    It all looks just like I remember it! Four trees full of small, stemmed cherries, bucket spots for picked cherries, and a spinner marked with 1, 2, 3, or 4 cherries plus a cherry-snatching bird and dog, and an upset bucket. A child doesn't even need to be able to count to ten to play this adorable "first" game. Play is simple and quick (about 15-30 minutes); just spin and follow the pictures, adding cherries from the tree to the bucket or putting them from the bucket back onto the tree. First one to get all his tree's cherries into his bucket wins. Three generations and counting in our family – I wonder how many future generations will play? For 2-4 Players.

    The Heavens truly do declare creation! I am always amazed when I look into the night sky. I wonder how anyone can look at the vastness and not believe in an awesome, powerful God. You can tell by the statement I've made that I have a Christian worldview. Dr. Jason Lisle discusses popular theories and ideas about the universe in light of worldview bias and what the Bible has to say. Big Bang theory, age of the universe, alien life and more are discussed using scripture to analyze. It is refreshing to read a book about astronomy that declares God's glory! Although he presents very detailed information, it is presented in a way that any person with a little knowledge of astronomy can understand. This is an attractive hardcover book with beautiful photographs and illustrations. Information is divided into 5 chapters titled The Splendor of God's creation; The Universe Confirms the Bible, The Age of the Universe, The Bible and Modern Astronomy, and War of the Worldviews. Endnotes give fine details not included in the main part of the text, and a glossary offers definitions of terms that may be new to you. You'll learn about nebula, star clusters, galaxies, planets, comets and much more from a Christian perspective.

    The Bible is the history book of the universe as well as the authoritative word of God. It has proven its accuracy repeatedly, and so it stands to reason that it would be accurate when it comes to the origin and age of the universe and the topic of the heavens. As Christians we need to understand how the Bible supports and explains phenomena we encounter in the realm of nature. This is more than a book about astronomy; it's about your worldview. ~ Donna

    Often, the most fascinating subjects can be found right outside our doors, and the changing seasons supply endless opportunities for investigation and observation of all of our "I wonder why that happens?" questions. In this hands-on activity book, author Janice VanCleave has rounded up 52 season-based scientific investigations, grouped by season, each linked to particular science phenomena that are related to that season. For example, in autumn, kids can make their own pinecone hygrometers to determine outdoor humidity, or compare sun and clock time with a sundial. Spring, on the other hand, is the perfect time to get an up-close look at the vein patterns on clover leaves, or to find the Big Dipper and Ursa Major in the sky at night. Each investigation is printed on a two-page spread, which features some related information about the topic, a fun fact, a simple investigation with step-by-step instructions, investigation results and explanations, a list of recommended books for further reading, and an extension activity. Like the author's other books, the activities are well-laid out, require a few simple materials, and offer clear explanations that children can easily understand. These activities in particular are geared to younger students, and are typically short and exciting to correlate with younger children's attention spans. As an addition to your regular science curriculum, or just for fun, there are lots of interesting topics from all branches of science to choose from here, as well as opportunities for additional reading/exploration. - Jess

    Once again, Klutz has come out with a truly exceptional arts and crafts kit. Paper twirling, also known as paper filigree or paper quilling, is a lesser known paper craft that has been around for over 500 years (I have to admit, I had never heard of paper twirling before, but the simplicity of the craft and the amazing results you get makes me wonder why a product like this wasn't available earlier). You simply curl strips of paper with the twirling wand and glue them to make assorted objects. Included in the Twirled Paper kit are: a book with project suggestions, well over 100 multi-colored paper strips (24" x 1/8"), a twirling wand, pin board, toothpicks, glue, and wiggle eyes. A handy storage box is also included.

    The huge variety of objects, all aesthetically pleasing, you can make from simple paper coils is absolutely amazing. Although the book provides many creative ideas such as assorted bug/insect pencil toppers, caterpillars, birds, fish, flowers, letters of the alphabet, etc.; don't limit yourself to these. Once you master the many basic shapes introduced (teardrop, wing, eye, slug, gumdrop, tulip, moon, arrow, duck foot, triangle, square, diamond, and rectangle), the possibilities are limited only by your imagination. ~ Enh

    I cannot tell you how many flap books I’ve encountered over the years with missing or torn cardboard flaps. Not with this flip book! Your babies and toddlers will love its cloth pages and crinkling and squeaking flaps, as well as the hidden jungle animals, rocket ships, and birds. All the materials feels very durable, and the flaps are stitched on. Read this book with your child at home, leave it in the car, or bring it with you anywhere you go! Washing machine safe. Comes with a convenient plastic carrying case.-Emily

    As a child, the travel map we used had a picture atlas on the exterior. I spent so much time pouring over that cover that I still remember, as a result, which states produce oil. Here’s an opportunity to provide that experience for your elementary children. The actual atlas is in the first 24 pages. The remaining pages are filled with over 350 stickers to place in the appropriate atlas location. Children can easily find the correct location by finding the “shadowed” picture of the sticker. But it’s not just pictures here! Each map has information and details regarding animals, culture and geographical locations in small, clear print. Maps include one of the world; Western and Eastern Europe; North and South Africa; Western and Eastern Asia; North and Central America; South America; Australasia and Oceania; the Antarctic and Antarctica. End the book with a brief world quiz to test your new knowledge. Once done, you’ll have a picture atlas to continually use! Just wonderful! 9 3/8” x 12”, 34 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    A creative, interactive, hands-on approach to vocabulary! What better way to retain the learning of new words? Using index cards, a file box, and a good dictionary, this approach is a welcome departure from the typical workbook fare. And, subtitled: Help for Reading, Writing, Spelling and S.A.T. Scores, it's obvious from looking at this book that it would, indeed, do just that! How? By teaching the roots of the English language found in Greek and Latin. Since the majority of our words are rooted in these classical languages, mastering these roots is a key that will open the door to understanding a myriad of words! The creative activity suggestions in this book could become the basis for wonderful unit studies as well.
