    Same fast-paced, Dave Stotts-narrated adventures as the above series, but instead of places, this series takes on a tour of the Founding Fathers – er, Founding People (giving Abigail Adams her rightful place as a person of influence in the founding of our country). The first episode examines the Adams family – John, Abigail, and John Quincy; the second a collection of Benjamins – Franklin, Banneker, and Dr. Rush; and the third – without benefit of either a first or last name in common – familiar Americans George Washington and Noah Webster and the not-so-familiar Haym Salomon. Each biographical tour includes family homes, letters/diaries, and accomplishments.

    Some of the field guides we have at our house would never make it on a rock finding trek – they're simply too large to lug around. This rock and mineral guide from DK is just the right size for fitting into your jacket or shirt pocket – 3 ¾"x 5". It may be small, but it isn't short on information! You will find an introduction to rocks and minerals, a section of minerals divided by their coloration, and rocks divided into the 3 categories – igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. Pages are full of colored photos and facts about the specimen pictured. There is even a reference section at the back of this 160-page book. Never be without a reference again as you hike through the beautiful outdoors. ~ Donna

    Understanding our nation's heritage is an important element in any young person's education. One of the earliest periods of that heritage involved a struggle between the French and English on our shores. Now, children will be able to learn about the French and Indian War through the eyes of Patrick Egan, a fifteen-year-old who meets George Washington and serves with him during 1755. Both Washington and Egan soon learn that the French and Indians want to engage in battle in a new and strange way to wage war. Author Kris Hemphill takes readers on an exciting journey through the western part of Pennsylvania and into the action of the Battle of Monongahela. Ambush in the Wilderness includes drawings and a map of where the action takes place. Children will enjoy learning about history while being captivated by an exciting story. 90 pgs, hc. – John

    Aptly titled volume by Workman Publishing (previously Klutz) which encourages all to take the "plunge" into watercolors. Authored and illustrated by Thacher Hurd, noted children's book illustrator, who inspires even the most "undiscovered" talent through humorous instruction, wild colors and disarming art work. The package is likewise designed to spark the latent artist within: the wire-bound book contains 48 pages of watercolor paper, 24 pages of text packed with tips and techniques from the author, and a permanently affixed six-color box of professional quality Reeves watercolors with a #5 watercolor brush. All you need to provide is a glass of water and your (as yet) undiscovered talent.

    Here's a really tasty supplement to any study of the United States! While state studies often include state birds, flowers, capitals and other facts, most don't devote much time to "state foods." This book includes easy-to-follow instructions for preparing a complete meal - main course, side dish, and dessert - typical to one eaten by people of each of the 50 states. When too tempting to pass up, some states also include additional recipes for breakfast foods or snacks. Fun state food facts pepper the pages to keep you busy while the meal is cooking. As they say, "When in Iowa, eat as the Iowans do." - Steph
