    A wise addition for any family: a "Morning Time" when the family comes together to focus on and recite Truth. Truth can't be dumped into our children (or us) once a week or at random intervals. Daily review will solidify and invest truth in each member of your family. How do you execute that as a routine? Here is the beauty of this Cindy Rollins handbook: a simple, concisely organized plan to have a daily Morning Time. You'll find advice in the form of tips and lists on memorizing Scripture as well as poetry and hymns. Her conversational tone and examples help you learn from this experienced home teacher. 112 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

      Accompany your Latin courses, or even a holiday dinner, with 13 Christmas songs sung in Latin (well, 2 are instrumentals.) Some of the songs are 1,500 years old! Songs include: Hodie Christus Natus Est, Veni Veni Emmanuel, Puer Natus in Bethlehem, Resonet in Laudibus, Jesu Redemptor Omnium, Corde Natus ex Parentis, What Child is This? (instrumental), Creator Alme Siderum, Adeste Fideles, In Dulci Jubilo, Flos de Radice Jesse, and Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence (instrumental.) A lovely female voice is accompanied by a harp, keyboard, violin, psaltery and sometimes other voices. The result is calm and soothing. You could certainly have this playing in the background and have a conversation. An insert includes the lyrics in Latin and English. From Classical Academic Press, ~ Sara

    Perhaps you think you know what “classical” education is all about. It doesn’t take much “googling” to come up with the trivium and a few key authors. However, Leigh Bortins proves that there can be many ways to skin the proverbial cat. In this highly readable book she tells us what is wrong with American education, what our model and ideals should be and then, subject-by-subject she outlines a plan. It’s a workable plan, not necessarily easy to implement (it will take diligence and consistency) but definitely do-able. One can easily see both the potential of her methodology and the means by which it is accomplished. Classical Conversations (the community-based, one-day-a-week, classical homeschooling option the author co-founded) is attracting a surprising number of homeschoolers eager to implement her ideas. In this book she tells us how to incorporate classical study into daily routines involving the entire family. Maybe you need to be convinced that this is the direction you want to go. Maybe you need a road map to help take you there. Maybe you just want to know that others are following a similar path. It’s in here! 238 pgs, pb. Janice

    Daily lessons copying scripture (KJV; selections correlate to Christian Studies I), maxims, Greek Myths and more will take about 15 minutes. Horizontal format gives the students longer practice lines and a spiral binding at the top. Dotted half-lines are on only 1cm, so it does require fairly small handwriting. Masters are in the back. 140pp

    Tea parties have always been a hit at our house. Janine and Stevie would always beg to have a tea party, so we would scrounge together snack items, brew some special "spice tea," and gather around the plastic dishes to enjoy some inane conversation. We even had special "tea party names," which we used. Well, if tea parties are popular at your house as well, your young party-givers will enjoy this! This book covers it all - from invitations, decorations, refreshments, games and activities, crafts, and party favors for a handful of themed and "classic" tea parties to proper tea manners for kids, hostess tips, recipes, and plenty of other useful information! Use these ideas "with all the trimmings" for a knock-out birthday tea party, or pick and choose ideas for a more informal afternoon snack time tea party. The book is copiously illustrated with full-color, cute illustrations, and little extra bits of information about tea, tea parties, and history are thrown in as well. With so many unique and "grown-up" ideas here, I'm definitely going to have to invest in this one with Janine and Stevie - I'm sure they wouldn't mind a good tea party! - Jess

    Bede is known as the "Father of English History." He assembled facts about the history of the Church in Britain, and this provides the first account of Anglo-Saxon England ever written. Leo Sherley-Price translated the book from Latin, and it is surprisingly easy to read and understandable, especially considering it was written in AD 731. The book begins with Caesar's invasion in the first century BC and goes on to tell about all the people and events that led to the development of government and mainstream conversion to Christianity. The book shares about the many men and women who made an impact during the time period and describes the customs and lives of ordinary people. This great edition also includes Bede's Letter to Egbert, which denounces false monasteries, and The Death of Bede, which is an interesting eyewitness account from a monk. Notes are included to describe the people and terms that average readers may be unfamiliar with. 398 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
