    Maps of the USA introduces young students to each state in the U.S., along with details about each state and facts such as the state bird, flower, population, and area. The reproducible worksheets are pretty open-ended and can be used alongside any history program or state study to take a closer look at each state. The first hundred pages contain two-page spreads on each state, with state facts and black-and-white pictures to color on the left-hand side, and the state itself featured on the right-hand side. The right-hand page contains an outline map of the state itself, with geopolitical information, such as important cities, rivers, geographical features, and neat places to visit in that state. A smaller map of the U.S. is also provided with the featured state shaded in, so the student can see the location of the state in relation to the rest of the nation. These worksheets can be used to make a state notebook, or to use with any number of state activities, and can be colored, labeled, etc. Following the individual state pages are worksheets on the U.S. as a whole, including regions of the U.S. along with a segment of the map and questions for each, maps of the U.S. as a whole, both with and without state names filled in, a states and capitals chart, supplemental word puzzles, and maps featuring waterways, climate zones, and physical features of our nations along with questions for students to answer based on the map. "A U.S. State in Review" page is also included at the end, which can be reproduced and used alongside the individual state worksheets to fill in more facts about the state, draw its outline, and include in a state notebook, if they're making one. Answers included. - Jess

    Make the most of table time by using interactive placemats. This set has 50, one for each state, which your child can write on or add the stickers to (25 included.)

Since they are paper, you could laminate them to keep and use at meal times again and again. Each mat is 13x10” and blank on the backside. A plastic 12x9” map of the USA comes with and can be used as wipeable placemat or just as reference. This would make a great sibling gift for a family with a new baby! ~ Sara

    The time-honored classic Bible storybook by this same name was originally published in 1948. Based on the premise that children should know the Bible stories as early as possible, this edition has been updated in language particularly for readers ages 6 to 8. Key points are explained in a way that preserves the story but does not include aspects that are age inappropriate. For example, when discussing the reason for Joseph’s imprisonment, the author writes, “Then the wife of the rich man became angry at Joseph. She told lies about him. Her husband believed the lies and put Joseph in prison.” Sixty stories (28 from the Old Testament and 32 from the New), each about two pages long, incorporate traditional style, full-color illustrations. The Old Testament stories span from creation through Daniel. The New Testament stories focus only on the Gospels and end with Jesus’ ascension. This would serve as a good introduction to Bible stories. 6” x 8 ¼”, 142 pp, hc. ~ Ruth

    Here's a really tasty supplement to any study of the United States! While state studies often include state birds, flowers, capitals and other facts, most don't devote much time to "state foods." This book includes easy-to-follow instructions for preparing a complete meal - main course, side dish, and dessert - typical to one eaten by people of each of the 50 states. When too tempting to pass up, some states also include additional recipes for breakfast foods or snacks. Fun state food facts pepper the pages to keep you busy while the meal is cooking. As they say, "When in Iowa, eat as the Iowans do." - Steph

    This is a collection of four short stories from an author by the name of George MacDonald. You may not have heard of this man before, but many authors you do know credit him with being the grandfather of their genre. Such famous authors as C.S. Lewis, Madeline L'Engle, W.H. Auden, Charles Williams, and J.R.R. Tolkien were all influenced by George MacDonald, who, C.S. Lewis says, writes allegorical and mythopoeic fantasy "…better than any man." The stories are fun to read, and include several illustrations. 172 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    Learn a lot about U.S. geography by taking a trip across the U.S.A. A big, colorful 11" x 17" map accompanies this engaging book, giving students plenty of practice using a map as they "travel" all over the country. Fifty pages of questions and activities have students practice using direction, position, distance, and comparison, analyze information, and draw conclusions. Besides learning basic map skills, your children will learn a great deal about the individual states including locations, abbreviations, nicknames, industry, and more.

At the end of the book is a blank map of the U.S. for children to write the names of the states in (after finishing this book, it should be easy), a list of state nicknames and abbreviations, and an answer key.

       What do a conceited crow, a lazy-but-ambitious dog, and a friendly dove have in common? They are all a part of this wonderful treasury of animal stories! These classic animal stories by Don Freeman (author of Corduroy and Beady Bear) have all found young hearts to entertain years ago, but are now contained together in a beautiful, classically-illustrated collection.

      The first story, Cyrano the Crow (1960), follows a boastful crow who is very proud of his ability to mimic other bird-calls—but when he is invited to appear on a television show, he finds that his arrogance has gotten the better of him. Flash the Dash (1973) is about a lazy dog who (at the demand of his mate) must go out and find steady employment. He works diligently at the postal service, but finds himself slipping back into his lethargic habits. The Turtle and the Dove (1964) tells the story of a weary dove and her new friend, a weather-beaten turtle, searching for a home. When a storm drives them apart, they must find their ways separately.

      Each story features an important moral lesson (the dangers of pride & sloth, and the value of friendship, respectively), compelling characters, humorous dialogue, and delightful illustrations.  Though outdated by modern standards, this classic treasury contains plenty of heart and soul to both entertain and impart important values upon children. 116 pp, SC.

    Once well-visited, well-liked, and well-off, Doctor Dolittle begins to lose patients as a result of his many pets. He does not really care, for he isn't worried about money and he likes animals better anyway. His parrot, Polynesia, who can speak English, teaches Dr. Dolittle to speak her language, and eventually he can communicate with all animals. He soon becomes an animal doctor instead, and he becomes quite rich again as word spreads of amazing success. Soon even wild animals are showing up at his door for help, and Dr. Dolittle never turns anyone away. When he acquires a crocodile, his business again comes to a screeching halt and his money dwindles to the point where the animals know he can not keep feeding them. Quite out of the blue, a sparrow comes with a message. There is a terrible sickness spreading among the monkeys in Africa. Will the doctor come to help? Though he has no money, Dr. Dolittle has such compassion for animals that this can't stop him from getting to Africa. He takes his favorite animals with him (as well as the crocodile, who wants to return to his homeland) and sets off on an extraordinary adventure. An amusing, entertaining story children will love to read themselves or have read to them. 156 pages.
