    A beautiful, energetic picture book that not only tells the tale of Lewis & Clark's historical expedition, but does so in their own words, to boot. The highlights from the trip are captured, accompanied by text boxes containing edited, but accurate descriptions taken from Lewis and Clark's journals, and lively, energetic illustrations of the other Corps of Discovery members, Native Americans, animals, and plants they met up with, exciting events, their camps, and forts. After the ecstatic team finally beholds the Pacific at the end of the tale, facts about the journey back home, and some of their amazing accomplishments are featured. An informational and highly entertaining version of the Lewis and Clark expedition. - Jess

    Following the same great format as Trail Guide to World Geography (see description), this book focuses on U.S. Geography. This trail guide includes 5-minute daily drills, mapping, building a geography notebook--or using the optional student notebook--and a wide variety of additional projects. The literature unit in this book focuses on the Lewis and Clark expedition, using the book The Captain's Dog, by Roland Smith. Heavily used resources include the Uncle Josh's Outline Map Book or maps available on the Student Notebook CD. Other resources are also recommended to help enhance the study; these are listed below for your convenience. In this edition, all students use the Desk Atlas of the United States. A Geographical Terms Chart is recommended with these and all Trail Guide studies. We do not offer the chart that is recommended; however, it is available through Geography Matters. This Trail Guide was revised and updated in 2015 and includes a new QuickStart Section and new assignments throughout. Please note: students must use 2ed of Student Notebook with this edition. ~ Rachel S.

    If anyone can show us the history of the world, it is National Geographic. From the earliest times through 2005, the history of the world is described, outlined, and shown in full color. The book begins with a discussion of "prehistory" as an alternative to creation a section that spends about 30 pages guessing and assuming an alternative theory of early history. Actual recorded history is divided into 7 time periods: First Empires (ca. 7000 B.C.-200A.D), Ancient World (2500 B.C.-900 A.D.), Middle Ages (5th-15th Century), Early Modern Period (16th-18th Century), Modern Era (1789-1914), World Wars and Interwar Period (1914-1945), and the Contemporary World (1945-2005). Each of these sections is packed with information-rich text, photos, paintings, illustrations, maps, and short bios. There are two types of timelines in the book: a running timeline along the bottom of each page, which details the date of events and important people through history, and 4 fold-out timelines one of the Roman Empire, one for the Reformation, one chronicling the French Revolution, and one covering WWII. Point to note: there are photos and paintings that show nudity and dead bodies. 636 pgs, hc.

    This unique book tells the story of the American Revolution from both the British and American side, specifically focusing on George Washington and King George III. The book shares how similar the two men were and how events escalated to cause the war. It changes between sharing historical events from the British point of view to sharing them from the colonist point of view. Captivating text shares about how the different governments worked, the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Bunker Hill, fighting strategies of both sides, the Declaration of Independence, different battles, the founding of America, and what happened to both Georges after the war. While highlighting the important parts of the war, the book shows what drove each George to make the decisions he did. Full-color, detailed paintings illustrate each page, exemplifying the story and drawing readers in. The illustrations include characters with speech balloons sharing quotes from real people of the time period. This book tells the basic causes, events, and ending of the Revolutionary War while showing that there are two sides to every story. A fascinating, innovative look at a war from long ago and two men deeply involved in it. 60 pgs, pb, by Rosalyn Schanzer. ~ Rachel

    Rocks and Minerals are a favorite science topic in many households. This book from National Geographic Kids is full of interesting information about rocks and minerals. It contains plenty of photos, information, and fun trivia. This isn't just for reference; there are some cool geology activities, too. You will learn the differences between rocks and minerals, their uses, their formation, how they break down, and have some fun growing minerals and making your own fossils. There are interactive pages where you are to match gemstones in their natural state with finished gems and locate items made of stone that you might encounter on a daily basis. You will learn interesting trivia like how many stone blocks were used to build the Great Pyramid, which stone floats, or at what temperature diamonds vaporize. The photographer is Carsten Peter who is an "extreme photographer." You will see photos of caves and caverns, lava flows in Tanzania and Hawaii, Arches National Park in Utah, Stonehenge in England, glowing Mt. Etna in Sicily, giant crystals in Cave of Crystals in Mexico (my favorite), and more. These pictures will pique your curiosity and give you a yearning to see these places in person. (I know this book is for kids, but I have really enjoyed working through the interactive glossary at the back of the book, matching pictures, reading the information, and staring at the gorgeous photos.) Don't be surprised if the grown-ups sneak a peek at this book, too! ~ Donna
