    This unique atlas explores American history through 20 significant journeys of the past. Children will voyage across the Atlantic with Christopher Columbus, accompany Daniel Boone on his trek to cut a trail into Kentucky, experience the gold rush with Dame Shirley, travel the Underground Railroad to freedom with Big Joe Bailey, and return to America after the Vietnam War with a Vietnamese family who helped America during the war, all in the pages of this book. Each page holds an enthralling account of that expedition and the history surrounding it told through the words of a specific person on the journey. Colorful maps outline the paths traveled, with significant points marked by a red numbered square and detailed by the corresponding caption. ~ Steph

    Wind your way through five time periods of American history while you race to the finish line. Players start in the time of early American exploration, and work their way through the Colonial period, American Revolution, Constitution and Civil War by answering questions that test historical knowledge. Question cards have one question from each time period (350 questions total). In order to move forward on your turn, you have to answer the question that corresponds to the time period your playing piece is in. If you get it correct, you can roll and move, otherwise, your turn is over. The questions cover historical subjects, geography, personalities, government, and more – and include a mix (from an adult's point of view) of fairly easy to challenging questions. Action cards have been added with the current edition of the game as well, for added engagement. For 2-8 players, or more in teams. - Zach

    Journey back in time with this magnificent guide to the temple! Written by Episcopalian minister Robert Backhouse, this book covers the history of the Jewish Temple, from the early days of the Tent of Meeting to its present state of ruin. (All that currently remains is the Western Wall Herod the Great built to enclose his Temple area.) Many facts about temple rituals such as animal sacrifice and the various feasts and festivals are given. Explore the "vast complex of colonnades, courtyards and buildings" of the majestic temple with this unique pictorial guide. Nearly every page is illustrated with color photographs of an intricate temple model hand-constructed by Alec Garrard of Norfolk, England. This authentic model is based on information from the Bible, the Talmud, the Mishnah, Flavius Jesephus, and archeological discoveries. The model was built to a scale of 1: 100, and each handmade "brick" was baked in Mr. Garrard's own oven. This guide brings to life one of the Bible's grandest structures better than any book I've ever seen. No home or church library should be without it! ~ Rachel

    Volume Two picks up where Story of the World Volume One left off, and it tells the fascinating story of the “Dark Ages,” from the fall of Rome through the Renaissance. This volume has been written very similarly to the other also, with a very readable text, appropriate for young children, told in a clear and engaging style. Each of the many chapters is relatively short, and broken up into smaller chunks that are the perfect length for curling up together and reading aloud. Also like the preceding book, this story of history doesn’t limit itself to a dry, white-bread-without-the-crusts retelling of a primarily European history, instead it is a rich, whole wheat blend of European, Indian, Chinese, Australian, Arabic, Japanese, Jewish, Mongolian, Turkish, African, Russian, and American history during the period, providing the young student with a much more complete view of what was going on all around the world during that intriguing time period. To cover every event in each of these diverse histories would take a whole library, however, and just as Susan Wise Bauer tells us in her first volume, use this volume as a springboard to more detailed readings about any events that you and the children find interesting and want to learn more about. A timeline and an index are included at the back.

    Like its predecessor, the Activity Book corresponds chapter-by-chapter with the text from the Story of the World readings, and the sections and activities are well-organized and easy to implement. Each chapter begins with review questions for the book. Narration exercises are also included, so that the child may write or dictate to you a summary of what they learned. A list of books for additional reading follows, each with a concise summary and an approximate reading level to help you find those most appropriate for your child’s ability and interest. Corresponding literature, consisting of more "story-like" volumes such as cultural tales and myths are also featured to liven up your history reading, lending a little more interest to those lovers of fiction. An excellent range of activities follow the reading lists, including map work, a coloring page, and projects, which include art, crafts, games, and other more "involved" activities. An abundance of opportunities for "beyond-the-book" learning about here, but as the author mentioned in the activity book for Vol. 1, you should not feel pressured to read every book and complete every activity - history studied in this manner should be a fun and enjoyable journey for all involved, not an endless checklist of items you "have to" complete to pass a test. These courses lend themselves very well to family study, and a lot of the activities would be much more enjoyable with at least a couple siblings or friends. Fortunately, Susan Wise Bauer has anticipated this, and has denoted chosen activities with a "C" to highlight its use as a good co-op or classroom activity. All in all, this looks like an very well-rounded, extremely enjoyable, and solidly chronological approach to history

    The text is available spiral-bound in the first edition or in paperback or hardcover in the revised version. the Activity Book is a bound paperback and is the revised version.

