      Not a traditional comic book, this Thinking Tree journal contains lots of cute and appealing illustrations to color and simple addition/subtraction problems to solve. This journal provides math practice with no instruction. Some pages have a simple grid with the assignment to design “something,” while others ask you to write a story based on a visual prompt. As a fun twist, students “solve math mysteries” instead of problems. Later in the book are several pages with 8 comic book style panels (on a 2 page spread). Two are filled in; you complete the rest. Black & white, 8x8.5”, 170 pp. ~ Sara

    Need more guidance to create a nature study notebook? Check out this new nature study journal from Funschooling Books. First, get a quick look at how to use the book along with a list of 10 things to think about when you go outside. Then you are whisked into activity pages. An assortment of independent activities is included: for example, drawing and coloring pages; brief research exercises; collecting items and creating nature crafts; spelling and vocabulary review, etc. To supplement these pages, I would recommend a Science Encyclopedia, the Handbook of Nature Study from Anna Comstock or accessing a library. The author does provide space to record additional reading/movie resources used with the journal. Created specifically for Dyslexic Children, and utilizing the Dyslexie Font created by Christian Boer. Children without dyslexia may also find them engaging. This is a fun supplement for your nature studies or to keep learning alive through the summer. Black & White graphics. SC.223 pgs. Non-reproducible. ~ Deanne

     Love the idea of unschooling, but struggle to find a balance between too much unproductive time and a strictly scheduled day? This resource may provide the perfect balance. Subtitled, “The Beginner’s Journal”, this animal and farm themed curriculum gently guides learning in several areas including reading, handwriting, logic, spelling, classic literature and music, mathematics including practice in addition, subtraction, and multiplication, creative writing, and more.

      Due to the open-ended nature of this course, you will notice repetition in many of the activity pages. For example, the backyard science/nature walk study pages, animals of the world, and reading time pages allow children to document varied observations and studies. Many struggling learners thrive on familiarity, which helps create a fun learning experience for struggling or younger students. Parents will need to assist their children in choosing topics of study, completion of some activities and securing additional, recommended resources.

      Recommended educational resources include a computer with your own Minecraft world, audio books, Story of the World for the Classical Child, Classical music CDs, a variety of educational videos and movies, and a math curriculum (Life of Fred or Math-U-See are suggested). Necessary school supplies include pencils, colored pencils, gel pens, origami paper, and a ruler. Assorted dyslexia games from the author’s Series A and B are included, and the Dyslexie font is utilized. Author states a child may work in this book up to 3 hours daily for 6 weeks, with 30 minutes of computer time 3 days per week, although flexibility allows you to fit to your family’s needs. Reproducible for children in your household. Black and white graphics. SC. 294 pgs. ~Deanne

      Targeting a slightly older crowd, this flexible curriculum resource may inspire delight-directed learning in your family. In this (mostly) self-study, children begin by choosing topics they wish to study and take steps to achieve their goals. Tips for wisely choosing resources while using these recommended resources: computer access and personal Minecraft world, audio books, Story of the World for the Classical Child, Classical music, Google Earth and parent-approved news sources, educational videos and movies, and a math curriculum (Life of Fred or Math U See suggested). Listed are also a few necessary supplies: pencils, colored pencils, gel pens, origami paper, and a ruler.

      The heart of this course is the gentle, guiding learning in an array of subject areas including reading, creative writing, spelling and vocabulary, classical literature and music, mathematics (open ended to use with your math curriculum), science, geography, current events and much more. Comparing this to the author’s Fun-Schooling Curriculum: Homeschooling with Minecraft, you will note overlapping activities but a different focus. The aforementioned course includes an animal and farm theme designed to engage younger learners, whereas the DIY Curriculum is written for a slightly older crowd and focuses on Geography and “world news today” events. Woven throughout the course are research projects to learn about mining in the real world, which provides a fascinating “rabbit trail” to a Minecraft study.

