    p> Uncle Eric (Richard Maybury) explains that we all formulate models to evaluate information. Models are, in essence, our basic belief systems. Whether a particular fact is important, unimportant, likely true or likely false depends on our model. This book is the foundation for Whatever Happened to Penny Candy and Whatever Happened to Justice?

    Subtitled "What would Thomas Jefferson think of this?" Provides guidelines for selecting books consistent with the principles of America's founding fathers. Richard Maybury, known as "Uncle Eric" in Whatever Happened to Penny Candy and Whatever Happened to Justice, hits the mark again! This book helps home educators and older students make informed choices about which books to select by showing us how to identify the philosophical slant of the author. Cathy Duffy calls it "a perfect follow-up for [the other two books]. More than a 'book guide,' it teaches basic principles of economics and government in bite-size nuggets - with examples." Includes a recommended list of approved authors and three articles that tell the "other side" of American history - the one not generally told in school textbooks. A wonderful resource for homeschoolers or any lover of American history. Though the book contains several reading recommendations for children as young as ten, the bulk of the reading is recommended for the middle-school to high-school level. 127 pgs.

    In this book, Richard Maybury presents an idea-based explanation of the First World War. He explains how the explosion of the battleship Maine in 1898 was the beginning of a chain reaction that continues even today. Like other Maybury books, this one is written as a series of letters from Uncle Eric to his nephew. He focuses on the ideas and events that led to the war, events during the war, and how things led into WWII. Using stories and examples, he gives interesting and clear explanations on topics that can be difficult to understand. Timelines, maps, and quotes add to the book. Index and glossary included. ~ Rachel S.
