    Condensing the most exciting part of chess into a puzzle game, Solitaire Chess gives you 10 pieces (a king, queen, and two knights, rooks, pawns, and bishops) and 40 challenges. Your goal is to have only one piece left, but there are some rules – you can only move in accordance with traditional chess rules, and you have to capture a piece with every move. Fast-paced and requiring an ample amount of forethought and carefulness, this game would be excellent for chess aficionados or logic puzzle lovers alike. ~ Mark

    The Queen has selected her cadre of loyal ants (that’s you!) to build her a beautiful new tunnel for the colony. But beware: anteaters lurk above the surface, making it increasingly difficult to complete the tunnel! Play begins with a shuffled batch of square tiles, placed face-down for all players to use. Each turn, players draw a tile and add it to the 6x7 board, gradually creating a tunnel fit for the Queen. Most tiles contain different shapes of tunnels, but underground obstacles and the dreaded anteaters often throw a wrench into the works! The ultimate goal is to create a tunnel with 2 unblocked entrances to the surface and all 4 extra special “Ant Room” tiles. But if this becomes impossible to do at any time, all players lose! Overall, a solid game for kids to learn cooperation and a little bit of strategy with a science/nature twist. For 2-6 players.

    The Egyptian, Mesopotamian, Nubian and Hittite civilizations and cultures each have their own section in this early history unit study. It all starts with a parallel timeline of the four cultures, with approximate and actual dates noted, so you can see what was happening in each of these civilizations simultaneously. The time period addressed is from the first Egyptian pharaoh, about 5,000 years ago, to the defeat of Queen Cleopatra by Octavian (30 BC). An introduction gives you some background into the locations and basic history of the cultures. Each civilization contains units on architecture, clothing, writing, work, food and religion, accompanied by one or several activities. So children can make a model Egyptian boat as they learn about trade on the Nile River, make Sebetu Rolls as they learn about Mesopotamian dietary habits, make a shaduf as they learn about farming in Nubia, or write in cuneiform as they learn a little about Hittite law. All of the activities accurately reflect ancient methods and customs and can be completed with common (mostly household) materials. Anybody for a little Hittite Hummus on those crackers?

    This unabridged reproduction of the 1905 edition provides children with an extensive, yet engaging history of England from Roman times through the reign of Queen Victoria. There are over a hundred chapters, although each one is only several pages long. Chapters usually focus on a monarch or a specific event (usually a battle) under the reign of the monarch. Although this 654-pg to me looks intimidating at first glance, the writing is lively and descriptive with lots of dialogue. Lifelike black-and-white full-page illustrations are scattered throughout the book. By H.E. Marshall, pb. - Jess

    This riveting biography provides you with an inside look into the enchanting life of a powerful woman in European history, Eleanor of Aquitaine. Born in 1122, she was just fifteen when she inherited her father's vast lands in Aquitaine, France. In a quick political move, the King of France arranged for his son, Louis the VII to marry Eleanor, as a way to gain control of her duchy. Eleanor was a well-educated woman, politically savvy, and not content to be confined by the traditional gender roles of her time. By the time she was twenty-nine she grew tired of her marriage to Louis, and she sought after a divorce. Afterwards, she pursued her next groom, Henry the Duke of Normandy. Henry soon was named the rightful heir to the English throne, and he took his place there in 1154. The author also points out that Eleanor was not only one of the most powerful political figures of her day, but she also helped to shape the future for the arts and humanities, as it was one of her true passions. This insightful narrative is a must-read for any lover of French and English history. Pb, 183 pgs.

    When you think Shakespeare, you think plays. When you read Shakespeare, you read plays. When you memorize Shakespeare, you memorize plays. When you dream Shakespeare… well, actually, I hope you don't dream Shakespeare - but I do hope you have an interest in exploring the history of such an influential man. Author Aliki has done a marvelous job in this book for young people. Written as a five-act play itself, the first four acts give us the run-down of Shakespeare's life, from his birth and childhood to London, the queen, the theatre, the plays and poems, the Globe, and the other major points of his life. The fifth act is about a man named Sam Wanamaker and his dream to reconstruct the Globe theatre. It tells how they did this on the original site, using authentic materials and construction methods. The book also includes a list of Shakespeare's works, a chronology of his life, words and expressions he invented, and places to see when visiting Shakespearean sites. It is a colorful, well illustrated, 48-page soft cover book that will hold your interest right to the end. ~ Zach
