    George and Lennie are two very different men trying to make a life for themselves. George is a small man with a quick temper, and Lennie is a huge man but with the brain of a small child. The two have been traveling together for quite some time. Lennie often gets the two into trouble, and George is quick to point out that life would be easier if he could travel without Lennie. But he told Lennie's Aunt Clara that he would take care of Lennie, and nearly every single day George tells Lennie the story of how they are going to have their own ranch someday, unlike other guys. Lennie is obsessed with small animals and George always tells him that he can take care of the rabbits, which excites Lennie to no end. But Lennie's strength and lack of intelligence get the two men into trouble time and again, until George can no longer pay the consequences for Lennie.

    Linda Hobar, the author of this world history series, states in the beginning of this book, "I believe history is the story of God revealing Himself to mankind and that He did it most perfectly through the person of Jesus Christ…the "mystery" is the gospel of Jesus Christ." What a refreshing and different view from most world history curriculums! Those looking for a world history program that aligns the stories of mankind with the living story of God will truly appreciate this Bible-centered approach to the history of the world. Picking up where Volume 1 leaves off, this volume begins with the Pentecost and the first followers of Jesus (including Paul) around 29 A.D and chronologically continues through the early church and moves into the Middle Ages, covering the years through about 1456 A.D. The format of this book is very similar to that of the first volume; however, there are some small differences. Firstly, there are fewer lessons (84 as opposed to 108), but these lessons are slightly longer, offering more information on a given topic. Lessons generally take the form of real-life biographies, sharing the stories of men and women who changed the world while simultaneously showing the relationship between God and the world during that period. Another new feature is the bolding of key words to aid students in finding the information again later for activity or vocabulary purposes. As in the first book, this volume includes pretests to be given at the beginning of each week, end of the week reviews, memory card suggestions, bi-weekly quizzes, quarterly worksheets, and two semester tests. Memory cards are fact cards that students create for each lesson, capturing the main points and dates on an easy to review flashcard. The end of the week reviews continue to hold timeline and mapping exercises, providing students with helpful visuals of when important figures lived and where places studied are located. This volume also contains even more activities following each lesson than the first volume. This is simply to provide you with more choices, not to overwhelm you with feeling like you should do them all! These activities are generally categorized into younger, middle, and older student activities in order to accommodate the curriculum to a wider spread of grade levels, with the youngest comprised of many hands-on activities to help them experience history, middle activities a combination of hands-on exercises with research, and the older ideas centering on research, encouraging students to learn more and dig deeper into the people and lessons from history. The activities and memory cards, as well as the weekly and quarterly reviews and tests, are meant to ensure long-term retention of the key events and people throughout history, as opposed to the short term memory capacity we often hold history (and other subjects!) lessons in. The back of this hefty 700-page book contains the outline maps for the lessons, additional fun supplemental activities, suggestions of books and resources for further study of many of the topics, a chart of materials needed for the activities found in each lesson, and a full answer key. The fascinating journey across the continents continues as students discover who lived when and the way God worked His plan throughout this period of history. ~ Steph

    I love reading about the guiding hand of God in our nation's history. I find the story fascinating and the men of faith and conviction inspiring. This book is written in the same vein. Based on the assumption that all of history is providential, we learn how God's presence was evident at our nation's founding in the hearts and minds of the men who fought for independence and framed the Constitution. The book opens with an overview of geography and ancient history before moving to American history. A portion of the book is devoted to the history of education in our country. Later chapters focus on our decline as a nation, and a reconstructionist view is presented for bringing our nation back to what the authors believe God wants it to be. This book is used as a teacher resource for the Beautiful Feet American history studies. Lots of pictures and illustrations. 300 pgs.

    If you want to dig a little deeper into source documents referred to in America's Providential History, get the accompanying Documentary Sourcebook. Inspiring in its own right, this book includes speeches and documents that portray the Christian influence in the founding and history of our nation. A sampling of the offerings in this book includes excerpts from Columbus' Journal of His First Voyage, Fast and Thanksgiving Days of New England, Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution, Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom, Washington's Farewell Address, excerpts from Democracy in America, the 1853 report from the Senate Judiciary Committee about the importance of congressional chaplains. 136 pg, pb.

