Through a series of letters, Uncle Eric explains how thoughts and actions during the war set the stage for the world we live in today.

    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.

    Good question! Richard Maybury, author of Whatever Happened to Penny Candy, expresses in a lucid manner the workings of our legal system. Written as a series of letters to a nephew from Uncle Eric, topics include a discussion of the origins of government, principles on which our government is based, history of law, the difference between scientific law (how our government was intended) and political law (what we've ended up with), components of common law, reasons for government, and unsolved legal problems. This widely-endorsed book is also sprinkled with quotations from famous political teachers. An excellent introduction to law and justice! Revised edition.

Whether a particular fact is important, unimportant, likely true or likely false depends on our model.

    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.

The literature unit in this book focuses on the Lewis and Clark expedition, using the book The Captain's Dog, by Roland Smith.

Other resources are also recommended to help enhance the study; these are listed below for your convenience. In this edition, all students use the Desk Atlas of the United States. A Geographical Terms Chart is recommended with these and all Trail Guide studies. We do not offer the chart that is recommended; however, it is available through Geography Matters. This Trail Guide was revised and updated in 2015 and includes a new QuickStart Section and new assignments throughout.

    Required for Apologia’s 2nd edition Human Body course, this anatomy coloring book provides an innovative way to reinforce human anatomy for any study of the human body. Although designed for high school, middle school students may also benefit from this one. Each spread offers a clear and precise illustration with concise textual information as well as space for labeling the illustration. Topics included are anatomical position and terms, planes of the body, cells/tissues, skeletal system, joints, nervous system, sense organs, endocrine system, cardiovascular system, lymphatic system, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system, male and female reproductive systems and fetal development. A neat feature about this coloring book is the inclusion of 96 tear-out muscle flashcards for memorization. On the flip side, a drawback is that the publisher elected to place the answers to the diagrams at the bottom of the same page - although my children may be the only ones who would be tempted to take the easy way out when labeling the diagrams! I would consider covering up the answers to encourage them to research the correct answers. 335 pages plus flashcards, pb. ~ Deanne
