       I think everyone has wondered from time to time about their place here on earth – “Who am I?” and “What am I doing here?” Many times we measure ourselves using the world’s standards, which can lead to a poor self-image and other negative effects. Natalie Dorso has written this thorough study based on realizations in her own life. She had spent her teen years trying to answer life questions using the world’s guidelines, forgetting that the important thing for her, and all of us, is who we are in Christ. This study is divided into three important areas: Who am I in Christ in Relation to Sin? Who am I in Christ in Relation to God? Who am I in Relation to Other People? Throughout the study, readers are asked to read passages of scripture (KJV), look at its meaning, and then do some thinking and writing. This book is more than just a read through; it offers practical study and application for the reader’s life and situation. Sections titled “Put Off,” “Renew Your Mind,” and “Put On” are your opportunity to answer questions and write out your thoughts – based on Ephesians 4:22-24. “Put Off” is an opportunity to confess and get rid of your sin, ask forgiveness of others (if needed), and cut it out of your life. “Renew Your Mind” is based in God’s Word – it is here that you memorize and meditate. The third section, “Put On,” is your opportunity to swap out bad behavior for good and be held accountable. For students in junior high and high school, this study might be very helpful as they strive to find where they fit and who they are… in Christ! 176 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

    It varies in length, comes in all different sizes and colors, has been translated into countless languages, and has been re-written into many different versions. Through all of these differences, though, the message of the Bible remains the same – but that doesn't necessarily mean it is always accessible or clear. Dig Deeper can help. This book is full of study principles that the authors call "tools." These tools – once learned – will provide readers with understanding they can use to open the Scriptures to a new level. So what, exactly, are these tools? A glance down the table of contents will show one tool per chapter: author's purpose (for writing the book), context, structure, linking words, parallels, narrator's comments, vocabulary, translations, tone and feel, repetition, quotation/allusion, genre, copycat, Bible time line, "who am I" (who is this, relative to who I am), and "so what" (what does this mean for me and my life?). Chapters explain how and why each tool will be useful during your individual or group reading/study periods, and include examples of the tools being put to use and activities that encourage you to start utilizing them. The conclusion ties it all together with a long example of how to use the tools, as a whole kit, on a specific passage. A real hands-on discovery of God's Word. 158 pgs, pb. – Zach

    How well do you know your birds? In this game, the fewer clues you need to figure out the type of bird, the more points you'll score. The game is composed of 300 cards (at three different levels), with each card showing a photograph of the bird on one side and five clues and the name of the bird on the other. One player acts as the reader and reads the first clue to the player on their left, who is the answerer. If the answerer can name the bird after the first clue, they receive 5 points, if they need two clues, they get 4 points, etc, down to 0 points if they can't identify it. Then they become the new reader and play passes around the table. Whoever has the most points after eight rounds wins. For 2+ players.

    An inspiring story of courage and character, this novel begins when David, a twelve year old boy who has lived all of his life in a concentration camp, is given the opportunity to escape. With only a few provisions, he struggles to reach Denmark, where he can have a new life of freedom. Besides this physical journey, David also embarks on a spiritual journey as he comes to realize his need for help and ultimately is shown the full grace of God. ~ Steph

    Subtitled "Beginning Latin for Homeschoolers and Self-Taught Students of Any Age," I could see this book serving as a great introduction to Latin for the family who is not sure they want to jump right into a full-fledged Latin course. Of course, it would be just as useful for an older student (or even Mom and Dad), if they have never studied Latin but want to learn it on their own. The course was designed out of necessity by author William E. Linney, after he was asked by a relative to teach Latin to her children. He set out looking for a course that would not require a Latin teacher, was self-paced, self explanatory, offered lots of practice exercises, was non-threatening, and inexpensive. When he couldn't find a course that suited his needs, he designed this one. The book contains 134 lessons, which are short (usually less than a page in length), un-fluffy, and incremental in progression. Lessons strike a nice balance between introducing new vocabulary, explaining simple grammatical concepts, and memorization of noun and verb forms. No lesson covers all of these tasks, but instead focuses on one objective and covers it well. Lessons that introduce new Latin vocabulary feature a new Latin word, its English meaning, and sometimes a pronunciation tip. This is usually followed by about ten sentences to translate. Lessons on grammar are also bite-sized, and different forms and cases are introduced gradually. As they are introduced, they are added to a chart, and students will translate sentences that use the forms and cases that they have learned. As charts are filled with endings or forms, students may be asked to memorize them, to aid in future lessons. Just for fun, "Latin Expressions" are scattered throughout the book. In each one, the author takes a common Latin phrase like "caveat emptor," or "etc." and explains the Latin history behind each phrase. Don't underestimate how these little "sparks" of knowledge whet your appetite to learn more! By the end of the book, students will have stockpiled basic vocabulary of around 100 words, be comfortable translating simple sentences in Latin, and have a grasp of basic Latin grammar.