      If you are wondering which of the Thinking Tree Minecraft studies would best fit your child, younger children who thrive when working more directly with a parent, may find the Fun-Schooling Curriculum: Homeschooling with Minecraft (#068704) a better option. While the reading level recommended for this course is grade 2 and up, many of the research activities and world studies seem better fit for an older child. Other activities like the backyard science nature walk and study may work with all ages. Another consideration in selecting these activities is the student’s ability to concentrate for longer periods of time. While the author does not define computer time in this course, her general guidelines for daily study are 5 pages per day for 10 years and under and 10 pages per day for 10 years and up (2-4 hours per day). Repetition is also built into this curriculum guide allowing students to study various aspects of Minecraft in a similar fashion.

     Here is a unique blend of devotional, Bible reading plan and coloring book. Subtitled, Read the New Testament in 90 Days, you’ll find a daily reading plan for reading three chapters of the New Testament each day. Using this reading plan (or a plan of your choice), this devotional provides space to respond to your reading. For each of the 90 days, a two-page spread provides daily devotionals direction. On the left page, a key verse directs your thoughts. A half page is provided for recording a verse that “touched my heart.” On the right, record how God spoke: a promise, a warning, a command, an encouragement or wisdom to understand. Then, end the devotional time with a prayer, the day’s focus and plans. Each page has small, detailed drawings to color. As you color, meditate and pray on the day’s passage. Periodically, pages are placed to record four ways to bless, four ways to praise God, etc. A simple, beautiful way to be daily in the Word. 6.25x7.25”, 220 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth

    In this Thinking Tree math workbook, students write their own math problems and solve them by following a directed mystery. As they do, they draw pictures of the various items such as cars, frogs, a cake, cups, flowers and more. Each page has an activity. Here is an example: Addition - Pick 3 numbers and write them in 3 boxes labeled X, Y and Z. Read the mystery: Liam went puddle jumping. He jumped in X little puddles, Y ankle-deep puddles and Z giant puddles. How many puddles did Liam jump in? Write out the numbers as a math problem, then write out your answer as a sentence on the spaces provided. Below that are 2 boxes, one with lines and one with a grid to be used as you like. At the top are 2 boxes: one to color and one to draw your own path of puddles to jump. Other pages work on subtraction, division/fractions, and multiplication.

     Using the Dyslexie© font designed specifically for dyslexic readers, this book teaches 30 Bible verses using repeated activities. Each Old or New Testament verse is tied to a theme like hope, gossip, enemies and faith (6 pages per verse). First, students color a drawing of Bible Bunny. Then, parents read the included verse and students use a dot-to-dot activity to form 3 letters (progressing in alphabetical order). Next, students trace a repeated, lighter image of Bible Bunny. Then, they draw a picture of the verse. Finally, they write down the Bible verse and what they are thankful for. Reproducible for single family use. 6”x 8”, 186 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth

     This Thinking Tree notebook is really DIY: in content and in how you choose to complete it. There are 6 pages to accomplish the same tasks for each of the 50 states. Begin with coloring in the state on a US outline map with the capital, population and state motto. Then, fill in boxes with facts – current events, what to see, the flag, famous quote, monuments and popular foods. Next, identify the locations of the capital and other large cities, important landmarks, national parks, major highways and rivers, and anything else you find interesting. The following page documents historical events, famous people, draw the state seal and design a postage stamp. Then read a state-oriented book and summarize a scene and/or watch a movie and draw a scene (you’ll need to do your own research; no suggestions provided). The final page is titled, “What do you want to do in ___?” Note that these outside resources are required: your choice of various library books and documentaries/movies, Google Earth, Wikipedia, a U.S. atlas, a U.S. map, colored pencils or gel pens, black pens and #2 pencils. Pages are reproducible within your home/family. 8.5x11”, black & white, sc. ~ Sara

     This is a cute little Thinking Tree workbook for practicing letters. Pages have dotted lines to trace curves and shapes prior to tracing upper and lower case letters. The letters are rather small: 1 cm with a dotted half-line. While the book is black and white, there are loads of pretty illustrations to color. Coloring pages show something starting with a specific letter: girl for G, night for N, violin for V, etc. I found these illustrations pretty complicated for a child of 3 to 6 years. Reminiscent of adult coloring books, they will certainly practice young ones’ fine motor skills! The back of the book has several pages for creativity. There are boxes for creating comics and large lines to practice writing (2cm wide with dotted half line). 8x11”, 100pp, sc. ~ Sara

