    These workbooks were designed to be an introduction to the Editor in Chief series. Students first review the rules of grammar and mechanics by answering multiple-choice questions. They then learn to apply these rules by editing stories in a variety of formats. Units cover capitalization, punctuation, run-ons and fragments, dialogue, friendly letters, grammar, usage, and spelling. The last unit combines different types of errors into single exercises to review all of the skills simultaneously. The original Editor in Chief Beginning level will be changing to Beginning 2, and the publishers have created a "pre-quel" for 2nd/3rd grade. ~ Rachel S.

    First published in 1809, this book met with sweeping success throughout all of Europe. Authored by Jane Porter, this book dynamically depicts the rebellion of the Scots against the tyrannical King Edward in 1296-1305. The host of colorful characters, both good and bad, enhances the dramatic story. The rebellion is led by the ever-so gallant Sir William Wallace, the epitome of a heroic, chivalrous knight. Although not written as a historical account, the book nevertheless is a very genuine fictional account of the adventures of Wallace as he and his followers fight to restore Robert the Bruce to the throne of Scotland, thus restoring peace to their homeland. Although the suggested reading level begins at sixth grade, younger children will likely embrace the story as a read-aloud as well. 504 pages.

    Suppose you were to attend a symposium; each contributor one of the finest minds in the modern Christendom; each presenting a paper detailing the impact of thinkers on civilizationââ‚™s collective worldview through various periods in history. And further suppose that each of these presenters also emphasized the majesty and lordship of God and His sovereignty in His redemptive purposes. Such a marvelous collection of ââ‚Å"speechesâ₝ (a.k.a. essays) make up the core of this book. From the ancient Greeks and biblical writers through each of the ââ‚Å"periodsâ₝ ââ‚" Medieval, Renaissance, Reformation, Enlightenment, Modern, and Postmodern ââ‚" each contributor works toward providing an understanding of the flow of western thought. Highly readable, though not necessarily an easy read, these essays explore the ideas that have revolutionized the way in which people thought and acted and provide a history of major worldviews. A number of organizational helps contribute to the understandability of their efforts. Each essay includes a number of sidebar quotes. Additionally, in the upper lefthand sidebar of each set of facing pages thereââ‚™s an essay outline that identifies exactly where you are reading within the structure of the essay. A resource list for further reading and a set of discussion questions conclude each essay. One of my favorite parts of the book is found in the appendices ââ‚" a timeline of the turning points in worldview. Also included in the appendices are a list of recommended resources for exploring worldview, several indices (subjects, personal names, scripture), and a glossary. 424 pgs, pb ~ Janice

    Edmund Burke wrote this classic during the early months of the French Revolution in 1790. Not only did it predict with great accuracy many of the worst excesses of the Revolution, it is today regarded as a classic statement of conservative political thought. In the book he attacks the Revolution's negative attitudes towards institutions like religion and property and makes a strong case for upholding established political customs. An 80 page introduction by Conor Cruise O'Brien examines the political situation in England and Ireland and how it influenced Burke's point of view and also highlights the significance and popularity of the book. 406 pgs, pb.

    Voting hasn't always been conducted in the same way we vote today. Back in the 1700s even, women, Native Americans, and Blacks were not permitted to vote, and the first presidents were not elected under political parties as we know them. Women and civil rights leaders, the 1965 Voting Rights Act, and other things have really changed the face of voting - this book tells how it happened.

    Henry Drummond's message is clear. Love is the greatest thing in the world. It is life's richest experience, and the ultimate statement of our faith. This book includes Drummond's study of the most popular biblical chapter on love, 1 Corinthians 13 and two works from Drummond's collection: Pax Vobiscum, where he explores the importance of rest in a Christian's life, and The Program of Christianity, where he expounds on God's part in the world, what real life is, and how these two thoughts reveal the splendor and glory of Christ. Paperback, 123 pages.

    At just over 1000 pages, this weighty anthology represents a cross-section of Western medieval literature. It begins with the Apocryphal New Testament, ends with the 15th-century French comedy The Worthy Master Pierre Patelin, and has many great works in between. The book is divided into 10 units, each representing a specific literary genre: drama, Romanesque, the Christian tradition, Dante, etc. Over 150 writings are included, ranging from biographical histories to hymns; Arthurian legends to Teutonic lyric poetry. You'll recognize some of the authors and works (Beowulf, Dante's Inferno, Song of Roland), but no doubt you'll find plenty of hidden gems, too. (Please see this title on our website to view the full table of contents.) Editor Charles W. Jones provides insightful introductions to the units and some of the works, helpfully placing them in historical and cultural context. A bibliography and index are included. pb. ~ Lisa

    First published in 1678, this book has been called "the greatest allegory ever written." It is just as relevant today as it was when John Bunyan wrote it from his prison cell. The Pilgrim's Progress is a story every Christian can relate to. From Christian's first stirrings of the Holy Spirit beckoning him to follow Christ, to his final arrival in the Celestial City of God - you will feel as if it is you reliving your spiritual journey. 450 pgs, pb.

    A selection of Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, first in English of the late 14th century and then also in English of the modern day. If you want to read any of the nine tales (Prologue, Knight's Tale, Miller, Wife of Bath, Merchant, Franklin's Tale, Pardoner, Prioress, and Nun's Priest's Tale) in the old English style, the introduction is a guide explaining Chaucer's language, the vowel sounds, spelling consonants, grammar, vocabulary and the like. If, however, modern English is more your style, you will find each tale translated into that, too. Each facing page is the same page of the tale, only it is in modern English. The choice is up to you. ~ Zach

There are five different games and two different levels of play (two different card sets) - or just use the vinyl peel-and-stick plastic body parts and Some Body boards as puzzles to familiarize children with the locations of body parts. Up to four may play. A favorite game of Mark, our science editor!