    There are a couple of aspects of this course worth noting. First of all, because the book is more of a text than a worktext it is not designed to be consumable. For translation purposes, the author recommends translating the sentences in a separate notebook. If extra practice is desired, you may wish to translate the sentences back to the form given in the lesson. Secondly, while we all realize that pronunciation is very difficult to teach "out of a book", the author has considered this, and has come up with an ingenious solution. He has provided MP3 audio files free of charge on his website, which can be downloaded and used with the lessons. As an added bonus, you can choose from either classical pronunciation or ecclesiastical pronunciation. Audio commentary on the lessons and a host of other helpful resources is also included on the website. Lastly, this course would be excellent prep for an older student who will be studying Latin in high school or college who hasn't had the benefit of laying a basic Latin foundation earlier in life. Upon completion of this book, I think students would be more ready to tackle Lingua Latina, Oxford University Latin, Henle Latin, or Cambridge Latin, than if they were starting off cold. Latina Christiana I or other complete courses designed for younger students could also be considered reasonable continuations, although there would be much more overlap/review between courses. This is a terrific way to get started in Latin and I am glad that the author did not find what he was looking for to teach Latin, because he has certainly written a course that fulfills all of his goals! – Jess

    I am excited that Ray and Charlene Notgrass have written this excellent, one year world history course! While many families enjoy a chronological, multi-year approach to world history, others prefer to study history in a more traditional manner-one year at a time. Written in the engaging narrative ‘voice’ that has made the Notgrass courses beloved by many homeschool families, this new World History begins at the very foundation of our Christian foundation- Adam and journeys to the end of the 20th century, with a final unit on our interconnected world (from the thrill of world-wide sporting events to turmoil in the Middle East).

    Containing 30 units, with 5 lessons per unit, this course will take students one year to complete. It is anticipated that daily lessons will take 45-90 minutes per day, although it is naturally flexible for homeschool families to set their own pace. While the target grade range is 5 through 8, families with younger children will find this a perfect ‘read aloud’ curriculum, as the text has been clearly and engagingly written.

    Let me give a bit of an example of how the unit lessons are laid out. At the start of each unit, there is a brief introduction to the lessons including the recommended literature selection to accompany the reading. Each weekly unit has one lesson from each of five categories: Our World Story (major events in history); God’s Wonders (impact of the world’s created wonders on history and culture); World Landmarks; World Biography of some of history’s most influential personalities and Daily Life (an inside view of everyday life). Daily lessons are richly illustrated with graphics and photographs, including maps of historic places and regions. At the conclusion of each lesson (approximately 5-8 pages), parents and children will select assignments to complete from a list of 5-7 assignments. Older students may be able to complete all the activities-but again- there is built-in flexibility for your individual family’s needs. Assignments include readings from the Our Creative World book (collection of original documents); Map Book assignments; Timeline Book assignments; assignments from the Student Workbook and Lesson Review Book (optional resources), as well as language arts assignments covering vocabulary, creative writing, literature selections. Thinking Biblically assignments are also included with most lessons and are designed to engage students in applying Scripture to history and life. Each unit also provides a suggested weekly family activity-projects vary and include arts and crafts, recipes and games. Materials are easily found for the projects and are designed to bring the family together to enjoy time together building memories.

    Curriculum package contains From Adam to Us Part 1 & 2; Our Creative World, Map Book, Timeline Book and the Answer Key to end of the lessons questions as well as the activities and tests in the Student Workbook and the questions and tests in the Lesson Review. Although it is possible to share the Map and Timeline books, they are available separately, allowing each child to have their own copy. I suspect that most children will be eager to create their own map and timeline.

    If you would like to add more supplemental instruction or review, consider the Student Workbook (5th-6th grade) or the Lesson Review (7th-8th grades). Both include additional assignments that correspond to the daily lesson as well as unit tests and questions related to the literature selections. Most literature based questions are recall based. However, there are a smattering of higher level thinking questions.

