    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

    This book is an interesting twist on the Cinderella story we all know so well. Rhodopis is a Greek girl stolen by pirates and sold into slavery. She was treated poorly by the other servants because she looked different from them. They were jealous of her fair hair and green eyes. Rhodopis made friends with the animals instead. Sometimes when her chores were finished she would dance for her animal friends. When her master sees what a great dancer she is, he gives her a pair of golden slippers. One day while doing the washing in the river her slipper is stolen by a Falcon, who just happens to drop it in the lap of the Pharoah Amasis. When Amasis sees the beautiful slipper he takes it as a sign from the gods that he must find the owner of the slipper and make her his Queen. Written by Shirley Climo. Illustrated by Ruth Heller. 28 pgs, pb. - Stephanie A.

      Marionettes have always fascinated me. Here’s the next best thing! On the pages of this booklet are all the characters you’ll need to reenact the story of Esther. Queen Esther, King Xerxes I, Queen Vashti, Mordecai, and Haman are printed on sturdy card stock. You just need mini brads or fasteners (such as #036358) to fasten the legs and arms to the torso, etc. The character design is gorgeous! The true-to-period costumes and meticulous illustrations are actually based on paintings or relief sculptures. Kids also have a choice! They can choose to cut out either the pre-printed pieces or color and design their own with the included black and white cut-outs. You can then attach figures to craft sticks or create your own marionettes on string, etc. This set also includes detailed descriptions of each character. The publisher’s web site provides downloadable internet-linked scripts, and companion puzzles and activities as well. A brilliant way to reinforce your Bible lessons or celebrate Purim. 24 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

      Can you correctly arrange Snow White, the Evil Queen, and all seven dwarves? This adorable “game board” is shaped like the dwarves’ cottage and stands upright. Featuring four windows with shutters and a door, all that open, it comes with 48 puzzles to solve – 24 exterior puzzles (worked while looking at the outside of the cottage) and 24 interior puzzles (flip it around so you’re facing inside the cottage.) Using the included puzzle book, you place some figures in their designated spots behind/in front of windows and door, and then you must determine where the remaining figures belong within the constraints of that particular puzzle. But be careful! Some figures can’t be placed in a certain color room, while some figures must always be placed together. Clues are given through a series of simple pictures and clearly explained in the puzzle book. This charming set includes puzzle board, seven dwarves, Snow White figure, witch/Evil Queen figure, puzzle and solutions booklet, and a beautiful hardcover picture book. Cottage and figures are all bright and well-made plastic pieces. – Laura

      As a boy, Edward Hopper knew exactly what he wanted to be when he grew up: an artist. He painted everyday scenes, even when nobody bought his paintings. This story is one of following your dreams with resilience and determination. The author tells of the artist’s adventures in New York and Paris, and back to his home near the Hudson River. It is illustrated in the style of Hopper with simple, serene images. He marries another artist and together they paint city and country scenes. His work gained popularity and was shown in galleries and museums. Though it is biographical, I love how this book is written as a story. You really get a sense of the artist as a person. Add this to a study on American art, American history or a study on world artists. Hopper really shows America as it was in his lifetime (1882-1967.) Hc, 10” x 10” with jacket. ~Sara

      This very detailed book starts off by getting the reader to look around them and think about how far technology has brought us in how comfortably we live. Today, we take running water and electricity for granted. Buildings were adapted for safety and a need to house the population. Illustrations and a very well-written text walk you through various man-made structures. Several pages even fold out to show a larger illustration. Some notable buildings include the Pyramid of Djoser in Egypt, various temples of Greece, the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Notre Dame in Paris, the Forbidden City in Beijing and lots more. You don’t just read about the architecture, you learn about the individual artisans who worked together, who paid for the structures, and problems that arose during construction. There is so much historical information, you could add this to about any world history curriculum or even create an original unit study around this beautiful hardcover book! Author Patrick Dillon, illustrated by Stephen Biesty. Hc, 10” x 11.5”, 95pp. ~ Sara

    Teaching history hands-on is a sure fire way to create a love for history in our children. This great resource provides 21 activities and comprehensive information on one of the great explorers of our nation - admittedly a man with numerous character flaws that resulted in misadventures and moral failures. The introduction to this book says it best, "No matter what one may think of Columbus - hero, heel or both - the significance of what he did, however interpreted, is monumental. Christopher Columbus changed the world. For that, Columbus, given the title the Admiral of the Ocean Sea, deserves to be known and his legacy explored."

