    Enthusiastic users of Susan Wise Bauer’s Story of the World will be excited to rediscover the modern era, “From Victoria’s Empire to the End of the USSR.” Formatted similarly to the previous volumes in the series, the Modern Age text contains 42 chapters highlighting some of the major people, places and events in world history, from 1850 to 2000. Some highlights include: the Crimean war, the American Civil War, the Second Reich, the Japan’s Meiji restoration, the Suez canal, the Boers, Western expansion in the U.S., the Boxer Rebellion in China, the Mexican Revolution, the rise of Joseph Stalin, Hitler’s rise to power, the Holocaust, the Atom bomb, the partitioning of Palestine, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, Chernobyl, the end of Communism, and much more. As usual, students will get a “balanced” view of world history, with events from nearly every country in the world - not just Europe and the U.S. Each “story” from history is told in an exciting, readable way, which is sure to hold students’ attention - especially as they cover history in the not-too-distant past! The activity book is once again substantial and invaluable, containing both teacher and student portions. The parent’s pages feature review questions with answers, guidelines for an outlining exercise for the student, suggested further reading and literature tie-ins, map activities, and hands-on projects related to the topics covered in the text. As usual, the projects are very creative and I can definitely see kids getting excited about doing them - one of the activities for Chapter One definitely caught my eye! In this activity, kids will get to time themselves and compare “loading” two different “rifles” with cardboard tubes, homemade “cartridges,” and a few other kitchen materials! The parent’s portion for each chapter also features cross-references on the same topic to other resources, including the Kingfisher History Encyclopedia, the Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World, the Usborne Book of World History, the Usborne History of the 20th Century, and the Usborne Internet-Linked Encyclopedia. The student’s portion of the activity guide includes partial outlines for each chapter for them to finish, outline maps for map activities, worksheet activities, and timeline figures including world flags from each country’s independence or establishment. The tests and answers for this volume are bound into a paperback, 3-hole punched volume, and include tests and answers for each chapter. Once again, Susan Wise Bauer has put together a very exciting and multi-faceted history study that everyone will love!

    The text is now available in either paperback, hardcover, or spiral binding, for your convenience. The Activity Book is a bound paperback. - Jess

"Name 9 countries that start with the letter 'P'"). Players advance 1 space for each question they answer correctly.

    "Won't you join up, Comrades?" Kantorek, a schoolteacher, addresses his class of young men. Those days seem long ago to Paul Bäumer and his classmates, all of whom enlisted in the German army of World War I. Although they are hardly twenty years of age, in a matter of time the fighting, death, and poor living conditions around them have aged them well beyond their years. Paul remains close to his classmates and they find a few other good friends in the army. Time after time, their unit is called up to the front, and they are forced to deal with the horrors of bombardments on their trenches, the shells, the gas, and the death of so many comrades. This book is a very vivid account of a war where young men of the same generation but different uniforms were forced to grow up early in the war. - Melissa

    Just imagine! Not only one well-loved children's book highlighted for every day of the year, but also some literary and general interest happenings for that day in history. Each highlighted book a brief description that gives information about the book and interweaves it in some way with that particular calendar day. For instance, on November 13, 1926, a short story appeared in an Australian newspaper that recounted the saga of an "underneath nurse" and her charges Jane, Michael, Barbara and John. As perhaps you've guessed, that story grew into the beloved series by P.L. Travers – Mary Poppins and, of course, that's the book for November 13th. Other historic notes include the Montgomery Bus Boycott ending in 1956, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial being dedicated in 1982 and the birthdate of Robert Louis Stevenson. All on one page! Multiply that by 365 days and you have a wonderful collection of books to enjoy reading with your children and a wealth of information. Enjoy! 390 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
