    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

    Ever wonder where the Treasure Islands are hiding in today's sorry lot of children's literature? If your children crave good, old-fashioned storytelling and a wild adventure, look no further than this series by Ted Bell which pits a young, patriotic hero against a band of pirates. Mix in a hearty dose of time travel, famous historical figures and set it all in the tumultuous backdrop of pre-World War II and whew, you are in for a wild ride. It all begins in 1939 on Graybeard Island, a small island strategically located in the English Channel between England and France. 12-year-old Nick McIver, his 6-year-old sister Kate, his WWI pilot father and his brave mother live in and man the island's lighthouse. In Nick of Time, Nick, his sister and his friends discover a German U-boat beneath the waters of their island. As they risk their lives to investigate further, Nick discovers a time machine in a chest belonging to his ancestor, Captain Angus McIver. In addition to the Nazi threat, he becomes the target of Billy Blood, a pirate who owns a twin time machine and travels through time capturing children and holding them for ransom. As Nick travels between his own time and 1805, he meets Captain McIver and Lord Nelson, commands a warship, tries to outwit Billy Blood, and attempts to rescue the captured children. Nick's adventures continue in the sea and in the air in Time Pirate, where Nick restores his father's old Sopwith Camel and tries to take out a German airbase on a neighboring island. Then Billy Blood resurfaces, kidnaps Kate, and hatches a plan to intercept the wealthy French warships as they travel to Yorktown to aid the American troops during the Revolutionary War. Drawn into Billy's schemes, Nick travels to 1781, meets George Washington and Lafayette, and struggles with the ethics of helping the Americans battle his own country so they'll be around in 1940 to become allies with England in WWII. Please note there is some mild language, primarily a few "damns" spoken by the pirates. 400+ pgs each, pb. Jess

    A wonderful unit study incorporating geography, history and science, based on the Holling C. Holling books. Students learn about three main geographic regions of the U.S. as well as a basic introduction to World geography. Designed to be used with maps (see below) that children color, label and complete as they study each region via the books. Paddle-to-the-Sea covers the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence River, and North Atlantic. Tree in the Trail includes the Great Plains and Southwest. Minn of the Mississippi leads children on an adventure down the Mississippi River and into the Gulf of Mexico. Seabird presents an overview of world geography. Pagoo follows the life of a young hermit crab, trying to grow up in a tide pool - without being eaten along the way. If you've never read a Holling C. Holling book, you're in for a treat! These are lovely, "old fashioned" books that simultaneously educate and entertain. Each blends science, history, and geography into a narrative told from the viewpoint of a central "character"'s adventures or experiences. It's difficult to imagine a more appropriate choice for studying these topics. Can be used as a one-semester course at 2-3 lessons per week or a 1-year course at 1-2 lessons per week.

    In Galileo's time, people didn't study with the purpose of learning new things. Instead, they studied what people before them had believed, like Aristotle and Ptolemy, two of the ancient Greek thinkers who had lived years before. It was not popular to have new ideas, but that didn't stop Galileo. Practically from the time he began school, Galileo was learning new things and challenging the old ideas through experiments and tests. This book shares the story of the man who had the courage and determination to ask questions and prove that he was right to a world that was not ready for his methods. Students will learn much about the world of Galileo as well as his scientific ideas through this interesting, readable book. 95 pages.

    Quintus is sixteen years old and proud of his Roman citizenship. With his father dead and his mother dying, his uncle steps in to find him an apprenticeship to a tentmaker outside of the city. He soon finds himself under the care of Aquilla and Priscilla in a world so different from what he is use to. The people he works with speak of love for neighbors, love for God, and love for a man who died for them thirty years ago. Through Quintus' eyes, you will learn a great deal about the historical events that took place in the summer of 64 A.D., as Christians become the central target for great persecution under the commands of Emperor Nero. This is a gripping story that depicts many of the horrors that Christians had to endure, but in a tamed down way that saves adolescent readers from too many gory details. A great fictional story that shows the difficulties that were placed upon early believers and how God worked it all to His Glory. 135 pgs, pb. – elise