    Beginning the fourth Sunday before Christmas, many families set aside a few minutes a day to celebrate Advent and zero in on the true reason for the season. This wonderful story is designed to be used during Advent but really could just be read and enjoyed like a typical book. For each day of Advent, the book provides a short chapter of a story about a young boy whose family were shepherds during the time of Jesus' birth. Due to Jotham's poor attitude and a misunderstanding, Jotham is separated from his family and must travel across Israel in search of them. He faces many dangers but also meets many new friends. Ultimately, Jotham is reunited with his family on Christmas Eve, just in time for them all to witness the birth of Christ together. It's a charming tale, full of adventure and lessons, and is ideal for the whole family to read aloud. Each chapter probably takes about 10-15 minutes to read and usually concludes with a scripture verse that ties in with the story as well as a small, 1-2 paragraph devotional. Whether you use it to celebrate Advent in the traditional way or just read it for fun, this story is entertaining and a great reminder of what Christmas is really all about.

    Marvelously and thoroughly illustrated by Alan Parry, this version of the famous allegory written in 1676 by John Bunyan was prepared to coincide with a TV series called Dangerous Journey, which aired in 1985. This book would make a great bed-time storybook as the rich images, coupled with the carefully selected text of the story, make for an experience to subtly teach a lesson while serving as a springboard for a young child's imagination. 126 pgs. ~ Tom

    Help Mother Hen collect all her chicks and gather them safely into the chicken coop! This cute cooperative game is easy to learn and fun to play. Even the very young kids can participate! The brightly colored board features a twisty path from the start space to the chicken coop, and the spaces on the board contain different adorable farm animals or tractors. The 40 baby chick tokens are spread around the game board, and then the Mother Hen playing piece starts her journey to find all her babies. Each player spins the spinner (which shows the animals and tractor from the board as well as a fox) and then moves the Mother Hen to the next space that features that item. As they move, they count the spaces and collect that number of baby chicks to put in the coop. Landing on the fox means that one baby chick is removed from the coop and put back on the board. If all the babies are home when Mother Hen arrives, everyone wins – but if there are still baby chicks on the board, you'll have to try again! For 2-4 players; game time is approximately 15 minutes. ~ Megan

    Linda Hobar, the author of this world history series, states in the beginning of this book, "I believe history is the story of God revealing Himself to mankind and that He did it most perfectly through the person of Jesus Christ…the "mystery" is the gospel of Jesus Christ." What a refreshing and different view from most world history curriculums! Those looking for a world history program that aligns the stories of mankind with the living story of God will truly appreciate this Bible-centered approach to the history of the world. Picking up where Volume 1 leaves off, this volume begins with the Pentecost and the first followers of Jesus (including Paul) around 29 A.D and chronologically continues through the early church and moves into the Middle Ages, covering the years through about 1456 A.D. The format of this book is very similar to that of the first volume; however, there are some small differences. Firstly, there are fewer lessons (84 as opposed to 108), but these lessons are slightly longer, offering more information on a given topic. Lessons generally take the form of real-life biographies, sharing the stories of men and women who changed the world while simultaneously showing the relationship between God and the world during that period. Another new feature is the bolding of key words to aid students in finding the information again later for activity or vocabulary purposes. As in the first book, this volume includes pretests to be given at the beginning of each week, end of the week reviews, memory card suggestions, bi-weekly quizzes, quarterly worksheets, and two semester tests. Memory cards are fact cards that students create for each lesson, capturing the main points and dates on an easy to review flashcard. The end of the week reviews continue to hold timeline and mapping exercises, providing students with helpful visuals of when important figures lived and where places studied are located. This volume also contains even more activities following each lesson than the first volume. This is simply to provide you with more choices, not to overwhelm you with feeling like you should do them all! These activities are generally categorized into younger, middle, and older student activities in order to accommodate the curriculum to a wider spread of grade levels, with the youngest comprised of many hands-on activities to help them experience history, middle activities a combination of hands-on exercises with research, and the older ideas centering on research, encouraging students to learn more and dig deeper into the people and lessons from history. The activities and memory cards, as well as the weekly and quarterly reviews and tests, are meant to ensure long-term retention of the key events and people throughout history, as opposed to the short term memory capacity we often hold history (and other subjects!) lessons in. The back of this hefty 700-page book contains the outline maps for the lessons, additional fun supplemental activities, suggestions of books and resources for further study of many of the topics, a chart of materials needed for the activities found in each lesson, and a full answer key. The fascinating journey across the continents continues as students discover who lived when and the way God worked His plan throughout this period of history. ~ Steph

