    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

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. The book includes eleven chapters, which include: introduction to the ocean, oceanic research; physical characteristics of the ocean; the composition of the oceans' waters; tides, waves, and currents; weather; harvesting the ocean; marine life; exploring the coral reef; oceanic vessels; and the Genesis flood.

    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.

    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!

    In this third book in the "Wonders of Creation" series, Dr. Morris explains the structure of the earth we live on and presents evidence and theories of rock and landform formation from a young-earth viewpoint. He includes interesting findings from Mt. St. Helens and other recent catastrophic events, discusses various methods of dating the earth, and presents possible scenarios for Creation and the Flood that fit with a literal interpretation of the Biblical account. The well illustrated and easy to read pages make this a good introduction for the younger student or for anyone who has not been exposed to an alternative to the "millions of years" of most geology texts. Grades 5 and up. ~ Reprinted from Christian Home Educators Curriculum Manuals with permission of Cathy Duffy, Grove Publishing.

    An all around guide to creation science, I was impressed with the wide variety of subjects the book touches on. Using a fairly common question to start off each chapter, it then delves into various subjects for detailed answers. For example, the book starts off with the question, "Is There Really a God?" It then talks about how order is always taken as a sign of a creator and how information can't really rise from non information. The questions range from such creation-related topics as the doom of dinosaurs, gap & ruin reconstruction theory, distant starlight, why Christians shouldn't accept billions of years, and hybrid theories. The questions are approached scientifically, biblically, and logically. Clear, relatively concise answers mean that this book is kind of a crash course in Intelligent Design. While there are books that deal specifically with fossils, or specifically with hybrid creation/evolution theories, this is an excellent book to get you in the loop with creation science. Written by Ken Ham and various creation scientists, it is 378 pgs, softcover. A revised and updated edition of the Answers Book. ~ Mark