    Activities include: explaining nautical knots, making an ancient globe, creating a coat of arms, making an hour glass, growing shipboard mold, simulating a lunar eclipse and much more. Well illustrated with images, photos and diagrams. Time line included. 145 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    Learn about Shakespeare’s world in an accessible, kid-friendly way! In classic DK fashion, this book’s pages are a perfect blend of visual information: both pictures and text. Each spread covers a topic with one or two large color photographs, a paragraph or two, then the margins are filled in with smaller, relevant images and captions. This visual approach makes for a wonderful way to learn about Shakespeare’s world. Learn about his upbringing, the royalty of that time, daily life and culture of that era, how his plays were written and performed, the different types of plays he wrote (such as comedy and tragedy), his legacy, and so much more! I absolutely loved this type of book as a child because it takes a dry subject and gives the reader a detailed, historically accurate view. Complete with a timeline, reference of Shakespeare’s characters and a glossary. Perfect as a supplement to literature or history, or as a stand-alone book that is fun to read. 72 softcover pages. – Laura

    When I opened this book, I expected a scientific presentation on black holes. Why? Because the pages are packed with beautiful images from NASA taken by the Hubble Space Telescope! Instead, I was treated to a delightful tale about a bright 14 year boy who chooses to ignore his father's advice. He takes his spaceship too close to a black hole because he thinks he can beat it and not get sucked in. However, he learns that there are two important factors he neglected to consider. In the back, each of the space images is explained with a brief caption. If you have a space enthusiast at your house, or you want to add some gorgeous images to an astronomy study, this book would be a worthy addition to your home library. Board book, 9" x 12". ~ Sara

    Do you go for extra points or make sure another player can correctly identify your sketch? If you enjoy drawing games, you will appreciate the engaging game play in this one. Every player gets to both sketch and guess in every round. The roll of a die determines which item to sketch from your card. But hurry! As players complete their sketches they place them face down in the center and grab the remaining disk with the highest point value. The last player has more time to add detail, but his drawing is worth fewer points. Sketches are shuffled and randomly distributed. If a player can correctly identify his received image in one guess, both he and the artist receive the points shown on the artist's disk. The leading scorer after ten rounds wins. Well-conceived and portable, this addictive game is a great value. For 3 to 6 players.

    The "father of philosophy" is brought to life by renowned historian Paul Johnson in what is much more than a mere biography. We are finally able to form a whole image of the man behind the mind – from his acceptance of his unattractive physical appearance to his surprisingly happy marriage. Along with his life, we are introduced to Socrates' city, Athens, and shown his lasting impact on Western thinking as we are effortlessly guided back and forth between the fifth century B.C. and the present. Perhaps most importantly, Johnson seeks to separate Socrates' own words from those attributed to him by his student, Plato. 194 pages, paper back – Rachel

    Take a gamble on this creative card game! The goal is simple: build the best "hand" possible using the five cards you are dealt. There are 44 cards in the game, each of which includes a detailed caricature of that president along with his home state, college, number of children, height, and a fun fact. The goal is to put together a hand of the most presidents that have something in common. For example, three presidents from Virginia will beat out two presidents named Jackson and two presidents standing 5" 11" tall. Yet, five presidents who didn't attend college will beat both hands! Just reading the cards is a lot of fun too! Game playing cards are cleverly illustrated with lively images. Includes point-based "betting chips" if you want the full "poker" experience, but the game can easily be played without them. Your children are sure to learn more about our presidents through this engaging card game. I'll put my money on it! 2-5 players. ~ Deanne

    This 64-page book won't take long to read, but it will remind you about how much our free enterprise depends on our freedom to make choices, and that freedom comes from God. Since He has created us in His image and likeness, we are free to make choices but responsible to Him for the choices we make and the created resources we use. From this baseline, author Tom Rose hits the highlights of properly-constituted civil government, property, freedom of exchange, competition in the marketplace, consumer choice, and profit. Lots of historical and Biblical quotes are provided as a basis for the author's opinions, and he gives examples of how these ideas have played out in the real world. This book is a good reminder of the Christian philosophy of a free enterprise system. 64 pgs, sc.

