    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.

    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

    Lena can recite the Scriptures by heart. Hoping to make her beloved papa proud of her and to make her white classmates notice her "Magic Mind" instead of her black skin, Lena vows to win the Bible-quoting contest, but winning does not bring Lena what she expects. Instead of honor, violence and death erupt and strike the one she loves most dearly. Lena, who has believed in vengeance, must now learn how to forgive. "A many-layered book. Ouida Sebestyen has wrapped story in poetry, wrapped me with it, too, caught me and held me, made me feel." - Cynthia King, The New York Times.

    Our society today has lost sight of what is true beauty. A vast array of incomplete or inaccurate qualities inundates our daughters from billboards, television and the like. Have you ever wondered how to teach your daughter what really matters when it comes to defining beauty or how to show her what God's word say about beauty?

    With over ten weeks of in-depth studies on the topic of beauty, this excellent book will provide your daughter a thorough understanding of beauty from God's perspective. Topics included are Beauty in Submission (I Peter), Beauty in the Heart, Beauty in Trusting God (Sarah), Beauty in Humility (Esther), Beauty in Modesty (I Timothy), Beauty in Serving, Beauty without Discretion (Proverbs), Beauty under Pressure (1 Samuel 25), and Beauty in the Gates (Ruth). The book concludes with a review of Biblical beauty.

    While a thorough understanding of the above concepts is invaluable to our daughters, one of the greatest treasures of this study is that our daughters are taught how to study the Word of God. Through inductive, topical and character studies which compare passages of scriptures, research Hebrew and Greek Words and teach how to effectively use printed and online study helps, our daughters will become well-equipped to study the word of God for a lifetime. Recommended materials include internet/mobile apps, Nave's Topical Bible, Strong's Exhaustive Concordance and a Bible you don't mind marking in. KJV and ESV are the versions utilized throughout the study.

    Additional study ideas are included at the end of each study if you wish to examine the concept more in-depth. Incorporating additional topics will provide a thorough, year-long study on beauty. While primarily written for girls, the author provides alternate questions for young men designed to help them understand true beauty, making this a flexible resource for families. Consumable workbooks are reproducible for family use. PB. 128 pgs. ~Deanne

    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

    This book offers help and encouragement to build a habit of memorizing Scripture. This author allows you to choose the Scripture; the book focuses on key methods of memorizing using games and activities, as well as lesson plans for an intensive six-week memorization program. The book starts by explaining the benefits of memorization: for praying, allowing the Spirit to speak, and building faith. The Keys and Methods to memorizing are diverse and helpful: how to start, learn by chunks, learn with pictures, learn by singing, etc. Sometimes the included games aid in memorization; sometimes they initiate or trigger the memory time in a group of students (the winner of this game will lead the group in Scripture memory, for example). The book contains a few black & white photos here and there and provides plenty of note taking space in each chapter. 92 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    "Journey to Arrethrae, where these knights of noble heart live and die in loyal service to the King and the Prince. These knights are mighty, for they serve a mighty King. They are… the Knights of Arrethrae!" Written by Chuck Black, author of the Kingdom series, this series, although featuring an order of faithful knights and full medieval trappings, is a bit different. While the Kingdom series is based on the events of the Bible, this series is allegorical in the sense that the knights and their enemies reflect Christians today and the temptations of this world. Although the various knights make appearances throughout the series, each title follows one particular knight as they face a powerful adversary. In Sir Kendrick and the Castle of Bel Lione, Sir Kendrick investigates a secretive new order of knights and faces off against Lord Ra, who encourages young people to leave home and never return (symbolizing the danger of rebellion). Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue pits the valiant lady knight against Lord Malco, distributor of the dangerously addictive "esca" crystals (representing various forms of escapism). The storylines are not only enlightening but exciting and would make perfect family read-alouds. If you enjoy them as a family you'll especially appreciate the discussion questions by chapter (answers are included). Pb, just under 200 pgs each. – Jess

    The year is 1841, and Japan has closed its borders to all outside influences, lest foreign devilry and barbarism seep into the country. Manjiro, a fourteen-year-old fisherman, and four of his friends are out on the seas searching for a good dinner when a terrible gale strikes their fishing boat and smashes it onto a rocky island. As the five friends attempt to survive in their desperate situation, Manjiro reveals his secret desire to be a samurai. Everyone laughs at the preposterous idea of a fisherman’s son becoming such a high-ranking individual, but Manjiro retains his dream. Soon after the incident, they spot a vessel offshore- an American vessel. Though no one wants to be corrupted by the barbarians, the group cuts their losses as the ship approaches and signal to it for help. After the group is rescued, mistrust and resentment stirs between the Japanese fishermen and some of the American sailors, but Manjiro tries his best to communicate and help out around the ship. As the captain takes a liking to the industrious (though occasionally clumsy) boy, he begins to take Manjiro under his wing, teaching him as much as he can. However, this leaves Manjiro in a troublesome spot- he longs to return to Japan, but if he does, his country will label him as a traitor influenced by foreign troublemakers. But if he continues to travel with the Americans, he has no idea where it will lead him. As Manjiro struggles to make his place among the vessel and its crew, every decision and interaction weighs heavily on his shoulders. Newberry Honor Book. 301 pgs. Paperback.

       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

    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

    What makes this series meaty enough to be considered for gifted education? The units were written by the College of William & Mary specifically for Project Clarion. The Project Clarion Science Units introduce young ones to science concepts, processes, and overarching concepts in a hands-on, inquiry approach which allows children to build their knowledge and skills as they explore and play their way through organized information.

    You're probably wondering about Project Clarion, what it is, and why it is important. The College of William and Mary received a research grant from the Department of Education for a five-year study, with the goal of enhancing science concept development among the K-3 group. The subjects of the curriculum they developed are: basic concepts in the world of science, overarching or macro concepts (change is the concept in this series), knowledge of selected topics in science, science process skills, critical thinking skills, creative thinking, curiosity and interest in science. Children will learn about scientific method in age-appropriate terms and learn to apply the method just as a real scientist would.

    Each science unit is divided into two parts. The first part of each unit includes an introduction, instructions for using the unit, grading rubrics, glossary, teacher notes, and resources. "What is a Scientist?" by B. Lehn is required for the four units listed here, along with others which are listed below. Section 2 includes 12 to 15 lessons which have been tested in over 40 classrooms and cover science in the areas of earth science, life science, and physical science. The first two lessons in each unit are much the same ("What is a Scientist?" "What is Change?") and lesson content is similar in each of them, but include slight variations. Pre- and Post-assessments are included in each unit along with reproducible activity pages and appendices which include materials lists, tables, and reference material.

    These units are definitely for children who have a bent for learning and for parents who want to meet their gifted child at an appropriate level. These expansive studies are challenging and thought-provoking while being fun and interactive. ~ Donna
