    One of our favorite things to do when we were young was play our Oregon Trail computer game. Though we hardly ever made it alive to the end, we enjoyed planning for the trip by buying supplies, making trail decisions when our wagon broke, hunting for food, fording rivers, and other aspects of traveling the trail. Like most kids, we were fascinated by the idea of leaving behind your home and traveling all the way across the country amid many dangers, in search of a better life. This book brings the adventure of going west to you through stories, "pretend-it-was-you" decision making pages and activities using common materials. The reading is split between interesting historical accounts of life back then and a fictional story of one family's decisions to go west. "Try It" activities litter the book, encouraging you to do things like they did on the trail, including churning butter, drying apple slices, and playing games. Ideas and directions for other activities, such as constructing your own paddleboat, creating a popsicle-stick Ft. Laramie, holding your very own frolic (complete with treats!) and other western aspects appear every few pages to add even more fun to your journey. Though the frontier is gone, and the journey would only take hours today, it's still fun to imagine yourself experiencing life on the trail. ~ Stephanie

       Learn logic in a day!  That is, a day in the life of Fred.  Here is a complete coverage of logic in a mere 176 pages.  No ancillaries required.  That’s right.  No separate teacher book, no test pack, no workbook needed.  It’s all right here – the whole “Kittens” caboodle.  Fred, now six (and still a professor at Kittens U), is preparing to give a logic lecture.  Ironically, and somewhat conveniently, Duck (first introduced in Life of Fred: Apples) pays Fred a visit and provides ample fodder for some of the first topics covered in the book.  Duck, who always speaks in sentences that are false, helps to illustrate both logic sentence structure and the concept of every sentence being True or False.  As always, Dr. Schmidt manages to both entertain and train.  Along with the levity and random bits of eclectic knowledge provided in chapter 1, Dr. Schmidt gets right down to introducing us to both pure and applied logic and the language of logic (the use of symbols, modeling, and structures) – all in the first few pages of the book.   From there, the course progresses through the topics of truth tables, connectives, the language of logic, inductive vs. deductive reasoning, logic fallacies (covered all in ONE conversation), and predicate logic.  These first six chapters provide a complete high school logic course.  Once logic as a second language is mastered, working through the remaining ten chapters is the equivalent of completing a college-level logic course.   This part of the course is more heavily theoretical.  It uses the structures and models learned in the first part of the course, progressing to proofs, introducing more complex structures and lemmas, and giving much thought to Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorem.   No prerequisites are required to begin this course, though I think it would help if your student had completed Algebra and Geometry before tackling it.  While the math skills themselves are not needed, the ability to reason well and think logically (and somewhat mathematically) is.  There are no exercises to complete, though there are 99 “puzzles” to solve.  In addition to a very alert and thoughtful mind, familiarity with and understanding of symbolic language, proofs, combinations, set theory, and other topics typically covered in higher-level math would aid solutions.  As far as teaching time, there is none.  The course is totally self-instructional.  Instruction is directed to the student/reader and all answers are included in the back of the book.  Dr. Schmidt goes to great lengths as the book’s narrator to make sure the student does not take the easy road and check the answers before first exercising his/her brain.  He also already anticipates questions and objections the student might have, with many “reader” interjections, shown in distinctive font, at these points.   One quibble I have with the book (and a caution to parents) is Dr. Schmidt’s unnecessary incorporation of drugs (cocaine) and drinking used in one of the early examples in the book.   I can guess the reason for this, but I wish he had considered another option….  This course will appeal most to those who enjoy math, enjoy Fred, and enjoy a good story along with their study.

    So many students get burned out on writing before they've hardly begun, bogged down by complex grammar rules, inflexible formats, and uninteresting assignments. It shouldn't be that way. Writing should be an exciting subject, entered into as an adventure, for there are so many types of writing that every assignment can be enjoyable! This is the way that Gabriel Arquilevich, author of Writing for 100 Days, presents it. Predictably, the book contains 100 lessons, divided into four categories; composition, fiction, poetry, and writing in action. The lessons are short, flexible, and structured for use by the student alone, or for a teacher and student(s). The book kicks off with word usage and a review of punctuation. However, this is only brief review, and though exercises are given, supplemental practice would be helpful to keep those skills fresh. After the basics are reviewed, more punctuation, construction, tone, and style are covered in Composition. Fiction covers character creation, setting, plot, dialogue, and point of view. Poetry covers haiku, limericks, sonnet, free and blank verse, lyrics, and more. Writing in Action (the largest section) contains instruction on writing as part of daily life, such as business and personal letters, interviews, advertisements, reviews, columns, diaries, and greeting cards. The lessons, each covering a major facet of the big topic, are divided into two parts, the lesson and the writing. The introduction is clearly written, includes many examples, and is reader-friendly. Then the fun part - putting into action what you have just learned. The short assignments leave room for lots of creativity.

