    When boys are in that transition to manhood, they have much to learn about responsibility and work ethic. These things are learned in conjunction with godly character training, which Bob Schultz talked about in his previous book, Boyhood and Beyond. This sequel focuses on what it means to be a good worker according to the principles found in God's Word. Using real life stories throughout the book to illustrate lessons and principles, Mr. Schultz combats what he sees as the effects of a modern culture that is addicted to ease and entertainment: dishonest, unproductive, and weak-willed men. He seeks to encourage young men to something better than the world's standards in this book that can be used simply to read, or as a discussion book with ready-to-use questions at the end of each chapter. 181 pgs, pb ~ Zach

    Boyhood is a time for exploring and digging, building and catching fish. Boyhood is the time to capture that adventurous spirit and proactively learn godly character. It is a time to instill a foundation of strong morals and principles – a foundation that will help boys transition from building forts and picking up bugs to men of honor, courage, faith, and wisdom. Bob Schultz offers his insights through many practical and real-life examples on subjects such as inventiveness, honesty, authority, responsibility, forgiveness, industry, justice, countering laziness, overcoming temptation, conquering fear, and many other topics besides. Chapters are fairly short, read easily and clearly, and have messages that are applicable and centered on Scripture. Chapters are followed by discussion questions for groups or journaling. Also a great father-son discussion resource. 219 pgs, pb ~ Zach

    Publisher's description: We've all heard about the classics and assume they're great. Some of us have even read them on our own. But for those of us who remain a bit intimidated or simply want to get more out of our reading, Crossway's Christian Guides to the Classics are here to help.

    In these short guidebooks, popular professor, author, and literary expert Leland Ryken takes you through some of the greatest literature in history while answering your questions along the way.

    Each book:

    • includes an introduction to the author and work
    • explains the cultural context
    • incorporates published criticism
    • defines key literary terms
    • contains discussion questions at the end of each unit of the text
    • lists resources for further study
    • evaluates the classic text from a Christian worldview.

    In this volume, Ryken guides readers through Dickens's quintessential coming-of-age novel, Great Expectations. Exploring perennial themes such as love, justice, and heroism, this book stands as the preeminent example of Dickens's unrivaled ability to conjure realistic characters and palpable settings.

    Advice for becoming an effective communicator with the written word might be "Work hard" or it might be "Practice a lot" or it could be "Have fun as you learn new skills and be encouraged as you work at your own pace to put these new skills into practice". Doesn't that last piece of advice make learning how to write sound a lot more attractive than the first two? It can be that way. For some, learning to write just takes longer and requires a little more effort. That is the beauty about writing courses such as this one. The Write Stuff Adventure is extremely flexible; students can begin learning at any time during the school year, and teachers can select any of the units that are best suited for the skill level of the student. Of course, it can work in a more regimented style as well, because it progresses from the simple to the complex over the six sections in the book. This curriculum covers the whole spectrum of writing, beginning with the basics in section one, entitled "Simple Things", and teaching a multitude of writing styles as progress is made through the next five sections. These include: letter writing to relatives, instruction lists, speeches, letters to the editor, essay writing, interviewing, news stories, feature stories, photojournalism, short stories and much, much more. At the beginning, a lot of emphasis is placed on positive encouragement rather than being picky about spelling mistakes and the like. Mastery of spelling and grammar will come; in the early stages, however, writing should be an enjoyable experience, not something to discourage the young writers. The writing assignments do become more difficult as you advance through the six sections, but again, the versatility of this curriculum allows it to be spread over several years. And don't worry about getting discouraged as the teacher, either. The lessons are well laid out, easy to follow and understand, and all have notes for the teacher. Lessons begin with an explanation of the assignment, and often, they include an example to illustrate the assignment. A marvelous course in writing aimed at producing effective communicators in any career field. ~ Zach

    Reading good literature opens wide the windows of the world to students. A body of materials which will link the student with the general experience of mankind is provided in this book. This collection of titles is divided into ten units presenting experiences common to people in all times and societies. Certain works have been selected to provide as wide a scope as possible and while something will interest each reader, all of the titles in this collection will not be suitable for all students. Books such as Pride and Prejudice, Little Women, The Chalk Garden, The House of Mirth, On Golden Pond, The Chocolate War, 2001: Space Odyssey, The Great Gatsby, Great Expectations, and Ivanhoe represent the quality books from all spectrums that this book features. The book includes a reading level identification for and a short description of all 150 featured books and then provides tests for each book. Each test in this volume contains three types of questions. A set of objective questions will measure the student's understanding of the reading content., such as the basics of plot and setting. Five short-answer questions require more inferential responses about the larger ideas that the author wishes the reader to grasp. A final challenge essay asks the student to express observations on what has been read and to support those observations with information gained from the book, other books, and life. 100 More Great Books is constructed in the same format and contains seven units grouped in types of books: Adventure and Survival, The Maturing Self, History in Fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy, and the Supernatural, Social Issues and Moral Challenge, Success and Achievement and Reflections of the Family. It recommends classics such as Pilgrims Progress, Jacob Have I Loved, Across Five Aprils, A Wrinkle in Time, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, Anna and the King of Siam, Tess of the D'Urbervilles and many more. - Rachel S.

    Originally published in 1890, this book will never be outdated. Sound, Biblically- based, and full of wisdom, I heartily recommend it to any parent who hasn't yet read it. Mr. Trumball strikes a perfect balance between nurturing and discipline in his definition and methods of training a child - the goal being for the child to come to think rightly for himself. The book is sensible, easy to read, and will inspire any parent to do a better job.
