    While I am a little too young to remember Jon Gnagy, I can appreciate good art and good value! The kit includes a black-and-white 64-page instructional book, fifteen 12" x 18" sheets of drawing paper, a 12" x 18" drawing board, 3 sketching pencils, a carbon pencil, a kneaded eraser, a tortillion (or "stomp"), a piece of gray chalk, two pieces of black chalk, and a sandpaper pad. Armed with these materials, it's time to investigate the book, a short course in learning how to draw. The first pages focus on the basics: using your pencil, stomp, and chalk to make different tones. Then you practice drawing lines, shapes, and forms (3-D shapes). A "crash course" on composition and perspective follow. Then you jump into the lessons, which guide you in six or less steps to making a picture, complete with shading and texture. The steps are somewhat lengthy, with the goal being a very realistic, three-dimensional representation. Thankfully, the example drawing progresses with you. The lesson subjects increase in complexity, incorporating more complex shapes and a range of subject matter, including pumpkins, a steamboat, snow-covered landscape, a Great Dane, and a Mexican boy. The end of the book provides guidance on drawing the human figure in action. While I have some issues with the layout and readability of the book (all instructions are in three languages, which makes every page seem crowded), this is the only kit I have seen that includes all of your supplies, gets you up and running quickly, and emphasizes shading to produce a "finished" look. – Jess

    Spelling drills can be boring, but make them into a computer game and suddenly kids will be begging to do them! This CD-ROM is full of games that provide spelling review and practice in a fun way. In a futuristic world, three creatures are vacationing on Planet Islandia when the mayor begs them to help him solve a local crime. Mumblers are stealing books, and it's up to the three pals to discover which Mumbler has taken which book. To get clues about the identity of the Mumbler, players travel to other islands, looking for clues. To actually "find" a clue, players must pass levels by conquering all the words in a word list (usually from the same word families). Players must fill in blanks, spell whole words, recognize spelling patterns and word families, use phonics and rhyming words, edit misspelled words, and unscramble jumbled words. But they don't just sit there typing words; players must shoot letter balls out of cannons, spell words correctly to cross a troll-guarded bridge, and complete other fun and action-packed activities to progress. Once players pass a level, they get a clue about the Mumbler, like what kind of hat he wore, the color of his shirt, etc. At the end, they'll be able to use the clues to select from many different Mumblers and find the culprit. It's a pretty fun game, with three different islands to explore as you're attaining clues. There's a word editor, so you can even add your own unique words to the game, though with 140 spelling lists, 29 storybooks, word puzzles, and over 1700 words, the game covers all the beginning words and word families that new spellers usually cover. Several players can store their progress at a time, so the game is good for more than one student. This is definitely a game worth checking out if you're having trouble getting your child excited about spelling.

    Chinese brush painting and calligraphy are such a unique and appealing art form, but it is difficult to find a good introductory book that is designed for a young person or true beginner. This one is the best I've seen yet, written for children ages 7 and up and recommending only basic supplies. In fact, the book recommends starting with tempera paint, not ink, while you learn the basic brushstrokes! The lessons and exercises emphasize fundamentals, starting with how to hold the brush properly, then how to make basic brushstrokes, including the dragged dot, the bone stroke and the vertical hook. Students apply these strokes to some calligraphy characters, including numbers and plant names, "orchid" and "bamboo." After getting a handle on the brushstrokes, students then begin learning how to depict some classic subjects, including orchids, bamboo, pine trees, landscapes, insects and birds. Each of these is broken into parts, so they learn how to paint orchid leaves, then how to create the blooms. The book also encourages the student to practice on newsprint, then transition to rice paper as they become more confident. Material-wise, it's pretty easy to get started here; you'll just need black tempera paint, newsprint, bamboo brushes (or watercolor brushes with natural hair), and a few other household items. If your student is interested in learning more about this art form, this is the best resource I've seen to learn the fundamentals in a non-intimidating way. 64 pgs, hc. – Jess

    This book by Michael Driscoll introduces young students to poetry and famous poets in a way they will find interesting and fun. The first part of the book describes the various types of poetry like nursery rhymes, villanelle, limerick, narrative verse, ballad, sonnet, free verse, and more. Each type of poem is described quickly and clearly, and then the book contains famous examples of that type of poem. Kids can either read the poems themselves, or play the accompanying CD when prompted. The audio CD includes all the poems in the book read alternately by a man and a woman with pleasant voices. Colorful boxes tell readers when to play a track on the CD, as well as sharing extra information about the poems or their authors. "Words for the Wise" boxes are included on each page, defining words in the poems that children may not be familiar with. "If You're a Poet, You Should Know It" boxes are also included throughout the book, with vocabulary words related to poetry defined (like stanza, alliteration, etc.). After all the types of poetry are introduced, explained, and exampled, the second half of the book is dedicated to famous poets. A quick biography of each poet is included and then excerpts from that person's poetry are shared. These excerpts (sometimes full poems) are also included on the CD. Text boxes on the pages give a summary of the poems and explain confusing parts. Fun, colorful, little drawings accompany these poems (as well as those earlier in the book) and add to the charm of the book. Homer, Shakespeare, Blake, Dickinson, Kipling, Sandburg, Heaney, Angelou, and many more are included in this section of the book. Overall, 64 famous poems are included in the book (and on the CD). With the easy-to-understand explanations and numerous examples, young students will be grasping and enjoying poetry in no time. Book includes a listing of all 64 tracks on the CD and measures 10.25" x 10.25". 96 pages, hc. ~ Rachel

    Around here, we like things that just work and get the job done, and are easy-to-use. I guess that's why we liked this product. It takes the time, frustration, and work out of creating endless paper timelines, or even using a blank one by letting you create it all on a computer, and than make as many copies as you need. Easy Timeline Creator gives the user a host of options and flexibility to create any sort of timeline. Basically, the program leads the user through a series of windows, through which they determine the title of their timeline, choose a starting and ending date, select the frequency and distance between the tick marks (years, decades, centuries, etc.). Once the basics have been settled, the user can check categories to be represented on the timeline, including literature, science, space, or different time periods or civilizations such as Greece, Rome, or the Middle Ages. Selecting these will place an item in the timeline with a special icon in front of it to clearly designate it as a development or event in that category. Then you're ready to add events. To add an event, just type it in, add a date, or starting and ending dates, and the category you've chosen that it belongs in, and you're set. You can also change the font type or color to really separate events and make them stand out if you want. Once you've added your events, you can see your timeline on the screen with your events placed on it with their small colored icons. At this point you can add clipart, either from the 100 images included on the CD-ROM, or any of your own choosing. You can click and drag or resize images and place them wherever you'd like, or delete it again if you want. There are also a number of options for printing, including the paper orientation and a fit to page option. As soon as you're happy, print it out, and voila - you have a custom timeline to fit whatever you're studying. With such an easy-to-use interface, and simple steps, this will cut timeline-making time in half - and likely inspire you to use it often! Students can even make their own timelines. I just love it when someone develops a product that's timesaving, easy-to-use, and does just what it should. It's about time for a product like this!

    A terrible dragon has been spotted on the outskirts of town and now the villagers are fearful. Little do they know that the beast is nothing more than a lethargic character who would much rather discuss poetry with a young book loving boy. When a valiant knight comes to town to slay the dragon, the boy must talk sense into the knight or else it might be the end of the dragon. A charming tale filled with wit and fun. This story has been entertaining children since 1938 and is sure to be loved by yours as well. 64 softcover with occasional black and while illustrations. – Laura
