When an old man on the dock tells them they’ll never make it, Cyrus takes it upon himself to make sure the people arrive safely. This is one of the cutest children’s stories I have read in a while, and I just might have to add it to my own library! By Bill Peet, 46 softcover pages. – Laura

    A loyal supporter of the American and French Revolutions, Thomas Paine wrote Rights of Man in 1791 as a response to Edmund Burke's Reflections of the Revolution in France. Shocked and outraged by Burke's writing which denounced the principles behind the French Revolution, Paine wrote Rights of Man as an answer to Burke's attack. Driven by his pursuit for social justice, the Rights of Man tell of Paine's political philosophy regarding democracy and equality and provides many compelling arguments for social change. A critic of the hereditary, monarchial government, Paine believed "the rights of man" had its origin in nature and were not given through another man's authority. Although they are benefits many of us take for granted today, Paine was one of the first to argue for ideas such as free education, old age pensions, social security, minimum wage, and welfare benefits. Unabridged. ~ Enh

    Arrrrrr ye ready to push yer luck out on the high seas, sonny? In this easy-to-learn pirate-themed card game of luck and loss, the object is to collect cards from 10 different suits and get the highest score. Each card has a “suit” and a point value. During each round, players flip over cards from the draw pile until they choose to stop and collect them—but if they reveal two cards with a matching suit, they go bust and discard all cards in the playing area!

    While this can make for a pretty dicey card game by itself, there’s a catch: each of the 10 different suits has a unique “suit ability” which activates whenever the card is revealed. These may allow you to steal or destroy other players’ hard-earned cards, or even force you to play several extra cards without a chance to stop!

    Once the draw pile is depleted, all players count up their highest-value cards from each suit and the player with the most points wins. To spice things up, there are special character cards (which influence certain suit abilities and even other players!) and Game Variants, which change how the game is played. If you’re looking for an easy card game with a little more pizazz than Uno, a fun family game people of all ages can enjoy, or even a simple party game, Dead Man’s Draw is a great choice. Just be warned—thar be no safe havens in these treacherous waters! 10-15 minutes. For 2-4 players.

    (Note: one of the character cards, Madame Margot, is portrayed wearing a somewhat revealing dress. If deemed inappropriate, feel free to dress the character more modestly via permanent marker.

    Growing up, if I was given historical fiction presented in clear language for my age level, I was hooked in a matter of minutes. KidVentures presents four Bible stories in this same manner. Trouble Times Ten features an Israelite boy named Ben who is afraid of water. When Moses tells his family that they need to cross the Red Sea to freedom, will he be able to trust God or will he be left behind? Ruled Out tells the story of Ethan who lives with the people who made it out of Egypt. Moses has been up on Mount Sinai for a while, and the people are starting to change, which scares Ethan. Galen and Goliath tells the story of Galen, a young Philistine who is told to kill a young boy to prove his bravery and loyalty. Trouble comes when Galen must decide if he wants to honor the giant Goliath or the God of the Israelites. The Prophet's Kid tells the story of Ezra, who just wants to have fun. He goes to a meeting he isn't allowed to attend, which lands him in a heap of trouble that even causes someone's life to be at risk!

    All these stories are bound into a 313-page softcover book that includes a parent/teacher guide filled with discussion questions, background information, and learning activities. Great for Bible studies or recreational reading. – Laura

    This beautiful story will remind young and old of the true meaning of Christmas. Peter discovers the origin of hanging stockings at Christmas, the generosity of a man named Nicholas, and is reminded of God's love and generosity toward us. Set in the 1800s, Peter's father is away at sea and Peter is selling newspapers to raise money to buy a model schooner and to help his family during this difficulty time. His pastor shares the story behind the hanging of stockings and Peter prays that God will help him be generous with his mother and sisters this Christmastime. Although written for younger children, the lesson taught through the stories of Peter and Nicholas is a reminder to us all that "it is more blessed to give than to receive." 32 pgs, hc. ~ Donna

    The time-honored classic Bible storybook by this same name was originally published in 1948. Based on the premise that children should know the Bible stories as early as possible, this edition has been updated in language particularly for readers ages 6 to 8. Key points are explained in a way that preserves the story but does not include aspects that are age inappropriate. For example, when discussing the reason for Joseph’s imprisonment, the author writes, “Then the wife of the rich man became angry at Joseph. She told lies about him. Her husband believed the lies and put Joseph in prison.” Sixty stories (28 from the Old Testament and 32 from the New), each about two pages long, incorporate traditional style, full-color illustrations. The Old Testament stories span from creation through Daniel. The New Testament stories focus only on the Gospels and end with Jesus’ ascension. This would serve as a good introduction to Bible stories. 6” x 8 ¼”, 142 pp, hc. ~ Ruth
