    Even students not very interested in history will enjoy this book. In a double-column format, the book shares information about the daily life of settlers in America from 1564 to 1770. The information isnt full of stats or dates or specific historical figures; it focuses on the general way of life. Working chronologically through the years and different phases of settlement, the book discusses homes and buildings, tools, cooking, crops, animals, jobs, how laws were made, and other details about the daily toils of the settlers. You really start seeing them as real people, and begin to appreciate the role the common man had in founding this country. There are also 200 black and white sketches accompanying the text, which bring the descriptions alive and clarify how certain things looked or worked. The illustrations are very detailed and appear on almost every page. Whether you use this as an introduction to get students interested in colonial history or just as a fun book to scan for enjoyment, many age levels will enjoy the explanatory text and descriptive sketches.

    This book contains three principles that will change your diet and improve your health! The author, Dr. Rex Russell, used to suffer from many different health ailments and after trying everything in modern medicine, he felt God calling him back to the scriptures to learn what God says about eating, living a healthy lifestyle, and living longer. The first principle reads, Eat only substances God created for food. Avoid what is not designed for food. The second principle is As much as possible, eat foods as they were created before they are changed or converted into something humans think might be better. The last principle states Avoid food addictions. Dont let any food or drink become your God. Throughout this book Dr. Russell explores many different foods such as grains, meats, sugars, fat, beverages, fruits, and vegetables and how these three principles apply to these different food groups. He also addresses how our health can easily be affected by the lifestyles we keep that may be in direct opposition with Gods Word. He also is a big advocate for fasting as a way to help us get over our food and substance addictions. Dr. Russell has obviously done his research and presents a lot of medical and scientific information that supports his findings in the scriptures. I read this book cover to cover and was very inspired to make some big changes in my own diet. A great read for anyone who is looking to get healthy Gods way! Hc, 286 pgs. elise

    Have you ever decided that you were going to read the Bible, start to finish, only to be sidetracked because the task seemed so daunting? The Wayfinding Bible offers you alternatives to help you navigate through portions of Scripture. This Bible is the New Living Translation and offers you three different routes flyover route, direct route, and scenic route. The flyover route is divided into 54 readings to help you get a chronological overview of the Bible. The direct route divides the readings into 215 sessions that help you get a complete perspective on the entire Bible and how it fits together (in less than a year). The scenic route is divided into 386 readings that will take you on a journey through passages that may or may not be familiar. Each route is marked with colored arrows at the top of the pages blue for the flyover route, green for the direct route, and orange for the scenic route. Those arrows will tell the reader if they should continue reading on the next page (straight arrow), skip pages (arrow curved up), jump to a different book (dotted curved arrow), or go backward to read in a previous passage (arrow curved back).

    Along the way, readers will find written introductions for each book, historical markers that emphasize specific locations, scenic overlooks that will also help the reader understand the history and people of the Bible, and Side Trips that highlight passages on certain topics. Getting Your Bearings are found in 8 different places of the Bible to help you look back and look at where you are going next. Photos, maps, illustrations, and a timeline will help you keep on track as you travel through the Bible. An itinerary is found at the back of the Bible for each route, which allows you to keep track of your readings (stops) along the way. A fourth route is found at the very back of this Bible Thru-Hike. It takes you chronologically through every word of this Bible. This is the most intense of the reading schedules and you can check off as you read through your journey.

    Choose the route that fits your schedule and get familiar with the flow of the Bible. Enjoy the journey as you learn what Gods Word has to offer. Read through as a family or read for personal devotion time but get started finding your way through the Bible. p/b. ~ Donna

    This historical romp through the middle ages is rather the opposite of the Famous Men book for the same period. Instead of looking at certain persons, this book steps back and looks at the collective whole of medieval life in Britain. And, yes, he runs into some of those famous men along the way. Chapters cover groups of individuals peasants, minstrels, outlaws, monks, philosophers, knights, damsels, and kings. Investigating each, the author describes in generalities, and then cites specifics in terms of people and events. Frankly, the information is fascinating in its breadth and provides a number of surprises, such as the amount of belongings owned by some peasants or the degree of openness in communication concerning sexual acts. There are two sets of full-color art reproductions depicting various aspects of life in the medieval time period (defined, by the way, as from 1066 the Norman conquest through 1536 Henry VIIIs suppression of the monasteries). Please note that the target audience is older than the Famous Men books and some content is more graphic than you might expect. Also, at least one of the paintings features a (captive) female nude. 224 pgs, pb ~ Janice

    This broad view of history and culture is beautifully illustrated with photographs and drawings depicting how people lived in the past. Beginning with cave-dwellers in South Africa over 200,000 years ago, students can read about people and places like early farmers in the Stone Age and the first towns to the bustling modern city of Tokyo. A few pages each are dedicated to ancient Egyptian life, the Romans, and the Mayans. The Vikings are followed by medieval China and France, then to the year 1500 and Timbuktu in Africa. Then its on to Istanbul, Vienna and Salzburg, to the west coast of Canada in the early 1800s. 1830s British factory workers and 1950s suburban America are back to back. Jump over to India and Tokyo and your photo tour ends. There is a series of riddles (with answers in the back) and a time line to show all of the places and events and how they fit together. A glossary helps kids learn some new vocabulary. There is a bit of everything covered in broad terms. I think kids would enjoy the caption-style pages. 80 pgs, hb. ~ Sara

    Living a fruit-filled life is an outflow of a spirit-filled life, and as Christians, we also have a responsibility to make wise choices in our responses and behavior. Wisdom and discernment to make wise choices often comes from understanding what Gods word has to say. This self-pacing, in-depth word study on the fruit of the spirit may be exactly the tool you are looking for to develop discernment. Each of the fruits is examined scripturally using the Greek word as the basis. At the conclusion of the word studies, a place is provided to journal final thoughts and impressions. This book is an effective resource to introduce your young people to the word-study approach that is crucial to understanding and applying Gods word in our lives. 95pgs. Spiral Bound. ~Deanne

    This book was written to be a natural follow up to the much-appreciated For the Childrens Sake by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay. While that book has inspired (and continues to inspire) many parents and educators, it has also left them with a desire for an even deeper understanding of the Charlotte Mason philosophy and her teaching methods. This book was written in response to their requests for further help and guidance in implementing these techniques. The book was written by a handful of contributors, including Macaulay, all of whom are deeply involved in education and are Charlotte Mason advocates. The book holds six chapters. The first two cover The Value of Charlotte Masons Work for Today, and The Child is a Person. The third chapter discusses the Four Pillars of Education - atmosphere, discipline, life, and the science of relations. In the Distinctives of a Charlotte Mason Education chapter, a wide variety of topics are addressed, including living books, narration, poetry, history, mathematics, nature study, music appreciation, foreign languages, physical education, and many more. The last two chapters are entitled Broader Application of Charlotte Masons Teaching Principles, and An Applied Philosophy. This is a highly-informative book which takes the topic of education quite seriously. 254 pgs, pb. - Melissa
