    When Myles Falworth was eight years old, a series of events changes his life forever. Ultimately culminating with his father being charged with treason, the Falworth name is disgraced. Will Myles succeed in restoring honor to the family name? Much depends on his training for knighthood. This classic coming of age tale, first published in 1892, continues to be a favorite among all as it clearly teaches many virtuous qualities such as chivalry, courage, loyalty, steadfastness, and generosity. ~ Enh

    Linda Hobar, the author of this world history series, states in the beginning of this book, "I believe history is the story of God revealing Himself to mankind and that He did it most perfectly through the person of Jesus Christ…the "mystery" is the gospel of Jesus Christ." What a refreshing and different view from most world history curriculums! Those looking for a world history program that aligns the stories of mankind with the living story of God will truly appreciate this Bible-centered approach to the history of the world. Picking up where Volume 1 leaves off, this volume begins with the Pentecost and the first followers of Jesus (including Paul) around 29 A.D and chronologically continues through the early church and moves into the Middle Ages, covering the years through about 1456 A.D. The format of this book is very similar to that of the first volume; however, there are some small differences. Firstly, there are fewer lessons (84 as opposed to 108), but these lessons are slightly longer, offering more information on a given topic. Lessons generally take the form of real-life biographies, sharing the stories of men and women who changed the world while simultaneously showing the relationship between God and the world during that period. Another new feature is the bolding of key words to aid students in finding the information again later for activity or vocabulary purposes. As in the first book, this volume includes pretests to be given at the beginning of each week, end of the week reviews, memory card suggestions, bi-weekly quizzes, quarterly worksheets, and two semester tests. Memory cards are fact cards that students create for each lesson, capturing the main points and dates on an easy to review flashcard. The end of the week reviews continue to hold timeline and mapping exercises, providing students with helpful visuals of when important figures lived and where places studied are located. This volume also contains even more activities following each lesson than the first volume. This is simply to provide you with more choices, not to overwhelm you with feeling like you should do them all! These activities are generally categorized into younger, middle, and older student activities in order to accommodate the curriculum to a wider spread of grade levels, with the youngest comprised of many hands-on activities to help them experience history, middle activities a combination of hands-on exercises with research, and the older ideas centering on research, encouraging students to learn more and dig deeper into the people and lessons from history. The activities and memory cards, as well as the weekly and quarterly reviews and tests, are meant to ensure long-term retention of the key events and people throughout history, as opposed to the short term memory capacity we often hold history (and other subjects!) lessons in. The back of this hefty 700-page book contains the outline maps for the lessons, additional fun supplemental activities, suggestions of books and resources for further study of many of the topics, a chart of materials needed for the activities found in each lesson, and a full answer key. The fascinating journey across the continents continues as students discover who lived when and the way God worked His plan throughout this period of history. ~ Steph

    You probably wouldn't guess it by the way I dress, but I love fashion, especially fashion history. If you can picture a cross between a pop-up book, paper dolls and fashion history, that's what you get here. On each spread, there's a fold-out panel of general historical information and an overview of men's, women's and children's costumes for that era. The majority of the spread is filled with an illustrated family, about the size of your average paper dolls. Each member of the family is wearing a paper flap costume typical of what you might see for that period in history, often in several layers, from the outerwear to the underwear (the last layer is at page level and nobody is left naked – they're all wearing underpants). You can literally flip up the clothing flaps and read a few sentences printed on the underside to find out more about each article of clothing. For example, the Roman man wears three layers; the toga praetexta, the tunica exteriorum, and the tunica subucula. The Roman woman wears a palla, a stola and a subucula as well. The children's clothes are usually simpler, and are often modified examples of the adults' clothing. Small vignettes around the borders of the page highlight shoes, jewelry, hairstyles and accessories. This is one of those books you wish was hundreds of pages long, but unfortunately there are only 13 spreads, featuring the Roman empire, the Middle Ages, the 15th century, the 16th century, 17th century, 18th century, 19th century, 1901-1920, 1920's, 1930's, 1940's-1950's, and 1960's. I could have literally spent a couple of hours with this book, it's so packed with details, flaps and neat little tidbits! – Jess

     The true story of American independence will never grow old, as long as their remains a hunger for freedom in the souls of men...and this book tells that story well. Students of U.S. history will enjoy this illustrated book, for it tells the story of the long struggle for American independence and liberty in a concise and engaging manner. Beginning with some of the early efforts towards independence, such as the opposition to the stamp tax by men such as Patrick Henry, as well as the famous Boston Tea Party rebellion, the text proceeds to chronicle many of the major events that led the colonists to the place where they were willing to establish their own sovereign nation. This volume would be an excellent reference tool or unit study for middle school or junior-high level students who are studying the War for American Independence. 82 pgs, pb. ~ Mike