    With a similar mix of lessons, tests, practice material, and games as Typing Instructor, this version is more accessible to younger kids and offers a fun, motivating and effective way to learn typing skills. There are 160 touch-typing lessons which cover all the basic keys (letters, numbers, symbols) on either a standard or a split keyboard (except for the 10-key number pad). There are ten different typing plans, each geared to a different age group. Regardless of the plan they are following, each student learns the keyboard by taking a tour of "Typer Island" and visiting five different lands as they journey to the Castle. As students journey through Old West, On the Water, In the Air, Over the Edge, and Under the Sea, they'll learn new keys and complete exciting challenges (usually timed) like typing to shoot words out of the sky, racing a Viking ship by typing words as quickly as possible, and typing words printed on sharks before they eat you! The activities build upon each other so students can't move on until their skills are ready. The changes in scenery add a lot of variety to the lessons, but you can still rely on helpful features including visual instruction with the 3-D guide hands and keyboard. Accuracy and speed (WPM) are also tracked throughout, with students getting instant feedback on their performance, and earning rewards as well.

    Of course, the arcade-like games will be the most fun to the beginning typist! The further students advance in the program, the more games will be available to them. Once they make it through all five lands, students capture the Castle, which opens the Lost City, a new addition to the program that provides two new games. While capturing the Castle and exploring the Lost City are the ultimate goals of the game, students earn treasures and points all through the program, which keeps them motivated and entertained. Students can also visit Explorer Isle at any point to play their favorite games (except for Lost City games), using only the keys that they have covered already. They can also visit Story Lagoon and practice typing one of 40 familiar stories, including fairy tales and classic literature. With this program's careful progression, interesting storyline, high-quality animation, 30+ games, multiple skill levels, and English/Spanish instruction, it's no wonder it is the winner of so many prestigious educational awards. This one comes highly recommended, folks

    Another fascinating Bible history book by Ruth Beechick, author of Adam and His Kin. The product of much research and knowledge of ancient history and the Bible, it is suitable for teens or adults as a short course in ancient history. But, more than that, it is the story of truth - and how that truth has come to be perverted through history. It is the story of righteous and wicked men and kings. It is the story of civilizations - how and where they sprung up and flourished. It's the story of our roots. The historical and literary evidences of Biblical truth, the tracing of the recorded truth that eventually became our Bible, and the chronology of our "family tree" are masterfully woven together in this extremely readable text. Throughout Ruth's narrative, we can see the origins of false religions and flawed world views. Taking us through Genesis 1-11, it contains six units, corresponding to the "books" written by the earliest recorders of history. Using the King James translation, each unit begins with the actual Scripture to read. A Scripture study includes activities to help students understand the reading - activities such as drawing maps, listing genealogies, memorizing key verses, noting specific words used, comparing the reading to other Scriptures, etc. Topic studies address particular references in the Scripture reading and expand on them, using historic, literary, and linguistic sources. Ruth's many insights and expert compilation of information make these studies engrossing. Each topic is followed by questions that can be answered orally or in writing. Further study has the student do a little research and reporting of his own. In these sections, source books and other readings are recommended. There are also suggestions for several correlating writing projects. If using the study with several students, you may want to assign each a different one. Other types of activities are also included, varying by unit. The book is recommended for use independently for junior high and up, or for a family study with children of all ages. I know my eight-year-old would enjoy this study as much (or more) as my older children. I would be surprised if parents purchasing this book as an independent course for their older children didn't end up reading it from cover to cover themselves.

    Jim Keath ran away from his life as a farm boy in Missouri when he was just eleven. Found by the Crow Indians, Jim lives with them for six years, trading the white man's ways for theirs. He is quite content, until he receives a letter from his brother. His parents have both died, and Jim's siblings are planning to head west in order to stake out some land. They want Jim to help them make the perilous journey, as well as stay with them since he is the only one old enough to lay claim to land. While the journey won't be easy, difficulty is added by the fact that Jim must work to win back their trust. 247 pgs.

