    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.

    Even if you live in an urban area, you can still learn all about animal tracks and make your own realistic casts with this kit from Young Scientist's Club. The kit includes plaster of Paris, a brush, sand, two bowls, an animal track game with 80 cards, a poster, stickers, two popsicle sticks, a measuring cup, watercolor paint and an instruction manual. Play the card game to match animals with their tracks (learning 40 animal tracks in the process!), and place matching animal and track stickers on the poster. Several groups of animal tracks are featured at the bottom of the poster – can you tell the "story" behind them? Then get ready to make your own set of animal track casts using the eight included molds and plaster! After you've perfected your casting technique, it's time to look for animal tracks in nature. When you find one, follow the instructions to capture the track using wet plaster and add your "wild find" to your new collection of animal tracks. The full-color instructions walk parent and child through the activities and directions, and provide a place to record answers and observations. This would be a fun kit to explore before taking a hiking, hunting or camping trip; you could even take the animal track matching game on the road with you for the whole family to enjoy! – Jess

    Here we have been selling this book for a year, and I never looked at it or realized just how cool it was until now! I love this book (I guess that is why the grade level says "through adult!); it is just about the coolest thing since buttered bread. Maybe even better than that if you're a horse lover like myself. The basics of horse care and riding are all covered, divided into topics such as Grooming, Feeding, Mucking, Safety, Ground Work, Tacking Up, and Riding. Almost every section has a two-page spread with a lot of information, how-to's, and tips. And for all those horse lovers out there that don't have a real horse to practice on, they can do almost everything with this book using the horse play section which guides the reader to do some activity with the stickers. There are four different scenes: in the barn, outside the barn, the tack room, and an outside pasture/arena. Four pages of stickers (which are actually not real stickers, they are more like colorforms - very re-usable, won't rip, go on and come off easily) are included in the middle, and believe me, they thought of everything! There are horses, riders facing both directions, saddles (English and Western), bridles, halters, lead ropes, currycombs, feed and water buckets, cowboy boots, feed, you name it! Because of their stick- and stack-ability, you can combine a bunch of stickers into one very fine creation. The possibilities truly are endless with this activity book! ~ Megan

    If your children are like mine, captivated by the littlest critters, eager to examine them from every angle, this handy gadget is the perfect tool for their explorations. The bug-friendly container measures approximately 5” long and 2 ½” high (without the attached lid). Snap the lid (with air holes!) closed, and children have a 360 degree view of their specimen through the clear plastic container. Taking it to the next level, the container also offers two comfortable 3x magnification eyepieces on the lid (shaped like a binocular) and two additional 2x magnification circles on the container. While designed for bugs, the container is also waterproof, so children can get up close and personal with a variety of aquatic specimens as well! Includes a soft rubber handle for easy portability. ~Deanne

    Do you ever get tired of reading interesting books, but having to weed out all the praise of the "evolutionary process" and how it is responsible for God's wonderful creations? Well, that won't be a worry here! Written by Christian authors, this book offers wonderful photographs and tons of information on some of the world's most magnificent animals. Not just full of facts, the book is quick to point out all of the unique and useful points of each animal and show how creation cannot conform to an evolutionary mindset. The introduction puts readers who believe in Creation at ease as the authors point out how God's hand is all over in creation, use Bible verses, and point out several areas in which evolution is full of flaws. Then, thirty different animals are discussed - each receiving a two-page spread for a beautiful photograph and a page of fascinating information and some quick facts. A glossary in the back gives definitions for some of the words, and an appendix shows off the animal tracks. This is one book you can read to your kids (or have them read on their own at a slightly older level), in conjunction with a science course or just for fun, without having to think about omitting information! ~ Megan

    Setting up camp on your dining table is as easy as unfolding the game board – it's the questions on the path to the camp that may challenge you. With simple game play that focuses more on outdoor education rather than on competition, your family will be able to jump right into this board game. Players start at the camp and must answer multiple choice questions as they wander through the wilderness path on the board. The question cards each contain four questions at different difficulty levels, with players selecting their level at the beginning of the game. Questions test a wide range of animal and nature knowledge for the entire family, and the upper level questions can definitely be a challenge. When we played, one time around the board made for a very quick game with two players, so you might want to go around a couple of times. For up to 8 players. - Zach

    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.

    Good things come in small packages, right? Well, this compact little bug jar has everything you need to identify and study your little friends at a minimal price!

    This entertaining picture book teaches young readers about the "forms and functions" of specific body parts in different animals. A two-page spread begins with a question, such as "What can you do with a nose like this?" or "What do you do with eyes like these?" with unidentified close-ups of the same body parts from five different animals. The following two-page spread answers the question, revealing full-length illustrations of the five animals accompanied by explanations of the body part's function. For example, when answering the question "What can you do with a nose like this?" the book explains how a platypus uses its nose to dig in the mud, a hyena finds its next meal with its nose, an elephant uses its nose to give itself a bath, a mole digs underground with its nose, and an alligator breathes through its nose while hiding in the water. This Caldecott Honor Book features appealing collage-type illustrations of the animals, and the last four pages contain additional details about each animal accompanied by thumbnail illustrations of the animals.

    Honestly, of all the books about horses that I've ever seen, this is the one that I would consider the horse Bible. This was the first horse book that I ever owned and through it I got one of the most wonderful horses in the world - but more about that later. The lengthy introduction covers horse breeds, types, temperaments, relatives, conformation, life cycle, color patterns, markings, gaits, sporting and working events, saddles, bridles, bits, origins and more. These pages are packed full of information, pictures, illustrations, etc. The meat of the book is devoted to discussing over 100 individual horse breeds, divided into three sections: ponies, light horses, and heavy horses. Most breeds receive a two-page spread and a plethora of information about that breed including environment, origin, temperament, breeding, characteristics, colors, and uses. Pages also include a map section with a highlighted area of the region the horse originated from, a key showing the types of horses which influenced the breed and the traits that they passed to it, and a silhouette illustration of the horse standing next to a 6' tall man for size comparison along with size ranges. Front and center, of course, is a photograph of the horse which takes up the majority of the page with distinctive points of conformation marked out to assist with breed identification. The end pages include a glossary of equine lingo that not all are familiar with and an index so you can flip back to your favorite breed easily until you have the page memorized. This book was also my art inspiration (horses are the only thing I draw at all well), and I often took this book with me as a guide when I was drawing - my goal was to draw all the breeds, but I never got that accomplished! Besides educating me, this book did something else for me - it was in this book I saw my first picture of a Friesian (pg. 116!!) and then and there I decided that I had to have one at some point in my life (not knowing at the time how expensive they are). I had never even touched one before last spring where, because of this book, I decided that I would do my required internship (for the horse program I was in) at a Friesian breeding facility. I had never seen one up close, but they were still on my mind, so I located a farm up in Minnesota. After two weeks there my dreams came true - my bosses gifted me with an almost two-year old Friesian cross (that's right, he's only half Friesian, but he is gorgeous!) which I named Tonto. It was truly one of the most amazing things that ever happened to me and, of course, I owe it to God and this amazing book! ~ Megan
