    How much do you know? Find out! A sort of visual trivia challenge, the board in this game is laid out with twelve images. Each player rolls two die: one colored, one numbered. The player then finds an image with a border that matches the color they rolled and tries to identify it. Each image also has a word clue at the bottom to explain what should be identified (Landmark, Mythical Creature, Political Figure, Animal, Sport, Planet, Company, Vehicle Make, etc.) If the player correctly identifies the picture, they will answer one of three different types of questions about it. The question will be true/false, multiple choice, or open-ended depending on the roll. For example, if I identified the fictional character of Sherlock Holmes and rolled a 3, I would answer this open-ended question: Who was Holmes' arch nemesis? Oooh! Eye know this one! It was Moriarty! Since I was correct, I would receive that card for my efforts. The first player to five cards wins. For 2 or more players/teams. Game time: approx. 30 minutes. Note: there are some adult themes/questions in this game, such as a trivia card about Playboy.

    Some of the best stories are the ones that come from real people in history. One such story starts with a boy who was raised a Quaker in the Pennsylvania region before the founding of the United States. Benjamin West enjoyed painting so much he did what most would never think of doing: He made paint from clay, plants, and dirt, and fashioned paintbrushes from the tail of his cat, Grimalkin! Follow the great American writer Marguerite Henry as she traces the early years of this young man and his cat in this exciting tale. 147 pgs, pb. John

    Welcome to a real science trivia game! Gone are questions like “who created the Theory of Evolution” or “what are the components of molecules called.” In this hardcore trivia game, 220 cards in a range of topics such as food & drink, game theory, astronomy, and famous scientists grace this box. Each turn, players select a face-down card with progressively more difficult questions related to a specific topic. For example, the card “Newton” begins with “what branch of mathematics are both Sir Isaac Newton, and his nemesis Gottfried Leibniz, credited with creating independently of one another?” Whether you answer that correctly or not (Calculus!), the next question is: “in the time of Newton, what was a scientist called?” (Natural Philosopher). And finally, “Newton was the second scientist to be knighted; who was the first?” (Sir Francis Bacon). Each correct answer scores a point! The cards are roughly the same difficulty, but to make it fair for anyone with more specific knowledge, teams take turns selecting cards; when there are none left, the team with the most points wins! For 2+ players. 15-60-minute playtime.

    Becoming a family that reads aloud together was one of the most enjoyable journeys my family made. I only wish this book had been available when we transitioned into a read aloud family!

    Are you looking to introduce the reading of "living literature" into your home but feel overwhelmed at the vast array of books available? While there are many books available to guide you in selecting books, Read for the Heart is written from the perspective of a home educated young lady who was home educated in a family which successfully incorporated living literature into their home. Sarah Clarkson, daughter of Clay and Sally Clarkson, shares the inspiration and vision for incorporating literature into our homes through research, personal stories and suggestions on how to make reading a reality in your home. Her goal is simply to equip you to develop a reading habit within your own home, and with this book she has accomplished this goal.

    The first three chapters focus on helping you develop the habit of reading in your home. The following chapter is intended to give you a "road map" on using this book most effectively. The remaining chapters contain the booklists and are organized according to types of books. Each chapter focuses on one of the following eight literature categories: Picture Books, Golden Age Classics, Children's Fiction, Fairy Tales and Fantasy, History and Biography, Spiritual Reading, Poetry and Music, and Art and Nature. Prior to the lists, Sarah shares personal stories as well as explanations on why certain books are included in each category. This is specifically beneficial when considering the Fairy Tales and Fantasy Category. Within each chapter, book recommendations are organized by author and include a brief book review. This book review includes author's name, original publication date, award(s), illustrator, general age category, a short review, and any cautions you, the parent, should know regarding mature or questionable content. Appendices at the end of this book provide you quick references for finding books. These lists include Caldecott Medalists, Newberry Medalists, G.A. Henty Historical Fiction, Landmark History Books, Trailblazer Series, and Sarah's personal favorite literature for family read-aloud. All in all, this soft-cover book contains 384 pages of living literature inspiration for your family. The text is a larger print with ample margin space to record your own family favorites, thoughts, and memories. A delightful book that is sure to inspire you on your own journey of family reading. ~ Deanne

    In the pioneering days of aviation, people were risking their very lives to try to accomplish new things. Here is the story of Frenchman Louis Blériot, a pioneer who was as keen about building and flying his machines as the Wright brothers were. While he was not the first to fly, he was the first to fly across the English Channel after experimenting with many different planes. This simple story, with large colorful illustrations, tells of his first encounter with flying machines and chronicles his successes and failures in the build-up to his triumphant flight across the channel. ~ Zach

    Everyone knows Santa Claus as the jolly old fellow who delivers presents on Christmas Eve. But who was he and where did he come from? This novel presents an answer. Nikolas by name, he was a lonely, scrawny twig of a boy, meting out a meager existence in Finland’s frozen tundra with his loving father. But disaster soon strikes—his father embarks on a lengthy journey of disreputable origin, and young Nikolas is taken under the wing of his cruel Aunt Carlotta. He runs away from home and seeks his father with the help of an equally dismal mouse and a loyal reindeer named Blitzen. The cold, lonely plains of Finland plague Nikolas almost as much as the numerous bad guys standing in his way. Reminiscent of “classic” children’s fairy tales, this children’s novel is excellent in its own right. With a fun, exciting plot, clever jokes, and a vast array of colorful characters, this “origin of Santa” story makes for great Christmas reading! 234 pages, hc.

      In 2016, our 2nd Annual Super Summer Book Contest had a comic book format. Eleven year old Cami Frahm was our winner! Her story was chosen among all of our entries by a panel of judges using very specific criteria. Her darling story about a monkey named Mango is beautifully illustrated and well organized. Mango is relatable and we all just fell in love with the tale of poor Mango who was feeling discouraged. You see, her younger brother Caleb is better at everything they like to do together: board games, basketball, and even riding a unicycle. Mango feels her brother is showing off and that she has no talent whatsoever. It takes some introspection and a little nudge from Mom for Mango to discover how many talents she really has and that she shouldn’t be angry with her brother for having talents she covets. You can tell how much time the young author took in every single frame on each page of her book. Her characters are so expressive and even the backgrounds are well done. Bravo to Cami and all of our young authors! 14pp, sc, 6.5x10”, glossy paper ~ Sara
