    "We are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves, and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming: but speaking the truth in love." (Eph. 4:14). This powerful study from the Word of God guides the reader in developing an appropriate and accurate world view, and equips him to answer such vital questions as:

    Is there a God? If so, what is He like?

    What is the nature of the universe and its

    origin?

    What is the essential nature of man?

    What is the basis of ethics and morality?

    What is the cause of evil and suffering?

    What happens to man at death?

    What is the meaning of history?

    Author David Quine (Let Us Highly Resolve) challenges Christians to thoroughly examine the Scriptures for the answers to these questions, and to use the Biblical world view as the standard for making personal decisions and evaluating the thoughts and ideas of others. ~ Rachel

    Written in a similar style to the other Don't Know Much About books, this journey through the 50 states presents several questions and answers about each state as it is covered. Each page features one state (except for Texas, which of course needs two), with a small outline map of the state and other basic facts about the state, including the state bird and flower near the top of the page. Then several questions about the state are posed, some about more basic information about the state, and some involving more trivia-like information, such as "How many trees does it take to make a gallon of maple syrup?" for Vermont,"What is a keystone, anyway?" for Pennsylvania, or "Why were Nebraska's first settlers called 'sodbusters'?" for Nebraska. Other small interesting facts and state jokes are included as well. Also, a complete map of the U.S. is featured inside the front and back covers. Not a comprehensive look at each state, but an entertaining and informative read.

    The Ordinary Parent’s Guide by Jessie Wise shares the phonics teaching methodology first utilized with her own children. While Part 1 starts right off with phonics lessons, Part 2 includes information to prepare and encourage a young child to be a reader, manage the reading session, and provide a complete index to the lessons with questions and answers. Phonics instruction includes: short-vowel sounds; consonant sounds; short-vowel words; two-consonant blends; consonant digraphs; three-consonant beginning blends; long-vowel sounds; silent-e words; long-vowel sound spellings; other vowel sound spellings; other spellings for short-vowel sounds; silent letters; r-changed vowels; two-syllable words; other letter patterns and silent letters; possessive words and contractions; other spellings for the long-e sound; plural and hyphenated words; three-syllable words; endings, suffixes, and prefixes; more letter patterns; and a final section on homonyms, homophones, and homographs. Occasionally, additional supplies like a magnetic alphabet board are needed for optional activities, but usually blank index or the Flashcards are the only supplies needed.

    This primer is intended for young children to learn the Christian faith in general and the Reformed faith in particular by using simple questions and answers. The book content is drawn from the Catechism for Young Children, originally published in 1840 by Joseph P. Engels with some vocabulary and grammar changes to make it more accessible. Includes 150 Question and Answer numbers with 1-46 intended for ages 4-5 and 1-150 for grades 1-6. A few coloring pages are included throughout the book. ~ Gina

    Finally, a large print Bible for young readers! One of the best pieces of advice I received in my early days of homeschooling was to have a large print Bible for my young children. The point was made that young children may focus better on their reading skills without having to strain to read the small text, making Bible reading less intimidating and more enjoyable. Within the pages of this Bible, you will find a "Getting to know Jesus" question and answer section, introductions and outline of contents for each book of the Bible, 14 full color illustrations, eight Bible reading helps, eight full color maps, a dictionary, double column text and a list of one hundred fifty Bible stories. The NIrV is based upon the NIV and contains shorter sentences, simplified text and consistent use of names (eg: Sea of Galilee is used throughout NT, rather than the interchangeable names Sea of Gennesaret and Sea of Tiberias). Here is a sample from the NIrV, "God has breathed life into all Scripture. It is useful for teaching us what is true. It is useful for correcting our mistakes. It is useful for making our lives whole again. It is useful for training us to do what is right." 2 Timothy 3:16. 8 1/2"x 5 ½" 2042 pgs, hc. ~ Deanne

    A systematic theology for families. Beautifully illustrated, this Bible-saturated book introduces children to the reformed doctrine in a clear, understandable way. Divided into 11 sections, The Ology of God, of People, of Sin, of the Promise and the Law, of Christ, of the Holy Spirit, of Adoption, of Change, of the Church, of the End Times, and The Ology of God’s Word engagingly teach 71 gospel centered truths. 257 pgs, hc.