    We are encouraged, no, told to learn from our mistakes as we write our pieces, and how to recognize familiar pitfalls. Yes, an important step of many of the assignments is to purposely write our piece exhibiting the featured foibles! In a lesson on wordiness, we're told to write a half-page description of an event, adding as much wordiness as possible. In a lesson on fragments and run-on sentences, we have to write a story - a one-page story with one sentence. Or, write a description of an unknown planet, with a catch - use no similes or metaphors. This not only makes errors much more noticeable, but also relays to us the importance of grammatical tools and variety in writing. (Oh, by the way, after you write your piece with the errors, you do go back and fix it.) At the end of each unit, you use all the components you've practiced to write your big composition, fictional story, sestina, and journalistic works.

    For extra fun, several games are featured at the end of the book. Answers to the review questionaire also included. This is truly a "breath of fresh air" for any student, but especially to one who is having a hard time really enjoying the art of writing. - Jess

    When my children were younger, every December we put aside our books and did a month-long focused study on Christmas. One year we studied the Christmas story, another Christmas traditions around the world and yet another year, we focused on the history of Christmas Carols. What I love about this unit study is that it masterfully unites each of these into one inclusive study.

    Beginning with a detailed study of the birth of Jesus, it then surveys the history of our Christmas celebrations. Designed to take an hour or more, each of the fifteen lessons includes Bible study, history, geography, science, art, poetry, grammar and the stories of Christmas carols. Children will also write (or younger ones will dictate) five essays about Jesus and what following Him means in real life. Two booklets are completed during this study: "A Baby Book for Jesus" and "Christmas Traditions Around the World." Complete instructions and a craft supply list are included. While most supplies are things you will have at home, others are easily found at your local hobby stores. Author Charlene Notgrass also includes a list of read-aloud selections, but feel free to use your family favorites to make a more memorable Christmas experience. Books are consumable; each child will need his own copy. Lesson recommendations and answer key included. Spiral Bound. Scripture references NASB. ~ Deanne

    Load up your covered wagon and join the Todd family as they journey from their comfortable Arkansas home to the great unknown along the Oregon Trail. With only a guide book and their strong faith in God, the Todd family tackles the dangerous two thousand mile journey with courage and a pioneering spirit.

It is a great read and is full of concrete historical information to accompany any study of the wild Western Frontier and the pioneers who settled it. The author, Jean Van Leeuwen will draw any reader into the story with the details of life along the Oregon Trail. You can also track the Todd family's progress chapter-by-chapter with the use of the illustrated map provided on the first two pages.

     Love the idea of unschooling, but struggle to find a balance between too much unproductive time and a strictly scheduled day? This resource may provide the perfect balance. Subtitled, “The Beginner’s Journal”, this animal and farm themed curriculum gently guides learning in several areas including reading, handwriting, logic, spelling, classic literature and music, mathematics including practice in addition, subtraction, and multiplication, creative writing, and more.

      Due to the open-ended nature of this course, you will notice repetition in many of the activity pages. For example, the backyard science/nature walk study pages, animals of the world, and reading time pages allow children to document varied observations and studies. Many struggling learners thrive on familiarity, which helps create a fun learning experience for struggling or younger students. Parents will need to assist their children in choosing topics of study, completion of some activities and securing additional, recommended resources.

      Recommended educational resources include a computer with your own Minecraft world, audio books, Story of the World for the Classical Child, Classical music CDs, a variety of educational videos and movies, and a math curriculum (Life of Fred or Math-U-See are suggested). Necessary school supplies include pencils, colored pencils, gel pens, origami paper, and a ruler. Assorted dyslexia games from the author’s Series A and B are included, and the Dyslexie font is utilized. Author states a child may work in this book up to 3 hours daily for 6 weeks, with 30 minutes of computer time 3 days per week, although flexibility allows you to fit to your family’s needs. Reproducible for children in your household. Black and white graphics. SC. 294 pgs. ~Deanne

      Targeting a slightly older crowd, this flexible curriculum resource may inspire delight-directed learning in your family. In this (mostly) self-study, children begin by choosing topics they wish to study and take steps to achieve their goals. Tips for wisely choosing resources while using these recommended resources: computer access and personal Minecraft world, audio books, Story of the World for the Classical Child, Classical music, Google Earth and parent-approved news sources, educational videos and movies, and a math curriculum (Life of Fred or Math U See suggested). Listed are also a few necessary supplies: pencils, colored pencils, gel pens, origami paper, and a ruler.

