    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

    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. Even math and reading skills are put to good use as children compute mileage and distance, navigate time zones, and read charts. 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.

      Subtitled, Celebrating Great Women of the Bible, this is a Bible story book with a unique focus: encouraging brave living. Each Bible story shows how God uses ordinary girls to do amazing things for Him just by following His lead! To relay the stories, you are introduced to a diverse group of five girls: Hope, Glory, Honor, Gracie, and Faith, who form a youth group called Brave Girls. They work together to know God more and honor Him by telling others about Him. Each girl tells a different Bible story (18 stories from the Old Testament and 13 from the New), connects it a bit with her own life, and then ends each with a brief devotion-like summary and a one-sentence prayer. The predominant focus is the Bible story, but full-color, water-color type illustrations fill the accompanying page. Note an interesting layout choice: occasionally, you must turn the book to read a few stories that are set in landscape mode. An additional section adds a brief quiz to see which brave girl you are most like. This seems a bit of a fluffy touch, but I think the goal is to help girls identify the talents with which they can glorify God. The ending contains a 5-page collection of “Brave” verses that serve for Scripture memory, and a letter from the Brave Girls. While sharing crucial Bible truths, I think this devotional might also encourage girls to live in faith and fellowship. 7/25” x 9.25”, 208 pp, hc. ~ Ruth
