    This oversized journal has loads of clever writing prompts. Between 1 and 4 prompts on a page, with dotted lines to write on. Here are a few examples: Think of 3 things that are definitely bigger than you, then write a dialogue between these 3 things. Your house is a jar of sand and your bed is a lock with a key in it – what are you? Write about a squirrel that is trapped in a shopping mall. What is your favorite sound and why? Use the words you hear to create a poem. Lots of great ideas to get creative flowing and writing practice started. 9”x 11”, 304 pgs, pb. ~ Sara

     I’ve tried a fair amount of grocery/meal planning pads, but this one definitely seems like a great choice! Each sheet is divided into two portions: a Menu and a Shopping List. The menu has 21 slots: 3 meals a day, 7 days a week. Next to each meal is a check box to note if ingredients are needed to prepare the meal. The shopping list has twenty-three 2” spaces to write needed ingredients. Check against the items you have, make your list, and when you’re ready to go shopping, simply tear off the perforated shopping list! Hang your menu on the fridge so your family knows what to look forward to each day. 60 sheets. ~ Laura

    A sticky note for every occasion is what this collection brings to mind! When you open the book of notes, the left side is a nice “list” pad (not sticky.) On the right there are several smaller sticky pads for notes with the headings: Must Get Done, It Can Wait, I’ll Do Tomorrow, Short List, and If I Don’t Do Today. Smaller, rectangular sticky flags include a small arrow without any writing, a small blank note and a small one with lots of exclamation marks in addition to ones worded “Don’t Forget,” “Do Now,” and “Must Have” I really like this set for the cool masculine colors. The green cover reminds me of hospital scrubs; the color palette is that same green, black, parchment, orange, and bit of white. It’s a very practical gift item for the unfussy folks in your life. Each pad holds 50 sheets for a grand total of 600.  ~ Sara

      This is one of my favorites – 200 pages, with an avocado green cover, in which to write your favorite recipes. Pages are labeled on the side with categories – appetizers, main dishes, sides/soups/salads, and dessert. There is room for 25 recipes in each section and space for: title, perfect for serving with, date, from, prep time, servings, nutritional info, ingredients, hard to find ingredients, directions, notes, rating system for the finished product, and a full page on the back of each for additional notes. Write down your favorite family recipes and give this as a gift!

      This journal would be perfect for the traveler, young or old. The cover is made of heavy brown cardboard to stand up to the adventure, there are 200 pages printed with soy ink on manila paper, and it is spiral-bound to lay flat. The journal starts off with a map of the United States – you can shade in the states as you visit them. States are arranged alphabetically and each includes a full-page map of the state with major cities and the capital marked. One full page has space to write the date visited and with whom, purpose/reason for the visit, places visited, what I enjoyed most, what I found most interesting, and what you would like to do on the next visit. The next two pages allow space for notes or journaling about the experience. There are even some interesting facts printed on the note page. Journal your way across the 50 states and the things you will discover!

    Touring the agricultural lab that developed penicillin in the 1940s? Now, that's a good field trip! Science and history all wrapped up together! We all know there is value in field trips but sometimes we're a little overwhelmed at adding one more thing to busy lives and schedules. This book will help! This resource contains a bit of public school flavor and some of its content is geared toward putting together more formal proposals and plans than necessary with many homeschool field trips. Nevertheless, you will find lots of practical ideas for locations and what to do, as well as for handling all those pesky logistics.

    The goal is learning, right? And, as you would expect, the local community is the place to start. Suggestions for community field trips are organized alphabetically – from airports to zoos with all sorts of interesting "in-betweeners": alarm or security companies, cemeteries, junkyards (?), shell shops, just to mention a very few. There are 121 solid suggestions in this section. What I like even better, though, is the fleshing-out of those suggestions. For instance, did you know that small, private airports are best and that you should ask to see the wind sock, the runway, the airplanes, and hangars? While there, you should go close to a plane and, if possible, into the cockpit or passenger section. And, of course, observe a plane landing or taking off. I've taken almost this exact same field trip with my children but we had the added bonus of being able to take a short flight in a small plane. It was memorable!

