    Children are fascinated by animals and capitalizing on their interest and passion will help them to love learning (and who knows, maybe provide a career opportunity for them in the future!). Divided into two parts, this book takes children from understanding Zoology at its most basic definition through the foundational concepts of animal forms and functions, animal behavior and environment. Then, it forays into zoology (in real life) with a survey of career paths and experiences for zoologists. Intermingled within the text are full color illustrations and abundant hands-on activities. A sampling of activities includes playing a dolphin echolocation game, demonstrating a butterfly’s life cycle, communicating like a deep sea animal, molding “tiger teeth”, planning and drawing an animal’s exhibit and following recipes to create an edible animal cell and bat fruit salad. The over 20 activities usually use easy to find items. Includes bolded vocabulary words, a glossary, an index and resources to learn more. A perfect supplement to any science curriculum or unit study/summer study resource. 131 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    Once students have learned all about the creatures of the air and the basics of zoology, they can take a trip into the depths and discover all the strange and unique creatures of the sea, lakes, and rivers. They'll learn about the special features of swimming creatures, the different watery environments they live in, what their lifestyles are like, and the special circumstances they deal with. Then they take a closer look at specific groups of swimming creatures, including whales, seals, sea cows, sea turtles, sea snakes, sea frogs and toads, primeval reptiles (like plesiosaurs), fish, sharks, rays, crustaceans, cephalopods, echinoderms, cnidarians, sponges, leeches, and more. As they study these creatures, they'll create replicas of them to add to an ongoing "Ocean Box," and conduct neat experiments like discovering the insulating power of fat, investigating how electrical current travels through salt water vs. fresh water, and determining how much of a role temperature plays in tadpole development. They'll also add to their notebooks by drawing the animals in them, comparing and contrasting animals, and much more. Whether the ocean is a familiar place to your children or not, they'll be equally fascinated by learning about the unique creatures beneath the water.

    A favorite topic at our house, with at least two resident horse-lovers, and one difficult Arabian (Megan's pride and joy). Beginning in the 1700's with the Godolphin Arabian, this course studies breeds and their histories, using Marguerite Henry books and the classics Black Stallion and Black Beauty (among others). Well-written lesson plans involve the student in a chronological study of horses and breeds, including horse anatomy, identification, sketching horses, charting blood lines, and Bible memory verses regarding the horse. This would be a one-year study if you complete two lessons per week. Resources below include some excellent literature and reference books.

    Although most Dorling-Kindersley books are known for their gorgeous photography and eye-catching layouts, this encyclopedia is downright amazing. It is packed to the gills with close-up photos of mammals, insects, reptiles and amphibians, with plenty of fascinating details on every one. The first part of the book presents general animal topics, including classification, senses, communication, camouflage, birth and growth, habitats, ecology and much more. The second part of the book, which is the largest portion, presents over 2,000 animal species, organized alphabetically by common name. I love this aspect, as it makes it very easy for children to look up the animals they are familiar with, whether they are dogs or penguins. A variety of species for that general name are presented within, so children can see the diversity that exists within each animal group. Most topics and animals are given a two-page spread which features a mix of general text, captioned full-color photos and illustrations, and often a striking, full-page photo of the animal as well. Fact boxes scattered throughout offer a succinct list of information on animal family, habitat, distribution, food, and approximate size for each group of animals. Although enjoyable purely for browsing, an index and glossary are also included. This "feast for the eyes" could easily capture the attention of your resident animal-lover for hours! 376 pgs, pb. – Jess

    Raising frogs from tadpoles sounds like a fun and educational experience, but if you don't have the time or desire to collect your own and make them a home, consider this kit. The kit was changed for 2015 and now includes a packet with tadpole food, nutri-sand and a postcard to request your tadpole and its new larger habitat. When you receive the packet from us, use the postcard to order the tadpole and its habitat from the supplier (no additional postage is necessary; please note that tadpoles may not be able to be shipped at certain times of the year, due to low temperatures. Cannot be shipped to Hawaii, Alaska, or Canada). The tadpoles are somewhat transparent so you can see into their bodies and even watch their heart beat. In 6-8 weeks the tadpole undergoes metamorphosis into an adult frog. The habitat and supplies provide the right balance of algae and other microorganisms to keep the frog healthy. Food is also included with a serving spoon to nourish all the way through metamorphosis. A Fun & Fact handbook gives detailed instructions, shares interesting facts about your new pet, and answers common questions. Once the frog has developed, you can send in for "stage two food" and a larger habitat if you wish. Frogs have an average life span of five years. ~ Rachel S.

    So, why add another animal encyclopedia to this section when there are already two here from other well-known publishers? Well, this one is just different, and different in some very appealing ways! First of all, it is hardcover, which makes it a little more durable (yet more expensive) than the DK encyclopedia. But the primary reason for the difference is in its organization, which makes it more navigable next to a zoology or biology course. Although a similar number of animals are covered here as in the DK volume (about 2,000), they are more extensively organized, as you can see if you check out our table of contents images online. The breakdown mirrors common biological classifications, including simple animals, cnidarians, flatworms/roundworms, segmented works, mollusks, arachnids, crustaceans, centipedes/millipedes, insects, echinoderms, chordates, cartilaginous fish, bony fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and finally, mammals. Within each chapter, two-page spreads examine one sub-group in depth, such as "catfish and electric eels" in the bony fish chapter. If you flip to that spread, you'll find a short introduction to the sub-group, followed by a handful of examples of specific species within that group presented in short blocks of text with some basic information, the scientific name, distribution and size. In comparison, the DK volume is organized alphabetically by general animal group, such as "bats." If you flip to the page(s) on bats, you'll also meet a variety of different bat species, complete with lovely full-color photos similar in quality to what you will find here. Both are excellent resources, and endlessly appealing to browsing as well as use as a reference or curriculum supplement. Your choice may just depend on how you want to use the guide, and which type of organization you prefer. On a side note, while this is from a secular viewpoint, evolution is not covered in any amount of depth here; the emphasis is really on the animals! 320 pgs, hc. Jess

    If you're looking for a fun yet fact-filled supplement about or introduction to dinosaurs from a Christian point of view, check out this book by Earl and Bonita Snellenberger. Besides captivating, biblically/scientific based facts and information, this activity book includes toys to make, games to play, puzzles, puppets, dot-to-dots, tangram puzzles, and mazes. The black and white illustrations throughout the book are perfect for coloring. The book includes tons of information about what makes a dinosaur, how fossils are made and restored, the history of dinosaurs and fossil hunting, faults in the evolution theory, Creation (in six, 24-hour days), the different types of dinosaurs and features their bodies had, Noah's flood, and more. The information is plentiful and, with the dozens of accompanying hands-on activities, students will have lots of fun as they learn the basics about dinosaur life and the different types of dinosaurs. As a bonus, a glossy, 2-page poster is included that pictures and identifies some of the most amazing dinosaurs. The book is not reproducible, so any patterns that must be cut out have a blank back and students can color, complete puzzles, and read directly from the book. 128 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
