    By the same illustrator as Curious George, H. A. Rey, comes this story about a mother kangaroo who is in despair because she has no pocket to carry her son, Freddy. All of the other mother kangaroos have pockets to carry their young in, but not Katy. Very sadly, she goes around asking all of the animals who don't have pockets how they carry their babies. She asks Mrs. Crocodile and Mrs. Monkey, and she observes the lions and the birds, but none of them give her an answer. As a last resort, she wakes up the wise old owl who is asleep in a dead tree. He tells her where to go to find a solution to her perplexing problem.

    A well-organized book lover’s log! Smaller sections are here to record your reading wish list, memorable quotes, your favorite books and authors, and books that changed your life.

Book Life also includes lots of ways to find a good book: lists of award winning books and book web sites, and a list of memorable author’s homes and book stores to visit in the U.S. and some in the U.K. The detailed book lists are geared for the older reader, including Pulitzer Prize book lists and the Modern Library 100 Best Novel’s list. Still, it is a great idea for the book lover in your family. But don’t forget school uses! Use it as a book-report upgrade or a way to compile a portfolio of your reading assignments. Or just plan a literary field trip. Sections are color coded and separated by authors’ quotations. A sturdy, keepsake-like, pocket-sized book that will easily travel with you to your next book adventure. 5” x 7”, 207 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    A reading strip looks a bit like a ruler with a transparent strip down the length of it. Students place the strip over text and it helps them to keep their place as they move the strip down the page. This strip has a pocket with a cardboard insert. As students read, they can slide the insert to reveal the words as they read left to right. This would be fantastic for a student who struggles with sounding out words. Show a syllable at a time and a line at a time. ~ Sara

    There's something rather touching about this tribute to a mom's reading program. When a young man (Nathaniel Bluedorn) who has spent years listening to family read-alouds takes the time to gather those books into a useful resource for other homeschooling families, one has to respect the impact one mom/family has had. If that's not enough to convince you of the value of family read-alouds, he now starts the book in its expanded and revised 5th edition by addressing the topics "Why Read?" and "How to Read Aloud."

    Classifying 400 Classic Books for Children, the arrangement is alphabetical by authors with a "by subject" cross reference in the back. Nathaniel notes that family conservatism is the reason some authors did not make the list. Icons denote the time and geographical setting of the story and the publication date of the book. In addition to a short summarization of the plot, the books are also rated according to reading level (language and plot) – easy (all ages), more complex (ages 10+), and more mature (ages 13+). Occasional cartoons punctuate the listings, and the book's handy size (4.5" x 9") means it can be easily slipped into a purse or car storage pocket so it will be available for library trips or potential garage sale purchases. ~ Janice

    One day Peter wakes up and there is snow covering everything! He gets all bundled up and heads outside for an adventuresome day in the snow. Before he goes inside for the day, he stows a snowball in his pocket. When he checks his pocket before bed the snowball is gone, and Peter is sad. Then he dreams that all of the snow melted over night, but when he wakes up there is even more snow.

      This resource book details how to use anything from CD sleeves, to letter and business envelopes, to manila envelopes (from 2” x 4” to 12” x 15”) as learning tools. Repurpose envelopes for projects, study guides and daily work. Dinah is a master at repurposing—even reusing envelope clasps. Learn how to make 3 dimensional “foldables” such as display cases, cubes, shutter-fold displays, picture frames, accordion folds and pocket projects. Why do all this? Dinah says that in doing so children are not merely learning to recycle, but they are also practicing collaboration, problem solving, and synthesizing using kinesthetic and visual manipulatives. The basic principal of this book is project-based learning (PBL). The learning occurs as the student creates the project: researching topics and building to present to others. For example, in literature class, study different points of view and then make a trifold display. Show examples of muscle types in an accordion fold. Demonstrate integers on a cube. The author includes several pages of idea stimulators for different subjects such as listed above. She also shares how to make a “publishing center” for your classroom. The included DVD details each project type. Click on the icon next to the title to locate the appropriate video. An economical and hands-on approach tool for learning (and remembering!) a plethora of things.
