Add this to any study of the Constitution or Early America for some in depth information on this interesting, real life character in American history. ~ Sara

    First published in 1967, this book by S.E. Hinton emerged as a popular book for older teenagers and young adults and has remained popular for 40 years. It tells the story of teenagers growing up in a dangerous city, with two warring groups of boys: the greasers and the Socs (richer society kids). Ponyboy, the main character, is a teenage greaser who lives with his older brothers after his parents' deaths. He's younger than the rest of the gang, but they accept and protect him. When a friend accidentally kills a Soc while protecting Ponyboy, the two try to outrun the revenge and violence that follows them. It's a heartbreaking but moving story about two different gangs and the pain they cause each other. Please note: violence, teenage smoking, and general "street life" themes are present throughout the story. 180 pgs, plus an an interview with the author and discussion questions, pb.

    Almost everyone knows the story of Noah and the flood but the picture that many Christians have of the ark's design, construction, and function are not only inaccurate but detrimental to the belief in a global flood and a literal interpretation of the Bible. In this fascinating book, the author, Tim Lovett, unveils a new ark design based on biblical information and ancient shipbuilding capabilities. As Lovett takes you through the planning, designing, construction, sailing, and living in the ark, you'll begin to understand the hard work on Noah's part and follow the evidence that there was indeed a worldwide flood that his ark survived. I grew up knowing all about the flood and ark but reading this book was the first time it was brought to life in a real way. Throughout the book are beautiful, full-color illustrations and photographs of design, construction, and life aboard the ark that make it even more real. With scientific, historical, and biblical evidence, this book offers one of the best, most realistic looks at what Noah's ark was really like. 74 pgs, hc. ~Rachel

       This book is written to those kids (particularly ages 4-11) who love to stay inside. Really! 101 widely creative and fairly low prep ideas guide kids to be more active and access the potential of the great outdoors. Practical, simple and fun ideas span seasons and locales. Take a matchbox challenge - what interesting things can you find in 15 minutes that will fill a matchbox? Play shark and have a blindfold shootout with your water guns. Trail ants or build a human sundial. Make a mini solar cooker, a hanging lettuce ball or a snow labyrinth with your boots. Activities vary from single person to group; contemplative to active; little/no supplies to medium amount (but practically all are found around the home) and little/no to medium construction time. Supply lists; large, colorful, demonstrative photos and drawings and the clear directions will help all ages get outdoors. Kids can self-direct for most projects--at least an older child who can read directions is necessary. In the back is a supply resource list, a traditional index and a well-organized list that helps you find specific activities based on theme, season, location, age, or project length. 8.25x8.25”, 224 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    With readable chapters and familiar, doable projects (25 of 'em, to be exact), this book provides a solid biology "lab" foundation for elementary students studying life science. Eight chapters cover characteristics of living things, cells, microorganisms, plants, plant life cycles, adaptations, animal life cycles, and conservation. Each chapter contains explanatory text at the beginning, with bold vocabulary words, vocabulary definitions and grayscale illustrations throughout. Several activities are included at the end of every chapter, along with a supply list and step-by-step instructions. While you won't find many new lab ideas here, I can appreciate that the edible cell model suggests using various fruits instead of all candy, and I really like the design of their pond plankton net! Part of the "Build It Yourself" series from Nomad Press, this volume would be a great addition to an informal study of life science at the elementary level or a fun mini-course for the summer. 122 pages, pb. - Jess

Step-by-step project instructions are interspersed with facts about creatures and natural phenomena. Spring ideas include making bird houses from plastic bottles, collecting swamp water to observe, and juggling bubbles and lots of games to play with friends.

Fall activities include watching animals prepare for winter, Frisbee golf, making rock art, and hide and seek games. Winter has a lot of indoor games like pick up sticks, cards, coin tricks and other stuff like feeding birds with suet you make and playing hopscotch in the snow.

    More than a coloring book, the activities here will have your child following directions, thinking creatively & drawing. They will also glean an understanding of prepositions, left/right and adjectives! Each 2 page spread has the start of a drawing in bold black lines with some simple bright color added. I like how the artist fills the page about halfway and your child gets to finish as he chooses. You are given a task, such as Bear’s bag is upside down. Draw what is falling out; or Duck’s shampoo bottle is empty. Please make it full. What color is the shampoo? The activities are simple, smart, creative and fun. For parents wondering how to introduce grammar, this is a gentle start for your younger students. It’s also just a delightful book that would make a fun gift with a box of crayons! 8.5” x 10.5”, 96pp. ~ Sara

    Whether or not you've read the book, this is a fascinating DVD. You learn a lot about the construction and theories about the ark, while on-screen models are built at high speeds. It takes it much further than just covering the different theories; it shows what other people think about the ark's design. It also shows different ark designs and describes why some designs wouldn't actually work. It's a very good DVD for learning about Noah's ark and all the surrounding debates about it. The computer-generated images are nice, too, like the two-by-two animals walking into the ark. 25 min.
