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.
I am thrilled with the Apologia Exploring Creation with Astronomy Textbook! The text is already divided into lessons for you - YAY! I love this!. The pictures are fantastic and I love the "unit study" approach you get when using this for a science curriculum.
*ENJOYMENT: "Let's do Science!" is frequently heard in our home. I give full credit to Apologia. We enjoy "Exploring Creation with Astronomy" due to its conversational writing style. I recommend this book for your home library whether your children homeschool, attend private school, or attend public school.
*CHEWABLE BITS : The set-up of this book makes it simple to divide readings, projects & experiments into manageable sections.
*AESTHETICS: My youngest loves to take the book off the shelf and peruse through this book, as well as the other Fulbright Science books. Interesting pictures are included.
