    Farley Mowat's funniest book tells the adventures of Wol and Weeps, two owls from Saskatchewan who shake up a whole neighborhood, turn a house upside down, and outsmart Mutt, the dog hero of The Dog Who Wouldn't Be. Wol brings dead skunks to the family dinner table and terrorizes the minister, the postman, and the French teacher. Weeps is a comical bird, afraid of everything except Mutt, and he never does learn how to fly. Here is the heartwarming story of how a boy named Billy finds Wol and Weeps and unwittingly adds two new members to his family.

    Children love to learn by reading or listening to stories. This is a fictional account of Peter Rabbit and the birds in Old Orchard. While it is an enjoyable tale, accurate accounts of the different birds (Jenny Wren, the Blackbird family, Carol the Meadowlark, and Spooky the Screech Owl, to name a few) are given pertaining to coloring, habitats, and habits. Black and white illustrations of many of the different birds are included throughout the story.

    There are a number of important inclusions for a book that claims to be a guide to home school teaching methods. Fortunately, this one delivers. In a lively, conversational tone, the author considers reasons for homeschooling, different homeschooling methods, family and individual factors such as personality and learning styles, schedules, and putting it all together into a workable plan. Peppered with experiences from her own family and many others she interviewed, the result is an enjoyable read, a practical how-to handbook, and an inspirational and motivational journey into the depths of homeschooling.

    Don't think that Ms. King-Christison has produced a book just like all the others, though. She goes places others have not. For instance, while Waldorf and Montessori education are sometimes mentioned in terms of homeschooling, this book gives a thorough examination of these two methodologies and even contrasts them. When covering learning styles, she also delves into multiple intelligences and shows their relationship to homeschooling. While recognizing the existence of faith-based reasons for homeschooling, she maintains that homeschooling is more about promoting core values alongside the other reasons (avoiding standardized education, providing a challenging and dynamic environment, and managing special needs and developmental issues). And, for the record, the author does make reference to her faith and to the faith-based orientation of some homeschooling approaches, but these references are not exclusively Christian.

    The author's assessment of educational methods and approaches is one of the most succinct, yet information-full that I've seen. For each method – and she covers Montessori, Waldorf, Trivium, Charlotte Mason, and Unschooling in depth – she looks at its history (how it came to be), guiding principles (the heart and soul of a method), defining characteristics (tell-tale signs), what the critics say (and why you should listen), the homeschool spin (how it might look in your home), activities (tips to try and home), and ideal for…(families that are a best match). Her thorough coverage provides some valuable angles of perspective.

    Resources include booklists, online resources, and a whole collection of planning worksheets that you can either reproduce from the reduced copies in the book or download printable pdf versions of from the publisher's website.

    This book will get you started well in homeschooling – or give you a shot in the arm if you're a bogged-down veteran. Pick it up and take a look. You'll be glad you did. 297 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    "In the beginning God created…" not your typical opening sentence for an encyclopedic style reference book! Master Books and My Father's World have teamed up to provide homeschool families an alternative to the popular Usborne and DK encyclopedia books. This refreshing book provides fascinating details, beautiful illustrations and full color photographs, all from an evolution-free perspective! The introduction provides an overview of zoology, a synopsis of the flood, and God's design for animal life.

    Seven chapters examine the animal kingdom from single-celled organisms to mammals. Section One looks at single cell life forms, protists, moss animals, sponges, jelly fish, hydroids, sea anemones, coral and coral reefs. Section Two focuses on worms, snails, starfish, mollusks, and echinoderms. In Section Three, readers will explore the world of bugs, including beetles, weevils, butterflies, bees, wasps ants, flies, crickets, grasshoppers, and even fleas and lice! Other animals included are crabs, lobster, shrimp, crustaceans, spiders, scorpions, centipedes and millipedes. Section Four covers fish. Although fish are easy to identify, not all fish must live in the water. In this section, we learn the common characteristics of fish, and the exceptional characteristics of some, which allow them to break the rules. Amphibians and reptiles are featured in Section Five. Readers will "meet" newts, salamanders, frogs and toads as well as a few of my family's favorite animals: tortoises, turtles, terrapins, sea turtles, crocodiles and alligators, iguanas and chameleons, geckos, lizards, skinks, pythons, boas, and thread snakes, grass snakes, water snakes, garter snakes and a variety of venomous snakes. Birds are next. Did you know that penguins successfully navigate life in the sea by using their short stubby wings for swimming? This segment also introduces us to seabirds, shorebirds, herons, ducks, geese, birds of prey, game birds, pigeons, doves and parrots, cuckoos, owls, woodpeckers, crows, shrikes, sparrows, finches and weavers, warblers, thrushes, flycatchers, larks, swallows, treecreepers, plus many others. The seventh section examines mammals including whales, dolphins porpoises, egg-laying mammals, marsupials, bats, anteaters, sloths, armadillos, rabbits, aardvarks, hyraxes, mice, rats, squirrels, deer, camel, antelopes, sheep, horses, zebras, cats, dogs, bears, raccoons, pandas, mongooses, lemurs, monkeys and numerous others.