      The 2-4 page short stories engage children and adults, teaching Biblical doctrine with illustrations, Scripture references and additional Scripture. The back of the book includes questions (and answers) that support the doctrinal reading. Questions are appropriate for elementary to middle school ages. Introductory information for teaching Biblical doctrine is included in the parent guide at the front of the book. Includes glossary of theological terms in child-friendly language. Tremendous resource for family devotions or children’s church. ~ Deanne

    Catherine Levison authored these two books to help parents understand and apply the methods of Charlotte Mason in their homeschools. In her first book, Catherine gives a brief overview of Charlotte Mason and her methods. Then, subject by subject, she reveals how the method is applied in each area of learning. The final chapter deals with "The Formation of Habit". In it, she discusses the necessity of instilling proper learning habits in your children.

    After laying this groundwork, Catherine tackles more specific applications of the method in More Charlotte Mason Education. Especially helpful is the "Questions and Answers" chapter in which she addresses some commonly asked questions and addresses potential trouble spots. Other topics covered in the book are the application of short lessons, an explanation of "Liberal Arts", keeping a "Century Book", choosing curriculum, scheduling, teaching high school, and selecting appropriate books. Recommended books and resources are found at the end. Throughout the books, many references are made to the Original Homeschooling Series of six books. If you are serious about pursuing the Charlotte Mason method in your homeschool, you will probably find it a wise investment to continue your research by reading through the Original series.

    Using a question and answer format, this beginning history book capitalizes on a child's natural curiosity. It covers many different aspects of life - architecture, rulers, location, everyday life, fashion, food, transportation, recreation, religion, literacy, arts, and more. Although heavily illustrated, pages have a good amount of text, making this book interesting for a wide grade-range.

    Too often Christians are asked difficult questions concerning God and their beliefs and they don't know how to answer – If there is a God, why didn't he stop that from happening? Doesn't science prove evolution, not creation? Sometimes coming up with logical, thought out responses comes well after the conversation. This book is full of questions that have been asked of Ray Comfort along with Biblical responses that have been logically thought through. The book is written in an easy to read-and-reference question/answer format in the areas of Humanity: Rights & Suffering, Biblical and Theological issues, Scientific thought and evolution, Beliefs & Worldviews, and God and Atheism.

    Ray is an author, television personality, and operater of his blog, Atheist Central. The questions and answers found in this book are real, and are probably some you may have encountered. The answers are also genuine as Ray Comfort responds to atheists daily – sharing Biblical truths and pointing out flaws in their thinking. Spend some time getting familiar with Ray's responses and Biblical support to help you be prepared the next time you are faced with one of these tough questions – be ready to defend God! - Donna

    This little book (4.5" x 5.5") packs a lot of information. In a question-and-answer format, all the main ideas and the major persons involved in the Reformation are covered. Cartoons illustrate both the concepts and people. The major figures of the Reformation typically have both a realistic drawing and perhaps a more cartoon-y representation. A short description of their life and contribution is part of the question and answer portion. Pre-reformation church history is provided in about three pages to set the stage. Coverage includes: John Wycliffe, John Huss, Johann Gutenberg, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, William Farel, John Calvin, Heidelberg Catechism, Huguenots, Reformation in England (Westminster Assembly), John Knox, and William, Prince of Orange. 31 pgs, pb ~ Janice

