A Collegiate Casting-Out of Devilish Devices - Terry Pratchett 
A Collegiate Casting-Out of Devilish Devices - Terry Pratchett

Pratchett held a keen understanding of academia, as well as of politics, policing, law, assassination, and another myriad subjects that his background wouldn't suggest he was properly educated to address. Clearly the man Terry Pratchett was insufficiently educated to produce such brilliant witty novels. He was no doubt a front for some other writer who had an extensive advanced education in various specialties. It's the only reasonable explanation.

 

Hmmm. I wonder if I can get a grant to research the possibility?

 

Story available online.

What Do You Know about Wildfires?
Jaw-Dropping Geography: Fun Learning Fac... Jaw-Dropping Geography: Fun Learning Facts About Wicked Wildfires: Illustrated Fun Learning For Kids (Volume 1) - Jess Roche

I know that wildfires are currently raging in Montana and that people are evacuating. I know that there are times where I can be outside and smell the smoke from that wildfire (the meteorologists even said that it has to do with how the winds are blowing from Montana to us). I know that they can be nature started or man started. This book was full of good information that I was not aware of. Since my daughters had been asking questions about the wildfires, this is now an assigned reading for them. 

 

Yep, I read things before assigning, it allows me to ask them questions after they say they read it. I got this book for free, but it is inexpensive.

Geography
Jaw-Dropping Geography: Fun Learning Facts About Rambunctious Ruins: Illustrated Fun Learning For Kids - Jess Roche

I did enjoy this book more than the others. My one complaint was that the book was put together in an unusual fashion and that I wished that the sites had been grouped by area or time frame. It seemed to jump from one location (Europe, to Asia, to South America, etc). The photos again were beautiful and the author did include some good information that might prompt a student to want to know more.

Another Book for History Class
Civil War Forts (Uhc) - Victor Brooks

This year we are studying the Civil War. We are looking at what led to the Civil War and the Battles. While I sat at the library waiting for my girls, I spied this book (and about 6 others) sitting near where I was and grabbed them up to see if they would be good for the lessons. 

 

I started the one yesterday and finished it this morning. It is a fast read and very good information on the Forts that were battled over and why they were battled over and how the fight for it took place. 

 

The front before the forts lists dates and the order that the battles took place. The first shot of the Civil War, by whom and where. First person to die in the Civil War and how that happened (an accident during a celebration). 

 

The author also talks about how the different generals and officers knew each other and their connections and their feelings about this war. 

 

On the whole, I really enjoyed this book and the information it contained. Definitely, recommend this book to others who homeschool or just want more information. This was found in the "Teen" Room at the library.
