    When a young Egyptian boy is orphaned, his life changes. Although he has always desired to become an apprentice to the goldsmith in whose shop he works, his half-brother, now his guardian, apprentices him to the stone cutters instead. The mystery begins as he learns a secret that may explain his half-brother's seemingly unearned wealth...

    Little Pilgrim's Progress maintains all the allegorical messages, characters and places of the original. Helen Taylor wanted a younger audience (elementary and middle school children) to profit from the allegory as much as countless generations of "grown-up" Christians had before them. Accordingly, the language and vocabulary is more accessible and the main character is a young boy rather than a man. See more details on the corresponding Adventure Guide, which examines everything from literary elements to biblical truths found in the book.

    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.

    "Many, many years ago, in Sorrento there lived a boy named Giovanni who had no mother and no father. He dressed in rags and begged for his food and slept in doorways. But he was happy, and he could do something wonderful. He could juggle." This is how the old French legend begins. This clown who made people smile his whole life is sure to make you smile as well! Your heart will be warmed with the miracle at the end of the story as Giovanni does his last performance before a statue of Our Lady and the Christ Child. Tomie dePaola is the author and illustrator, and he has painstakingly reproduced this old story as close to its original telling as possible. Accompanied by Renaissance-inspired watercolor paintings that are full of vibrant color and cartoon-like characters. elise

    Curious by nature, Adara is not content with the docile lifestyle she is expected to live as a young Hebrew girl. She longs to have the same freedoms as the men folk. She daydreams of learning to read and write, a privilege offered only to Jewish boys. More than anything though, she yearns to travel outside the confines of the gated village where she lives with her family. To Adara, life is as predictable as the turning of a wheel. That is until one morning, with the blast of a trumpet, life as Adara knows it changes forever. Note: This is a fictionalized telling of the story of Naaman and Elisha, found in Kings II, Chapter 5. There is some rough language scattered throughout. You may wish to "censor" with a marker before handing this one over to your younger readers. ~ Rachel P.

    What's a mom to do? There's troubling waters ahead and you want your children to be armed with a scriptural approach and a biblical perspective. Not all moms would write a Bible study, but Sandi Queen did, and Queen Homeschool fans will welcome this thoroughly biblical study on this hard-to-talk-about subject. Designed for young adults (note that this does not mean just young ladies), the study starts with dictionary definitions of the "P" word (and related words) then progresses to a biblical study of all aspects of the topic. There is a continual emphasis on guarding one's heart and, subsequently, one's behavior and looking to the Lord for guidance and strength. Designed as a consumable, space is provided for writing biblical answers as well as personal responses to the Bible verses and copywork. Written from a biblically conservative viewpoint, some difficult topics are covered – lust, adultery, divorce, avoiding a pattern for divorce, modesty/appearance, physical/emotional purity, and dealing with temptation (such as found in music, reading material, friends). 45 pgs, pb ~ Janice

    From Arnold Ytreeide, author of Jotham's Journey, comes Bartholomew's Passage, another family advent story. The story follows Bartholomew, a young boy whose village is ransacked by Roman soldiers, as he travels through Israel searching for his family—through slavery, suffering, and adventurous escape. He finds his family one fateful night and introduces them to the Son of God born in the manger in Bethlehem. The book is divided into sections to be read one each day of the four weeks of the Advent season, with extra material and scripture for discussion at the end of each section. The story, meant to be read over the entire Advent season, is long with small two-color illustrations at the beginning of each section. It is not a picture book, but when used as a companion to Advent traditions, read aloud to the family by the light of the Advent candles, Bartholomew's Passage will be a meaningful reminder of God's great love and great gift to us in Jesus. A brief history of Advent customs and a chart of Advent dates until 2080 make this book easy to implement even for those unfamiliar with Advent traditions. Bartholomew's Passage includes violence and tragedy that may need to be summarized or skipped over for the youngest children, but it is the author's intent (as he states in his note to parents) that "the point is not to cover up the dark side of life but rather to show how the love of God and His Son Jesus Christ is the light of our lives." ~ Rachel D.

