    Too often we parents fall into the same way of thinking as the prophet Samuel did when he was looking for Saul's successor as king. God corrected him in 1 Sam. 16:7, saying, "man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." Our parenting tends to focus on proper behavior rather than proper attitude. Ted Tripp (with 20+ years of experience as pastor, counselor, school administrator, and father) encourages us to use God's guidance to alter our focus. He believes that what a person becomes is made up of both the child's environment and the child's reaction to his environment. Sure, as a parent, you want to provide the best possible home in which to raise a child, but it is the heart attitude that will see a child (and later, the adult) through times when circumstances are more trying. So the emphasis of this book is to help a child develop a Godward orientation. However, the book is not ethereal, but practical. As parents, we have been given authority to direct our children's upbringing under God's direction. Setting Biblical goals for our children, unlearning worldly methods of parenting, and learning God's ways of communicating and disciplining round out the first section of the book. Part Two divides childhood into three age categories, and provides training objectives and procedures for each age group. Finally, a handy scripture-reference-to-book-page index helps you find pertinent sections for day-to-day application. God intended the Bible to be a practical guide for living. This book helps us to extract the portions applicable to parenting and put them into practice.

    Picking up where Shepherding a Child's Heart left off, this book by Tedd and Marcy Tripp continues to examine biblical truths and apply them to parenting. It focuses more on formative instruction – that is, how to teach your children in a way that molds them into productive, God-honoring members of society. The first section explains the need for formative instruction, goals to set, and parental responsibility for the upbringing of their children. The second section focuses on more specific truths about training your children like the importance of the heart, God's plan for authority, wisdom and foolishness, the importance of the church, and more. The last section gives practical tips on how to apply biblical correction, discipline, and motivation while raising your children and prompts parents to use every opportunity to show the gospel and God's character and grace to their children. Full of personal stories, Bible passages, and practical, Christ-centered encouragement and instruction, this book will be a great help to parents looking to instill a God-honoring heart into their children. 188 pgs, pb. ~Rachel

    Not long ago I joked about founding ACLAH – a support group for moms whose Adult Children are Living at Home. That's because I'm in the fall season of my life – that precious, and undoubtedly too-short – time when my children are adults but not totally gone from our home. As my joke implies, there are challenges in this time period – but then there are challenges at all the others, too. I remember being a mother of three young children and wondering how to get everything done without a good night's sleep. I remember the busy, busy homeschooling days. Sally Clarkson also knows those challenges intimately. And by sharing her thoughts and heart about each "season of a mother's heart" she helps us to recognize both our own hearts and to deepen our dependence on God. This book was first written over a decade ago when Sally was just beginning to realize that homeschooling moms need to be affirmed in their decision to homeschool and to be validated in the curious lifestyle they have chosen. Now, revisiting the book, she's wiser, more experienced, just as perceptive, and still committed to bringing encouragement to homeschooling moms. I think you'll want to take this book in small doses – savoring each page as the heart-felt sharing of a good friend. ~ Janice

    Have you ever longed for a veteran homeschool mom to take you by the hand and share her life with you…the ups and the downs of the homeschool journey, the real and living grace that only God can provide for the life He has called us to? Meet Rachael. A mom who heard God's call to educate and disciple her children at home; a mom who's path into homeschooling began with much yelling and screaming (clue: it was not the children!), a Mom who by God's grace learned to have a H.E.A.R.T for her children… a Mom who is a great deal like me and possibly, she may just be a bit like you.

