    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

    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

    This book literally blazes a trail through geography - all you have to do is follow it! Cindy Wiggers has done a terrific job of combining questions, mapping, and other activities into a fun, easy-to-teach approach to geography. Intended as a thirty-six week program, the first twenty-seven of these include a variety of activities. The first weeks encompass the world as a whole; then you focus on different regions continent by continent. Within each week there are several different methods of learning. One of these, Geography Trails, provides questions four days a week that will improve the student's ability to use maps to locate countries, capitals, bodies of water, and landforms, teach them valuable geography terms and learn many geography facts. Different questions are given for grades 2-4, 5-7, and 8-10, so that you can use this book for children at different levels at the same time. The questions are based on the content of three recommended atlases (one for each age group) which are listed in the key resources below. Additional geography activities for every week are in the form of "Points of Interest," where you can take time to learn more extensively. Activities to choose from include mapping, researching, suggestions for art projects, and weekly projects to compile into your very own geography notebook. Then it's Geography through Literature for the last nine weeks as you read through Around the World in 80 Days. Questions for each chapter are provided, as are ideas for additional research and spelling and vocabulary words. Happy trails!

    Please note that that this course provides a framework for studying world geography, and relies on additional resources for reference, maps, and activities. Required resources include: Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne (if you are planning on completing the literature portion of the study) and one or more of the recommended atlases (depending on the age of the student(s). Three other "key" recommended resources you will rely heavily on for many of the activities include the Ultimate Geography and Timeline Guide, Uncle Josh's Map Book (in book form, or CD-ROM), and Visual Manna's Teaching Geography Through Art (for the art in geography lessons). Although you could make the study work without these, they are often referred to in the lessons, and the program would work much more easily with them. These and other recommended resources are listed below. An almanac is also recommended, in case you don't have one on hand, we recommend the World Alamanac & Book of Facts. A Geographical Terms chart is also recommended; we are unable to offer this specific one, but it is available from Geography Matters. ~ Stephanie

    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.

    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.

    Memorizing new words and their meanings can be pretty hard or just downright boring! But this innovative book may have your children begging for more! When I (Jessica) reviewed this entertaining book, I could barely put it down long enough to write this review! The words are presented in such a fun way, they're sure to stick with you for a long time. First, each word is written in BIG, BOLD letters with a pronunciation and the definition. Then, under that, the word is changed to what it "sounds" like. Then the best part! There is a short paragraph, a setting that you picture in your own mind, sometimes using the presented word, but centered around what it sounds like. Funny, and interesting, this is the part that really assures retention. Here's an example:

    OBSCURE (obb-SKYOOR) adj.- hazy, unfamiliar, difficult to understand. Sounds like: Hobb's cure.

    Picture in your mind a patient coming out of Dr. Hobb's office. The patient's wife questions him about the examination.

    Wife: What did Dr. Hobb say? Patient: I'm not sure. Wife: Well did he say its curable? Patient: I think so, but maybe not. He was pretty vague. Wife: What's the prescription for? Patient: I have no idea. He told me but I didn't understand. Wife: This is Dr. Hobb's cure? Send yourpatient away in a fog? Patient: It might be. How would I tell?

    See, isn't that fun? Adding to the mental "picture" there are humorous black and white cartoon drawings for about 100 of the words. Each entry ends with an example sentence using the featured word. The book ends with a list of an additional 135 words with definitions and advice on avoiding common "traps" on the SAT. Learn as many new words a day as you want -and keep them with you....for life! 120 pages, pb.

    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

    Quintus is sixteen years old and proud of his Roman citizenship. With his father dead and his mother dying, his uncle steps in to find him an apprenticeship to a tentmaker outside of the city. He soon finds himself under the care of Aquilla and Priscilla in a world so different from what he is use to. The people he works with speak of love for neighbors, love for God, and love for a man who died for them thirty years ago. Through Quintus' eyes, you will learn a great deal about the historical events that took place in the summer of 64 A.D., as Christians become the central target for great persecution under the commands of Emperor Nero. This is a gripping story that depicts many of the horrors that Christians had to endure, but in a tamed down way that saves adolescent readers from too many gory details. A great fictional story that shows the difficulties that were placed upon early believers and how God worked it all to His Glory. 135 pgs, pb. – elise

    This interesting book will take you through a history you have probably never heard before. We all know that the Gospel spread west from Israel, limited only by the boundaries of the Roman Empire. The Roman Empire never really stretched any further east than the land of Palestine, yet there appears to be evidence of Christian communities, Christian kings, Christian generals, and a general Christian influence as far east as Japan before the close of the eighth century AD. This is a detailed history about which the author says, "The difficulty is to find a place in all Asia where Eastern Christians or missionaries did not go." They certainly

    appear to have been widespread at one time -and this book reveals the rise and fall of a strong Christian presence in the East. 116 pgs, pb. ~ Zach
