    The stunning illustrations of birds and dragons give this board game a very mystical feel. It's all strategy, though, as you attempt to plot your path and move your stone across the board. Every tile placed builds and alters the path. Other players might turn your path aside, so plan carefully! For 2 to 8 players with a playing time of approximately 20 minutes.

    The perfect non-tech, take along, brain-sharpening puzzle. A deck of 48 challenge cards starts the process. Each card has pictures of one of four path boards and several of the twelve possible path pieces. That's the puzzle. On the back of the card is the solution. The pliable vinyl pieces are various shaped collections (think Tetris pieces) of 1 cm squares some purple and some green. The two, double-sided, laminated cardboard path boards show rectangles composed of squares; one is 6 squares by 6 squares; another 6 squares by 8; another 6 by 10, and the last is also 6 x 10 but with 4x4 segments cut out of two corners. [The larger path board is in two pieces that fit together to form the whole.] Each path board has two purple squares at diagonal corners. Solve the puzzle by placing the repositionable pieces (which cling to the puzzle boards) in such a way that a path of purple squares runs continuously from one corner to the other. Path boards, challenge card deck, and path pieces all fit in a small 5" x 6" x 1" box that slips easily to slip into purse or back-pack. For 1 player.

    As its name suggests, this inexpensive book is an introduction to career exploration and possible educational paths. Since these are uncharted territories for most junior high students, such a guide is useful, even necessary. The first step is the Career Interest Assessment, which prompts students to consider the things that interest them, how they would describe themselves, and what free-time and school activities they enjoy. Twelve major interest areas are identified, and students begin to see which groups interest them the most as well as which work activities are included in each group. Choices in these areas comprise the start of an Individual Career Plan (ICP), and there is a sample ICP format included although it is not reproducible. The ICP continues to be "fleshed" out as a student considers whether he likes to work with data/ideas, people, or things; chooses a desired work environment; and also examines the physical requirements for various jobs. Then it is time to evaluate and chart ones academic path - what it takes to get to where they are beginning to think they want to go. The concluding section is how to research specific jobs. This book seems most useful for Jr. High to early high school students (7th to 10th grades) or the occasional late high-schooler who hasnt yet considered these things. 112 pgs. ~ Janice

Fifty-eight fields of study are included and everything from where graduates find jobs to overall job satisfaction is covered for each. Along with annual median salary, employment outlook through 2018 and graduate school attendance patterns are also provided. 546 pages, soft cover. Rachel

    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.

    Eleven-year-old Elijah lives in Buxton, Canada, a settlement of runaway slaves near the American border. Elijah is the first child in the settlement to be born free, so he grows up without the firsthand experiences of slavery that his parents and the other settlers had to endure. Most of the other people just see Elijah as a "fra-gile" boy who's scared of snakes and talks too much. Everything changes when a former slave steals money from Elijah's friend, who has been saving up to buy his family out of captivity down South. Elijah bravely sets out to catch the thief, encountering obstacles, danger, and challenges along the way. The back of the book includes biographical information about the author, as well as information about the real Buxton settlement that inspired the story. A Newbery Medal Winner. By Christopher Paul Curtis. 341 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Now you can enjoy Catan with dice! A double-sided, color score sheet features two different ways to play. Each one holds a map of Catan at the bottom and a building guide and scoring area at the top. The maps show a pre-set path of roads, settlements and cities, which have to be built in order, though you can choose different routes, and six knights around the outside. On the first scenario (which I favor!), each item to build is marked with a value of victory points that you receive for building it, with the values getting progressively higher as you move further around the map. Each player gets 15 turns to make as much progress as he can by rolling the six dice up to three times per turn in hopes of tossing the right combination of resources to build items. The second scenario has the same map but there are no values on the building items; the point system is the same as the board game, and you can also achieve largest army and longest road as you try to be the first player to reach 10 victory points. - Steph

    Jean Fritz attempts to unravel an American mystery that is well over 400 years old. In her research for this book, she even went on site to Cape Hatteras where there was an archeological dig in search of clues for what happened to the colonists at Roanoke. She begins her story introducing us to such prominent characters of the 1500s as Queen Elizabeth of England and Sir Walter Raleigh. At this time, the Spanish ships were already making pilgrimages to the New World in search of treasure. However, now England was interested in starting a settlement and beginning to colonize what would later be called New England. The first place the English attempted to settle was Roanoke. However, there were many obstacles that caused difficulty for the new settlers. They soon found that someone must be sent back to England for more food and supplies. Governor White went, but the departing and returning trips were not easy. By this time, England was at war with Spain. Governor White arrived back at Roanoke and found the settlement deserted. Today, we can still only speculate what happened to the people who once lived there. This book explains several of the theories that are proposed. Wonderful border illustrations, small portraits, diagrams, landscape and scenery by Hudson Talbott.

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
