    Kids aren't fooled. They'd rather use mom or dad's keys, cell phones - even flashlights - over a "kiddie" model! That's why I love this metal detector from First Texas Products (a real metal detector company). It looks like a tool, not a toy, with a tough black 6.5" search coil, a telescoping shaft (up to 2') and a no-nonsense control panel. The detector will pick up coin-size objects up to 5" deep and larger objects up to 1.5' deep, and the volume varies with the target depth. The straightforward and very readable booklet gets kids started right away, including an explanation of the elimination knob to bypass iron or nickel objects, and how to adjust the sensitivity. The durable design and simple operation should last for years. Requires one 9-volt alkaline battery. – Jess

    This is it, the eagerly anticipated and finally available third book in the"Exploring Creation with Zoology" series. Now it's time to learn about all the land animals God created on the sixth day. Animals in this category are diverse and include many different types. Like the others in this series, the groups are studied using their scientific names. You'll learn about Carnivores, Caniforms, Feliforms, Marsupials, Primates, Rodentia, Ungulates (hoofed animals), Artiodactyla, reptiles, amphibians, and even dinosaurs. The book is divided into 14 modules, each containing the quality information and illustrations you've come to expect from Apologia. Children will learn about what makes each group very special and different from other groups of animals.At the end of each module, children will engage in a variety of notebookactivities and experiments. A "Track It!" activity helps students identify tracks of the animals just covered in that module. The "Map It!" activity encourages students to mark a map with the location of where you might find the animals from that module. How Exciting! I think parents will really enjoy learning along with their children about the unique land creatures God created.

    The word 'Algebra' can strike fear into the hearts of many, but Critical Thinking Press has done their part to calm your math nerves and prepare students for higher level math in Understanding Algebra. The newest member of the Mathematical Reasoning line is a full one year algebra course for students at the junior high and high school level in a consumable format.

    The information in this worktext is a user-friendly format and presented in a step-by-step fashion. The text makes a connection between the arithmetic of the elementary years to the algebra they need to succeed in high school math. Twelve chapters begin with the basics and build upon each other Our number system, Evaluating Expressions and Solving Equations, From Words to Algebra/Translating and Solving Word Problems, From Words to Algebra/More Word Problems, Inequalities, Polynomials, Factoring, Working with Radicals, Linear Functions, Systems of Equations and Inequalities, Other Types of Functions, and Working with Algebraic Fractions.

    The author begins the book with a simple explanation of "What is Algebra," and then jumps right in. Each chapter is 20 to 30 pages in length and broken into topics. Each topic or lesson offers the student explanations and examples in a very visual fashion. Colored charts, illustrations, and graphs are incorporated for clarity of explanations. Within the lessons, students will be asked questions to assure they know the concept being presented and a 'more practice' section rounds out the lesson. Sets of 'Enrichment Problems' are scattered throughout the chapters to offer additional practice in higher-order thinking using plenty of word problems. There are no chapter tests in this book, so you would need to assess your student's understanding of the concepts by other means grades from the practice sets and exercises might be your best tool for assessment.

    New for the 2017 edition are chapter reviews covering and a final exam.

    A glossary that includes algebra vocabulary and an answer key are found at the back of the book. These are answers and not solutions. A helpful reference page is included. Students will learn about the history of math as they learn math strategies to help them with algebra and beyond. 378 pgs. pb. Reproducible for home and single classroom use. ~ Donna

    If you're looking for a gift for an artsy little one – boom! - here it is. Packaged in a space-saving tube, you'll find a good-quality, plain canvas smock, 8 chubby short-handled brushes in a variety of sizes, and three nesting paint or water cups with lids. I love the thickness of the natural canvas smock, and it includes stitched pockets to hold all of the brushes in the front as well. Young artists can use it as-is, or paint their own custom design on the smock. Just add some tempera paints and paper and they'll be all set. – Jess

    Combine the fun of building with electricity, and even young children can create battery-powered structures. There are 90 parts and instructions in this kit to help you build 10 different working models: street lamp, jiggling bug, locomotive, dump truck, rescue car, helicopter, windmill tower, moving optical illusion, "steady hand" buzz game, and sea gulls and boat model. The illustrated manual gives you a parts list, assembly guidelines, explanation of electric current and experiments, and step-by-step instructions for each model. I can't imagine any budding scientist not enjoying the opportunity to build and create their own working models. ~ Donna

