    Grandfather, Thomas, and the cat, Ringo, find themselves in the middle of a storm, where all the lights have gone out. They're trying to figure out what to do because they can't see enough to read and the electricity is out, so they can't watch TV either. Grandfather decides to tell Thomas of a tale about when he was a little boy and a storm he found himself afraid in. He tells of how his bravery took over when he realized that his little dog, Melvin, was all alone outside and that he had to put his fear aside to venture out and rescue him.

    This beautiful book is so much more than just a guide to the stars. Written from a Christian perspective, Dr. Jason Lisle explains the celestial phenomena of God's creation. Beautiful photography, illustrations, and information take you on a tour through the event of stargazing – the movement of heavenly bodies, celestial events, telescopes, the moon, sun, stars, and planets, deep sky objects, and the relevance of astronomy.

    One especially interesting chapter that makes this stargazing guide a bit different is the chapter concerning the eye and how it works. This is a short chapter that explains the structure of the eye – cones, rods, iris, pupil, retina – and how they are involved in your vision and adaptation to lighting conditions. There are tips for adapting to night sky viewing with a telescope, binoculars, and with the naked eye.

    You will find this book helpful before you begin viewing, and while you are gazing at the night sky. Star charts will help guide you through the constellations, major stars, nebula, the Milky Way, and neighboring galaxies. Incredible photographs of the sun and its activity, the moon and its terrain and phases, and planets with their moons will leave you in awe of the universe in which we live. A planisphere (designed for 40 degrees north) is also now included with the book.

    This is a reference that will serve your family well, no matter the ages; and one that can be used for many years. 240 pages, hc. ~ Donna

    There is nothing that makes King Shahryar happier than his own dear wife. He and his brother, King Shahzaman, often exult in the wonderfulness of their wives. But one day, King Shahryar finds his wife has removed the veil from her face and is holding hands with the stable boy. Overcome with anger at her betrayal, he kills them both with his sword. That same day, he goes to visit his brother. There he discovers that his brother's wife has also betrayed him, as she shined her eyes upon the palace cook. They too, were put to death. The brothers console each other and conclude, "All women are fickle!" However, King Shahryar grows lonely, and he is just a little frightened of the dark. He comes up with a solution to his problem, which greatly troubles his wise royal Wazir. Every morning, the king marries a young lady who keeps him company through the night, and each morning his executioner beheads her before she can stop loving him. In this manner, the king passes one thousand nights. By this time, he has gone through one thousand women, and the Wazir is running out of noblewomen. Fearful for his own two daughters, the Wazir tries to send them away. But his oldest daughter instead asks to be taken to the king so that one other woman's life is spared. As cunning as she is beautiful, Shahrazad comes up with a plan to delay her execution. She hints at the wonderful story she would have told the king the next night, and he orders the execution to reconvene the next morning. That night, she weaves a wonderful story for him. But when dawn comes, she has not yet finished the tale. In this way, she passes 999 nights at the palace. This book contains 33 wonderful Arabian tales, as well as the clever Shahrazad's own story. - Melissa

    Have you ever laid in the grass looking up into the night sky and just wondered? This was a regular occurrence at our house when our kids were younger. Maybe you wanted to find the big dipper, know the name of that bright star over there, see a shooting star or figure out why the stars are in different places at different times. The answers to these questions and so much more can be found in this book.

    The author, Michael Driscoll, has packed a lot of information into this 93 page, hardcover book. Cute illustrations and drawings by Meredith Hamilton, magnificent photography, and a great deal of astronomy material fill the pages. The book is divided into three sections: Our Universe and Welcome to It, What’s Up There, and Exploring What’s Up There. The first section gives an overview of what’s in the night sky and information about the universe in general, including the believed age of 15 billion years. “What’s Up There” talks about the stars, sun, planets, asteroids, comets, galaxies, gravity, dark matter and black holes. Exploring What’s Up There includes tools for star gazers, traveling to the stars, astronauts, space station, constellations and much more. This last section includes information about the Zodiac and its role in astrology. A brief history of space is included at the end, along with a guide for finding things in the night sky.Additional reading and astronomy websites are given as well.

