species that are endangered or have gone extinct, and to integrate all
areas of the curriculum in the process. With projects that involve
literature, science facts, creative writing, research skills, art, and

why are some of them hunted, how does the environment effect them, and
what is being done -- and can be done in the future -- to save them.

There is a five-page section of reproducible pages for hand-made books
about individual animals, such as the Florida Manatee, the Black
Rhinoceros, the Mountain Gorilla, the Giant Panda and six others. Each
is illustrated, as is the entire book, with detailed, accurate line art
of endangered or extinct species.

Project titles include: Endangered Animals - Pencil Pals, Draw these
Endangered Animals, Who Shall We Save?, In My Home Town, Fact or
Opinion, and many others. There is a form for writing a letter to
conservation groups, game refuges, or parks, a list of organizations

for you and our students to explore.

songs and thermoses of hot cocoa. The animals invite the bear to join

before. Happily, the cocoa not only warms his tummy but also his heart
and he stops feeling grumpy and agrees to join his new friends on a
lovely winter's day adventure. Off the group goes, singing the
traditional song "Jingle Bells." The sweet story is enhanced by truly
beautiful, lovingly detailed illustrations by Joe Ewers. The words and

an orphaned human raised by various immortal creatures in an enchanted

is not always smooth, and Claus ultimately must face the result of
mortality after a lifetime of generosity. "The Life and Adventures of

WHY AMERICA IS FREE: A HISTORY OF THE FOUNDING OF THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC
(Grades 5th-8th)
-- The book's purpose is to revive thoughtful patriotism in the United
States - patriotism based on the simple idea that Americans are indebted
to the men and women of the revolutionary generation for the freedoms we
enjoy. It introduces students to the story of the American Revolution in
a way that will enrich their appreciation of our free system of
government.

Why America Is Free is based on the premise that the revolutionary
generation enunciated the fundamental principles of liberty and
constructed the foundations upon which American freedom has grown for
more than two centuries. The great accomplishments of later generations
- the abolition of slavery, the recognition of the civil liberties of
women and minorities, and the spreading of American principles of
natural rights and representative government throughout the world - were
based on the achievements of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James
Madison, and the thousands of individual men and women whose sacrifices
made the American Revolution a success.

Why America Is Free teaches that the American Revolution is an ongoing
revolution, and its ultimate fulfillment is the civic responsibility of
all Americans. The future of liberty is in our hands, and ultimately the
hands of our children.

Besides the actual history, this book includes personal accounts, and
what life was like at that time. --$6.75

ONTO THE YELLOW SCHOOL BUS (Mary Hood, PhD)
---Over four centuries ago, Martin Luther warned parents what the
consequences would be if God was ever removed from the educational
system.
---He stated, “I am much afraid that the schools will prove the Gates of
Hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures and
engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his
child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in
which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must be
corrupt."
---Have Luther's words proven true? Are your children climbing onto the
yellow school bus every morning and entering the Gates of Hell? If so,
what can you do to save them? This is not just another "doom and gloom"
book designed to scare you and make a lot of sales. It contains positive
solutions and practical suggestions that will help you regain control of
your family and put Jesus back where He belongs - at the center of your
child's education. - $4.25
