    By Penny Gardner, author of Charlotte Mason Study Guide, this book is an excellent introduction to the recorder. Created for children, and non-musically-inclined adults, Penny presents the nine-note recorder method in an easy to learn, step-by-step approach. In the front of the book are the finger positions, instruction on how to read music, and tips for playing the recorder comfortably. To start with, only the three notes B, A, and G are introduced, along with thirteen songs to practice on before the next notes are brought into play. From there, you proceed to learn the rest of the notes, while practicing various songs along the way. In all, students learn 147 songs and over 50 duets and rounds, with a mix of children's songs, folk songs, early music, classics, Native American music, multicultural pieces, and Christmas songs. As an added bonus, the back cover pops into a stand, so you can easily display the music. - Stephanie

    That proverbial talk about the “birds and the bees.” You know you need to do it. Teaching your children about God’s plan for sex and all the male/female interaction that leads up to it is part of what it means to bring up a child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. And you want to do it – sort of. It’s just that it’s so very uncomfortable – and you don’t know what to say – and there might be questions asked that make you ashamed or guilty. . .  Dennis and Barbara Rainey (parents of six) of Family Life Ministries know you need “a plan” and they’ve provided a lovely one – a getaway weekend kit complete with instructions for you, guidelines for what to do, excellent speakers to get the difficult words out in the open by offering interesting audio sessions, an engaging format, a solid study of Biblical values, and enjoyable scripture songs.

      The goal of this program is to encourage and empower parents to discuss the difficult topics of intimacy, sexual behavior, and personal feelings that are facing their children as they enter the preteen years. To give parents the tools they need to both challenge their sons and daughters as they enter the pathway to Christian adulthood as well as provide the foundation for future discussions and sharing. To build a mentoring relationship with your children that continues past the weekend and into all the years leading up to adulthood.

      Preteen? Isn’t that jumping the gun a bit for the birds and the bees? Not in today’s culture. It’s literally everywhere around us – and now in ways unimagined by all previous generations. This program is designed to set the stage for a close parent/child relationship as the child moves into this period. Topics are handled biblically, carefully, and tastefully. Some topics are left optional for the parent.

      A weekend getaway. That’s the general setting. One child – with the parent all to himself (boys with fathers; girls with mothers) – doing an activity of his choice that he loves to do and spending time listening to “talks” and working through study material together. It’s a wonderful affirmation that the love of the parent can transcend the upcoming changes that the child will be experiencing.

      There are five audio sessions and one optional session: 1) the adolescent experience, 2) how to handle peer pressure, 3) changes that are ahead (God’s design for sex), 4) purity (protecting sexual innocence), and 5) dating (properly engaging with the opposite sex). The optional session covers really delicate issues (masturbation, pornography, and same-sex attraction) and can be inserted after the fourth session and before the fifth if the parent chooses,

      The Getaway Kit provides the necessary framework: a tour guide for the parent, travel journal for the preteen including 25 follow-up devotions, CDs containing 5 sessions, scripture memory songs and downloadable MP3s of all sessions.

      The Tour Guide is for the parent – basically a leader’s guide for this very focused Bible study. This little manual includes sections on planning the getaway, an itinerary for the weekend, a suggested schedule, preparation checklists (and needed supplies), guidelines for writing a note to your son/daughter, and very specific suggestions for praying for your son/daughter. Also included is a page-for-page reproduction of the Travel Journal (accent color rather than full color) so you can work through it with your son/daughter.

      The Travel Journal is for your son/daughter and is designed as a companion for the experiences of the weekend. With a travel theme and an engaging appearance, it provides a place to write notes (from the talks), thoughts, and answers to questions as well as the guidelines for godly Christian living provided by this study material. There are 25 follow-up devotions that continue with a similar theme and help strengthen the biblical core of the young adult’s understanding of the various issues. This is a nicely done keepsake book with a hardcover, full-color graphics, and an elastic strap for place-keeping.

      The CD Set provides the core material for the heart of the weekend and the program. Eight CDs provide the weekend talk sessions. These sessions feature scripture memory songs, dramatic vignettes, humorous features, real-life stories from teens and adults, and lots of teaching from parents and experts that have “been there, done that.” Songs are CCM-type of music with understandable lyrics, singable melodies, and full instrumentation backup.

      Having “that” talk with your children may never be entirely comfortable, but this kit gives you a plan; the certainty of godly, biblical content; and the promise of enjoyable memories.

    Another great songbook for Boomwhackers, this contains children's songs with color-coded music notes to match the Boomwhackers Tubes and lyrics directly beneath the colorful staff. It has twenty favorite songs like Old MacDonald, The Muffin Man, and On Top of Old Smokey. The colored notes allow anyone to easily play the songs and learn about reading music at the same time. Some of the songs in this book are the same as those in the Building Blocks Series, but the difference is that these songs use actual notes on a bar that are different colors and the other series uses colored squares without a bar. This book also does not have detachable charts for playing; in fact, the book measures only 5.5" x 8.5" and includes all the notes for a song on one page. It's a handy little book full of fun, easy-to-play songs that any Boomwhacker player would enjoy. It is designed to be used with the C Major Diatonic Scale Set.

    This book brings the culture and beauty of orchestra music to children by sharing the history of the art, describing the instruments involved, giving fun facts about different composers and music, and providing samples of the music on the accompanying CD. Orchestra Bob, a cartoon gentleman, is the guide through the book. The first half of the book tells about the different composers of orchestra music, and the second half describes the physical layout of an orchestra and the different instruments involved. The first half is broken into the Baroque, Classical Music, Romantic, and Modern Eras, highlighting famous composers from each time period. The book describes how this music became part of and affected each era and shows how each composer affected orchestra music. Orchestra Bob points out when to play certain tracks on the accompanying CD, which give famous samples of many of the composers' works. The book does a good job of highlighting the importance of each composer, but it does not give a thorough biography of each life, more of a general description of the way they affected the art and a list of their greatest works. Colorful text boxes, fun cartoon illustrations, and famous quotes make the book interesting and fun to read, and the music from the CD lets children connect the composers with their creations. The second half of the book covers the instruments themselves and is broken down into string, woodwind, brass, and percussion sections, as well as keyboard instruments. Readers see an illustration of an orchestra and then go on to learn about the specific instruments involved. The book explains how each instrument is played, points out special features, and gives some details of each instrument's history and development. In this section, Orchestra Bob instructs readers to listen to special tracks on the CD which provide examples of the music made from featured instruments in actual works from different composers. He also points out how to listen for the different instruments that have been discussed. This section is as colorful and fun as the first, with actual photographs of each instrument covered. An index of composers and musical terms is included, as well as a list of the 41 musical selections on the CD (over an hour of music). It provides a great way to listen to the music of the orchestra while simultaneously learning about the history, instruments, and composers. ~ Rachel S.

He gave freely to the poor and helped to spread Christianity through Bohemia. The book text is the carol itself, with a modern introduction, written in 1853 from music that was first published in 1582. This book is beautifully illustrated with lively characters and gorgeous backgrounds. On the last page is the music and all 5 verses of the song. 30pp, hc (with jacket,) 10.5”x10.5”. ~Sara
