My Thoughts:

This is an awesome book!  You can use this books in three different ways which makes it so versatile.  For our review we used it as a supplemental resource - basically just reading through facts.  It would also be perfect for a unit study or as a whole curriculum.  You can adjust the vocabulary for three different levels of ability.   

The book features great pictures that really tell the story.  I love mixed media style of the pages.  This style breaks up the pages into bite sized readings perfect for natural breaks in the curriculum.  Most of all this is a christian based science book.  On page 19 there is bible references to correlate with what you are learning.

You can purchase this book at or amazon.  There is additional information at, as well.  Join us tonight on Facebook for a special party event where we will discuss this book!