    For ease of tying these two books together, consider the Teacher's Guide, which includes: APH chapter outlines; study questions for each of the 18 chapters, with answers; three exams, with answers; and a list of books for further study. 102 pgs, pb. ~ Bob

    Finally! A game that satisfies that universal love of popping bubbles. This simple game has just one piece - a small, round, soft silicone board composed of 28 “bubbles” in six different rows. Each bubble is marked with a picture of a small mouse, and the object of the game is to force your opponent to be the one to press the last mouse into its hole. The playing board (looking remarkably like a piece of cheese) sets on any flat surface or could travel easily in the car. Did you send the last mouse into its hole? Just flip the “cheese” over and start again. Game play takes approximately 5 minutes.

    An extremely informative book about the first settlers in America: their landing; first year; and typical lives of men, women, and youngsters in the colony. Although from a secular publisher, their religious nature and motive in coming to America is very clear, as the author does an excellent job of projecting the general character and even speech of the Pilgrims. Sewall has researched her subject well, apparently using journal, diaries and other writings of those who arrived on the Mayflower. Quotes from some of these sources are interspersed throughout.

    Picture this: you are being chased by a pack of rare carnivorous rabbits in a nature preserve in central Missouri. Hunting season is over, and the rabbits are a protected species. The nearest ranger station is a mile away. You only have 5 things with you: a ten-gallon drum of maple syrup, a magical flying dishtowel, a particle accelerator, a circus of trained mice, and one concerned parent. Which 3 will you use to engineer your escape?

    This truly is a game of extreme storytelling! Each round the Judge draws 1 Situation card while players think about how to use exactly 3 of their Resource cards to solve the scenario. When everyone is ready, players begin telling their story in the most creative way possible, revealing the resources they use as they enter the story. When everyone is finished, the Judge declares 1 story the best, and the storyteller takes the card! The first player to win 3 rounds wins. If you’ve ever played Snake Oil or Pitch It, consider this their wackier counterpart! For 4-7 players.

    The good news is that, as Christians, we know how the story turns out - we win! The bad news is that, as Christians, we often have trials, some very unpleasant, along the way. Trial and Triumph: Stories from Church History presents 46 gripping stories of brothers and sisters in Christ who stood firm in the face of bitter persecution. The brief four to five page biographies of such greats as Polycarp, Tyndale, Luther, Calvin, William Carey and Hudson Taylor show what God can do through ordinary people who trust and obey Him. It is inspiring to read of these men and women who defied ungodly authority, whether in the church or in civil government, and stood on the Word of God.

    Polycarp was a leader in the early Christian church at Smyrna during a time of Roman persecution. When he was seized, Polycarp was told to swear an oath to Caesar or he would be fed to the lions; but he refused. He was told to swear an oath to Caesar or he would be burned at the stake; but he refused. As the flames were about to end his earthly life, he shouted out a prayer of praise to the Lord.

    Elizabeth was the beautiful daughter of the king of Hungary. She was filled with compassion for her people during a time of great famine. Against the wishes of the royal advisors, she emptied the grain bins and personally gave clothing and meals to the poor. After the death of her husband, Elizabeth was put out on the street. She continued to praise God for allowing her to serve the poor and began spinning wool to earn a living. When her father found out about her circumstances, he begged her to come back and share in his inheritance. But Elizabeth said that she had already received her inheritance from her Father in heaven, the eternal mercy of her Lord Jesus Christ. She served the poor until her death from a fever at age 24.

    This book is excellent material for family reading or individual inspiration. - Jerry

    In true Klutz form, these felted critters are wildly colored and packed with personality. The generous swatch of wool roving features deep lavender, goldenrod, electric aqua and magenta, resulting in blue squirrels, yellow foxes, pink bunnies and purple mice. The book details five projects including a squirrel, cat, bunny, fox, and mouse (with variations on the mouse to make a hedgehog). Step-by-step, full-color illustrated instructions are provided for each project along with "finishing touches" to help troubleshoot any unfinished areas. You get enough wool to create all of the projects, plus a special 3-pronged felting needle and a foam block. If you have multiple crafters in the family, this would be a great kit to allow each child to create their own project. – Jess
