    Sit back and enjoy a good listen with master storyteller Jim Weiss. A true artist at both composition and vocals, Jim pumps life into classics and tales ranging from humorous to historical. We’ve received accolades from homeschoolers and reviewers across the nation, not to mention the numerous prestigious awards these products have garnered. After listening to several sample tapes, we heartily agree! Great for road trips, sick rooms, or just a quiet time of sharing together, put on your imagination and one of these tapes/CDs, and lose yourself for an hour or so in a great adventure or lighthearted tale.

    This guide by Matt Whitling provides instruction for teaching ten of Shakespeare's most famous plays including Macbeth, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, and Much Ado about Nothing. The instruction is based off and requires a copy of Tales from Shakespeare by Charles and Mary Lamb, a readable adaptation of the plays for younger students (listed below). Though the teaching tips are meant for larger classes, the worksheets and test provided are great for homeschoolers. A similar two-page worksheet is provided for each of the ten plays. Students are instructed to record statistics (like plot type, setting, etc.), describe the attributes and roles of characters, summarize the plot, sketch a memorable scene, define vocabulary, and answer comprehension questions. Answers are included. A four-page exam tests all ten of the plays. Most of the questions are short-answer questions, with a few matching. A review sheet is given before the exam for study. An answer key is also provided for the final exam. The back of the book includes Venn diagrams showing how Shakespeare's comedies and tragedies have overlapping themes. Overall, this guide provides great review of Shakespeare's plays and requires minimal effort from teachers. Reproducible, spiral bound, 50 pages. ~ Rachel

    Harold Bloom (originator of Bloom's Taxonomy, a hierarchy of learning) has selected the stories and poems in this anthology. Bloom does not accept the category of "Children's Literature" as he feels it implies stories have been dumbed down. He blends Kipling, Carroll, and Lear with Hawthorne, Gogol and Turgenev, all chosen to illuminate and entertain. He feels children often stop reading because they are not challenged by what they read. This anthology includes 41 stories (many quite short) and 83 poems, including 8 selections by Lewis Carroll. The writings are organized into four themed sections, one for each season. Most works are from the 19th century or earlier. Fantasy is represented in animal fables and fairy tales. Comedy is throughout. I loved reading Bloom's intro to the book. He is truly in love with the writing he has chosen for this collection. Some titles includes: the Wind and the Rain (Shakespeare,) A Crazy Tale (Chesterton,) the Remarkable Rocket (Wilde,) the Goose Girl (Bros Grimm,) the Stag Looking Into the Water (Aesop,) the Recessional (Saki,) the Red Shoes (Anderson,) the Eagle (Tennyson.) pb, 572pp. ~Sara

    I’ll admit it – as a young music student, I thought classical music was boooring without lyrics to tell a story. It wasn’t until many years later in a collegiate music appreciation class when I began to hear pieces like Peter and the Wolf and other classic story pieces that I realized how wrong I was!

    This book contains 20 pieces of classical music and an accompanying CD. The book goes through each song individually, explaining the literature it is based on, the ballet it is derived from, or any other information beneficial for giving context. Each page also has a few illustrations to go along, but the real key to the story is in the text. After the section explaining each story, there is a listening guide to show what instruments or pitches are used to indicate different voices or actions. Additionally, there is a short biography of each conductor and a glossary of musical terms used throughout the book. This is a unique, kid-friendly approach to classical music that I wish I had owned as a child! What a great foundation to music appreciation! Parents, as are often found in Shakespeare or other tales of that era, many of the pieces contain stories about elves, witches, fairies, and two pieces in particular mention the Devil. 68 hardcover pages. – Laura
