    His inventions changed the future of the young American nation, but where was his reward? Join Eli Whitney and find out what it takes to travel the long road to recognition – and why it's worth it in the end. Although originally written in 1953, the ink illustrations and writing style of this book are reminiscent of Eli Whitney's 18th century. History buffs will enjoy the references to famous figures and events, while those who aren't as well-versed will still be able to follow along as characters explain definitions and concepts that readers may not know. 192 pages, soft cover. – Rachel

    In 1831, Alexis de Tocqueville and Gustave de Beaumont spent nine months in the United States studying American prisons on behalf of the French government. Along with the prison system, they studied every aspect of American public and private life-the political, economic, religious, cultural and social life of our young nation. One profound discovery Mr. Tocqueville noted was the leading role of religion with its constitutional separation from government. Mr. Tocqueville wrote about his experiences, first amazing readers in 1835 and 1840, and these writings continue to amaze readers today. This scholarly work features the English translation, translation notes, listing of key terms, appendices, early outlines, drafts, extensive bibliography, and other vital references for the serious student of democracy. Two volume set totals nearly 1700 pgs. SC. ~Deanne

    Maps of the USA introduces young students to each state in the U.S., along with details about each state and facts such as the state bird, flower, population, and area. The reproducible worksheets are pretty open-ended and can be used alongside any history program or state study to take a closer look at each state. The first hundred pages contain two-page spreads on each state, with state facts and black-and-white pictures to color on the left-hand side, and the state itself featured on the right-hand side. The right-hand page contains an outline map of the state itself, with geopolitical information, such as important cities, rivers, geographical features, and neat places to visit in that state. A smaller map of the U.S. is also provided with the featured state shaded in, so the student can see the location of the state in relation to the rest of the nation. These worksheets can be used to make a state notebook, or to use with any number of state activities, and can be colored, labeled, etc. Following the individual state pages are worksheets on the U.S. as a whole, including regions of the U.S. along with a segment of the map and questions for each, maps of the U.S. as a whole, both with and without state names filled in, a states and capitals chart, supplemental word puzzles, and maps featuring waterways, climate zones, and physical features of our nations along with questions for students to answer based on the map. "A U.S. State in Review" page is also included at the end, which can be reproduced and used alongside the individual state worksheets to fill in more facts about the state, draw its outline, and include in a state notebook, if they're making one. Answers included. - Jess

    One thing homeschoolers may miss out on is career testing. The individual career counseling tests that I have seen tend to approach choosing a career on the basis of an individual's values, interests, and perceived aptitudes. I know this is true of one particular Christian organization's career placement service and was also true of the test that was previously supplied in College Majors and Careers (before revision removed it). However, Discover What You're Best At contends with this type of testing. Author Linda Gale points out that it doesn't matter how much you would like to do a certain job if you don't have the ability to do it. It's important that you first select a career that you have the aptitude for. You may not have the particular skills required today (you may have to learn or train for them), but you at least need the potential, or aptitude, for it. No amount of self-examination or self-evaluation can be as objective or realistic as aptitude testing. We tend to color our perception of our abilities according to our desires or, often, we just have a much higher (or lower) opinion of our abilities than is actually warranted. The author relays a story about a young man who was very determined to be a mechanical engineer. When he took this battery of aptitude tests, he scored extremely low on both the mechanical and numerical tests, indicating that pursuing a career in this field would be a struggle for him. As it turned out, his father was a mechanical engineer and both father and son strongly desired that this young man follow in his father's footsteps. Apparently, this was so ingrained in the young man that he never realized his abilities lay elsewhere. After testing and some additional career counseling, he decided to switch his career goals.

    The battery of six tests in this revised book are the National Career Aptitude System tests that have been administered for over twenty years, with apparent success. Only slight changes to the tests have been made over the years, mostly in response to changing technology. And, no, you don't have to pay a lot of money to send them off to be scored for you. The timed tests are self-scoring. Unlike those other career placement tests, this test actually helps you to identify clusters of careers that would fit your aptitudes. Once your tests are scored, you can determine which clusters best define your abilities; then you can scan the list of careers in those clusters. Over 1,100 specific careers are listed and described briefly, along with the clusters they belong in. If you see a career that interests you by cluster, you then look it up in the career listings. Often, these are followed by compatible clusters that you may want to refer back to for additional career choices. At this point, you should consider how well each career fits with your value system, since this will play a major factor in your job satisfaction. This book does provide a list of job-related values to help you identify what your priorities are. You will probably want to find out more about the specifics of each likely job to determine how well it will meet your needs. To this end, the book closes with information about job search and career information sites available on the web, so you can become better informed about your career choices and even apply for a job!

    This will be a very helpful tool for high schoolers unsure of a college major, for those seeking a job right out of high school, and for parents seeking to return to the job market or considering a change in their careers.

    Published in association with The National Gallery of London, this coloring book art resource provides young children with 15 classic paintings to study and color that reflect a wide variety of artistic styles. Each of the art selections are depicted in full-color. On the opposite pages, students are given a simple black-line drawing of the painting that they can color. The art selections also contain some brief background information about the painting or artist. Young artists can use felt-tip markers, crayons, colored pencils or anything else that they like to color. The quality of this softbound resource is excellent, but most young children will probably want to color the drawings that are provided on a flat surface. For this reason, you may want to remove the pages (non-perforated) so that young artists can more readily color them. Measures 9" x 12". 32 pgs, pb. ~ Mike