    Some neighborhood field trip ideas are creative. Use your neighborhood (i.e. counting vehicles at a corner – tally and graph the kinds or colors of vehicles that pass by), your school grounds (i.e. classify objects - most of these could be done even better in your own backyard). Other ideas are come-to-you field trips (i.e. veterans or professionals), and, interestingly, even web-based field trips (i.e. an introduction to deserts in a number of environments).

    This book is packed with good information. In addition to the where to go/what to do aspect, a lot of nitty-gritty logistical details are provided so you won't forget something essential. Granted, the orientation is a classroom of children, but the only real difference between those classrooms and a homeschooling group is the variety of ages in the latter. You still need to prepare your students for the experience, plan for their safety, and make sure you have certain supplies. However, homeschoolers probably have it easier when it comes to arranging transportation.

    Obviously, targeting classroom situations, this book includes some information that might seem or be irrelevant for homeschoolers. The introductory section discussing the rationale for taking field trips is lengthy (over 30 pages). Although there is food for thought here, much of this information appears to be geared toward grant-writing with the goal of funding school field trips. The chapters grouped under Caring and Curiosity (sparking interest) and Field Trips are for Learning (determining and assessing learning), while couched in education-speak are filled with first-hand field trip experiences that illustrate various teaching methodologies and goals. If you're willing to spend just a bit of time in these chapters, there are valuable take-away points for your entire homeschooling experience—not just field trips. And when it comes to planning and organizing field trips, the idea and how to chapters are worth the price of the book. 262 pp, pb. ~ Janice

    Muffins and cookies and cakes, oh my! This beautiful baking book was designed by someone who knew what they were doing! And that someone would be Kathleen King, owner and baker of Tate’s Bake Shop (and creator of the recipe for the best chocolate chip cookie in America – the recipe is included in this book!). The heading of each page gives you the basic information you most want to know: the name of the recipe, a short write-up of what you can expect, the difficulty level, preparation time, and number of servings. Ingredients are clearly listed below, followed by 5 step-by-step instructions. The book is spiral bound at the top, which allows the pages to stand open and lay flat, the back cover folds open at the bottom so the book will stand up (if you so desire), the pages are glossy so you can easily wipe them clean. The full-color pages offer photographs of each delightful baked item; you’ll almost be able to smell and taste them! The book includes recipes for 20 desserts, plus several icing recipes, and explains basic cooking terms. While this one may be written for kids, the recipes will please the most discerning of adult palates! ~ Megan

    This 8.5" x 11" sheet has a sticky back so you can post it on almost any surface (it's pretty much like a large sticker but can be removed easily and repositioned several times before starting to lose adhesiveness). The front of the sheet displays a lined memo pad on one half and a lined shopping list on the other (with 11 lines on each side) so you can write down various lists and notes. The "Write & Wipe" surface of the sheet is very glossy so you can use all kinds of writing utensils on it and erase them later. Please note: the product states you can use everything from crayons to paint to permanent markers on the surface, but if you want the best results, stick with washable or dry erase markers or maybe crayons. Some things, like certain markers, don't write very well on the slick surface and others, specifically permanent markers, do not wipe off like the product claims. ~Rachel

    As parents, we want to teach our children the value of work and also the philosophical idea that wages are often tied to work ethic. I think you will love this practical idea – I know I would have when my children were younger! It's an excellent tool to help children develop positive attitudes about work, the value of money and how they are interrelated (work equals money!) Designed to be unique to each family, parents select the chores they wish to see completed and set a wage for the work. Each Chore Buck reward sheet measures 8 ½" x 11", and the top half contains a place to write eight weekly chores and as well as two bonus chores bucks followed by checkboxes to check which day(s) of the week the task is completed. Amounts for weekly chores and bonus chores are totaled and the bottom of each chore buck sheet provides a blank check for you to write to your child in the amount earned. As a parent, you can then teach them simple budget skills through how much they give, save, and spend. You could then purchase different inexpensive items and allow them to shop at "Mom and Pop's General Store," exchange their checks for real currency, or set a dollar amount on privileges such as desserts/snacks, having friends over, computer game time, etc. Contains 26 sheets (a 6 month supply for one child). ~Deanne

    This small booklet contains one copywork passage for each WriteShop I lesson, which usually relates to that lesson's writing assignment. Later in the week, teachers read the passage out loud. As a teacher dictates, students write out the passage, thus strengthening auditory skills.

