    Writers often have a larger spoken vocabulary than they do written. They may know the first sound in a word, but are unsure how to spell it out. This quick reference tool is meant to help struggling spellers and writers and is suitable for a broad range of skill levels from grade 4 to adult. The first section has a letter per page in alphabetical order. Words are categorized by how they are used (noun, verb, adjective, etc.) The second section is a word list of commonly misspelled words. Section three is for students to write their own word list to have as reference. There is a reading tool for you, from See-n-Read, in the back of this guide. I like how this book can be personalized by the student. It seems very simple in format and easy for kids to use. 40 pgs, pb. ~ Sara

    If you need a handy, easy-to-use Bible reference, this could be what you're looking for. This isn't an in depth, verse-by-verse explanation of the Bible. This is a QuickSource! It begins with an explanation of how to read this book and use it as a reference. It then proceeds book by book, following the same format for each book. Each book begins with a Key Bible Text, a verse that gives a clue to the meaning of the book. It then gives a Key Term, which summarizes the book in one word. Next there is a One-Sentence Summary which shows how this particular book relates to God's story. The first section after the introductory material is entitled "God's Message in the Book." Here you'll read the purpose of the book, the Christian Worldview Elements as they pertain to twelve themes, teachings about God, teachings about humanity, and teachings about salvation. The second section is called "Christ in …" which explains how we can see Christ within that book. The 3rd section is titled "God's Story." This is a fuller explanation of the summary found at the beginning of each book on how the events in this book fit into God's bigger picture. The fourth section deals with the "Original Historical Setting." It is here that you'll get information about the author, date of writing, first audience and destination, and the occasion for the writing. The fifth and last section of each book is "Literary Features." Genre and literary style, theme and book features, and structure are discussed in this section. Scattered throughout the information are full-color diagrams, maps and photographs pertaining to the contents of that book. All of this information is packed into only about 6 pages per book of the Bible. This book was designed for those beginning their Bible journey, but it could be used by the more experienced as well. This is definitely an easy reference to use! Softcover, 405 pages. ~ Donna

    This is my favorite name-brand bilingual dictionary! While larger, more cumbersome versions exist, the pocket Larousse offers the best of quick reference in a portable format. Includes modern language of 150,000 words, expressions and translations. You can even look up a form of a verb and see the infinitive, an especially helpful feature for students. It includes both French/English and English/French with phonetic guidance. Beginners will usually look up an English word in the Eng/Fr side, while more advanced students will use the Fr/Eng more. As the Frenchy here in the office, I have this one on my desk. Copyright 2001, 969, pb. ~ Sara
