    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

    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

    First published in 1967, this book by S.E. Hinton emerged as a popular book for older teenagers and young adults and has remained popular for 40 years. It tells the story of teenagers growing up in a dangerous city, with two warring groups of boys: the greasers and the Socs (richer society kids). Ponyboy, the main character, is a teenage greaser who lives with his older brothers after his parents' deaths. He's younger than the rest of the gang, but they accept and protect him. When a friend accidentally kills a Soc while protecting Ponyboy, the two try to outrun the revenge and violence that follows them. It's a heartbreaking but moving story about two different gangs and the pain they cause each other. Please note: violence, teenage smoking, and general "street life" themes are present throughout the story. 180 pgs, plus an an interview with the author and discussion questions, pb.

    If you want to know what World War II in Europe looked like from an infantryman's point of view, follow William F. (Mac) McMurdie from the induction process in Pasadena, CA, in April 1943 to his safe return home in February 1946. McMurdie didn't write the book until 1999, at age 74. But his mother had kept every letter that he sent home, and he had written notes about his experiences just after the war. Also, he realized that many of the men who served in WWII were beginning to die off. Many of the books on the subject were big-picture books, and friends encouraged him to write a book based on the experiences of the common soldier.

    This he does very well. It is no problem imagining yourself being in the same situations that McMurdie found himself in. He was a member of the 394th Regiment of the 99th Infantry Division, which, among other things, took part in the Battle of the Bulge. He covers all facets of his experience: the discomfort of being wet and cold from exposure to the rain and snow, hunger when no food was available for a couple of days, the disorientation of having shells falling around you, the anguish of seeing a close friend killed in battle, with the realization that it could just as easily have been him who died. McMurdie is a from a Christian family who was continually praying for his safety, and he has since served for 50 years in Christian ministry, so references to God's protection are common. So are excepts from his letters home, and he wrote home often, sometimes daily.

    It is apparent that McMurdie is thankful to God for bringing him through the war safely, and that he is loves his country and its founding principles. In this book he wants to pass these thoughts and feelings on to future generations. Pb, approx 200 pgs.

    Tired of exposing your children to evolutionary "facts" while studying the countries of our world? Well, no more! Master Books, in partnership with My Father's World, provides this quality resource designed to enhance our study of the world from a Christian perspective.

    Each of the seven continents is represented with highlights of more well-know nations. Information typically found in a quality atlas is included like landmarks, rivers, countries/capitals, flags, peoples, distinctive animals, biomes and the physical characteristic of the land. Unique to this atlas is the information on Christian history, people of faith and Christian traditions around the globe. For example, in the section on Saudia Arabia we read, "One of the first church buildings ever constructed has been found here by archaeologists. Built around the 4th century, it has come to be called the Jubail Church. Many congregations of Christians once thrived here until they were killed or driven out by the growth of Islam at the end of the first millennium…" The other distinctive feature you will appreciate is the lack of evolutionary timeline dating. Additional resources found in the back of the book include a glossary, definitions of government systems, holidays around the world, and detailed index. Vividly illustrated with photographs and full color maps, children will be eager to learn more about God's world. Oversized HC. 96 ps. ~Deanne

She was saved at birth because of her mother, but now her mother is gone. Will the powerful council spare her life a second time? And will she ever find out about the mysteries that surround her? I really didn't want to put this book down to write the description, it was so interesting and well-written.

By Lois Lowry, this is a companion to the Newberry Award Winner The Giver. ~ Mark
