    This colorful series from Singapore Math introduces early concepts in life science, physical science, chemistry, and earth science to the very young. Each book focuses on one of these sciences, and contains 29 lessons and an answer key. Lessons are a page in length, with each topical lesson containing a short informational segment, follow-up questions or a hands-on activity. The material is presented in its simplest form, and most often the questions repeated at the end simply ask the student what was discussed at the top of the page, although in some cases, it might be helpful to have read a little more material on the subject as well. The range of subjects is pretty impressive, including animal habitats, parts of the ear and eye, seeds and how they sprout, electromagnets, conductors, circuits, mixing colors, evaporation, how sound is made, sinking or floating, seasons, solar system, Milky Way, constellations, meteors, food chains, and more. As an example of a lesson, one lesson in Book 3 features a short paragraph on the properties of some common materials, followed by a blank chart. The students must decide whether some other common materials such as wood, glass, plastic, rubber and others are hard, if they can be bent, if they last a long time, and if they are attracted to a magnet. After that activity, several common materials are listed, and the student must match these to the item or construction it can be used to make. All activities are generously illustrated with friendly, cartoon-like animals and objects, and altogether the books have a "fun," relaxed look about them, even though the concepts are fairly well-presented and a little more serious that I've seen in other early elementary science programs. Inexpensive and easy-to-use, this set could easily make up a complete science curriculum for the early grades, although you may want to supplement with a little more reading, especially with interesting related library books to broaden their horizons a little more. Each book used to be available separately, but it is now sold only as a set of four books. – Jess

    This 61-pc set allows children to work tactilely with fractions by applying them to circles. Plastic pieces include an avocado green whole, blue halves, green thirds, peach fourths, magenta fifths, orange sixths, pink eighths, highlighter green tenths, and purple twelfths. A transparent cylindrical box with lid holds the whole set. Show equivalents by placing the whole piece in the bottom and see what combinations of other fractions will fill the circle. You could also enhance the pieces by adding magnets to the back. ~ Ruth

    Although people have always regarded Benjamin Franklin as one of the most famous inventors in American history, few people realize that his genius was, in fact, a mouse. Yes, that's right - a mouse named Amos, who found his way to Benjamin Franklin's home one cold night. As one of those closest to Ben, Amos found it necessary to write this (amusing) portrayal of Benjamin Franklin to counter all of the stories written by those who had never even met Ben and certainly never knew that Amos was responsible for a great many of the much esteemed inventions. This classic has been amusing young readers for more than sixty years. 114 pgs. - Melissa

    Instilling a love for science in my children was always a primary goal in our early days of home-schooling. One of my secret tools was always keeping a stack of interesting science reference books available for them to thumb through or to look up a quick question on their own (yes, this was pre-internet!), but I always struggled to find good quality books that did not overwhelm us with evolutionary content and would often lament to my husband, that it would sure be nice to have a Christian alternative to the informative Usborne or DK resource books. I am so excited to share that Master Books and My Father's World have heard the cries of many homeschool families and have joined together to provide quality science reference books that offer beautiful photographs and illustrations without the inundation of evolutionary teaching.

    Beginning with Genesis 1:1, this book introduces the scientific method, real science, fields of science and the reasons to study science and then dives into seven sections covering a wide range of scientific subjects. Section 1: Matters and Chemicals covers atoms, elements, molecules, solids, liquids, gases, melting and boiling, crystals, water, chemical changes, acids and bases and composites. Section 2: Energy, Motion and Machines presents energy, converting energy, the energy of motion, forces and motion, measuring force and motion, gravity, heat and cold, helpful machines, simple machines, machine power, friction and energy and matter. Section 3: Electricity and Magnetism contains electrical energy, static electricity, flowing electricity, electrical circuits, using electricity, magnetism, and magnetism to electricity, electricity to movement, movement to electricity plus more. Section 4: Light and Sound introduces sound waves, using sound, light, reflected and refracted light, using light, laser light and more. Section 5: Earth and Life presents planet earth, inside the earth, the rock cycle, volcanoes and earthquakes, atmosphere, weather and climate, mountains and valleys, rivers and lakes, coastlines, seas and oceans, life on earth and the earth in trouble. Section 6: Space and Time explores earth in space, exploring space, earth's orbit, magnetic earth, inner planets, solar wanderers, outer planets, the sun, stars and galaxies, deep space, and the universe.

    The last section provides over sixty projects covering topics in each of the previous six categories. Science projects contain a concise "you will need" list, clear step by step instructions, and colorful accompanying photographs. Each project also contains the reference page for further information and utilizes commonly found items. Glossary and index provide helpful reference material. hc. 247 pgs. ~ Deanne

       I am a fan of things that can be folded up and put away – space saved! This desktop easel is 18” wide and 12” tall and folds flat to about 1.5” thick. It doesn’t take a lot of space even when folded out – only about 8” deep by 18” wide at the base. Both sides of this easel are magnetic and dry-erase, so you have double the work space. Children can practice with magnetic letters, magnetic math manipulatives, and more. Use dry-erase markers to practice writing, math problems, spelling, etc. The set includes the desktop easel, one dry-erase marker, and two colorful magnets.

    Black cardboard squares (2.75" x 3.5") have rounded edges and textured ivory letters, one set of upper case and one set of lower case. The texture is like sandpaper, but seems a little better stuck to the cards. Children can trace the letters with a finger as they are learning to write them. Lay paper over the letter and make a rubbing. Match upper & lower case. Use these with vision impaired students. Some kids are more tactile than others and these are a good option for a child who needs a multi-sensory approach to learning phonics. 54 cards w/an idea guide ~ Sara

    With four young children in the house and wanting to encourage learning opportunities, we, of course, have a ton of magnetic letters covering every square inch of surface on our refrigerator. Okay, so maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but it's mostly true! The older two like to spell out their names or other words while the younger two just throw the magnets all over the kitchen floor. The older girls can never find the letters they need, and it always looks cluttered. This handy-dandy little tray could solve all our problems! It measures 13.5" x 8.5," is 1 1/3" deep and is divided into thirty 1-1/2" x 2" compartments with two slightly smaller compartments in addition. You can sort all your letters into their own compartments for easy storage and locating! Of course, you wouldn't have to limit yourself to storing alphabet tiles or letter sets - this clear plastic container would work for storing a myriad of small objects. And don't worry, there is a pushtight lid! ~ Megan
