    Traverse your way through the United States of America in order of statehood with these spiral-bound state studies. Developed for two different age groups, both books help students discover how the United States was formed over the years by introducing the states in the order in which they became states. In the book for older students, lesson plans at the front of the book provide teachers with an outline and a small timeline of important events surrounding the statehood of that state. This section also holds five review lessons and quizzes to be assigned periodically. The body of the book contains the state-specific pages; each state is allotted three pages to provide students with a complete overview. The first of these pages holds interesting facts about cities, firsts, inventions, and other boasts of that state. At the bottom of this page, students can fill in other fascinating facts they discover about the states through their own research. The second page on each state is the data page; this covers the state's nickname, motto, symbols (bird, tree, flower and flag), historical sites, information on the economy, and a small map work section. Students decode the nickname and motto, read the passage on historical sites, cut and paste the correct state symbols from the back to the spaces provided, and use other appendices to answer the questions on the state's economy and complete the map work. The last state page in each series offers a brief, interesting reading passage on a notable event from that state. Appendices at the back provide the answers to the state data activities as well as the review lessons and quizzes.

    In the newer book for young learners, much of the same format is followed; students still receive four fun worksheets for each state, which cover state symbols, mapwork, special people, date of statehood, capital city, motto, and nickname. Suggested teaching schedules are still provided and this book is even more focused on building character, patriotism, Christian (pid, dsc) values, and a love for geography. Many younger students won't be able to read the text in the book, but will still benefit from having the information read to them. Activities include coloring, cutting, pasting, and learning about interesting people from each state. Full-color symbol pictures are included for both levels. Steph

    Some of the best stories are the ones that come from real people in history. One such story starts with a boy who was raised a Quaker in the Pennsylvania region before the founding of the United States. Benjamin West enjoyed painting so much he did what most would never think of doing: He made paint from clay, plants, and dirt, and fashioned paintbrushes from the tail of his cat, Grimalkin! Follow the great American writer Marguerite Henry as she traces the early years of this young man and his cat in this exciting tale. 147 pgs, pb. John

    Just so you know – I'm not particularly an art person. However, I do like to understand the interrelationships between historical events and culture. This book bridges an amazing gap – historical events and art history. Designed to be a brief survey of art (from 1830 to 1970) it functions as an art history, an art appreciation, and an art techniques (doing art) course. Not to mention the insights it provides into the people and places covered in the history course. This not-particularly-an-art-person is totally impressed!

    Each of the 16 lessons covers an art history period – romanticism through psychedelic art and tie dye – with impressionism, expressionism, modernism, and surrealism among others in between. Each lesson starts with an overview of the history and art of the time period. The succinct coverage is augmented by suggested web links/books/videos but there are also full-color reproductions (in various sizes) of period works included in the book. Sidebar information includes research questions and learning objectives rounding out the instruction. The lesson then moves into the doing art portion with clearly stated assignments, lists of needed supplies, student and author examples, and step-by-step illustrations. For instance, Lesson 5 is Art Nouveau and Symbolism (an ism I missed earlier) which is coordinated with the BF lessons on The Jungle and teaches us that Art Nouveau was an attempt to apply a new look to all of the applied arts while Symbolism was dramatically different – artists defining their art with dramatic emotions rather than story telling. Among the developments of the period; posters became a fine art medium for the first time. The activity for this lesson is designing a decorative initial in the Art Nouveau style.

    Help is available for the young artist (and/or his teacher). The KnoodleU.com website (book purchaser is entitled to access) contains tutorials, resources, tips, quizzes and even mid-term exams. Use of the DK book, Art, is suggested to augment the lessons and provide additional visuals (there's some nudity in the DK book and the author addresses this question helpfully and cautiously). A very helpful timeline that includes world events, art events, art projects and the BF book list is provided.

    Easily a stand-alone art class – or more by just adding the BF books as read alongs, this a perfect complement to the entire Beautiful Feet course and will provide the student with an excellently rounded-out history/humanities course. 65 pgs, spiral-bound ~ Janice
