    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.

    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.

     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

    Some children may have a difficult time applying themselves to books that cover technical programming concepts (such as looping, variables, etc.) or even books that lead directly into those ideas. The focus of this book is instead on short, unstructured lessons exclusively covering Scratch or Scratch games. Instead of having concept-based lessons to follow, as in How to Code in 10 Easy Lessons, kids will work on creating short, simple games using Scratch. These short lessons start out simple (such as making characters move around the screen) and end with making pattern games and virtual pets. Once kids understand how to make basic games, they move on to four fully-fledged game projects. Throughout these lessons the emphasis is placed on the game they are creating, not on programming concepts. Picture this as coming at programming from another angle; instead of learning about what a variable is and then putting a variable named score in the game, they are shown how to keep a score within their game and then learn why a score is a variable and what that entails. To help kids out even more, all instructions and concepts come with full-color illustrations (and cute cartoon characters) which show exactly how to do the projects in a fun, cute way. If your child is interested in programming, but may be more excited about making games as a focus, this is for them. 94 pages. Spiral-bound.

    Uses the programming language Scratch as a base. Focuses on the visual elements of programming - kids begin by making things move around the screen, drawing & painting characters, and creating a virtual pet. Ends with 4 games projects.

    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.

    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.

    A visual introduction to the past, this colorfully illustrated Usborne book shows children differences in the way 11 ordinary places have changed over time. Each two-page spread shows a scene from a familiar place such as a store, a street, or the kitchen. The left-hand view shows the way things appeared about a hundred years ago, while the opposite scene shows what each place looks like today. They'll learn that in the past, cooking had to be done by burning wood in a stove, shopping was done by having the clerk package and weigh items for you, and often several children all slept together in one big bed! Designed to spark discussion and get young children thinking about the differences between yesterday and today, they are sure to learn some surprising things about the past - and maybe even appreciate more the conveniences of today! - Jess

    A simple and charming story written and illustrated by Tomie dePaola. Charlie is a shepherd with a cozy house, a flock of sheep and a big hat. What does not have is a cloak to keep him warm. Charlie then shears his sheep, washes the wool, cards it, spins it into yarn, collects berries to dye it, weaves it into cloth then sews the cloth into a cloak. There is some good vocabulary in here that children may not know. The drawings are simple and cleverly done as Charlie’s sheep attempt to “help” him make his cloak. Good for your emerging readers. 7.5” x 8.5”, 32 pp, pb. ~ Sara

    This devotional book for young kids was written by Susan and Richie Hunt and it will help teach the basic truths of the Christian faith to children. The book is broken into 36 sections that you can use for daily or weekly devotions. Each section starts with about five questions for children to answer that have to do with the devotion (for example, "Who made you?", "What else did God make?" and "Why are you to glorify God?"). The book recommends you have children memorize the answers. Then there is a story about two siblings, Cassie and Caleb, and their friends Angus and Daniel. Cassie, Caleb, and Angus all go to Sunday school, but Daniel is new to the neighborhood and not familiar with Christianity. As the easy-to-read story progresses, readers will learn along with Cassie and Caleb that God's ways are best, and even kids can live for His glory. They discover along with Daniel what it means to be a Christian. After each section of the story, there are "Let's Talk" and "Let's Pray" sections. The talking sections provide a few discussion questions so kids can review what happened in the story and draw out any Biblical concepts. The praying section includes a Bible verse and a prayer prompt. The readable story, helpful discussion questions, and catechisms (questions with answers to memorize) make this an ideal resource for introducing Biblical concepts to your children. Repeatedly reading the stories will reinforce the application of Biblical principles, and answering the questions will ensure they know some of the big truths about Christianity. 160 pgs, hc. ~ Rachel
