    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.

    Start ‘em young with this kid-size, real wood acoustic guitar from Hohner. Nylon strings are easier on young fingers than standard steel strings, and the geared tuning system is the same type used on full-size guitars. 30” length is a good size for young children, and it comes with a song book and color stickers to make learning the basics a little easier.

    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 is a guide to developmentally appropriate activities in many learning areas – home life/social emotional, math/manipulatives, art/music, science/sensory, language/literacy, outdoor/gross motor, and field trip suggestions. Very little prep is needed to do the activities, just gather the supplies and books listed for a complete introduction with young children or accompaniment to your math and phonics/reading for kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade. Each month (September through May) incorporates a theme and a character trait into the activities, and is 3-hole punched so you can place the pages in a binder for easy access and storage. Printables are included and step-by-step instructions will make it easy for any parent to work through the activities. You should plan on 2 to 4 activities per day, but plan for what fits into your schedule – “flexibility” is the name of this game. 296 pgs, pb.

     

      Within the packet of pages, you will receive a monthly overview printed on card stock that can be hung up so mom can see what they will be covering during the month – a good visual and planning tool. Sections on the monthly overview list the activities to be done in each area of learning. An Introduction to the program explains the philosophy and a list of what will be covered by theme and character trait. The rest of the pages have beautiful photographs, and step-by-step instructions for implementation.

      Let me give you a sampling of one month of the program. The theme for September is “The World I Live In,” and the character trait is “wonder.” Mom’s Toolbox is the first part of every month and this is where some special resources or items will be listed. In September the “Private Eye” loupe and the book Global Art by Mary Ann Kohl are mentioned. Anything found in the “Mom’s Toolbox” section would be good to get your hands on for incorporation later in the lesson. Home Life and Social/Emotional is the first activity section for September and includes the activities of using balloons and a laundry basket to ‘take a hot air balloon ride,’ make a hot air balloon snack, practice your manners by saying please/thank you, clearing dishes after a meal, and planning an emergency exit plan for your home. You can tell already that not all activities will work for all ages, but that’s the beauty – you can adapt as you need to, pick-and-choose as you see fit. The book list for September includes Hot Air, A House is a House for Me, Can You Hear It, Frog and Toad, and He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands. Language and Literacy for September includes tactile letter practice, children developing their own story, and making a book. Math and Manipulatives include activities such as counting and swinging, making a spindle box (counting box), making shapes, a nature math book, and playing a water bottle marble game. Science and Sensory will have your little ones exploring outdoors with simple tools like magnifiers, binoculars, nature guides, etc., making a nature journal and a pendulum, cooking up a batch of herbal tea play dough and creating nature scenes, making an artistic pond, and make a nesting set using cans. Art and Music includes using chicken wire to use as a weaving loom with fabric scraps, making a painting on a long piece of butcher paper, sculpting clay tree faces, using coffee filters to create artistic reproductions, making salt and mirror art, and learning the song, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.” Gross Motor and Outside has activities to develop ball skills and play games like Squish the bug, Hit the Hula Hoop, Wonder-Ball and running an obstacle course. Field Trip suggestions are touring the local news station or grocery store. At the end of each month is a supply list so you can see everything at a glance for easier preparation; most items will be things from around your home. A page for monthly memories and two planning pages are included at the end of the month, as well.

      Throughout each month, on every page, are photographs of the activities and children performing the tasks mentioned on the pages. Each month follows a similar format, so it’s pretty easy to get into a routine that fits your lifestyle. The Printables are on card stock and include photos, game instructions and game pieces, and other items that are mentioned during the monthly activities.

      Intended to give some guidance but not dictate the schedule, Year of Playing Skillfully can become a partner for you and your family as you begin the educational journey with your young learners. ~ Donna

    Neither intensive nor too informal, this curriculum strikes an excellent balance in beginning instruction. Lessons focus on reading skills, but also incorporate math, science, Bible, art, character development, creative thinking and childrens literature. There are 26 thematic units total, with each unit taking five days to complete. Daily lessons will take 60-90 minutes.

    Beginning reading lessons are systematic and thorough, using tactile, visual and auditory methods to teach children letters and letter sounds. The corresponding letter flashcards are beautifully illustrated with animals and other items from Gods creation. Letters are not introduced in alphabetical order, but in an order to facilitate early blending into words (for early reinforcement of phonetic skills) and to correspond with elements of creation. (For example, S is introduced first along with a science lesson about the Sun. Students also construct a sundial, make raisins, paint a sun and see how, like the sun, Jesus is the light of the world.) Textured letters are integral to the lessons (see below), as are the flashcards. Handwriting is also incorporated as are various games, songs, drawing, cut & paste, and other reinforcing activities. By lesson 6, children begin blending letter sounds into simple words. By the end, they'll be reading simple stories. Each unit also has a recommended children's literature title. Math concepts include counting, writing numerals, charts and graphs, sequencing, comparing, classifying, ordinal numbers, fractions (whole and half), time, money, and simple addition/subtraction. Science topics match the illustrations on the alphabet flashcards and consist of objects that can be observed in nature.

    The Limited Ed. Package includes the Teacher's Manual; student sheets; alphabet flashcards, Lauri lower-case alphabet puzzle; What Really Happened to the Dinosuars?; For the Children's Sake; Cuisenaire Rods; Cuisenaire Rods Alphabet Book; Say Hello to Classical Music; an inflatable globe and the MFW Kindergarten Literature Collection with 26 stories to be used with the units. Ant Hill and Butterfly Garden kits are not included in the kits but highly recommended for customers in the 48 states. Both insect kits are also available from us separately.

