    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

    What lives longer a toucan or a warthog? Like the Timeline games by the same company, your job is to place your cards correctly in relation to the cards already on the table. Each player is dealt four cards, with a beautiful illustration of an animal on the front, and the same illustration on the back along with three important details: the animal's size, weight, and lifespan.

    In Dinosaurs, players are challenged to place cards by length or weight, so this deck is compatible with Animals if you are playing with one of those characteristics. Please note that this deck includes evolutionary content.

    Players choose which of the three characteristics to play by, flip one card over in the playing area so the information is visible, and then take turns trying to place their cards on the right places around the ones on the table. Once you think you have your card placed correctly, turn it over to check if you were right. Correctly placed cards stay information side up, wrongly placed cards are discarded and players draw a new card. As you can tell, the more cards on the table, the harder it is to place new cards! The first player to run out of cards wins. Quick to learn and easy to play, you also can't help but learn some new facts! This is a great game to play with people of all ages with no big advantages to older players. We pulled this one out last time Grandma and Grandpa were here, and out of all three generations, our 7-yr old won! 2-8 people can play, rounds take about 15 minutes, and the 110 cards are packaged in a nice little tin. If you enjoy this one, try Cardline: Globetrotter for geography! Steph

    Love animals? Know a lot about them? Put that knowledge to the test in a battle of wits with your friends and family. The goal is to work your way around the game board rolling a die & answering questions and collecting a survival token for each correct answer. Each card has a beginner and an advanced question on it. Determine ahead of time which player will get which questions. So an 8 yr old (using beginner questions) can play against a 14 year old (using advanced questions.) There are 3 types of cards: "Know It" are multiple choice questions. "Name It" requires a player to identify an animal from a photo, and "Rank It" cards have you put animals in order given a certain trait (eg: Rank these birds from the largest to smallest egg – ostrich, duck, hummingbird.) 2-4 players ~ Sara

    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

    This fun-filled educational game teaches horse lovers of all ages how to recognize horses by breed, color, and marking. Three different adventures take players through a learning journey of 32 different breeds. The first is called Mustang Adventure, and players are Mustang ranch escapees trying to survive in the wild. Players compete to gather a large herd of mares and foals and keep them safe from danger. In the second adventure, Rancher's Roundup, players are on the other side of the fence as ranchers trying to recapture their horses by brand and be the first to herd them to Green Valley. The third adventure, Rancher's Revenge, is a strategy game as you round up horses by groupings including breed, color, and markings. Game contains rules for all 3 of these variations, 3 solitaire games, 55 horse cards in full color displaying the horse on the front (all have cool names like Bustin' Dust or Thunderbolt) and information about them on the back, 4 playing pieces, adventure cards, game board, die, and a booklet containing rules of play, horse information and a reading list. Whether players are ranchers or wild mustangs, they are sure to have lots of fun and learn a lot on the way! ~ Megan

    How much "horse sense" do you have? You don't have to know a lot about horses to play this game - but being able to recognize a horse's body language will help! Start out by select four stunning horse photographs and place them on one of four horse stall boards. Draw a Horse Description Card. Players will then vote on these four horses according to three different categories: Horse Story, Horse Word, and Horse Award. The Horse Story is a few sentences of narration about the horse. If players come across a word they don't know, they consult the included glossary. Players vote secretly and reveal their votes simultaneously. They score points when voti for the same horse as other players. After scoring points using the scoring tokens, players secretly choose which horse they will take home and keep as their own. Players will learn about horse breeds, temperament, and vocabulary. This Ravensburger game includes a horse glossary, 100 horse photograph cards, 60 description/story cards, 1 game board, 1 die, voting tiles, and 24 scoring tokens. 3-4 players. ~ Ruth

    How well do you know your birds? In this game, the fewer clues you need to figure out the type of bird, the more points you'll score. The game is composed of 300 cards (at three different levels), with each card showing a photograph of the bird on one side and five clues and the name of the bird on the other. One player acts as the reader and reads the first clue to the player on their left, who is the answerer. If the answerer can name the bird after the first clue, they receive 5 points, if they need two clues, they get 4 points, etc, down to 0 points if they can't identify it. Then they become the new reader and play passes around the table. Whoever has the most points after eight rounds wins. For 2+ players.

    No ordinary, boring deck of cards, this beautifully illustrated card set features 54 beautiful butterfly species. While opposite corners of each card feature the card number and suit, the middle of each card displays a full-color, lifelike portrait of a butterfly along with its common name. Each card in the deck (including jokers) features a different butterfly, so no two cards are alike. Deck is standard size, and cards are durable and coated. Design your own butterfly games for that insect unit, use as a take-off point in identifying and learning more about these species, or just use as a colorful substitute to your normal playing cards. - Jess

    "In the beginning God created…" not your typical opening sentence for an encyclopedic style reference book! Master Books and My Father's World have teamed up to provide homeschool families an alternative to the popular Usborne and DK encyclopedia books. This refreshing book provides fascinating details, beautiful illustrations and full color photographs, all from an evolution-free perspective! The introduction provides an overview of zoology, a synopsis of the flood, and God's design for animal life.

    Seven chapters examine the animal kingdom from single-celled organisms to mammals. Section One looks at single cell life forms, protists, moss animals, sponges, jelly fish, hydroids, sea anemones, coral and coral reefs. Section Two focuses on worms, snails, starfish, mollusks, and echinoderms. In Section Three, readers will explore the world of bugs, including beetles, weevils, butterflies, bees, wasps ants, flies, crickets, grasshoppers, and even fleas and lice! Other animals included are crabs, lobster, shrimp, crustaceans, spiders, scorpions, centipedes and millipedes. Section Four covers fish. Although fish are easy to identify, not all fish must live in the water. In this section, we learn the common characteristics of fish, and the exceptional characteristics of some, which allow them to break the rules. Amphibians and reptiles are featured in Section Five. Readers will "meet" newts, salamanders, frogs and toads as well as a few of my family's favorite animals: tortoises, turtles, terrapins, sea turtles, crocodiles and alligators, iguanas and chameleons, geckos, lizards, skinks, pythons, boas, and thread snakes, grass snakes, water snakes, garter snakes and a variety of venomous snakes. Birds are next. Did you know that penguins successfully navigate life in the sea by using their short stubby wings for swimming? This segment also introduces us to seabirds, shorebirds, herons, ducks, geese, birds of prey, game birds, pigeons, doves and parrots, cuckoos, owls, woodpeckers, crows, shrikes, sparrows, finches and weavers, warblers, thrushes, flycatchers, larks, swallows, treecreepers, plus many others. The seventh section examines mammals including whales, dolphins porpoises, egg-laying mammals, marsupials, bats, anteaters, sloths, armadillos, rabbits, aardvarks, hyraxes, mice, rats, squirrels, deer, camel, antelopes, sheep, horses, zebras, cats, dogs, bears, raccoons, pandas, mongooses, lemurs, monkeys and numerous others.

    This reference book would be a valuable asset to the Christian homeschool family bookshelf. These books will most definitely end up on my family's reference shelf and I am grateful we can offer this quality science reference book without the deluge of evolutionary teaching. ~ Deanne