    There is something magical about the character of Sherlock Holmes. The image of the tall, thin man with a cape, carrying a magnifying glass and wearing a deerstalker is recognized immediately. He is the international icon for the detective, the crime-solver and the righter of wrongs. Since their publication, the stories of Sherlock Holmes have never been out of print; they are available in almost every language, even some in Pitman's shorthand and Braille. The Best of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of twenty of the very best short stories from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Basing his selection around the list of the author's own twelve personal favorites, David Stuart Davies has added a further eight stories to Doyle's "Baker Street Dozen," creating a unique volume which distills the pure essence of the world's most famous detective. A Wordsworth Classic.

    Students of all ages will be extra motivated to practice Spanish phrases once they take a look at these flash cards! What sets these cards apart is the adorable claymation-like images of animals, objects, and children in modern settings. Each 4" x 6" card features a Spanish phrase (with an accompanying illustration) on one side, with the identical image translated into English on the other side. A variety of topics are covered including colors, animals, numbers, the parts of a house, and more. The centerpiece of the set is what I call the "dialogue" or "scene" cards. These cards feature people having short conversations, with their dialogue appearing in speech bubbles. (For example, one card shows a woman asking her student where his book is; the student answers "I don't know."). Pronunciations of the words and phrases found on the cards are available on Usborne's website. The set contains 50 cards total. ~ Lisa

    The knight in shining armor! It's hard to imagine a more masculine image. The knight embodied loyalty, courage, leadership, honesty, self-discipline, integrity, and perseverance. Author Robert Lewis wants to renew the vision that medieval fathers had for their sons. His desire stems from disappointment in his own upbringing from an "absentee" father, and he hopes that fathers today will not make the same mistake. Lewis outlines steps to bring our sons along the path to manhood just as the knights had a prescribed course of training. And just as ceremony marked the graduation of a young man from squire to knight, Lewis offers ideas for ceremonies to celebrate the passing of our sons into manhood. Consider these ideas as we prepare our sons to serve the King. 194 pgs, pb.

    Shakespeare can be a tough read, but when you can see the characters with all of their emotions and the actions, it starts to make a lot more sense for the reader. Including only the most relevant scenes, this 5-in-1 Shakespeare collection does an amazing job of visually demonstrating some of his most popular plays. The dialogue is in the original voice with a modern version as a footnote and sometimes in the graphic panel itself. I found myself completely ignoring the translation because the images were so dramatic and engaging! It doesn't look like a modern comic book. The colors are subdued and there are no super powers. The 5 plays include: Hamlet, Macbeth, Julius Caesar, Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream. 191pp, 8" x 11" pb. ~ Sara

      Grant and Lee are the most well-known generals from the Civil War, yet few know them beyond their roles on America’s battlefields. This biography / history delves deeper, giving accurate insight into their personalities, achievements, and opinions before, during, and after the war. The book begins with a look at both men’s the youth before alternating between them. In storybook fashion, both men are developed chapter-by-chapter, giving a clearer picture of each. Quotes, supplemented letters, and a fair smattering of pictures complete the image. Character is a core focus of the book; Lee, for example, is portrayed in a rather glowing manner: “If his manner was somewhat austere, his men found him a perfect Southern gentleman—kind, generous, and modest.” However, any failings and other small details (such as Grant’s difficulty with alcohol) paint a compelling picture of both. This is an excellent, unintimidating biography. 155 pgs, sc.
