    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.

    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

    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

    "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

    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 emphasis in this program is on learning to read longer (multi-syllabic) words. Along the way, basic phonics concepts are reviewed and some more advanced ones are covered. This is not just a continuation of the Learn to Read program by the same company, however. It does not pick up where that program leaves off, teaching the remaining phonograms. Rather, it covers many of the same concepts, only applied to multsyllabic words, and teaches students to "chunk" words for reading.

    There are four color levels in the program, with ten lessons in each. The Blue Level covers compound words, two-syllable words divided between two consonants, words with three consonants in the middle, 24 essential sight words, two-syllable words with silent e, and two-syllable words with r-influenced vowels. The Green Level covers open syllables with long vowel sound, words that end in consonant plus le, 24 sight words, sounds of y at the end of a word, suffixes --tion and --sion, and reading three-syllable words. The Orange Level teaches tricky vowel words, vowel teams with a long a sound, vowel teams with a long e sound, vowel teams with a long o sound, reading three- and four-syllable words, and 24 more sight words. The final Red Level continues with other tricky vowel pairs, vowel pairs that make separate syllables, soft c and g, reading even longer (up to five-syllable) words, plus introduces 24 more sight words.

    Each level also contains three review lessons.

    Lessons are meant to take approximately 30 minutes each and consist of 1) playing a computer game; 2) reading a story silently; 3) reading the same story out loud to a parent/teacher; 4) putting a sticker on the progress poster. The computer game presents and practices each new skill. Computer sessions take up the bulk of the lesson. Several different activities are used to introduce and reinforce each concept. The games are geared to an older child -- not at all "cutesy" -- and are very well suited to the material.

    Once the computer activities are completed, your child is ready to implement his/her new skill by reading a short story that makes use of the newly learned technique. Then he/she will read the story to you. When an entire level (ten lessons) is completed, the child is rewarded with a chapter book (Strange Museum hardcover) to read.

    If your child has mastered beginning phonics and wants to tackle larger words, this program will supply the word attack skills he needs.