    "A Conversational Handbook for the Thoroughly Befuddled." Yup, that's what it's like, alright. Just like a friend to help you through those "hard times" in math. This book kindly takes you by the hand and incrementally, step-by-step and question by question, teaches you the whys and hows of algebra. The book is even formatted to appeal to algebraically turned-off students, sympathetic to their predicament, but ready to "deal with it". The self-teaching, self-paced text has received accolades from students, teachers and publications ranging from Home Education Magazine to The Washington Times. Every page, or bite-sized "mini-lesson" is presented in question and answer format. There are five "types" of pages (designated by muted graphic): Mind Munchies (introduce/explain concepts), Bare Bones (information to memorize cold), Step by Step (how to do it), Pitfall (common mistakes/misunderstandings to avoid), and Target Practice (practice problems) plus QuikCheck problems (boxes on these pages with just a few problems to make sure students grasp the concept taught on the page). These are gathered into 12 content sections: Properties, Sets of Numbers, Positive & Negative Numbers, Order of Operations & Like Terms, Absolute Value, Exponents, Radicals, Factoring, Cancelling, Equations, the Coordinate Plane, and Word Problems. The new 2nd Edition of this book also includes a final chapter on Advanced Algebraic Word Problems (additional questions and solutions for this chapter are not found in the 1st edition workbook, but links are provided to find this material online). Altogether they constitute a complete Algebra I course. You can use this book as an Algebra I text (especially good for math- or algebra-phobic students) or as a comprehensive reference for students who are using another algebra program, but have difficulty understanding certain concepts.

    DK offers another in the line of First Encyclopedias to encourage young learners. Divided by the geologic time periods, this book presents dinosaurs in chronological order – Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. The book is rounded out with sections on other forms of life, fossils, and the end of the dinosaurs. Every page is filled with illustrations and bite-sized pieces of information. At the bottom of each two-page spread, there is a question and answer about one of the creatures found on those pages. Each section of pages has color-coding at the bottom, and special sections throughout the book encourage readers to look more closely at the pages – “picture detective” encourages you to find specific things on the page and “weird or what” gives some type of interesting fact. The back of the book includes activities and a glossary. Another great dinosaur resource from DK! 136 pgs, hc. ~ Donna

      This 2015 edition Bible is designed for children who are ready for a complete English Standard Version Bible but still would like illustrations (over 300 of various sizes interspersed throughout). This Bible uses 90 of the illustrations from The Big Picture Story Bible (#059579), but the cartoon style illustrations are not too childish for your older reader. Uses a double-column layout with page numbers and book identification in the top margin. I personally felt the 9 pt. type size was a bit small for the younger reader in this target age group. Whether you agree will depend on your child. A child-friendly catechism of 45 questions and answers with Biblical references is located in the back. Includes a presentation page, table of contents and an attached blue ribbon to mark your place. 5.375” x 8.375”, 1361 pp, hc. ~ Ruth

    Although it has been a number of years since I faced the terrible twos, I vividly remember the tears and the tantrums! In all honesty, not all those tears and tantrums came from my precocious two year olds - some were mine! Friends tried their best to give advice, but much of it was based on modern, child-centered philosophies. Then one day, a friend introduced me to the writings of John Rosemond, and our home life was dramatically improved.

    Offering excellent, practical advice for parents of nearly two year old through three year olds, this valuable book guides parents through healthy development, toilet training, establishing good bedtime habits, effective creative discipline, and controlling biting and other aggressive behaviors. One of his best tips, in my opinion is: Prevent your home from becoming child-centered and prioritize your marriage (and he shows you how!) As the mom to two adult-children, I can attest to the significance of this simple, yet profound counsel. Each chapter offers an extensive question and answer section, covering a wide range of situations parents of toddlers face. Indexed for quick reference for impending situations. 230 pgs, sc. ~Deanne

    Become a better writer in a month? It's possible if you spend 20 minutes a day (5x a week) with this book. Students can use this by themselves or you could use it in a class setting. Follow the 19 lessons in order as each new skill builds on the last. Writing is a process after all. At the beginning are tips for success on essays and exams, like avoiding clichés and hyperbole. A pre-test helps determine what you already know. Lessons take you from the planning and organizing stages, how to provide support for your idea, to revising and editing your final document. There is a post-test and some sample essay exam questions and answers. This can probably be used for younger writers if you pread these lessons out, maybe two a week, so they can get more practice at each step and experience writing a good essay. This book is simple to follow and encourages mastery at each phase. ~ Sara
