Filled with stories, activities, and tons of information, Asia: Its People and History by Bonnie Rose Hudson is a wonderful resource for Christian parents seeking to introduce their children to the people of Asia and the wealth of history about the area.
With her desire to bring history to life, Hudson has created a phenomenal, engaging, and informative resource designed for children ages 8 to 12. The curriculum is divided into sixteen weeks that can be stretched or compressed to best fit your schedule. Each section contains a story, discussion questions, and activities to make learning come alive. Links to downloadable information make it easy to find what you’re looking for more of. After the Answer Key, you’ll find a list of resources that includes suggested reading, in addition to a special free offer from the author. I plan to share my copy with a homeschooling mom I know.
This curriculum will inspire children to learn more. Highly recommended.

I received a copy of this book from the author. This review contains my honest opinions, which I have not been compensated for in any way.
Explore the ancient world of the ruins of Copán with twelve-year-old James and his father, Professor Questor, in My Copán Adventure written and illustrated by Eugene Ruble.
James is excited when his father tells him he will be his assistant on the next expedition Professor Questor makes. They will be traveling to the ancient Mayán city of Copán to try and determine what happened to its people. While there, they study temples and hieroglyphics. They talk about stelaes and pyramids. James takes photos and draws sketches so they can take their information back home and interpret the data.
My Copán Adventure is a beautifully illustrated book that introduces young readers to the lives of the first people to arrive in the Copán valley about 2300 years ago. Readers follow James and his father on their journey through the ruins, with Professor Questor sharing his wealth of knowledge about the Mayáns and their ancient civilization and answering James’s questions along the way.
The Lil Diva (10) just finished studying this ancient civilization in school, so she truly enjoyed reading the book with me. My Copán Adventure could be used to supplement school learning or in a homeschooling program. It offers a fun and interesting way to learn more about the Mayáns and their culture. What I found most interesting is the author’s note, which makes mention of some of the hypotheses scientists have formed about the fall of the Copán dynasty. One of the ideas is that the destruction of their forests by overbuilding and depleting their natural resources had an impact on their survival. This helps young readers to make the connection between ancient times and their modern world.
This is definitely a book I’m glad to have as part of my daughters’ library.

I received a PDF version of this book directly from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. Guardian Angel Publishing also released my first book and Eugene Ruble illustrated it. I received no monetary compensation for providing this review.
I love books that educate while they entertain. This is certainly true of Fifo “50 States” by Hayley Rose.
In this fun, rhyming adventure, Fifo the Bear invites children to join him on his imaginary tour of the 50 states of America. From Alabama to Arkansas, from Georgia to Indiana, from Missouri to New Mexico, and beyond, readers learn capitals, state flowers, native birds, and more.
The states are listed in alphabetical order, which I love, and the repetitive rhymes encourage memorization. Each state’s page also includes the state’s motto. The charming illustrations by artist Jessie B. Orlet include each state flower, bird, and flag, but also other items the state is famous for, which creates an avenue for additional discussion.
I wish I had this book when my daughter was studying U.S. capitals earlier this year.
I highly recommend Fifo “50 States” by Hayley Rose. Learning should always be this much fun.

The Junior Geography Detective Squad (JGDS) returns in Book 3, State of Reservations by Elysabeth Eldering.
The adventure continues with the third book in this fabulous series for middle grade students. When Matt gets a surprise visit from Jolene, they decide to use his Junior Geography Detective Squad video game to study for an upcoming test. As usual, they place their bets, and the loser has to do whatever it is the winner has chosen–in this case, Matt will have to carry Jolene’s dance bag and participate in warm ups at her ballet class or Jolene will have to come to the skateboard park dressed in grungy clothes and watch Matt’s team compete on Saturday. Neither seems appealing and they are both determined to be the first one to figure out the clues and correctly guess the state in question.
I’ve been a fan of this series since it began. It’s a great way to help children learn interesting facts about the United States and it encourages them to learn more once the last page is turned. New characters pop up alongside the regular cast of characters in each book, which keeps readers eager to pick up the next book in the series. The bets are funny and it’s entertaining to read along and see who ends up winning and witnessing the losers’ reactions. As with other books in the series, there is a section that includes additional facts about the state covered in the current book. There is also a set of discussion questions at the end.
I have a couple of tiny nitpicks for this one. I wasn’t as pleased with the illustrations in this book as compared to the previous two. There was one illustration I didn’t understand at all and another where I couldn’t even identify what the object in the illustration was until I read the text. I also noticed that the back cover spells Jolene’s name wrong twice. The word “Detective” was also left out of the series name on the back cover. Perhaps I received an ARC, but the book isn’t identified as one.
Those small challenges don’t take away from a great story that will entertain and educate your children. State of Reservations by Elysabeth Eldering is just another reason for me to love the Junior Geography Detective Squad series. I’m looking forward to the next book.