      The heart of this course is the gentle, guiding learning in an array of subject areas including reading, creative writing, spelling and vocabulary, classical literature and music, mathematics (open ended to use with your math curriculum), science, geography, current events and much more. Comparing this to the author’s Fun-Schooling Curriculum: Homeschooling with Minecraft, you will note overlapping activities but a different focus. The aforementioned course includes an animal and farm theme designed to engage younger learners, whereas the DIY Curriculum is written for a slightly older crowd and focuses on Geography and “world news today” events. Woven throughout the course are research projects to learn about mining in the real world, which provides a fascinating “rabbit trail” to a Minecraft study.

      If you are wondering which of the Thinking Tree Minecraft studies would best fit your child, younger children who thrive when working more directly with a parent, may find the Fun-Schooling Curriculum: Homeschooling with Minecraft (#068704) a better option. While the reading level recommended for this course is grade 2 and up, many of the research activities and world studies seem better fit for an older child. Other activities like the backyard science nature walk and study may work with all ages. Another consideration in selecting these activities is the student’s ability to concentrate for longer periods of time. While the author does not define computer time in this course, her general guidelines for daily study are 5 pages per day for 10 years and under and 10 pages per day for 10 years and up (2-4 hours per day). Repetition is also built into this curriculum guide allowing students to study various aspects of Minecraft in a similar fashion.

    If you have a child who is crazy for cartooning, this book is perfect (it’s crazy!). Essentially, it gives young artists tips and ideas for their own creations through, well, a really nutty story about a movie being made in a castle where most of the characters don’t know they are in a movie. In the course of this kooky tale, you learn about drawing body shapes, costume choices, body language, and facial expressions all to bring your comic characters to life on the page. It’s silly and funny and I liked the roundabout approach to teaching through story telling. It fits the media after all! Knights, castles, robots, wizards, witches…elephants, broccoli, ballerinas, frogs…something for everyone to inspire your creativity and get your characters on paper. 10” x 7.5”, 63 pp, pb. ~ Sara

     As parents, we have the tremendous opportunity to share God’s truth and the Gospel with our children! The subtitle for this devotional is Ten-Minute Devotions to Draw Your Family to God. These 78 weeks (a year and a half’s worth!) of in-depth, yet straight forward devotionals require a minimum each day. Organized by week, you’ll find units of 5 daily devotions: days 1-4 chronologically study the Bible. The books focus on key biblical elements that connect the whole message of the Gospel in a concise and manageable way. Day 5 diverges from this pattern to study related writings from the Psalms or prophets. Each weekly unit opens with an object lesson or themed questions. The simple items used for this lesson are listed at the beginning. Day one begins with Picture It, to help introduce the family to the week’s theme. Each day, read the passage from your own Bible, and then Think about It (a brief read-aloud passage to help understand the passage), Talk about It (three group questions with brief answers) and Pray About It (unscripted suggestions for prayer). As you progress through the week, you will be asked to remember previous days’ readings and also to apply them to your lives.

    Old Story New covers the New Testament. About half of the devotions discuss the life and ministry of Jesus. The second half covers the church and living like Christ (Acts and epistles). Includes brief instructions for how to use the devotionals with preschool, grade school and older students.  

    I so appreciate the succinct treasure this is: theologically rich, yet comprehensible; simple, yet doctrinally sound. Another unique feature is that occasionally children are cued to ask the parents questions. The approach here is that we are all on a spiritual journey to becoming more like Christ (rather than “the parents know it all”). Use these excellent devotions to start your homeschool day or study as a family in the evening. By the same author as Gospel Story Bible (#062680). 7.5” x 10.5”, 418 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    Ready, Set, GO! This new devotional introduces young people to the adventure of a lifetime-the adventure of knowing and walking with God. Each week presents an illustrated story from the Old or New Testament, a memory verse, devotional thoughts ("X-Ray Vision"), an assigned mission that applies the devotional teaching, debriefing questions to inspire Biblical living, and a lessons review. There are also occasional suggested activities to share with family or creative, big picture pages with activity ideas to drive home the main point of the week.

