    When Usborne does a doodle book, you know it will be inviting. These vibrant, colorful tear-off pages draw (pun intended) your child into whatever world has been half-created. Colorful circles attached to ovals can become dogs, lions, or hippos. Draw another knight like the illustration. Add decorations to the pattern. Doodle more sharks and waves. The breadth and originality of the suggestions is impressive. There are about a hundred double-sided pages or, in other words, hours of creative doodling.

    Early in our nation's history, the primary reason for education was to allow each person to read the Bible for himself. In the same spirit comes this complete first grade curriculum. While it incorporates history, science, art, and math, the heart of the program is phonics-based reading instruction with Biblical emphasis. This program was revised in 2013 and features a new title, changes to the teacher's manual and new package resources.

    Phonics instruction begins with a quick review of letter names and sounds using full-color alphabet flash cards, then follows with in-depth, step-by-step teaching of all phonics constructs. Phonics lesson plans teach new skills while reviewing previously-learned skills. By Lesson 31, students are able to read Bible stories in a special beginning Bible Reader. The reader uses a thematic approach to teach Bible history in chronological order from Genesis to Revelation. Students are expected to retell the Bible story, and then create a keepsake Bible notebook in which they summarize and illustrate Bible stories. (Linda used a similar approach years ago to teach Bible to our older children, and they enjoyed it very much.) Weekly memory verses selected from Proverbs help to develop character and handwriting at the same time. Hands-on projects are designed to help children understand the world of the Bible. These include creating timelines using the included figures, making Bible times costumes, and celebrating a Sabbath meal. Science focuses on the wonders of God's creation, and uses three Usborne books (Things Outdoors, Science with Water, and Science with Plants), which are included with the curriculum. Math incorporates hands-on activities, math manipulatives and a math workbook (Complete Book of Math Gr. 1-2). If you prefer a more serious approach to math (as we do), you can add another math program.

    The Deluxe Package includes the Teacher's Manual; student book; student worksheets; a Bible Notebook; Bible Reader; Complete Book of Math Gr. 1-2; My Big Book of 5-Minute Devotions; Unifix Cubes; a small geared clock; addition and subtraction flashcards; wood pattern blocks; Pattern Animals; Things Outdoors; Science with Water; Science with Plants; Honey for a Child's Heart; Peter and the Wolf CD; Enjoying Art Together; and Drawing with Children. ~ Bob

    Rather than list this in the drawing section as a drawing book, we are listing it here with the other Usborne Art Ideas books, as it offers the same great range of creative ideas utilizing a number of different mediums – pencil, ink, pastels, paints, etc. While the emphasis is certainly on drawing, the "ideas" include dozens of fun "out of the box" projects that may require/encourage serious drawing skills, a loose doodle style of drawing, or a mix of both. It features the same high quality, colorful pages as the other books in the series and is filled with so many engaging activities that I would be surprised if you skipped any of them! Slightly oversized, hc. 96 pgs. – Melissa

    A simple and cute drawing book that uses basic shapes such as triangles, ovals, and squares to create varied subjects. Simple step-by-step instructions guide children as they fill the pages with anything from spaceships to bunny rabbits to fairies. More of an activity book than something you would use as art curriculum, this book might serve well at restaurants, on car trips or on a rainy day. Each two-page spread is a different setting, beckoning for different creatures or objects. For example, one page is a town at night and the artist is prompted to draw alley cats atop the walls. The drawing instructions usually have 4-6 steps, starting with a subject's most basic shape and gradually adding to it. Softcover, 95 pages.

