    Using classic and some modern literature as examples, this book introduces and reinforces literary techniques. The following literary terms/techniques are covered: connotation, dialogue, dialect, imagery, idiom, simile, metaphor, allusion, personification, hyperbole, understatement, irony, sarcasm, oxymoron, paradox, symbol, pun, alliteration, and onomatopoeia. Each term is defined and then one or more examples are given in the form of excerpts from classic/modern literature. Simple exercises then have students identify, explain, or use the technique. For example, when discussing idioms, the book defines it, gives three examples from Anne of Green Gables, and then includes four excerpts (one from Treasure Island and three from Little Women) that have idioms in them. The idioms are bolded in the sentence and students must write what the idiom means in standard English. Most literary devices receive 2-3 pages of examples and exercises. The end of the book has a few exercises that review all the topics covered in the book, along with a glossary of literary terms and an answer key. Inviting reviews, examples, and exercises make this a great resource for teaching literary devices. Reproducible, 80 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    A mother/daughter devotional study to celebrate that special bond. If you can set aside one hour per week for sixteen weeks, you will both be enriched, and come away with a better understanding of each other. Each devotional time has a particularly appropriate topic and begins with selected scripture to read together. After briefly recording what you each think is the main point of the reading, you read the story (out loud or together) and its "moral". Discussion questions are directed to the daughter. These are followed by looking up specific Bible verses and having her record what the Bible has to say. After this background work, the two of you can have a deeper discussion of the topic, lead by questions directed to mom, daughter, or both, along with spaces for recording these thoughts. Each devotional time ends with a scripture to memorize, recording a goal for the week, and a short closing prayer.

    Reading good literature opens wide the windows of the world to students. A body of materials which will link the student with the general experience of mankind is provided in this book. This collection of titles is divided into ten units presenting experiences common to people in all times and societies. Certain works have been selected to provide as wide a scope as possible and while something will interest each reader, all of the titles in this collection will not be suitable for all students. Books such as Pride and Prejudice, Little Women, The Chalk Garden, The House of Mirth, On Golden Pond, The Chocolate War, 2001: Space Odyssey, The Great Gatsby, Great Expectations, and Ivanhoe represent the quality books from all spectrums that this book features. The book includes a reading level identification for and a short description of all 150 featured books and then provides tests for each book. Each test in this volume contains three types of questions. A set of objective questions will measure the student's understanding of the reading content., such as the basics of plot and setting. Five short-answer questions require more inferential responses about the larger ideas that the author wishes the reader to grasp. A final challenge essay asks the student to express observations on what has been read and to support those observations with information gained from the book, other books, and life. 100 More Great Books is constructed in the same format and contains seven units grouped in types of books: Adventure and Survival, The Maturing Self, History in Fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy, and the Supernatural, Social Issues and Moral Challenge, Success and Achievement and Reflections of the Family. It recommends classics such as Pilgrims Progress, Jacob Have I Loved, Across Five Aprils, A Wrinkle in Time, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, Anna and the King of Siam, Tess of the D'Urbervilles and many more. - Rachel S.

    This book radiates love! As you and your daughter progress through the Bible study (designed to take 1-2 hours a week for 16 weeks), this pretty, spiral bound book will slowly transform into a keepsake. The two of you will be brought closer as you share thoughts about her birth and special moments in your lives. Engage in further discussions and search scripture on topics such as showing respect, making friends, obeying God, hospitality, apologizing, belonging to God, praying, doing what is right, and more. My favorite parts of the book are all the neat extra-special activity ideas for mother and daughters. Some are purely for fun, and others to commemorate life-firsts such as a first sleepover or camp. God bless you as the love and warmth contained in this study becomes an anticipated time in your week for you to disciple your daughter. ~ Genevieve