    Mark Kistler, cartoonist and author of the ever-popular Draw Squad and Drawing in 3-D with Mark Kistler, has taught children to draw using his methods for years. In this book, he takes his fun, yet start-with-the-basics approach and offers it up to adults who think they can't even draw a straight line! He promises that yes, anyone can learn to draw if they set aside twenty minutes a day for a month. If you're game, you can grab any old pencil and sketchbook and embark on an adventure that will take you from drawing spheres to tackling the human face! I like the balance of simple form and more advanced skills he meshes together here. Although you begin by drawing a circle, you immediately turn it into a three-dimensional sphere by adding shading. So you skip that whole "drawing a straight line" thing and head straight into the world of 3-D. Lesson drawing subjects progress in difficulty, beginning with the basics: spheres and cubes. From there you build onto the cubes and spheres that you know, creating koalas, roses, cylinders, houses, rippling flags, pyramids, mugs, trees, rooms and cities in one-point perspective, buildings in two-point perspective, and the human eye and face. Each lesson goes step-by-step, with Mark's illustrations showing the student exactly what to add each time and his written instructions are clear, easy-to-follow and entertaining. Many of the lessons are reminiscent of those in Draw Squad, but the pace is a bit quicker, and the subject matter slightly more sophisticated. Lessons often end with a "Bonus Challenge" where you can take your new skill to the next level, and several examples from Mark's other adult students offer inspiration as well. Drawing supplies are minimal, although Mark makes suggestions and recommendations in several lessons. With its 30-day commitment and incremental lessons, I would recommend this one as an introductory drawing course for your high-schoolers, especially if they have not had much drawing instruction in the past.

    While other scientists were catching and killing insects and classifying them based on physical characteristics, the 19th-century scientist and teacher Jean Henri Fabre was a firm believer in observing insects and nature in their natural habitats, spending just as much time watching their behavior as studying their anatomy. In this delightful book, he shares his observations and knowledge with children through a series of stories in which Uncle Paul describes the wonders of nature for his nieces and nephews, Claire, Emile, and Jules. With frequent questions and interjections from the children, Uncle Paul discusses livestock, trees, metals, fibers, paper, spiders, insects, weather, clouds, steam engines, astronomy, plants, mushrooms, shells, ocean creatures, and much more. If you enjoy the Christian Liberty Nature Readers or the Handbook of Nature Study, I think you'll enjoy this one as well. Originally published in 1917 and translated from French by Florence Bicknell, this reprint from Yesterday's Classics is 438 pgs, pb. - Jess

    Explore math concepts in a fun, unique way with the Tree Blocks Math Kit! This set contains 66 rustic blocks cut from tree limbs in sizes from 1 cm to 12 cm, a stand with cm ruler (hewn from wood) 2 number dice, and about 90 activity cards. A few other cards included in the set offer tips for use, a materials list, and NCTM standards supported by the activities in this set. There are three levels of activity cards level 1 is appropriate for PK/K, level 2 for 1st/2nd, and level 3 for 3rd/4th. Some activities require items found around your home, such as a plastic bucket, plastic cups, paper plates, colored sticky dots (like you would use for marking items in a garage sale), chart paper, bucket balance, etc. Adaptation of the activities can make them usable for multiple age groups with practice in the areas of measurement, data analysis & probability, geometry, algebra, and number & operations. Some activities include finding similar weights of the blocks, playing a matching game, measuring blocks, and find a missing number. Some activities may seem simplistic, but all work to instill math or pre-math concepts. Cut from tree limbs, these blocks aren't uniform in width, but the thickness or height is the unit of measure.

