    Players get to be fishermen in this game, complete with a bunch of rubbery worms and fish markets waiting to buy your catch. Players use their worms to catch fish from the "ocean" and have three things they can do with the fish: put it in one of their boats, throw it back, or sell it to the appropriate market. Each fish is also capable of granting a wish. So what do you do with your fish? Placing it in your boat means that you can not use the wish, but can save the fish for a time when the market will give the best price. Throwing the fish back is the only way to use the wish, which is pictured on the card. There are many kinds of wishes: bonus money, spoilage, extra boats, special fish sales, or moving one of the "buyers" to a different market. When fishing, players can see the available wishes and choose strategically. Players can also sell a fish right away. There are 7 markets that will always buy a fish for $2, though the markets which have one or more of the "buyers" mentioned above increase your profit - so keep track of them. Players with the majority of fish in a market that becomes full will score even more bonus money. Players keep track of their money on the outside of the board; the player with the most money at the end wins. 2-5 players, with game duration of about 40 minutes.

Several writing prompts are included per page, and students can write as much as they wish about a topic or complete an assigned amount of words or pages. Prompts are broken up into eight sections. The All About Me section includes prompts like "Would you rather be a baby, a kid, a teenager, or an adult? Why?" and "If you could add a holiday that everyone in the country would celebrate, what would it be, when would it be, and how would everyone celebrate?" The Family Relationships section has prompts like "What have you learned about cooking from your parents? Do you think you'll be a good cook?" and "Describe a time when you and your siblings worked together." The Friendship section has questions like "How do you make a new friend?" and "If you could have anyone as your best friend, who would you choose and why?" The School section includes prompts like "What do you remember most about being in kindergarten?" and "What is your favorite subject in school and why? Is it the easiest subject for you? What is your least-favorite subject and why?" The Academics section has prompts like "If you could visit another planet, which one would you choose, and what do you think you might see?" and "What is one talent or skill that you have? How can you turn it into a career?" The Character Education and Safety section has prompts like "Some boys and girls choose to be mean to each other. What do you think causes them to be that way?" and "If you and a friend got lost in the woods while hiking, what would you do?" The Points to Ponder/Problem Solving section includes prompts like "If you were the leader of your country, what would you change about your country?" and "Would you rather be a famous movie star or a doctor? Why?" The last section is titled Story/Fiction Narrative and includes prompts like "You have been offered a round trip ride in a time machine and can travel any distance into the past. Where would you want to go? Describe the trip." Whether you work through the book and use all the prompts or just select the ones that appeal to you, this book is very useful at finding simple writing topics. Reproducible, 80 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Authored by Joanna Cole of Magic School Bus fame, this short illustrated book explains to young readers how babies are made and born. The book doesn't go into any detail on conception, simply saying that the child began as one little cell. "Half of the cell came from your mommy, and the other half came from your daddy." The illustration shows a couple each holding half of a construction paper heart. The book ends with a list of suggestions for parents on how to answer children's questions on birth. All in all, it's a sweet, simple story that shares the very basics with young children. If you're looking for a religiously neutral introduction to the subject, this is a good one.

    This classic text introduces students to all aspects of ancient Greek society. Each chapter covers a different topic, including the People and Land (geography), Homer, City-States, Sparta, Wars with Persia, Religion, Games, Education, Alexander, and more. Plenty of captioned black and white photos, maps, diagrams, and illustrations appear throughout the text. For example, there is an illustrated page explaining the names and functions of twenty-two different types of pottery that Greeks used in their everyday lives; a floor plan of a typical Greek house; and photographs of ancient coins. The text is engaging and readable, with excerpts from classic Greek literature and an anecdotal, "storytelling" quality that makes you feel like you are witnessing the events unfold. An index in the back of the book contains information on the Greek alphabet and language, a list of discussion questions for each chapter, a timeline/date chart, and a list of sources for further reading. Index included. By H.D. Amos & A.G.P. Lang. 224 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa
