    One of our favorite things to do when we were young was play our Oregon Trail computer game. Though we hardly ever made it alive to the end, we enjoyed planning for the trip by buying supplies, making trail decisions when our wagon broke, hunting for food, fording rivers, and other aspects of traveling the trail. Like most kids, we were fascinated by the idea of leaving behind your home and traveling all the way across the country amid many dangers, in search of a better life. This book brings the adventure of going west to you through stories, "pretend-it-was-you" decision making pages and activities using common materials. The reading is split between interesting historical accounts of life back then and a fictional story of one family's decisions to go west. "Try It" activities litter the book, encouraging you to do things like they did on the trail, including churning butter, drying apple slices, and playing games. Ideas and directions for other activities, such as constructing your own paddleboat, creating a popsicle-stick Ft. Laramie, holding your very own frolic (complete with treats!) and other western aspects appear every few pages to add even more fun to your journey. Though the frontier is gone, and the journey would only take hours today, it's still fun to imagine yourself experiencing life on the trail. ~ Stephanie

    This book focuses on a period not often covered, especially from a Christian perspective! It covers the period following the flood, when portions of the world were undergoing dramatic climatic changes, and some tribes, particularly those that lived in Europe, lived in caves for protection from the climate and the animals. The main portion of the book features Jabeth, a young boy in his tribe. He loves to hear his grandfather talk about the "old days," when Noah gathered the animals into his ark, the world was covered by the Flood, and then how the earth changed afterwards. But for now, Jabeth and his tribe are surviving the effects of the climate change, and are hunting mammoths, bears and elk during the warmer months to store up for the frigid winters. The last part of the book focuses on different aspects of life during the Ice Age, including the climate change, cave paintings, jewelry and carvings, tent shelters, tools, food, cooking, geography, and more from that time period. Superb, full-color illustrations accompany the text. A terrific Christian retelling of a largely unknown period of history! – Jess

    Have you ever decided that you were going to read the Bible, start to finish, only to be sidetracked because the task seemed so daunting? The Wayfinding Bible offers you alternatives to help you navigate through portions of Scripture. This Bible is the New Living Translation and offers you three different routes – flyover route, direct route, and scenic route. The flyover route is divided into 54 readings to help you get a chronological overview of the Bible. The direct route divides the readings into 215 sessions that help you get a complete perspective on the entire Bible and how it fits together (in less than a year). The scenic route is divided into 386 readings that will take you on a journey through passages that may or may not be familiar. Each route is marked with colored arrows at the top of the pages – blue for the flyover route, green for the direct route, and orange for the scenic route. Those arrows will tell the reader if they should continue reading on the next page (straight arrow), skip pages (arrow curved up), jump to a different book (dotted curved arrow), or go backward to read in a previous passage (arrow curved back).

    Along the way, readers will find written introductions for each book, historical markers that emphasize specific locations, scenic overlooks that will also help the reader understand the history and people of the Bible, and Side Trips that highlight passages on certain topics. Getting Your Bearings are found in 8 different places of the Bible to help you look back and look at where you are going next. Photos, maps, illustrations, and a timeline will help you keep on track as you travel through the Bible. An itinerary is found at the back of the Bible for each route, which allows you to keep track of your readings (stops) along the way. A fourth route is found at the very back of this Bible – "Thru-Hike." It takes you chronologically through every word of this Bible. This is the most intense of the reading schedules and you can check off as you read through your journey.

    Choose the route that fits your schedule and get familiar with the flow of the Bible. Enjoy the journey as you learn what God's Word has to offer. Read through as a family or read for personal devotion time – but get started finding your way through the Bible. p/b. ~ Donna

    Considering the approach, ease of use, content, child-appeal, benefits, effectiveness and cost of all the phonics programs we were familiar with, Sing, Spell, Read & Write was our choice for personal use. We have used several programs and read about many others. Although we didn't use this program in total with our children (because we extended the spelling, used italic handwriting instead of ball and stick, etc.) we did find it the most used and useful of those we tried. AND the results were wonderful! If you're looking for something to really lay it all out for you, something that works, is easy to use, and will have your child singing the letter sounds in days, followed closely by actually reading...this is what we recommend! Here are some of our reasons:

    The "raceway" theme is very appealing and motivating to children, who love tracking their success via race car around a track as they complete the 36 steps to independent reading.

    The songs are unquestionably contagious - children will sing and sing and sing and learn their letter sounds, long and short vowel sounds, blending vowels and consonants, and digraphs almost effortlessly - and enjoy it! That is, if you can bear to listen to it sung over and over, multiplied by x times the number of children using it throughout the years.

    The 17 phonetic, full-color storybooks cover all 36 steps, providing immediate, rewarding reinforcement for the decoding skill just learned. This makes good sense.

    The games are not just fluff, but real fortification of phonetic skills. They are more fun, however, if you can play with more than one child.

    The teacher training videos included in the set will greatly aid you in understanding/teaching the phonics program - and give you the confidence to do it!

    Included is a complete, phonetic spelling program dove-tailing with the phonetic constructs being learned and a complete handwriting program (if you use ball and stick manuscript).

    thick, four-color workbooks include grammar and creative writing

    phonics songs are contained in both cassette and CD formats

    The two workbooks and the assessment book included in the set are the only consumables in the program. Replacements must be ordered from the publisher.

    To be honest, we have just a few quibbles :

    1. Some of the tapes/voices are not as clear or distinct as a perfectionist might demand. Some may go a little too "fast" for your taste - notably the ferris wheel song used to practice blending sounds smoothly. For us, this was a plus, since we kept at it until we could keep up with the song, resulting in perfect blending!

    2. The "prizes" included are...well...rather cheesy at best and who needs 4 or 5 yo- yos, several plastic magnifiers, multiple thin plastic bracelets, and numerous plastic sack puppets? When using with one child, one of each would do nicely. To alleviate this, see our special offer below.
