       The Great War. The war to end all wars. World War 1 has been known by various names. Understanding the history, battles, propaganda, the wounded and the role of women enables us to understand the subsequent wars and our world today. Written for the upper elementary and middle school student, this book takes a realistic, yet not gruesome look as it explains the ins and outs of World War I. Each topic is presented in a 2- page spread and includes background information, fascinating facts, and photographs, maps and other related illustrations. Did you know that the Germans added other ingredients to make their foods go further? War Bread, for example, often included potatoes and sometimes straw. Children (and adults!) of all ages will find this a well written, engaging resource to enrich their history studies. Concludes with additional book and web resources. Index. 64 pgs, pb. ~ Deanne

    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

    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

    Using her well-known talent for making complex topics clear and understandable, Dr. Beechick has provided us with another valuable and exciting resource for teaching. This book is riveting! In a sharp departure from her fabulous "how to teach" books, Dr. Beechick introduces us to an almost forgotten world in a fantastic work of historical fiction - combining the actual, historical truths revealed in scripture with various other sources to create a fluid, easy-to-read "walk" through early history. We journey from creation to the departure of Abram from Ur, through the eyes of the Old Testament authors. Hopefully, Dr. Beechick will continue in this vein in future books. 176 pgs.

    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

    Leonardo Da Vinci completed many wonderful works of art in his lifetime, but did you know that he had a habit of leaving projects unfinished? Even the pope of his time was annoyed with him because of this bad habit! This book gives us a very thorough look into his life, from his birth in 1452 to his death in 1519. It walks step-by-step through his early life in the country, first apprenticeship, struggling career, many inventions, and his fascination with learning. The book has 44 pages of staggered text and brilliant illustrations. Also scattered throughout the pages are small samplings and sketches from Da Vinci's famous notebooks, portraying his original ideas and inventions. - Melissa

    The things that Lisa, her older sister Ruth, her younger sister Annie, and her mother had to endure is incredible. They lived in Berlin in 1938 when the Nazis were first starting to take over. Lisa's father, who is referred to as Papa, decides in the very beginning of this story to leave Germany and establish a foundation for his family in America. Meanwhile, life in Berlin is getting more dangerous for Jewish people, and as the threat of war is turning into reality, Papa sends a letter over, suggesting that his wife and their daughters flee to Switzerland, masking the emigration as a vacation. Mother is allowed to bring only 10 marks per person with her, which puts her in a very challenging financial situation. She keeps Annie with her and is forced to send Ruth and Lisa to a camp where there are other children in similar situations or without parents at all. The girls don't get enough to eat and don't have the kind of care that all children need. After they visit their mother, she senses this and takes them out of the camp. Pretty soon, all three girls are sent to live with three different families in Zurich, where they are well-nourished and thrive. Mother collapses from pneumonia and spends this time in the hospital. She recovers and the family is on their way to being reunited with their father, whom they have not seen for nearly a year by this time, as he has been saving for their tickets to America. Sonia Levitin tells a touching, and very real story, that I am sure was sadly not uncommon.
