After getting through the K and 5th grade books in 5-6 weeks, I bought the whole set. My kids loved these so much they wanted to do more than planned for the day. The material is thought provoking and my kids learned a lot from the books. I recommend this series to all my friends!
We have been enjoying using this series, supplementing our science and nature studies by reading from them two times a week. The Nature Readers are meaty, interesting, and tailored to the child's reading level. They are also refreshing in that they give the glory of creation back to its Creator.I only wish that they were arranged slightly differently -- with the appropriate questions at the end of a day's worth of reading, instead of at the end of the particular section. I have to plan out in advance which questions are appropriate to ask for the day's assignment, since we are not using it as a read-aloud, but as an actual reader.The books also assume that the reader is in a temperate climate, calling different species of birds and animals "common," when they are completely uncommon to our desert surroundings. So, we have had to adapt the text, the suggestions for activities, and questions from time to time.Still, it is a very worthwhile series, and I recommend it.
We were thrilled with this entire series. My children read these when they were young as part of their schooling, then read them again just for the pleasure of it! There is a lot packed into these little stories. We learned much about nature and truly enjoyed it! Do not buy just one of these, buy the entire series. They make great read-alouds.
