    Genevieve Foster is well known for her distinctive approach to teaching history. Firmly believing that history is drama, Miss Foster presents an engaging narrative of William Penn's life as well as those of his contemporaries throughout the world. Part one begins in 1660 and introduces us to William Penn, how he became a Quaker, his quest for religious freedom and how he received Pennsylvania. We then learn of his contemporaries including: the journeys of three French explorers: Marquette, Joliet and LaSalle; Louis XIV, the King of France, who ruled for seventy two years; mogul emperors of India and the Taj Mahal; the great age of Science (Sir Isaac Newton and Edward Halley); K'ang-Hse the great Manchu ruler of China and Peter the Great of Russia. We also revisit William Penn and learn of the many disasters that he experienced and how he came to return to England for his final days. Black and white illustrations, SC, 192 pgs. ~ Deanne

    You probably know about the famous men of astronomy from your science and history books, but do you know the truth about them and all of the others who paved the way for modern-day astronomy? This book covers from 1500 to 1700 and the strides that were made, beginning to end, and the people who made them – not just the ones you have heard of. People of that period were on a quest to discover and prove facts about astronomy and the universe: math, logic and technology being key to accurate discoveries. This 440-page, softcover book will take you chronologically through the astronomical renaissance and show (with some pictures and illustrations) how thinking changed from one theory to another as astronomers were proven to be right or wrong. You will read how famous men fit into the sequence with many others who were on the same path. ~ Donna

    If you have a comic book reader, the Adventure Bible Handbook might be a great way to interest them in reading stories from the Bible. Travel with the children of an archeologist throughout the Holy Land as they go in search of their missing father. In their quest to find Dad, they travel back in time with unusual tour guides who use RSP (really smart phones) devices to reach their destinations. They travel by hang glider, camel, kayak, and more, learning first-hand about places and events along the way. As unusual as this approach might seem, the Adventure Bible Handbook takes children on a chronological tour of major events. After meeting all the characters of the story, begin at the Garden of Eden, then go to the flood and see how large the ark really was; visit the Tower of Babel, meet Abraham and his family, then travel with Joseph to Egypt before moving on through other Bible events. For each stop in the story, you will not only read about the group of travelers, there will be photos of the area, items found there, explanation of unusual terms, and a Bible summary of that particular event. There may also be a scripture quotation (NIrV unless otherwise noted) or reference, so you can read more on the subject. The good news is that the children find their father, but they learn so much as they are searching.

    Some great resources are also found in this handbook. In the front of this 240-page hardcover book is a list of the pages on which you can find references to the books of the Bible (chronologically) and a list of the stories that are covered in the Adventure Bible Handbook. The back of the book includes a reading guide to the Bible, the Apostles' Creed, scripture index that tells you the page of the handbook on which you can find a particular scripture, a subject index, and a guide to the images (photos) used in the handbook. Your child can also access games and activities to accompany their Adventure Bible Handbook at www.AdventureBible.com.

    Use the Adventure Bible Handbook to get your child interested in God's Word and to introduce them to the adventure and excitement of the events that are foundational to the Christian faith. ~ Donna

    Simply illustrated and simple to play, this game reinforces the basics of addition. Each player rolls a pair of dice and based on the number they roll can "slam the door" on any combination of numbers from 1-9 that add up to the number they have rolled. The player continues until no more numbers can be covered based on the die roll, then play passes on. The numbers that remain uncovered are added to get the score of the player, who then moves the corresponding number along the game board. The winner is the person with the lowest score and reaches the end of the board last. Although only four pawns are included, more players are possible if you add a few game pieces.

    When young Galwyn, a mistreated apprentice on his uncle's ship, meets the Briton Lord Artos, he is filled with admiration for this man who will someday become King Arthur. Thanks to Galwyn's knack for languages and knowledge of horses, he is invited to join the warriors on their quest to purchase warhorses and transport them back to Britain. When the voyage ends, Galwyn has succeeded in earning Artos' favor – and a job on his estate continuing to care for the horses. At home, Artos attempts to unify the Britons against the Saxons while Galwyn and the other horse hands breed, train, and care for the growing herd. Even in the safety of Artos' estate, threats to the horses lurk in the form of horse thieves, bandits, and lameness caused by the moisture from the soggy terrain. Artos' strategy to drive out the Saxons depends on these horses; if they lose the horses, Galwyn will have not only disappointed Artos, but will have failed his country as well! Horse-lovers are sure to especially enjoy this Arthurian adventure! 218 pgs, pb. By Anne McCaffrey. - Jess

    King Solomon's Mines is probably the most popular book written by Henry Rider Haggard, but I think this one is more adventurous, action-packed, and fast-paced. It's about four Englishmen (a doctor who is searching for his son who was kidnapped years before, an elderly professor who loves ancient artifacts, an engineer/captain escaping a failed romance and looking for treasure, and a rascally soldier-type figure who's helpful in a pinch) who journey across the vast African wilderness in the late 1800's. They're attempting to help a young princess who claims to be a descendant of the Queen of Sheba by bringing enough dynamite to destroy the idol that keeps her people from prospering. Though they each have their own reasons for embarking on the dangerous quest, treasure, glory, and success may not be worth the dangers they end up facing. With lots of adventure and a great early Egyptian/African setting, this story will be enjoyed by young and old. 298 pgs, pb. ~Rachel

    If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)

    Throughout history, when people have united in a hunger and passion to know more of God and have gathered together in fervent prayer seeking His face, God has responded in powerful, supernatural and miraculous ways. Often, when these encounters continue over several days, weeks, months, or even years, the time of spiritual awakening and renewal is referred to as a revival.

