    The best books written to entertain young children have to contain text that is somewhat interactive, an interesting storyline, and a problem situation that most children can identify. This book must have had all the ingredients, because it was one of our absolute favorites when we were very young. Throughout the book, Grover (of Sesame Street fame) continues to panic because the title suggests that there is going to be a monster waiting for him at the end of the book. He attempts various constructions to halt the "page-turning" that will inevitably bring the monster closer, and as the pages are turned, the book turns into a bigger and bigger mess. Of course, the end is a surprise for kids, and continues to delight them every time the story is read. If you don't have this Little Golden Book already, I highly recommend it - may yours become as dog-eared as ours! - Jess

    Learn animal noises and more from this fun board book, detailed by the works of Eric Carle! All the barn animals want to play with the spider, but she’s so focused on building her web she doesn’t even notice them. One of my favorite parts about this book is the spider’s web: it’s coated with a special ink so it rises up from the page, just enough for little hands to be able to feel it. A fun little tactile flair to a simple story. 32 pages– Laura

    This title in the Wonders of Creation series dives into the ocean. Through interesting text and an abundance of appealing pictures, students will learn about the ocean and its many facets from a creationist point of view.

    Now updated, a page at the front of the book explains how to use the content with three different learning levels and the page content has color-coded backgrounds for clarity. Text on white background is for 5th/6th, text on light green is for 7th/8th, and text on blue background is for 9th- 11th. An 11"x 24" poster of the ocean's depths is included at the back of the book. Hardcover, 96 pages.

    A study guide is available for The Ocean Book. It corresponds by chapter, summarizing the main ideas and providing short answer questions for students to answer as they read through The Ocean Book. Each chapter of the study guide also includes discussion questions, vocabulary, activities, and projects to complete for better understanding of the concepts. These activities may include memorization of scripture, labeling maps, or reading weather maps. The study guide is a supplement to the text and is very helpful as you strive to comprehend and retain the facts presented.

    If you're looking for a Bible overview that is concise and gets right to the main points, check this one out. Each book is described in 2 to 4 pages, with major sections for Title and Style, GPS, Background and Detail. Title and Style gives an overview of the book, writer, and major points covered. GPS and Background provides information on the geographical, cultural, biographical, and historical references. The Detail section explains a few particulars from each book.

    I found the text to be concise and well written, with interesting information that I had not heard before. For instance, in Matthew, the author Cris Rogers gives insights into the life of Herod the Great, both about his character and his accomplishments. One of the building projects was a man-made mountain, constructed for the sole purpose of putting a lavish palace called Herodium on it. Rogers makes the point about Jesus' statement in Matthew 21:21 "say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,'" Jesus may have been referring to this mountain and the power His disciples would have to bring down the evils of this world and throw them into the pits of hell.

    The book also includes lots of color photographs and small maps that add interest and explain some of the text. At the end of the commentary on each book, additional books are suggested if you want to delve more deeply into the topics discussed.

    I believe it would be well worth the few minutes of time that it takes to read the section on a book of the Bible before doing Bible reading for your own personal Bible study. It would also give you some great insights to wow your students if you are leading a study. 204 pgs, sc. ~ Bob

    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!
