    This is a reference book with a twist--from page to page, topics are connected. First you see a satellite image of the earth; on that earth there is small boxed area. On the next page you see that the boxed area was the ocean and the two-page spread has information about elements of the ocean. Or you may see a two-page spread of hot air balloons with the flags of different countries on them. Turn the page to see information about the UN, and the hot air balloons are seen floating outside the window. Turn the page again to see the close-up of a background picture concerning religions in other countries. It's like looking for hidden things in the pictures as a clue for what will follow. I continue to go back to the pages to find the links between them. This 250-page hardcover book covers topics from science and history/geography – nature, human body, earth, people and places, art and culture, history, science and technology, and space. A glossary in the back of the book will help with new or unfamiliar words. Each two-page spread is a large photo surrounded by small photos, illustrations, and bits of information. This book offers more than just reference material as you zoom in and out of the scenes – your children will be encouraged to read and learn with this interactive format. ~ Donna

    Stomp rockets are fun, rapid launching weapons are awesome; combine those things together and you get the X6 Zoom Rocketz! This set contains a launcher with a rotating base that holds 6 rockets. Tilt the base to the angle you desire, then jump or stop on the launch pad to send your rocket flying up to 100 feet. The base automatically rotates so you can immediately stomp it again and again to send all 6 rockets into the sky, rapid fire! The rockets slide easily onto the base and are designed with a durable foam nose-cone for damage free landing, reflective foil so you can keep track of your rocket in the sky (and on the ground!), and fins to help gain altitude and spin. Set includes launch pad, base and 6 rockets. For outdoor use. ~ Megan

    Made by Carson Optical, these binoculars are the real deal in a very compact size. Measuring only 3.375" x 4.125" x 1.25" and weighing in at 6.4 ounces, these binoculars travel easily in a purse or pocket. With a rubberized outside coating, they're perfect for outdoor events.

    This book will show kids that bats aren't scary at all - they just come out at night because this is the best time to find all the pesky bugs like mosquitoes and grasshoppers they need to eat each day. Did you know they eat one-fourth their body weight each day? This book will teach about the physical make-up of bats, how they catch their food, where they like to live, and more. On back is a short list of bat species and where they are found.

      As you zoom through the 60 circular cards, you’re competing to be the first to think of a word that fits the criteria. One side of each card shows letters; the other shows a category. Flip over the top card and match one of three letter colors with the color of the category card that’s next on the stack. Name an item in the given category that starts with that letter, such as “a food that starts with C.” If you’re the first to name one, you win that card. The winner is the one with the most cards after the stack is gone. A shuffle of the deck ensures that the letters/categories are new for the next game. Ten different categories range from movies/TV to countries or plants. 2-6 players, 15 minutes play, packaged in a storage tin.

    This combined volume of all four Time Traveler books focuses on everyday life in various periods in history. Like the Book of World History it contains interesting text and captivating illustrations (in typical Usborne style!).

    So, how is it different? The World History book goes through history, looking at different civilizations during each period. The Omnibus focuses in on specific time periods in history and examines in detail the lives of fictional characters who could have lived during that time. My (then) 12 year old daughter recommended reading through the World History volume first, then the Time Traveler's Omnibus to "zoom in" on certain historical periods. She says this book will "give you a better understanding and appreciation of how it was to live during that time - it's the next best thing to being there."

    Taking interactive learning to the next level, these quality 32 "x 42" matte laminated wall charts appeal to all the learning styles in your family or classroom. Detailed posters come alive with the required downloadable app (Apple or Android devices). Hover the camera from your smart phone or tablet over the chart to see the human body come alive through 3D images, or informational screen shots. With this amazingly cool interactive chart, pinch to zoom or swipe to rotate to explore the torso or click on the clavicle and see a screen shot that explains it's unique position in the body and its importance in connecting the scapula to the sternum. While younger children may enjoy "playing" with this wall chart and learning more about the human body, older students will benefit most from the additional information. ~ Deanne

    Turn your smart phone into a microscope and have some science fun. This microscope is simple to attach – just clip it on your phone, turn on your camera and view any little thing. The kit includes a small microscope with LED light, universal mount with focusing ring, filter adapter, 4 filters, slide with 3 specimens, carrying case, and activity book. There are 20 activities that guide you through looking at a $5 bill, the pixels of an LCD image, snapping photos through light filters, and much more. I popped this on my iPhone and took pictures of the eye of George Washington on the dollar bill, a picture of my skin (very cool), and a video recording of an ant. The pictures will be as good as your phone photos – zoom capabilities really depend upon your phone's capabilities. They are called smart phones for a reason, and now you are able to connect to a microscopic world with a single touch.

    This sturdy little LED-lighted pocket microscope is the perfect companion for the great outdoors or indoors! The 4" microscope fits into a sturdy base, but can be used without. Use the zoom to view small objects at 20X-40X which show up nice and bright with the LED lighting. Even 3-D objects look nice and sharp under the viewer! One of my favorite features is the button that controls the lighting you have to hold it in to turn on the light, ensuring that the light bulb isn't left on for hours and hours. Two plastic specimen slides and cover slips are included to begin your pond water investigations, and these slide right into the microscope base. Microscope uses three LR44 button cell batteries, included. ~ Jess
