    They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and this book proves that statement true time and time again. Readers will get to know Abraham Lincoln as never before as they read through this delightful work. The text is informative, yet readable and presented chronologically through Lincoln's life, beginning with the log cabin days he is famous for, through his political ambition and career, election and presidency, the trials of the Civil War, and finally his assassination. Photographs, illustrations, documents, and political cartoons from the days of his presidency are generously distributed throughout the text, giving readers the opportunity to see what they are reading about, allowing for greater understanding of the times and this great president. ~ Megan

    A true story of a gunned-down U.S. Air Force pilot and his struggle to survive 6 days with only grass and ants to eat. Captain Scott O'Grady of the U.S. Air Force started his morning like every other morning. Little did he know that later that day he would be shot down in his F-16 and have to parachute five miles down to hostile Bosnian soil. While the enemy is hunting for him and the U.S. Air Force thinks he died in the crash, Captain Scott O'Grady, all alone and over 10,000 miles away from home, knelt in prayer and stuck to his training. This book offers breathtaking excitement and a stunning example of one's limits and true faith in God. 134 pgs, pb. - Jon

    A lone little burro roams his home in the Grand Canyon, but his affinity for company, often in the form of people with flapjacks, gets him mixed up in more adventures than he ever counted on. After his friend dies, Brighty (named after the Bright Angel Creek) is kind of on his own. He does have one other friend that he summers with and who is willing to help out – as long as nobody tries to make him do anything he doesn't want to do! Brighty ends up in scrapes with cougars and mountain lions, meets President Teddy Roosevelt, and even helps with the search for the murderer of his friend. Through it all his huge heart, antics, and unique character will keep readers smiling. ~ Megan

      Studying history is part of the core curriculum all kids learn. Your family history is another way to make your children connect with the past – their past. This is easier than ever to do with online resources, but talking with older generations is much more fun and interesting for all parties. Once you have the names of great-great-great-great-great Grandpa Joe and Grandma June, preserve your research on a beautiful document. This large family tree comes rolled up and measures 16” x 20” with a large antique-looking tree in the middle and lots of room to write family members’ names. Beginning with a married couple, there is space for 5 children, 5 siblings of the Mom and Dad, and 7 generations back of grandparents. The paper itself is crinkly it’s made to look and feel like real parchment. You can write on it with any type of pen/ink. It certainly has the look of the Declaration of Independence; your finished product will certainly be frame-worthy as well! What a great project to do together! Use your best handwriting and practice your spelling ahead of time, you won’t want to use white out on this elegant document. ~Sara

    As you might have already guessed from the evocative title, this is a vocabulary book centered on Greek and Latin root words. There are 36 units that can be used one per week or in concentration. It's a fun, interactive type of book and a good precursor to the more studious Vocabulary from Classical Roots series. Master word lists, along with their roots, are provided up front as a handy reference and summary. It includes several ideas for activities for each study. Every unit contains three reproducible pages for the student, introducing ten vocabulary words and tracing their definitions back to a common meaning. The pages are graphically stimulating and motivating to complete, rather than a dry, fill-in-the-blank presentation. I especially like the little symbol on the upper right-hand corner of each student page which gives a visual reminder of the root from which all these words spring. As an example, the first root studied is the Latin "foli," meaning "leaf." After students match the definitions to words printed on an assortment of leaf shapes, they make up sentences for each and, optionally, with string, tape, and a twig, make a foli mobile. The second student page for this unit is entitled "Comic Re-Leaf." It has a circle of cartoon visuals depicting the meaning of each vocabulary word with little pictures, characters, and word bubbles. In the center are the ten vocabulary words to write on each. For reinforcement, students then turn their paper over and write the definitions for the ten words from memory. The last page "Turn Over a New Leaf" presents news headlines incorporating the vocabulary words. Students have to write the first sentence of each news story, defining the vocabulary words. For example, the first sentence of a story for the headline "Unicorn Uncovers Unusual Unifoliate Under Uncle's Umbrella" might read, "Yesterday, a young unicorn playing in the park moved the umbrella of a family member only to find a rare species of plant having only one leaf." After this, the student is told to choose one of the headlines and illustrate it. This approach to learning vocabulary has something to offer for all learning styles, including the hands-on learner.

    A step up from Whatever Happened to Penny Candy in both subject matter and grade level, this deals with inflation, paper money, gold supply and interest rates.

This book would be most helpful for current or future entrepreneurs, but would also be helpful for an employee making career decisions. Cathy Duffy (CHECM - Jr/Sr High) says that after reading this book, "you will know more about the way business really works than many business college graduates."

    While other scientists were catching and killing insects and classifying them based on physical characteristics, the 19th-century scientist and teacher Jean Henri Fabre was a firm believer in observing insects and nature in their natural habitats, spending just as much time watching their behavior as studying their anatomy. In this delightful book, he shares his observations and knowledge with children through a series of stories in which Uncle Paul describes the wonders of nature for his nieces and nephews, Claire, Emile, and Jules. With frequent questions and interjections from the children, Uncle Paul discusses livestock, trees, metals, fibers, paper, spiders, insects, weather, clouds, steam engines, astronomy, plants, mushrooms, shells, ocean creatures, and much more. If you enjoy the Christian Liberty Nature Readers or the Handbook of Nature Study, I think you'll enjoy this one as well. Originally published in 1917 and translated from French by Florence Bicknell, this reprint from Yesterday's Classics is 438 pgs, pb. - Jess

    This book closely follows the same format as Richard Maybury's WWI book, but focuses on events and ideas of the Second World War. 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. He links the poor way America entered and handled the second world war with subsequent wars such as the Korean and Vietnam Wars, the Iraq-Kuwait War, and even the Wars on Terrorism that began September 11, 2001. ~ Rachel S.

    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.

    People throughout history have been fascinated by the moon. As the closest heavenly body to earth, it provides light at night, an intriguing surface, and fascinating phase changes. Even though we can't pull the moon down to take a closer look at it, you can experience the comfort and mystery of the moon in your own room! This creative night light is designed to look like the face of the moon, and can be hung on any vertical surface. Its surface is textured to resemble the moon, and is translucent enough that the lights behind it filter through to "glow" when it is switched on. And that's not all! Simply switch it on to experience the full moon's glow. Or use the manual phase button or automatic phase button to take the moon through its phases, from a sliver to a full moon, and back again. It's a perfect night light, for it automatically lights up in a darkened room, and shuts off after 30 minutes if there is no manual interaction. An on/off switch is found on the moon itself, and the handy fist-sized remote control contains the manual phase, automatic phase, and on/off buttons. A perfect complement to a room already filled with glow-in-the dark stars or a perfect night light for the child who just needs a little light to put them to sleep. Moon requires 4 'AA' batteries, and remote requires 2 'AAA' batteries; however, no batteries are included. Jess
