    This combined volume of all four Time Traveler books focuses on everyday life in various periods in history. Like the Book of World History it contains interesting text and captivating illustrations (in typical Usborne style!).

    So, how is it different? The World History book goes through history, looking at different civilizations during each period. The Omnibus focuses in on specific time periods in history and examines in detail the lives of fictional characters who could have lived during that time. My (then) 12 year old daughter recommended reading through the World History volume first, then the Time Traveler's Omnibus to "zoom in" on certain historical periods. She says this book will "give you a better understanding and appreciation of how it was to live during that time - it's the next best thing to being there."

    Challenge yourself with this book of Animal Mazes, Monster Mazes, and Treasure Mazes. Each of the three sections feature 12-14 colorful mazes, often on a two-page spread, other times with just one maze per page. Each maze comes with a little storyline about the main characters, Cat and Mouse, and you must help them find their way wherever they are going or help them solve different puzzles. Their adventure takes them to many different scenes and lots of different challenges. Will you help them get all the way from the beginning to the end of the book (and their big adventure)? Answers are included at the end of each section. ~ Megan

    This inventive, colorful book is divided in two sections: story writing and instruction on writing fiction (cleverly called the Story Writing Toolkit). The writer is guided to write 20 different stories on the well-designed pages. Story-specific directions, tips, and such things as interesting vocabulary are cleverly included in the margins. Story types vary, too; write a comic strip, a story about time travel or a tale about animal adventures - or finish one the book has started for you. The Tool Kit (15 pages at the back) includes tips and instructions on plot and character development, as well as creating engaging titles, settings and descriptions. The book could serve as a portfolio of your child’s creative writing, maybe even a great keepsake. A great way to get your student’s creative juices flowing. Spiral bound, but exterior binding covers this for added durability. 8” x 9.75”, 95 pp, hc. ~ Ruth

    Looking for a bunch of activities to keep your kids quiet and happy for extended periods of time? The activities themselves aren't really travel-themed, but they certainly would keep kids entertained during long rides or flights. The book includes pictures to color, mazes, dot-to-dots, hidden-picture drawings, color-by-number scenes, riddles to solve, and more. Cut back on all the "Are we there yet?" questions with the mountain of activities in this book. By Rand McNally, 256 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Amazing is a good adjective for this book. Incredible is another. Awesome works pretty well, too. Let me just say that I am long past third grade, but I could spend a few more hours lifting every flap, pulling every tab, reading every speech bubble, and turning pages to find another pop-up mountain or volcano. This book is so much fun to look through; every page is chock full of information presented in an inspiring, unique, and entertaining way. Covered is our place in space, sunshine, continents and oceans, rivers and mountains, countries, Europe, natural disasters, world distances and traveling times, and inhabitants. Another cool feature is the pop-up globe, made from stiff card, which is flat in the book but pops into a more-or-less round globe - it's really quite something! It is attached to the book by an elastic cord, so it won't get lost either. Learning geography can be a lot of fun, especially when kids are enjoying themselves - and they really can't do anything but that when they open this hardcover book. ~ Zach

    Usborne lift-the-flap books are treasures of information, color and activity; this one is no exception.

    A gem of information, this book will help your child get “behind the scenes” with art . Multiple flaps on each page show famous paintings and sculptures. Art pieces (mostly Western) from the 1600’s to modern age are labeled by name, artist and date. Readers will investigate how art is made and how artists use color, line, movement and symbols to create their desired effects. The thick, sturdy design allows those flaps to be lifted many, many times without tearing. Includes a one-page glossary and internet links. 9” x 11”, 12 pp, hc. ~ Ruth

    Learn how to tell time with colorful, reusable activities! This dry-erase workbook has sturdy laminated pages, a wipe clean pen, and a fun monster theme. Each page features practice activities to help kids master the skills of time-telling. Many of the exercises involve tracing or writing specific times upon analog clock faces in response to prompts. Students are also asked to look at clocks, then write out the time in words or numbers. (These activities tend to be fill-in-the-blank for the first half of the book.). Digital clocks are covered as well. Brief instructional material is provided to introduce a concept, but most of the workbook consists solely of practice exercises. The colorful, friendly monsters will hold kids' interests as they complete activities such as recording the times Spud the monster performs daily activities (ie. eating, shopping, bedtime) or writing departure times at the train station. A "Your day" section invites kids to write down the times they do certain tasks during the day, too. 22 pgs. ~ Lisa