    Middle school children will be enthralled as they view world history through the lens of a Creator God who is alive and active, from the very foundation of our world through present day. ~ Deanne

    I am the first to admit that reading a book about economics is not at the top of my list. But once I got into it, I kept reading and reading! The first edition of this book appeared in 1947. Author Henry Hazlitt revised it in 1961 and again in 1978, but don't think for a minute that the information is not relevant to our world today. I found myself drawn into reading about the broken window fallacy. That is, if someone throws a brick through a bakery window, and the owner has to pay a glazier $250 to fix it, the brick-thrower has created work for the glazier. But this is a fallacy because prior to the brick through his window, the baker had a whole window and was planning to use the $250 to buy a new suit. So, the tailor actually lost work due to the brick-thrower. The overall economy is no further ahead due to the brick, get it? There are consequences we can see, such as the glazier getting a $250 window replacement job, and those we cannot see, such as the tailor who never got to make the baker a suit for $250. It's stories such as this that helped me understand economic principles like how need does not equal demand. Building a bridge to create jobs vs. there being a need for a new bridge; it was getting fascinating and kept my attention! Hazlitt made me think of the immediate vs. long-term results of a money decision. I was nervous at first that the language was too sophisticated for most students, but as I got into it, I adapted to the vocabulary and I think a high school student would too. Pb, 14pp. ~ Sara

    The things that Lisa, her older sister Ruth, her younger sister Annie, and her mother had to endure is incredible. They lived in Berlin in 1938 when the Nazis were first starting to take over. Lisa's father, who is referred to as Papa, decides in the very beginning of this story to leave Germany and establish a foundation for his family in America. Meanwhile, life in Berlin is getting more dangerous for Jewish people, and as the threat of war is turning into reality, Papa sends a letter over, suggesting that his wife and their daughters flee to Switzerland, masking the emigration as a vacation. Mother is allowed to bring only 10 marks per person with her, which puts her in a very challenging financial situation. She keeps Annie with her and is forced to send Ruth and Lisa to a camp where there are other children in similar situations or without parents at all. The girls don't get enough to eat and don't have the kind of care that all children need. After they visit their mother, she senses this and takes them out of the camp. Pretty soon, all three girls are sent to live with three different families in Zurich, where they are well-nourished and thrive. Mother collapses from pneumonia and spends this time in the hospital. She recovers and the family is on their way to being reunited with their father, whom they have not seen for nearly a year by this time, as he has been saving for their tickets to America. Sonia Levitin tells a touching, and very real story, that I am sure was sadly not uncommon.

       How many times have you, as a mother, become frustrated and stressed by what you think you should accomplish on any given day? Society tells moms that they should be ‘super moms’ and be able to do it all. This book debunks that myth and others.

      There are many myths about motherhood, and this book focuses on ten of them: Mothering is natural, easy, and instinctive; The way I mother is the right and only way; I am just a mom; Motherhood is all-consuming and all-fulfilling; A good mother can do it all, all at once; Motherhood is a rat race; Motherhood is the luck of the draw; Everything depends on me; I have to do it all right, or my child will turn out wrong; My child’s bad choice means I’m a bad mom. This 217-page, softcover book is written by two moms, Karen Ehman and Ruth Schwenk, who realized the myths of motherhood were just that, and wanted to encourage and help other mothers. They use their experience and the Bible to equip mothers to embrace relationships instead of stressing over the other ‘stuff’ of life.

      You don’t have to be a ‘super mom’ to be a ‘great mom.’ Learn the truth from the Bible about being a mother, and stop believing the lies and myths. Your children will be grown all too soon, so enjoy guiding and nurturing them now on the journey you are taking together. ~ Donna

      Learn an impressive amount of music history in this 99 page book! I am so impressed at how much this book manages to pack in its pages. 1500 years of music history is broken down into six periods, from Medieval to Modern. The first page for each period has a running timeline of the advancements in music along with major historical events to help solidify the information and provide context. There are also pictures of famous paintings and sculpture from the corresponding era for a more complete mental picture, along with lots of info about the cultural implications of the music and key elements of music theory that impacted the pieces. The book provides so much info, that reading alone might get a little dry, but don’t worry. There is an included 15 track CD to provide applicable listening material. Not only that, but on the publisher’s website, you can find even more music (ranging from 5 to 45 pieces per chapter) to really solidify what your student is learning. The information is provided in straightforward text, so older students are able to read and understand by themselves, though a parent could easily summarize the info for a younger student who wants to learn alongside an older sibling. Use alone, or as a history supplement for your musical student. 99 pg, sc., with 15 track CD. – Laura

       Have an aspiring songwriter who needs a push in the right direction? Check out this book! Part journal, part writing-prompts-meets-activity-book, this fun book makes it easy to brainstorm lyrics. While it’s not so heavy on the actual musical notation (if you’re looking for a journal that is, check out #033794), there is a very basic explanation of musical elements such as tempo and melody. Material is presented through songwriting tricks, organized into three chapters: Ideas, Words, and Music. 7-10 tricks are detailed in each section, such as “The verses are the story and the chorus is how you feel about it” and “Do what’s been done, only different!” Each page is really engaging with some different fonts and colors of text, “post-it’s” featuring important messages, and just a fun tone. Following the tricks chapters, authors will be prompted to write a variety of eight different songs including a Cinderella song (where the verses tell a story), a silly song, a So Hard to Be You blues song, an adventure song, and more. 160 hardcover pages. – Laura

