    Part of Master Books' Wonders of Creation series, this book is more historical in nature than the other titles, which focus more on science. For the first time ever in this series, they have written a book with information tailored to three age groups: 5th-6th grade, 7th-8th grade, and 9th-11th grades. Text geared for each age group is printed on a differently-colored background, with the most basic information (who, what, where, why and how) written to younger readers, and the most complex information (theories, controversies) geared for older readers. Eleven chapters discuss what archaeology is, and then look at archaeology investigations at a number of different ancient Middle Eastern sites, including Egypt, the land of the Hittites, Ur of the Chaldees, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Petra, the land of the Phoenicians, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Israel. An overview of the history of locations or cultures is provided in each chapter, along with exciting details on recent discoveries and narratives from the Bible that correlate with the history of a place or related ruler. Maps, full-color photos and notes from the author add further interest. Although the differently-colored blocks of text aren't too hard to get used to as an older reader, younger readers that have an interest in archaeology may browse other sections, and will certainly be interested in perusing the full-color photographs of sites and artifacts. A separate 36-page study guide includes vocabulary, short answer questions, and hands-on activities for each chapter. This is available as a free download at www.masterbooks.net. A wonderful supplement to any study of ancient history, and a great resource for Christian students interested in the field of archaeology. 96 pgs, hc. – Jess

    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

    Some children may have a difficult time applying themselves to books that cover technical programming concepts (such as looping, variables, etc.) or even books that lead directly into those ideas. The focus of this book is instead on short, unstructured lessons exclusively covering Scratch or Scratch games. Instead of having concept-based lessons to follow, as in How to Code in 10 Easy Lessons, kids will work on creating short, simple games using Scratch. These short lessons start out simple (such as making characters move around the screen) and end with making pattern games and virtual pets. Once kids understand how to make basic games, they move on to four fully-fledged game projects. Throughout these lessons the emphasis is placed on the game they are creating, not on programming concepts. Picture this as coming at programming from another angle; instead of learning about what a variable is and then putting a variable named score in the game, they are shown how to keep a score within their game and then learn why a score is a variable and what that entails. To help kids out even more, all instructions and concepts come with full-color illustrations (and cute cartoon characters) which show exactly how to do the projects in a fun, cute way. If your child is interested in programming, but may be more excited about making games as a focus, this is for them. 94 pages. Spiral-bound.

    Uses the programming language Scratch as a base. Focuses on the visual elements of programming - kids begin by making things move around the screen, drawing & painting characters, and creating a virtual pet. Ends with 4 games projects.
