    As someone who was homeschooled, I fondly recall my mother turning anything and everything into a teaching moment, and an Easter egg hunt is no exception. I remember using a much earlier set of Resurrection Eggs to learn the Easter story in a very fun, practical, and hands-on way. Each of the 12 plastic eggs contains a small object that pertains to a part of the Easter story, such as some small silver coins, a cross made of dulled nails, or a figure of praying hands. Simply open the egg, look at the object, then read the relevant scripture and short devotional in the provided instruction book, written in both English and Spanish.

    The eggs can be used in two different ways. Either set aside some time to go through an egg every day leading up to the holiday, or have an indoor egg hunt with a lesson afterwards! Two sheets of stickers show the same objects, great for a craft project or lesson. Everything fits perfectly into a special plastic egg carton to be tucked away safely for next Easter. – Laura

    We often get requests for online products, and these two programs were specifically requested. Reading Eggs and Mathseeds combine printed materials with fun, interactive online lessons for complete curriculum in the areas of reading and math. Online lessons are available through a 12-month subscription (for one child); this gives you access to the different levels of the program. Use the printed readers and workbooks with the Reading Eggs online lessons for a complete reading program, and the workbooks with online Mathseeds lessons for a complete math program. Workbooks can be used alone if you just want practice (no lessons) with answer keys included at the back of each. Note that the workbooks are the same pages as those that can be printed with the online subscription.

    More About Mathseeds

    Mathseeds is an interactive online math program for the younger learners in your family. There are 200 lessons geared toward ages 3-9, and new content is added often. Every lesson introduces and models a concept and is then followed by activities, an e-book reinforcing the concept, and then a reward of a hatching e-pet. Children work through virtual maps of different ecosystems, and the e-pets are animals that might be found in that area. A multiple-choice quiz is given after every 5th lesson, which comes with its own rewards. There are 50 lessons per grade level K-3, but these could be used whenever your student is ready. The first 20 lessons at the K level are for students with no math skills, so they could be used younger. Lessons 21 50 begin to develop foundational math skills. The rest of the lessons build upon previously learned skills in the program, so youll want to do them in order. Printable activities provide written practice for the lessons taught online.

    The online subscription is a 12-month access code for use with one student. With access, you will receive lessons, printables (same as the workbook pages), tracking of student progress, and a downloadable app for your tablet. Children will love the interactivity of the online lessons and the surprises that hatch along the learning path. Print workbooks for Mathseeds are available on our site as a separate purchase if it's easier than printing the activities online.

    The Easter Story is not a one-day event, but something that began on Palm Sunday. This beautiful set of stacking wooden eggs and Hardcover Book can be used to tell that story in a way that will be remembered.

    The set contains seven wooden nesting eggs, each representing an event between Palm Sunday and the Resurrection. Begin with the largest egg, approximately 5.5” tall and 3.5” diameter, which has a palm leaf painted on both sides; this represents Palm Sunday. The next egg, nested neatly inside, is painted with a gold and white temple that represents God’s House of Prayer. Next, is an egg with a heart on both sides, this represents the greatest commandment, “Love the Lord with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself.” The next egg shows a beautiful jar pouring out to represent the woman who washed Jesus with expensive perfume at Simon’s home. The last supper is painted on the next egg, and the sixth egg has a colorful cross painted on both sides. The seventh and smallest egg is painted gray to represent the stone at the tomb. The egg halves fit snugly together; the more you play with them the easier they will open.

    The book included in the set is a 39-page, hardcover book that tells the story to go along with the egg. Simple, colorful illustrations are found on almost every page, rhyming lyrics tell the story of each egg, and a Bible verse (NIV) finishes out each section of the story. There are so many ways to use the Easter Story Egg and book – do one egg each day beginning with Palm Sunday and read only that portion of the story, let children unstack the eggs as the story is being read to them, or let children tell you the story using the eggs. Make this part of your family tradition as you celebrate the true meaning of Easter. ~ Donna

    Sam Beaver is a young boy who loves nature, and unlike most little boys, has a deep respect for it. Although he lives in Montana, Sam is camping in Canada. He discovers a pair of trumpet swans building a nest on a lake. He observes them carefully, and comes to visit after their eggs have hatched. Trumpet swans may be the most glorious breed of birds. Besides being marvelously beautiful, they also have the ability to trumpet joyously. Well, all of them except for Louis. When the father swan brings over his children to show off to Sam, all of them give him a polite beep, except for Louis, who can't beep or make any other sound and instead just tugs on Sam's shoelace. When fall comes, the family flies south to Montana. Here Louis decides that he must learn to read and write so he can better communicate. He finds Sam and begins attending school with him. Louis falls in love with a beautiful swan named Serena, but not even his education compensates for his inability to trumpet his love. Then his father finds him a real brass trumpet. Will Louis be able to use the musical instrument to win Serena's love? 272 pgs, pb. By E.B. White; illustrated by Fred Marcellino.