    In college, I joined a television club as well as a movie-making club. Between the two, I fell head-over-heels in love with video production as well as making those skills accessible to students who wanted to try filmmaking. When I picked up this book, I felt that same excitement again! Learn to Speak Film is an incredibly detailed yet accessible introduction to movie making and the film industry. The wealth of information is laid out in a very clear format and progresses in logical order. Readers will learn how to write and format a script and work through pre-production (planning, writing a shot list, picking a cast, finding locations, etc.). Next, shoot the film – learn about techniques for camera, sound, lighting, wardrobe, and craft services (film speak for feeding the cast and crew). Last comes post-production, which includes editing, sound, and music. This book also contains promotional tips for getting your films into screenings and film festivals, because your movie was made to be shared! I am very impressed at how this book presents an accurate approach to the film industry, but still makes it very accessible for newbies. If you or your child has a story to tell, this book is a great way to get started. 96 pgs, sc. – Laura

    This activity book (workbook) is designed to help students uncover what they value most and help them self-define the morals and values that make them who they are. The reader works through twenty chapters which focus on character and morals. The first 8 provide a basis for the students understanding of himself: learning to think about ones own thoughts and feelings, interpreting mistakes, finding balance and journeying to reach for ones dreams, etc. Then, the remaining chapters address some specific morals: honesty; learning; respect; peace in nature (appreciation for and value of environment); boundaries; healthy relationships; consequences; forgiveness; humor; gratitude and diversity. Note: no rationale is suggested for why one should have these traits; there are no Biblical references or motivations listed other than those implicitly suggested by quotations from other children who have also worked through this book. Ultimately, the student himself will determine the reasoning. Each trait is briefly described; a criteria checklist is then provided to help the student evaluate his own ability in each area. The student then reads quotations from other kids regarding the topic. The next step asks the student to think about and practice the principles, imagining and drawing themselves using that principle. Finally, the student is asked to answer specific introspective questions. The lesson culminates in writing a final summation of the students view about this trait. These twenty summation statements then become the students overall mission statement.

    To explain this practically, lets use the trait of Honesty. Some goal statements are "I will strive to be honest with myself and with others; I can count on myself and count on others". After reading other kids statements, the student is asked to think about honesty and practice it that day. Finally, the student is asked to write "Why its important to be honest; think about a time when you were dishonest; How did your dishonesty affect you and the person you lied to?", etc. Then the student sums up what he/she has learned and create a mission statement. After completing the book, a student will have developed a life mission statement based on the 20 statements theyve created in the workbook. Designed as a complete workbook with no additional items necessary. Note: no Biblical content. 196 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    Prayer is such an important aspect of the Christian faith, and we need to teach our children in language they can understand. The Circle Maker for Kids is intended for little ones, ages 4 and up, and illustrates beautifully what faith and prayer can do. The story is about Honi the ancient rainmaker – Honi believed that God could hear them and declared, "The same God who made the thunder will make it clap. The same God who made the clouds will make them rain." There was a yearlong drought in the land, and the people turned to Honi for help. Honi prayed within a circle he had drawn on the ground until God answered his prayers. The people learned by Honi's example of fervent, bold prayer and began to encircle every part of their lives with prayer.

    I am part of the prayer ministry at our church, and have been encouraged as I hear people talk about the power of prayer and the things they have seen God do. Children need to learn at a very young age that God is there with them and for them, and that prayer is their tool for communication with God. This 32-page, hardcover book would be a great gift to a little one in your life. ~ Donna

      You can’t judge a book by its size! This small, unassuming book by the late Henri Nouwen is packed, cover to cover, with a concept that will really make you think about your role here on Earth.

      This book closely examines Matthew 20:22 - “You don’t know what you are asking, “Jesus said to them. Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?” What does it mean to “drink the cup?”

      Nouwen breaks drinking wine down into 3 steps – holding, lifting and drinking – and talks about what each step really means. Holding is examining ourselves and looking critically at who we really are – skills, abilities, shortcomings. He compares the cup to life, Jesus gave his life (blood) for us, so it is not only our life, but that of others as well. Lifting the cup is sharing and joining with others – being able to be honest with each other and work together for the good of the Kingdom and life here on earth. Drinking the cup is fully trusting God and embracing unconditional love, being ready to deal with the consequences of living as Jesus did.

      Henri Nouwen uses stories from his own life as he explains the process of holding, lifting, and drinking. This is a quick and interesting read – only 123 pages – that might help give you a new perspective on a life worth living. ~ Donna
