       Learn strength of character and virtue from one of God’s spiritual giants-Daniel. Each of the 24 lessons includes scripture reading, writing activities in the form of copywork or looking definitions and short commentary. While there is brief unlined, space for responses, a notebook or journal would be beneficial to record responses and additional prayers or thoughts. Required are a KJV Bible and Noah Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language.

    Another fascinating Bible history book by Ruth Beechick, author of Adam and His Kin. The product of much research and knowledge of ancient history and the Bible, it is suitable for teens or adults as a short course in ancient history. But, more than that, it is the story of truth - and how that truth has come to be perverted through history. It is the story of righteous and wicked men and kings. It is the story of civilizations - how and where they sprung up and flourished. It's the story of our roots. The historical and literary evidences of Biblical truth, the tracing of the recorded truth that eventually became our Bible, and the chronology of our "family tree" are masterfully woven together in this extremely readable text. Throughout Ruth's narrative, we can see the origins of false religions and flawed world views. Taking us through Genesis 1-11, it contains six units, corresponding to the "books" written by the earliest recorders of history. Using the King James translation, each unit begins with the actual Scripture to read. A Scripture study includes activities to help students understand the reading - activities such as drawing maps, listing genealogies, memorizing key verses, noting specific words used, comparing the reading to other Scriptures, etc. Topic studies address particular references in the Scripture reading and expand on them, using historic, literary, and linguistic sources. Ruth's many insights and expert compilation of information make these studies engrossing. Each topic is followed by questions that can be answered orally or in writing. Further study has the student do a little research and reporting of his own. In these sections, source books and other readings are recommended. There are also suggestions for several correlating writing projects. If using the study with several students, you may want to assign each a different one. Other types of activities are also included, varying by unit. The book is recommended for use independently for junior high and up, or for a family study with children of all ages. I know my eight-year-old would enjoy this study as much (or more) as my older children. I would be surprised if parents purchasing this book as an independent course for their older children didn't end up reading it from cover to cover themselves.

     This fun resource goes beyond what you know about famous scientists and reveals some quirky, interesting facts about them. Find out little known facts about Zhang Heng, Ibn Sina, Galileo, Isaac Newton, William and Caroline Herschel, Charles Darwin, Louis Pasteur, Ivan Pavlov, George Washington Carver, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Edwin Hubble, Barbara McClintock, Grace Murray Hopper, Rachel Carson, Chien-Shiung Wu, James D. Watson and Francis Crick, and Jane Goodall. You will learn that Galileo had a giant ego and if you disagreed with him you were an "idiot"; Isaac Newton's father was illiterate and died before he was born (and his mother frowned on education); Albert Einstein adored music and Edwin Hubble was a terrible driver. Barbara McClintock studied genetics in conjunction with corn, but didn't particularly like corn. She preferred Godiva chocolate! At the end of each chapter are 2-3 interesting trivia related to that person. Please note that while interesting, some personal details about these scientists’ lives may be offensive to conservative families - a parent may wish to preview the content first. 96 pgs, pb. ~ Donna
