I am very happy with Apologia's journaling notebooks. Last year I attempted to use the Astronomy by Jeannie Fulbright without using the journaling notebook while my girlfriend who was doing science with us had bought the journals. I would have to say that although we very much loved the science my children's experience would have been enhanced had they had a journal to accompany it. So this year I didn't hesitate to buy 2 journals, one for each child and Christianbook.com was the only place I found that had the 'junior' journal for anatomy.
I have been doing Aplogia for such a long time with my kids. In years prior, my daughter would make her own notebooks, which worked okay but THIS is awesome.....the pages are all prepared for her to draw or write. And in the back are the projects to cut out and add to her pages. I cannot be more pleased with these journals. I really love the daily lessons that they have written in the front of the book, it gives me guidance on where to start with her each day and where to end. This has made my life as a homeschool mom easier...who doesn't need that:)
I am so thrilled that I purchased the Notebooking Journal for the Anatomy & Physiology class. Totally worth the money. It provides an easy way for my kids to keep track of what they have learned in each lesson. No trying to keep up with random pieces of paper it is all in one beautifully done notebook. I can't say enough great things about the journal. It has made our class experience even better.