    When you hear the words "book report," what comes to mind? Boring… mundane… busy work? Well, what if I told you that book reports could be fun, creative, and engaging? This workbook by Teacher Created Resources is full of ideas for book reports and literary projects that your children will never call "boring." These reports go beyond the typical one page essays and challenge your children to not only read the book and apply what they read, but to also think creatively and use their imagination. The best part is the fact that the work is done for you (the teacher), as all you need to do is find the title you would like your child to read, select a project that best goes along with the title, and then photocopy the worksheets that contain the instructions and writing space needed to complete the project. This workbook also makes finding good books to read easier as there are Newbery Award Winners, California Young Reader Medal Winners, and Caldecott Medal Winners listed on the last few pages! As I was skimming through this workbook I found all sorts of fun projects that I would have loved to do. Idea #21 suggests your child read a book about a famous historical character. Then they create a History Interview Chart where they list things that were different or unique about the person or character's life in comparison to today. Next they interview an adult member of your family, such as a grandparent, and report on the similar things they recorded in regards to the character of the book they read. Idea #14 prompts your child to write a commercial regarding a book they just read to try and get others to read it. Other projects have children designing compare and contrast charts, timelines, puzzles, trading cards, puppets, masks, and other fun creations. Several projects also include your child playacting, interviewing, packing their bag for faraway travel, filling a time capsule, and writing their own version of the story. Most of the projects stand well on their own in regards to educational content, but some of the ideas are more entertaining than educational, so you may want to tweak them a bit by adding a writing assignment or combining it with another project. The possibilities are endless! Who knew book reports could be so fun? 112 pgs, pb. – elise

    This 400-page paperback text from Usborne is a fantastic reference guide that provides an extensive overview of world geography. First, you get a general overview of planet Earth. Next, more detailed sections cover the geographical phenomena of earthquakes, volcanoes, oceans, weather, climate, and world ecosystems. The people and cultures of the world (North America, South America, Australasia and Oceania, Asia, Europe, and Africa) are then extensively discussed, followed by an Atlas of the World portion of the book comprised of various maps (60 total) of all seven continents. The text concludes with a Fact File section that provides a medley of information on topics including but not limited to geographers and scientists, world records, time zones, constellations, and types of government.

    To take advantage of the interactive component of this book, visit the hundreds of websites recommended throughout the text. These sites were chosen to provide further information about people and places of the world and are reviewed and updated on a regular basis to ensure subject appropriateness and working order. Although it is "internet-linked," the Encyclopedia of World Geography is a complete book that can be used on its own. ~ Enh

    Enhance your studies of North American exploration. This coloring book follows the explorers to the New World starting with the Vikings and chronologically "discovering" the land (roughly the period between 1000 A.D. and 1827) up to Jedediah Smith's travel to California. Informative text accompanies the illustrations, describing the depicted explorers and historical significance of their explorations. This would be wonderful to color as you study the various time periods and events illustrated - even if it takes you several years to complete!

    My eight-year-old's first reaction to this book was an emphatic "Cool!" Brilliant color pictures and graphics welcome you to the world of the microscopic. What would a DNA strand look like if magnified 7 million times? How about greatly magnified parts of plants, insects, and the human body? Find out here. Each section shows amazing color pictures of dramatically magnified objects and organisms. For example, the Plant and Fungi chapter shows a greatly enlarged picture of water plants called desmids and diatoms. Instructions are given for collecting pond or lake water so that you can view the microscopic life in a drop of water. Although much of the book depicts and describes the microscopic world, the latter part of the book is devoted to how microscopes work, from a standard lens microscope to the electron- scanning microscope. Pointers are given for buying a microscope and using advanced techniques for preparing various types of slides and mounts. A wonderful resource for any student interested in the "hidden" world around us. - Jerry

Each of the twelve, four-page comic books covers the important people, documents, or events of that time, ending with five comprehension questions. The front of the book holds background notes, teaching ideas, and a web link. Note that the euphemism "darn" is used at least once. 64 pgs., pb. ~ Steph
