    This combined volume of all four Time Traveler books focuses on everyday life in various periods in history. Like the Book of World History it contains interesting text and captivating illustrations (in typical Usborne style!).

    So, how is it different? The World History book goes through history, looking at different civilizations during each period. The Omnibus focuses in on specific time periods in history and examines in detail the lives of fictional characters who could have lived during that time. My (then) 12 year old daughter recommended reading through the World History volume first, then the Time Traveler's Omnibus to "zoom in" on certain historical periods. She says this book will "give you a better understanding and appreciation of how it was to live during that time - it's the next best thing to being there."

    If you've used one of Amy Pak's Time Travelers CD-ROMs, you'll have an idea of what you can expect in this art appreciation Activity Pak. If not, well, then you're just in for a treat! This CD-ROM contains all the files and instructions you need to create an art appreciation lapbook, file folder game, and a sketchbook. The CD is very well-organized and easy to navigate. You'll start by creating the individual booklets and paper organizers that make up the lapbook, including the booklet of art media, a timeline of art styles and movements, organizing a whole "exhibition" of booklets for 33 famous artists, creating a very cute "paint box vocabulary" booklet defining artistic terms, and painting your own masterpieces in the styles of ten artists. When you've completed everything, the assembly instructions show you how to put it all together in a very attractive, information-packed lapbook. You'll also enjoy creating your own file folder game, "Art Gallery." Files for the board, instructions, pieces and cards are all provided, so you can print, cut, assemble and play! You will probably want to print the art reproduction cards used in the game on a color printer. Files are also included to print and assemble a 5 ½" x 8 ½" sketchbook for sketching or journaling with artist quotes on every page. One thing I love about Amy Pak's products is that they are always well-designed and attractive, and this one is no exception – based on the files on the CD, your finished projects will be beautiful! Win/Mac compatible, requires Adobe reader, a free download. – Jess

    Travel back in time, back to the beginning when the world was born, back to when dinosaurs roamed the earth. This children's book written by Ken Ham transports your young ones back in time by putting them in the role of time travelers to visit the story of man. They will don their time-travel gear and stop in at the story of creation, visit Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden, observe dinosaurs in ancient times, go forward to the flood, and witness the effects of sin in the world. KJV Bible references are included to offer support for the information being presented. Throughout their travels they will encounter all types of dinosaurs and learn about them from a Biblical perspective. Many dinosaurs are illustrated with an explanation of their name – Camarasaurus (chambered reptile), Seismosaurus (earthquake reptile), and Oviraptor (egg thief) to name just a few. This cutely illustrated, 64-page, hardcover book is great for dinosaur lovers without the 'millions of years' perspective. ~ Donna

    This book is now in 2nd ed. and chapters include What is Astronomy, The Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, The Moon, Mars, Space Rocks, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Kuiper Belt and the Dwarf Planets, and Stars, Galaxies, and Space Travel. The last few chapters are where you see a change in the chapter sequence from the first edition – chapters 11 and through 14. There are still interesting activities and projects including a model solar system made of balloons, pinhole eclipse viewing box, making a compass, understanding the moon phases, and creating an astrometer. Children are sure to remember the information they are learning between hearing the text, performing the hands-on activities, and completing the journal pages.

    The text is formatted differently from first edition – it begins with an explanation of the text, activities, course website, notebooking journals, and science kit in clear bold print. Each lesson is full of new photography and illustrations and interspersed with scripture. Blue “Think about this” and “Wisdom from Above” boxes give special attention to the Creator, and orange questions are scattered throughout the lessons for students to think about and explain. Activities for each lesson include instructions and illustrations for completion. Every chapter is rounded out with “What do you Remember?” where students recall information from the lesson. The appendices include a lesson-by-lesson supply list for hands-on activities and an answer key for “What do you Remember?” questions.