    Let me share the distinctive nuances of this devotional. Week 35 begins with a reading of the Temptation of Christ in the Desert (based on Luke 4:1-13, Matthew 4:1-11 and John 1:35-51) from the graphically illustrated Action Bible. Following is the key memory verse Matthew 4:4 (NLT), and then X-Ray Vision shares the classic "I am your father" scene from the Star Wars movie The Empire Strikes Back, comparing this to the real life temptation of Jesus by Satan. The follow up thoughts share with young people that they can overcome temptation in the same way Jesus overcame temptation. Three mission choices are presented that focus on developing tools to overcome temptation. Debrief questions encourage them to consider whether it was easy for Jesus to face Satan's temptations, as well as how they usually try to defeat temptation and how many Bible verses do they know. Mission Accomplished journaling focuses on what they learned and what they want to remember. There is also a share the adventure activity to ask mom, dad, a sibling or friend to check up on them and help them beat an especially tough temptation. This would make an excellent devotional for the adventuring loving girls or boys in your family. References from various Bible translations. 334 pgs, sc. ~Deanne

    Boys' Life is a classic part of the Boy Scouts program – the magazine has been around for over 100 years now. As a Cub Scout, I always looked forward to it coming in the mail: getting to read stories of adventure, how-to and First Aid articles, and general guy-stuff (oh, and the comics of course). The Boys' Life Book of Outdoor Skills combines decades of Boys' Life content into a single volume, with fantastic articles on equipment, survival, how-to, and stories of Scouts in action. It's a literal treasure trove! This is one book that the Scouts in your family (or any other boys) will read over and over again. Not only is it just fun to read, it's fully illustrated (all of the full-color articles are left as they were originally published in magazine format) and super practical as well. There are articles about how to build your own canoe or snow cave (or indoor home rifle range, if you feel so inclined), how to treat heat exhaustion or hypothermia; stories about scouts surviving in the wilderness or climbing the Grand Teton, and of heroic rescues after bear attacks or fire accidents. There's always been something special about the Scouting program; it's had a huge impact in helping boys gain the skills they need in their lives as men. Plus, what boy doesn't like learning how to rough it in the wild and use knives and fire? 192 pgs., hc. – Chad

She even gets to visit one of his living relatives. Explore both Monet’s personal and professional life and the Impressionist movement in this charming adventure with colorful reproductions of his masterpieces and old family photos sprinkled throughout.

    Designed for advanced beginners (students with at least a year of French), here is a clever and engaging reader with your student in mind. Textbooks, workbooks, grammar books and computer programs are where your student is learning the language, but here is a fun way to challenge them and test their skills. In the story, 7 American students are on an adventure in France with their French teacher. Every time the teacher checks her email, an adventure follows! They cover Paris, Normandy, Bordeaux, and the Riviera (la Cote d'Azur.) An activity follows each chapter and some vocabulary is translated in the margins. The activities check your student's comprehension along the way. There are some prompts to do internet research, draw pictures, and do some writing or speaking aloud. If internet is not available, you could save it for a trip to the local library. A few illustrations help with understanding the action-packed story as well. The cultural information brings the language to life as your student learns more about the people who speak French: where they live, what they eat, etc. Nice glossary in the back too!

    This edition is a nice package of both stories, and I recommend reading them back-to-back as they compliment one another so well. In The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, you will see life through the eyes of an energetic boy named Tom Sawyer. As you read, you will enjoy a summertime of adventure, pranks, punishments, villains, and young love. In Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, you will see life through the eyes of a boy who nobody wants. Join him and his friend Jim (a runaway slave) as they float down the Mississippi River on their raft as they mature into young men. These two lighthearted stories will bring a smile to your face; however, do take caution as there is a large amount of crude racial language used. Unabridged, pb, 396 pages.

Join ten courageous men as they travel the world and embark on journeys of adventure: Sir Francis Drake, David Livingstone, Captain John Smith, Christopher Columbus, Daniel Boone, Sir John Franklin, Hernan Cortes, John Paul Jones, Hernando De Soto, and Giuseppe Garibaldi. Listening to the story of the clash between John Paul Jones' USS Ranger and the British man-o-war HMS Drake made me feel the thrill of a sea battle. The runtime is a whopping 9 hours and 55 minutes – and the reason there's so much audio on one CD is because it's in MP3 format. That means that you can put the audio files on any iOS device (iPod, etc.), and play the CD on your computer, DVD player, or MP3 compatible CD player. (Please note the CD will not work in older CD players that are not MP3 compatible.). Ten Great Adventurers would be a fantastic way to pass the time on your next long road trip—or anytime! –Chad
