    If you're looking for a gift for an artsy little one – boom! - here it is. Packaged in a space-saving tube, you'll find a good-quality, plain canvas smock, 8 chubby short-handled brushes in a variety of sizes, and three nesting paint or water cups with lids. I love the thickness of the natural canvas smock, and it includes stitched pockets to hold all of the brushes in the front as well. Young artists can use it as-is, or paint their own custom design on the smock. Just add some tempera paints and paper and they'll be all set. – Jess

    This book is now in 2nd ed. and chapters include What is Astronomy, The Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, The Moon, Mars, Space Rocks, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Kuiper Belt and the Dwarf Planets, and Stars, Galaxies, and Space Travel. The last few chapters are where you see a change in the chapter sequence from the first edition – chapters 11 and through 14. There are still interesting activities and projects including a model solar system made of balloons, pinhole eclipse viewing box, making a compass, understanding the moon phases, and creating an astrometer. Children are sure to remember the information they are learning between hearing the text, performing the hands-on activities, and completing the journal pages.

    The text is formatted differently from first edition – it begins with an explanation of the text, activities, course website, notebooking journals, and science kit in clear bold print. Each lesson is full of new photography and illustrations and interspersed with scripture. Blue “Think about this” and “Wisdom from Above” boxes give special attention to the Creator, and orange questions are scattered throughout the lessons for students to think about and explain. Activities for each lesson include instructions and illustrations for completion. Every chapter is rounded out with “What do you Remember?” where students recall information from the lesson. The appendices include a lesson-by-lesson supply list for hands-on activities and an answer key for “What do you Remember?” questions.

    Notebooking journals are now in full color and color-coordinated. A suggested schedule is in the front of each notebooking journal, but you decide how many times a week to do your curriculum. The schedule lists daily assignments (71 total), and the lists have items listed in 3 different colors – green for textbook reading assignments, blue for notebook assignments, and brown for science kit activities. Pages in the notebooking journal are formatted for students to answer questions and complete activities. A review of the inner planets now follows lesson 8, review of the outer planets follows lesson 12, and a final review follows lesson 14. “Take it Further” pages are now drawing, making lists of books you’ve read, movies you’ve watched, additional experiments you may have completed, and making scrapbooking pages. Copywork is still included and coloring pages in the junior notebooking journals. There are answer keys in the back for vocabulary crossword puzzles and final review questions.

    Because of the content changes, first edition products won’t work with the 2nd edition. Experiments are different (four of them are unchanged), so lab supplies do vary as well.

    Create your own long lasting, professional looking book! The IlluStory A+ kit contains non-toxic, washable markers, writing pages, instructions, hints, a story planner, and a postage paid envelope. Write your story, then illustrate it. When you're finished, mail it in (at no additional charge) for completion and production. They'll typeset and bind your book, returning a 7" x 9" hardcover book that even has a place for a dedication. The kit produces an 18 page book, and the author's bio can be placed on the back cover.

    Authors have the choice of either creating their book by hand using the materials in the kit, or producing their book online using the company's website. Working online allows kids to upload photos or scanned images and use digital drawing tools and effects (like speech bubbles, pre-designed backgrounds and more). Designing online also allows them to place more text on each page (there are per-page word limits for hard copy bookmaking). Planning sheets, informational sheets on types of writing and quite a few "story web" graphic organizers flesh out the contents of IlluStory A+ and may be helpful to tie the project in with your current writing curriculum. Next step, the Library of Congress! - Megan

    Perhaps this text was part of my elementary education. The timing fits – and it would explain why the events lovingly memorialized in this publication are still firmly planted in my memory. First published in 1955 and now republished by Beautiful Feet, utilizing the historical accuracy and storytelling ability of Earl Schenck Miers and the amazing illustrations of James Daugherty (full-color, inked drawings), this book takes the reader through tales of adventure, heroism, and patriotism. From Leif's Viking boat explorations of the northeastern coastline to the atom bomb's close to the second World War, you will read about everything in between – explorers, founders, soldiers, adventurers, settlers, inventors, statesmen, educators, and many more – in the fifty stories that make up this 315 pg, paperback book. A worthy addition to your home library or ideal for any literature-based history course or unit study, the author himself sums up its scope: "…everywhere signs of the greatness of God. It is indeed the one truth in which we all believe. It is indeed our richest heritage." ~ Janice

    Each page holds a riddle like: "Your pet lizard has escaped and you've got to find him right away because your parents' guests are due to arrive in thirty minutes! Use the clues to draw a path to your lizard's hiding place." The grid holds pictures of possible hiding places and to figure out which item he's hiding behind, you need to solve the addition problems. Each problem has the form 4 + __ = 8 (W). Using the missing number and directional cues (N, E, W, S) found in parentheses as above, you start at the black star in the grid and travel the appropriate number of spaces in the direction given for each problem.

