    Written for slightly older students, the format of Volume 4 is slightly different. This volume contains 15 lengthier unit studies that can be stretched to two weeks per book. 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 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.

    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.

    Not to leave out the eager younger children, this volume provides mini Five in a Row- style lessons for youngsters. This book; however, is divided into two parts, the first being similar to the other curriculum guides. Just as in the original series, each unit is built around a simple, classic children's storybook. This book differs from the older volumes in that it is not structured around a week. The purpose is simply to provide an array of activities for each book that engage children and lay the foundation for further learning. Some of the activities are subject related, such as Bible, science, math, language arts, and art; others are various skills such as learning shapes, sequencing, colors or problem solving, and the rest are centered on specific topics, like relationships, contentment, birthdays or another book-related idea. The second part of this book focuses on arming parents with creative ideas to build learning readiness. This section is a treasure trove of activities that help develop reading readiness and motor skills or focus on the arts. Additional activities also capitalize on teachable moments that arise during bath time, in the kitchen, or during a trip to the store. 149 pgs. ~ Steph
