    Two dogs and a cat - three loyal friends. When the animals' owners have to leave for an extended length of time, Luath, Bodger, and Tao go to live with John Longridge until their family returns. During this time John leaves to go and stay at a cabin for two or three weeks with his brother, and his neighbors are going to care for the animals. John leaves on his trip, and the animals, sensing the fact that they are alone, set off for home by instinct. A misunderstanding leads Mrs. Oakes to the belief that he has taken the animals with him, and so she is unaware that the animals are on their own. Luath, the younger dog, is the unspoken leader of the group, leading the other animals straight west and towards home. Bodger is a much older dog, and his already weary body tires fast. Tao, the cat, helps Luath look out for Bodger against the many trials they will face in the open wilderness. Are the three friends up against more than they can handle in their nearly 300 mile journey across the Ironmouth Range in Canada? - Mel

    Get a "dog's-eye-view" into one of America's greatest journeys of discovery. Seaman is the Newfoundland dog that accompanies Lewis and Clark and the men of the Corps of Discovery across the great interior of the United States to find the Northwest Passage to the Pacific. This historical account was written by Roland Smith as he took excerpts out of Captain Lewis' diary and then creatively retold the events from Seaman's viewpoint. This book is thoroughly researched and wonderfully creative. As we all know, dogs see, hear, and smell things we can never even dream of perceiving. Thus, who better to give additional insight to the adventures of Lewis and Clark than their canine friend who was there every step of the way? 287 pgs, pb. – elise

    Subtitled "Discovering the Enchantment of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-Earth", Hobbit Journey will enthrall Tolkien's serious fans. Tolkien expert Matthew Dickerson presents an in-depth, scholarly analysis of Tolkien's Middle-Earth writings. He shows how a Christian worldview and themes are prevalent in Tolkien's works. Dickerson explores the topics of ethics, war, wisdom, free will, stewardship, and salvation as he analyzes and relates these themes to characters and events in Tolkien's books. This thoroughly researched book is not light reading, but sophisticated literary criticism for the advanced student or diehard Tolkien fan. 260 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

     Like the You Choose Interactive History Adventure series, children read the story and make choices that will affect the outcome. In Christmas Crossroads, they may start in the fields watching the flocks. After the angels appear, do they go to Bethlehem or stay with the flocks? If they are traveling with the magi, do they go to see Herod as he has asked? This is one of those books that can be read again and again to see the different paths each time.

    Learn about the First Thanksgiving from Squanto's point of view. Squanto tells how he was captured by the British in 1614 and sold into slavery in Spain, but then returned to the New World several years later to become a friend and guide to the colonists. Squanto taught the colonists how to plant crops, hunt and survive in the wilderness; without his help, the first Thanksgiving would never have been possible. The book contains beautiful illustrations in earth tones, and a glossary of Native American terms appears in the back. By Joseph Bruchac. Illus. by Greg Shed. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Freewriting is when you let a student write about a topic (either of their choosing or a prompt) without having to think about sentence structure, spelling, punctuation and other such finicky details. The idea is to get them writing! It sounds simple, right? This format still can make a reluctant writer nervous though. I would call this a book of guided freewriting which sounds counter-intuitive, but it works! Each of the 10 writing exercises begins with a few short paragraphs for the student to read. The topics in this book are all from ancient Greece: some are about people, others are myths and tales. You are then given a writing suggestion related in some way to what you just read. These are pretty short and open-ended. The actual "assignment" includes bullet points that you should have in your writing. These are pointed questions about the task you were given, dialogue prompts, and then the writer is told to incorporate their 5 senses into their writing. You are supposed to set a timer for 15 minutes and write! Space is provided in this workbook, but there are no lines (perhaps part of the "free" writing). I would write on other paper so I could see the assignment page, rather than flip back and forth. This style of writing can be a stress reliever for a middle or high school age student who is either reluctant to write at all or a student who is a perfectionist. It could really help that kiddo to let their ideas flow! I liked the themes and found them to be things most older kids would have thoughts about, even if they had never heard the stories before. The 10 lessons could be done once a week for a quarter or even daily for 2 weeks as an exercise in letting ideas flow before beginning more structured writing instruction. Includes Christian content.

    The attack on Pearl Harbor by Japanese planes in 1941 is what drew America into going to war. Shortly after this attack, something that would be unheard of today began to happen. West Coast Japanese Americans were being rounded up and relocated to prison camps. This book focuses on Yuki, a young Japanese girl, and her experiences during this trying time. Her story (based on the author's own experiences) tells of the consequences of prejudice and the capacities of the human spirit to thrive even in the face of such tough obstacles. This book was first published in 1971 and is now a much-loved, widely read classic. Pb, 149 pgs. – elise

    The things that Lisa, her older sister Ruth, her younger sister Annie, and her mother had to endure is incredible. They lived in Berlin in 1938 when the Nazis were first starting to take over. Lisa's father, who is referred to as Papa, decides in the very beginning of this story to leave Germany and establish a foundation for his family in America. Meanwhile, life in Berlin is getting more dangerous for Jewish people, and as the threat of war is turning into reality, Papa sends a letter over, suggesting that his wife and their daughters flee to Switzerland, masking the emigration as a vacation. Mother is allowed to bring only 10 marks per person with her, which puts her in a very challenging financial situation. She keeps Annie with her and is forced to send Ruth and Lisa to a camp where there are other children in similar situations or without parents at all. The girls don't get enough to eat and don't have the kind of care that all children need. After they visit their mother, she senses this and takes them out of the camp. Pretty soon, all three girls are sent to live with three different families in Zurich, where they are well-nourished and thrive. Mother collapses from pneumonia and spends this time in the hospital. She recovers and the family is on their way to being reunited with their father, whom they have not seen for nearly a year by this time, as he has been saving for their tickets to America. Sonia Levitin tells a touching, and very real story, that I am sure was sadly not uncommon.
