    There's something rather touching about this tribute to a mom's reading program. When a young man (Nathaniel Bluedorn) who has spent years listening to family read-alouds takes the time to gather those books into a useful resource for other homeschooling families, one has to respect the impact one mom/family has had. If that's not enough to convince you of the value of family read-alouds, he now starts the book in its expanded and revised 5th edition by addressing the topics "Why Read?" and "How to Read Aloud."

    Classifying 400 Classic Books for Children, the arrangement is alphabetical by authors with a "by subject" cross reference in the back. Nathaniel notes that family conservatism is the reason some authors did not make the list. Icons denote the time and geographical setting of the story and the publication date of the book. In addition to a short summarization of the plot, the books are also rated according to reading level (language and plot) – easy (all ages), more complex (ages 10+), and more mature (ages 13+). Occasional cartoons punctuate the listings, and the book's handy size (4.5" x 9") means it can be easily slipped into a purse or car storage pocket so it will be available for library trips or potential garage sale purchases. ~ Janice

    This anthology contains twenty-five of the world's greatest speeches. It presents the speeches chronologically, beginning with Pericles' Funeral Oration (5th Century BC) and ending with Barack Obama's Inaugural Address (2009). Each speech is identified by its name, speaker, and date. Short introductory sections place the speeches in historical context. Some of the speeches included are Martin Luther's "Before the Diet of Worms," Patrick Henry's "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!" and Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream." There are speeches by George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Mother Theresa, Ronald Reagan, and others (please note that Harvey Milk and "The Hope Speech" are included). Use this book to supplement your studies of specific time periods or events in history, or be inspired by the words of these great leaders as you prepare for speech class.

    Subtitled "A Basic Worldview Catalog." It's a very appropriate label since author James Sire is giving explanation and definition to the different worldviews. He puts the information in a logical sequence that progresses through Christian theism, deism, naturalism, nihilism, existentialism, Eastern pantheistic monism, New Age philosophy, postmodernism, and - newly included in the 5th edition - Islamic theism. Sire has refined his definition and thinking about worldviews since the book was first published. One of the most significant changes is in the area of postmodernism. We used the first edition of this book my freshman year of college - 30 years ago! At that time the idea of postmodernism was a term tossed around by philosophers and theologians, but it was not known to the average person. It is now a worldview which is prevalent in today's society. Every day we hear comments such as, "Who are you to say that someone else is wrong?" "If it's right for you, then there's nothing wrong with your choice," and "Every worldview has its own story, and each one is as credible as the other." He has added the chapter on Islamic theism (written by Winfried Corduan) because of Islam's growing influence in the world since 9/11.

    The first chapter of the book presents the definition of a worldview and then elaborates on each part of the definition. He presents each worldview in light of 7 basic questions. These questions are: What is prime reality – the really real? What is the nature of external reality – the world around us? What is a human being? What happens to a person at death? Why is it possible to know anything at all? How do we know what is right and wrong? What is the meaning of human history? Each chapter 2-10 examines a major worldview and explores possible answers to each of the questions. Sire evaluates each worldview on its own and then does some comparisons with other worldviews.

    Sire comes full circle in his conclusion. He begins with Christian theism and concludes with the same worldview, "Being a Christian theist is more than just an intellectual worldview; it is to be personally committed to the infinite-personal Lord of the universe." You might be asking yourself why you would want to read a book like this. The short answer is that we need to be able to understand and evaluate the various worldviews of our pluralistic society. 293 pgs, pb. ~ Donna
