    Who couldn't use a few more of those "sticky" brain tricks to remember facts and rules? This neat little compendium, while seemingly written for the upper elementary-grade, holds a few gems everyone could appreciate. Each chapter features poems, rhymes, acronyms, pictures and more to help the reader remember English and grammar rules, the proper spelling of troublesome words, history and geography facts, calendar and time quirks, science lists and facts, important math concepts, general knowledge and music memory aids. Because a lot of mnemonics, acronyms and acrostics are used, often specific letters are printed in bold font to help them stand out. For example, to remember the difference between 'complement' and 'compliment,' remember that if you're talking about praise, "I like compliments." If you remember that the letters at the beginning of each of the Great Lakes spell "HOMES," you'll appreciate this way to remember all of the Central American countries: "My Big Gray Elephant Has No Critical Problems." Not only is this a great way to remember Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama, but this also helps you remember the order of the countries between the U.S. and South America (and this group also looks a bit like an elephant's head and trunk, as depicted with the memory trick). While there are some familiar rhymes and facts in here, there are plenty of lesser-known or new memory aids as well; you may just borrow this from the kids for your own use! 124 pgs, pb. – Jess

    If you have 3 minutes, you have time to play Mad Dash - a lively game that challenges players to travel across America in just 3 minutes (timer included!). Winner of a prestigious Parents' Choice Gold Award, the game is intense, addictive, and sharpens geographic skills in a hurry! 2-4 players each unfold a colorful map, then play begins. A sand timer allows for just three minutes to form your state cards into a trail of "neighbors" (states that border each other). The more difficult the route, the higher your score - and there's a big bonus if you can go coast-to-coast. But hurry - time is running out! Each game also comes with State Secrets - a strategy game in which players earn "tricks" by playing the cards of the largest or most populous states. But you must be able to answer questions about cities and natural features of the U.S.A. Here's what Parent's Choice had to say: "As the open-book exam of all time, the game gets you to say and say again the names of states while tracing borders to see if they indeed connect. Zooming fun to play!"

      If you want to add in some Greek myths without spending a ton of your school year on it, this book will do the trick. Students are introduced to many of the characters, places and stories and then given a crafty project to reinforce what they read. It is not time consuming and you could easily do the activities using household items (aluminum foil, poster board, even cookie dough!) The text is easy to read and does a nice job of making those difficult names memorable. Colorful cartoons add a graphic element to every page. You get a peek at history, geography, art and technology of the Ancient Greeks in 85pp! ~ Sara
