I coveted these books for a very long time before buying them. I never wanted to use them as a curriculum but rather as reference books. There is SOO much information packed into these books about creatures that it is hard to find interesting information about elsewhere. I wasn't sure the children would like reading through these but I decided to give it a go for the summer term. They LOVED this book and are anxious to start the next and won't even hear of waiting till next summer to start Zoolo ...more

This book is a highlight of our school day. It is an exceptionally well written book and full of photos and diagrams that fully explain to a young grade school student what might otherwise be difficult terms like "echolocation", "airfoil", and "binomial nomenclature." Sprinkled in are some pretty fun and easy to do at home experiments. One simple one has been to set an egg on our counter and candle it everyday to see the changes that take place. And YES it is most emphatically CHRISTIAN, so if t ...more

I'm not a "science person" but I'll mark this high based on readability, information and interest. It can be difficult to find books that are easy to read out loud, without a lot of bubbles with extra info all over the page. This book would be fine for a student to read independantly, but also worked well as a read aloud. The book included enough information for the kids to be interested in the subject matter. I find the more the student knows about a subject the more they enjoy it. We wanted in ...more

Well, I feel like I'm the only person on the planet who doesn't like this series, but I don't. And here are the reasons why:

1. The author likes to "chat", have little conversations with you like she's sitting right there with you. That bugged. It was confusing for my kids because I kept reading "I" but it wasn't me, it was the author. And it takes up so much stinking time. I kept thinking "get on with it - I have a ton of other things to do today!" I found myself skipping over those parts so we

Excellent science curriculum. My kids loved the experiments. Highly recommend the journal that goes along with it.

I was so blessed to find these books! I didn't know I loved science until we started using these books for school at home. The notebooking journals that go with them are fantastic. Ms. Fulbright has great insight and a spiritual mind that appeals to us. Her ideas are interesting and her lessons are well presented. It's so completely false that science and religion are incompatible - they beautifully compliment each other! Who is the Master Biologist, after all?

My kids were very attentive, asked great questions, and enjoyed this book a lot. It does go into information you would not find in a general textbook which we enjoyed. I also like how easy the experiements are presented as sometimes we would not do them, but my kids could go back and do them themselves when they were inspired.
