    Rather than being just another schoolbook, this handbook has a different feel to it. By this, I mean that instead of the pages seeming like assignments, the book is written for students who want to learn how to write - as though they picked up this book themselves because they were interested and are doing it on their own time because they enjoy creative writing. I find it very fresh and appealing. The authors believe that mastering a narrative first will lead to better short stories and poetry and help them to flow more naturally, so the first part of the book focuses on writing a narrative. This is broken up into 3 different chapters, offering students practice in beginning a narrative, developing a narrative, and lastly perfecting a narrative. Each of these chapters follows the same basic steps - pre-writing, exploring, and brainstorming; composing and creating a draft; and finally revising, using sensory and vivid words, working with combining sentences, transitions, beginnings and ends, peer editing (you can do this yourself if there aren't any other students to assist), writing the final draft and then proofreading again. The chapters on short stories and poems follow this same format. For the short story, you'll also work on characterization and the structure specific to a short story. In the poetry chapter, you'll practice with imagery, structure, rhythm, figurative language, ideas, poetic springboards, and other relevant elements of poetry. Throughout all of the chapters, examples from professional and student writers are given for students to analyze and understand what it is about them that is so effective and successful. (This includes excerpts from books by John Steinbeck (The Long Valley) and Harper Lee (To Kill a Mockingbird). Students are also given plenty of opportunities throughout the book for their own writing practice. After reading the example, they are encouraged to try their hand at capturing an audience with a great opener, vivid descriptions, smooth transitions, or whatever skill they are working with. They are also encouraged to keep a writing journal for daily use, and ideas for topics are given to help them get started. The very last chapter in this handbook provides ten guidelines for good writing and additional practice with sentence combining. This handbook could be a very beneficial, enjoyable tool for anyone who is interested in creative writing as a craft. - Melissa

    What do oobleck, invisible ink, and ice cream all have in common? Hmm… besides the fact that they have universal appeal with youngsters, they are also all examples of fun ways you can explore chemistry in the kitchen! This activity book features plenty of fun chemistry-based experiments that you can build… er, "mix" up in your kitchen to demonstrate chemistry concepts. Ten chapters cover atoms and molecules, mixtures, reactions, acids and bases, solids, liquids, gases, changing states of matter, polymers and water. Each chapter begins with some basic information about the topic, written in an informal, straightforward manner that even non-chemistry students can understand. The projects are found at the end of each short chapter. Most of them really CAN be done in your kitchen with basic household materials, except for the ever-popular "diet cola and mint explosion" experiment that you will probably want to perform outdoors. Although many of the experiments are tried-and-true "classics," such as making a baking-soda and vinegar volcano, pulling a soft-boiled egg into a jar opening smaller than the egg, and layering liquids of different densities, they are presented in an entertaining way mixed in with some high-interest stories about science in action. I definitely enjoyed the story of how scientists eventually tracked down the source of the neurotoxin that killed thousands of birds in 1961 and inspired Hitchcock's movie The Birds. Fascinating! 122 pgs, pb. – Jess

    Lois Lenski brings us the story of Mary Jemison, affectionately referred to as Molly. Molly spent the first 12 years of her life with her white family in Marsh Creek Hollow, New York. When the story begins, it is the night before Pa plans on sowing the corn. The family is seated around the dinner table when a neighbor comes to warn them of the danger of the Indians. He encourages the Jemison family to flee and avoid attack. Stubborn Pa does not listen, saying he intends to stay where he is and arise the next day to plant his corn. However, when the next day comes, Molly and her family are taken from their home and quickly led away by the Seneca. A short time into the journey, Molly is forced to go on while her family is left behind. Her mother tells her to never forget her family name, the language that they speak, and her faith. Molly does not find out that her family was killed until 2 years later. Her first year among the Seneca proves to be difficult and heartbreaking. She is renamed, "Corn Tassel" because of her beautiful yellow hair. Every day she mourns the loss of her family and goes into the woods to cry. There is no hope to escape, for she can't navigate the treacherous way home by herself. She learns the Indian ways and comes to love the Seneca. After two years, she is given the difficult decision to be sold to an Englishman and live with her kind again. She is torn because she has learned so much and has gained so much strength because of the Indians and she now loves them as family.

    There's a certain amount of controversy over the necessity or even wisdom of diagramming sentences. Many insist it just isn't necessary for developing a good working use of grammar. I look at it a little differently. Diagramming is a graphic organizer; a tool to help us understand the relationship of words in a sentence, and thus, to help us understand our language and improve our communication skills. That being the case, what better way to "kill two birds with one stone" than to use sentences from Scripture as diagramming practice and models? In the step-by-step analysis that diagramming requires, we can come to a much richer understanding of the meaning of Scripture. The language of the KJV (the version of the Bible used in this study) can be a bit daunting, which is why the author starts at the very beginning. She reviews each part of speech (i.e. nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, etc.) as well as the various parts of a sentence (subject, verbs, direct objects, etc.), teaching sentence patterns. She then builds precept upon precept, giving the student diagrammed examples, practice sentences, and ultimately tests. (Correct diagrams for all practice and test sentences are in the back of the book.) When the going gets tough and complicated (i.e. noun or adjective clauses), the author provides in-depth instruction as well as "helps" such as the "signal words" that introduce noun clauses. By the way, this is the point at which the impact of the Bible content is most realized. Sorting through a sentence in order to diagram it becomes a function of pondering God's Word. The book is a worktext with plenty of space and diagram frameworks provided. 329 pgs. pb ~ Janice