    Notebooking journals are now in full color and color-coordinated. A suggested schedule is in the front of each notebooking journal, but you decide how many times a week to do your curriculum. The schedule lists daily assignments (71 total), and the lists have items listed in 3 different colors – green for textbook reading assignments, blue for notebook assignments, and brown for science kit activities. Pages in the notebooking journal are formatted for students to answer questions and complete activities. A review of the inner planets now follows lesson 8, review of the outer planets follows lesson 12, and a final review follows lesson 14. “Take it Further” pages are now drawing, making lists of books you’ve read, movies you’ve watched, additional experiments you may have completed, and making scrapbooking pages. Copywork is still included and coloring pages in the junior notebooking journals. There are answer keys in the back for vocabulary crossword puzzles and final review questions.

    Because of the content changes, first edition products won’t work with the 2nd edition. Experiments are different (four of them are unchanged), so lab supplies do vary as well.

    As a child, the travel map we used had a picture atlas on the exterior. I spent so much time pouring over that cover that I still remember, as a result, which states produce oil. Here’s an opportunity to provide that experience for your elementary children. The actual atlas is in the first 24 pages. The remaining pages are filled with over 350 stickers to place in the appropriate atlas location. Children can easily find the correct location by finding the “shadowed” picture of the sticker. But it’s not just pictures here! Each map has information and details regarding animals, culture and geographical locations in small, clear print. Maps include one of the world; Western and Eastern Europe; North and South Africa; Western and Eastern Asia; North and Central America; South America; Australasia and Oceania; the Antarctic and Antarctica. End the book with a brief world quiz to test your new knowledge. Once done, you’ll have a picture atlas to continually use! Just wonderful! 9 3/8” x 12”, 34 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    I have very fond memories of playing this computer game as a child, so I was excited to take a look at this new and updated edition. I wasn't disappointed, as this edition is even more fun and exciting than the original. It's also a ton more educational than it used to be as well. For those who aren't familiar, this is a game where players fill a wagon with people and supplies and then head West on the historic Oregon Trail. Like real people who traveled the trail, you run into problems like food and water shortages, broken wagon parts, flooded rivers, illness and injuries, stolen supplies, bad weather, getting lost, and more. The game is more realistic than is used to be, as players get more choices on supplies to bring and even different wagon styles. Besides being able to hunt like the original game (with better graphics), players can also fish and forage for food, which is a lot of fun. In this edition, players can select various characters, and they'll share historic facts in a storytelling manner, like you're chatting with pioneers as they share their hopes, fears, and adventures. Another great addition is a storytelling time with Captain Jed Freedman. These are basically mini-movies of Captain Jed sharing true stories around the campfire at night. With all these things combined, I was impressed with the amount of history lessons contained in the game. They break up the daily traveling and trials in a realistic manner as players cross plains, ford rivers, and climb mountains. Students can keep track of their adventures in a trip diary, which can even be printed out at the end of the trip (hopefully when the entire wagon has reached Oregon and not when the last member has died from dysentery). More educational, multicultural, and realistic than past versions, this is the perfect supplement for history studies on this period. But honestly, your children will probably want to play just for the fun of it. A staple of many childhoods, this game has only gotten better with time.

    In this charming story, we travel along to Blueberry Hill to pick sun-ripened blueberries. Sal's mother wants to take the berries home to can them so the family may enjoy them during the winter months. Sal brings along her small tin pail to help, however, she ends up eating more than she picks! On the other side of the hill, Little Bear and his mother are eating blueberries to grow big and fat for the long, cold winter. Both Sal and Little Bear sit down to enjoy the scrumptious berries, and when they get up to find their mothers, they each mistake the other's mother for their own! The soft humor and delightful ending is perfect for any young child, and the detailed blue and white illustrations perfectly accent the story. Pb.

    Grandma Dowdel is not your average grandmother. She's a large, intimidating woman who wears men's clothes, isn't afraid to use her shotgun, and is as wily as a snake. So it's with some trepidation that Joey and his younger sister Mary Alice travel to southern Illinois every August to visit her. Grandma's sleepy little town is shaken up by that very character, but the kids can never quite figure out ahead of time what she may be up to. As they are dragged along on all sorts of adventures, they gain admiration for their grandma and a sense of adventure. You will too, as you get an "inside peek" at adventures from hosting a wake for the (ambiguously) dead "Shotgun Cheatham," snagging a free biplane ride at the county fair, and selling "genuine" Lincoln items to save a neighbor's house from being torn down. Recommended for ages 8+, I bet the whole family will enjoy this hilarious, fast-paced book, especially as a read-aloud!