    Using her well-known talent for making complex topics clear and understandable, Dr. Beechick has provided us with another valuable and exciting resource for teaching. This book is riveting! In a sharp departure from her fabulous "how to teach" books, Dr. Beechick introduces us to an almost forgotten world in a fantastic work of historical fiction - combining the actual, historical truths revealed in scripture with various other sources to create a fluid, easy-to-read "walk" through early history. We journey from creation to the departure of Abram from Ur, through the eyes of the Old Testament authors. Hopefully, Dr. Beechick will continue in this vein in future books. 176 pgs.

    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

    This course is for your visual learners who need high school credit in Chemistry. Wes Olson, the host of Biology 101, will take you on a journey through the history of chemistry along with what the study of chemistry is all about. This course is divided into nineteen 20-45 minute segments and examines the world of chemistry, the periodic table, important characters in the field of chemistry, the essentials of chemistry such as neutrons, isotopes, ions, compounds, molecules, and balancing chemical equations, an explanation of the elements – non-metals, poor metals, transition metals, rare earth & radioactive metals, and the future of chemistry. This is a 4 DVD set that has a running time of 10 hours, 55 minutes along with PDF files for the guidebook, accreditation booklet, and an extended periodic table.

    To get started with this program, you will want to print off the PDF files for the guidebook, periodic table and accreditation schedule, or take them somewhere to have them printed (the guidebook is over 120 pages). Students will be starting a chemistry notebook for this program in which they will write their research and reports. You will want to read ahead in the guidebook so you can gather and prepare needed items for the next lesson, mini-labs, and reports. The guidebook also allows the student to review information covered in the lessons along with quizzes and discussions questions. Mini-labs are demonstrated in the lessons and are performed with items from around your house or are easily accessible. I think the labs are much better and meatier than those found in Biology 101 and would do a much better job of meeting the high school credit. ~ Donna

    Formerly titled Victor Journey Through the Bible, this is a wonderful reference to accompany your own Bible reading or family Bible studies. It covers selected (major) Bible events chronologically, providing helpful historical and cultural information about traditions, clothing, everyday objects, places, and more. For example, the Tower of Babel entry discusses its location, possible excavation sites, what the name "Babel" means in Akkadian, information about ziggurats (the most probable form of construction), and the birth of nations after the flood. Very interesting, informative and colorful, this profusely illustrated volume abounds with photographs and artistic renderings, besides maps, charts, lists, and diagrams. Although the title has changed slightly from "Victor" to "DC Cook," the interior content has not been changed. A welcome addition to your library.

    Lois Lenski brings us the story of Mary Jemison, affectionately referred to as Molly. Molly spent the first 12 years of her life with her white family in Marsh Creek Hollow, New York. When the story begins, it is the night before Pa plans on sowing the corn. The family is seated around the dinner table when a neighbor comes to warn them of the danger of the Indians. He encourages the Jemison family to flee and avoid attack. Stubborn Pa does not listen, saying he intends to stay where he is and arise the next day to plant his corn. However, when the next day comes, Molly and her family are taken from their home and quickly led away by the Seneca. A short time into the journey, Molly is forced to go on while her family is left behind. Her mother tells her to never forget her family name, the language that they speak, and her faith. Molly does not find out that her family was killed until 2 years later. Her first year among the Seneca proves to be difficult and heartbreaking. She is renamed, "Corn Tassel" because of her beautiful yellow hair. Every day she mourns the loss of her family and goes into the woods to cry. There is no hope to escape, for she can't navigate the treacherous way home by herself. She learns the Indian ways and comes to love the Seneca. After two years, she is given the difficult decision to be sold to an Englishman and live with her kind again. She is torn because she has learned so much and has gained so much strength because of the Indians and she now loves them as family.