    Written in the style of Hillyer's Child's Geography of the World, this introductory geography study incorporates lively, current text, recommendations of additional books to enjoy, narration, notebooking, and other fun activities, too! Geography of the earth is approached as if you and your children were taking a journey through and around the earth, learning everything about the Earth as a whole (individual continents and countries will be studied in upcoming volumes). Eleven chapters each focus on a geography topic, including the atmosphere, the continents, the oceans, seasons, climate, weather, the structure of Earth, plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, latitude, and longitude. The author recommends spending two days on each chapter; one to snuggle up and read the text together, and the other to spend on the activities. Taking basic information like ocean currents, the rotation of the earth and plate tectonics and presenting them to children in an exciting way could have been a challenge, but the author has done a very impressive job here and has taken great pains to present the information in a personal way that children will understand and often be awed by. Occasionally the text is broken up by a "Tell the folks at home all about it!" which acts as a narration prompt. The narration jogs kids' memories about what they have read so far and helps them to remember it by describing it in their own words. To take this the next step, the author recommends that you and your child or children pretend you're on the phone while they tell you what they've "seen" in their journey. Each chapter's text ends with a "Postcard Home" which further embodies the "journey" theme. Postcard templates are found in the back of the book, or can be printed from online resources.  For each chapter, children will create their own postcard of the journey, in which they draw what they have learned on the front and describe it on the back, as if they were describing it to a recipient. Dressing up the ordinary "notebooking" as making postcards is a novel idea that will undoubtedly be a little more fun! After this point in every chapter, there is a "Reaching Out to His World" section, which ties the concepts from the text into a need that people around the world experience. Suggestions for further research and outreach are included in each one, so you can not only learn about the earth but develop a heart for helping others, too. "Further Explorations" in each chapter list books which tie in to that topic, and each book is listed with a summary and a grade range the book is most appropriate for. Two "Too-Fun-to-Resist Excursions" round out each chapter, and although they're not "required," I can understand why they call them too fun to resist! Some of the activities include mapping the location of shoes found washed up on shore (after containers of them were lost to the sea) to investigate ocean currents, making an edible earth, identifying rocks, doing an "earth dance," making volcanoes, looking for pictures in the shapes of the continents, and much more! These activities have clearly not been "tacked on" just because they are related to the chapter's topic; they are well-chosen and things that kids will definitely enjoy. An appendix at the end of the book contains the postcard templates, geography copywork and maps you will need throughout your journey. What a fun and appealing way to study world geography as a family! I just hope "Vol. 1" means that more are on the way! Jess

    This fun and educational supplement will be a great diversion from boring textbooks and endless amounts of reading! Students will love putting some of their other talents into their history lessons. This book is divided into several sections including Creation, Noah, Tower of Babel, Egypt, China, Joseph and Moses, David, Jonah, and the Trojan Horse. As you can see, it covers many aspects of early history with a good mix of Biblical accounts and other historical events. Each section begins with a drawing of the time period or place, followed by drawing instructions for all different aspects of the picture, and concluding with a page of information about the time period so students can practice their penmanship. For example: Egypt starts with a colored page featuring a pyramid, mummy, and sphinx. The following pages have separate step-by-step drawing instructions (1-3 pages per drawing) for each of those items. The information about Egypt closes the section, written in cursive so students have a model to copy their handwriting after. Sprinkled with interesting facts and Bible verses, this book is sure to bring the ancient times to life. 64 pages. ~ Megan

