    It is rare to find a book with stories of characters that are full of truth and Godly virtue. This beautiful, 123 page, hardcover book is filled with four such stories. The Bird's Nest is a story of a poor shepherd boy who refuses to show a lovely bird's nest to the crowned prince because of a promise he made to a friend. In the end, his noble character is rewarded and his morals are passed on to the next generation. The next story, The Diamond Ring, features a correspondence of letters between an orphaned brother and sister who by God's grace are taken care of immeasurably better than they ever could have hoped for due to their kind nature and gracious deeds. The Mother's Gift tells of how a gifted Bible reunited a brother and sister who had been separated under unforeseen circumstances. These three stories by Christoph Von Schmid are full of wisdom and truth in regards to Christian character, and the lessons within will greatly bless your family. However, there is one more jewel within this book by an unknown author. The Boy Who Would Not Take a Shilling highlights a young boy who amazes all by his kind and upright nature. A wonderful book full of Christian principles for your whole family to enjoy. - elise

     This fun resource goes beyond what you know about famous scientists and reveals some quirky, interesting facts about them. Find out little known facts about Zhang Heng, Ibn Sina, Galileo, Isaac Newton, William and Caroline Herschel, Charles Darwin, Louis Pasteur, Ivan Pavlov, George Washington Carver, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Edwin Hubble, Barbara McClintock, Grace Murray Hopper, Rachel Carson, Chien-Shiung Wu, James D. Watson and Francis Crick, and Jane Goodall. You will learn that Galileo had a giant ego and if you disagreed with him you were an "idiot"; Isaac Newton's father was illiterate and died before he was born (and his mother frowned on education); Albert Einstein adored music and Edwin Hubble was a terrible driver. Barbara McClintock studied genetics in conjunction with corn, but didn't particularly like corn. She preferred Godiva chocolate! At the end of each chapter are 2-3 interesting trivia related to that person. Please note that while interesting, some personal details about these scientists’ lives may be offensive to conservative families - a parent may wish to preview the content first. 96 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

    Here is accessible, practical help for parents discussing tough topics with their kids: death, Satan and hell, divorce, difficult Bible stories, sexual sin, natural disasters, and why people fight or kill. Each chapter follows the same path. First, through Scripture, metaphor, and life stories, the authors help you as a parent flesh out each topic so that you have a solid grasp before explaining it to your child. Then comes sample discussions, presented in child-friendly ways, for responding to a child ages 5-10 or a child ages 11 and up. The authors stress that these are sample conversations only and not scripts. The focus is to then tailor your response to your style and your child’s needs and questions. Finally, each chapter ends with “In a Nutshell,” which summarizes the truths presented in each chapter. The authors take a walk-along-side approach with parents as they present truths from Scripture on each of these difficult topics. I so appreciate the simple depth of wisdom and grace this mother/daughter team use. The focus of each chapter is to see that God is the answer for the consequences of sin in the world and that effectively conveying this truth is ultimately dependent on the work of the Holy Spirit. Written by the authors of Give Them Grace (#052046). Includes a recommended resource list for further study. 5.5” x 8.5”, 173 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    You know you're holding an unusual book when it's endorsed by talk show host, Dr. Laura; Senator Elizabeth Dole; professional hockey player, Mario Lemieux; and singer/songwriter Bono. What could they possibly agree on? Manners! This delightful and deliberate education in all things pertaining to good manners – respecting mother and father, using words wisely, table manners, washing and dressing, caring for the elderly and sick, getting along with others, in school, good sportsmanship, writing letters and invitations, church, weddings, and funerals, kindness toward animals, and respecting our country – is taught through a wonderful anthology of engaging stories and poems punctuated with the author's gentle summations. No dull list of dos and don'ts here. The broad selection – some well-known; some from long-forgotten personages; and some contemporary – is similar to Book of Virtues but there is more application especially geared to a younger audience. 390 pgs, hc ~ Janice

    The things that Lisa, her older sister Ruth, her younger sister Annie, and her mother had to endure is incredible. They lived in Berlin in 1938 when the Nazis were first starting to take over. Lisa's father, who is referred to as Papa, decides in the very beginning of this story to leave Germany and establish a foundation for his family in America. Meanwhile, life in Berlin is getting more dangerous for Jewish people, and as the threat of war is turning into reality, Papa sends a letter over, suggesting that his wife and their daughters flee to Switzerland, masking the emigration as a vacation. Mother is allowed to bring only 10 marks per person with her, which puts her in a very challenging financial situation. She keeps Annie with her and is forced to send Ruth and Lisa to a camp where there are other children in similar situations or without parents at all. The girls don't get enough to eat and don't have the kind of care that all children need. After they visit their mother, she senses this and takes them out of the camp. Pretty soon, all three girls are sent to live with three different families in Zurich, where they are well-nourished and thrive. Mother collapses from pneumonia and spends this time in the hospital. She recovers and the family is on their way to being reunited with their father, whom they have not seen for nearly a year by this time, as he has been saving for their tickets to America. Sonia Levitin tells a touching, and very real story, that I am sure was sadly not uncommon.

    Pam Conrad brings you this gripping log of Pedro de Salcedo, who was aboard the great voyage with Christopher Columbus from August 3rd of 1492 to February 14th of 1493. Pedro is a young man of only fourteen, and it is his first time away from home. The captain quickly makes him a sort of right-hand man. Pedro watches how intensely the men doubt Columbus from the beginning. The day before they finally touch land, Columbus promises they will turn around home. As fate would have it, the next day they land in a place Columbus names San Salvador. Here they gain experience with the natives, who are extremely docile and generous. In each place they land on, the people gradually become unfriendly - perhaps some words of caution were spread? Soon enough, the entire crew realizes they have not landed in India and there are no spices or silks or pearls. In fact, nobody except Columbus cares about anything except heading home to Spain at this point. After the sinking of the Santa Maria, some of the men board the Nina to go home, and the others are left behind to start a Spanish settlement in the New World. Pedro fears he may not ever return home. On the last day at sea, he encases a last letter into a barrel and throws it out to the ocean so that if it ever reaches his home, his mother should know that he loves her and she should pray for his soul. This recounting is sometimes suspenseful, troubling, and mystifying, but at all times it is engaging.

The play begins in Algernon Moncrieff's London flat, where the main character Jack (whose city name is Ernest) has proposed to dear, sweet Gwendolen. However, this simple proposal soon reveals to Gwendolen's mother, Lady Bracknell, that Jack is not on her list of eligible young men as a suitable husband for Gwendolen. Lady Bracknell quickly goes to work interviewing Jack to see if he might be a good suitor for her daughter. After a series of questions, things are looking good for Jack; however, one piece of the puzzle is missing. Jack does not know his blood-line, as he was found in a black leather hand-bag in the cloak room of a train station. After instructions from Lady Bracknell, it is clear that Jack must find some relations, more importantly his parents, before he will ever be allowed Gwendolen's hand in marriage.
