    "America is unlike any other nation in the world. Born in 1776 with the Declaration of Independence, she has had only one form of government since the U.S. constitution was ratified in 1789. Neither our closest allies nor our fiercest enemies have experienced the stability with which America has been blessed…America Exceptionalism is the result of distinctive Biblical ideas such as God-given inalienable rights, limited government, full republicanism, separation of powers with checks and balances and especially, an educated and virtuous citizenry." (From the Foreword)

    As Christians, we recognize God's blessings on this nation from the beginning, and yet we are living in a generation that is seeing the slow erosion of this blessing as our nation drifts farther and farther from His Word. If you are longing to better understand America's Christian heritage and your role in it, then read this book! Beginning with the biblical foundation for citizenship and the characteristics necessary to form a biblical worldview, the author presents the historical precedence of our Christian nation and takes a serious look at how our nation has gotten to the place it is today, concluding with a challenge to believers to take a stand for biblical values and liberty. In the words of the Old Testament prophet, Hosea, "My People are destroyed for a lack of knowledge." As Believers, let us learn what it means to be an active, stable and committed member of society based on a Godly foundation. An excellent study for high school students and adults, each chapter offers thought provoking questions for reflection and discussion. 223 pgs, pb. ~Deanne

    Social networking websites (MySpace, Facebook, Xanga, etc.) have become a huge part of how kids communicate with their peers and express themselves. While there are some risks associated with social networking, it is nonetheless becoming more and more a part of everyday life (the book points out how it is being likened to the same kind of social change as upgrading to cars from buggies). Since it seems futile to ban kids from something that is such a large part of the world we live in, this book shows how Christian parents can make sure their kids are being safe and God-honoring online. The book is easy to read and very practical, giving parents great information about MySpace (and social sites in general), with step-by-step directions on how to use the site and see what your children have been up to. It first gives details about what exactly MySpace is, explaining why teenagers love it so much and how it is making such a change in the world. It shows you how to navigate around MySpace (and even make your own profile if you wish), with instructions any parent could follow, even if youââ‚â„¢re not particularly computer literate. It details how teens use the sites, how to be sure your child is ready to use MySpace, safety tips to follow, and the risks versus rewards of using the sites. It even shows how many people use the sites to take a stand about issues and spread Godââ‚â„¢s Word. There are also tips for alternatives if you ultimately decide the risks are not worth the rewards when it comes to social networking. A useful glossary of computer/MySpace terms is included. 214 pgs, pb. ~Rachel

    Roaming around the country to various homeschooling conventions, I've spent my share of time on historic Route 66. However, I've never seen the theme of Route 66 used in such a fun and productive way. Oftentimes Sunday School and Bible classes get in a rut of telling the same basic stories and doing the same activities over and over again. There's no danger of that when using this fun theme, because lessons and activities are provided for every book in the Bible. Students learn about each book (author, setting, etc.), as well as important stories and lessons within them. The book seems intended to be used in a Sunday school setting, with lessons divided into three 12-week units, but it could easily be used for a Bible class with just a student or two, or each activity page could also stand alone and be used to supplement other materials. Each lesson begins with a travel guide for teachers, which includes an overview of the featured book, key verses and stories in the featured book, warm-up questions, and ideas and suggestions to help with lesson planning. The lessons can require fairly small amounts of prep work, or you can go all out with the Route 66 theme; the material is pretty flexible. Three reproducible activity pages are included in each lesson, based on that particular lesson's book of the Bible. Activities can be completed with pencil or markers and include things like crosswords, word searches, hidden pictures, fill in the blanks, short-answer questions, and more. Fuel Up pages have short answer questions challenging students to read specific verses in the Bible to find the answers. Review pages (or Remember Where We've Been? sections) are provided at the end of each unit, which offer cumulative review questions for students to answer alone or in groups. The Route 66 theme helps students feel like they're really going on an adventure as they work their way through the 66 books of the Bible. There are even instructions and reproducible pages for making a Souvenir Scrapbook, which is a creative and fun way to keep track of what they learn. If you're looking for a fun way to educate your child or Sunday School group on each book of the Bible as well as the author, era, purpose, key verse, and the main characters and stories of each book, you should definitely take a look at this book. With all of the different components, your students are sure to get a solid overview of the Bible. By Christian Ditchfield, 192 pgs, pb. ~Rachel

    The Heavens truly do declare creation! I am always amazed when I look into the night sky. I wonder how anyone can look at the vastness and not believe in an awesome, powerful God. You can tell by the statement I've made that I have a Christian worldview. Dr. Jason Lisle discusses popular theories and ideas about the universe in light of worldview bias and what the Bible has to say. Big Bang theory, age of the universe, alien life and more are discussed using scripture to analyze. It is refreshing to read a book about astronomy that declares God's glory! Although he presents very detailed information, it is presented in a way that any person with a little knowledge of astronomy can understand. This is an attractive hardcover book with beautiful photographs and illustrations. Information is divided into 5 chapters titled The Splendor of God's creation; The Universe Confirms the Bible, The Age of the Universe, The Bible and Modern Astronomy, and War of the Worldviews. Endnotes give fine details not included in the main part of the text, and a glossary offers definitions of terms that may be new to you. You'll learn about nebula, star clusters, galaxies, planets, comets and much more from a Christian perspective.

