What famous Bible figure lived when the Trojan Horse was built? Who lived in North America around the time that Jeremiah wrote Lamentations? This historically accurate book tells you who walked the earth when and helps put their life in perspective around important events that happened worldwide during their lifetime. Unique historical photos are shown throughout, along with fun projects and timeline and mapping assignments. Another feature are the memory cards, which you add to every week to keep your facts straight. Quarterly reviews and semester tests are provided. Although this is intended for 4-8 graders, it is easily adapted to both older and younger students for an all-in-one history book as assignments are included for all grade levels. ~ Stephanie

    The beautiful 600+ page full-color, hardcover Mystery of History Volume IV text includes readable (story-based) text and plentiful illustrative information (maps, charts, art reproductions, and lots of photos). The flow of the last three centuries is traced through countries/peoples; through classical music and art; through notable people; through developing ideologies; through struggling/oppressed people groups; and through industrial/scientific developments. Utilizing the same 28 week, three lessons per week format as Volume 3, Volume 4 is primarily the Reader (text) with an online access code to download the accompanying Companion Guide. The digital (PDF) Companion Guide contains files of activities, maps, study guides, reviews, and quizzes. The final chapter provides a glimpse of the Christian reasons for a Hope for Mankind. An interesting endpoint for a world history course but not surprising for a series that has maintained from the beginning that the "mystery" of history is that there is a plan for mankind.

    People throughout history have been fascinated by the moon. As the closest heavenly body to earth, it provides light at night, an intriguing surface, and fascinating phase changes. Even though we can't pull the moon down to take a closer look at it, you can experience the comfort and mystery of the moon in your own room! This creative night light is designed to look like the face of the moon, and can be hung on any vertical surface. Its surface is textured to resemble the moon, and is translucent enough that the lights behind it filter through to "glow" when it is switched on. And that's not all! Simply switch it on to experience the full moon's glow. Or use the manual phase button or automatic phase button to take the moon through its phases, from a sliver to a full moon, and back again. It's a perfect night light, for it automatically lights up in a darkened room, and shuts off after 30 minutes if there is no manual interaction. An on/off switch is found on the moon itself, and the handy fist-sized remote control contains the manual phase, automatic phase, and on/off buttons. A perfect complement to a room already filled with glow-in-the dark stars or a perfect night light for the child who just needs a little light to put them to sleep. Moon requires 4 'AA' batteries, and remote requires 2 'AAA' batteries; however, no batteries are included. Jess

    Designed to accompany the newest volume of Mystery of History, 111 black and white figures of people and events span the period of time from 1300 to 1700 AD. Each figure is accompanied by a name, date, and descriptive text, and range in size from 2.5 inches to 3.5 inches. Figures are printed on heavy cardstock and are black and white. 12-13 figures are on each 8 ½" by 11" page and will need to be cut out for placement on your timeline. There is no timeline included in this set of figures.

    If you are making more than one timeline for multiple children, figures are reproducible for family use. Although the primary purpose of these figures is for use with Mystery of History III, they could also be used with any study of this time period. See history in order of events and how one event leads to another. - Donna

    POW! My eyes and mind popped when I opened this book! What an excellent introduction and overview of the wonderful world of design, presented in a beautiful and hip layout with a rhythm that’s easy to follow. Even though this is geared toward upper elementary and older students, adults will enjoy the read too! What is design? It’s all around you. As the author says, “Everything not made by nature is designed by someone.” Author, Chip Kidd—who has been a working designer for nearly 30 years and is responsible for over 1,000 book cover designs—answers that question and more in a thought-provoking style with his use of colorful visuals, playful type, and real industry examples. Chip gives a brief graphic design history lesson and then explores the core elements of design including layout, typography, color theory, scale, focus, symmetry, content, and more in the first 4 chapters. In Chapter 5, readers are presented with 10 interesting design projects that allow exploration and fleshing out of design concepts with their own creations and hands. For anyone who’s a visual learner, this dynamic book is a treat! It brought me back to my design school days. 8.5” x 11,” 150 pgs, hc. ~ Emily

    There are times when I pick up a new item and find myself saying "Wow I sure wish this was around when I was being homeschooled!" I loved maps and geography. Actually, I still do. So when I had the opportunity to explore this program, I was very excited. The concept is very simple: these are PDF maps that can be manipulated to show just what you need you can add or subtract names, borders, rivers, color, cities, and physical features at will. With the newest version, you can even edit maps in Adobe Reader and print them. This makes this a fantastic resource for many ages and skill levels and a really great value. There are four main map categories on the home screen: World, USA, Historical, and Thematic. The program includes 75 maps of the world, over 60 USA maps, over 150 historical maps and map sets from Mystery of History. When you click on "World" you are shown a world map with continents and oceans named. You can create a map at that level or click on one of the names to "zoom in" on a particular area. The next map, again, gives you the option to create a map or "zoom in" to get details on a couple of neighboring countries. There are only a couple of instances where the closest "zoom" will show an individual country (like New Zealand, Australia, Ireland/Northern Ireland), most show a continental region (like Southern Africa or Korean peninsula). The USA category can be explored by state or by region. In a similar manner to the countries, states are shown with their neighbors (though neighbors are only labeled with the state name and rivers if selected). The category for historical maps is further divided by time period: Ancient (Creation 33AD), Middle Ages (33 1456), Renaissance and Reformation (1457 1707), and Modern (1708 Present). Thematic maps include American history, Explorers, Native Americans, World Wars, Biblical Maps, 20th Century Treaties, and Chinese Dynasties. You can access different maps through several means. The first is the "zoom in" process described above. The second is via the left-hand navigation that pops up as soon as you select any category. This lists all of the major regions or time periods in the category so you can pick from the list quickly. The third way to access maps is via one of the alphabetical indexes unique to each of the four main categories.

