    What could be more fascinating and comforting than watching iridescent little jellyfish float and swim around in your little lamp? Okay, so maybe not as cool as real jellyfish, but hey, there is no clean-up or feeding required! This cylindrical lamp measures 3L x 3W x 8.5H with a soft rainbow of light that causes the jellyfish to change color as they float in different position and areas of the lamp. The pump makes a soothing humming sound and keeps the little jellyfish in constant motion as they float to the top and descend over and over again. This would make an awesome nightlight! ~ Megan

    Puberty can often be an awkward, or even difficult time for girls. With so many changes happening all at once, it can be downright overwhelming. This book helps girls cope with their changing bodies by helping them to understand what to expect, and by offering practical tips for handling the challenges of physical development with grace and poise.

    The ten chapters in this 192-page book address topics such as changing body shapes, breast development, hair care basics, nail care tips for hands and feet, skin care issues like acne, surviving menstruation, getting enough sleep, getting and staying physically fit, healthy eating, and dealing with new experiences such as a first crush or peer pressure.

    I really liked how interactive this book is. Throughout the book there are designated areas for girls to jot quick thoughts about what they are reading and how it relates to them. Also, there are frequent personal inventory type quizzes to help girls determine if they're on the right track, or to identify areas needing improvement. Other fun features include "advice column" type question and answer sections, a simple, daily workout routine, and a number of recipes for homemade skin care and beauty products such as Fresh Squeezed Lemon Hair Rinse, Rainbow Twirl Lip Gloss, and Candy Apple Shower Gel.

    I also appreciated how this book emphasizes scripture and godly principles, and helps girls to respond to their changing bodies and the pressures of adolescence in a way that is honoring to God. By applying the wisdom in this book, girls can grow spiritually as they grow physically.

    While the text of the book speaks directly to the teen girl (and is thus sensitive to her need for added privacy during these years of development,) Christian Girl's Guide does an excellent job of providing teen-initiated discussion with Mom, and never undermines parental authority. Read the book first, if you like, and then give it to your daughter to work through on her own, trusting that she will come to you with questions and concerns about the changes that lie ahead. This encouraging book is perfect for any girl in the process of growing up and growing into a godly woman. ~ Rachel P.

      Let the Basher Science characters help you learn about weather. This book teaches basic weather vocabulary and weather events with a variety of weather-related illustrated characters that will humorously teach you the concepts. Learn about the World of Weather, Blue-Sky Dreamers, Wet ’n Wild, and Extreme Weather. Each chapter begins with a one-page introduction; then you meet each character one at a time. There are two pages devoted to each concept and character. If you can’t remember definitions for some of the new words, there is a glossary at the back, and a poster is included as a visual reminder of your new Basher weather friends. 64 pgs. ~ Donna

    Have you been longing for a high school science course written like the Life of Fred math curriculum? Story format? Tongue in cheek humor? Cute little sidebar comments and rabbit trails that keep you reading? Dr. Stanley Schmidt has done it – Life of Fred Chemistry! Get your high school credit for chemistry in a very non-traditional way. The goal of Dr. Schmidt’s chemistry course is to teach you the “really basic stuff – such as the chemical symbol for carbon is C and that organic compounds are those that contain carbon” because to be a “well-educated adult, you probably don’t need to learn what a racemic mixture means.”

    The story begins at the chem lab down the hall from Fred’s math class when Joe didn’t follow proper lab safety and gets hurt (I don’t want to give away too much of the story). Through this scenario, students will learn about lab safety and the story proceeds from there as students learn about the size of gold atoms; weighing an atom; mass vs. weight; standard temperature; mole; scientific method and much more as the story unfolds.

    There are 36 short chapters and each concludes with Your Turn to Play. This is a set of questions (including math problems) to make sure you understand each chapter’s concepts. Complete solutions are found on the reverse side of the Your Turn to Play page. Note: there are no tests or labs to accompany this course. If you really want to do this course but need it to be a lab science, you could add the MicroChem Experiment Lab Kit (#020028). This self-contained lab kit comes with the chemicals needed and complete instructions (since no labs come in the Life of Fred Chemistry text). If you feel confident in your lab abilities, you could add the Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments (#027801) or 150 Captivating Chemistry Experiments Using Household Substances (#005436). Either of these books would allow you to add labs using familiar substances rather than hard-to-access chemicals. Dr. Schmidt recommends the use of a scientific calculator with the keys sin, cos, log, and ln. These are inexpensive calculators and we have one in the Rainbow Resource inventory that meets his ‘key’ recommendation, #041918.

    Algebra is always a prerequisite to doing chemistry; this course is no exception. The math begins on page 1 of the text with simplifying algebra equations. The math isn’t heavy, but you need to know your algebraic functions. Dr. Schmidt says that you need enough beginning algebra to understand basic algebra concepts.

    Dr. Schmidt believes that if chemistry is taught right, it can be a lot of fun! Do this as your stand-alone chemistry (with lab supplementation if desired) or read it alongside your chemistry curriculum to add that humorous element and have fun! ~ Donna
