    This curriculum guide for young children is crammed with a multitude of fun, educational activities to teach them about many different subjects while they learn their alphabet. The book is organized by the alphabet, with activities and reproducibles accompanying each letter. For example, the book begins with "A," which is introduced by a large capital "A," which children are invited to cover with "Aa's" they find in magazines or newspapers. The next page offers a couple of lines for them to practice printing upper and lowercase "A's" along with coloring pictures of related objects. Then it's on to the pages of activities. First there is a language arts page, which holds suggestions for such things as vocabulary words, fingerplays, recommended books, learning directions, and comparing. Then comes the math page, which introduces activities like sorting animal crackers, making patterns, and mathematical concepts like more and less. Next is social studies, which for "A" is themed around Agriculture and Farming. Children may create a farm scene, learn about farm animals, make butter and farm animal crackers, make a farm print, and learn about vegetables. On the science page, children will learn about air by finding ways to "see" it, like making simple sailboats and pinwheels, and experimenting with air. For two all-time favorite subjects of young children, art and music, there are also activities supplied. Children will enjoy making alphabet block prints, making personalized art display holders, painting aquariums

    and learning about mixing colors while creating abstract paintings, and singing "A" songs while getting acquainted with a couple of instruments. The last topic covered in each letter is gross motor/games. This page offers some games and activities to put children's energy to good use. They'll play the Alert and Auto Dodge games, learn aerobics, act like the animals, and practice being acrobats. On the backside of each activity page are reproducibles offering up reproducible activities such as coloring, matching and arranging. Some of these pages also hold the patterns needed to complete the activities suggested in the book. This same format continues for each letter of the alphabet. A total of over 600 activity suggestions, 130 reproducible games and patterns, and 50 alphabet identification pages are contained in this 320 page book. - Melissa

       This great resource can be used at the PK-K level to teach simple science concepts connected with Bible truth. 34 easy-to-use lessons include colored illustrations and pictures and supply list. “What to do” gives the steps for the activity or experiment, an explanation of what happened or was observed, and an application with Bible reference. Lessons are short and age-appropriate and can be used in conjunction with the Christian Liberty Preschool Activity Book or as a stand-alone science program. 28 lessons are themed with a letter of the alphabet. For example, J for Joyful Noise (Music). Children use jars of water in varying amounts to create music by tapping on them. The Bible Application is about music as worship, David playing his harp for King Saul, and the angels singing at Jesus’ birth. The 2-3 page lessons are random science concepts with fun hands-on activities. Note taking pages are included at the back. Spiral bound, 130 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

    The Beginner's Bible was the first Bible story book that my children read by themselves. It will always have a fond place in my heart for that reason alone. But the brightly illustrated, simply written book that tells the story of God's people and His Son, Jesus, is a favorite of many. You can take that well-loved story book one step further with this curriculum kit. Designed to provide 30 preschool lessons based on the stories from the Beginner's Bible, each video lesson covers three or so book lessons and utilizes the same artwork but with dramatized audio. You can either watch the video lessons or read the stories from the Bible (or both). Additional Resources in the Kit include PDF files for each lesson. A teacher's lesson sheet includes a master supply list and an optional supply list, step-by-step lesson plans, suggested activities, and applications for the lesson. Color sheets and a family page outline devotion activities for the week. Included in this kit: The Beginner's Bible hardcover storybook Bible, The Beginner's Bible Curriculum DVD-ROM (28 animated stories, 2 review lessons, 30 printable lessons in PDF format, and a Getting Started Guide). Although technically designed as a preschool curriculum, I could see this being used as a young family's first homeschool Bible curriculum; it even provides reading practice for emerging readers. ~ Janice

    In board-book edition for the youngest child, this is the beloved classic by Bill Martin Jr. The pages are super-thick and durable, and the illustrations by Eric Carle are vibrantly colorful, interesting, and original.

    A classic book from beloved author-illustrator Tasha Tudor originally printed in 1956 that earned the Caldecott Honor is now a board book for your youngest “readers” to enjoy. 1 is one duckling swimming in a dish. 2 is two sisters making a wish. 3 is three swallows up in the sky. 4 is four sheep nibbling rye.

    And it goes up to 20! On each 2-page spread, her realistic and nostalgic drawings vary from being in color or black & white: each with a delightful border. With a horizontal format, you are reading a full sentence across the 2 pages so it makes for good practice for an emerging reader. 7.25x5.5”, 42pp, hc. ~Sara

    Learn animal noises and more from this fun board book, detailed by the works of Eric Carle! All the barn animals want to play with the spider, but she’s so focused on building her web she doesn’t even notice them. One of my favorite parts about this book is the spider’s web: it’s coated with a special ink so it rises up from the page, just enough for little hands to be able to feel it. A fun little tactile flair to a simple story. 32 pages– Laura
