    An excellent resource! This book was designed especially for students before they begin high school. The subtitle is "Stuff You Need to Know, and Mistakes You Need to Stop Making, Before You Step Foot into High School." It's an awesome book designed to ensure students know some relatively basic facts before they hit high school. For example, they should know the order of the planets, most of the more familiar presidents (although if they want to learn them all, they can do that here too), a basic timeline of world and U.S. events, how to find the diameter, radius and circumference of a circle, how to make subjects and verbs agree in sentences, at least five major artists and musicians, and the most famous works of some of the most famous authors in history. It sounds like a lot of information - and it is - but this book is in no way overwhelming. It is very non-threatening, with only about 70 pages including the introduction and other informational pages. The size isn't the only thing that is non-threatening -the text is written in very personable, often entertaining style from an author who doesn't want to bore students or surround them with long definitions, but really wants them to learn the basics to create a good foundation for their more advanced schooling. He speaks not in a know-it-all tone, but in a this-is-great-stuff-to-know manner. The book starts at the very broadest of issues, the universe, and works its way down to the smaller things like individual topics and famous people. Each topic is usually presented on a two-page spread, although some (like World History) take up a little more space. Here is a sampling of the spread and type of knowledge given on each topic, using the universe pages as an example. A column on the left side of the pages gives a brief overview to what we can know about the universe, and then we move on to "stuff you should know about your universe." This section provides a basic yet in depth summary of the universe, with important terms in bold. These bolded terms are Earth, the Solar System, star, galaxy, Milky Way, cluster, and light year. Enough information is given to students about each of them to give them a basic knowledge and understanding, sufficient but not enough to write a research paper about. The right hand page covers constellations, good terms to know such as black holes, nebula, and supernova, and finally a small section titled "Don't Make These Mistakes Anymore!" which tells students the difference between astronomy and astrology, what exactly a light year is (it is not a measure of time, but a distance), that the Earth and other planets revolve around the sun, which moves with the entire galaxy as it turns and moves through space, and what exactly an astronomical unit is. This same format (although it varies by topic) is used throughout the book to provide students with an excellent base for further learning. I know this is kind of a long list, but I want you to be able to see how complete this book actually is, so here is the table of contents: the Universe, the Solar System, Earth, Continents and Oceans, Countries and Cities, Islands and Mountains, Lakes and Rivers, U.S. Geography, Canadian Geography, World History, American History, U.S. Presidents, Canadian History, Math, Science, Writing and Grammar, Art and Music History, Literature, Major Religions, Languages, People, and Life and Miscellaneous. I think every pre-highschooler should definitely have access to and read a copy of this book, as well as any high school student or even beyond who would enjoy keeping a copy of the basics around.

    The explorers from the Forbidden Island and Forbidden Desert are in for a truly electrifying experience! Played in the same style as the aforementioned games, Forbidden Sky takes players to a mysterious floating platform as an electrical storm rages around them. Each turn, players move and reveal a “platform tile” to an adjacent space. These tiles have a variety of symbols on them: circuits, capacitors, lightning rods. Additionally, gears, teleporters, wind shelters, and Faraday Cages provide other benefits to players located on that tile. After each player takes his or her turn, they reveal Storm Cards. These cards inflict a variety of dangerous effects on players, such as pushing them across the map (and damaging their rope in the process), causing lightning to strike (injuring players), changing wind direction, and intensifying the ever-deadly storm.

    The goal is to find the Launch Pad and escape by connecting the Rocket to lightning rods and capacitors. Lightning rods and capacitors are built by connecting like-symbols on tiles; they can then be attached to the launch pad via “wires” forming a complete circuit from one half of the launch pad – through the lightning rods and capacitors – to the other half of the Launch Pad. When this circuit is complete, the Rocket lights up. But remember: all players must be on the launch pad when the Rocket lifts off, or at least one explorer will be eating lightning for breakfast! Additionally, if a player dies, breaks their rope, or the storm becomes too intense, all players lose. If you like the cooperative challenge of the other games in the Forbidden series, don’t miss out on this exciting entry! For 2-5 players. ~ 60-minute playtime.
