    You would expect a 550 page book on gifted children and parents to include a wide range of topics and this one does not disappoint. From a variety of authors – each with his or her niche in terms of gifted expertise – the privilege and responsibility of raising a child whose abilities may surprise and astound, whose sensitivities may confuse, whose idiosyncrasies may amaze, and whose educational needs may overwhelm is carefully considered. Because these authors have a full range of experience, the pages are packed with practical, helpful, encouraging, and exciting steps of action from assessment to advocacy, characteristics and diversity to family dynamics, preschool precocity to college, and twice-exceptional and specific needs to programming options (i.e. how to educate). In fact, the “programming” section sets this book apart from other gifted handbooks since it considers the full breadth of options – including homeschooling – rather than focusing on the more typical public school programs although those are covered as well. If you have a gifted child – or suspect that you do – you can expect understanding, direction, encouragement and help from this collection. Note: this book is from a secular publisher and the realities of diversity and sexuality are candidly discussed. Paperback. Janice

    Simple Gifts is a teaching guide for anyone who works with children and especially helpful for home schooling as a checklist-driven method for organizing and simplifying the daily effort. The guide could be called "a crash course in home schooling" or "an executive summary for busy teachers" or "a way to make home schooling simple and organized." The author took the overwhelming body of research and advice about education and distilled that down to essential principles and activities, thus giving the home schooling parent peace of mind that all fundamental skills are being developed. It is written in a conversational style but is succinct, respecting the valuable time of its busy readers. Its main purpose is to help parents and other teachers re-evaluate their goals, organize, simplify their lives, and gain peace of mind that they are working efficiently. The guide provides three key checklists for the teacher that address not only academic instruction, but also character education and the fostering of healthy habits. These checklists can serve as a daily organizer/planner for the teacher and student, no matter which curriculum is being studied, no matter which books are being read. The checklists help everyone rest assured that they are covering "all the bases." The guide also addresses the personal qualities and habits of the teacher that lead to success.

    This guide covers all learning styles, is adaptable for all ages, abilities, and subjects, can be used in any educational setting, incorporates learning theory, and serves as a reminder to teach with variety. The guide also provides a set of graphic organizers, sample transcripts, grade records, progress charts, a history timeline, a vocabulary card template, a phonics phoneme chart for review or remedial work, a list of recommended materials, and lists of questions for problem solving, writing, and taking tests, all of which may be photocopied by the purchaser for instructional use. ~ Caryl Schlicher/Author

    A pet pig, a hovercraft ride, Grandpa's crutch collection, an invisibility potion: what would be the best gift, and what would be the worst? It depends whose birthday it is! Similar to the very popular Apples to Apples game, players are dealt 5 cards, and one person is the judge for each round. Keeping in mind the judge for that round, everyone else chooses a picture card from their hand, and then the receiver picks the best gift and the worst gift. The players who gave those gifts each score a point, and the first person to get five points wins. What will you get on your birthday? (Please note that there are a few cards that some parents may want to remove, such as Trip to Hogwarts, Caveman Skull, Stay at a Haunted Hotel, and the Shorts card.) Includes 150 full-color cards in a box. -Laura

    Grandma Dowdel, the memorable old lady from A Long Way From Chicago and A Year Down Yonder is back in this enjoyable tale of a Methodist preacher's family who just so happened to move into the parsonage next door to her. It's tough for a preacher to build up a church following in a small town where everyone seems set in their ways. But while the family is scraping by and adjusting to life in a new place, Grandma Dowdel is up to her old tricks. And whether they realize it or not, this legendary lady who is not known to be a church-goer may just work some miracles in their lives! By Richard Peck, 166 pages, pb. Includes discussion guide. – Jess

    A lovely 5-yr gratitude journal from Peter Pauper Press. Each day has only 5 lines, just enough for something positive that happened that day, from a cup of coffee shared with a friend to a scripture that touched your heart. The cover has a white background with stylized open flowers in white, light lavender and deep orchid. It is decidedly feminine and calming. What a nice gift this would make for Mother's Day or a birthday. Give one to a friend who inspires you with their daily gratitude. Keep one yourself as a reminder to look for the good in every day. The top of each page shows the month and day, while the five purple spaces below each have 20__ at the top of them. With the same date from every year on the same page, you can easily compare your thoughts from over the years. 372 pp, acid-free archival lined paper, elastic band bookmarker. ~ Sara
