    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."

    Subtitled "40 Time-Traveling, World-Exploring, History-Making Activities for Kids," this book contains an assortment of activities to take kids back in time, allowing them to recreate the discoveries of the past, or use what was "new technology" back then. The activities are arranged chronologically through time, with each activity given an introduction, list of (common) materials, a step-by-step procedure, and a fairly lengthy explanation. Additional ideas for extending your investigation through each period of history are also offered, as well as other timely, relevant facts for each activity. After reading about a Mesopotamian soap recipe, kids gather a few materials to see for themselves exactly how soap works. We've all heard of Archimedes' great discovery made in his bathtub, now kids can recreate and experiment with this concept - no bath necessary. And although readers may be surprised to know that the ancient Egyptians made and used glue, they can whip up some of their own to use. The equipment used is nothing fancy (chances are if the ancient Egyptians owned it, so do we!), and the simple procedures are easy enough for most kids to work through on their own (although adult help is noted in several activities). While the results of these experiments won't necessarily come as a surprise, participants are able to put themselves in the place of that time period or civilization, and imagine that what they're accomplishing was at one time regarded as a very sophisticated method! Please note that the book is from a secular publisher, most noticeable in the dating terminology used (B.C.E./C.E.) and in the first section of the book on early humans. However, we feel that the value of the book's activities overall outweighs these easy-to-omit features. - Jess

    Subtitled An Advanced Geometry Adventure for Grades 4-5, this well-designed set of unit studies does a great job of combining an engaging literary storyline with a discovery-learning approach to geometry concepts. These unit studies were created with the gifted student in mind. They will definitely appeal to the student who loves to read, enjoys art, and prefers hands-on activities that allow you to make your own deductions.

    The journey begins when inquisitive twins Harriet and Thomas are suddenly transported from present day New York City to Florence, Italy circa 1456. In Florence, they meet a young artist named Leonardo, who is on the verge of losing his apprenticeship if he can't figure out how to draw people that look like real people as soon as possible. Together, the twins and Leonardo begin an exploration of proportion and ratio.

    This 139-page book contains three units, which should be completed sequentially as the units build on one another, both mathematically and with the progression of Harriet and Thomas's storyline. Each unit includes a teacher's guide as well as reproducible student lessons. An answer key is also provided.

    Unit details: Unit 1 – Leonardo da Vinci and Ratio (7 lessons plus 1 optional extension covering ratio, measuring body parts, averages, drawing proportions, and building to scale), Unit 2 – M.C. Escher, Symmetry, and Angles (8 lessons plus 1 optional group project covering symmetry, planes, polygons, and tessellations), and Unit 3 – The Egyptians and Area (6 lessons plus 1 extension covering how to make a perfect square, finding north using angles, area of a rectangle or triangle, and surface area). ~ Anh

    Tabitha is the daughter of a shepherd who is taking his family to his birthplace. Tabitha is a curious and courageous young girl who often finds it difficult to be docile and "know her place" as girls were expected to do in Biblical times. As Tabitha travels with her family, she watches as the Romans take her father prisoner, spends time with Zechariah and Elizabeth, helps Mary and Joseph just before Christ's birth, and ends her travels at the stable in Bethlehem. Each chapter begins with instructions to light a specific candle(s) on your Advent Wreath, followed by the text of the story. The end of each chapter contains a devotional with a Bible verse and discussion questions that pertain to themes or events from the chapter. A total of twenty-eight devotions are included. By Arnold Ytreeide. 159 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Can you fit all of the animal pairs inside the ark? This magnetic puzzle may be cute, but it's harder than it looks. To play a puzzle, set up the magnetic board with the animal piece(s) shown in the setup chart. The goal is to fit the rest of the animals on the board; the catch is that each animal pair must have at least one side touching each other, and you can't turn any pieces! This is a great game for road trips or other times when children need to keep themselves occupied for a while. It's contained in a spiral-bound hardcover that snaps closed to keep everything together. –Chad

    I have such good memories of family vacations we took when I was younger. But I have to wonder if I am remembering the details from my point of view or from the pictures I saw later on. How cool it would be to see what I was actually thinking at that time! This particular travel journal has prompts on every page. This journal captures the entire trip starting with the "pre-trip" pages that include prompts on packing, what you know about where you are going, and finding your destination on a map. During-the-trip pages capture every moment from what you did and saw during the travel time; the weather, food and other cultural questions; and then day-to-day pages to record what you did, what you saw and what/where you ate each day. In the back are pages to keep in touch with new friends, write about your souvenirs, and space to reflect on your trip such as what you found the best/worst about the trip. With about 90 day-to-day pages, it would be perfect for a long summer vacation journal. The light blue/teal pages are great for a girl or boy. What a fun keepsake! pb, 126pp, 6x8". ~ Sara
