    This non-consumable publication contains a collection of 52 colorful and captivating illustrated maps from around the world. Each highly illustrated map includes not only basic geographical features and political borders, but also places of interest, references to notable personalities and peoples, pictures of native animals and plants, and cultural details from each region. This quality map collection is also utilized by Beautiful Feet Books as a standard part of their Around the World with Picture Books, Vol. 1 curriculum. This product will impart many useful facts and observations about various world cultures, influential people and animal life around the globe. It is not designed, however, to take the place of a conventional map collection that features more common geographical details. Measures 11" x 14", 105 pgs, hc. ~ Mike

    Students watch as the instructor, Wes Olson, explains the definition of life and takes you through the days of Creation and the specimens created on those days. In order, you will learn about plants, water animals, flying creatures, land animals, and mankind, and wrap it all up with lessons about genetics. There are 4 DVDs for a total running time of 4 ½ hours. The author describes this course as a “super-condensed, fun-filled, fascinating overview of the world of biology.” If you grasp the basics taught in this program, you’ll have a solid understanding of biology. The 4th disc contains the PDF files. High school credits are based on hours spent on a course of study, and 120-180 hours constitutes one credit. This course totals 135 hours if you follow the accreditation schedule. You could add dissection labs or microscope labs for more content. Note that the activities in this course are simple labs like identifying plants and animals or watching a fish, so if you live in a state which requires lab sciences for high school credit you will need to make some additions.

    What could be a more appropriate activity to accompany your study of Ancient Egypt than making your own papyrus? This kit includes instructions and enough strips of Egyptian papyrus stem to create one sheet of papyrus. The process takes several days, and a lot of soaking, but when you're done, you can use your sheet of authentic papyrus for your own unique Egyptian work of art, or a scroll! Please note that this kit does have a distinctive salty, dried-plant "aroma" which may be more offensive to some noses than others. ~ Jess

    Perhaps this text was part of my elementary education. The timing fits – and it would explain why the events lovingly memorialized in this publication are still firmly planted in my memory. First published in 1955 and now republished by Beautiful Feet, utilizing the historical accuracy and storytelling ability of Earl Schenck Miers and the amazing illustrations of James Daugherty (full-color, inked drawings), this book takes the reader through tales of adventure, heroism, and patriotism. From Leif's Viking boat explorations of the northeastern coastline to the atom bomb's close to the second World War, you will read about everything in between – explorers, founders, soldiers, adventurers, settlers, inventors, statesmen, educators, and many more – in the fifty stories that make up this 315 pg, paperback book. A worthy addition to your home library or ideal for any literature-based history course or unit study, the author himself sums up its scope: "…everywhere signs of the greatness of God. It is indeed the one truth in which we all believe. It is indeed our richest heritage." ~ Janice

    Some of the best stories are the ones that come from real people in history. One such story starts with a boy who was raised a Quaker in the Pennsylvania region before the founding of the United States. Benjamin West enjoyed painting so much he did what most would never think of doing: He made paint from clay, plants, and dirt, and fashioned paintbrushes from the tail of his cat, Grimalkin! Follow the great American writer Marguerite Henry as she traces the early years of this young man and his cat in this exciting tale. 147 pgs, pb. John

    Join Mama, Papa, the kids and Professor Actual Factual Bear for an easy introduction to science and nature. The book looks and reads like a large-format Berenstain Bears book, complete with rhyming verse. Three topics are covered. The Almanac celebrates the holidays and seasons through the year in Bear Country. On our Nature walk, we learn about learn about plants, animals, and insects, land forms and weather, fish and reptiles. The Science Fair helps us understand simple machines, matter and energy. The number of topics touched on would make it a great introduction to science for a young child, or a framework on which to discuss topics in more detail. For the nostalgic, this is a reprint of the book originally published in 1977. 190 pgs, sc. - Laura