    Through honest sharing, Bible study and practical words of wisdom Rachael shares with us the grace available from God and how to effectively respond to His call. Her innovative acronym, H.E.A.R.T. enables us to focus on what is really important in our homeschool. What is the H.E.A.R.T. of the matter? Having a heart for God; Enrich your marriage, Accept your kids; Release them to God; Teach them truth. Each chapter focuses on one aspect of our H.E.A.R.T. Through personal stories, biblical examples and practical ideas, we are set free to cultivate our own hearts toward our families. Heart Check Up questions conclude each chapter and provides journaling ideas for self-examination or potential discussion questions for a Mom's book study. This much needed book will encourage you toward a life of discipleship with the precious children God has given to you. 205 pgs, hc. ~ Deanne

    Rather than simply telling kids how they should exercise and what they should eat, this attractive little journal offers them space to record how well they've eaten, and how much they've exercised during the week, with some cute little "extras" besides. The journal includes 52 weeks of journal pages, to last for a whole year. Each week is given a two-page spread. On the left-hand page, you'll find short lists of recommended activities, healthy snacks, and a tip or two about how to eat healthier or how to make active exercise more fun. The right-hand page contains the journal part, and includes a physical activity log, divided by day of the week. Kids are encouraged to write down their "active" achievements for the day, even if some days they are not as ambitious. The bottom of the page features a fill-in-the-grid "time tracker", where they can fill in a square for every ten minutes of exercise completed that day; a "healthy food 9-square," where they can draw a happy face or place a sticker into a square for each healthy food eaten that week; and a "writer & artist corner" where they can sketch or jot down a thought about exercise or healthy eating for the week. The journal itself is good-quality, with thick pages and full-color lively illustrations of active kids and healthy snacks sprinkled throughout. Designed by the founding editor of kidsrunning.com, the journal is full of tried and true tips and helpful advice from someone with a solid health and nutrition background. Also, it's often recommended that recording activities and accomplishments is very helpful for people trying to reach specific goals, and this is particularly true for reaching fitness goals. If your family is making an effort to be more active and to eat more healthily, these journals would be an excellent tool for the kids to track their progress. - Jess

       True humility is expressed vertically and horizontally: vertically in our relationship with God and horizontally in our relationships with others. Beginning with our relationship with God, this study guides children through what it means to be God’s workmanship and valued by Him; what it means to honor and glorify God; authority; and prayer prior to obeying and honoring parents; sin; and practical application of humility toward others including table manners, interruption rule, giving preference to others and respecting the time and property of others. Guide contains 11 sections (chapters) with end of the section review and final exam (no answers included). Black and white graphics reflective of simpler times. Requires KJV Bible and dictionary of your choice. From Queen Homeschool. SC. 83 pgs. ~ Deanne

    Take the simplicity of the Bob Books and turn it into a reading game genius! Bob Books have helped children learn to read for decades, and now little ones can learn to recognize letters and sounds with the Bob Books Happy Hats Game. For up to four players, each person chooses one of the friendly Bob Books characters as their moving piece. Flick the spinner to see how many places to move on the game board the spaces are alphabetical around the edge of an oblong playing board (10x 20). On each space there is a blackline drawing of something that begins with that letter along with the printed word. Children choose from their hand of word-ending cards (40 in the game) to either form a word beginning with that letter or match the letter (if its a vowel). If they can form a word or match the vowel, they get to take a hat token. The person with the most hats at the end of the game wins. Learning to read just became a whole lot more fun!

    From one homeschool mom to another. Everything in this program is designed to communicate "I'm a homeschool mom that taught my kids to read. It's easy. It's fun! You can do it, too. Have a great time." And I'm sure if you follow Diane Hopkins' step by step approach wrapped with loving teacher-student interaction, that's exactly the result you'll get. After going through the just-the-right-size (25 pages) Teacher's Guidebook and looking through the brightly colored cardstock that makes up the program, I'm happy with the appearance of the product and really, really impressed with the content.

    Starting at the very beginning, Mrs. Hopkins has boiled the entire process down into eight steps. And even if step seven (teach phonics units containing two or more letters) has seventeen parts, she's still managed to make a homeschool mom's most fearful task into something that seems remarkably ordinary and doable.

