BJ BookLinks are designed to link novels to content areas (science, Heritage Studies, math) and life skills (cooking, music, crafts). Each set includes a pocket folder with directions for enrichment activities; a 105-page softcover teaching guide with lesson plans, vocabulary, and reproducible work pages (answer key included); and the book itself. Children of the Storm, the autobiography of Natasha Vins, shows how life was for Christians living in the Soviet Union. When her father is forced to spend time in hiding and in prison, Natasha looks to her grandmother for spiritual guidance. In her teens, however, Natasha reaches a personal crossroad: will she follow Christ into poverty, or renounce him for the opportunities and open doors of higher education? Grades 4-8.