     This introductory reference guide will appeal to your pictorial learner. First, you’ll get a good beginning grammar overview (parts of speech--including noun and verb phrases, active/passive voice, clauses, conjunctions, direct speech, and confusing words). Parts of speech are identified with text, arrows and colors, though inconsistently applied (Nouns are not always green, for example). Explanations are brief and accented with graphs and cartoon drawings. The second section covers punctuation (periods, commas, question and quotation marks, apostrophes, and those funky and elusive parentheses, dashes, hyphens and ellipses). Finally, get a thumbnail introduction to style (basic genres, sentence- and paragraph level improvements). The book includes a glossary, quiz, and index. Also, access to Quicklinks provides grammar, punctuation and spelling games, quizzes and puzzles. An attention-grabbing way to introduce or remind students of grammar skills. 136 pgs, reinforced sc. ~ Ruth

    This book covers it all, from the dawn of history right up to the year 2000, for all the major civilizations, all the rulers, and all the events in world history. Pages are filled with clear, interesting accounts of historical events, realistic reconstructions of scenes, and tons of incredible photographs. More than 100 charts and maps are included, allowing you to see exactly where events took place. Besides being an intriguing book to read, this is also your link to world history on the web. After reading about a subject, go online; every link leads you to a website where you can read additional information, watch video clips, play games, see photos, and use other unique website features to experience "virtually" all of world history. I was never much for history, but I wish I had this book when I was younger; these websites look really intriguing. For a study of the ancient world you can get virtual tours of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, a virtual walking tour of Rome and Athens, learn to speak Ancient Greek, write in hieroglyphics, take interactive tours of museums, explore the Valley of Kings in Egypt and learn about the pharaohs buried there and their tombs through photos and panoramic movies, view profiles of famous Romans and Greeks, explore a clickable Roman marketplace, and loads more. Some sights are interactive, where you can, for example, reenact the Battle of Hastings, and some are treasure troves of information, maps, timelines, and diagrams.

    Note: The first 100 or so pages of the book discuss the "Prehistoric World" (starting 4,550 million years ago with the Big Bang and proceeding to 12,000 years ago when the last ice age came to an end). This section outlines evolution and likely contains objectionable material. However, the rest of the sections (Ancient World, Medieval World, Last 500 Years) are more factual and make up for the first. A colorful, captivating book. 416 pages. Stephanie

    This book could make a wonderful art program for younger students, incorporating both art appreciation and projects in a beautiful, easy to use format. The book features 22 impressive works of art from around the world and from a variety of periods. Each work is shown on a spread of pages along with a few short, interesting paragraphs of information about the work itself, the techniques used, and the artist who created it. Then you flip the page to see how you can imitate that work and style using simple materials and methods. For example, the first work highlighted is Van Gogh's "The Starry Night." After looking at the painting and reading about it, you turn to the next page, which has step-by-step directions to help you make your own swirly landscape using thick paints and a plastic fork. In six steps you go from drawing a simple landscape sketch, adding color, and using the fork to manipulate the paint into swirly patterns like those found in Van Gogh's painting. The end products are very attractive, and completing the projects will help students remember the distinctive styles of the artists they've studied. The projects pages are very colorful and offer beautiful illustrations of the finished projects to give students a visual aid. Throughout the 22 works/projects, students will be introduced to 3-D art, paintings, abstract art, prints, collages, Chinese brush painting, and other styles/types of art for a well-rounded but fun early art education.

    Learn a lot about U.S. geography by taking a trip across the U.S.A. A big, colorful 11" x 17" map accompanies this engaging book, giving students plenty of practice using a map as they "travel" all over the country. Fifty pages of questions and activities have students practice using direction, position, distance, and comparison, analyze information, and draw conclusions. Besides learning basic map skills, your children will learn a great deal about the individual states including locations, abbreviations, nicknames, industry, and more. Even math and reading skills are put to good use as children compute mileage and distance, navigate time zones, and read charts. At the end of the book is a blank map of the U.S. for children to write the names of the states in (after finishing this book, it should be easy), a list of state nicknames and abbreviations, and an answer key.

       I really like Usborne books, but this is one is a favorite. Intended for a younger audience, this 8-page, large format (9.5 x 11.75 inches) book introduces children to the world of space – the sun, planets, super stars, galaxies, space exploration, space travel, and the constellations of the night sky. All of the information is printed in small snippets, so as not to be overwhelming, and on heavier cardstock pages – and four of the pages even fold out for a grander view. Very sturdy for younger hands and the book presents just facts. There is no theory or conjecture about how it all came to be, just good information to introduce little ones to the topic of space. ~ Donna
