    So, why are we offering another map outline book? Well, this one is different from the others, and we just couldn't decide which was "better", because they both would serve a slightly different user. The book begins with a Mercator Projection map of the world, followed by 45 different maps of individual countries or small clusters of countries (too many to list here). Unlike Maps, there is only one, unlabeled, map for each title, and waterways are clearly shown. An inset map of the region is included, with map's location darkened for easy reference. Also included on each page is the area covered by the map in square miles. The U.S. map is marked with state boundaries and waterways. Maps for each of the 50 states appear alphabetically, again with waterways and square miles shown. A U.S. map is inset on each page, clearly showing the location of that state in the U.S. by shading. Basically, there are significantly more country-specific maps in this book, helpful if you need more detailed maps of smaller regions. For example, Germany is its own map in this book whereas it's lumped in a "Northern Europe" map in Maps. In fact, Northern Europe is broken into about four different maps in Blank Map Outlines. None of the maps are labeled, however, so you'll need to refer to an atlas for labeling. The other major difference is the inclusion of waterways (rivers and lakes) in this outline book.

    As you might have already guessed from the evocative title, this is a vocabulary book centered on Greek and Latin root words. There are 36 units that can be used one per week or in concentration. It's a fun, interactive type of book and a good precursor to the more studious Vocabulary from Classical Roots series. Master word lists, along with their roots, are provided up front as a handy reference and summary. It includes several ideas for activities for each study. Every unit contains three reproducible pages for the student, introducing ten vocabulary words and tracing their definitions back to a common meaning. The pages are graphically stimulating and motivating to complete, rather than a dry, fill-in-the-blank presentation. I especially like the little symbol on the upper right-hand corner of each student page which gives a visual reminder of the root from which all these words spring. As an example, the first root studied is the Latin "foli," meaning "leaf." After students match the definitions to words printed on an assortment of leaf shapes, they make up sentences for each and, optionally, with string, tape, and a twig, make a foli mobile. The second student page for this unit is entitled "Comic Re-Leaf." It has a circle of cartoon visuals depicting the meaning of each vocabulary word with little pictures, characters, and word bubbles. In the center are the ten vocabulary words to write on each. For reinforcement, students then turn their paper over and write the definitions for the ten words from memory. The last page "Turn Over a New Leaf" presents news headlines incorporating the vocabulary words. Students have to write the first sentence of each news story, defining the vocabulary words. For example, the first sentence of a story for the headline "Unicorn Uncovers Unusual Unifoliate Under Uncle's Umbrella" might read, "Yesterday, a young unicorn playing in the park moved the umbrella of a family member only to find a rare species of plant having only one leaf." After this, the student is told to choose one of the headlines and illustrate it. This approach to learning vocabulary has something to offer for all learning styles, including the hands-on learner.

    This workbook gives students thorough practice in sentence diagramming so to "make sure that students are never confronted with a sentence structure that is unfamiliar to them", according to the authors. Each lesson in the workbook is laid out in a two-page spread, with the explanation for diagramming each new part with examples at the beginning, followed by exercises where the student must underline specific parts of sentences and diagram, create sentences to fill in blank diagrams, unscramble sentences and then diagram, and find mistakes in already diagrammed sentences and re-diagram them. Sentence parts studied include simple sentences, compound subjects and verbs, prepositional phrases, direct/indirect objects, modifiers, appositives, infinitives and infinitive phrases, clauses, participles/participal phrases, different types of sentences, and much more. Nicely well-rounded and easy-to-use diagramming worksheets don't bore children with long lists of sentences to diagram, but challenge other skills as well. Answers included. Please note that Book 1 is currently out of print. ~ Jess

    Have you ever wondered how much of the science-fiction world of Star Wars is based on real science? Through the 30+ experiments in this book, children will embark on a journey to discover the science of Star Wars, with activities inspired by the planets, creatures, droids, and technology from the films. Most experiments use easy to find items, although a 400x microscope is recommended for later experiments. One unique feature of this book is that the experiments are identified by difficulty level as well as material costs. Movie tie-ins, step-by-step directions and "secret" science explanations make this appealing to the science loving child or a science resistant Star Wars fan. A tremendous asset for upcoming science fairs or to add more engaging, hands-on learning to your day. Vibrantly illustrated. 126 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne
