    Required for Apologia’s 2nd edition Human Body course, this anatomy coloring book provides an innovative way to reinforce human anatomy for any study of the human body. Although designed for high school, middle school students may also benefit from this one. Each spread offers a clear and precise illustration with concise textual information as well as space for labeling the illustration. Topics included are anatomical position and terms, planes of the body, cells/tissues, skeletal system, joints, nervous system, sense organs, endocrine system, cardiovascular system, lymphatic system, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system, male and female reproductive systems and fetal development. A neat feature about this coloring book is the inclusion of 96 tear-out muscle flashcards for memorization. On the flip side, a drawback is that the publisher elected to place the answers to the diagrams at the bottom of the same page - although my children may be the only ones who would be tempted to take the easy way out when labeling the diagrams! I would consider covering up the answers to encourage them to research the correct answers. 335 pages plus flashcards, pb. ~ Deanne

    Recommended for use with Apologia's Human Body: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made 1st Edition, although with the most recent revision of the coloring book, the page numbers no longer match up. This is very thorough, with over 160 coloring pages. With the revision to the 4th edition, the once-cluttery pages have been expanded to two-page spreads with most of the text on one page and the illustration(s) to color on the facing page. Other changes include reorganization of some topics and some updates to the text and terminology. Compared to the Kaplan and Princeton Review books, the drawings and information are a bit more detailed. This coloring book also seems more advanced than the other two, appropriate for high school or college students while the Kaplan book seems more appropriate for junior high or high school. Also includes an index and detailed glossary. - Melissa

    Coloring books help you to concentrate on a subject. This Dover book contains scientifically accurate renderings of the body organs and major systems for you to color while you study. It has a surprising amount of detail for an inexpensive book. Divided into 11 different sections, it covers all major body systems. Diagrams of systems are divided into numbered sections like color-by-number pictures. A chart lists the name of each body part and what color to use. A good, low-cost starter on anatomy.

    A perfect introduction to the human body for a primary child! In this book, the body is explained, literally, piece by piece, as children add body parts to their own body outline! The book is full of reproducible handouts and patterns that tell you what the part of the body does and what color to make the organ. First you should explain the functions of the body part to start out your study. Then you cut, paste, and follow directions to place the body part correctly on each child's traced body outline. I would recommend only covering one or two body parts in a day. Then there are instructions on how to turn the explanation sheets into a small booklet that they children can keep! With the help of this book, your children will be introduced to the brain, heart, kidneys, bladder, cells, spleen, pancreas, gall bladder, reproductive organs, skeleton, muscles, stomach, intestines, liver, lungs, skin, eyes, nose, ears, tongue, and face. A "personal" approach to studying the human body! 40 pgs, pb. - elise

    Break out the scissors, tape, paste and paper and make a stomach book, 3-D skeleton, a growing-tooth "movie," a cardboard spinal column, manipulative eye, and more! The book begins with a study of the sense organs: tongue, eye, ear, nose, and skin. Building models of each helps children understand how they work. The rest of the book is on body systems: skeletal, digestive, respiratory, circulatory, excretory, and muscular. Building models of the systems and some of their components after discussing them and performing some illustrative activities provides for active learning. Model patterns used are reproducible, so everyone can join in.

    The Lamb's Book of Art is an excellent starting point for any beginning artist. The lessons and instructions are easy to follow and could be used for self-study for an older child. A variety of concepts are taught like drawing, color theory, portraits, anatomy, nature studies, cartooning, perspective, shading, lettering, and more. The lessons are fun, and you won't find yourself getting bored with monotonous activities. Plus, the book comes from a Christian publisher and Bible verses accompany most lessons. Art doesn't have to be hopeless! Lessons are reproducible for in home use and there are plenty of blank pages in the book to create art on.

    This book was revised in 2006 and is higher quality than the original. The basic lessons and format are the same, but there are now 168 pages instead of 128, with easier to read text and a fun set of five "marker cards" for additional assignments. Instead of the spiral binding of the original book, this edition sports a perfect binding. With this upgraded edition, they've taken a good thing and made it even better.

    Ever seem like all the good anatomy coloring books are for older students? Not this one! Each page in this coloring book focuses on one anatomical topic, with a mix of facts and a black-and-white drawings to color. Tidbits of information are given in little square bubbles with arrows pointing at the drawing. The drawings are detailed, but large and perfect for coloring with fine-point markers or colored pencils. For example, on the page explaining joints, a see-through drawing of a boy bending and moving features several boxes that show how pivot, elbow, and ball-and-socket joints work. Other pages focus on types of cells, types of muscles, how blood flows through the heart, the circulatory system, the lymphatic system, types of blood cells, what happens when you breathe, the digestive system and process, the brain and senses, nerve cells, and much more! A perfect complement to any elementary study of the human body! 30 pgs, pb. – Jess

      My children loved to get lost in a good encyclopedia. Maybe that sounds odd today, but I am still a firm believer in having accessible, quality books available for children to read when curiosity peaks. Lavishly illustrated and divided into two parts, Physical and Life Science, this resource is jam packed with information, fun facts, hands-on activities and intermingled science related jokes. The introductory section explains what science is, how scientists work and the scientific theory before describing the difference between physical and life science and going deeper into respective areas. Evolutionary content.

