Homeschool Specialists' Review
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.

They look forward to reading this each day and doing the projects at the end of the chapters. This book is written to children so the words are not too big and it explains this so they can understand and actually learn about our solar system. My boys can't wait to tell people what they have learned from this book each day. They are actually excited about doing their school work with this book.

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.
