    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.

    This book on family relations and husband and wife roles is the joint effort of Grace and Wendell (Rob) Robley. Rob and Grace teach and minister to families as a husband/wife team. It was that ministry that provided the material for this book. The cover of the book looks like it came right out of Leave It to Beaver, so you might expect a "husband is always in charge of the wife" attitude, but the Robley's take the attitude of equality under God. In the Holy Spirit of equality, Grace and Rob each write a chapter on four topics: God's Plan for Husbands and Wives; Charismatic Relationships; Charismatic Confrontations; and Charismatic Redemption. This small-format book has about 130 pages of meat in it, so it won't take long to read. But lengthy discussion is possible after reading each pair of chapters, as the book also contains a few "Searching Questions" such as "Is there favoritism in your family?" The practical advice, Bible references, and requests for the leading of the Holy Spirit should help you in your family's walk with the Lord. sc, 157 pgs.

    Born out of a teacher's desire to engage her young students in grammar basics, The Sentence Family tells a story. The family names are a bit unusual but each has his own distinct personality (and clothes color preference), so abstract terms like "declarative sentence," "exclamatory sentence," "verb," "noun," etc. all come to life. More importantly, students learn and remember how they interact one with another. Each "fact" (meaning the types of sentences and the parts of speech) is introduced with a little story and a drawing. For instance, "Adjective's twin sister is named Adverb. She is very fond of her brother, Verb, and likes to paint pictures of what he is doing. Because Adverb's favorite color is orange, she always wears an orange dress. . . ." You can see how this story flows naturally into identifying the words that modify verbs and prepares the student for underlining or highlighting those words in orange. Such identifications also help prepare the student for diagramming, which is also covered. This is a manual for the teacher rather than a worktext for the student. There are exercises outlined for the student but they result from the teacher-student interaction. In some instances, the teacher may need to write sentences out for the student. Four types of sentences and nine parts of speech (articles are included as a separate part of speech) are introduced along with beginning diagramming. Full-size, full-color pictures (for the teacher to re-create or share) are also included for each fact. 77 pgs, spiral-bound ~ Janice

    This workbook contains perforated pages that students can cut and fold into mini books. Each mini book introduces a word family using a catchy one-sentence rhyming story that incorporates four words with the same phonogram. Each mini book consists of 8 pages that build the sentence-story one line at a time. Students can practice letter formation by tracing the dotted outlines of the onset letters (the letters that appear before the rime) of each word. A review page is provided at the end of each booklet, allowing students to fill in missing letters to complete each key word introduced in the story. Kids will enjoy personalizing their mini books by coloring the cute illustrations on each page.

    A set of word cards featuring each of the words introduced in the series is also included. Students can use these to create flash cards or in a modified game of memory where they match a word with another in the same word family. While fun for kids, this book is also teacher-friendly, and includes detailed instructions for making and using the word cards and mini books. Pb, 64 pgs, reproducible. ~ Rachel P.

    While we like the original Wits & Wagers, we thought it was unfortunate that the game relied heavily on betting with poker chips, which we knew would be a negative for some families. Surprisingly, the manufacturer listened to similar feedback and has made over their excellent "trivia guessing game" into a family-style party game – with a lower price too! In this version, 3-5 players (or teams) receive a large and a small "Meeple" (wooden person-shaped marker), a matching dry erase card and a dry erase marker. One player reads a question, which is a trivia question with a numerical answer, like "How many men have walked on the moon?" Players write down their best guess on their dry erase card, and when everyone has written an answer, the cards are arranged from lowest to highest value. Now everyone gets to look over all the guesses, and place their Meeples on the guesses they think are best (closest to the answer without going over). Players can score points for either writing the winning guess, or for placing a Meeple on the winning guess. You don't have to know the answer to win – you just need to figure out who might! Includes 300 new questions (not found in original game), but can also be used with questions from the original. – Jess

    When our kids aren't involved in business or household duties, they tend to jump on the trampoline, hike, bike, swim, or play baseball or volleyball. So we did not see the need to offer a book on physical education. However, not all children are so inclined. With childhood obesity on the rise, physical fitness is becoming increasingly important in the schools. As of 2005, 48 states now have physical education requirements which need to be met for graduation. If P.E. needs more attention in your home, don't panic. Dr. Bruce Whitney (also a homeschool dad) has all the planning and instruction right here in this recently updated guide that's easy to read and use. In seven chapters, he offers a "quick start" with weekly lesson plans; ideas for motivating your family; information and instruction on building muscle strength, endurance and flexibility; information and instruction on aerobic fitness, instruction for games like Capture the Flag, Around the World Table Tennis and snow soccer; fitness tests with scoring charts; lesson plans to help build specific skills and even rules and teaching labs for sports. From specific exercises to strengthen your ankles to how to play softball, it's all here. Just think of this book as your family physical fitness trainer.Get moving! 166 pgs, pb.

    This book covers many holidays, special occasions, rituals, and traditions within many religions and in many parts of the world, and makes for an interesting read and a real education on different cultures. The discussion of each topic often includes variations that one might find, and, of course, the origin or history of the tradition. Topics are organized by seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. You'll find traditions that are well known in the American culture at large, such as Easter, Independence Day, Mother's Day, Christmas, wedding cakes, and even Super Bowl Sunday. You'll find some that may be a little less known such as Purim, Ramadan, Kwanzaa, and Winter Solstice. And you'll find some that are obscure for most of us here in the U.S., such as Maslenitsa and Vesak, and customs in China for when a baby is born. Not only will you travel the world, but you'll also get some creative ideas, such as what to do after the Thanksgiving meal, or ideas for making Mother's Day special. Besides educating us and our children, reading a book like this can remind us to savor life and stop going through the motions. 272 pgs, pb ~ Caryl

    From the folks who brought you Educating the Wholehearted Child, this devotional tool expresses 24 Biblical values in six areas of Christian life. These areas of emphasis include authority, relationships, possessions, work, attitudes and choices. Each value is the basis for a week (five days) of devotions (120 total devotions). Each day's devotion follows the same format: ask a question, read the Bible, discuss and pray. Each lesson also includes scripture memory verses (given in NIV, NASB and NKJV), a story starter, character quality definition and more. Discussion points look interesting and thought-provoking, and children from age five or six through high school would be able to participate. Instructions for making a binder for each child are also provided. The 2nd edition also includes the Kids Color-In pages (25 coloring pages in all), which were previously a separate item. If you are looking for a good way to start family devotions, give this one a try.

    The apple won't fall far from the tree in this clever workbook. Using the image of an apple tree, children fill in the blanks on the apples with letters found on the tree trunk to teach word families. Each tree has a dozen or so apples with a "__ay" or some other letter combination (_ate, __ug, __ine, etc.) The trunk has letters like w, gr, spr, and h (16 to choose from.) Kids determine which letters make good apple words. These would be a perfect activity to use with our plastic wipe-off pockets. Let kids use dry-erase markers and keep these exercises from year to year. Pages may be reproduced for your own classroom use only. ~ Sara
