  2. World War II: The Rest of the Story & How It Affects You Today, Revised Edition

    World War II: The Rest of the Story & How It Affects You Today, Revised Edition

    SKU: 5465

    $19.95

    The explosion of the battleship Maine in Havana Harbor in 1898 was the beginning of a chain reaction that eventually led to the destruction of the World Trade center and still continues today. In his two-part World War series, author Richard J. Maybury explains that an unbroken line leads directly from the Spanish-Vietnam War, the Iraq-Kuwait War, and the "War on Terror" that began September 11, 2001. Mr. Maybury explains the other side of the story, the side you are not likely to get anywhere else. In World War II: The Rest of the Story and How It Affects You Today, which focuses on the years 1935 to September 11, 2001, Mr. Maybury presents an idea-based explanation of the Second World War. He focuses on events in the Second World War and how our misunderstanding of this war led to America's subsequent wars, including the Korean and Vietnam Wars, the Iraq-Kuwait War, and the "War on Terror". Mr. Maybury also explains how these ideas and events are today the reasons why the U.S. Government gets into so many wars in far corners of the globe. Using the epistolary style of writing (using letters to tell a story), Mr. Maybury plays the part of an economist (Uncle Eric) writing a series of letters to his niece or nephew (Chris). Using stories and examples, Mr. Maybury gives interesting and clear explanations of topics that are generally thought to be too difficult for anyone but experts. Mr. Maybury warns, "beware of anyone who tells you a topic is above you or better left to experts. Many people are twice as smart as they think they are, but they've been intimidated into believing some topics are above them. You can understand almost anything if it is explained well." Learn More

  11. Wonders of Our World - Shine-a-Light

    Wonders of Our World - Shine-a-Light

    SKU: 3930

    $12.99

    Journey across our world to explore natural and man-made marvels. Peer inside ancient buildings, climb mighty mountains, dive under the surface of the sea, and much more when you shine a light behind the page and see...

    Review by Publishers Weekly: Shining a light against the pages of this interactive outing (part of the Shine-A-Light series) unveils hidden visual details. Spreads are devoted to 14 natural and constructed world wonders (the Great Barrier Reef, the Great Wall of China, the Himalayas, the Taj Mahal, and others). Murphy’s gentle, bright color illustrations depict ancient structures and organic marvels. Brown writes in a q&a format, hinting at the wonders to be revealed: “This boat tour in the Philippines is heading toward a cave. Why are people wearing hard hats?” Shining a light allows the stalactites to appear before the answer is revealed on the next page. While the light effect is subtle, it invites further discovery of the monolithic constructions and remarkable vistas. Brown also reminds readers to look within their own communities: “The world is full of small wonders too—remember to watch out for them

  12. Wonders of Old: A Blank Timeline Book of World History

    Wonders of Old: A Blank Timeline Book of World History

    SKU: 4368

    $24.95

    Wonders of Old spans from 5000BC – the Present and beyond History comes alive when your student records significant historical events in his own hand. He will make connections between historical events by recording entries across academic subjects… * kingdoms * empires * rulers * scientists * literature * great writers * musicians * and so much more! It is a proven fact that completing timelines help cement historical facts for students and adults alike. A timeline can become the compilation of a student’s learning. Seeing the progression of time in the form of a timeline will allow your student to gain a better understanding of the flow of history. The truth is… many students may study the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks, the end of Hundred Years’ War between France and Britain, and the printing of the first book, the Gutenberg Bible, never realizing that these three events all happened within the same year – 1453AD. These events are seemingly unrelated and yet the use of a timeline can unlock the mystery as to why all of these events occurred within the same year. A timeline will give your student a unique perspective of time. By seeing the events of history recorded in linear progression, your students will make connections between those events in history that they might not otherwise make. Wonders of Old is divided into four historical time periods: ancient, medieval, new world and modern. Significant dates are listed at the conclusion of each section as a helpful reference. This hardcover book measures 9×12 and is printed on extra thick 70# paper for durability. Bonus CD-ROM included! The CD-ROM contains the entire Wonders of Old book in digital format so that you can print out multiple copies for additional children or extra pages to insert into your book should you run out of room on a page (doesn’t happen too often!). The CD-ROM also includes timeline category stickers that can be printed on full size sticker sheets to place within the pages of the book. Hardcover. Grades 5-12. 104 pages.