    The Bible is the history book of the universe as well as the authoritative word of God. It has proven its accuracy repeatedly, and so it stands to reason that it would be accurate when it comes to the origin and age of the universe and the topic of the heavens. As Christians we need to understand how the Bible supports and explains phenomena we encounter in the realm of nature. This is more than a book about astronomy; it's about your worldview. ~ Donna

    One morning Mark finds a mysterious blob of jelly on the beach. He slides it into a bag of seawater and takes it with him to work to show his grandmother. She promises him a surprise later, and they leave the bag by the sink while they work their food stand. As his grandma and uncle fill orders, Mark refills the straws, napkins, and condiments. After a busy day of work, they close up the stand, and Mark's grandmother takes him to a boat. The owner drives out to sea, and Mark receives his beautiful surprise.

    If you found high school American history bland, but you actually enjoy reading about history, you will thoroughly enjoy this book – and chances are your student will too. Author James W. Loewen, a college history professor, wrote this after realizing that all his incoming freshman students regurgitated the same bland (and sometimes inaccurate) facts about American history. He then surveyed twelve popular American history high school textbooks digging for answers, and noted how different events in history were presented and what was (and was not) covered. His conclusion was that history textbooks tend to present history as a "fixed" story instead of "best-guess research," and leave out details which readers may find offensive or even thought-provoking. In twelve chapters, he covers topics like "heroification" in history, Christopher Columbus' expeditions to America, early settlement, the existing Native American population and what interactions between Europeans and Native Americans were really like, the invisibility of racism in textbooks and conversely, the invisibility of anti-racism. He also dips into what students are taught about the government, why recent history is often left out, and why history is taught this way. For each chapter, he draws upon primary source documents (some commonly available, like Las Casas' writings on Columbus) and the research of historians to present a more balanced account of history. Yes, it is disappointing at times to read about our "historical heroes," and see them as human. On the other hand, I have to say that his treatment of these events is usually very fair. In the chapter on Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving, I braced myself to read some very harsh criticism of the Pilgrims, yet, I did not find it. It was a much more even treatment of the Pilgrims than I have read in many other recently-published history books. Throughout each topic covered, the author asks why students are not taught certain facts about history. He argues that a more balanced view, the inclusion of more theories and questions historians are currently asking, as well as a more "human" treatment of people throughout history will add interest – not turn students off to history. As a homeschooler, I would add that because we have more control over what history we absorb, some of these insights will not come as a surprise – especially to those who delve into period texts and primary source documents. Also, because this book was written in 1995, I think it has already had an impact on the way textbooks and even supplementary books are written. Unfortunately, this often seems to mean that the authors take a different biased approach, writing from an anti-white or anti-European viewpoint, or judging events standing solidly in present times and attitudes, always looking backwards. If your student is mature and interested in history, they will enjoy this book – and you will probably enjoy reading it along with them. The discussion raised would be terrific! However, there may be portions you find offensive, although, as I have mentioned above, the author does not come off as angry and biased, as you will find in many other modern histories. 383 pgs, pb. – Jess

      This is definitely “knot” a sit-down game! Players stand in a circle and hold on to different colored bands. Each player will hold the end of a different colored band in each hand. A kick spinner is placed on the floor in the middle of the circle. Players take turn kicking the spinner, which instructs them to go over or under the band of a certain color. Play goes around the circle twice, then the group is challenged to get “unTwangled” without letting go of the bands! As a team-building game, successfully recreating the initial circle makes you all winners! 4-8 players.

     This exact replica reprint of an 1884 book is written in one syllable words and was originally used to teach children to read while teaching history. Evidently, it was common to write books “in one syllable” in the late 19th century. Of course, some multisyllabic words must be used (United, president, Tennessee, etc.), but these are divided into syllables to ease reading.

      This book tells the story of our country from the first discovery of our continent by Norse men through the times of the Pilgrims, the Revolutionary War and the The Great War and takes a different attitude than some modern books. In the words of the author: “This is a tale in short words for small folks, on the way our land grew. . . . God has led us on through ways that have been strange, to reach the place where we now stand. The men of all the earth look on our land, and we are glad to have them call it THE LAND OF THE FREE and THE HOME OF THE BRAVE.”

      As a facsimile reprint, you’ll note some idiosyncrasies that may seem odd to us. It is printed with two columns and the type size is relatively small (I estimate about 12 pt.) for an early elementary book. There are approximately 250 words per page. While the words are not difficult and quite readable, it may take a little time for your child to get used to the format. Also, rendering complex information into one syllable words has its challenges. Take for instance this passage about what would have then been a fairly recent event: “But we must now go back to the year 1876 when the U-ni-ted States kept its birth-day. Ten times ten years had gone by since A-mer-i-ca was made free, and the U.S. was born. By this time it was a great strong child.” Obviously, there is a quaintness about the wording.

      There are six original, full-page illustrations. Frankly, I’m impressed with these detailed renderings of historical events. By itself, this is an intriguing book – just for its historical value alone. Use it as a first reader or as a companion reader to a history study. Or, perhaps, use it to get an idea of what education in those one-room schoolhouses was all about. 130 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
