    Little bear is an inquisitive, friendly young bear who lovingly interacts with his family and friends. His adventures have instilled a love of reading in young readers for decades. The writing is at Level 1, but the engaging writing completely hides that fact. This is beginning reading with themes to which all children can relate. Detailed drawings by Maurice Sendak (Marco Polo uses a different artist who has a reminiscent style). Approx 60 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    Your kids will learn a lot by listening in on school sessions for the animals of the Green Meadows and Green Forest! Peter Rabbit wants to know more about his four-footed friends who share the meadow and forest with him. He goes to speak with Old Mother Nature, who is only too happy to help by starting daily school sessions. During each session, their class learns about a different mammal by having a special guest visit their class. They meet Danny Meadow Mouse, Prickly Porky the porcupine, Johnny Chuck the woodchuck, and Billy Mink. They also get a surprise visit from Reddy Fox and Buster Bear, who give all the rodents a little scare! During each school session they learn directly from the source about the food they eat, where they live, whether they hibernate or store food, whether they hunt or are hunted, and much more! This book contains forty stories by Thornton W. Burgess that introduce children to over seventy different animals. Each unabridged story has realistic black-and-while illustrations showing the spotlighted animal in their natural habitat. 275 pgs, pb. – elise

    In this charming story, we travel along to Blueberry Hill to pick sun-ripened blueberries. Sal's mother wants to take the berries home to can them so the family may enjoy them during the winter months. Sal brings along her small tin pail to help, however, she ends up eating more than she picks! On the other side of the hill, Little Bear and his mother are eating blueberries to grow big and fat for the long, cold winter. Both Sal and Little Bear sit down to enjoy the scrumptious berries, and when they get up to find their mothers, they each mistake the other's mother for their own! The soft humor and delightful ending is perfect for any young child, and the detailed blue and white illustrations perfectly accent the story. Pb. A read-along book and CD set are also available, which includes the book plus an audio CD. The CD includes the narrated story and fun activities. - elise

    Fascinating facts about wildlife, coupled with drawing instruction for the beginning nature journalist, make this a perfect supplement to the Handbook of Nature Study or other nature instructional text. Each two- or four-page spread is devoted to a different animal and contains: a good amount of interesting information about the animal; one or more artist-rendered sketches; and step-by-step drawing instructions to sketch the animal yourself. The book was written and illustrated by a husband and wife team, Colleen and Michael Monroe. Colleen is the writer, and she has included interesting and sometimes surprising facts about each subject (did you know that newborn fawns are born with no scent to protect them from predators?). Michael is a nationally known, award-winning (and self-taught) wildlife artist who spends most of his year visiting schools around the country, encouraging children to never give up on their dreams. His love of nature and wildlife is reflected in the sketches which adorn each page. The drawing instruction is detailed, begins with simple shapes, includes written instruction for adding features through the illustrated progression of steps, and ends with a completed sketch that very closely resembles part of the artist's depiction. Two pages of drawing tips, including a mini-lesson on shading, precede the actual text. Subjects include: hummingbirds, birds, ducks, loons, turtles, herons, frogs, rabbits, white-tailed deer, white-tailed fawns, owls, bears, and wolves. The book ends with some simple things you can do to help wildlife like keeping dangerous litter contained, building birdhouses, and planting flowers. The book is about 36 pages in landscape format with a hard cover, making it a little more durable for outdoor use.

    Introduce young students to weight and measurement with this durable set from Learning Resources. Included is the actual balance, which measures 16.5" x 6.5" x 6". It holds two clear plastic buckets that can be removed easily for emptying and allows students to see what they have placed inside. Any dry or liquid material can be measured in the buckets. Lids are included, which you can snap on top of the buckets and use as measurement platforms. The base of the balance scale has a built-in drawer to use as storage. In case you need something to weigh and balance, this set comes with some cute little bears that will certainly do the trick. There are 102 bears in six rainbow colors (17 of each color) and each bear measures 1" and weighs 4 grams. This is a very handy set that will help students have fun while they learn about balance and measurement. ~ Rachel

    Considering the approach, ease of use, content, child-appeal, benefits, effectiveness and cost of all the phonics programs we were familiar with, Sing, Spell, Read & Write was our choice for personal use. We have used several programs and read about many others. Although we didn't use this program in total with our children (because we extended the spelling, used italic handwriting instead of ball and stick, etc.) we did find it the most used and useful of those we tried. AND the results were wonderful! If you're looking for something to really lay it all out for you, something that works, is easy to use, and will have your child singing the letter sounds in days, followed closely by actually reading...this is what we recommend! Here are some of our reasons:

    The "raceway" theme is very appealing and motivating to children, who love tracking their success via race car around a track as they complete the 36 steps to independent reading.

    The songs are unquestionably contagious - children will sing and sing and sing and learn their letter sounds, long and short vowel sounds, blending vowels and consonants, and digraphs almost effortlessly - and enjoy it! That is, if you can bear to listen to it sung over and over, multiplied by x times the number of children using it throughout the years.

    The 17 phonetic, full-color storybooks cover all 36 steps, providing immediate, rewarding reinforcement for the decoding skill just learned. This makes good sense.

    The games are not just fluff, but real fortification of phonetic skills. They are more fun, however, if you can play with more than one child.

    The teacher training videos included in the set will greatly aid you in understanding/teaching the phonics program - and give you the confidence to do it!

    Included is a complete, phonetic spelling program dove-tailing with the phonetic constructs being learned and a complete handwriting program (if you use ball and stick manuscript).

    thick, four-color workbooks include grammar and creative writing

    phonics songs are contained in both cassette and CD formats

    The two workbooks and the assessment book included in the set are the only consumables in the program. Replacements must be ordered from the publisher.

    To be honest, we have just a few quibbles :

    1. Some of the tapes/voices are not as clear or distinct as a perfectionist might demand. Some may go a little too "fast" for your taste - notably the ferris wheel song used to practice blending sounds smoothly. For us, this was a plus, since we kept at it until we could keep up with the song, resulting in perfect blending!

    2. The "prizes" included are...well...rather cheesy at best and who needs 4 or 5 yo- yos, several plastic magnifiers, multiple thin plastic bracelets, and numerous plastic sack puppets? When using with one child, one of each would do nicely. To alleviate this, see our special offer below.

    A charming introduction to basic sewing principles. The kit includes materials and instructions to make 7 colorful, felt stuffed animals: a giraffe, bear, owl, fox, turtle, whale and a parrot. Felt pieces are die-cut. This lets the beginner focus on learning to use a needle and thread to attach pieces together. Kit includes a lovely book with clear illustrated project directions (32 pgs, pb), brightly colored felt for the critters (fronts, backs, additions), polyfill stuffing, 2 needles, 40 red ball-head pins in a case, 5 buttons, black/blue/red thread, and a handy little needle threader/cutter. Comes in a nice box (7.5"x 9.25" x1.75") that makes for a lovely contained gift for a boy or girl. To give you an idea, the owl is about 2.5"x 3.5", the whale about 4.5"x 2.5", and the giraffe about 3.5" x5.5". Ages 7+. ~ Sara

    An over-sized board book – with a search and find feature. Each two-page spread features multiple items with similar characteristics – and one or two differences. For instance, on pages featuring 24 brightly colored race cars, one is green (among the blue, orange, and yellow) and one faces the other way. In rhyme, the child is asked to find the ones that are different. Each set of pages features a similar type of quest amid brightly colored fun objects. One other search and find feature is included: a little teddy bear is nestled into the objects on every set of pages. Children will love to look for and make these discoveries for themselves. 14 pgs, board book (9” x 8.5”). ~ Janice