    So, enough about math - remember they're blocks too! Not only can you do the activities included and make up your own, but you can also build with them! Building helps develop fine motor skills, spatial awareness, and critical thinking. There are many reasons to buy blocks, and this unique set provides multiple opportunities for education and fun! ~ Donna

    This handy little workbook is for teachers and parents of kids who are reading the Magic Treehouse series. The guide specifically covers: Dinosaurs before Dark, the Knight at Dawn, Mummies in the Morning, Pirates Past Noon, Night of the Ninjas, Afternoon on the Amazon, Sunset of the Sabertooth, Midnight on the Moon, Dolphins at Daybreak, Ghost Town at Sundown, Lions at Lunchtime, Polar Bears Past Bedtime, Vacation Under the Volcano, Day of the Dragon King, Viking Ships at Sunrise, Hour of the Olympics, and Tonight on the Titanic.

    The entire book is reproducible and includes some great resources. You get summaries of each story to be used as student predicting activities or to pique their interest. You also get very helpful, open-ended discussion/quiz questions for each chapter of each book. These are built-in lesson plans! The answer key is here for you in case you need it. I like how the questions encourage further thought from the student, either as more study in an area (like science or geography) or as imaginary scenarios of future book chapters. Activity suggestion cards really push kids to think beyond the books. They are asked to compare and revise stories, requiring higher level thinking skills. Teacher evaluation sheets allow you to keep track of several students' reading progress, while students get their own reading checklist. Simple to use and thorough, I feel this is a "must have" to get the most out of the Magic Treehouse series. ~ Sara

    While it may sound ambitious to think your child can learn letter sounds, letter recognition, blending sounds, reading, writing, spelling and typing all in one program, this well-produced and engaging software may help them do just that. It is made up of two CD-ROMs: Read, Write & Type! and Spaceship Challenge. Read, Write & Type! is the core of the program and provides the instruction, while Spaceship Challenge provides assessment. There are 40 lessons in Read, Write & Type! with a new letter or sound introduced in each one until children have learned the basic 40 speech sounds in English. These sounds include 21 which are represented by one consonant, 5 represented by two consonants (sh, th, ch, wh, and ng), the short and long sounds of each vowel, and then "oo" as in both "look" and "tool," "ou" as in "loud," and "aw" as in "hawk." The lessons are grouped into levels where four letters or sounds are learned at each level. If you follow the plan provided, children will complete one level in Read, Write & Type! before they switch to Spaceship Challenge for testing on what they've learned (starting after Level 2). The lessons are based around games, so learning is a fun and interactive experience. When you begin the program, the user can view the introduction to learn the back-story and be introduced to the characters (or storytellers). Most of the time the screen you will see includes a keyboard with keys divided under right and left "houses" and two little hands in the corners. The player also sees that each of the letters (and corresponding storyteller) "live" in a key shown on the animated keyboard. Above the keyboard, the scene changes as the user plays different games. In the introduction Vexor, a nasty virus, comes to town and steals all the letters from the animated keyboard. It's up to the player and the two talking hands to work together to win all of the letters back. As the player begins each round, they see which letter Vexor will offer to give back, pending the player's performance on the games. The player is instructed on how to type that letter on the keyboard, and the sound of the letter is pronounced (letters found on the left-hand side of the keyboard within easy reach are the first to be introduced). The player then plays a series of games with Vexor to try and win the letter. These are based heavily on sound and ask the child to associate the sound with a picture and determine if the sound is made when saying the name of the object in the picture. Different games test the player's ability to identify the sound at the beginning, in the middle, or at the end of words. Players are constantly encouraged to say the name of the pictures or the sounds of the letters out loud as they type to engage their eyes, ears, mouths and fingers to learn the letters and sounds. After they play the letter/sound games with Vexor, they must help the letter's storyteller get to the Story Tree by typing the letters they hear pronounced by an animated mouth. At the Story Tree, the mouth again pronounces the sounds of letters, and later words and simple sentences, as they type to complete the story. The games are different in Spaceship Challenge, although the emphasis is still on recognizing sounds and matching to letters. In the Sound Game, a picture shows one of three different monitors, and the player will identify the sound at the beginning, in the middle, or at the end of the word pictured. The Reading Game tests reading comprehension by asking the player to match the sentence or word to one of the pictures shown below. In the Spelling Game, a picture is shown and the word is pronounced, and the player is asked to type in the word correctly. If the player completes these tasks at or above the threshold for passing, they move on to the next level in Read, Write & Type! Additional fun reinforcement activities include the Power Fountain game which reinforces typing accuracy and speed, and a simulated e-mail area, where children can type and "send" messages (a selection of stored responses are "sent" in return). The spiral-bound lesson book also includes plenty of introductory material for parents, including an overview of the program, a scope and sequence, suggestions for students of different ages/abilities, explanations of the games in the software, and more (please note that the book does reference some additional pieces like posters and keyboard covers that have not been included with the program for quite some time). All in all, this program has some good things going for it. The software is well-produced, not cheesy, and the sounds that are pronounced are clear and easy to understand. Because the emphasis is on learning the sounds, not just letter recognition (players are even asked to type "fffff," not "F"), this aids them in learning to sound out and recognize words later on. The games are fun to play and motivational, and the range of supplementary materials included and available (some on their website) round out the program to include non-computer time. Additionally, children will get plenty of typing practice with no pressure for speed, which gives them a leg up on children who don't learn to type until they are older. While I wouldn't use this in place of a phonics program, it is a meaty supplement that may be best used with a "no-frills" instruction book like How to Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons, Reading Made Easy or The Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading and/or with phonics workbooks (to reinforce writing skills which are not used as much in the software). This will provide practice they'll want to do! Please note that this is the 2000 edition of the program on CD-ROM; the newest version is only available from Talking Fingers as a download.System requirements: Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/Vista (but not Windows 7); Macintosh 7.5-9.2 or OS X Classic. - Jess