    This lovely planner is designed for the Christian homemaker. It's divided into seven tabbed sections, each prefaced by an inspirational quote. The first section has two mini year-at-a-glance calendars (one for the current year and one for the following year). Each mini calendar fits on one page, with the facing page containing space to write important dates for each month. (This "Dates to Remember" page also provides a thumbnail year-at-a-glance view). The second section shows monthly calendars across a two-page spread. The third section, "Weekly Planning", makes up the bulk of the calendar. It shows a week per two-page spread, with lined space for writing. Helpful features include a lined-space "Tasks List" at the beginning of each week and a "menu" space for each day. The fourth and fifth sections, "Tasks" and "Projects", provide several unlabeled lined pages for jotting down notes. The "Info" section has space to fill in names, phone numbers, and addresses of important contacts. The final "Shopping" section provides over 20 lined pages to use as shopping lists. Each page is divided into three vertical columns, which conveniently tear off at the perforations, for a total of 60 shopping lists. This spiral-bound planner has a laminated cover for durability. ~ Lisa

    Volume Two picks up where Story of the World Volume One left off, and it tells the fascinating story of the “Dark Ages,” from the fall of Rome through the Renaissance. This volume has been written very similarly to the other also, with a very readable text, appropriate for young children, told in a clear and engaging style. Each of the many chapters is relatively short, and broken up into smaller chunks that are the perfect length for curling up together and reading aloud. Also like the preceding book, this story of history doesn’t limit itself to a dry, white-bread-without-the-crusts retelling of a primarily European history, instead it is a rich, whole wheat blend of European, Indian, Chinese, Australian, Arabic, Japanese, Jewish, Mongolian, Turkish, African, Russian, and American history during the period, providing the young student with a much more complete view of what was going on all around the world during that intriguing time period. To cover every event in each of these diverse histories would take a whole library, however, and just as Susan Wise Bauer tells us in her first volume, use this volume as a springboard to more detailed readings about any events that you and the children find interesting and want to learn more about. A timeline and an index are included at the back.

    Like its predecessor, the Activity Book corresponds chapter-by-chapter with the text from the Story of the World readings, and the sections and activities are well-organized and easy to implement. Each chapter begins with review questions for the book. Narration exercises are also included, so that the child may write or dictate to you a summary of what they learned. A list of books for additional reading follows, each with a concise summary and an approximate reading level to help you find those most appropriate for your child’s ability and interest. Corresponding literature, consisting of more "story-like" volumes such as cultural tales and myths are also featured to liven up your history reading, lending a little more interest to those lovers of fiction. An excellent range of activities follow the reading lists, including map work, a coloring page, and projects, which include art, crafts, games, and other more "involved" activities. An abundance of opportunities for "beyond-the-book" learning about here, but as the author mentioned in the activity book for Vol. 1, you should not feel pressured to read every book and complete every activity - history studied in this manner should be a fun and enjoyable journey for all involved, not an endless checklist of items you "have to" complete to pass a test. These courses lend themselves very well to family study, and a lot of the activities would be much more enjoyable with at least a couple siblings or friends. Fortunately, Susan Wise Bauer has anticipated this, and has denoted chosen activities with a "C" to highlight its use as a good co-op or classroom activity. All in all, this looks like an very well-rounded, extremely enjoyable, and solidly chronological approach to history

    The text is available spiral-bound in the first edition or in paperback or hardcover in the revised version. the Activity Book is a bound paperback and is the revised version.
