    This witty and lighthearted play by Oscar Wilde is a comic masterpiece. Performances of this comedy have brought joy to audiences worldwide, and today you can have this play come to life in your own home. The book is in script format, complete with stage cues so you may reenact the play with your children, or simply read along and use your imagination to put the characters on the stage. The play begins in Algernon Moncrieff's London flat, where the main character Jack (whose city name is Ernest) has proposed to dear, sweet Gwendolen. However, this simple proposal soon reveals to Gwendolen's mother, Lady Bracknell, that Jack is not on her list of eligible young men as a suitable husband for Gwendolen. Lady Bracknell quickly goes to work interviewing Jack to see if he might be a good suitor for her daughter. After a series of questions, things are looking good for Jack; however, one piece of the puzzle is missing. Jack does not know his blood-line, as he was found in a black leather hand-bag in the cloak room of a train station. After instructions from Lady Bracknell, it is clear that Jack must find some relations, more importantly his parents, before he will ever be allowed Gwendolen's hand in marriage. Continue on with the story as it twists and turns towards the surprising ending. Unabridged paperback, 54 pages. - elise

Sal, a teenage girl who loves the country life, is on a trip with her grandparents and tells them a story about her friend Phoebe who lives in a city. As she tells the funny story of energetic, imaginative Phoebe and how her mother disappeared, the reader also learns about Sal's life and the tragedy of her own "missing" mother. Full of both humor and sadness, this book is not to be missed.

      I used to love encyclopedias as a kid! Every page had something interesting and wonderful to learn. You get the same sense of wonder when it is all in one book (not a set of 30 books like the old days)! This is a large book with lots of color photos and illustrations. The text is presented in short paragraphs, captions and text boxes. The language is simple but full of great vocabulary words. Topics covered include: the human body, people/places, the arts, Earth, animals/plants, science/technology and the universe. This is an updated edition, but the copyright is 2009. I looked for outdated information and found a few things: Pluto is still called a dwarf planet, there is a huge iPod shown as being cutting edge technology, also some things about computer games and the internet are passé, and the mobile phone shown is a flip phone. The rest of the book stands up to today’s information. You can certainly use it as a resource for science and social studies. Also, this book mentions prehistoric life as being millions of years ago, so it is not from a Christian worldview. 144pp, sc, 9.5x12” ~ Sara

    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

Or that it is estimated that there may be 100,000 miles of blood vessels in a human body: enough to circle the world four times? This is just a sampling of the fascinating details your children will learn. Comparisons cover a range of foundational science concepts including space, earth science, weather, human biology, zoology, computers and engineering. Excellent resource to set out on a coffee table to encourage free time reading or reluctant readers.

    Award winning author illustrator Gene Barretta provides an entertaining, unique look at a famous historical giant. Leonardo da Vinci has never been so relatable and understandable! Written to compare the ideas and discoveries of the famed scientist, this book begins with a brief introduction before moving into a 2-page-spread of Leonardo da Vinci's discoveries and the impact on our lives today. For example, in   Neo Leo, the Neo side states, With the use of modern imaging technology, doctors now understand that when blood moves through the heart, it forms a vortex that opens and closes the valves. The flip side, Leo, explains Leonardo had already figured it out. Through detailed body dissection and simulated water experiments, he discovered and diagrammed accurate examples of vortex formation in the blood.40 pgs, pb. ~ Deanne

    Learn what your body needs to be healthy and then prepare these delicious recipes to please not only those parts, but your taste buds too! This cookbook teaches children about the nutrients needed by individual parts of the human body as well as keeping the body as a whole healthy. After getting acquainted with the kitchen through the cooking tips and safety rules on tools, terms, and appliances at the beginning of the book, children are ready to start meeting the cravings of their body. The rest of the book is divided into two sections. In the first, chapters focus on separate body parts or systems such as the heart, blood, muscles, bones, teeth, nerves, digestive system, and hair, teeth and nails. Each of these pieces of the body requires different nutrients and vitamins to stay in good shape. Each chapter in this section begins with an explanation of that body part, discussing the features of the part including how it works and what it needs to work well. Following this interesting introduction is a fun activity or experiment that further explores that amazing body part. The rest of each chapter holds 4-6 scrumptious recipes containing the nutrients important for that part of the body. The recipes, marked from 1-3 based on difficulty, list the time and tools needed for preparation in addition to the needed ingredients and clear directions. The chapters in part two follow the same format but focus on the body as a whole, concentrating on the food pyramid, energy and exercising, maintaining a healthy weight, and fruits and vegetables. Again, each of these sections holds an informative description, fun exercise, and easy, tasty recipes. Appendices hold the nutrient content of the recipes, a guide to food labels, and tips on what is safe to eat. 184 pgs. ~ Steph

    Detectives today are pretty dependent on science for digging further into evidence. All kinds of materials, from hair and blood, to fibers and bugs are sent to crime labs for further study, and often, a single clue can solve the case. With this book, kids can go "behind the scenes" in a crime lab, and learn all about different pieces of evidence and how they are studied, and how they can participate in their own way. Five chapters include forty experiments in areas including observation, investigating clues left at the scene of a crime, how chemistry and biology are used to analyze evidence, and how documents can help solve crimes. In the first chapter, young detectives will hone investigative skills by observing scenes and remembering details, using their senses to identify hidden objects, setting up a crime scene and looking for evidence, interviewing witnesses, and more. The second chapter goes into more specifics, with kids making and identifying lip prints, fingerprints and voiceprints; examining strands of hair, examining cloth and paper fibers, making casts, examining impressions, learning how ballistics evidence is gathered and more. In Chapter 3, students will test mysterious substances to discover their identity, while Chapter 4 discusses how teeth impressions and bones are studied, how to estimate height from foot size, the basic principles of DNA testing, how decomposition aids forensic scientists and more. In Chapter 5, kids can study indented paper, analyze handwriting and typewriting, and counterfeiting. A well-rounded and exciting group of experiments that gives students a not-too-grisly glimpse into scientific crimefighting. - Jess
