    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."

    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

    Marco Polo was the most famous traveler of his time (late 1200s) and is still well-known for his many voyages.

There are stories about a holy shoemaker, a wicked caliph and three kings, and much more. This Penguin Classics edition was translated with an introduction by Ronald E. Latham. 384 pgs, pb.

    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

    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

    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

    Waldo sure does get around, doesn't he? This was the first Waldo book I have ever looked at. He is so hard to find!! The book is small format, so you may want to add a magnifying glass if you are giving this as a gift. Seriously! This collection has all 7 Waldo books in one volume. At the beginning and end of each adventure is a flap with a checklist of all you have to find: hundreds more things, actually! Not just Waldo! I was totally lost, but I can see where a kid would find this a fun challenge. Maybe my eyes are too old to find poor Waldo. The compact version makes a great book to keep in the car or a backpack, even a purse. It has a sturdy soft cover with an elastic place holder. Over 170 pages include enough to keep a kid looking for what's-his-name for a long time! Includes 6 postcards to color and mail! 6" x 7.5" ~ Sara

    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

    This is one of those perfect little games for a child to play in the car or while waiting for their lesson time with Mom or Dad. The seven colorful pieces look like hard candy stuck together in different configurations (not in a roll, side by side!) and have oval openings in the center in different orientations. The frame has little pegs that are placed at different angles, and the book of 60 puzzles of 5 levels of difficulty challenges you to fit combinations of pieces correctly within the frame. It is really fun! The frame has a clear lid that fits snugly, making it contained and portable. ~ Sara

    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.
