    Little Pilgrim's Progress maintains all the allegorical messages, characters and places of the original. Helen Taylor wanted a younger audience (elementary and middle school children) to profit from the allegory as much as countless generations of "grown-up" Christians had before them. Accordingly, the language and vocabulary is more accessible and the main character is a young boy rather than a man. See more details on the corresponding Adventure Guide, which examines everything from literary elements to biblical truths found in the book.

    I love reading about the guiding hand of God in our nation's history. I find the story fascinating and the men of faith and conviction inspiring. This book is written in the same vein. Based on the assumption that all of history is providential, we learn how God's presence was evident at our nation's founding in the hearts and minds of the men who fought for independence and framed the Constitution. The book opens with an overview of geography and ancient history before moving to American history. A portion of the book is devoted to the history of education in our country. Later chapters focus on our decline as a nation, and a reconstructionist view is presented for bringing our nation back to what the authors believe God wants it to be. This book is used as a teacher resource for the Beautiful Feet American history studies. Lots of pictures and illustrations. 300 pgs.

    If you want to dig a little deeper into source documents referred to in America's Providential History, get the accompanying Documentary Sourcebook. Inspiring in its own right, this book includes speeches and documents that portray the Christian influence in the founding and history of our nation. A sampling of the offerings in this book includes excerpts from Columbus' Journal of His First Voyage, Fast and Thanksgiving Days of New England, Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution, Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom, Washington's Farewell Address, excerpts from Democracy in America, the 1853 report from the Senate Judiciary Committee about the importance of congressional chaplains. 136 pg, pb.

    For ease of tying these two books together, consider the Teacher's Guide, which includes: APH chapter outlines; study questions for each of the 18 chapters, with answers; three exams, with answers; and a list of books for further study. 102 pgs, pb. ~ Bob

    This classic political satire by George Orwell attaches the idea of totalitarian government using farm animals as characters. The animals try to run the farm on their own and create a paradise of progress and equality, but certain animals (namely the pigs) begin to take control and take away freedoms. With great parallels to many governments, this book is a must-read. A few complete and unabridged editions are available. The Signet Classic Edition has a preface by Russell Baker and is 144 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    I remember reading this classic in high school and initially despising the book. Thankfully, by the end, I came to really appreciate and love the novel and its various levels of meaning. On the surface, the book is about a society of rabbits who are forced to flee their home while it's being destroyed by a land developer. They travel the English countryside, dodging all kinds of danger, looking for a safe place to live. With themes of freedom, survival, the need for a home, acceptance of different cultures, ethics, and human nature, the story about a group of rabbits is surprisingly entertaining and moving. 476 pgs, pb.

    This classic by George Orwell made phrases like "Big Brother" and "Thought Police" part of our national vocabulary. It's a haunting tale of conformity and identity set during a time when the government controls not only information, but individual thought and memory as well. A common man, Winston Smith, joins an underground brotherhood that fights against the Republic – he's an enemy of the state. The novel follows his rebellion, imprisonment, torture, and re-education. It's a compelling book full of subtle (and not so subtle) warnings about the power of government and the importance of personal freedom. A haunting and thought-provoking read. 294 pgs, pb.

    Pam Conrad brings you this gripping log of Pedro de Salcedo, who was aboard the great voyage with Christopher Columbus from August 3rd of 1492 to February 14th of 1493. Pedro is a young man of only fourteen, and it is his first time away from home. The captain quickly makes him a sort of right-hand man. Pedro watches how intensely the men doubt Columbus from the beginning. The day before they finally touch land, Columbus promises they will turn around home. As fate would have it, the next day they land in a place Columbus names San Salvador. Here they gain experience with the natives, who are extremely docile and generous. In each place they land on, the people gradually become unfriendly - perhaps some words of caution were spread? Soon enough, the entire crew realizes they have not landed in India and there are no spices or silks or pearls. In fact, nobody except Columbus cares about anything except heading home to Spain at this point. After the sinking of the Santa Maria, some of the men board the Nina to go home, and the others are left behind to start a Spanish settlement in the New World. Pedro fears he may not ever return home. On the last day at sea, he encases a last letter into a barrel and throws it out to the ocean so that if it ever reaches his home, his mother should know that he loves her and she should pray for his soul. This recounting is sometimes suspenseful, troubling, and mystifying, but at all times it is engaging.

    Growing up, if I was given historical fiction presented in clear language for my age level, I was hooked in a matter of minutes. KidVentures presents four Bible stories in this same manner. Trouble Times Ten features an Israelite boy named Ben who is afraid of water. When Moses tells his family that they need to cross the Red Sea to freedom, will he be able to trust God or will he be left behind? Ruled Out tells the story of Ethan who lives with the people who made it out of Egypt. Moses has been up on Mount Sinai for a while, and the people are starting to change, which scares Ethan. Galen and Goliath tells the story of Galen, a young Philistine who is told to kill a young boy to prove his bravery and loyalty. Trouble comes when Galen must decide if he wants to honor the giant Goliath or the God of the Israelites. The Prophet's Kid tells the story of Ezra, who just wants to have fun. He goes to a meeting he isn't allowed to attend, which lands him in a heap of trouble that even causes someone's life to be at risk!

    All these stories are bound into a 313-page softcover book that includes a parent/teacher guide filled with discussion questions, background information, and learning activities. Great for Bible studies or recreational reading. – Laura