    Beginning the fourth Sunday before Christmas, many families set aside a few minutes a day to celebrate Advent and zero in on the true reason for the season. This wonderful story is designed to be used during Advent but really could just be read and enjoyed like a typical book. For each day of Advent, the book provides a short chapter of a story about a young boy whose family were shepherds during the time of Jesus' birth. Due to Jotham's poor attitude and a misunderstanding, Jotham is separated from his family and must travel across Israel in search of them. He faces many dangers but also meets many new friends. Ultimately, Jotham is reunited with his family on Christmas Eve, just in time for them all to witness the birth of Christ together. It's a charming tale, full of adventure and lessons, and is ideal for the whole family to read aloud. Each chapter probably takes about 10-15 minutes to read and usually concludes with a scripture verse that ties in with the story as well as a small, 1-2 paragraph devotional. Whether you use it to celebrate Advent in the traditional way or just read it for fun, this story is entertaining and a great reminder of what Christmas is really all about.

    Growing up, if I was given historical fiction presented in clear language for my age level, I was hooked in a matter of minutes. KidVentures presents four Bible stories in this same manner. Trouble Times Ten features an Israelite boy named Ben who is afraid of water. When Moses tells his family that they need to cross the Red Sea to freedom, will he be able to trust God or will he be left behind? Ruled Out tells the story of Ethan who lives with the people who made it out of Egypt. Moses has been up on Mount Sinai for a while, and the people are starting to change, which scares Ethan. Galen and Goliath tells the story of Galen, a young Philistine who is told to kill a young boy to prove his bravery and loyalty. Trouble comes when Galen must decide if he wants to honor the giant Goliath or the God of the Israelites. The Prophet's Kid tells the story of Ezra, who just wants to have fun. He goes to a meeting he isn't allowed to attend, which lands him in a heap of trouble that even causes someone's life to be at risk!

    All these stories are bound into a 313-page softcover book that includes a parent/teacher guide filled with discussion questions, background information, and learning activities. Great for Bible studies or recreational reading. – Laura

    Having a close relationship with your daughter is very important. Every child needs someone to look up to, and a girl's mom is the ideal person to be a mentor to her. The better relationship you keep with your daughter, the more comfortable she will be asking you questions and talking to you about her life. This book was created to help bring you and your daughter closer together. Spending time together, of course, is an essential part of having a good relationship, and this book allows you to get together and discuss important aspects of a girl's life and pass along your Christian values. This book covers those hard-to-broach subjects including her changing body, relationships, friendships with boys, and love nature. You and your daughter can discuss the value of good books, life's work, ideals, the Christian life, repentance, trusting Jesus as your savior, and the importance of prayer. It will also help your daughter to develop character traits such as obedience, modesty, truthfulness, and a sunny disposition. The 32 chapters provide discussion questions for each chapter of Beautiful Girlhood, and also incorporate Scripture into your study with Bible activities and life applications. There are also inspirational quotes, writing topics, and blank pages for journaling so that your daughter can record what she has learned to make a cherished keepsake of your time together. ~ Stephanie

When the young men are captured, only one survives Andersonville Confederate prison. The story is based on a true story that has been passed down through a family.

Additional Bible study tools are discussed in a bonus appendix.

    As our daughters grow into young women, our greatest desire for them is that they continue to develop and mature in their own personal walk with God. With the focus on living life as God intended right from the start, this book takes a serious look at a young lady's relationship with God. This book begins with the foundation that God chose each of us and has plans for our lives. It emphasizes building a relationship with God, then explores a girl's relationship with her church family, friends, parents, boys, non-Christians, and the world. Each chapter focuses on each topic from a Biblical perspective. Intermingled "True Stories" represent real life application of the reading, and each chapter concludes with a short Bible study further exploring the ideas. The Bible studies focus on one set of verses, with short answer and multiple choice questions, and prayer points.

    This engaging, practical book is a valuable resource for the young ladies in your family, or for a "girl's only" Bible study. (My only caveat is this book uses British terminology. This does not distract from the overall teaching, however.). The NIV (1984) Bible version is used for verses within the text; however, the Bible study section is flexible for use with your Bible of choice. 122 pgs, pb. ~Deanne

    “Step into the deep, young man,” the first words of this tween devotional urge. This is a collection of 100 devotionals which challenges boys during those crucial transition years and encourages them to make this spiritual journey their own. Each reading highlights a few verses of Scripture followed by a brief explanatory and encouraging passage. On the opposite page is a directed question with a manageable amount of lines for your boy to write a response—encouragement to stay brief and to the point. This is a meaty but digestible examination of living a Christian life filled with personal application. Note: although the intended audience is male, most of the devotionals would seem to apply to either gender. A handy 5” x 7” size. 201 pp, sc. ~ Ruth
