Homeschool Specialists' Review

I've always been fascinated with the universe. So, when I was given the opportunity to write reviews for CBD, I chose this astronomy book without hesitation. With an easy-to-understand text, colorful illustrations, and actual photos of cosmic bodies, this curriculum is tons of fun for the whole family!

The elementary level is designed for kindergarten through grade 6, and some of the activities also offer different versions for younger or older students so you can customize it for your child. There are notebooking journals available that include all the questions from the textbook and additional exercises, such as crossword puzzles, to reinforce the lessons. We used the notebooking journal, as well as a junior notebooking journal for younger students not as proficient in reading and writing.

My favorite part of this book is the experiments and hands-on activities. Who wouldn't love to build a rocket or create a cloud? (And we're talking a real cloud, not a cotton ball cloud!) It even includes the classic "burn a leaf with a magnifying glass" activity. All three of my younger brothers used this book, and when I asked them about it, they responded, "It was awesome!" All in all, a wonderful and informative textbook! 176 pages, hardcover from Apologia.

    My children love these science books and beg to study science. As a child I dreaded science. To have found academically sound books full of truth, which children enjoy, thrills my heart! My 6th grader will often read them to her younger siblings without me. My kindergartener will join in, cheerfully. My high schooler, has her own books & studies; but, will read this for free reading... I highly recommend this book & the entire series!

    This is our second year using Apologia for Science. We enjoyed last year (Zoology I) and are absolutely loving this year (Astronomy). Both years I asked my student what he'd like to study and then purchased that particular curriculum. That's one of the beauties of Apologia, there's no set order in which to use their Science curriculum. This allows the student to explore subjects that correlate with their current interests and allows the the teacher to assist in the process. (I have encouraged waiting to complete the Botany and Anatomy books until my student is a little older.) Our family loves being able to educate our children with Christian curriculum that is well designed, thought through, and ties everything back to our Creator. Apologia's the best! =)

    I bought this book based on a collection of reasons, but particularly because a trusted friend and veteran homeschooler recommended it. It has supremely surpassed my expectations with its more in-depth study of God's beautiful and magnificient creation of our solar system! I am using it for a fourth-grader and he is enjoying it as much as I am!

    If your child is up to doing a lot of reading for 1st grade i would recommend this subject. This book should have a grade limit of 3rd grade or higher. Great book! It came in the mail in awesome condition.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Jeannie Fulbright
Submitted: July 04, 2004

    Tell us a little about yourself.  My name is Jeannie Fulbright. I am a veteran homeschooling mom with four children. I am a graduate of the University of Texas. Though I minored in science, my emphasis was in writing. I write for many homeschool publications. I also speak at homeschool conferences and smaller homeschool groups. My husband and I live with our family in Georgia.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  The Lord placed upon my heart a calling to write this series when I couldn't find Charlotte Mason style "living books" that taught science from the Biblical Creationist perspective. I also wanted science to be easier to fit into a busy homeschooling day. One only needs to pick up the book and begin reading; no teacher's manual, no additional resources are needed. One book is all the whole family needs to become amateur astronomers!

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  My hope is that Christians will be blessed by the God-glorifying text that continually points them to their Creator. I pray that students will be grounded in a the thoroughly biblical worldview presented throughout this book. My dream is that the solid foundation formed and the strengthening of their faith through this will arm students to be defenders of the faith as they enter the battle zone.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  This book was written to give homeschool parents a way to teach in-depth creation science to all their children at once. My desire was to write a book that you could cuddle up on the couch with and read to every elementary student in your home at once. The older students will grasp more than the younger students; but they will all learn and enjoy science at their own level. And the information is interesting enough for even high school students to learn (mom and dad too!). The text is written in a conversational style that is engaging to the reader. Concepts such as nuclear fusion are explained in a way that even a five year old could understand. And what a delight to hear your five year old explaining to his grandparents how nuclear fusion is evidence for Creation! The activities are often separated between younger students and older students. Every lesson begins with reading from the text. After that the child works on his notebook, which is essentially the creating of his own astronomy book. Then a creative exercise to help with retention is introduced. Every lesson ends with a relevant hands-on project. Spending your science year studying astronomy will both challenge and bless your family. Your students will come away with a deeper understanding of God's universe and the evidence therein for Creation. Your faith will be strengthened as you see God's perfect design and the beauty He placed in His starry hosts. Dr. Jay Wile, my editor and publisher, has done an excellent job of tightening up all scientific concepts and making the book beautiful.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Please email me with any questions or comments. It is always such a blessing to hear from you!