      Physical science is separated into four sections: matter, forces and machines, energy, and electronics. Subtopics are presented in a 2-page spread that includes photographs and colorful graphics, clearly explained textual information, historical or unique fun facts, activities or jokes. A sampling of topics includes chemistry basics, organic chemistry, noble gases, gravity, friction, radio waves, satellites, nuclear power, sound waves and more.

      Life Science is separated into four sections: the universe, life on earth, human body and planet earth. Subtopics are presented similarly to the physical science section. A sampling of topics includes the big bang, solar system, classification of living things, microbes, reptiles, ancient medicine, genes, reproduction and growth, volcanoes, earthquakes, the earth’s age, rocks and minerals, biomes conservationism, and more. Includes websites, books and film recommendations, a glossary, and index. An excellent resource for your home or school library. 303 pgs, hc. ~ Deanne

      Basher Science books have a reputation for providing detailed science information in a child-friendly, understandable way. Each 2-page spread provides science terms and explanations along with animated characters illustrating the science explanations. Chapters are sequential and begin with the basics types of microbugs before introducing basic information on how bacteria survive, move and communicate. The following chapters explain body battlers including our human body defenses and a host of illnesses like mycobacterium tuberculosis, the flu virus, Ebola and a swarm of others. The final chapter looks at our ‘Bug Buddies,’ those microbes that are beneficial to mankind. Includes index, glossary and colorful poster that is perforated for easy removal. Children will be amazed to learn it’s a small world after all! SC. 128 pgs. ~Deanne

    My eight-year-old's first reaction to this book was an emphatic "Cool!" Brilliant color pictures and graphics welcome you to the world of the microscopic. What would a DNA strand look like if magnified 7 million times? How about greatly magnified parts of plants, insects, and the human body? Find out here. Each section shows amazing color pictures of dramatically magnified objects and organisms. For example, the Plant and Fungi chapter shows a greatly enlarged picture of water plants called desmids and diatoms. Instructions are given for collecting pond or lake water so that you can view the microscopic life in a drop of water. Although much of the book depicts and describes the microscopic world, the latter part of the book is devoted to how microscopes work, from a standard lens microscope to the electron- scanning microscope. Pointers are given for buying a microscope and using advanced techniques for preparing various types of slides and mounts. A wonderful resource for any student interested in the "hidden" world around us. - Jerry

      I used to love encyclopedias as a kid! Every page had something interesting and wonderful to learn. You get the same sense of wonder when it is all in one book (not a set of 30 books like the old days)! This is a large book with lots of color photos and illustrations. The text is presented in short paragraphs, captions and text boxes. The language is simple but full of great vocabulary words. Topics covered include: the human body, people/places, the arts, Earth, animals/plants, science/technology and the universe. This is an updated edition, but the copyright is 2009. I looked for outdated information and found a few things: Pluto is still called a dwarf planet, there is a huge iPod shown as being cutting edge technology, also some things about computer games and the internet are passé, and the mobile phone shown is a flip phone. The rest of the book stands up to today’s information. You can certainly use it as a resource for science and social studies. Also, this book mentions prehistoric life as being millions of years ago, so it is not from a Christian worldview. 144pp, sc, 9.5x12” ~ Sara

    Ladies and gentlemen, may I present you to…your body! This is human anatomy like you’ve never seen it before! Subtitled “The All-Singing, All-Dancing Anatomy Extravaganza,” the show is hosted by a skeleton on a stage. He introduces all the systems of the human body: skeletal, muscular, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, excretory, endocrine, reproductive, immune, and nervous; and explores the senses. Complex anatomical terms and processes are explained in an easily understandable way, accompanied by detailed illustrations. Each process is explained from the ground up, so you can see how the information builds upon itself and understand how the whole system works in a very intricate way. With a graphic novel type feel, witty and entertaining text, adorable characters (who knew they could make oxygen molecules adorable?), endless colorful illustrations, and tons of solid information, you can’t help but be enthralled. Your kids will want to read this one just for fun! 233 pgs, pb. ~ Megan

    If you're studying caterpillars and butterflies, this would be an incredible resource. It's part field guide, part how-to guide, and it introduces the basics of the caterpillar/butterfly life cycle as well. The first pages show examples of different types of caterpillars and identify caterpillar anatomy. Then readers learn about the life cycle, with photos of a particular moth at each step as an example. The next several pages discuss keeping a caterpillar to observe and how to house and feed it. The remainder of the book introduces kids to caterpillar and butterfly/moth phases of several common species, along with a list of foods in case they would have the opportunity to keep a caterpillar of that species. I really appreciate the abundance of full-color photos throughout, which give the reader lots to look at! 32 pages, pb. - Jess

    There are plenty of products exposing the flaws of evolutionary theory, but most of them are written for high school and adults. This text from Apologetics Press is written for the middle school crowd, but not watered down. The authors, Kyle Butt and Eric Lyons, explain the evidence through topics from origins of the universe, how did life get here, what is evolution, the design of the human body and other creatures found in the animal kingdom, the fossil record, radiometric dating and assumptions about the age of the earth, dinosaurs, misconceptions about evolution of animals and of man, to scientists who believed in the Biblical creation. Each of the ten chapters is chock full of photos and illustrations in full color, scriptural support, and ends with a chapter review with fill-in-the-blank, true/false, short answer, and multiple choice questions on the chapter content. This text would be a great study to do before students move on to high school; then keep as a reference book to address specific topics that arise. This text is very affordable and puts apologetics within the grasp of your younger students. An answer key is a free download at the publisher's website - (http://www.apologeticspress.org/user_images/catalog/images/tbtans.pdf) 181 pgs. ~ Donna

    You've probably looked at or used an anatomy coloring book with your students, but this book takes the quality to a new level. This coloring book has a hardcover, 52 illustrations to color on thick durable pages, and a lot of information. The idea behind the book is that you will remember the material better if you make an association between the information and coloring a picture of the topic. The book is divided into chapters which include terminology, skin, skeletal, muscular, taste, head, brain, nervous, endocrine, lymphatic, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive, and immune systems. The illustrations are anatomically correct and include scientific labeling. Two pages are devoted to each topic with one page of information which also includes '10 things to remember' for every topic and 1 page of illustrations to color. While these don't have all of the detail you might find in some other anatomy coloring books, they are still detailed enough to be used as a supplement for any high school curriculum. This 128-page book also includes high-quality colored pencils (Faber Castell 8 color set), an eraser, and sharpener. A 52-question, fill-in-the-blank quiz is found at the conclusion of the book along with answer key and a full-color guide to the illustrations to be colored in the book. I know this book is intended for high school, but I think you could probably use it with junior high as well. The information is in an easy-to-read format and the book with materials is easy to transport with the built in pencil case. Use it as a ready reference, study tool, or reinforcement as you color a visual reminder. - Donna

    When it comes to hands-on projects, there seem to be two kinds of people in the world: those who want to assemble all the pieces necessary in the least expensive way and those who just want a complete kit so they don't have to run around and purchase supplies. If you're one of the latter, you will appreciate the wide range of equipment and tools included in this kit, as well as the comprehensive experiment guide. Like other kits from Thames & Kosmos, this one is well-produced and includes quality materials and a full-color experiment manual. The manual includes instructions for completing 100 experiments in the areas of physical science, earth and space science, and life science with specific chapters for experiments on: water, air, heat, sound, forces, magnets, electricity, electromagnetism, light and shadow, optical instruments, plants and animals, colors, human body, earth and sun, and chemistry. Looking through the manual, I recognize many experiments that are common middle-school fare such as weighing balloons with different amounts of air to show that air does have weight, making an atomizer that displays Bernoulli's Principle, changing water to ice to water vapor, observing that water expands when frozen, observing sound waves on the surface of water, swinging a cup of water to observe centrifugal force, building simple circuits, making an electromagnet, using mirrors to explore rays of light, making a camera obscura, dying carnations by placing them in colored water, listening to your heartbeat, building a sundial and many more that are often seen in curriculums or experiment books at this level. All special equipment is included, as are common objects like balloons, straws, modeling clay and black paper. Materials needed are listed at the beginning of each activity, with materials in the kit in regular font and additional materials needed in italics. Because so much is included here, materials that you provide are "basics" like water, batteries, flashlights, newspaper, and scissors. With the breadth of topics covered, this is one science kit that you'll use again and again. – Jess

