DorieAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Introduction for Young ChildrenOctober 5, 2014DorieAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Young children of preschool and Kindergarten age will greatly benefit from this book. The photographs are amazing and the easy text will allow for children to get to know wonderful and weird creatures God has made. It could also be used for beginner readers.
In fact, to get the most out of the book, I would recommend introducing the book to toddlers. This would allow for years of viewing and readings. Toddlers could look at the pictures while grown ups or older children comment on the photograph's contents. As a child ages to preschool years, the book could easily be read aloud and used to help foster reading skills. Kindergarten and first grade students would be able to read through the book on their own. All the while, children would be learning about the amazing world God has created.
I received a copy of this book for review.
Thrift Schooling5 Stars Out Of 5An Excellent Resource!September 29, 2014Thrift SchoolingQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Here is a book that I can confidently stand behind, Weird and Wonderful Creations! This is a science book for kids that has the Creator showcased throughout!
If you've been following my blog for any amount of time then you know that I am an avid creationist and strive to find quality resources for our homeschool that support this way of thinking!
This can be quite a challenge as a "thrifty" mom because I am often drawn to used book sales. Usually if I am able to find any science goodies at these salse, for the most part they are evolution based. They may not scream evolution, but even the smallest hint of evolution based thinking often causes me to dismiss the book altogether.
With that said, I am willing to go out of my way and purchase quality creation based science materials that I can feel confident having my children read! This book is written at a second grade reading level which has been perfect for my first grader! From the moment this book arrived in the mail he has been thumbing through the exciting pictures asking me what each thing is!
From Venus fly traps to the Giant Sequoias this little first grader has gained a wealth of knowledge in a short time! Some of the pages are even easy enough for him to read himself while others are challenging enough for him to keep on keeping on! Each new fact that I've read to him has captivated his attention. There are plenty of pictures and over 200 fun facts about different plants, insects, snakes and sea creatures!
I highly recommend this book for homeschool parents and parents of children who simply love the outdoors and nature! A great gift or a great resource book! It also works well as a reader for beginning readers.
