       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.

    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

    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.

    One little woman with a big heart left her comfortable lifestyle in England in 1932 to become a missionary in China. She packed her bags by faith and trusted God to provide for all her needs. You will be amazed as you read about how she endured many hardships, trials, and sorrows during the years she spent in China. Your heart will be warmed as you read the many ways God took care of her and the people she came in contact with as she shared the Gospel and took children into her makeshift orphanage. The best part about this 153 page paperback book is that the story is told by Gladys Aylward herself. This is an amazing autobiography that I couldn't put down until I had read every last page of her remarkable life! She may have been a little woman, but Gladys definitely left a big legacy behind for us all to learn from! – elise

    Have you ever read the Old Testament, and wished for a better understanding of the feasts and celebrations observed by the Israelites? For example, what was the Feast of Trumpets? What was the significance of the Day of Atonement?

    Seven major festivals are covered in this book, including The Sabbath, The Passover, The Feast of First Fruits, The Feast of Pentecost, The Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement and The Feast of Tabernacles. Author Martha Zimmerman has carefully researched each festival, and acted each one out with her own family. She then compiled her research and experience in this systematic guide to recreating Biblical feasts in your own home or church.

    Each feast is covered in three distinct sections. First of all, the significance of the feast is described. Symbolic elements such as bread, wine, and candles are explained in detail, and scripture references pertaining to the feast are cited. Secondly, the materials needed for the observance are listed. Most of these are common items you may already have in your own home. Ingredients and recipes for meals are included. Finally, the celebration is laid out in full detail, with specific directions for the observance of the ceremony. Poems, prayers and recitations are listed in the order they are to be used, making festival re-enactment simple, even for the novice. While the observation of these festivals isn't necessary for New Testament believers, this book would shed new light on your study of the Old Testament. ~ Rachel

    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

    Another fascinating Bible history book by Ruth Beechick, author of Adam and His Kin. The product of much research and knowledge of ancient history and the Bible, it is suitable for teens or adults as a short course in ancient history. But, more than that, it is the story of truth - and how that truth has come to be perverted through history. It is the story of righteous and wicked men and kings. It is the story of civilizations - how and where they sprung up and flourished. It's the story of our roots. The historical and literary evidences of Biblical truth, the tracing of the recorded truth that eventually became our Bible, and the chronology of our "family tree" are masterfully woven together in this extremely readable text. Throughout Ruth's narrative, we can see the origins of false religions and flawed world views. Taking us through Genesis 1-11, it contains six units, corresponding to the "books" written by the earliest recorders of history. Using the King James translation, each unit begins with the actual Scripture to read. A Scripture study includes activities to help students understand the reading - activities such as drawing maps, listing genealogies, memorizing key verses, noting specific words used, comparing the reading to other Scriptures, etc. Topic studies address particular references in the Scripture reading and expand on them, using historic, literary, and linguistic sources. Ruth's many insights and expert compilation of information make these studies engrossing. Each topic is followed by questions that can be answered orally or in writing. Further study has the student do a little research and reporting of his own. In these sections, source books and other readings are recommended. There are also suggestions for several correlating writing projects. If using the study with several students, you may want to assign each a different one. Other types of activities are also included, varying by unit. The book is recommended for use independently for junior high and up, or for a family study with children of all ages. I know my eight-year-old would enjoy this study as much (or more) as my older children. I would be surprised if parents purchasing this book as an independent course for their older children didn't end up reading it from cover to cover themselves.
