    I met the author of this book at a home school convention and explained that I had tried and failed several times to learn to play the guitar. He showed me this book, which claims to teach you how to play over 30 worship songs on the guitar in just 12 weeks. The book starts with the basics: how to hold the guitar, how to position your hands, which strings are which and how to tune them. It then presents three basic (and easy) chords and launches you into an easy arrangement of Amazing Grace. It is exciting to quickly be able to strum a familiar tune that you and your family can sing along with. The book continues to present a couple of new chords every lesson (week) with several more songs that can then be added to your repertoire when those chords are mastered. This book is also nicely sprinkled with Bible verses and quotes from Godly people. On 3 -...A-maz-ing grace, how sweet... ~ Jerry

    "In 1814, we took a little trip, along with Col. Jackson, down the mighty Mississip." If you're like me that might be about all you know or can remember about the War of 1812. Our reasons for fighting it were obscure; what was accomplished is likewise vague. Wouldn't you like to know more? This unassuming little book proves there is a lot more; providing an overview of the war – causes, invasions, the war fronts, victories, and peace – and then a battlefield-by-battlefield guide. Looking at the various regions where war action took place, battlefield and historic sites are visited. Maps, aerial views, photos, and text – supplied in a colorful, heavy paper format – all help tell the story of each site. Particularly helpful are the Quick History inserts that serve as summaries. The Nearby and Noteworthy sections identify places you might want to include on a tour. The Don't Miss sections help prioritize. Written to be a handbook for those who want to tour the various sites and understand the bigger picture, the book, nevertheless, makes a good quick study of the war. It was important; it defined boundaries for two countries and impacted the history of three people groups – Americans, Canadians, and Native Americans. And, then, of course, it gave us our National Anthem. 128 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    This book does a marvelous job of recreating the trip to the New World on the Mayflower and showing exactly what it was like for the pilgrims. Using photographs taken aboard the Mayflower II (a true-to-life reproduction vessel built in 1957) with actors dressed in realist garb from the original voyage's era, the book shares the details of the journey. A little background on why the pilgrims were sailing, provisions they had to bring, delays and their eventual departure, the weather, various people who made the journey, the route taken and navigation of the time period, what daily life was like aboard the ship and special occurrences, how and where the pilgrims landed, and a little about what they did after they landed are all covered in an informative and interesting way. The accompanying photographs of the recreated journey really do bring the story to life and make it seem more real. This is an excellent supplement to your study of early American history and will really help students understand the details about this legendary voyage. By Plimoth Plantation (a living history museum that displays Mayflower II), 48 pgs, pb. ~Rachel

    This is a brand new series from Alfred. The obvious question would be, "How is this series different from Alfred's Basic Piano Course?" Well, there are many differences, from minor changes in the way concepts are introduced to more significant changes such as the fact that this course uses a "non-position" approach (meaning that it doesn't rely on specific fingers for specific keys). Some of the things that make this course unique are: 1) Students learn to name notes without having to correlate them with a position. 2) Bass clef is introduced first, as many students end up weaker in this area. 3) Rhythm is taught using multi-note patterns rather than single notes. 4) Ear training and sight reading are both integrated into the course. 5) Parents are utilized as a key to the success of their child. For additional information, visit www.premierpianocourse.com to learn more about what makes this program different.

    This course was developed to be comprehensive, appealing to students, and student, teacher, and parent-friendly. It features new music, attractive illustrations, and thoughtful organization. The lesson book is the main focus of the course. It covers note reading, sight reading, rhythm reading, and technical workouts accompanied by fun musical arrangements and colorful illustrations. An included CD holds all of the music at both performance speeds as well as slower practicing speeds. To complement the lesson book, there is a theory book which focuses on music theory, a performance book (also with a CD) offering additional music to play, and an at-home book which encourages parents to get involved in practice time by seeing what the child is working on and helping them review the concepts they've learned in between lessons. The books are clearly marked for simple use along with the lesson book. A set of flash cards to help with sight reading and learning music symbols and patterns is also included. All of the components are packaged in a vinyl, zippered storage case.

    Bring the beach home with you – literally! This kit allows you to take a pail & shovel to the beach to play with, and then some! Inside the sturdy bucket is some Plaster of Paris that you mix with water (easy to find at the beach.) You dig out a little area in the sand (like a dinner plate size,) place in some shells or other finds, pour in the plaster and let it set up. When you lift the hardened plaster, the sand is stuck to it and the shells are embedded! Write a date and location on the back and you have a unique memento of your vacation for years to come! ~ Sara

    If you can sing, you can learn! Sing 2 Learn is an audiovisual program that teaches foreign language to kids with catchy, appealing songs. Using a full immersion approach (no English), each course component contains 15 songs that teach basic vocabulary on an audio CD and DVD. The DVD's feature animated children going about their daily routines at home, in the neighborhood, and in school while the songs play. Subtitled lyrics appear in the target language so you can sing along (again, no English here). As students listen and sing, they learn and retain the vocabulary quicker than if they were merely studying a textbook. Repetition is the key!

    A songbook is included with each CD/DVD. It has lyrics to the 15 songs, both in the target language and with English words and phrases off to the side. Complete song translations are in the back. The CD and DVD store easily in vinyl pockets inside the back book cover. There is some general instruction how to use the program and what you can expect from your student as they work through the levels. (See our website for information on the topics covered at each level.). 52 pgs, pb.

    The Beginner level of the program is recommended for grades PK-2. No textbook is used at this level, as the emphasis is on auditory learning.

    Intermediate level 1 is intended for grades 3-4, and Intermediate levels 2 and 3 are for grades 5-6. These levels introduce more advanced vocabulary than the beginning levels, with the addition of a textbook component. (As of press time, we are unable to provide detailed information on the textbooks. However, according to the publisher, "Textbook and workbook exercises reinforce vocabulary and introduce grammatical patterns learned through songs and animations.")

    Each Combo set includes the song book, music CD and animated DVD for the relevant level. Textbooks are sold separately. ~Sara/Lisa