    This reference book would be a valuable asset to the Christian homeschool family bookshelf. These books will most definitely end up on my family's reference shelf and I am grateful we can offer this quality science reference book without the deluge of evolutionary teaching. ~ Deanne

    This devotional book combines the natural love children have for animals with a study of character traits they exhibit (good and bad) for a delightful end product of short but engaging devotionals for young children. It is divided into sections by habitat – farm, zoo, forest, water, sky, etc. Each section contains 4-8 devotionals, each highlighting a particular animal. Each devotional covers a two-page spread. One page holds the text, and the other is a full-page illustration along with a few simple questions about the devotional to discuss with your kids after you've finished reading it. The book is fully illustrated by cute watercolor illustrations; even on pages of text there are colorful pictures around the margins and in the background. Some of the animals covered include beavers, kittens, monkeys, owls, earthworms, pigs, hippos, and hummingbirds. 96 pgs, pb. – Melissa

    By the same illustrator as Curious George, H. A. Rey, comes this story about a mother kangaroo who is in despair because she has no pocket to carry her son, Freddy. All of the other mother kangaroos have pockets to carry their young in, but not Katy. Very sadly, she goes around asking all of the animals who don't have pockets how they carry their babies. She asks Mrs. Crocodile and Mrs. Monkey, and she observes the lions and the birds, but none of them give her an answer. As a last resort, she wakes up the wise old owl who is asleep in a dead tree. He tells her where to go to find a solution to her perplexing problem.

    In the middle of a quiet night, the music of the wind whispers to a little boy, and the owl calls him to a barn dance. Led by the fiddle-playing scarecrow, this charming, rhyming tale shows a silly all-night dance of all the barnyard animals coming together to do-si-do and swing their partner round ‘n round before sneaking back home in the early morning light. A Reading Rainbow book by Bill Martin Jr. 30 softcover pages. – Laura

    Okay, we admit it. We like to have fun, too. So when we saw these rollicking, humorous, action-packed books that are encouraging reluctant readers all over the country to read, we just couldn't resist! Hank the Cowdog: Head of Ranch Security. This canine is a cross between Maxwell Smart and John Wayne. Sandy Bauers of the Philadelphia Inquirer states "This mutt in disguise is adorably pretentious and frequently fumbling, yet never knowing it. Dogdom's Don Quixote. Nothing escapes his steely gaze - except, perhaps the perfectly obvious...". Filled with dry wit and subtle humor, these are books that you will enjoy reading to your children. Testimonials from parents, librarians, and teachers vouch for the ability of these books to "turn on" even the most reticent reader. We feel we must qualify our overall delight in these books, however. A couple of the books in the series include an owl character, Madam Moonshine, described as "a witchy little owl". You may want to avoid the books she appears in, so far we can only identify #2, #4 and #11. #9 has a Halloween theme. The "ghost" is a trick-or-treater, but you may want to avoid the Halloween theme.

    Even we know that custom nails, or nails with cute little designs on them are all the rage these days. And even if you have a daughter who isn't necessarily interested in art or crafts, she may see the instant appeal of creating tiny clever designs on her nails. Nail Style Studio is a Klutz kit-in-a-book that offers step-by-step instructions for 25 nail designs, and the tools you'll need to make them. The designs range from the cute (owls, cupcakes, and penguins), to striking (variations of polka dots, lightning, chevron patterns) to just plain off-the-wall (sharks and sneakers!). The photos and illustrated instructions walk you through creating the design, and you'll be ready to start immediately with the six bottles of peel-off practice polish, a custom dotting tool and 250 stick-on stencils! – Jess