    Now this is something I would have liked to have had on hand when I was younger! Though simply titled as a journal, this substantial (at 173 pages) and attractive journal is so much more. The book is designed to be both a guide and a record for the young nature lover and student while observing animals and plants in their natural habitats. The journal is divided into five "worlds," woodlands, meadows, ponds & streams, seashore, and twilight. These are nicely laid out in a table of contents at the beginning, complete with a list of the activities in that section and a shaded circle for them to check off once they have completed that page. Following several pages of safety tips, hints on sketching in the field, and a list of suggested items to make a "journal kit" to keep with them while out in the field, we jump into the woodland unit. Every two-page spread in a section consists of a different activity to complete while observing in that area, a page or two of informational reading to prepare the student better to find objects or understand them, and blank pages for them to draw and record their findings. For example, in Woodlands, there are "scavenger hunts" where you record your findings in the blanks rather than gathering things. There is space to write descriptions of different kinds of leaves, pages to draw leaves they find or make leaf rubbings, a page for them to write about their special place, hints on how to find decomposers, and pages to draw animal tracks they find. Each section ends with several blank pages for observation notes, sketches, or whatever else they'd like to record. All in all, it's a combination of nature guide, sketchbook, and journal all in one very attractive (and perfectly hand-sized) package. All this wrapped up in a durable hardcover but spiral bound book teeming with illustrations, tempting areas to write, and inviting spots to draw. With these kinds of "prompts" on every page, combined with natural curiosity, learning about nature should be practically effortless!

    What's the right amount of poetry for a junior high student? I think you'll agree that this collection is "just right." Assuming the student knows the basics (e.g. rhythm, rhyme patterns, metaphor, etc.), this study provides 32 poems (one for each week) printed right in the book. The collection is eclectic; some classic, some not, but each with something to offer – and the invitation to the student to slow down long enough to see, hear, and taste the world the poet has created. Following each poem is a short series of discussion questions, one of which is a vocabulary inquiry. Students are encouraged to keep a notebook with the answers and are often asked to write short paragraphs. Because answers will typically vary, there's no answer key. 105 pgs, pb

       I think everyone has wondered from time to time about their place here on earth – “Who am I?” and “What am I doing here?” Many times we measure ourselves using the world’s standards, which can lead to a poor self-image and other negative effects. Natalie Dorso has written this thorough study based on realizations in her own life. She had spent her teen years trying to answer life questions using the world’s guidelines, forgetting that the important thing for her, and all of us, is who we are in Christ. This study is divided into three important areas: Who am I in Christ in Relation to Sin? Who am I in Christ in Relation to God? Who am I in Relation to Other People? Throughout the study, readers are asked to read passages of scripture (KJV), look at its meaning, and then do some thinking and writing. This book is more than just a read through; it offers practical study and application for the reader’s life and situation. Sections titled “Put Off,” “Renew Your Mind,” and “Put On” are your opportunity to answer questions and write out your thoughts – based on Ephesians 4:22-24. “Put Off” is an opportunity to confess and get rid of your sin, ask forgiveness of others (if needed), and cut it out of your life. “Renew Your Mind” is based in God’s Word – it is here that you memorize and meditate. The third section, “Put On,” is your opportunity to swap out bad behavior for good and be held accountable. For students in junior high and high school, this study might be very helpful as they strive to find where they fit and who they are… in Christ! 176 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

    How well do you know your birds? In this game, the fewer clues you need to figure out the type of bird, the more points you'll score. The game is composed of 300 cards (at three different levels), with each card showing a photograph of the bird on one side and five clues and the name of the bird on the other. One player acts as the reader and reads the first clue to the player on their left, who is the answerer. If the answerer can name the bird after the first clue, they receive 5 points, if they need two clues, they get 4 points, etc, down to 0 points if they can't identify it. Then they become the new reader and play passes around the table. Whoever has the most points after eight rounds wins. For 2+ players.

