    Like all of Holling C. Holling's excellent books, readers will learn natural history almost effortlessly through an engaging story of a creature living and exploring its environment, and beautiful, detailed illustrations. Pagoo takes place in an ocean tidepool. Little Pagarus, or Pagoo, is a newly-hatched hermit crab, no larger than a pencil dot. His chances of survival are slim, but he has his instinct, affectionately titled "Old Pal" to guide him through the trials of growing up. Through the book he grows from a soft, translucent feathery being to a real hermit crab with claws and a shell home. Through it all, readers will come to learn about hermit crabs, other tide-pool and shallow ocean-dwellers, how they interact, and which predators little Pagoo needs to watch out for. With its intricate illustrations, personal story, and excellent blend of fact and fictional story, this book, first published in the '50's, surpasses any book on the subject I've seen today! - Jess

       Whether outdoor enthusiast or arm-chair adventurer, children will find practical and fascinating information within the colorful pages of this book. I confess I fell in love with this book as I read the disclaimer: “You should NEVER put yourself in dangerous situations to test whether this advice really works….” Interest piqued! Subject matter is divided into 4 sections: Animal Dangers, Natural Dangers, Human Hazards and Basic Survival Skills. Each topic is covered in a 2 page spread and provides brief background information and steps to survival. Topically, children will learn what to do if bitten by a snake; how to escape a bear; how to survive an earthquake and hurricane; how to escape from a car in water; how to escape ship; using a Swiss Army knife; knot making, first aid and much more! Glossary and index included. 96 pgs, SC. ~ Deanne

    Love making paracord bracelets, but want to try something new? This book is for you! Try five different kinds of bracelets, two headbands, four styles of necklaces, a wallet chain, belt, lanyard for a whistle or ID badge, dog collar, camera strap, key fob, coffee cup sleeve, yoga mat harness, and even flip flop straps! I really enjoyed looking through this book and trying a few of the projects. Some bracelets and necklaces use chains or beads to shake it up. Personally I am really excited to make a coffee cup sleeve – it looks so pretty! The illustrated directions make it easy to take your paracord creations to the next level, and the variety of projects make this a fun book regardless of age or gender. Parents: heat is required to seal the ends of the cord to prevent fraying, so you might want to help younger ones with this part. 47 pgs, sc - Laura

    When Julie's father is drafted, Aunt Martha takes the motherless Julie into her home. Her father then disappears on a hunting trip, so she makes her home with Martha until she is thirteen and promised in marriage to an Eskimo boy. She realizes, however, that she is not prepared for marriage, and after her teenage husband, succumbing to peer pressure, threatens (and tries unsuccessfully) to force himself on her, she runs away to the tundra. (Please note that younger readers may find this scene disturbing.) As she adjusts to life in the frozen wilderness, she becomes dependent upon a pack of wolves for her survival. Confused because her world is changing and with it the customs of her people, Julie must choose between living in the past and facing the future. By Jean Craighead George; 170 pgs, pb. A Newbery Award winner.

    Books written about World War Two seldom examine the conflict from the perspective of a young boy or girl. This publication, however, shares the personal experiences of one boy growing up in war torn England during WW2. Readers learn about how this young lad learned to survive bombing raids, use a gas mask, grow his own victory garden, and invent ways to have fun during air raids when everything was blacked out. The lessons that this boy learns as he seeks to survive a conflict that he barely understands are vividly portrayed within the pages of this touching and beautifully illustrated volume. 92 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    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

    I've always thought of homeschooling as less about the specific points of information and much more about teaching students how to think and how to solve problems by retrieving for themselves any information they want to know. This book gives you a road-map for doing that and specifically doing that in our technology-based culture. More than just methods of looking up information, this book provides problems – and shows you (the mentor) how to guide your students through and into the process of good problem-solving methodologies. Taking this approach will take some time and effort for the teacher/mentor – reading through and setting up the structure – but the benefits for our children are numerous.

    Starting with the basics of why (problem-based learning) and how (fusing the internet with problem-based learning), the coaching plans are outlined, session-by-session (engagement, investigation, solution building, and debriefing) – 14 sessions total. There is a wealth of how-to information here – you'll get an education yourself in problem-solving methodologies. It's very practical, right down to the problem logs and assessment rubrics. Problem Logs are a key component – the blueprints that "walk" your student through the problem-solving process. These are step-by-step reproducible worksheets that can be employed with any problem and are used particularly with the eight problem units provided with this text. To give you a better idea of what we're talking about, here are the Problem Logs:

    • Getting Started. (What do I know? What are my hunches? Fact or opinion?)
    • Searching the Internet. (Using web addresses to visit the web. Is the information relevant; reliable?)
    • Following links. (What's the answer to our question?)
    • Putting the Puzzle Together.

    • What is the Problem? (The big question. Rules to follow)
    • Planning Your Internet Search. (What do I need to know? Doing a search. Did I find new pieces to the puzzle?)
    • How Should the Problem be Solved? (What are the possibilities? Both good and bad things can happen. What is the best thing to do?)
    • Thinking Back.

    The eight problem solving units are where the "rubber meets the road" so to speak. This is where the student begins (by using the Problem Logs) and you begin your work as coach/mentor through the process. There are four units for grades 3-4 and four for grades 5-6; each representing a 14 session problem-solving process. Can the Food Pyramid Help? is an example of a younger unit while How Am I Going To Survive Until I'm Rescued? is an older unit. Each unit provides an overview for the teacher, problem definition, unit objective (in various subject areas) and then unique features of the investigation along with some websites specific to the problem.

    As mentioned before, this process will take some preparation work by the coach/mentor but the book – written for the teacher – is designed to hold your hand through the process. The very real-life benefits to our children can be counted as both problem-solving skills and research skills – a win/win. 150 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    Boys' Life is a classic part of the Boy Scouts program – the magazine has been around for over 100 years now. As a Cub Scout, I always looked forward to it coming in the mail: getting to read stories of adventure, how-to and First Aid articles, and general guy-stuff (oh, and the comics of course). The Boys' Life Book of Outdoor Skills combines decades of Boys' Life content into a single volume, with fantastic articles on equipment, survival, how-to, and stories of Scouts in action. It's a literal treasure trove! This is one book that the Scouts in your family (or any other boys) will read over and over again. Not only is it just fun to read, it's fully illustrated (all of the full-color articles are left as they were originally published in magazine format) and super practical as well. There are articles about how to build your own canoe or snow cave (or indoor home rifle range, if you feel so inclined), how to treat heat exhaustion or hypothermia; stories about scouts surviving in the wilderness or climbing the Grand Teton, and of heroic rescues after bear attacks or fire accidents. There's always been something special about the Scouting program; it's had a huge impact in helping boys gain the skills they need in their lives as men. Plus, what boy doesn't like learning how to rough it in the wild and use knives and fire? 192 pgs., hc. – Chad
