how to handle peer pressure, 3) changes that are ahead (God’s design for sex), 4) purity (protecting sexual innocence), and 5) dating (properly engaging with the opposite sex). The optional session covers really delicate issues (masturbation, pornography, and same-sex attraction) and can be inserted after the fourth session and before the fifth if the parent chooses,

      The Getaway Kit provides the necessary framework: a tour guide for the parent, travel journal for the preteen including 25 follow-up devotions, CDs containing 5 sessions, scripture memory songs and downloadable MP3s of all sessions.

      The Tour Guide is for the parent – basically a leader’s guide for this very focused Bible study. This little manual includes sections on planning the getaway, an itinerary for the weekend, a suggested schedule, preparation checklists (and needed supplies), guidelines for writing a note to your son/daughter, and very specific suggestions for praying for your son/daughter. Also included is a page-for-page reproduction of the Travel Journal (accent color rather than full color) so you can work through it with your son/daughter.

      The Travel Journal is for your son/daughter and is designed as a companion for the experiences of the weekend. With a travel theme and an engaging appearance, it provides a place to write notes (from the talks), thoughts, and answers to questions as well as the guidelines for godly Christian living provided by this study material. There are 25 follow-up devotions that continue with a similar theme and help strengthen the biblical core of the young adult’s understanding of the various issues. This is a nicely done keepsake book with a hardcover, full-color graphics, and an elastic strap for place-keeping.

      The CD Set provides the core material for the heart of the weekend and the program. Eight CDs provide the weekend talk sessions. These sessions feature scripture memory songs, dramatic vignettes, humorous features, real-life stories from teens and adults, and lots of teaching from parents and experts that have “been there, done that.” Songs are CCM-type of music with understandable lyrics, singable melodies, and full instrumentation backup.

      Having “that” talk with your children may never be entirely comfortable, but this kit gives you a plan; the certainty of godly, biblical content; and the promise of enjoyable memories.

    It all looks just like I remember it! Four trees full of small, stemmed cherries, bucket spots for picked cherries, and a spinner marked with 1, 2, 3, or 4 cherries plus a cherry-snatching bird and dog, and an upset bucket. A child doesn't even need to be able to count to ten to play this adorable "first" game. Play is simple and quick (about 15-30 minutes); just spin and follow the pictures, adding cherries from the tree to the bucket or putting them from the bucket back onto the tree. First one to get all his tree's cherries into his bucket wins. Three generations and counting in our family – I wonder how many future generations will play? For 2-4 Players.

    Children love to learn by reading or listening to stories. This is a fictional account of Peter Rabbit and the birds in Old Orchard. While it is an enjoyable tale, accurate accounts of the different birds (Jenny Wren, the Blackbird family, Carol the Meadowlark, and Spooky the Screech Owl, to name a few) are given pertaining to coloring, habitats, and habits. Black and white illustrations of many of the different birds are included throughout the story. Children will develop not only knowledge and a love of birds, but also a love for nature, including the importance of conservation and preservation of our precious resources. ~ Megan

    Children are never too young for nature studies or simply just checking things out in a way that only kids can. Whether watching the birds of the air or a radical game of good guys and bad guys, sturdy binoculars are a must-have. Designed for a perfect fit, they offer enlarged eyepieces (no eyestrain!), focus free binoculars, 2x magnification, rubberized edges, and an easy-carry breakaway strap. While the magnification is slightly less than our other child-friendly option #005397, these are a bit heavier duty for preschoolers, provide soft, rubber cushioning around the eyes to allow for longer and more comfortable viewing and "easy grip" sides. Multi-colored. ~Deanne

    People don't like most mice, but then again Stuart Little isn't like most mice. He was born to a family of humans in New York City. Although his family loves him very much despite his somewhat obvious mouse appearance, life is a little difficult for Stuart. Simple things like brushing your teeth and turning on lights are quite the process for Stuart. He is a very good natured mouse and doesn't mind the trouble, but not surprisingly he has many adventures. His most dangerous adventure begins when his good bird friend, Margalo, turns up missing. Stuart sets off on his own for the first time in his life, determined to find his friend. 144 pgs, pb. By E.B. White; illustrated by Garth Williams.

    What study of the states would be complete without a little coloring? Well, it's not really an essential, but it can reinforce the learning. Attractive blackline coloring pages are brimming with information about each of the 50 states, educating as they are colored. Which state is the Sunflower State? The Land of Opportunity? Which state's motto is "Ever Upward"? Informative captions provide each state's nickname, motto, flower, bird, tree, capital, principal rivers and mountains, notable attractions, and other special information.

    Accurate outline drawings of each state are prominent, with a small inset map of the United States showing its location (by shading). Some details, like mountains, rivers, and lakes, appear on the state. The capital's location is starred, but no printed names appear - so you can have your children do a little research and mapwork for extra benefit. This also makes the book usable as a reproducible map source. Surrounding the state are other blackline figures of the state bird, flower, related plant and animal life, and other significant features (New York, for example, includes the Statue of Liberty). Now your students can color their way to U.S. geographic literacy!
