    Birds, bugs, and bats – if it flies, it's explored in this fascinating introduction to zoology! The first portion of the book focuses on birds and their unique characteristics. Kids will learn bird anatomy, how they are able to fly, why they build nests, how they raise their young, and more. They'll also learn to identify the birds they see every day and do activities that explore the habits and preferences of different species of birds. Students will learn about bats, some of the most useful and wonderful flying creatures in the world. As they study the physical characteristics and lifestyle of the bat, they'll gain a new appreciation for these creatures. Finally, kids will get up close and personal to the insect world. They'll learn how to identify and classify the many different types of bugs they see, and they'll even get to design their own experiments with different insect species. Kids will get the opportunity to keep their own field journals as they are encouraged to be their own scientist as they observe and understand the world around them.

    This book is obviously an Usborne book; it's overloaded with interesting information and tons of color pictures. But it also has something else: internet links. A great deal of science is packed in the book, with even more available online at the many quality websites chosen by Usborne. More than 1,000 internet links and 180 QR links are included. Perform more than 120 experiments and activities, and see video clips, diagrams, pictures, and other helpful online highlights. Sites allow you to see video clips of animals, hear animal sounds, build your own roller coaster, dissect a virtual frog, relive the story of landing on the moon complete with sounds, images, and slideshows, and so much more. All of science is covered in this book: physics, chemistry, biology, information technology, earth sciences, astronomy, anatomy, zoology, and Earth conservation. A wonderful resource even for those without online access. This book is available in two sizes (with identical content). There is a small format version(pb). This large-format hardcover version measures 8 3/4" W x 11" H. 448 pgs. ~ Stephanie

    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

    When I taught science and Bible in a Christian school, people would often tell me that seemed an odd combination of classes to teach. I think science and Bible together makes complete sense, and this book of devotions for children makes the connection between the information in the Bible and science in the world around us. There are 100 two-page devotions, each including a Bible verse, devotion, a 'Be Amazed' section, and a prayer closing. Read them as a family devotion or as a quick supplement to your science curriculum. Packed with scripture, these devotions will tie the Biblical basis for the things we experience in science. Every page includes photos, illustrations, and animations as children learn about the earth and space, weather, animals, and much more. 207 pgs, hc. ~ Donna

    Most homeschools have reference books like a dictionary, thesaurus, globe and atlas, maybe even a set of encyclopedias. But where do you go to look up science information? This science resource contains 250 main themes, 2000 entries, and thousands of colorful illustrations. From Dorling Kindersley, a secular publisher, so it may include some evolutionary content. Softcover.

    A book that young children will pick up for the pictures, and older children will enjoy for both the photos and the text, this is an amazing and attractive guide to some of science's most fascinating topics! Nine chapters cover topics such as atoms, matter, materials, energy, motion, electricity, light, technology, and the human body. Although reading the topics may make you yawn, simply crack open this book to any topic, and you'll quickly see how cool science can really be! Each page includes awesome photos, many of which have been taken from electron microscopes, or at least at very high magnification, which shows how awesome some of these "hard-to-imagine" things are, like viruses, spider spinnerets, strands of nylon, cables, cells, and more! Also notable are the detailed diagrams, photos, and images of other, larger items. Each page features general information about the topic, followed by more specific information on subtopics in a smaller font. The section on the internet includes some general information on the internet, and how it is used today, followed by some short sections on internet connections being included on common household appliances, how faster Internet connections are designed, internet communications to outer space, and cyber criminals. Most pages also feature a link to a cool website (through Usborne's own site, so that they can be continually updated), which allows kids to access interactive websites that feature a related activity or additional information. Incorporating the newest technology with some of the neatest concepts in science, this volume is sure to grab - and hold - kids' attention, even ones that don't think they're interested in "science." 96 pgs, sturdy softcover. - Jess