    Another great songbook for Boomwhackers, this contains children's songs with color-coded music notes to match the Boomwhackers Tubes and lyrics directly beneath the colorful staff. It has twenty favorite songs like Old MacDonald, The Muffin Man, and On Top of Old Smokey. The colored notes allow anyone to easily play the songs and learn about reading music at the same time. Some of the songs in this book are the same as those in the Building Blocks Series, but the difference is that these songs use actual notes on a bar that are different colors and the other series uses colored squares without a bar. This book also does not have detachable charts for playing; in fact, the book measures only 5.5" x 8.5" and includes all the notes for a song on one page. It's a handy little book full of fun, easy-to-play songs that any Boomwhacker player would enjoy. It is designed to be used with the C Major Diatonic Scale Set.

    This sequel to The Shining Sword follows fourteen-year old orphan girl Akara and her adventures throughout Broad Valley in the Land of Man. After she saves Wenk the Wanderer from drowning, he gives her a mysterious gift—a small silver trumpet that makes not a sound. However, the trumpet, seemingly broken and useless, brings her much peace, comfort, and contentment, and seems to change her entire person. Soon, the trumpet's significance will be revealed as she must escape the orphanage and the Tall Woman, and as she endures under pressure to serve the Dark Power. Will the trumpet help her discover her history? In The Song of the Trumpet, the trumpets symbolize prayer, and the different ways the characters use them can be related to different prayers in the spiritual warfare of today's world. 213 pgs, pb.

    The year is 1841, and Japan has closed its borders to all outside influences, lest foreign devilry and barbarism seep into the country. Manjiro, a fourteen-year-old fisherman, and four of his friends are out on the seas searching for a good dinner when a terrible gale strikes their fishing boat and smashes it onto a rocky island. As the five friends attempt to survive in their desperate situation, Manjiro reveals his secret desire to be a samurai. Everyone laughs at the preposterous idea of a fisherman’s son becoming such a high-ranking individual, but Manjiro retains his dream. Soon after the incident, they spot a vessel offshore- an American vessel. Though no one wants to be corrupted by the barbarians, the group cuts their losses as the ship approaches and signal to it for help. After the group is rescued, mistrust and resentment stirs between the Japanese fishermen and some of the American sailors, but Manjiro tries his best to communicate and help out around the ship. As the captain takes a liking to the industrious (though occasionally clumsy) boy, he begins to take Manjiro under his wing, teaching him as much as he can. However, this leaves Manjiro in a troublesome spot- he longs to return to Japan, but if he does, his country will label him as a traitor influenced by foreign troublemakers. But if he continues to travel with the Americans, he has no idea where it will lead him. As Manjiro struggles to make his place among the vessel and its crew, every decision and interaction weighs heavily on his shoulders. Newberry Honor Book. 301 pgs. Paperback.

    The Old Captain is retiring, and he’s set up a memory challenge to determine who will succeed him. As a member of his crew, you must compete to win his favor by remembering exactly where in the ocean you left your pirate-y stuff! To begin, each player receives 12 different cards illustrating sharks, mermaids, treasure, parrots, etc. and arranges them in a 3x4 grid. After a minute to memorize the location of each, players flip their cards over and the game starts. Each turn a card portraying 1 of the 12 figures in a player’s possession is revealed – players race to place their ship on their own card which (hopefully!) matches the revealed card. If it matches, players are rewarded gold coins. But if you mess up, you must toss one of your hard-earned coins into the sea! Further spicing up the game are a series of special cards which shuffle players’ cards into a new formation, allow players to check a card, or let everyone swap two of an opponent’s face down cards! Can be easily adjusted in difficulty for younger & older players. For 2-6 players; 20 minute playtime.
