    By the author of Caddie Woodlawn, this book shares the story of two sisters caught up in an unusual adventure. Mary, 12, and Jean, 10, are headed to Australia to live with their father. When their ship begins to sink, Mary and Jean hurry to help some of the passengers they've met with their babies. As circumstance would have it, Mary and Jean manage to make it to a lifeboat with four babies, and then their lifeboat is cast off for fear there isn't enough time to load more passengers. Mary and Jean do their best to keep the babies safe and happy while their lifeboat bobs around in the sea, and it is a relief when they land on a little island. They promptly name the island "Baby Island," but it isn't all fun and games - they need food, water, and shelter, and it's not easy with four babies in their care. 160 pgs.

    This fascinating book by the author of Body by Design delves into the world of microbiology from a Christian perspective. Although many biologists look at microbes as clues to our evolutionary history, many Christian biologists see microbes as further evidence for an all-powerful, innovative Creator. Like other life forms, there are both helpful and harmful microorganisms in our world, and this book is designed to introduce the reader to the world of viruses, bacteria, fungi and protozoa. While discussing infectious disease and pathogens, it takes the stance that these are the result of a sinful world and were not part of God's original design. Ten textbook-like chapters cover: microbes and their unique design, useful bacteria, harmful bacteria, protists, fungi, viruses, the immune system, emerging diseases, the origins of disease, and future plagues and pestilence. Formatted similarly to a textbook, chapters are divided into segments with interesting "asides" and chapter summaries, and black-and-white illustrations and diagrams augment the text. A full page of true/false and multiple-choice questions for each chapter is found towards the end of the book, and a page of critical thinking questions has also been included. I also appreciate the appendix on bacterial genetics, as this is often covered in college courses and will be useful for students to become familiar with. A lengthy reference list, glossary, and index are also included. 188, pb. – Jess
