    This unabridged reproduction of the 1905 edition provides children with an extensive, yet engaging history of England from Roman times through the reign of Queen Victoria. There are over a hundred chapters, although each one is only several pages long. Chapters usually focus on a monarch or a specific event (usually a battle) under the reign of the monarch. Although this 654-pg to me looks intimidating at first glance, the writing is lively and descriptive with lots of dialogue. Lifelike black-and-white full-page illustrations are scattered throughout the book. By H.E. Marshall, pb. - Jess

    Dont live in a hand-me-down world of others experiences - write about yours! By the time a person completes this book, he/she will have a scrapbook of their feelings, interests, goals, dreams, thoughts and favorite everything! The book does have a feminine flair (aqua, pink, yellow, lilac, flowers, illustrations of girls), but the prompts are for anyone. Write on the brief, provided lines and in the graphic organizers. If you have a child who struggles to put their thoughts and feelings into words, a journal with a lot of suggestions is a good option. This one is diverse, entertaining and approachable with quite a positive outlook! 7.5"x 9.5", 128 pgs, pb. ~ Sara

     Students of ancient history will profit from this comprehensive study of the Roman Empire. Unlike many histories written on the culture and civilization of ancient Rome, this volume by Greg Woolf truly seeks to give readers an understanding of Rome as an empire. The main focus of the text, therefore, is on the founding, development, and eventual decline of the empire of Rome. By the time students finish this volume, they discover both the triumph and tragedy that was ancient Rome. This book also includes a few helpful maps, and a small number of black-and-white photos. 300 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    Telling Tales: Writing Captivating Short Stories will help you open the doors to new worlds. These works of fiction have a plot, theme, conflict, a smaller cast, and a shorter story line. Get your hands on some short stories to get familiar with different styles. Remember that inspiration is everywhere and that looking at pictures can give you great ideas for the perfect setting. Ask yourself “what if” and “why” as your story develops. Plan your story, visualize it as a movie, weave in conflict, but make it believable. Give multi-facets to your characters with unique qualities and trying to think like they might. Point of view, theme, and special writing techniques like foreshadowing, plot twists, figurative language, simile, and metaphor can add dimensions to your writing. ~ Donna

    This inexpensive Dover Thrift edition collects three excellent short stories written by Leo Tolstoy (who is more known for his rather large works like War and Peace and Anna Karenina).

     Stories from all over the world coupled with beautiful albeit a bit unusual artwork. The result is a delightful family read-aloud. There is an underlying message; the consequences of foolish choices and the wisdom of following the way of kindness, justice, and peace. From master storytellers of many diverse cultures, some of the stories will be familiar like The Nightingale based on a tale by Hans Christian Anderson. Others like The Woodcutter of Gura, a tale from Ethiopia, will be much less so. Enjoy the family moments together (and then look up Ethiopia on the map if you want to round out the study). There are 28 stories; most have a full page, full-color illustration along with several smaller ones. 128 pgs, hardback with slip cover. ~ Janice

    This poignant memoir was written by Eva Schloss, the posthumous stepsister of Anne Frank. Like Anne, Eva was imprisoned in Auschwitz at the age of fifteen, but her story did not end there. Eva and her mother experienced hunger, fear, pain and humiliation on a daily basis, but they both survived the horrors of the prison camps. Eva's incredible story of survival was largely unknown until she published this memoir in 1988. This book provides harrowing details about the atrocities of war and the Holocaust, but it also shows the strength, courage and determination that helped a family overcome tragedy. The center of the book contains black and white photos of Eva's family, and the back features a 2009 interview of Eva by the publisher. 226 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

      Highlights magazines and books have long been a staple in many households for their young ones – hidden pictures, mazes, puzzles, and other fun activities. This series by Highlights adds a new dimension to the traditional hidden picture activity books. There are 59 full-page pictures in each book, a mix of color and blackline, with a corresponding story. There are 12 stickers that correspond to the hidden objects in each picture and 12 blanks within the story. As the child discovers each hidden picture they are to put that sticker into a blank line - in the order in which they find the pictures. The result is a hilariously silly story. I found the paintbrush in the picture first, so I placed the paintbrush sticker in the first blank. My story now reads, “Aviary is a fancy word for a big ‘paintbrush’ where birds from all over the world live.” Find them, stick them, and then read your story!

    Nikolai Gogol (1809-1852) is a Russian writer whose stories influenced later authors such as Dostoyevsky. This collection includes the The Overcoat, Old Fashioned Farmers, The Tale of How Ivan Ivanovich Quarreled with Ivan Nikiforovich, and The Nose. Because this was an author with whom I was unfamiliar, I read the story with the 2 Ivans. It was funny, ridiculous, sad, and unfortunate, with a clear lesson to be learned. I have read other Russian authors and they seem to have a similar style: extremely detailed settings, argumentative conversations, and passionate relationships between both friends and enemies. Some are humorous, others are serious, and all of them are richly written. This small book would be a great option if you are looking to add some world literature to your high school language arts curriculum. 103 pp, pb. ~ Sara
