    Children love to learn by reading or listening to stories. This is a fictional account of Peter Rabbit and the birds in Old Orchard. While it is an enjoyable tale, accurate accounts of the different birds (Jenny Wren, the Blackbird family, Carol the Meadowlark, and Spooky the Screech Owl, to name a few) are given pertaining to coloring, habitats, and habits. Black and white illustrations of many of the different birds are included throughout the story. Children will develop not only knowledge and a love of birds, but also a love for nature, including the importance of conservation and preservation of our precious resources. ~ Megan

    Fascinating facts about wildlife, coupled with drawing instruction for the beginning nature journalist, make this a perfect supplement to the Handbook of Nature Study or other nature instructional text. Each two- or four-page spread is devoted to a different animal and contains: a good amount of interesting information about the animal; one or more artist-rendered sketches; and step-by-step drawing instructions to sketch the animal yourself. The book was written and illustrated by a husband and wife team, Colleen and Michael Monroe. Colleen is the writer, and she has included interesting and sometimes surprising facts about each subject (did you know that newborn fawns are born with no scent to protect them from predators?). Michael is a nationally known, award-winning (and self-taught) wildlife artist who spends most of his year visiting schools around the country, encouraging children to never give up on their dreams. His love of nature and wildlife is reflected in the sketches which adorn each page. The drawing instruction is detailed, begins with simple shapes, includes written instruction for adding features through the illustrated progression of steps, and ends with a completed sketch that very closely resembles part of the artist's depiction. Two pages of drawing tips, including a mini-lesson on shading, precede the actual text. Subjects include: hummingbirds, birds, ducks, loons, turtles, herons, frogs, rabbits, white-tailed deer, white-tailed fawns, owls, bears, and wolves. The book ends with some simple things you can do to help wildlife like keeping dangerous litter contained, building birdhouses, and planting flowers. The book is about 36 pages in landscape format with a hard cover, making it a little more durable for outdoor use.

    This devotional book combines the natural love children have for animals with a study of character traits they exhibit (good and bad) for a delightful end product of short but engaging devotionals for young children. It is divided into sections by habitat – farm, zoo, forest, water, sky, etc. Each section contains 4-8 devotionals, each highlighting a particular animal. Each devotional covers a two-page spread. One page holds the text, and the other is a full-page illustration along with a few simple questions about the devotional to discuss with your kids after you've finished reading it. The book is fully illustrated by cute watercolor illustrations; even on pages of text there are colorful pictures around the margins and in the background. Some of the animals covered include beavers, kittens, monkeys, owls, earthworms, pigs, hippos, and hummingbirds. 96 pgs, pb. – Melissa

    In the middle of a quiet night, the music of the wind whispers to a little boy, and the owl calls him to a barn dance. Led by the fiddle-playing scarecrow, this charming, rhyming tale shows a silly all-night dance of all the barnyard animals coming together to do-si-do and swing their partner round ‘n round before sneaking back home in the early morning light. A Reading Rainbow book by Bill Martin Jr. 30 softcover pages. – Laura

    Ever wonder what owls eat? Dissect an owl pellet and find out! Owls regurgitate the indigestible remains of their meals, which make their diet easy to investigate. This pouch contains one sanitary owl pellet and a bone chart. Use a tweezers or other small tool (not included) to dissect the pellet and then identify the remains using the chart. However, if you're grossed out by the "real thing," you may want to check out the Skeleton Pellets, which are synthetic versions of owl pellets with one (non-surprise) animal skeleton inside. - Jess

    "Two-fer" studies are such a good idea. One course; two subjects covered. This particular combination – literature and art – makes so much sense. Richly illustrated with both full-color reproductions of masterpiece art plus step-by-step art lessons, this book will serve as a reference (for literary terms), an art appreciation course, and a drawing instruction manual. This should give you a little idea of its flexibility. The book is organized around different types/genres of literature: epic poetry, fable, science fiction, novel, and journal writing – to name just a few. Each genre is defined plus examples cited (good suggestions for reading lists). Masterpiece art that relates in some way to the genre is provided, and several art projects are described and facilitated. To give you an idea of how this all works, take the example of the segment on free form verse. Starting with some biographical information on Robert Frost (an American master of free form verse), Mrs. Jeffus focuses on a specific poem – The Road Not Taken – giving website links to where it can be found and read. She then has two artwork examples of paths – each very different from the other, and she describes the differences. Then citing another Frost poem – this one mentioning a crow – she has a short segment on painting birds and references Audubon providing an example of his work with the suggestion that the student reproduce the shapes found in the painting. She continues with the shape theme of the art lesson with examples of other bird paintings by Thorburn and a rabbit by Durer. With the rabbit picture, the student is led through the steps of creating a similar rabbit. Likewise with an owl painting. She ends the segment by noting how we can communicate certain characteristics by artistic additions. For instance, we communicate that an owl is "wise" by adding a graduation cap and glasses. This segment is longer than some but others follow a similar pattern.

    There are no lesson plans, per se. However, there are reading suggestions throughout plus lots of art projects and even discussion questions. The tone of the course is conversational and comfortable. This course could be completed independently, I think, by a high school student or to varying degrees of accomplishment and with varying amounts of assistance by younger students. A short, illustrated vocabulary and a simple end-of-course test (define genres and give examples) conclude the book. 92 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    This adorable board book tells the story of three baby owls who wake up in the middle of the night. When they realize their mother is gone, they wonder where she is and venture outside their nest to look for her. A great bedtime story to remind your children that while they may not see you if they wake up in the middle of the night, they are still safe and nothing will harm them. Written by Martin Waddell and illustrated by Patrick Benson, 20 pgs, hc. – Laura

      Kids are naturally curious about what is happening in their world. They may have already asked you how they caught a cold or why not getting the flu is so important. Sometimes we struggle to provide answers in an understandable way.

History of disease including cleanliness, vaccines, antibiotics and superbugs are also described before concluding with public health considerations including pandemics and new infectious diseases.
