    Paul Janeczko wrote this book that shares tons of information about all kinds of codes: how to make them, how to break them, and the place they have in history. First the book gives a general history of codes and shows how and why they were developed. It points out "codes" that people see everyday like zip codes and street signs. Then the book details all sorts of codes, ciphers, and secret writing. While each type of code is described, the book also tells you how to make your own codes in that format, how to break codes in that format, and gives interesting facts about how that type of code has been used in history. A few of the many codes and ciphers covered include Pig Latin, Turkish Irish, Caesar Cipher, Morse Code, Greek Square Cipher, Rail Fence Cipher, and Route Transposition Cipher. Concealment techniques are also included like the Null Cipher, Word Grille, Dot Cipher, and invisible inks. Sometimes while describing different kinds of codes, the book will have an example code that readers have to try to break. The answers to all these code puzzles are included in the back of the book. With easy to read and understand explanations of a large variety of codes and ciphers, this book not only shows readers how to become masters of making and breaking codes, it also shows them the great impact codes have had on the history of the world. 136 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Greek often seems more intimidating than Latin because of its unique alphabet. Most of us only come across those funny little symbols in higher-level math and science! This ingenious book, however, equates learning the Greek alphabet to learning a top-secret code needed to solve a robbery case. A priceless ancient Greek urn has been stolen, and it's up to the reader to learn the Greek alphabet to decode clues from the eyewitnesses. There are eight units in the book, which are estimated to take eight weeks to complete if you study Greek 3-4 times per week. Of course, you could complete the book in less time or spend more time on it, depending on the ages and abilities of the students participating. Unit 1 introduces the Greek alphabet and a pronunciation guide. Units 2-5 each introduce six new letters in the Greek alphabet while reviewing previously learned ones. Units 6 and 7 cover consonant blends, vowels and diphthongs and Unit 8 is comprehensive review. The Greek letters are reinforced through a variety of exercises, including matching, solving simple "cyphers" that equate to English words, handwriting practice with the Greek letters, writing Greek words and saying them aloud, and word puzzles. The author also recommends beginning each session by singing the Greek Alphabet Song together, which can be downloaded from the publisher's website. Although the pages seem to be intended as consumables, they are glossy, full-color and not reproducible. Because of this, you will either need a book for each student, or have them write on a separate sheet of paper. Reference charts, extra writing practice sheets, code-making worksheets and a Greek Alphabet Code Cracker Cypher Wheel to assemble are found at the back of the book, with answers to all activities. Additional goodies designed to accompany the book are provided at www.classicalacademicpress.com/greekcode along with the alphabet song mentioned above. Whether you are looking to begin Greek for Children, or are just "testing the waters" to see if you are interested, you can't beat this introduction for the excitement of catching the thieves! 96 pgs, pb. - Jess
