If You’re Trying To Teach Kids How To Write…..You’ve Gotta Have This Book! By Majorie Frank pb gc $5……This book is loaded with ideas that can be used in the classroom and can be used with teaching teachers how to teach writing skills. This book has some of the most creative and effective ideas you will have come across in a long time. It is an easy read with samples that one can use in a class forever. Recommended  highly.Worthy investment and definitely one that won't just sit on the shelf and collect dust.

Awakening  (Crossroads in Time Book) by Claudia Cangilla McAdam pb *as New* $12…Awakening, by Claudia Cangilla McAdam, is a marvellous book that expertly weaves many of the Bible accounts around the events of Good Friday into an enjoyable young adult novel. McAdam uses a simple and effective device to bring this ancient world to new life and does so with such wonderful invention and skill that you find yourself surprised by the stories you have heard so many times before. Awakening, published by Sophia Institute Press, follows the touching story of Veronica, a young teen struggling with the loss of her father and brother. Her relationship with her mother has become strained as the world she knows and loves seems to be falling apart around her. Struggling with a high fever, she falls asleep and awakens to find herself in Jerusalem during the time of Christ. As a matter of fact, she not only is living in Biblical times, she is one of the characters in the Bible, the young girl who was brought back to life by Jesus himself. Yet, unlike that little girl, she knows what is about to unfold. She knows Jesus is about to be betrayed. She knows he will be crucified and buried. What should she do? Try and stop it from happening or watch Jesus suffer and die? Here is where McAdam's skill as a writer shines bright. Attempting such a retelling is fraught with danger. Will she do so respectfully? Will she resort to cliche? How can you retell a story we've heard so many times with a new voice that doesn't diminish the events it relives? McAdam brilliantly weaves characters from Veronica's modern-day life into her biblical one. Within a few pages you find yourself transported along with her, believing that her family is in the inner circle of followers of Christ. As Veronica juggles learning how to live in the Biblical world with her knowledge of what will happen there, we can't help but be drawn into the story. The reader finds themselves where most people have only dreamt of existing; in the presence of a living, breathing Jesus. How wonderful would it be to be transported back and to have a conversation with Jesus? Or to be at the Last Supper? How extraordinary would such an experience be? That's what McAdam's book brings, extraordinary and awe. I can't delve into the details about how she interjects Veronica into the events around the Good Friday without taking away from McAdam's mastery of storytelling, but she subtly ties numerous Biblical events seamlessly together in a way that makes them fresh and new again.

Favourite Fairy Tales Told In Japan retold by Virginia Haviland hb wdj ec $3…Simply told and beautifully and amply illustrated.Great for less advanced readers.Great for me, who loves old tales, and where you can also get a look at early myths, early explanations of how the earth was made and where we came from etc.We now call it "Science" now, and it is no less, perhaps more, entertaining and wondrous.Stories like these give you a Magic Portal  into the minds and customs and beliefs of different peoples. So original and sometimes so familiar or resonant.This book is part of a collection of favourite fairy tales from around the world. Truly enjoyable!

Amazing Mazes: Mind Bending Mazes for Ages 6-60 by Role Heimann pb gc $2…Lila, Tom, and Ben attempt to solve a series of mazes, including a labyrinth, a pipeline, gears in a machine, a ship, a bramble bush, castle chambers, mine shafts, a log jam, tracks in the snow, and roads. Rolf Heimann maze isn't just a maze. It's a messed-up jumbled-up world, ready for you to navigate. And unlike traditional mazes, these aren't your draw-a-pencil-line-thru-the-maze type. These involve critical thinking, like finding the right ingredients to prepare drinks, and moving across logs to get to an island. Really, an excellent gift for any child is one or all or Rolf Heimann's maze books.

Animaze! : A Collection of Amazing Nature Mazes by Wendy Madgwick pb gc $2…A little zebra is trying to reach his mother in the grasslands, but hungry cheetahs lurk nearby. Kids can help by finding the right path through the grassland maze--and 11 other nature mazes--in this unique natural history book for preschoolers and young children just beginning to read. Wonderful illustrations: colourful, full of small little treasures amongst the mazes in the book. The best part of the book (in MY opinion) is the little index/glossary at the end which gives a detailed description of each animal featured in each painting. Not just "Iguana eat plants", the author goes into mating habits, parenting, migration and many more amazing facts.  Fantastic book for younger AND older children.

Red Riding Hood’s Math Adventure : A Subratction Story Book by Lalie Harcourst hb ec $5….Learn simple addition and subtraction by turning a wheel to determine how many cookies Red Riding Hood should give away or save for Grandma. The surprise ending will delight readers of all ages. Includes activities and game ideas for children and adults.  This book is great because it’s interactive.Most importantly it helps young ones who find Math tedious, fun!

Fun With Sizes by Peter Patilla and Kirsty Asher hb ec $3…Developing awareness of size, area, and space is a foundation of math, and "Fun with Sizes" uses picture puzzles to draw kids in and teach size and spatial concepts. Kids are invited to compare sizes of objects and evaluate area and space in these puzzles, which vary in complexity. This book invites children to find the longest and shortest snakes in the "snake pit" and find the tall, small and widest bottles on the shelves. Through twelve or more bright matching and sorting puzzles it is hoped children will grasp the important concept of size. The puzzles are intended to encourage them to learn words which will help them to express size differences. The games and puzzles have been created to show the differences between size opposites, such as thick and thin and big and small. Size comparisons, such as longer and shorter and small, medium and big, and objects which are the same size, are also introduced.

