    A laser blasts through the air and strikes a mirrored surface. Reflected at a 90 angle, it continues on, bouncing from one mirror to the next until coming to a dead stop on the non-mirrored surface of a playing piece. The triumphant strategist removes the "illuminated" piece from the board, while his opponent scrambles to ensure that the prize, his king, is safe, while endeavoring to adjust the mirrors to his advantage for his own attack. Your turn consists of moving one of your pieces either to an adjacent square or a quarter rotation in the same square, and then pressing the button to activate your laser. The idea is to move the angled mirrors in such a way as to "illuminate" your opponent's pieces (leaving fewer pieces he can move around to his advantage) and eventually strike his king. When you activate your laser, it can reflect off your pieces as well as your opponent's pieces, so all pieces in the laser's path need to be considered on your turn. The strategy requires a lot of careful planning, as you must activate your laser at the end of every turn whether you are ready to or not! The lasers for each player are located at opposite corners of the board. Zach

    Harold Bloom (originator of Bloom's Taxonomy, a hierarchy of learning) has selected the stories and poems in this anthology. Bloom does not accept the category of "Children's Literature" as he feels it implies stories have been dumbed down. He blends Kipling, Carroll, and Lear with Hawthorne, Gogol and Turgenev, all chosen to illuminate and entertain. He feels children often stop reading because they are not challenged by what they read. This anthology includes 41 stories (many quite short) and 83 poems, including 8 selections by Lewis Carroll. The writings are organized into four themed sections, one for each season. Most works are from the 19th century or earlier. Fantasy is represented in animal fables and fairy tales. Comedy is throughout. I loved reading Bloom's intro to the book. He is truly in love with the writing he has chosen for this collection. Some titles includes: the Wind and the Rain (Shakespeare,) A Crazy Tale (Chesterton,) the Remarkable Rocket (Wilde,) the Goose Girl (Bros Grimm,) the Stag Looking Into the Water (Aesop,) the Recessional (Saki,) the Red Shoes (Anderson,) the Eagle (Tennyson.) pb, 572pp. ~Sara

    This Bible story collection follows an extremely traditional and beautiful design externally: a distinctive, oversized, cloth-covered hardbound text with copper illumination. Well written key stories are relayed: 34 from the Old Testament and 34 from the New. I appreciate the depth of story communicated and the conversational, yet engaging tone. With Usborne, one might expect busy, brightly colored illustrations within the text. These, however, are muted water color and colored pencil and enhance the story rather than emphasize themselves. The gentle-colored, textured-looking pages also accentuate the story. Although aimed as a read-aloud for younger children, your upper elementary child will also enjoy reading these. A two-page illustrated map follows each Testament and 9 pages of alphabetized Who’s Who help identify main characters. A beautiful and meaningful keepsake! 191 pp, 8.5” x 11” hc. ~ Ruth

    The Student Text is fairly self-directed, written as a conversation to the student. Students are guided, step by step through learning about and responding to their reading. Each chapter covers one book in 6-9 lessons. The lessons combine instruction and workbook into one format so that students respond to questions as students read through the text. As they complete their study of the literature, students must evaluate the conflict "colliding worlds" (man vs. man; man vs. ideas, etc.) involved, complete the quizzes and survey, take a vocabulary "quizzola," and complete the final, culminating activity. An "If You Liked This Book" section includes a list of additional readings. 8.5" x 11" 285 pp, sc.
