    From Eratosthenes to Wernher von Braun, this volume looks at the exploration of our planet. The high-interest vignettes and tales of discovery include references to God and faith, where applicable. I hadn't realized before reading this book that rocket scientist Wernher von Braun was also a committed Christian. I also understand a little better now why, despite the fact that Eratosthenes virtually proved the Earth was a sphere, people clung to the belief that the Earth was flat.

    I think it takes a rare person to try to present basic chemistry at a level that an upper-elementary or middle-school student can understand, but ORGANIC chemistry? Normally, you only really scratch the surface of organic chemistry in high school, and if you go into a science-related field in college, then you're really hit with it. So, before I even cracked the cover, I was very impressed with Ellen McHenry's follow-up to her first chemistry program, The Elements. And parents, even if you never took organic chemistry, it's not as complicated as it sounds, and I'll bet you'll be drawn in as you learn along with the kids! It sounds advanced and frightening, but organic chemistry is really just an intersection of chemistry and biology, and learning the chemistry and formation of things like fats, proteins and carbohydrates can be fascinating. When you understand how molecules and substances act in your body, it can put a whole new aspect on the boring old chemistry you thought you knew!

    Eleven chapters cover a broad range of organic chemistry topics, including carbon; alkane hydrocarbons; "-enes" and "-ynes" (including alkenes, alkynes, benzene, etc.); functional groups and their combinations (carboxylic acids, adehydes, esters, and esters); plastics, rubber and silicones; carbohydrates; fats; proteins; carbon oxides and the carbon cycle. Sounds intimidating, I know, but her low-stress, straight-forward approach to these topics makes them understandable to just about anybody. The overall layout is similar to that of The Elements, with each chapter containing informational text interspersed with helpful diagrams and the ever-present, cute thumbprint guys, who have a comment for just about everything. At the end of each chapter you'll find a page of comprehension questions, which review the material covered in the chapter, and a list of research questions on topics which are related, but not covered in depth in the chapter. These are questions that the student will have to research on-line or in reference books. Thankfully for you, answers to both types of questions are found in the answer key. The student pages may be copied for your own use, which is great if you are planning on using the program with multiple children, and would also be a great tool for students making their own chemistry notebook. An appendix includes more hands-on activities for each chapter, and any reproducibles that are required for those activities. While some activities involve building molecules from different manipulatives, others are more "outside the box" and involve having a "burning contest" using different flammable objects, taking a virtual tour of a coal mine, making marbled paper (using alkanes!), dying eggs (to study the effects of acetic acid), sorting plastic using chemical analysis, and much more! I can't help thinking that college chemistry could have been so much more fun if we would have been able to do activities like this instead of drawing molecule after molecule! If you enjoyed The Elements, or have completed another basic chemistry program and would love to take your study of chemistry further, I definitely recommend continuing with this. If you would like to use this with children a bit older or younger than the recommended age range, the author has provided some advice on adjusting the material to fit those needs as well. On a final note, I want to add that even children that don't ordinarily enjoy chemistry, or found basic chemistry so-so, may be absolutely fascinated by organic chemistry. 164 pages, paperback. The CD which was formerly included with this course has been replaced by downloadable files on the publisher's website, which are referenced in select activities throughout the book. - Jess

    While new homeschool curriculums crop up fairly often for history, science and language arts, it's a rarity that a new homeschool health program is developed! Author Michele Spadafora has done an incredible job in pulling together this easy-to-use, thoroughly Christian P.E. and nutrition course that incorporates weekly lessons in "faith, fitness and fuel." It's an 18-week course that includes three segments on each of those "building blocks" per week, with tests included after every 3rd or 4th week and lots of helpful and inspiring video content as well. Scheduling works most naturally if you do health three days per week for one semester. Each week includes three topical reading segments (each about two pages in length), questions for the student, space to write goals for all three areas for the week, and space to journal about the week. "Faith" reading assignments focus on a biblical message, typically a goal that we could all work towards in our relationship with the Lord. These include: giving God control, replacing stress with peace, prayer, worship, loving others, serving others, making disciples, and more. Scripture references are sprinkled throughout the text, and several questions typically follow the reading. "Fitness" readings focus on the practical and include the benefits of exercising, frequency of exercising, warm-ups and cool-downs, proper form, weight loss basics, core strength, exercise gear, etc. "Fuel" readings focus on nutrition, like eating portions and proportions, understanding food labels, the importance of breakfast, avoiding sugar, the importance of whole grains, eating healthy snacks, avoiding diet mistakes, understanding eating disorders, and more. Readings on fitness and fuel typically do not have questions for the student, but are always followed by a space to write a goal for the week. The tests are fairly short and made up entirely of multiple-choice questions (an answer key for these is included at the end of the book).

