        268,820 square miles of diverse cultures and geography. What sets Texas apart from other states in our nation? Is it the Wild West qualities or the modern cities of steel and glass? Maybe it is the mesas and plateaus, or the 367 miles of coastland? Diverse cultures and peoples come together to create the mystique and attitude that is Texas.

      Telling the 500-year saga of this unique state, this book covers prehistoric times, missions, the birth of the republic, statehood and settlements, the Civil War, the great storm of Galveston, the oil boom, NASA’s mission control, and the Latino influence. Activities include constructing a replica Alamo, designing a ranch branding iron, growing an artificial reef, cleaning up oil spills, building a miniature Fiesta Flambeau float and much more. Includes timeline, a list of historic sites to visit in person or online, and a listing of additional resources to learn more. Black & white illustrations. Indexed. sc, 133 pgs. ~ Deanne

    Written in a similar style to the other Don't Know Much About books, this journey through the 50 states presents several questions and answers about each state as it is covered. Each page features one state (except for Texas, which of course needs two), with a small outline map of the state and other basic facts about the state, including the state bird and flower near the top of the page. Then several questions about the state are posed, some about more basic information about the state, and some involving more trivia-like information, such as "How many trees does it take to make a gallon of maple syrup?" for Vermont,"What is a keystone, anyway?" for Pennsylvania, or "Why were Nebraska's first settlers called 'sodbusters'?" for Nebraska. Other small interesting facts and state jokes are included as well. Also, a complete map of the U.S. is featured inside the front and back covers. Not a comprehensive look at each state, but an entertaining and informative read.

       This inspiring autobiography of RG LeTourneau who called himself “God’s businessman,” propels you along—as I imagine RG did in his conversations and life. God gifted him with inventive genius, an enterprising spirit and salvation, and in response RG dedicated his business, his money, and his life to God. Today thousands have been impacted for the Kingdom through the dedication, determination and decisions of LeTourneau, “just a mechanic whom the Lord has blessed.” A literature component of Notgrass Exploring Economics course. 4 1/4x7”, 296pp, sc. ~ Ruth

      If you’ve considered purchasing the larger Word Teaser sets, this set is a great option to try first. This is a mini deck with 50 cards (rather than 150 in the larger). Each card contains a question regarding a U.S. state along with a hint on one side, and then information on the back. For example, “What U.S. state is only about 55 miles from the Russian border?” The hint is: “This state could easily hold Texas, California, and Montana in its borders.” Although there is just one question, the real wealth of information is on the second side. Each card becomes a “fast facts” card about a state, with the name, abbreviation, capital, population, land area, date it entered the union, nickname, and motto. With all these facts, this set is great for create-your-own games or supplementing a unit study on the United States. Cards are 2 ½” x 3 ½” and come in a storage box. For 2 or more players. ~ Ruth

    From author Bill O’Reilly comes the juvenile adaptation of his book Killing Kennedy. Starting with JFK’s inauguration and continuing until his funeral, this interesting book is filled with information not only about the President and his achievements, but also the political, social and cultural climate surrounding the times in which Kennedy led our nation. All the extra details may sound superfluous, but as I was reading, I found that I could better understand what it would have been like to have lived at that time. (Parents, this extra info could make for fun supplemental activities as well - I mean, who doesn’t want an excuse to listen to The Twist during their school day?)

    There is also a lot of information surrounding the shooter, Lee Harvey Oswald, to help create a more perfect understanding of one of America’s tragedies. There are tons of historic photographs and maps to accompany the text, which make for a highly engaging read for a history fan. 318 softcover pages. – Laura
