Product Description:

An inspiring story about the bravery and courage of a little pioneer girl as she learns the true meaning of sacrifice.

We personally own a lot of these books. Many of them are among our children's all-time favorites. That's saying a lot, since my children are voracious readers. There's such variety in this line - they run the gamut from biography to fantasy, but consistently enrich. It is indisputable that every book you read becomes a little part of you. Knowing this, we want to be careful not to fill our children's heads and hearts with objectionable, disturbing or useless material. Many of our customers are Christian homeschoolers, as we are. Even among this group, parents differ in the degree of restriction or criteria they apply in selecting materials they consider appropriate for their children, depending upon their particular convictions in this area. However, we feel confident that even the most convicted parent would have no qualms about this thoroughly Christian series. While books in the Light Line have a "strong Christian message," they are not "preachy." Rather, they skillfully entertain while presenting that message, with vivid characters and strong, exciting story lines. The biographies are among the best my children have read - they have been particularly stirred by With Daring Faith, the story of missionary Amy Carmichael. Series are listed first in each section, followed by single books listed alphabetically.




Category Description for BJU Press Curriculum:

We are pleased to be able to distribute BJU Press curriculum to our customers. Most homeschoolers are already familiar with their materials. For those who are not, BJU is a Christian university located in South Carolina that produces and markets curriculum materials for Christian schools as well as home schools. Probably the most homeschool-friendly full-curriculum supplier, they have not only accommodated homeschoolers, but have continually worked to make their materials better suited to the homeschooling family. Many of their courses now contain manuals written specifically for the home school setting, and visuals and supplemental materials have been "pared down" from the bulkier visuals still used in classrooms. While other curriculum suppliers initially frowned on distributing teacher materials to homeschoolers, and provided only expensive classroom versions, Bob Jones quickly embraced homeschoolers, readily allowing them access to teacher's editions and, eventually, producing less expensive spiral-bound or paperbound versions to save money for homeschooling families. Their materials are all top quality. They are professionally prepared, educationally sound, and Biblically-based. Used in Christian school classrooms across the country for years and constantly improved, they are courses you can trust in your homeschool as well. We have long been fans of Bob Jones curriculum materials, having used courses in almost every subject area for one child or another through the years. In our particular situation (seven children, Mom and Dad sharing in teaching as well as in running Rainbow Resource Center), a well-constructed, teacher-ready course can be a God-send. Although we have used a variety of methods and curriculums in our homeschool through the years (and continue to do so), we strongly feel that the Bob Jones materials we have used have helped to produce excellent, college-ready students. Unless you have a particularly strong aversion to textbooks of any kind, at any level, we highly recommend these materials to you.

Curriculum can be found by subject area in our catalog; see index for page numbers. A free scope and sequence is available below, with specific information by grade level.




Category Description for BJU Press Reading - Grade 2:

Recently revised with new format teacher's edition. Instead of a contained novel study (as in the older edition), there are several BookLinks lesson guides meant to be used with selected Journey books. While listed as support materials, I would recommend the use of these (or other study guides) for the experience of reading and studying a full-length work in Reading 2. Teaching Visuals Flip Charts are used for the skill lessons to facilitate review of phonics and other skills. Service Word Cards contain 108 most-needed irregular words that students must master by sight. These two tools are integral parts of the program.

The Home Study Kit includes Teacher's Edition (2 vols.), If Skies Be Blue Student Text, When the Sun Rides High Student Text, Student Worktext, Teaching Visuals Flip Chart, and the Worktext Teacher's Edition.




Category Description for BJU Press Reading:

This reading program is the most comprehensive Ive seen, incorporating phonetic reading at the lowest levels (correlated to phonics instruction), a full range of comprehension skill development, and reading-related skills not usually found in a basal program (map skills, reading and making schedules, word skills, time lines, literary skills, and many more). The Teachers Manual contains daily lesson plans, with a complete presentation of the lesson, and student reading pages, either as a full size text, or in reduced size. Each reading lesson begins with skill development, the reading lesson, and optional enhancement or reinforcement activities. In the younger grades, many of the skill development sections reinforce phonetic and decoding skills. Many of the lessons refer to the Skill Charts for reading lists of words with the constructs being studied. The reading selections are wholesome, engaging, and include all genres - biographies, narrative exposition, historical fiction, Bible stories, imaginary (fantasy) stories, etc. These acquaint students with different types of literature from the beginning - a feature lacking in most other basal readers, which predominately seem to contain stories. As with all Bob Jones lines, the content is tacitly Christian. Typeset used in the readers is age-appropriate and not eye-straining. Most reading comprehension is done orally, but student worktexts contain skill practice pages and some exercises to test or reinforce student understanding. A Teachers Edition of the worktext has answers overprinted in red. The accompanying chapter-by-chapter study, along with background information and discussion questions, is contained in the Teachers Manual. Essential materials are listed first beneath each grade level, followed by asterisked (*) support materials. Complete Home Study kits contain all essential materials to teach one child.

The Bob Jones reading program has been a mainstay in our schooling for years, and we highly recommend it.

This was another enjoyable and informative book by this author! In Carolina's Courage we follow a pioneer family on their journey west I appreciate that varying perspectives were offered in this story the father who wants a farm free from rocks and endless toil the mother who follows his leading but feels the loss of her home and especially Carolina as she faces this adventure with courage Our family enjoys this author's books as read-alouds They tend to be quick reads and indeed we actually finished this book in one evening This is due more to the "can't put it down" nature of this book than its length I particularly enjoy this author's style of historical fiction I feel that we are given a realistic look at the historical period presented while still enjoying a riveting story This story did not delve as deeply into topics of faith as we have seen in previous books by Elizabeth Yates other than the sheer faith a family must have to make such a drastic change in home and lifestyle Even so it was a pleasant story and I found myself moved at the end My husband had trouble relating to the father who would uproot his family in such a way but admits that he knows this happened often in our nation's history and that these men must have had sufficient reasons in their minds to do so My daughter was obviously struggling and feeling torn during the story as she had compassion for Carolina and the decisions she faced Although both found themselves uncomfortable during some parts of this story because of these issues they did say that they enjoyed it in the end It was not my favorite Yates book but I can recommend it as a nice addition to a study of westward expansion or for those who are interested in this time period