Fun With Patterns byPeter Patilla and Kirsty Asher hb ec $3…The text in this book invites children to match the footprints and follow the maze to link different patterns together. Through these bright matching and sorting puzzles it is hoped children will be encouraged to develop mathematical concepts such as matching, sorting and categorising skills. OR TAKE BOTH FOR $5…

My Story: Plagues and Federation 1900 by Vashti Farrer pb *as new* $3…You’d hardly know our street anymore… it looks like some place in Africa where there’s been fighting, not like Sydney. I know they had to pull down houses that you couldn’t live in no more and they’ll put up new ones instead only they’ll be different so The Rocks’ll really never look the same again, will it? The year 1900 was a momentous one for Kitty Barnes. Bubonic plague, the Black Death, was killing large numbers of people; the country was on the verge of becoming a federation; Kitty’s brother was in Africa fighting in the Boer War. 10+

Anila’s Journey by Mary Finn pb ec $4….Set in colonial India, this richly layered coming-of-age tale follows a spirited young artist on a journey up the Ganges — and through the enigmas of her past.How can Anila Tandy, left to fend for herself after her mother's death, dare to apply for a job that is clearly not meant for a woman? But somehow the "Bird Girl of Calcutta," art supplies in hand, finds herself on an eye-opening journey up the Ganges, apprenticed to a gentleman scientist. As the lush landscape slips by, Anila dives into her past — a past where her beautiful Bengali mother still tells stories and her Irish father's mysterious disappearance lingers. Gorgeously written and rich with atmosphere, Mary Finn's debut novel tells the story of a determined young artist who must make her way in the dangerous world of late-eighteenth-century India.  “Anila’s Journey” is an immersion into Calcutta and Madras, the Ganges and other wonderful places in India. It will provide a good point of entry into a landscape of wonder and artistry set in that important time of worldview expansion, which Mary Finn seems to capture as if it were a *mere* few centuries ago. Anila’s story is a heartwarming, rich, believable. Ages13-15.

Our Australian Girl series : School Days for Ruby (bk3) by Penny Matthews pb gc $3….It's 1931 . . . and Ruby is settling into life at her school in the country. But when a desperately poor family moves to the area, no one wants to be friends with them. Ruby will have to choose sides, and she has already made one enemy at school - Doris Spinks.

The Silver Sword by Ian Serraillier pb gc $1….Although the silver sword was only a paper knife, it became the symbol of hope and courage which kept the Balicki children and their orphan friend Jan alive through the four years of occupation when they had to fend for themselves. And afterwards it inspired them to keep going on the exhausting and dangerous journey from war-torn Poland to Switzerland, where they hoped to find their parents. Based on true accounts, this is a moving story of life during and after the Second World War. (spoiler):The children had found their hearts desire in being with their family again, but what they went through left scars. The scars would be there forever, but they were also a testament to their strength, their will to live, and God’s grace.

I Am Helen Keller by Grace Norwich pb *as new* $3…

The Most Charming redhead in fiction…..Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery pb ec $3As soon as Anne Shirley arrives at the snug white farmhouse called Green Gables, she is sure she wants to stay forever . . . but will the Cuthberts send her back to to the orphanage? Anne knows she's not what they expected—a skinny girl with fiery red hair and a temper to match. If only she can convince them to let her stay, she'll try very hard not to keep rushing headlong into scrapes and blurting out the first thing that comes to her mind. Anne is not like anyone else, the Cuthberts agree; she is special—a girl with an enormous imagination. This orphan girl dreams of the day when she can call herself Anne of Green Gables.You can’t help but fall in love with Anne. She is the friend you have always longed for, the daughter that will bring that much-needed light in your life, that student that any teacher would be proud to instruct. She is funny, imaginative, bright, and a regular chatterbox. She laments about her red hair, apologies for being a ‘great trial’ to Marilla, and always manages to see the positive in most everything. However, she does maintain a long-standing rivalry with her peer, Gilbert Blythe. "She was as intense in her hatreds as in her loves." Nothing is ever lukewarm when it comes to Anne’s feelings.  Some might say this book is too wholesome, too charming, and perhaps too unrealistic. I have to say that I don’t believe those are good enough reasons to skip reading this enchanting novel! It didn’t take place just yesterday so I didn’t expect the trials and tribulations of today’s day and age. The events do occur on an idyllic island, so I felt the beautiful scenery I was immersed in was wholly believable. Anne is not a perfect little girl and each character has their share of flaws. Not every story has to be full of doom and gloom to get all the stars! Sometimes one just needs to sit back, relax, and just surrender to the small pleasures in life. We could all use a lesson from Anne’s book of optimism here and there!

Mandie and The Abandoned Mine (Mandie Bk 8) by Lois Gladys Leppard pb ec $6…

On The Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder pb ec4....This one has some of the most memorable moments in the Little House series: the little dugout house, the cow putting his foot through the roof, leeches in the creek, locusts, doing chores by following a rope between the house and barn in a blizzard..... all those moments of life in a pioneering era of hardship and pure heart. Despite knowing how these stories turn out, I still get anxious for Pa coming home in the storm, or when trying to put out a prairie fire, and get grossed out by the leeches, cheer for Laura in her troubles with Nellie Oleson, and long to see the beautiful sunsets and sunrises described. Wilder tells stories with such remarkable narrative ability, you can't help but get deeply buried into each story.
