Christian content is incorporated into Vol. 4 through related 'Christian Character and Bible Study Lessons.' FIAR Cookbook lessons are also provided for each unit, as are the laminatd story disks. So while this volume seems pricey compared to the rest, it's also more than twice the size of the other volumes and includes more additional content that you don't get packaged with Vol. 1-3. All volumes are spiral-bound with sturdy laminated covers.

    This book is a wonderful celebration of nature and a great read aloud or read alone. It evokes wonderful memories of childhood and strikes a particular chord if you have a love-affair with rivers, woods, or both. What promises to be a lonely, boring summer for Nicky turns into an unexpected summer-long adventure that transforms him into both nature lover ("river rat") and budding artist. The author leaves a mystery to leave you wondering... and has you reveling in each new discovery. It'll have your kids running outside with sketchbook and crayon in hand. The artwork is wonderful - capturing the warmth of summer and the hazy mists of sunrise on the river. This is one you'll be glad to add to your library and read again and again.

    This two-time winner of the Caldecott Medal is a story about Roxaboxen, a real town in the minds of a few children who grew up in Yuma, Arizona. This small patch of desert ground with a few rocks, pieces of broken glass, and discarded crates is brought to life magically by the words and illustrations of Alice McLerran and Barbara Cooney. Roxaboxen is easy to relate to because we all had these imaginary places as children and know how exciting and real they were to us. The character Frances, who was eighty when the story was written, was brought back to Roxaboxen and even helped recount the tale to make this story possible. - Sue

    While most farmers get up at dawn to tend to their animals and land, William A. Bentley got up to photograph early morning dew dripping form leaves and hanging from the delicate strands of a spider web. But most of his life was spent photographing another form of moisture - snow. From the time Bentley was a young boy until his death, he was fascinated with snow. Although most of his friends and neighbors thought he was wasting time, he devoted most of his time and money to studying snowflakes. He experimented over and over again to find a way to photograph snowflakes before they melted or evaporated so that people could appreciate them. It is he who first took note of the snowflakes' unique hexagonal shape, as well as the fact that no two are the same - the reason for which he also discovered. This book of his life and work reads like a storybook, but tells the true story of a man who had a passion for his work. Additional facts about Bentley are shared in the margins to complete the picture of the man now known simply as "Snowflake Bentley." hc.

    Herein lies the classic true story of Helen Keller, written by Margaret Davidson. Learn about an unbelievably determined girl whose life in this world was a dark, quiet struggle before the day her teacher, Annie Sullivan, joined her.

Annie taught her words by signing into her hand, and Helen listened with her palm. When she was twelve years old, she stubbornly decides that despite her challenges, she was going to go to college. Teacher and student spent the next six years in intensive study so that by the time Helen was eighteen she would be prepared. She was - she graduated after four years cum laude! She went on to dedicate her life to helping others. She visited injured soldiers from World War II who had found themselves blind and feeling like they didn't want to go on, and she spoke all over the country and sometimes overseas. She was always up for adventure and had a deep appreciation for the written word and good friends.
