    If you've ever wished you could live forever, this original novel might leave you questioning that wish! When Winnie decides to run away from her overbearing family and her spotless, sterile house, she has no idea she's about to meet a family that accidentally became immortal. No sooner does she stumble on one of the sons (and a handsome one, too) than she is scooped up by the rest of the family and hustled away so they can convince her to keep their horrible secret - and protect the spring that produces this "magic" water from greedy opportunists. When she hears their story - the story of the strange spring, how none of them have aged for a hundred years, and how their immortality is more a curse than a blessing for the poor family, she wants to do everything she can to help them. Unfortunately, a stranger has caught a whiff of the mystery and will do anything to get possession of the woods so he can market this amazing immortality elixir. How can Winnie and the Tuck family protect their secret without everyone in the village finding out? - Jess

    I have to admit I didn't expect this book to start in the kitchen. It "goes" all the places you might expect handyman repairs, fishing, hunting, even building a log cabin. But it does start in the kitchen. Still, it's definitely a boy's perspective on that room. Written by two homeschool moms, inspired by their active boys and handyman fathers, this is a great "how-to" for teaching all the practical aspects of a young man's education. Geared toward boys ages 9-15, I can also imagine girls enjoying both the practical kitchen basics with mom and time with dad learning some things from "his world." Regardless of how and with whom you choose to use it, you'll find this manual a handy reference. Instruction is straight-forward with just a hint of humor (you like to eat learn to cook) and peppered with helpful black & white illustrations. In the kitchen, there are practical rules like "don't put an empty pot on a hot burner it will ruin the pot!" as well as simple how-tos like washing the dishes and reading a recipe, with a nice selection of simple, healthy recipes. Other sections are more of what the title suggests manners, first aid and safety, around-the-house handyman, working with wood, gardening, outdoor adventures, and learning to manage money. There are lots of projects building a birdhouse, toolbox, log cabin, split-rail fence as well as skill-building gun safety, preparing a budget/bookkeeping, and knot-tying. We want our sons to learn these basic life skills, and it helps tremendously to have a "road map" like this one to lead us. 181 pgs, spiral-binding. ~ Janice

    These 12 pre-sharpened glamorous pencils feature black wood wrapped in a silver foil that reflects rainbows when hit by light. This can be really handy when trying to distinguish which student owns which pencil (A fight more common than I’d like to admit from my homeschooling years). Don’t worry – the lead is just a standard #2 pencil that easily erases with the latex-free eraser. A perfect stocking stuffer or an easy way to spice up schoolwork for the sparkle-lover in your life (even if that’s you, Mom!). – Laura

       Just peel and stick. Yes, it really is that easy! We tested this in the office and our staff was easily able to peel and hang the surface freely without bubbles or lumps and bumps. This would make a great alternative to a homeschool room chalkboard or dry erase board that requires being screwed into your walls. Like a poster board, hang it high for teaching or place it low for a dedicated place to draw on the wall. Made to stick to a variety of surfaces, such as painted drywall, steel, glass, wood, and even whiteboards and chalkboards. It can also be cut to size (or fun shapes!), allowing you to use it almost anywhere - even on a tabletop to make your own dry-erase desk! Classroom, homeschool or boardroom, this 3’ x 2’ dry erase surface may be the greatest investment you make this year! Includes a cleaning cloth that easily wipes the stain-proof surface clean. ~ Deanne

    As a homeschool student, my mother gave us each pencils of a different color to stop any arguments of "Hey, that's my pencil!" After seeing this, I wish this was my assigned set. Each has a matte black finish with little graphics of ninja faces as well as a hearty "Hi-Ya!" for good measure. What's even cooler? The pencil wood is black, so you have completely black pencil. Do your studies in stealth mode with this boxed set of 12. HI-YA! – Laura