    The author draws on more than 40 years of experience educating middle school children, and her book offers chapters on developing six types of maturity: personal, emotional, physical, social, intellectual, and ethical. Each one opens with a three- to four-paragraph definition and description of that chapter’s topic. Several activities follow that allow children to explore that topic in depth, including quizzes, fill-in-the-blank games, and graphs. The author also gives readers the opportunity to draw pictures, record personal experiences, and more. One activity, “Adult Interview,” provides a list of questions for children to ask parents or guardians about their early lives, including, “What would you change about your childhood?” The fun activity pages are designed so that readers can easily put them down and resume them later without confusion. After this interactive portion, Richards provides a page of “inspirational thoughts” on the topic, encouraging introspection and introducing children to authors, philosophers, and historical figures (including Samuel Johnson, Maya Angelou, Winston Churchill, Pablo Picasso, and many others) that they may encounter later in their education. Richards quotes Mother Teresa in the chapter on ethical maturity: “It is not how much we do, but how much love we put into the doing.” Finally, each chapter concludes with suggestions for goals that children may set for themselves (such as researching a topic of particular interest, keeping a reading log, or reading aloud to preschool children), strategies for accomplishing them, and graphs to chart their progress. The book doesn’t contain any large blocks of text, which will appeal to readers of all levels. The colorful illustrations and graphics enhance the work but seem more appropriate for children at the lower end of the recommended 8-14 age range. Younger teens may say the workbook is “uncool” but secretly like it; tweens, however, will adore it, and even adults may benefit from its recommendations. Richards presents the concepts, which may be new to younger readers, in a clear, easily understood manner without condescension or preaching. With some explanation by adults, the workbook could even function as a read-aloud for younger children. In general, it’s an excellent way to encourage reflection in kids of all ages.

    A well-crafted resource for youngsters and anyone else interested in personal self-improvement.

    "In the beginning God created…" not your typical opening sentence for an encyclopedic style reference book! Master Books and My Father's World have teamed up to provide homeschool families an alternative to the popular Usborne and DK encyclopedia books. This refreshing book provides fascinating details, beautiful illustrations and full color photographs, all from an evolution-free perspective! The introduction provides an overview of zoology, a synopsis of the flood, and God's design for animal life.

    Seven chapters examine the animal kingdom from single-celled organisms to mammals. Section One looks at single cell life forms, protists, moss animals, sponges, jelly fish, hydroids, sea anemones, coral and coral reefs. Section Two focuses on worms, snails, starfish, mollusks, and echinoderms. In Section Three, readers will explore the world of bugs, including beetles, weevils, butterflies, bees, wasps ants, flies, crickets, grasshoppers, and even fleas and lice! Other animals included are crabs, lobster, shrimp, crustaceans, spiders, scorpions, centipedes and millipedes. Section Four covers fish. Although fish are easy to identify, not all fish must live in the water. In this section, we learn the common characteristics of fish, and the exceptional characteristics of some, which allow them to break the rules. Amphibians and reptiles are featured in Section Five. Readers will "meet" newts, salamanders, frogs and toads as well as a few of my family's favorite animals: tortoises, turtles, terrapins, sea turtles, crocodiles and alligators, iguanas and chameleons, geckos, lizards, skinks, pythons, boas, and thread snakes, grass snakes, water snakes, garter snakes and a variety of venomous snakes. Birds are next. Did you know that penguins successfully navigate life in the sea by using their short stubby wings for swimming? This segment also introduces us to seabirds, shorebirds, herons, ducks, geese, birds of prey, game birds, pigeons, doves and parrots, cuckoos, owls, woodpeckers, crows, shrikes, sparrows, finches and weavers, warblers, thrushes, flycatchers, larks, swallows, treecreepers, plus many others. The seventh section examines mammals including whales, dolphins porpoises, egg-laying mammals, marsupials, bats, anteaters, sloths, armadillos, rabbits, aardvarks, hyraxes, mice, rats, squirrels, deer, camel, antelopes, sheep, horses, zebras, cats, dogs, bears, raccoons, pandas, mongooses, lemurs, monkeys and numerous others.

    This reference book would be a valuable asset to the Christian homeschool family bookshelf. These books will most definitely end up on my family's reference shelf and I am grateful we can offer this quality science reference book without the deluge of evolutionary teaching. ~ Deanne

    Do you have a bird enthusiast at your house? They will certainly enjoy reading this book about peregrine falcons, American golden plovers, western kingbirds and 49 other birds. Students are encouraged to color in the birds as they read about them, easily done with the set of 8 colored pencils built into the book itself. I can see an older child taking this book outside to absorb the sights and sounds as they read, color and learn with this book. There are color images of the birds in the back if they want to be accurate while coloring in the bird outlines. As a learning tool, there is a quiz in the back with 52 questions and an answer key. ~ Sara
