    Perhaps this text was part of my elementary education. The timing fits – and it would explain why the events lovingly memorialized in this publication are still firmly planted in my memory. First published in 1955 and now republished by Beautiful Feet, utilizing the historical accuracy and storytelling ability of Earl Schenck Miers and the amazing illustrations of James Daugherty (full-color, inked drawings), this book takes the reader through tales of adventure, heroism, and patriotism. From Leif's Viking boat explorations of the northeastern coastline to the atom bomb's close to the second World War, you will read about everything in between – explorers, founders, soldiers, adventurers, settlers, inventors, statesmen, educators, and many more – in the fifty stories that make up this 315 pg, paperback book. A worthy addition to your home library or ideal for any literature-based history course or unit study, the author himself sums up its scope: "…everywhere signs of the greatness of God. It is indeed the one truth in which we all believe. It is indeed our richest heritage." ~ Janice

    What do you do if you can't fix a broken doughnut making machine with tons of batter inside? What do you do after there are more than a thousand doughnuts and they just keep coming?

If you're Homer Price, then your uncle has left you alone in the middle of this crisis and you have to find a way out of it! But that won't be a problem, because he's handled a skunk, four bank robbers, a 6' ball of string, and helped 100 families find their homes in the new subdivision where all 100 houses look exactly alike. - Melissa

    In this charming story, we travel along to Blueberry Hill to pick sun-ripened blueberries. Sal's mother wants to take the berries home to can them so the family may enjoy them during the winter months. Sal brings along her small tin pail to help, however, she ends up eating more than she picks! On the other side of the hill, Little Bear and his mother are eating blueberries to grow big and fat for the long, cold winter.

    With a similar mix of lessons, tests, practice material, and games as Typing Instructor, this version is more accessible to younger kids and offers a fun, motivating and effective way to learn typing skills. There are 160 touch-typing lessons which cover all the basic keys (letters, numbers, symbols) on either a standard or a split keyboard (except for the 10-key number pad). There are ten different typing plans, each geared to a different age group. Regardless of the plan they are following, each student learns the keyboard by taking a tour of "Typer Island" and visiting five different lands as they journey to the Castle. As students journey through Old West, On the Water, In the Air, Over the Edge, and Under the Sea, they'll learn new keys and complete exciting challenges (usually timed) like typing to shoot words out of the sky, racing a Viking ship by typing words as quickly as possible, and typing words printed on sharks before they eat you! The activities build upon each other so students can't move on until their skills are ready. The changes in scenery add a lot of variety to the lessons, but you can still rely on helpful features including visual instruction with the 3-D guide hands and keyboard. Accuracy and speed (WPM) are also tracked throughout, with students getting instant feedback on their performance, and earning rewards as well.

    Of course, the arcade-like games will be the most fun to the beginning typist! The further students advance in the program, the more games will be available to them. Once they make it through all five lands, students capture the Castle, which opens the Lost City, a new addition to the program that provides two new games. While capturing the Castle and exploring the Lost City are the ultimate goals of the game, students earn treasures and points all through the program, which keeps them motivated and entertained. Students can also visit Explorer Isle at any point to play their favorite games (except for Lost City games), using only the keys that they have covered already. They can also visit Story Lagoon and practice typing one of 40 familiar stories, including fairy tales and classic literature. With this program's careful progression, interesting storyline, high-quality animation, 30+ games, multiple skill levels, and English/Spanish instruction, it's no wonder it is the winner of so many prestigious educational awards. This one comes highly recommended, folks

    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."