    In this 382-page book, author Wesley Duewel has compiled accounts of some of the most powerful times of revival, beginning in the Old Testament all the way up to the late twentieth century. Let Revival Fire inspire you and encourage you in your own quest to know the Lord more deeply, as you read fascinating stories of the powerful workings of the Holy Spirit around the world. ~ Rachel P.

    More structured than a nature journal, this "outdoor workbook" is a great tool for families and students who prefer some guided instruction and inspiration as they observe, record, and learn from nature throughout the year. It features a varied, interactive format that kids won't soon get bored with, great forms for observation you can print from the publisher's website, and lots of terrific activity suggestions. The book is divided into three parts: "How to Be a Naturalist," "Learning the Sky," and "Exploring Nature." The first part introduces students to the skills and tools of the naturalist, provides suggestions and forms for setting up a nature journal, offers ideas for observation and appreciation (listing species that live in your neighborhood, making a "nature arrangement" or using observations to write a nature poem), and even includes quick drawing lessons that all culminate in an "field expedition." Because weather plays such a large role in nature, it gets its own chapter, and students are encouraged to draw the sky over different days and times, "read" clouds, draw a weather map, learn why we have seasons, play with shadows, keep a moon journal, discover nocturnal animals, learn three constellations and write a sky poem. The majority of "Exploring Nature" is organized by month (January-December) and provides specific activities and mini-lessons on seasonal nature topics. In March students will learn about the spring equinox, check for life in small pools of water and streams, turn over logs and rocks, draw birds, observe and draw budding twigs, and much more. In August, the focus is on water (the book assumes a family vacation here!) and students learn about the water cycle, find out more about a local stream or river, experiment with water, learn about water creatures, find sources of water in nature, keep a nature journal on vacation, and sleep under the stars. Several forms are provided for all months, including "Nature Notes" and "Nature Quest" forms, and a blank page for a "Picture of the Month." You can print more of these online for ongoing observation projects. Quite a few helpful resources for parents can be found in the appendix, such as safety information, suggestions on how to use nature journals in teaching and how to use the book to meet state curriculum standards, a bibliography (including suggested field guides and books for kids), recommended websites and a list of nature organizations. If you're new to nature studies and looking for some time-saving forms and activity suggestions, this is a resource to consider – and its reasonable enough you may want to get each child their own copy. – Jess

    Daughter, sister, wife, mother. These roles defined the life of Mercy Otis Warren in Boston in the 1770s. But she had a secret life. She was a writer. Uncharacteristically well-educated for women of her day and believing in the pursuit of freedom that was all around her, she wrote. Poems and plays, all with a patriotic message and all without her name attached. But there were a few who knew including her husband (James Warren) and his good friends (John and Abigail Adams). Her most ambitious undertaking, a history of the American Revolution, was started during the war and was completed over thirty years. Its three volumes told not only the story of the quest for freedom from British tyranny but included “biographical, political, and moral observations.” This beautifully illustrated children’s book captures Mercy’s story along with a glimpse of the nation being born around her. 10.25”x 10.25”, 36 pgs, hc (with dust cover). ~ Janice

    “Captain’s Log, Stardate 306391.6. Q has abducted five captains from Starfleet and has transported us to a mysterious alternate dimension to play a game of wits and battle. We are all to try and prove who the best captain is by fulfilling three of his arbitrary goals— whoever does so first will receive the somewhat trivial title as ‘Q’s favorite captain.’ It is unclear what Q has in store for us, but one thing is sure: it most certainly won’t be easy.”

    Play as Captains Kirk, Picard, Archer, Sisko, or Janeway in this incredibly unique take on the classic game of Risk. There are three game modes. Easy is essentially normal Risk for individuals who haven’t played before. 2-Player is a customized variant of Advanced for fewer players. Advanced is for veterans and is the heart of Star Trek Risk - features include the ability to choose crew members, each with special abilities; command tokens used to take actions, fulfilling three arbitrary goals given by the erratic space-jester Q to win the game; and preparing for his unpredictable events. These goals may entail taking over certain sectors of space, destroying alien species, or attacking opponents. Thrown into the mix are the aforementioned events: these shake things up by helping or hindering players (such as increasing a player’s attack power or limiting the number of moves they can make), or such randomness as spreading deadly Tribbles throughout the galaxy!

    All components included are very high-quality, with 225 custom plastic starships and shuttles, a beautifully-illustrated Star Trek playing board, along with captain, crew member, and planet cards illustrated in a similar style to the TV shows. 14 Q’s Quest and 30 Q-Vent cards keep gameplay interesting and change objectives up every time, allowing for plenty of re-playability! For 2-5 players.

    Written during a time of strong patriotism in late sixteenth century England, this play by Shakespeare was quite popular at the time because of its portrayal of King Henry V as the "greatest of English Kings." It depicts Henry as a focused ruler who has transformed from an unruly adolescent into a fierce and dedicated leader whom ultimately is successful in his quest to unite the kingdoms of England and France.
