    Another Newbery Award (1994) winner from the author of Number the Stars. A remarkable coming-of-age story about a young man who overcomes his society. Set in a "utopian" or "dystopian" (depending on your point of view!) society which is extremely regulated and controlled, Jonas is selected for the very special job of becoming the Receiver of Memory in this story about a community of the future. When Jonas realizes, however, what has been lost and what the price of conformity is, he makes a daring decision that will forever change his life. Our whole family read and discussed this book, finding it an excellent starting point for frank discussion of individuality and responsibility vs. security and homogeneity. Jonas is chosen to be the Receiver of Memory for his community. As he becomes aware of the choices his world has made, he is faced with a difficult decision.

    In the conclusion of The Giver series, we read the flip side of the story. It's the story of Claire, baby Gabe's birth mother. Gabe was her first birth, and it doesn't go as expected. There's an emergency c-section, followed by her swift reassignment to the fish hatchery. She never forgot about her "Product" though, especially when she learns it is a baby boy. She anonymously volunteers at the nursery, and gets to know – and love - her son. In the tumult and confusion that follows Jonas' and the baby Gabe's disappearance, she escapes the community on a fishing boat, and instead ends up shipwrecked and adopted into a small fishing village. In the years that pass, she must make some agonizing choices and sacrifices to find Gabe again. This volume is written for an older audience (although the birth scene isn't too graphic), and it paints a beautiful picture of the relationship between a mother and child. 393 pages, pb. By Lois Lowry.

    If you give to a ministry, are you responsible for how it uses your money? Author Mary Kinney Branson believes that it is in the best interest of the giver, and the Kingdom, for a person to make sure that his donation is used wisely. Most of her story relates to her tenure at the North American Mission Board, an organization supported by the Southern Baptistââ‚™s Cooperative Program. She relates episodes of wasteful spending and extravagant living among some of the brass of the organization. Although the story is confined to this one organization, the principles that she outlines can be applied to evaluating the operations of any organization to whom you might donate money. 193 pg, pb. - Bob

    In the harsh, primitive world where Kira lives, the weak are killed because they are considered useless. This is bad news for Kira, because she has a twisted leg. She was saved at birth because of her mother, but now her mother is gone. Will the powerful council spare her life a second time? And will she ever find out about the mysteries that surround her? I really didn't want to put this book down to write the description, it was so interesting and well-written. What will become of her when the village women want to use her home as a playpen and cast her out of the village? Is there hope of surviving beyond the borders of the hostile village? By Lois Lowry, this is a companion to the Newberry Award Winner The Giver. ~ Mark

    Tea parties have always been a hit at our house. Janine and Stevie would always beg to have a tea party, so we would scrounge together snack items, brew some special "spice tea," and gather around the plastic dishes to enjoy some inane conversation. We even had special "tea party names," which we used. Well, if tea parties are popular at your house as well, your young party-givers will enjoy this! This book covers it all - from invitations, decorations, refreshments, games and activities, crafts, and party favors for a handful of themed and "classic" tea parties to proper tea manners for kids, hostess tips, recipes, and plenty of other useful information! Use these ideas "with all the trimmings" for a knock-out birthday tea party, or pick and choose ideas for a more informal afternoon snack time tea party. The book is copiously illustrated with full-color, cute illustrations, and little extra bits of information about tea, tea parties, and history are thrown in as well. With so many unique and "grown-up" ideas here, I'm definitely going to have to invest in this one with Janine and Stevie - I'm sure they wouldn't mind a good tea party! - Jess

    You don't have to have a degree in literature to discuss books with your child. Lawrence and Nancy Goldstone do such a wonderful job of laying out a plan that anyone can do it. This book is written to be a guide to begin a parent-child book club. It would also be a good discussion guide to use with your own children. The reading in this book is recommended for children in grades 2nd through 5th.

    The authors teach readers how to be "book detectives" and find the story hidden within the story. Stories are written in layers, and readers need to peel them away by determining which characters fit the role of protagonist and antagonist, the importance of setting, identifying the climax, and point of view. They even spend some time looking for the deeper meaning within poetry. Using this approach will allow readers to unlock the adventure in every story.

    A list of the books used by the authors in their reading groups is included. In second grade they include Mr. Popper's Penguins, Babe: The Gallant Pig, Charlotte's Web, Frindle, and various poems. Third grade includes Half Magic, The Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, The Phantom Tollbooth, The Enormous Egg, and Bull Run. In fourth grade they read The View from Saturday, White Lilacs, The Giver, Animal Farm, and The Call of the Wild. The fifth grade list includes A Wrinkle in Time, Macario, Lost Horizon, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and The Time Machine. Along with the books used in their group they include some alternative selections. You are taken through some of the books step-by-step to illustrate how you can have discussions with your children in the manner suggested by the authors.

    I was surprised at what an easy-read this is. I really enjoyed the book summaries, insightful discussions, and the humorous way some of the information is presented. This is a wonderful resource for those who want to help kids experience literature rather than just speed through books. 206 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

    This is a comprehensive guide to treating emergency victims of any age in any situation. Plenty of first aid procedures are given with color photographs illustrating vital actions and how to perform them. For each condition covered, an introduction describes the likely cause and effect of the injury or illness, with signs and symptoms grouped to help you quickly recognize what is wrong with the victim. The goals of each treatment are listed along with boxes warning against actions that may endanger the victim or harm the care giver. Statements help care givers decide on the best course of action depending on the victim's condition, and the step-by-step treatments enable you to act quickly and correctly. Cross-reference sections direct care givers to associated conditions or complications. The book not only gives the most current and helpful first aid procedures, it provides information and charts to show why the techniques work by describing how people are structured and how they function. For example, before the section on problems with breathing, the book describes and illustrates the respiratory system, pointing out different structures involved in breathing and how the process works. Before the section on burns is a description and illustration of the different layers and parts of the skin and how they react to burns. All of the conditions and procedures covered are given in topical chapters with a color coded system. The early chapters include a general first aid section, safety rules and steps to follow in any procedure; an emergency section that tells specifically what to do in situations like a road accident or fire; and a practice of first aid section with information on making initial assessments, removing restrictive clothing, and aftercare. Then the chapters focus on specific injuries and procedures. These include unconsciousness and resuscitation; respiratory problems; wounds and circulation; bone, joint, and muscle injuries; effects of heat and cold; foreign objects, poisoning; bites and stings; miscellaneous medical conditions (such as heart attack, stroke, seizures, fever, sore throat); techniques and equipment; and emergency first aid. A detailed index is included. 288 pgs. ~ Rachel