       Perfect for anyone old enough to hold a ukulele, these books start at the very beginning of learning the instrument. Both books come with a handy chord chart poster and follow a nearly identical path for the first 12-13 lessons, learning about 17 chords and ending with rhythms and rests, but where How to Play Ukulele (#64351) ends, Progressive Beginner Ukulele continues for 7 more lessons, where students will learn 19 more chords as well as elements of music like diminished chords, Major 7th chords, and triplet rhythms. Progressive Beginner Ukulele has color pages and a link to online access for video & audio files for all the songs and lessons, whereas How to Play Ukulele (#64351) has black and white pages with a DVD of video lessons and a play-along CD (video/audio content is the same as the online content, except that the CDs and DVDs do not contain the additional tracks for the extra lessons in Progressive Beginner Ukulele book.) Both books provide a quality beginner understanding of the instrument that is perfect for children and adults alike. Softcover. – Laura

     Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. Children are never too young to be saturated in God’s word and this CD is a delightful way to fill your children’s hearts and minds with Scripture. You will appreciate the quality of the multiple musical instruments and the sweet sounds of children’s voices singing 85 verses from the Old and New Testament. Music styles range from the soft, melodic lullaby to a more up-tempo toe-tapping country sound; this may become your favorite family “go to” music for the home and car. Scriptures from NIV Bible. Truly an auditory pleasure for all ages! Twenty songs, approximately one hour in length. ~ Deanne

     If you’ve ever wanted to learn the drums, here’s a great tool to get you started! While I admit I’m no drummer, after watching the video tracks and following along in the book I can clearly see how this program would easily translate to a solid foundation of playing percussion when followed thoroughly and practiced frequently. Starting with the high hats, students will learn to play simple beats, slowly adding in coordination drills and other drums one by one before moving to more complicated rhythms and syncopation. The black and white book doesn’t look like much with few photos and simple sheet music, but after flipping through the course and watching the included videos, I am definitely tempted to try it out myself! Note: The video disc should be played on a computer, and some video tracks (I found 2) were mislabeled and did not match the songs in the book. 67 softcover pages. – Laura

    Music history was probably one of the most difficult parts of my musical education. The textbooks were always so dry and seemed irrelevant. This, thankfully, is not the case here. This book presents the history of music with an approachable mix of material: an occasional look at the science behind sound and how waves and pitches travel, informative text, quotations, hands-on activities, songs and playlists on YouTube accessible via QR codes (Parents, you may want to check that the links are still valid before handing them over to students. QR codes are easily scan-able via free apps available through phone or tablet’s app store. Just search for QR Code Reader).

    As the text progresses through history, the focus is on analyzing the influences and the components of music. Start with folk music which came to the U.S. from England as well as songs sung by slaves and then progress to the patriotic music during the late 1700s and early 1800s. Move to the jazz, blues and country sounds of the Roaring Twenties; the effects of the World Wars on music as well as social justice issues during the 1950s, and the evolution of rock and hip hop and lastly, to modern-day music.

    While not divided into any sort of lesson plans, this could make for a fun course of study if your children are particularly music minded. Parents could even use this as a great supplemental resource to an American history program with a little planning ahead. 120 softcover pages. – Laura

    Let’s face it: the songs in instrument-learning books, while valuable, are not very fun to play. What IS fun to play is a song that everyone knows and can play or sing along to. That’s where this book comes in! If your student wishes to learn some songs that are a little more fun or wants to take a step towards “real” songs after some of their lesson books, these are the perfect fit. For each song, there are tabs (a notation method that shows which fret to play on which string: highly popular for learning to play more popular songs), chords, and even sheet music for your more classically trained student. Your student will be able to play old standards like The Farmer in the Dell, Jesus Loves Me, The Bear Went Over the Mountain, and 56 other songs. In addition, we also carry the guitar version of this book (#060680), so if one child plays the guitar and one plays ukulele, they will be able to play duets together, making for some great family fun and bonding time! Parents, the music for the song Ninety-Nine Bottles of Beer is included, so you may want to do a little creative editing and change the lyrics to “pop” before handing the book over to your child. Includes a chord dictionary for quick reference. 83 softcover pages. – Laura

    Using familiar songs to remember grammar rules is nothing new to language learning. But when you are learning a subject as tough as Latin, it helps even more. Add this book with CD to any Latin program to help your children remember the various declensions and conjugations. The tunes are familiar: Bingo, If You're Happy and You Know It, Yankee Doodle and the Wheels on the Bus are a few. I think this would even be helpful to more advanced Latin students. The book states the songs can be used with younger kids (age 4) as well as older students. The songs can be used to introduce your little ones to Latin, but it may not make sense to them until they have has some practice with the written language. You could have older kids make up their own songs to remember other rules! While the songs are catchy, the book has clear and simple pages to go with each song/rule. There are 29 songs/rules in all. The CD has both the Classical (songs 1-29) and the Ecclesiastical (songs 30-58) pronunciations followed by music only versions that you could use to test the kids to see if they can sing the rules without the words. A helpful audio component to round out any quality Latin course. 33pp, pb, with audio CD . ~ Sara

    "Blow gently, like you are blowing a feather" is how Penny Gardner explains to children that they are playing a recorder not a saxophone. She explains the very basics of reading music in a way that is easy to follow for kids and their parents who may not have any musical background. Children learn songs they know like, Mary Had a Little Lamb and Row, Row, Row Your Boat. You get advice on how to practice and what principles are harder than others, so you don't feel badly if you have difficulty catching on to some things. The songs advance in their levels of difficulty towards the end of the book so students can master each skill before moving on. This is a nice and simple introduction to reading music for any school age student. The spiral binding makes it easy to handle too. 30 pgs, pb. ~ Sara
