Used Oops! (USED)

product image
$4.00
The mishaps never end as TJ's "helpers" from the 23rd century--Tuna and Herby--continue to study TJ as she learns the valuable lessons she'll need to become a future world leader. In "Oops!, " TJ learns the importance of speaking and thinking well of people even when they are difficult, thanks to the Thought Broadcaster Pen, which exposes the thoughts of everyone it hits. As usual, Tuna and Herby's attempts to fix the pen only make things worse--now all of TJ's thoughts become reality! As she fights not to return meanness to others (and to clean up the disasters her thoughts cause, like turning whiny TV star Hesper Breakahart into a giant baby), TJ learns from her dad a little more about how her mother handled things: She kept reminding herself that each of us is God's creation. And no matter how mean people may be, we all need to be loved. The same message also unfolds through a side story of classmate Chad Steel learning to treat a mean boy better.

Who In The World Was The Secretive Printer? : The Story Of Johannes Gutenberg

product image
$9.50
Outstanding illustrations from Jed Mickle complement the fabulous story, giving second-grade readers insight into the life of this influential figure.

About the series: The classical curriculum introduces even the youngest student to the pleasures of true learning. Elementary students learn history not through predigested textbooks with multiple-choice answers, but through reading the stories of history. Unfortunately, biographies of great men and women of the past are almost all written for older students, limiting the ability of young students to explore history through reading. Libraries are crammed with biographies written for high school students and adults--while beginning readers are provided with a shelf full of junior-level books about football players, NASCAR drivers, and movie stars.

Now, Peace Hill Press puts real history back into the grasp of the youngest historians with the Who in the World Biography Series. The first entries in the series provide young readers and their parents and teachers with biographies of great men and women of the Middle Ages. Designed to be used as part of The Story of the World curriculum, these biographies give beginning historians in grades 2-4 a chance to explore beyond the textbook. An audio version is also available separately.