    The package contains the Happy Phonics Guidebook, "My Big Book" (an almost-to-the-end-of-the-program-reader) and lots of printed, brightly colored paper and cardstock – flashcards, game components, first little readers and spelling lists. The Guidebook contains the Eight Steps along with specific how-to instructions for each step. The essence of the program is to introduce the phonics concepts a few at a time and then play games for retention. The author suggests that lesson time be about 10 minutes a day, but you may want to factor in more time to play the games over and over just because the student wants to.

    The Guidebook is extremely user-friendly and written in first-person, mom-to-mom form. The step-by-step instructions are straight-forward and easy to follow. All references to the games and other supplementary material are coded with little symbols found on the colored sheets. Practically foolproof! But just to be sure, there's a chart that lists which games/components are used with each teaching step. There's also a chart clearly laying out those seventeen phonics units that make up step seven. And, of course, the teaching aids are clearly marked for each unit.

    The teaching progression is common sense. Alphabet song; capital letters match lowercase letters; the main sound for each letter; blend letter sounds to form a word; teach common non-phonetic (sight) words; teach vowels that can make a second sound; teach through the phonic units; READ. Although she doesn't consider them absolutely necessary, the author does mention supplementary material that she likes and that her children have enjoyed – Lauri perception puzzles, Leap Frog Phonics Library, and the Explode the Code books. In fact, she changed her original letter presentation order (used with her older children) to conform to the Explode the Code books for her younger children and in this program. She also suggests various supplementary readers.

    The games and other reinforcement activities are obviously a central component of this program. Some preparation is involved, usually just cutting cards apart. I would be inclined to laminate (or cover with clear contact paper) some of the frequently-used cards and game layouts if I thought it likely I'd be using the program with a number of children. The games include some adapted favorites like Phonics Bingo and a number of creative originals like the Y Not? Game. The line art of the game components is not high tech graphics but still communicates the concept and looks inviting. Components of the games are color coded, with the little symbols marked on each game piece, so that you can easily unscramble things if they don't always get put away neatly.

    This program fits into the "complete program" category of phonics instruction, as it includes systematic phonics, reinforcement, and reading practice. The program gets your student reading on his own in an enjoyable way. Please note that it does not cover advanced syllabication, prefixes, and suffixes that tend to be found in second/third grade levels of some phonics programs. But it is an enjoyable program that will build the confidence of a newbie and provide ease of instruction for busy homeschooling mothers. All for a very reasonable price! - Janice

    The third grade level, Healthy Happy Habits, focuses on every-day habits, physical safety, and getting along with others. Lessons are quick and working two days per week to complete each lesson, you will finish in 30 weeks. The thirty lessons are divided equally into five chapters, and each chapter is rounded out with a chapter review and test (tests are found at the back of the book). There is no separate teacher edition (no answer key), but at the front of the student workbook there is an explanation of the course and lesson suggestions. The publisher suggests purchasing an extra student workbook to fill in with answers – an answer key for future students. Some of the exercises include word searches, drawing, cutting and pasting, short answer, and more. The workbook is only 60 pages long, so perfect for younger children.

    A follow-up to the popular Honey for a Child's Heart, Gladys Hunt has taken her passion for good literature and melded it with her passion to help teenagers catch a "vision of what they could be, what they were meant to be, created in God's image."

    The book discusses the value of reading as an individual as well as together as a family. She relates stories about her family reading together and the shared experiences, memories and discussions which resulted. The point? Reading together is as valuable for families with teens as it is for families with small children. I can attest to this as when our three year old goes to bed, my teenage boys and my wife and I read aloud together. I am fairly sure my teenagers enjoy it, if their pleas of "Can't we read just one more chapter?" are any indication.

    The author then discusses the characteristics of what makes a good book and evaluating literature within a Christian worldview. Finally, there are book lists by genre to help you choose books of interest to your teen along with handy indexes for reference. Want help getting your teen off the computer and back into reading? This book may just be the ticket. ~ Jerry