    While I already knew that Ellen McHenry has a talent for making complicated topics fun and understandable for middle schoolers, I was impressed all over again when I saw this study on the brain. I mean, it seems manageable to teach chemistry to kids, but neurology? Things can get complicated when you start following nerve pathways across and through the brain! However, I was relieved to see that you don't need to be a brain surgeon to teach this course. The book has two parts – a student booklet and a teacher's section, both of which include reproducibles that you can copy for your own family or one classroom. The student booklet is at the core of the course, and includes all of the text and text-based activities. There are ten topical chapters in the booklet, plus "half-chapters" that end in .5 and cover "extras" that you could choose to cover or skip, depending on your interest and time available. The chapters cover the history of brain research, basic brain anatomy, the right and left sides of the brain, the parts of the brain and their functions, brain cells, neurons, learning and memory, the brain's connection to the body, sleep and brain doctors. Each chapter includes several pages of friendly, straight-forward text on the topic, augmented by black-and-white graphics and the little fingerprint guys you might recognize from the author's chemistry programs. Several review activities are provided at the end of each chapter. These are quite wide-ranging in format, so much so that I'm just going to have to give you specific examples! For instance, in the first chapter on brain research, the first activity asks students to research different brain scans on the internet and answer question about each, then read to find out more about Phineas Gage (the strangest story in brain research!), and finally, students complete a color-by-number "PET Scan." In the chapter about brain parts and functions you'll find a crossword puzzle to complete, a diagram to color the parts of the brain, and "The Brain Song" to listen to, which is available as a download on the author's website. Other fun activities include making a 9-square puzzle of connected neurons and using the right and left sides of your brain to complete specific challenges. An answer key is provided at the end of the student portion, and contains all of the answers to activities with specific answers. The teacher's section is primarily made up of more involved, hands-on activities. These are organized by corresponding chapter and include fun ideas like making a brain "hemisphere hat" using the reproducible patterns that show the different areas of the brain, doing an MRI on an orange, making a human neuronal network, building an edible neuron, and much, much more. I was very impressed with the hands-on activities overall; they are very creative! This would be a very fun curriculum to use with a co-op, or with several of your children at one time. I would recommend finding some good text resources on the brain, as the visuals are a bit limited here, and there may be topics you'll want to read more about, but I think the content and the activities here will definitely capture children's interest! Packaged in a 3-hole, looseleaf format (no longer includes CD; all digital files are available on the author's website). – Jess

    This beautifully illustrated DK book is divided into 5 main sections, all of which highlight different features of the Earth. Gorgeous pictures and illustrations present Planet Earth, Land, Ocean, Atmosphere, and Tectonic Earth in an eye-appealing format. An introductory section titled "Dynamic Earth" gives an overview of what you can expect in the book's content as it takes you through the interactions of the earth and the forces which are constantly at work.

    The first section, Planet Earth, talks about the earth as a whole and gives the history of the earth, the earth as it exists within the universe, the anatomy of the earth, and how the earth is changing over time. Land, Ocean, and Atmosphere are the earth's 3 main environments, and each includes introductory material, features found in each environment and how they are formed, and major features highlighted with pictures and additional information. Tectonic Earth offers profiles of the Earth's 7 major plates and population density and political boundary maps. Each section is scattered throughout with thematic panels which include photos, illustrations, notable people, information, data, and statistics.

    Probably my favorite parts of this book are the references for rocks, minerals, mountains, and volcanoes. Rock and mineral guides are found in the 'Anatomy of the Earth' section of the book. These guides show full-color pictures of rock and mineral specimens and give specific information about each of them. Mineral information includes composition, hardness, color, crystal system, and specific gravity while the information for each rock specimen includes the origin, color, and grain size. The location of featured mountains and volcanoes is shown on a small map along with the type, length, and activity and or last eruption, along with other pertinent information. This book isn't just gorgeous; it is a great reference tool as well.

    The information is presented from a secular perspective. You'll find information about the Big Bang Theory, global warming, and biodiversity along with a plethora of good earth science information. ~ Donna

Packed with full-color illustrations and photographs and detailed, yet easy-to-read information, bird lovers of all ages will learn something new. The book begins with an up-close-and-personal look at the bird. Learn the finer structures within feathers, types of feathers, bird anatomy and structure including bones and internal organs, types of bills, bird senses, and much more. The second chapter talks about the various places birds call home and which types prefer which environments and habitats. Bird communication, communities, nest preferences, eggs and food are all discussed. The third chapter is in a field guide layout – introducing thirty types of birds with an introduction, size comparison, habitat, bird call, and range across the U.S.A. given. The section ends with a compact chart of all the birds discussed and the essential information about each one. Then students will learn about birds that are endangered and bird migration. The fifth chapter entails how you can interact with birds and make your yard a bird haven. There are some ideas for building projects such as nesting boxes and arbors, and ideas for keeping a calendar of the birds you see and when you see them to learn their schedules. The sixth and final chapter shows the gold-medal winning birds in lots of different events such as fastest runners, highest fliers, deepest divers, best dressed and more with short explanations of which bird species came in first. A glossary, resource list, index, and a short bird-watching quiz are all included in the appendix. So read up and head outside to put your new knowledge to the test! ~ Megan