    Just to confuse the people in our warehouse, we’ve decided to add another Biology Coloring Workbook to our catalog.  Actually, we couldn’t decide between the two. This one is from The Princeton Review and covers a lot of the same material as the HarperCollins edition. They both contain textual information on one page and a coloring page on the other. They both help students to affix the concepts of biology in mind, through coloring as they learn. The other one suggests specific colors for structures.  This one makes less particular demands, often just asking you to use a “light color,” “dark color,” or “bold color,” giving the artist in you more flexibility.  On the pro side, I have found that the presentation of topics in this book corresponds much more closely to the presentation of topics in our biology books.  Basic chapters are: Introduction to Biology, Biology of the Cell, Principles of Genetics, DNA and Gene Expression, Principles of Evolution, The Origin of Life and Simple Life Forms, Biology of Plants, Biology of Animals, Human Biology, Reproduction and Development, and Principles of Ecology.  Colored pencils or felt-tip pens are recommended.  156 plates.  Contains evolutionary content.

    Here's a place for kids to record all of their nature "finds," from observations to musings to artwork (photos or drawings). We like this journal because it's fairly free-form, not requiring a child to fill in a multitude of information, but allowing him to take the lead in what he wants to record. Our only qualm - it's not larger!

    But at least it won't be too bulky to tote! Book is half-sized (like folded standard pages), and contains log pages, photo/artwork pages, a quick log (to keep a running record of entries), log tips, and ideas for related nature activities. Sidebars contain interesting activities that may stimulate observation of particular plants or animals - just in case your woodsman needs a little prompting. pb, spiral-bound.

    What study of the states would be complete without a little coloring? Well, it's not really an essential, but it can reinforce the learning. Attractive blackline coloring pages are brimming with information about each of the 50 states, educating as they are colored. Which state is the Sunflower State? The Land of Opportunity? Which state's motto is "Ever Upward"? Informative captions provide each state's nickname, motto, flower, bird, tree, capital, principal rivers and mountains, notable attractions, and other special information.

    Accurate outline drawings of each state are prominent, with a small inset map of the United States showing its location (by shading). Some details, like mountains, rivers, and lakes, appear on the state. The capital's location is starred, but no printed names appear - so you can have your children do a little research and mapwork for extra benefit. This also makes the book usable as a reproducible map source. Surrounding the state are other blackline figures of the state bird, flower, related plant and animal life, and other significant features (New York, for example, includes the Statue of Liberty). Now your students can color their way to U.S. geographic literacy!

    Early in our nation's history, the primary reason for education was to allow each person to read the Bible for himself. In the same spirit comes this complete first grade curriculum. While it incorporates history, science, art, and math, the heart of the program is phonics-based reading instruction with Biblical emphasis. This program was revised in 2013 and features a new title, changes to the teacher's manual and new package resources.

    Phonics instruction begins with a quick review of letter names and sounds using full-color alphabet flash cards, then follows with in-depth, step-by-step teaching of all phonics constructs. Phonics lesson plans teach new skills while reviewing previously-learned skills. By Lesson 31, students are able to read Bible stories in a special beginning Bible Reader. The reader uses a thematic approach to teach Bible history in chronological order from Genesis to Revelation. Students are expected to retell the Bible story, and then create a keepsake Bible notebook in which they summarize and illustrate Bible stories. (Linda used a similar approach years ago to teach Bible to our older children, and they enjoyed it very much.) Weekly memory verses selected from Proverbs help to develop character and handwriting at the same time. Hands-on projects are designed to help children understand the world of the Bible. These include creating timelines using the included figures, making Bible times costumes, and celebrating a Sabbath meal. Science focuses on the wonders of God's creation, and uses three Usborne books (Things Outdoors, Science with Water, and Science with Plants), which are included with the curriculum. Math incorporates hands-on activities, math manipulatives and a math workbook (Complete Book of Math Gr. 1-2). If you prefer a more serious approach to math (as we do), you can add another math program.

    The Deluxe Package includes the Teacher's Manual; student book; student worksheets; a Bible Notebook; Bible Reader; Complete Book of Math Gr. 1-2; My Big Book of 5-Minute Devotions; Unifix Cubes; a small geared clock; addition and subtraction flashcards; wood pattern blocks; Pattern Animals; Things Outdoors; Science with Water; Science with Plants; Honey for a Child's Heart; Peter and the Wolf CD; Enjoying Art Together; and Drawing with Children. ~ Bob
