     The true story of American independence will never grow old, as long as their remains a hunger for freedom in the souls of men...and this book tells that story well. Students of U.S. history will enjoy this illustrated book, for it tells the story of the long struggle for American independence and liberty in a concise and engaging manner. Beginning with some of the early efforts towards independence, such as the opposition to the stamp tax by men such as Patrick Henry, as well as the famous Boston Tea Party rebellion, the text proceeds to chronicle many of the major events that led the colonists to the place where they were willing to establish their own sovereign nation. This volume would be an excellent reference tool or unit study for middle school or junior-high level students who are studying the War for American Independence. 82 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    Nationally revered, this great document of our American freedoms has had quite the exciting life. Today it is protected by armed guards, twenty-four hour a day cameras, electronic monitors, and a sealed, bulletproof encasement containing argon to control humidity. However, that was not always the case. In this lavishly illustrated book, you will join in the adventures of the heart and soul of our nation: The Declaration of Independence. Carried by horseback, sailing vessel, mail truck, railroad car and even military tank, our Declaration of Independence has survived for more than two centuries of peace and devastating war. No effort has been too much to keep this esteemed document safe. Exciting true escapades give heroic testimony to the grit and determination of this great country and what she values most…freedom for all to pursue life, liberty and happiness. 48 pgs, hc ~Deanne

    Not just a course in logic, but also in critical reading, reasoning, and problem solving as well. This is not a course designed for independent study, but is interesting enough to enjoy working through with your students. (With 4 children in the appropriate age range, weââ‚™ve taken to using the supper table for our discussion-type lessons. It sure beats some of our less educational dinnertime chit-chat! This series is broad in scope and topics covered (see contents below). The books contain interesting real-life situations. A ââ‚Å"logicalâ₝ follow-up to Building Thinking Skills from the same publisher.

    With the goal of being self-explanatory, self-paced and self-contained, this course was written for the homeschooled student in mind. Free pronunciation recordings are available online in an mp3 format and an answer key is in the back of the book itself. Tests can be done by backing up to the previous lesson and having your student translate the exercises there. A parent can use the answer key to grade these, or have the student correct their own work. Students are encouraged to do 30 minutes a day rather than a longer session once or twice a week, but many of the lessons might take only15-20 minutes. This is a stripped down way to introduce your students to French. Each lesson is only a page long for the first 21 lessons and not much longer after that (1-3 pgs). You will cover basics of how to learn French such as pronunciation, gender, formal vs. informal language, some pronouns, beginner vocabulary, expressions which have a cultural element and other useful basics. While there is not enough content here for a full high school credit, after completing this book, your student would be ready for a first year high school level program having never had any other language instruction. This would also be a good option for an older elementary student or a middleschooler interested in French. Both Getting Started with French and Getting Started with Spanish are good ways for a student (and their parents) to see if they are really interested in the further study of a language. Helpful glossary in the back, 281 pp, sc, 8” x 11” ~ Sara

    An excellent unit to get children acquainted with a microscope - how to use it, and actual investigations with it. The World of the Microscope or the Complete Book of the Microscope (both by Usborne - see index) are highly recommended as basal resource books. Other resource books (list provided) should be obtained and available for reference. The unit requires a minimum of 42-48 days to complete. Activities look extremely interesting and the accompanying lab sheets are excellent - very thoughtfully constructed. Labs begin with the set up, use and clean up of the microscope. The next several labs teach children to make wet mounts, dry mounts, permanent mounts, and well mounts. Successive labs are spent using these skills to study a variety of things under the microscopic, from fibers to insect parts, with cells, plant parts, and simple cell animals in between. The book also contains vocabulary words, science supplier addresses and phone numbers, answers, and additional helpful tips about microscopes. Just looking through the unit makes me enthusiastic about using it - it looks like the best kind of learning - interesting and fun. I would guess that most children would thoroughly enjoy this adventure with a microscope - gaining invaluable skills for higher level science courses in the process. Children in the elementary grades would need some parental support to accomplish the study; older children could use it independently. Look into this one! 92 pages, paperback.