    "It's just common sense!" Actually, it's the Blue Book Common Sense Reading Program and yes, everything about this program is common sense. A very complete program organized around quality children's literature (like all LLATL programs) and covering phonics, reading, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, handwriting, and higher-order reasoning. Phonics instruction is systematic, introducing a few sounds at a time and providing opportunities to read a "real" (small story book) book which uses those sounds. The literature component - carefully selected children's favorites - reminds students that the reason for all the hard work in phonics is the joy of reading wonderful books. And woven through both of these elements is comprehensive instruction in all aspects of language arts. Relying heavily on Ruth Beechick's principles for teaching reading (including her letter dice activities), the program includes a wide variety of activities appealing to all learning styles. The teacher's manual is a homeschooler's dream with all the work having been done for you, taking you step-by-step through the 36-week program. New skills are listed for each lesson with a materials list included at the beginning. Almost no teacher preparation is needed - you teach as you read. All answers are provided within the lesson. Higher-order thinking activities are italicized. Examples and diagrams are user-friendly including the easy-to-follow references to the Student Activity Book. Each of the four parts (readiness, short vowels, consonant blends and short vowels, and long vowels) concludes with an evaluation for determining your child's readiness for the next level. The Student Activity Book contains the materials (except for household and school supplies) needed for cut and paste, word wheels, flip books, picture sequencing, story-telling puppets, PLUS handwriting pages that teach all upper and lower case letters, numbers, and punctuation. The comfortable, natural handwriting method that isn't exactly traditional, modern, or italic was developed by the authors. This handwriting instruction is coordinated with the phonics and includes pages for children to carefully complete and display or give as gifts.

    The Student Activity Book is consumable, even having an easy-release binding that allows for clean page removal. Even the back cover is put to good use providing the miniature book covers to be added to the personal reading chart that marks the child's progress. 28 separate readers cover short vowels, blends (bridge readers), and long vowels. They are small-sized for little hands and include black-and-white illustrations. Stories are engaging which is a good thing since a week's worth of learning activities are built around them. The student uses puppets to retell the stories, completes sequencing activities with a series of reader-related events, and answers comprehension questions. One interesting aspect of the teacher-student interaction concerning these readers is that the week's lesson starts off with the teacher reading the small book to the child. After several lessons thoroughly covering the new phonics steps and practice reading parts of the story, the student concludes the week with the successful reading of the small book. This is an effective variation of the typical approach because the goal of reading the book is always before the student. The materials packet is a useful collection of color-coded letter and word cards to use for learning and review along with cards used for reinforcement games and, of course, the letter dice (to be assembled from cardstock patterns). While this part of the program is not exactly consumable - you could use the various components again - the components do get a workout. If you are expecting to use the program with another child, you'll want to save these items and covering them with clear contact paper to preserve them would also be a good idea. The program includes the Teacher's Manual, the Student Activity Book, the 28 Readers, and the Materials Packet.

    We sell additional Student Activity Books, Reader Sets, and Material Packets so you can use the program with a second student. Well-known children's literature (Read-Aloud Library) is suggested each week, so at the same time your child is learning phonics, he is also learning other important reading skills such as literal recall, comprehension, predicting outcome, and drawing conclusions. These books are an integral part of the program and the Student Activity Book relies on them. Although usually available at the local library, for your convenience we also sell them. They are listed in order of use. Although this program focuses on first grade skills, it would be possible to use this program with a "ready" kindergartner. It would also work well with a slightly older child who is still a just-getting-started reader. ~ Janice

     This introductory reference guide will appeal to your pictorial learner. First, you’ll get a good beginning grammar overview (parts of speech--including noun and verb phrases, active/passive voice, clauses, conjunctions, direct speech, and confusing words). Parts of speech are identified with text, arrows and colors, though inconsistently applied (Nouns are not always green, for example). Explanations are brief and accented with graphs and cartoon drawings. The second section covers punctuation (periods, commas, question and quotation marks, apostrophes, and those funky and elusive parentheses, dashes, hyphens and ellipses). Finally, get a thumbnail introduction to style (basic genres, sentence- and paragraph level improvements). The book includes a glossary, quiz, and index. Also, access to Quicklinks provides grammar, punctuation and spelling games, quizzes and puzzles. An attention-grabbing way to introduce or remind students of grammar skills. 136 pgs, reinforced sc. ~ Ruth
