    Ronnie comes home from school excited about the upcoming Christmas pageant. There's a stranger in his house talking to his Aunt Martha. The stranger turns out to be Mr. Flagg, the keeper of the lighthouse at Tern Rock. He convinces Ronnie's aunt to tend to the lighthouse where she and her late husband lived and worked for fourteen years. She agrees on one condition – Mr. Flagg has to promise to return by the fifteenth of December so they can be home for the Christmas festivities. The two weeks fly by for Ronnie and his Aunt as they settle nicely into the routine of taking care of the light, completing schoolwork, and managing other various jobs. However, the fifteenth comes and goes with no sign of Mr. Flagg. As the days creep closer to Christmas, it is becoming very clear that Mr. Flagg has broken his promise. Will they miss Christmas at home? This Newbery Honor book by Julia Sauer is a Christmas classic your whole family will love! 62 pgs, pb. – elise

      This book holds a wealth of presidential info, albeit sometimes tongue-in-cheek (imagine large sunglasses on each president). From the country’s foundation to 2013, each presidency is explained in bite-sized pieces and interesting sections: The Bottom Line; What Was He Thinking?; Why Should I Care?; Breakin’ It Down; Previous Career; First Couple; Presidency; and What Has he Done for me Lately?. Other facts are highlighted in side bars, charts, graphs and full-color illustrations, and a special Presidential Times newspaper overview section. Important themes from each presidency are stressed so you can work through the text and easily compare. How did each president view the constitution? What were themes in his platform speech? I can see this being a handy, go-to, overview reference for your teens as you work through American history. Quite an engaging book that will appeal to even your non-history buffs. I love that this book shows how past actions and decisions affect our present, with the implication that our present will affect the future. By the same publishers as Our Constitution Rocks (#006864), 8” x 10”, 316 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    If you have a young one interested in rocks and collecting, this book can offer some fun supplementary activities to educate them on the subject. Explore Rocks and Minerals teaches children about the structure of the earth, minerals and crystals, igneous/sedimentary/metamorphic rocks, fossils, and how to be a rock hound. All of this is done by incorporating 20 different hands-on projects that will make the learning fun like making an edible 'earth' model, growing your own crystals from Epsom salts, modeling basaltic columns, baking 'pumice' meringue cookies, eating a 'sed-sandwich' for lunch, and wrapping up by making your own rock display. More than just fun, your children will be introduced to the amazing world of rocks and minerals. This non-reproducible book is divided into 7 chapters and each includes information on the topic, vocabulary words, interesting facts, black & white illustrations and activities. The back of the book includes a glossary and a page of resources in case you are interested in further investigation. You can use this book as a supplement to your curriculum or do a mini-study on rocks and minerals. Either way, you may be training a future geologist. ~ Donna

    One of the coolest things I remember about visiting a local rock and gem museum was the room with the "glowing rocks." Under regular light, they look like any other rock, but turn on a UV light and they glow in beautiful colors pink, green, blue, purple. Now you can see this phenomenon with the Fluorescent Rocks Science Kit by GeoCentral.

    The kit contains 9 rocks (approx. 1/2" to 3/4" each), a guide, magnifier, streak plate and UV pen. Use this kit to learn why rocks glow, test their hardness, and more. ~ Donna
