    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

    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 gripping account of the holocaust is told from two perspectives - that of Helen Waterford, a German Jew; and Alfons Heck, a member of the Hitler Youth. Although very close in age and proximity, their heritages gave them vastly different experiences during World War II. Placing their remarkable stories side by side offers a radical testimony of life under Hitler's rule.

    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

    I have never seen anything like these books before. The Infinite Discovery Bible Study Series is chok-a-blok full -- let me get on with what in a moment. Designed to teach Bible history to children of all ages, I can really see how this would be accomplished. With each book you will read a portion of Scripture (say one of the gospels as in the "In Jesus' Time" book). Throughout the reading process your child will be doing assignments, looking at outlines, reading summaries, filling in charts, answering research questions, reading background information, perusing maps, filling in timelines, finding definitions to Bible terms and more (oh, so much more!). I'm sure these studies will entail a lot of work, but the benefits will be tremendous. I'm still benefiting from a grueling Bible study course I did through a Christian correspondence school as an early teen. ~ Genevieve

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

     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.

    The apostle Paul was an effective evangelist in the first century because he was able to understand how people of a different culture thought about the important issues of life, then helped them connect their beliefs to the truth of God. For the church to be successful today, we need the same skill. You would think this should be easy, since we live in our own culture, but author Gene Edward Veith, Jr. believes some of us have missed the transition from modernism to postmodernism. Modernism was marked by a belief in scientific rationalism, humanism, and bias against the past. Postmodernism maintains that there is no absolute truth, that all truth is relative. While a modernist might believe that Christianity is not true because of some perceived scientific or historical conflict, a postmodernist believes that Christianity is not true because it cannot be the only truth or the absolute truth, and is therefore dismissed because it is intolerant.

    This is the overview. Veith, a regular contributor to World Magazine, delves into details in four major areas: thought, art (including architecture, television, movies, and literature), society (family, government, and daily life), and religion. I generally avoid philosophy-type books because they are often difficult to understand, but this book is very readable and gives specific examples, an important step in helping me grasp ethereal concepts. Well worth reading to get a handle on what passes for thinking in our times. 256 pgs, pb.

    Learn how to tell time with colorful, reusable activities! This dry-erase workbook has sturdy laminated pages, a wipe clean pen, and a fun monster theme. Each page features practice activities to help kids master the skills of time-telling. Many of the exercises involve tracing or writing specific times upon analog clock faces in response to prompts. Students are also asked to look at clocks, then write out the time in words or numbers. (These activities tend to be fill-in-the-blank for the first half of the book.). Digital clocks are covered as well. Brief instructional material is provided to introduce a concept, but most of the workbook consists solely of practice exercises. The colorful, friendly monsters will hold kids' interests as they complete activities such as recording the times Spud the monster performs daily activities (ie. eating, shopping, bedtime) or writing departure times at the train station. A "Your day" section invites kids to write down the times they do certain tasks during the day, too. 22 pgs. ~ Lisa

    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.
