    Similar to other titles in the Usborne Science Activities series, this book features interesting and easy-to-read science facts with an abundance of simple but exciting activities to demonstrate the concepts. Each two-page spread focuses on a different aspect of plants, including germination, growth, nutrients, light, flowers, trees, movement, useful plants, and more. The pages are filled with general information, interesting facts, and several fun activities to complete. For example, after reading about plant growth, readers can plant beans in a jar and watch them grow, investigate what plants need to grow, make a bottle garden, make a leaf rubbing, grow bulbs and carrot tops, and much more. - Jess

    This 400-page paperback text from Usborne is a fantastic reference guide that provides an extensive overview of world geography. First, you get a general overview of planet Earth. Next, more detailed sections cover the geographical phenomena of earthquakes, volcanoes, oceans, weather, climate, and world ecosystems. The people and cultures of the world (North America, South America, Australasia and Oceania, Asia, Europe, and Africa) are then extensively discussed, followed by an Atlas of the World portion of the book comprised of various maps (60 total) of all seven continents. The text concludes with a Fact File section that provides a medley of information on topics including but not limited to geographers and scientists, world records, time zones, constellations, and types of government.

    To take advantage of the interactive component of this book, visit the hundreds of websites recommended throughout the text. These sites were chosen to provide further information about people and places of the world and are reviewed and updated on a regular basis to ensure subject appropriateness and working order. Although it is "internet-linked," the Encyclopedia of World Geography is a complete book that can be used on its own. ~ Enh

    Homeschool mom Sandy Strenkowski (author of the Charlotte Mason-inspired Living Learning Books science curriculum) found herself poring over a wide variety of history curriculums on the lookout for one that met all of her criteria, but try as she might, she didn't find one. So, she decided to put together her own, using many of the same ideas and methods she incorporated into Living Learning Books. If you've used and liked Living Learning Books science, you may want to check out Ancient History for your history studies. Just browsing through the program, it appears well-organized, engaging, and multi-faceted, incorporating a wide variety of subjects - particularly in the language arts area.

    There are 114 lessons in the study, spanning the period between Creation and 444 B.C. The "backbone" of the lessons is in the "three R's" - reading, reflecting, and recording. For each lesson, the student will read assigned pages from one or several resource books. Additional assignments incorporated into many of the lessons include geography, Bible, handwriting, art appreciation, hands-on projects, timeline activities, and more. Although not every lesson includes every kind of assignment, each lesson includes the "Three R's" and a selection of additional assignments so the workload for each lesson isn't overwhelming.

    The "command center" of the study is the Teacher's Manual, which includes a lesson-by-lesson outline of assignments and activities, as well as a helpful lesson plan grid. The lesson plan grid displays the reading assignments and activities for every lesson in a quick, at-a-glance format, which should help tremendously with lesson planning. After a short section written to orient the user to the format and organization of the curriculum, the remainder of the Teacher's Manual is devoted to the detailed lesson plans. Lesson plans contain all assignments and lesson suggestions, including reading, handwriting, enrichment activities, answers to the reviews (test) and more, as well as a list of required resources for the lesson, project supplies (if applicable), and the corresponding student pages. Please note that either the Usborne Ancient World OR the Usborne Encyclopedia of World History is required, not both. – Jess

Follow the Popper family as they grow from a family of four with one pet penguin to a family of four with a dozen show-biz loving penguins. A Newbery Honor book, 140 pgs, pb. ~ Enh

    Not your ordinary sticker book, this resource contains a wealth of information about the people, places, and daily lives of those who lived in Bible times. Each page focuses on a topic and contains colorful captioned illustrations and photographs pertaining to the theme. For example, the "Jewish Home Life" section has photos of family tents (still in use today by Bedouin families), a cutaway illustration of a typical peasant's house, illustrations of Jewish families cooking and eating at home, and photos of ancient wine jars. Captions explain the significance of the pictures, and several images on each page appear faintly so you can select the matching sticker to complete the picture. There are over 100 large stickers in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some of the stickers include: illustrations of people from the Bible, portrayals of Noah's Ark and the Nativity, photos of artifacts and animals, and renderings of buildings. As students place the stickers on the pages, they will learn about the Philistines, the Egyptians, the Roman Army, farming and fishing, music, the Jewish religion, people from the Bible, and more. Oversized, 46 pgs (plus stickers). ~ Lisa
