Review on:

"World of Science" by Master Books
I believe this book would be categorized as "General Science" with an intended audience of elementary students and on into middle school. It is designed for use within the home school setting. However, I believe it would be useful in the home library and utilized by the entire family - from elementary age children through the adults in the home. The typeface is in large format which seems to indicate its being d

As a Christian homeschooling parent, I find my beliefs are at odds with many resources in the various fields of science available to teach my daughter, but World of Science is exactly how I think science should be represented. This book is not apologetics; it does not try to prove God existence through scientific means. Instead, it states God created everything straightforwardly and then details our limited understanding of the wonders of His creation, which is what science really should be. For ...more

The World of Science is published by My Father's World and Master Books. Master Books is a division of New Leaf Publishing Group.

In this world, it is hard to find books that talk about and teach science from a Creation point of view. New Leaf Publishing has published a book that does just that, The World of Science.

This book is hardcover and has 240+ pages with over 800 colored pictures in it. It has 7 sections in the book; Matter and Chemicals, Energy, Motion and Machines, Electricity and Magne
It seems like lately all I’ve done is post about science related happenings – such as our field trips to the science museums in our area and now this, The World of Science published by Master Books. This is a beautiful hardcovered book that has 256 pages that are beautifully illustrated – which in my estimation could be a hard thing to do when discussing the things of science.

If you’re like me then you want to make sure that you are giving your children books that agree with a Biblical worldview

My kids take after my husband in the science department. I'm not a huge science person. I always made good grades in science but it's a little too.....messy for me! Plus I just don't think my mind operates the way "scientists" do. I found a Science cheat sheet though! World of Science is a big ol book of scientific facts based on Christian principles! It is filled with section after section of eye catching pictures and mind filling information. Given the chance, Hubby would sit and read this cov ...more

Master Books recently sent me two new resources: The World Of Animals and The World Of Science.

I am completely enthralled with both of them!

The World Of Science is mind blowing! Covering a wide variety of topics, from the atomic level to the vast reaches of space, The World Of Science does it all.

Each topic is written so that kids can understand it easily, and so can adults! I gained more from the section on electricity and magnetism than I've ever been able to comprehend before.

Each section is

This is a wonderful resource and reference book for anyone to have on hand. It has the feel of a “textbook” to it and is filled with both beautifully colored pictures and meaty bits of information to look through. I think that even before kids can read, they will enjoying “reading” this book over and over again. There is a lot of data in here for older kids and even adults to gain knowledge from.

The sections covered in this science book are:

Matter and Chemicals
Energy, Motion, and Machines

My thoughts-

I really enjoyed looking at and studying this book. I have always enjoyed learning about science and World of Science discusses different areas of science to help me show my children the basics.

The kids and I had a lot of fun picking out the sections we would read and also learning about the scientists who were involved.

The most exciting part about the book was the selection of experiments we could choose from. It will be fun in future years to read sections of the book and the do t

This was first published by Parragon Publishing and has 248 pages, including a glossary and index. The text incorporates everything you could ever think of wanting to know about science!! There are seven sections: Matter and Chemicals; Energy, Motion and Machines; Electricity and Magnetism; Light and Sound; Earth and Life; Space and Time; and even a section on Science Experiments. It is inspiring to study science from a Christian viewpoint.
Lots of pictures, diag
