    This is a great book for introducing younger children to the moving and powerful stories from the Bible. In a storybook format, it takes the reader through Genesis to Revelation, showing how the Bible is one big story about God and His plan for the world.

Full-color pages feature illustrations of the stories, and the book is great for reading out-loud or for slightly older kids to read independently.

    In typical, fascinating Usborne style, this updated volume takes readers on a whirlwind tour of 10,000 years of history, from the first farmers to the fall of the Roman Empire. Unlike many other books that focus on this time period, the focus is not only on the Greeks and Romans, but early civilizations from around the world are also represented, including the Hittites, Canaanites, the Hebrew kingdoms, Assyrians, Persians, the early Chinese, early Arab kingdoms, early North Americans, the people of ancient Peru, the Olmecs, the Celts, early African kingdoms, and many more. The focus is more on daily life than events of the time, and examples of housing, architecture, art, weapons, tombs, agriculture, and more are represented for each time period. Visual types will enjoy the cut-away views of structures so they can "see inside" houses and tombs of each civilization. A map and a list of important dates are also included for each civilization. Most pages also include a link to check out a related website that gives readers an opportunity to do things like hear how a Hittite would have said "hello" or play a game of Senet. An excellent resource for any study of ancient history. 96 pgs, pb. – Jess

    What a story of passion. Young Gutenberg's love of books and reading was a hard thing in the days when books were all copied out by hand. It was an agonizing wait sometimes, and Gutenberg's dream was to find some way of speeding up the making of books. We remember him as the man who invented both moveable type and the printing press, but we hear very little of the struggles it took to bring that to fruition. This book uses simple language to tell this rollercoaster of a story. 64 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    By the same author as Leonardo Da Vinci (#12235), this book follows the same basic format, with lots of illustrations and a complete and captivating text. It starts right at the beginning, when Michelangelo was first born to his not-so-rich parents. Not many years later, he was sent to live with some stonecutters where he got his start into chiseling and stonework. Readers follow his life as he fights his father for the chance to apprentice with an artist, carves his first sculpture, and paints the Sistine chapel. Learn about the many successes and difficulties he endured throughout his 89 years. - Melissa

    The Caner brothers (Ergun and Emir), both Christian converts from Islam, suffered the painful rejection of their father, who saw their change of heart as a rejection of Allah for which they could not be forgiven. Twenty-two years later, as he lay dying of cancer, the authors were once again face-to-face with the man who was their hero, and his last wish was for each of them to read the Qur'ran in its entirety, hoping they might find their way back to the beliefs he had raised them to hold. Their book, subtitled An Insider's Look At Muslim Life and Beliefs, instructs the reader on the major facets of this all-encompassing way of life extending beyond the mosque deep into the very institutions of the government wherever possible. In many ways, Islam has always been more cultural than spiritual in nature. In order to effectively witness to Muslims, it's necessary to understand this culture so that we do not offend them and close the door. The end of the book is dedicated to giving the reader specific tools towards that end. We need to be mindful of this group that numbers more than 1 billion followers. 251 pgs. ~ Tom

    A study of Hebrew history from 2000 to 430 B.C., beginning with Abram being called out of Ur. Over 80 activities and projects accompany the informational text from Growing Up in Ur and building ziggurats to Returning to Jerusalem and calculating tithes. Children construct salt-dough maps, make musical instruments, locust biscuits, and outfits to wear, mix up and bake a batch of unleavened bread, make an olive-oil lamp, and much, much more as they follow Biblical history From Abraham to Nehemiah. Projects and activities are well-coordinated with the text, which is amazingly good. The author has done an excellent job of combining Bible history with culture and customs. All you may want to add is actual Scripture reading for a great early history study.