    Roaming around the country to various homeschooling conventions, I've spent my share of time on historic Route 66. However, I've never seen the theme of Route 66 used in such a fun and productive way. Oftentimes Sunday School and Bible classes get in a rut of telling the same basic stories and doing the same activities over and over again. There's no danger of that when using this fun theme, because lessons and activities are provided for every book in the Bible. Students learn about each book (author, setting, etc.), as well as important stories and lessons within them. The book seems intended to be used in a Sunday school setting, with lessons divided into three 12-week units, but it could easily be used for a Bible class with just a student or two, or each activity page could also stand alone and be used to supplement other materials. Each lesson begins with a travel guide for teachers, which includes an overview of the featured book, key verses and stories in the featured book, warm-up questions, and ideas and suggestions to help with lesson planning. The lessons can require fairly small amounts of prep work, or you can go all out with the Route 66 theme; the material is pretty flexible. Three reproducible activity pages are included in each lesson, based on that particular lesson's book of the Bible. Activities can be completed with pencil or markers and include things like crosswords, word searches, hidden pictures, fill in the blanks, short-answer questions, and more. Fuel Up pages have short answer questions challenging students to read specific verses in the Bible to find the answers. Review pages (or Remember Where We've Been? sections) are provided at the end of each unit, which offer cumulative review questions for students to answer alone or in groups. The Route 66 theme helps students feel like they're really going on an adventure as they work their way through the 66 books of the Bible. There are even instructions and reproducible pages for making a Souvenir Scrapbook, which is a creative and fun way to keep track of what they learn. If you're looking for a fun way to educate your child or Sunday School group on each book of the Bible as well as the author, era, purpose, key verse, and the main characters and stories of each book, you should definitely take a look at this book. With all of the different components, your students are sure to get a solid overview of the Bible. By Christian Ditchfield, 192 pgs, pb. ~Rachel

    Grab your favorite book and gather around for lots of laughs! This game contains 100 prompt cards (each containing 2 prompts) and a 60-second timer. That’s it! Each player supplies a book, and it can be any type: cookbook, novel, textbook, travel guide, etc. In each round, one player is designated the “Picker” and they begin by picking a prompt card and choosing one of the two prompts. Examples of prompts are “The meaning of life is…” or “Text on a warning label” or “A good warning to children.” Players all race to find a word, phrase, sentence, or several sentences in their book that they think will best satisfy the prompt. Once the first player finds their match, the timer is turned and all other players have just 60 seconds to pick something. Once the time is complete, players take turns reading aloud their selection and the “Picker” chooses their favorite answer. The “Picker” role rotates, and sometimes the books do as well! The first player to earn a predetermined number of cards wins the game. 3-8 players; game time is approximately 20 minutes. ~ Megan

    One of the best puzzle games ever made now for two players! If you're not excited about that sentence, it's time to get excited! Rush Hour Shift converts the endlessly-puzzling, mind-boggling fun of Rush Hour into a head-to-head strategy game of offense, defense, wits, and a whole lot of tension. The board is made of three shifting grids and created according to a game-setup of your choice from the booklet. Trucks and obstacle cars are set up symmetrically, with player's respective "hero cars" beginning at each end of the board. Four cards are then distributed. "Move" cards allow players to move any combination of vehicles on the board a certain number of spaces, "Shift" cards can be used to slide one of the three grids, and "Move and Shift" cards allow a player to do both! The goal is simply to get your car off the other end of the board before your opponent doesbut expect to be blocked at every turn as the ever-shifting board can be used to help one player and hinder the other. Even if it is not possible to get your car further with a particular play, you just may be able to wreck your opponent's strategy!

    My young children enjoyed this reader when we studied the gold rush and Western expansion. Follow a family as they travel from Missouri to California to search for what their hearts desire: gold. Or could it be more? We also enjoyed the time-period music with lyrics sprinkled throughout the book, such as, "There's Gold in California" and "I'll Make you a Map." With the additional black and white illustrations, this is a fine book by prolific writer Clyde Robert Bulla. 5" x 7", 100 pp, pb. ~ Ruth