    The video content is one of my favorite aspects of the program. It not only allows the author to "talk to" the student via video, but it also provides a way to demonstrate proper exercise form, workout ideas, or cooking technique. There are 32 short videos that complement the content in the book, and prompts to view them are found at the end of the readings. Students are also directed to several "Burst" videos throughout the program. These videos are about ten minutes in length and, just like the name suggests, these offer short energetic workouts to get the blood pumping. These are also found on the author's website. A DVD is also included with the book which features three full-body workouts, each about a ½-hour in length. The workout routines are fast-moving, yet simple enough to follow along with and feature upbeat Christian music from a variety of contemporary Christian artists. No fancy gear is required; while exercise bands make an appearance in several of the workout videos, and weights and exercise balls are discussed in the book, most fitness routines do not require any equipment. Whether you use the routines included or your own fitness program, the student is asked to work out at least three times a week, outside of specific assignments from the book.

    This easy-to-implement program would be perfect to do together as a family. The readings are fairly short and easy for students at different ability levels to understand. Technical details on nutrition and fitness are kept to a minimum, and the fitness routines and exercises will appeal equally to girls and boys. Compared to a full-year health course, you won't find nearly as much content on the human body or physiology here; the emphasis is truly on practical knowledge and motivation to stay fit. It would make sense to incorporate the nutritional information into the whole family's diet as well. The text is designed as a consumable, but if your students all write in their own journals or notebooks, you could use the text as a family. Christian families will especially appreciate the emphasis on building your faith while you build your physical endurance. 171 pgs, pb. – Jess

    What a wealth of information you have at your fingertips in these books! They're designed to include all the basic, important concepts vital to a full understanding of each subject, broken down into small, manageable chunks to help any student understand the subject better, and improve their grades along the way. Each chapter covers a broad biological concept, such as "Homo Sapiens: A Special Vertebrate," further subdivided into smaller body systems such as skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, circulatory and more. The chapters are fairly lengthy, and cover a wide range of topics, from the branches of biology, to cell chemistry, classification systems, basic chemical reactions, bacteria/viruses, the protists, fungi, green plants, invertebrates, chordates, humans, nutrition, diseases and the immune system, heredity/genetics, ecology, and evolution. Most evolutionary information is contained within one chapter, so you can easily skip over it - or use it as an opportunity to contrast current evolutionary thought against creationist theories!. Black and white illustrations complement the chapter information, providing charts, illustrations of organisms, life cycles, and more. Following each chapter is a series of study and review questions, including short answer, multiple choice, vocabulary, true/false, and long answer, as well as a short section on how this information pertains to real life skills in the field of a biologist, and a short chronology of the famous scientists whose work is featured in that chapter. At 370 pages, there is a lot of good, solid information here, and can be used as a backbone to a biology curriculum fleshed out with experiments and further reading, or as a handy reference to make sure you don't leave any gaps in your studies. After reviewing this book, I felt that I could have used it even in college to get some more background on some concepts that they breeze through rather quickly in college biology!

    This fascinating book explores many different facets of mathematics, and is an intriguing read for anyone - whether or not they enjoy the actual subject! It begins with a chapter which discusses the calendar - how it came about, problems and changes that were corrected and re-corrected, how the months were named and the days were divided amongst them, different people who influenced the calendar, and finally the system that we have today. Did you know that our calendar will have to be adjusted again, assuming we reach the year 5329? By then, our current calendar will be off an entire day. The text is so interesting it's hard not to just keep reading. Throughout the text, questions, puzzles, and problems are offered as a challenge for students. Some of the topics covered include measuring, practical mathematics, number names and patterns, endless numbers, math for scientists, and computing machines. Lots of history is given with each topic, so students learn not only about the concepts but how they were formed and developed over time to give us the functions we commonly use today. An excellent supplement to any math curriculum, reading a chapter from this book would provide an excellent break from the daily math lessons. 157 pgs. - Melissa
