    From angelfish to zebra, this coloring book features animals to color for every letter of the alphabet. Each page contains detailed, labeled illustrations of five or more animals whose names begin with a specific letter of the alphabet. The animals are a mix of well-known and "exotic." For example, the "Q" page contains the following animals: queen butterfly, quail, Queensland grouper, quokka, quuah, and quetzal. For an additional challenge, the back of the book shows some of the animals again, without their names. Can you write the first letter of the animal's name on the line? 31 pgs. ~ Lisa

    A simple handwriting workbook from Christian Light Publications that not only provides practice in cursive writing, but presents interesting facts about birds, bugs, and butterflies as well. There are 72 lessons included, which take between 15-20 minutes each to complete. Designed to provide practice after students have already mastered letter formation, the book reinforces skills by having them write lower and upper case letters and number words one to ten. They also copy the twenty-third Psalm; write short sentences about birds, bugs, and butterflies; and copy simple nature poems. Black and white illustrations accompany the informational tidbits, and all the writing lines have dotted midlines. The book opens up from the top instead of from side to side, and teacher's notes are provided in a small font on the bottom of the worksheets. A great workbook for practicing cursive. 72 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

You'll also get an Online Redemption Voucherfor five Painted Lady caterpillars, butterfly feeding kit, instructions for care, plus interesting butterfly facts.

Enough nutrient is included in the container for the caterpillars as they mature into butterflies, and after that you feed them with the aid of your butterfly feeding kit.

    Heavy on the science side of gardening rather than just the aesthetics, this book holds plenty of both information and projects. There are five chapters – "Living in a Community," "Plants are Essential for Life," "Nature's Garden," "Plants Need Animals!" and "Nature Recycles." Inside these chapters kids will learn about soil and its composition, roots, weeds, friendly and not-so friendly garden insects, photosynthesis, plants as food, trees, flowers and pollination, butterflies and hummingbirds, garden critters, decomposition and composting, the water cycle, and more. Some of the projects include pressing plants, keeping a nature journal, making a root-view garden, planning a garden, making a scarecrow, looking at a soil sample, experimenting with watering, making a bird feeder, observing the wildlife in your nature area, planting a butterfly garden in a window box, and going on a see hunt, among others. The pages themselves are appealing to the eye and engaging, offering a nice blend of colorful illustrations, interesting text, and clear directions for the projects. For any family or child interested in gaining solid knowledge of what goes on in the garden – behind the scenes! 120 pgs. – Melissa

    I have long been interested in the evolution/creationism debate. One often-made point is to look at many features in nature as undeniable proof of God's fingerprints. This 6-DVD set takes the same tack, examining the magnitude of the galaxy down to the complexity of the human body. The focus of the set is not on the debate, but rather to show and explain things like the weather from a creationist viewpoint. It will take you some time to get through them; total running time is 10 hours. Volume 1 covers the galaxy and solar system, including some recent discoveries. Volume 2 talks about planet Earth, taking you on a tour of our unique planet, and shows you some of the more complicated systems that we take for granted. Volume 3 goes through the layers of the earth and covers our water phenomena like storms and floods. Volume 4 focuses more exclusively on wind and its marvels. Volume 5 covers animal life and the ingenuities that are beyond anything humans can construct. Volume 6 covers human life in all its magnificence. A notable set in its approach, a veritable curriculum in its depth, and a refreshing change from the Science Channel and its never-ending parade of evolutionary material.  Extra features include an additional 2 full length programs: In His Prescence and Be Thou My Vision. ~ Mark

    This set of three DVDs covers some similar ground as the book course above, but offers some distinct differences. The set of DVDs provides six lessons (each approximately an hour long) which focus on specific drawing topics while the book format contains 47 smaller, more specific lessons. Because of the format and structure of the DVD course, it would work well as a shorter course for use with multiple children or as a family, and the visual demonstrations would be helpful for students (and parents!) that have not had much experience drawing. Each lesson covers some specifics about what to write and how to maintain the journal, along with several drawing assignments that fit a specific topical theme. In the first lesson, viewers get an introduction to keeping a nature journal and will learn what to write, where to draw, and how to mix colors and draw flowers. Lessons 2-6 are centered around drawing trees, landscapes, the four seasons (and the color wheel), insects/butterflies/birds, and "treasures in nature" (pine cones, acorns, etc.), respectively. Each lesson discusses the writing portion of the journal a bit, then turns to drawing exercises, which Mr. Stebbing demonstrates on-camera. Recommended supplies include a hardbound, unlined sketchbook, a set of 12 colored pencils, black pens (different sizes for drawing and writing), water-soluble markers, a brush to blend markers like watercolor, glossy paper for marker drawing, a small drawing board (optional) and small drawing pad (optional). – Jess

      This kit is much like the Live Butterfly Garden (#003539) except it is more spacious. This butterfly habitat stands 18” tall and has a diameter of 15”. It is also made out of a see-through mesh, it “pops up” to stand on its own, and it can be folded flat using the hook-and-loop fastener straps that are attached to the top of the habitat (these can also be used to hang the butterfly pavilion).  This kit comes with a voucher for five Painted Lady caterpillars and food for them as well. Simply redeem your voucher online at InsectLore.com (additional shipping and handling fee is required when you redeem your voucher) and your caterpillars will be delivered to your front door. Detailed instructions, a pipette for butterfly feeding and Painted Lady butterfly Life Cycle Stages Figures are also included in the kit.  Please note that caterpillars can only be shipped during mild weather and within the continental US and Alaska. Caterpillars are not shipped to Canada or Hawaii.