    The content doesn't end there. All of the maps used in Mystery of History volumes 1-4 and All American History volumes 1-2 are included in the program. When you select one of those volumes you can either scroll through all of the maps or use the left-hand navigation to find the required map. These maps are not customizable, but are presented as they would be used in the programs.

    Another useful feature is the Teacher's Guide. The resources of the TG will be helpful for learning about this program as well as teaching geography in general: quick start guide, tutorial video, user manual, downloadable MP3 workshops on "Loving Geography" and "Packing a Punch with Timelines and Maps", and several lessons adapted from the book "Hands-On Geography": 50 bright ideas for using outline maps, the 5 themes of geography, how to make a salt-dough map, history and geography, 16 easy mapping projects, and Joseph's Journey.

    As far as supplemental geography resources go, this one is fantastic in scope and depth. With over 350 different maps and the ability to customize as needed, you can incorporate maps and geography into any lesson with ease. Compatible with Windows through Windows 10 or Mac and requires Adobe Reader 12.0 or higher. ~Zach

Now Theo and her strange new friend are suddenly launched into a mystery of giant proportions where they must find the truth about the painting as well as clear any air around her grandfather’s name.

    If you're looking for some activities to enhance your study of The Mystery of History V.1, this handy CD-ROM is for you. Jean Henrich, a gifted artist, has provided the instructions to complete eight art projects to complement the main text. Thirty-five reproducible coloring pages are also included on the CD. Linda Lacour Hobar, author of Mystery of History V.1, has selected projects and coloring pages that will remind students of the ancient history they are learning, and she has linked the projects to corresponding lessons from the text. The correlating title and lesson number is identified with each project on the CD-ROM. Background information for each project, fun facts, brief histories, and lists of materials needed are included. The projects can be fairly complicated, require adult supervision, and require basic art supplies along with special materials like plasticine and polymer clay, acrylic paint, dried leaves, mosaic tiles, foam sheets, a hand drill, grout, and more (none of which is included). Step-by-step directions are given along with color photographs of assembly. Students can fossilize a fern in plaster, sculpt a Sumerian bas-relief, build an Egyptian shaduf, create an ancient oil lamp, assemble a Chinese cricket cage, construct a Greek temple façade, make Chinese paper cuts, and arrange a Roman animal mosaic. These projects will help students bring ancient history to life as they study and create, and the projects have different difficulty levels that can be geared toward various ages. Tips for successful projects and a suggested outline for the study are included, recommending 2 projects for each quarter so all 8 are finished in a year. The 35 coloring pages included on the CD-ROM provide five pages for each of the projects - five each for ancient botanicals, ancient Mesopotamia and Samaria, ancient Egypt, Israel, ancient China, ancient Greece, and ancient Rome. The projects and the coloring pages are in a PDF format on the CD-ROM, so you can scroll through them or easily print them off. This is a great supplement to The Mystery of History Volume 1 and will provide students with art to keep and enjoy that will remind them of the ancient history they have learned. Minimum requirements to run CD-ROM: Windows 95, 16 MB hard disk space, and optional additional 50 MB hard disk space to view some video on the CD.

    Set in England shortly after the Bubonic Plague, this is the tale of a young boy whose past is shrouded in mystery. He is declared a wolf's head, meaning anybody can kill him on sight. He has no idea why. To make matters worse, he is captured and forced into servitude by a mad man named Bear, who strangely enough encourages Crispin to think for himself. Large print makes it easy to read. ~ Mark

    What would it be like to be the slave of the great Spanish painter Diego Velázquez? To grind his paints, stretch his canvases, and clean his paint brushes every day? This fictional novel by Elizabeth Borton de Treviño gives a creative look into the life of Juan de Pareja, the slave of Velázquez. Throughout, Juan tells of his master's life through his own eyes - what it was like to watch Velázquez paint, to accompany him on the errands of the King, and to learn to paint in secret by watching his master's technique, as such work was forbidden to slaves. Little is known for certain about Velázquez and Juan's relationship, but the author does a wonderful job drawing from what is known to create this enjoyable Newberry Medal book with a bittersweet ending. 180 pgs, pb. – elise
