    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

    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

      This picture book introduces the story of Mattathias who led the Maccabean revolt against the rulers of Judea during the time between the writings of the Old and New Testaments (detailed in the 2 books of the Maccabees). In the revolt, the Temple and the materials needed to worship God were ruined, and yet. . .   (You’ll have to read to see what occurs.). This story relays the story of God’s provision and the background behind the modern day celebration of Hanukkah. Vibrant, acrylic paintings fill the pages. I love the illustrator’s use of perspective: sometimes you’re right “in the mix;” sometimes you’re far away. The book includes two wonderful additions: the illustrator’s Latke recipe and directions to play the Dreidel game. A succinct and beautifully explained story. 7 3/4" x 10”, 32 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

      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

       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.

    Beowulf is one of literature's legendary heroes, but students often find the original text hard to read. This masterfully retold version uses simpler prose to share the stories of Beowulf's epic battles with dragons and Grendel the ogre in a more readable way that is even great for reading aloud to younger kids. By H.E. Marshall, the story stays true to the original while making it more accessible to readers. 54 pgs, pb.
