    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.

    Virginia Sorensen has acquired the prize, "Most Distinguished Contribution to American Literature for Children," with this fine work. When Marly's father returns from the war, he is a different man. However, with a few days "syruping" out in the country, the treasured aspects of his personality begin to reappear. Near Maple Hill, Marly's family spends most of their time with the neighbors, the Chrises. Mr. Chris has so much to teach about syrup-making, plants, flowers, and animals, and Marly quickly comes to regard him affectionately. Since their short stays at Maple Hill are doing father so much good, the family is faced with the decision to reside there permanently. Marly considers all the miracles she has witnessed there as valid reason to stay. This is a wonderful story about family relationships, neighborly friendship, and all of the beauty that nature bears. It is a story which must not be passed up.

    Not many children would want to face a blizzard, tramping through a forest with the snow coming down fast and hard. But, that's what makes this story unique. William Steig has captured a unique story of love and determination in Brave Irene. Irene's mother is a dressmaker who has just completed a dress for the duchess, which she intends to wear that very night. However, when her mother is too ill to deliver it herself, Irene volunteers to brave the snow to deliver the parcel to the palace. Along the way, Irene encounters several trials that hinder her mission. Will she succeed in the darkness and whirling snow and deliver the dress on time? Pb. – John

    Two Australians, Mem Fox and Julie Vivas, have crafted a heart-warming story of a young boy who befriends the residents of a rest home, especially one lady in particular, Miss Nancy. Wilfrid Gordon is told that Miss Nancy has lost her memory, and not knowing what that means, sets out on a journey to find it for her. Having lived Downunder, I enjoy that Fox and Vivas have captured a bit of Aussie life in the writing and illustrations. Pb. – John

    "Many, many years ago, in Sorrento there lived a boy named Giovanni who had no mother and no father. He dressed in rags and begged for his food and slept in doorways. But he was happy, and he could do something wonderful. He could juggle." This is how the old French legend begins. This clown who made people smile his whole life is sure to make you smile as well! Your heart will be warmed with the miracle at the end of the story as Giovanni does his last performance before a statue of Our Lady and the Christ Child. Tomie dePaola is the author and illustrator, and he has painstakingly reproduced this old story as close to its original telling as possible. Accompanied by Renaissance-inspired watercolor paintings that are full of vibrant color and cartoon-like characters. – elise

    The Combo kit includes all Level 1 components plus Instructor's Directions for Kindergarten, two consumable student worktexts, and a set of six phonetic storybook readers. The student worktexts are totally revised, even down to the theme and names. With a train theme, the All Aboard and On Track workbooks teach alike and different, classification, completing a pattern, tracing, following directions, reading readiness skills, letter recognition, letter sounds, manuscript writing, word blending, vocabulary, beginning reading, comprehension, spelling, listening, and speaking. On Track also includes ten tear-out, color, and read storybooks. The six phonetic storybook readers are correlated to the instruction, reinforcing the phonics, reading, and writing skills taught. One colorful reader covers each short vowel, plus a sixth reader with combined short vowel words. Student materials are also available separately for teaching more than one student with the program. For parents who did not purchase the Combo kit initially, the Instructor's Directions for Kindergarten is not available separately; however, the publisher says that you should not need it. Read on for a full description of the Level 1 kit. We are again able to offer the workbooks and readers for the Sing, Spell, Read & Write kits; see below for Kindergarten components.

    A great book for the beginning stargazer! Authored by H.A. Rey (of Curious George fame), the book starts with the more well-known constellations, introducing and naming them and showing you the constellation both with, and without, lines connecting the stars. Also, it shows you the names of the bigger stars, and which constellation they are in. Quizzes are given after several constellations, and "sky views" show you the sky from the north and south at different times in the year. These pages give you plenty of practice picking out constellations on the page before you move outside for the real thing. It also helps you to find out exactly what months, days, and times a certain constellation will be visible. Stories about constellations are fun to read and make the constellations easy to remember. The sun and planets are also covered, and you learn what planets you can expect to see from earth, and when. Soon, you'll be ready for your own trip to outer space! - Megan

    I've been waiting for this book for awhile – and I suspect there are others waiting right there with me. History of the Ancient World gave us a sequel to Story of the World for older readers but left us with the need to design our own curriculum and study materials. This is so much better! Now History of the Ancient World can function as a stand-alone high school (or middle school if your child is ready) history/geography course.

    There is a set of exercises for each chapter. Some sections – Who, What, Where and Comprehension – are answered in one or two complete sentences and can be done "open-book." The Critical Thinking section (not done open book) requires the student to produce a brief written reflection on the ideas presented in the chapter. The student is helped in this by preliminary exercises. The fourth section – Map Work (not included with every chapter) – asks the student to go through a carefully structured set of steps – tracing repeatedly, then copying while looking at the book, and finally, reproducing from memory. [All needed maps are provided in the back of the book. Map Work will require black pencils, colored pencils, and large amounts of tracing paper.]

    The set of 85 worksheets (reproducible for families) are in the back third of the book. The front third? Well, I guess you would call it the answer key, but it feels like more. Each item/question to be identified or answered is specifically referenced to the text (by page and paragraph number). Sample answers are given for each item including the essay questions. That's it! There are no lesson plans or additional information or teacher helps - just what you need to provide a strong history course. Although there are no quarterly or final tests, these would be easy to compile based on the information provided here. 533 pgs, pb. Medieval – 832 pgs, pb ~ Janice

      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

    Get Ready, Get Set, and Go (for the Code) have provided homeschooled students a low-stress, engaging introduction to phonics for years. Now the publisher has added this Teacher’s Guide which expands on the skills presented and provides teachers with various options for instruction and reinforcement. There are a wide variety of activities offered with easy adaptability for the one-on-one learning situation of homeschools. The format is simple and consistent: quick review, phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, completing student pages, fluency, comprehension, writing, and reinforcement activities. Please note that some of the instruction formerly found in the student books, which made them stand-alone, is now included in the teacher’s guide, so you will probably now need the teacher’s guide. ~ Janice
