    Rich and smooth, this waterproof India ink is fun for pen and ink drawing, calligraphy, brushwork, or mixed media washes. The 2 oz. wide lid jar is ideal for dipping pen nibs and practicing your calligraphy. The opaque, permanent ink goes on strong and works well with technical pens and airbrushes too. Ink is water-based, non-toxic and made in the USA. However, use with caution, as it does not wash easily off of hands or out of clothes. ~ Emily

    Subtitled “From Elizabeth the First to the Forty-Niners,” this volume of Story of the World takes another good-sized bite out of world history. The forty-two chapters are told in a similar style to the first two volumes, with each chapter divided up into shorter readings of a couple pages each, just enough to grab most children’s attention and keep it until they begin to tire of history, and their minds begin to wander. And Susan Wise Bauer’s exciting and engaging way of putting the “story” back into history, chances are they may even be begging for more! Like the other volumes, she also does a terrific job of taking the typical “European” slant out of her telling of world history, while incorporating events and people from all over the world in her chronological presentation, giving children a much more “complete” picture than they would likely otherwise get. As with the other volumes, this book is not meant to cover everything in the time period, but to hit the high points and serve as a springboard to explore people, events, and eras more thoroughly as desired. Topics covered in Volume 3 include Japanese warlords, colonies in the “New World”, spread of slavery, the “Sun King” of France, English in India, imperialist China, revolutionary war, Captain Cook’s explorations, age of industrialism in Europe, Napoleon, French Revolution, Lewis & Clark, Mexican independence, Africa and colonialism, the Opium Wars, the Gold Rush, and much, much more.

    The text is available in a paperback or spiral-bound version. The activity book is a bound paperback.- Jess

    India Opal Buloni is a lonely, 10-year old preacher's daughter who has just moved to Naomi, Florida, with her father. She doesn't have any friends yet, but she is very independent and likable. Right away she happens upon a dog in the grocery store and takes him into her home and her heart, naming him "Winn-Dixie". The dog seems to mark a turning point, and soon after the adoption she begins making friends and getting to know people. He seems to have a knack for making people like him, despite his less than attractive appearance. India makes friends, gets a job, and starts to care about all the people around her… all because of Winn-Dixie. A Newbery Honor award winner.

    A delightful story about a little boy in grand clothes; fierce tigers who are talked out of eating a little boy when given pieces of his clothing; fighting tigers whirring so fast around a tree leaving only melted butter and pancakes. Set in India, this story might be familiar to those who have been around awhile by another name, but has now found its rightful setting and comes alive with winsome illustrations. Small (6.5” x 6.5”), 70 pg paperback ~ Janice

    Pam Conrad brings you this gripping log of Pedro de Salcedo, who was aboard the great voyage with Christopher Columbus from August 3rd of 1492 to February 14th of 1493. Pedro is a young man of only fourteen, and it is his first time away from home. The captain quickly makes him a sort of right-hand man. Pedro watches how intensely the men doubt Columbus from the beginning. The day before they finally touch land, Columbus promises they will turn around home. As fate would have it, the next day they land in a place Columbus names San Salvador. Here they gain experience with the natives, who are extremely docile and generous. In each place they land on, the people gradually become unfriendly - perhaps some words of caution were spread? Soon enough, the entire crew realizes they have not landed in India and there are no spices or silks or pearls. In fact, nobody except Columbus cares about anything except heading home to Spain at this point. After the sinking of the Santa Maria, some of the men board the Nina to go home, and the others are left behind to start a Spanish settlement in the New World. Pedro fears he may not ever return home. On the last day at sea, he encases a last letter into a barrel and throws it out to the ocean so that if it ever reaches his home, his mother should know that he loves her and she should pray for his soul. This recounting is sometimes suspenseful, troubling, and mystifying, but at all times it is engaging.

    Genevieve Foster is well known for her distinctive approach to teaching history. Firmly believing that history is drama, Miss Foster presents an engaging narrative of William Penn's life as well as those of his contemporaries throughout the world. Part one begins in 1660 and introduces us to William Penn, how he became a Quaker, his quest for religious freedom and how he received Pennsylvania. We then learn of his contemporaries including: the journeys of three French explorers: Marquette, Joliet and LaSalle; Louis XIV, the King of France, who ruled for seventy two years; mogul emperors of India and the Taj Mahal; the great age of Science (Sir Isaac Newton and Edward Halley); K'ang-Hse the great Manchu ruler of China and Peter the Great of Russia. We also revisit William Penn and learn of the many disasters that he experienced and how he came to return to England for his final days. Black and white illustrations, SC, 192 pgs. ~ Deanne

    Parallel to SOTW, V2, this continuation of Susan Wise Bauer's adult level, readable world history is a "masterful narrative of the middle ages, when religion became a weapon for kings all over the world." Chronicling world history (not just European), the great conflicts of Europe are linked to power struggles in India and Asia and well-known figures stand side-by-side with others who were equally powerful but less well known to us. 745 pgs, hc. ~ Janice

     Divided into seven chronological sections with dates arranged in columns according to geographic location, this vibrantly illustrated book helps children (and parents!) “connect the dots,” putting worldwide events into their historical period. For example, did you know that Homer composed the Iliad and Odyssey in Europe during 800 BC, while the Hindu religion spread into Southern India that same year? Or that during the American Civil War (1860-1865 AD), the World’s first underground railway was built in London (1863), and Italy was unified? There is so much to learn in this fascinating book! Timeline begins in 10,000 BC and ends 1996. Beautifully illustrated. 128 pgs, hc. ~ Deanne

    …A Look at Languages from A to Z. Colorful illustrations introduce children to exotic locations around the world. Your travel host is Kate, the daughter in a missionary family, and her parrot friend Mack. Learn about places, languages, animals, religions, tribes, clothing and more fun facts. Add this to any geography unit study, or a unit on missionaries or world cultures! It's also just a fun read! I think a 2nd grader could read this alone, but a 5th grader would enjoy the story too. Some of the exotic locales include Arop, Bwisi, Catalan (sign language), Daakaka, Eastern Apurimac Quecha, Farefare, Ge and more all in alphabetical order until you get to Zinza! I love the stories about Kate's family traveling and sharing the love of God. sc, 104 pp, 10" x 8" ~ Sara

    Many great people and many great times throughout the history of the world have been remembered through speeches. It's easy to think of some of these in the modern times – Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream," Richard Nixon's speech to astronauts on the moon, John F. Kennedy's inaugural address, and Winston Churchill's "Their Finest Hour," for example. Perhaps not so easy to name are some of those speeches that have held their place in time throughout the centuries – such speeches as Julius Caesar's "On the Treatment of the Conspirators," Socrates on his condemnation and death, Danton's "To Dare Again, Ever to Dare!" and Martin Luther before the Diet of Worms. Divided into seven parts, the 292 speeches in this book are drawn from: Earlier Times (Ancient Greece and Rome, Great Britain and Ireland, the early United States, Canada, South America, South Africa, India, and China), Recent Times (US domestic affairs, world affairs and WWII, and US affairs and WWII), Modern Times (US government, international affairs, and the United Nations), Informal Speeches (of the last two centuries), Important Speeches of the Sixties, Speeches by Black Americans, and Speeches from the period 1974 – 1997. From Pericles and Isocrates to Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Ronald Reagan, and the Earl of Spencer, these speeches are a great resource for history, inspiration, quotations, and much more. Speeches are indexed by topic, by nationality, and by speaker for ease of reference. ~ Zach