     The Student Textbook is available in a Christian Worldview version and a Secular version. Worth mentioning, content is marginally different (scripture references in the Christian Worldview version). Co-ops or classroom students could use the books concurrently with success.  Lessons are expected to take one week to complete, with readings from 10-25 pages, so some lessons may need additional time to complete. Textbook readings are accompanied by lab activities. Labs are designed to be homeschool friendly and use household or easily found items. A sampling of lab experiences includes: osmosis with eggs and vegetables, creating a cell model, determining pH, and making butter and yogurt. You will need internet access for the Taxonomy activity. The Textbook includes space for documenting the lab activities although students may wish to make a science notebook. The author is in the process of developing video dissection labs; contact us for availability. No microscope is required for this course.

    If you and your kids want to learn about birds, and I mean really learn about birds (more than the information provided by little books or field guides), then this is the book for you! Packed with full-color illustrations and photographs and detailed, yet easy-to-read information, bird lovers of all ages will learn something new. The book begins with an up-close-and-personal look at the bird. Learn the finer structures within feathers, types of feathers, bird anatomy and structure including bones and internal organs, types of bills, bird senses, and much more. The second chapter talks about the various places birds call home and which types prefer which environments and habitats. Bird communication, communities, nest preferences, eggs and food are all discussed. The third chapter is in a field guide layout – introducing thirty types of birds with an introduction, size comparison, habitat, bird call, and range across the U.S.A. given. The section ends with a compact chart of all the birds discussed and the essential information about each one. Then students will learn about birds that are endangered and bird migration. The fifth chapter entails how you can interact with birds and make your yard a bird haven. There are some ideas for building projects such as nesting boxes and arbors, and ideas for keeping a calendar of the birds you see and when you see them to learn their schedules. The sixth and final chapter shows the gold-medal winning birds in lots of different events such as fastest runners, highest fliers, deepest divers, best dressed and more with short explanations of which bird species came in first. A glossary, resource list, index, and a short bird-watching quiz are all included in the appendix. So read up and head outside to put your new knowledge to the test! ~ Megan

    Written by the sisters of the man who wrote the American Boy's Handy Book (Lina and Adelia Beard - two of the founders of Girl Scouting in America), this book is full of various activities and pastimes for girls. Originally published in 1887, the book does have some outdated or impractical ideas, but many are surprisingly fun and doable. Even the ones you can't do are fun to read about as you imagine the fun that Victorian American girls would have had. Like the Boy's book, the activities are divided into spring, summer, fall, and winter, so pastimes can be found that fit into certain times of year and holidays. The book opens with some great ideas for an April Fool's Day party that makes me wish I had discovered this book when I was younger. Maybe I'll give a few of the ideas a try around the office anyway! Then the book works through the year giving ideas for projects, devices, toys, gifts, dolls, recipes, decorations, perfumes, modeling, painting, and games. Clear and practical directions for how to make or play everything are provided, and the book is sure to encourage girls to get out and be active while remaining courteous and ladylike. Preserving flowers, using leaves and flowers for decorations, Easter egg activities, how to dry starfish, how to make a hammock, corn-husk dolls, making a fan, ornamental gourds, how to make a telephone, home exercise, window decorations, making homemade candy, and plenty of indoor and outdoor games are just a few of the ideas included. Black and white drawings illustrate many of the ideas. 474 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    In this sequel to The Science Chef, the secrets of food are again explored, but this time, young science chefs travel around the globe, and experiment with foods commonly used in different countries. For example, in Italy, we read about popular foods from that country, and then experiment with tomatoes by making a drying tray and drying them for use on "Focaccia with Sun-Dried Tomatoes." And when we head over to Germany, we learn how to make an acid-base indicator from cabbage juice, and then use the rest of the cabbage to make "Sweet-and-Sour Cabbage." Or we go to China, and learn how orange soda fizzes - and whip up some "Awesome Egg Rolls." All in all, countries "visited" include Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Israel, India, China, Japan, Thailand, Morocco and Ghana, with each county featuring information about its food, a related food experiment, and several recipes. With a great mix of experiments and tasty recipes, this is a natural follow-up for lovers of the Science Chef, especially if they love to try new things! Cooking skills, kitchen safety, nutrition, and food safety are also covered. - Jess

    To quote the author, Paul E. Little, "It doesn't matter what you think of Play-Doh®, Napoleon, or Richard Nixon. It does matter what you think of Jesus Christ." Another quote reads, "The Christian experience is not like a man with a fried egg on his ear who claims the egg gives him peace and joy. Rather, the Christian experience is securely bound to the objective, historical fact of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ." This book has been written for the person in the classroom or the pew, highlighting the bottom-line truths and the non-negotiables of Christianity. You're sure to come away with a good understanding of what God has done to bring us into a relationship with Him through His son, Jesus Christ. The end of the book has a series of study questions and the general theme of each of the 10 chapters. This is information every Christian should absorb. - Tom
