    Here's another great Mr. Pipes book by Douglas Bond. In this story, Annie, Drew, and Mr. Pipes are vacationing in Rome. They accidentally set sail on a schooner that takes them out of Rome and on many adventures as they follow the growth of the early Christian church. As the friends see the sights of Rome, explore catacombs, and sail from various locations, Mr. Pipes adds to the children's earlier lessons and teaches them all about hymns from the early centuries, when the Christian church was just beginning. Learn about the importance of true doctrine and real worship in hymns through a fun and adventurous story. With lyrics from real hymns scattered throughout the story and factual information about old Christian songs, this book is a entertaining way to learn about some of the first hymns – what they were about, who wrote them, and how they have endured all these years. 258 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    This book does a marvelous job of recreating the trip to the New World on the Mayflower and showing exactly what it was like for the pilgrims. Using photographs taken aboard the Mayflower II (a true-to-life reproduction vessel built in 1957) with actors dressed in realist garb from the original voyage's era, the book shares the details of the journey. A little background on why the pilgrims were sailing, provisions they had to bring, delays and their eventual departure, the weather, various people who made the journey, the route taken and navigation of the time period, what daily life was like aboard the ship and special occurrences, how and where the pilgrims landed, and a little about what they did after they landed are all covered in an informative and interesting way. The accompanying photographs of the recreated journey really do bring the story to life and make it seem more real. This is an excellent supplement to your study of early American history and will really help students understand the details about this legendary voyage. By Plimoth Plantation (a living history museum that displays Mayflower II), 48 pgs, pb. ~Rachel

    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.

    Colorful, consumable worktext with a focus on basic skills. The early language skills are presented in a systematic manner: types of sentences, nouns, verbs, adjectives, pronouns, contractions, and antonym/synonym/homophone study. The writing chapters conclude with a writing workshop introducing a simplified version of the series’ writing process – prewriting, drafting, editing, revising, proofreading, and publishing – and covering some basic writing skills – personal narratives, friendly letters, how-to articles, descriptions, and book and research reports. These last two workshops are well –constructed although some might argue that it’s a little early for these particular skills.