    You can get some experience finding constellations by using the Star Finder included with the book. Take it outside with you as you star gaze and use it to locate the night time formations. Two sheets of glow-in-the-dark stickers are also included. Planets, stars, and more can be used to bring the night sky into your room. ~ Donna

    In this powerful memoir, Elie Wiesel tells the story of his teenage years as a Jewish boy in Transylvania in the 1940s. With straightforward explanation of events and his own thoughts, Wiesel shares how restrictions against Jews slowly increased, how his family and friends were moved to a ghetto, how he was separated from his mother and sister and never saw them again, how he watched his father slowly change and die, and how he endured the horrors of Auschwitz. The explanations aren't terribly graphic, but you do get a realistic picture of the atrocities that were committed. Though the memoir itself has been around for more than forty years, this is a new translation by his wife, Marion Wiesel, who corrects some details and more accurately renders his testimony in English. Also includes a new preface and a copy of Wiesel's Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech. 120 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    It’s like a scene from a movie: in the early hours of the morning you’re trying to catch your last few hours of sleep, when suddenly you hear a little voice whispering from right in front of you. If this happens frequently to you and your little ones just don’t want to stay in bed, try Ok to Wake! This fun alarm clock/night light is set by parents and has a warm, yellow glow when the night light button is activated. When it’s time for the kids to wake up, an alarm goes off, the screen displays fun animations, and the light turns green, signaling kids that they can now get out of bed. It sounds simple, but this little clock has worked for many families! The clock also features and nap timer, snooze function, back lit display, and hidden parental controls. There’s even an included alternate face plate so your child can choose between the pink flower and the green alien. Requires 4 AA batteries, not included. – Laura

    This may look like a wooden stacking toy for toddlers, but it's really a logic game for preschoolers! Kids will develop logical reasoning, strategic planning, and visual/spatial perception as they select and stack colorful wooden blocks in various patterns. Kids arrange the 10 painted wooden pieces on 3 vertical pegs to recreate scenes from the challenge booklet. The first 24 scenes are "Day" scenes, illustrated in full color. The 24 "Night" scenes are illustrated in silhouette (so it's more challenging). Two blocks are smiley faces, two are cylinders, one is a triangle, and the rest are unconventional shapes that can represent almost anything (depending on the context in the challenge book.). The challenge book is spiral-bound at the top, stands up like a table tent, and has 48 challenges in 4 different levels. The "Night" challenges can be checked simply by swiveling the challenge book to look at the scene shown on the "Day" sideit should be identical to the silhouette. No matter what the challenge level, kids will have hours of fun with this hands-on game. And yes, it is a great stacking toy for toddlers, too! ~ Lisa

    The chupacabra is a legendary coyote-like creature which Latin American farmers believe responsible for killing their livestock during its nightly hunts. Glow-in-the-dark dice allow this attack game to be played in the dark for added eerie effect. Dice are identical, featuring 1 chicken, 2 chickens, 1 goat (on 2 sides), 1 cow, or a pair of chupacabra eyes. Each player gets 6 dice, and one player gets the "first attacker" chip for that round. All players roll their dice at the same time. The first attacker sees how many of his dice rolled chupacabra eyes – the more eyes rolled, the more animal dice you can take from your opponents. After the first attacker finishes, all other players get a chance to attack any other player. Dice taken in an attack are off limits for that round, but add to the dice total for the next round, increasing your chances of rolling more eyes or having a larger number of each type of animal so that they are less likely to be attacked. Play continues until one player has all the dice. Games go quickly for the 2-4 players.

    Don't get me wrong – I like stars, but I'm more of a life science girl. While I enjoy stargazing (especially on nights with a chance of shooting stars), I see books written for amateur astronomers and in between the terminology, the multiple charts, the equipment recommendations… it just seems so complicated! When I picked up this guide and realized it was something even I could use with ease, I thought other astronomy-phobes might appreciate it too. This little guide is several things in one: a field guide to constellations, a stargazing challenge-in-a-book, and a source for constellation-related mythology. Plus, it's got a handy little credit card-sized red LED flashlight in the back, so you can read it while stargazing – great idea! The bulk of the book contains constellation field guide entries for the four seasons of the year. Within each season, constellations are arranged in order by how easy they are to locate, and readers are encouraged to start with the easy ones and work towards the more difficult-to-find. Every constellation is given several pages – a full-color illustration of the constellation with major stars noted, the name, size, when to look for it, notes, details on the major stars, and related mythology or astronomical history related to the constellation. There are two methods given for locating the constellation; an overhead map and a horizon map. The overhead map tells you to face south, hold the book overhead, and use the red dot (the point directly overhead), the Big Dipper and the North Star to find the constellation (depicted with a yellow star). The horizon map is organized by the time of year, and tells you which direction to face and how high on the horizon to look. Ingenious! I think I just found a terrific stargazing "buddy." Additional information on stargazing and the solar system is also included; although from a secular publisher, the emphasis is on stargazing, not on the origins of the universe. 320 pgs, pb. – Jess
