I have yet to use this text with our daughter, Awana, or a homeschool class during the 2016-17 school year; however, I am excited to do so. The presentation of the material is beautiful. The style of writing flows easily and guides the reader through the concepts. The activities suggested and the potential of time spent with your child or other students have far-reaching potential for God's glory.
For our family it's the content that draws us to this book. The Biblical worldview is rivaled by no other approach, particular church doctrine, or "philosophy" on which to live. We are excited about the impact this will have not only on our daughter, Awana clubbers, and homeschool students, but also on our family as a whole.
I have to say this is one of the most in-depth Bible studies I have ever come across for elementary students. Due to the extensive content, my second grader gets a little lost if we do too much at one time. I have found the junior notebook to be a valuable addition to this book, and we use the lesson plans in the junior notebook, so that it is broken down into reasonable amounts of reading and work for my second grader. It's not for the faint of heart or for a quick Bible lesson! This study really dives into the Bible with great illustrated stories and examples for the kids to relate to. A little overwhelming for us, but I had to give it 5 stars for the amazing content and quality!
I cannot stress enough how wonderful and how important this book is. The reason I homeschool my children is to give them a Christian worldview, and out of all the books I have used in nine years of teaching, this is by far my favorite. We can't wait to start our next in the series!
Hands down this has been the best world view curriculum I've seen! My daughter is hands on and loves to "dig in" to this curriculum. We bought the CD to go along with he studies so she could follow along in a quiet place and reflect upon what is being taught. The stories are so interesting and she'll come and tell me all she's learned that day. Thank you for putting together such a great curriculum! P.S. when she's finished with this book is there another?