    As the mom of a budding zoologist, I quickly found that most of the books we read covered the same information…oh, there may have been variations in content or images, but the animal species were nearly identical. I felt like we were always studying the same things. If you ever felt the same way with your little zoologist, I think you will be pleased with this excellent resource. From a Christian perspective, this book introduces children to some of God's unusual animal and plant creations found within nature.

    Written and photographed by a father and son missionary team, the chapters are beautifully photographed and well-written. As a visual learner, I really appreciate how each of the topical chapters is color-coded, meaning that individual life forms studied are presented on uniquely colored pages. The information is presented in a story format and ranges from 3-7 pages per specimen. You and your children will be captivated reading about the Northern Potoo, Jabiru storks, black howler monkeys, monkey-faced orchids (yes - there really is such a flower), the poison dart frog, the Indian piper, the cacao tree, weasel and much more. Scripture references, observations about the marvelous design of our God and scientific names offer a refreshing look our Father's world. Magnificently illustrated with full color photographs, the entire family will be eager to learn more about God's creation. HC. 149 pgs. ~Deanne

    This small booklet is filled with over 150 journal prompts that are Christian and homeschool oriented. Written by Cyndy Regeling (with the help of her three sons), the prompts are meant for boys, but many could be used by girls as well (besides prompts like "If there was an award for "Brother of the Year," what should the qualifications be? Would you qualify? Why or why not?" and "Can you picture yourself as a husband one day? Describe what you would do to be a good husband."). From September through June, there are four prompts for each week. Prompts are fairly simple and should lead to about 15 minutes of writing. Prompts cover school, hobby, family, spiritual, and other fun topics and prompt for different types of writing (poems, description, narrative, etc.). Some are pure fun ("Imagine the fun it would be to drive a dog sled team. Create an adventurous tale with you as the sled driver."), while some require serious thinking (Missionaries courageously tell others about Jesus. How can you be a missionary in your area? What would you tell a friend who asked you to explain why Jesus is so important to you?"). This is a simple booklet of journal prompts that is very well done. ~ Rachel

    These stems are sparkly and will add pizzazz to holiday craft projects. Twist together to make a beautiful wreath, add some red beads for holly berries and some leaves for that festive touch. Glue to paper & make Christmas scenes or make ornaments to hang on your tree. There are 100 of these beautiful 12" stems per package so get those thinking caps on and get creating! ~ Phyllis
