Discussion Book Series and A Boy and His Dog by Kayla Jarmon

We received three electronic books, A Boy, and His Dog,  Dying is Part of This World, and Don’t Forget Me from Kayla Jarmon for our review.
A Boy and His Dog Cover-01

A Boy and His Dog
You have heard folks say ” A Boy and His Dog! ”  This book shows the close friendship and relationship of both.  My husband is a dog person really can relate to this and we often have talks about our Dogs and our past pets we have had and loved.

This book was so cute!  It shows what a sweet loving and fun relationship he has with his dog and how they do everything together, even bath together and the dog even sleeps on his bed.  Daniel enjoyed this book, in our home, we have dogs whose names are Baby and Konike. Baby is our Great Pryensse and Konike is our Black Lab/Retriever mix who is chocolate colored.  Daniel knows that having a dog means more than just feeding and watering, it comes with expense and responsibility.

Dying is Part of This World Cover-01

Dying Is Part of This World
Everyone has to deal with this subject and it seems that we all struggle with this topic. This thoughtfully written book shares about the fear of death. There are scripture references and discussion questions to provoke great conversation and prayer. With God’s knowledge and wisdom, you can overcome the fear of death and live a victorious life! Christ has conquered death! Amen

Dying is Part of This World was sorta a needed thing for us, so getting to read this was very helpful.  We lost my Dad a year ago May 25th, on my birthday. This was hard for me, but Daniel came to NY with me and we saw him the day before he passed. Since Daniel has had questions, this made it easier for me to share my belief on this without the worry of my emotions taking over.  We could just read this book and talk about death in general. We know that my Dad is in heaven with God and having this book reaffirm this helped us a lot. At the end of each chapter is discussion questions for us to use and talk about. Really great book if your trying to share this with your children and have lost someone close to you.

Don't Forget Me Cover-01

Don’t Forget Me 
Don’t Forget Me depicts a conversation between God and the Baby through pregnancy and birth. It will bring emotions and maybe even a tear to your eyes, as you are reminded that God is the author and giver of life. A perfect gift for expectant parents and siblings!

This book is meant to be used in the Christian Home. The Discussion Book Series encourages great discussions with discussion questions and Scripture references. This book is aimed at family discussion or even a woman’s bible study or teen girls class on marriage and pregnancy!

Since Daniel is my baby, I read this one myself.  This is the most Thoughtful and Encouraging book. Not just for children but for anyone expecting a baby.  It would be a great book to read to your children if you are expecting to share the biblical worldview of God being there from conception, birth and beyond.  I loved how it showed the love of God for the child, the love of the mother for her child and also the love of the father for the mother and for the Lord. The illustrations are so sweet and portray just how it is from the womb and it gives a very thoughtful and modest way of showing what happens in birth.  This book touched my heart even as a mom who has had many a miscarriage and it really should be in the church and the home. I love the verses in the back of the book that we can use to share God’s word with our children on conception, development, and birth.  I really love this book!

I hope you will consider these books for your children and your home. Also, consider getting this for your church when it is available in paperback or audio. I would so highly encourage Don’t Forget Me, for a teen group or a pre-marriage class.   All of these books are so well illustrated and very well written.

Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology

Anatomy & Physiology

The last several weeks we have been using Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology, by Apologia. All about the human body for elementary grades. I have to say that I have been wanting to use Apologia for sometime and never got the chance until now and I am so glad we were chosen for this review !

IMG_20180330_214828

We were sent  the following for our review:

Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology Text:  If you are looking for a Text that gives glory to God and teaches your children how each part of their body works inside them, this is an awesome book to study from. It is loaded with Lesson Plan ideas, Reading on Anatomy and Physiology, Projects & Experiments, Supply Lists and lots of colorful illustrations. Covering Topics from The History of Anatomy and Physiology, Basic Cells , RNA, DNA, The Skeletal System, The Muscular System, The Digestive & Renal Systems, Health & Nutrition, The Respiratory System, Life in the Blood,  The Cardiovascular System, The Nervous & Endocrine System, More on the Nervous System, Your Senses, The Integument System, The Lymphatic & Immune System and Growth & Development. All of this is very in depth but presented in a way for young children to understand.

Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology Junior Notebooking Journal: This notebooking journal is full of loads of activities for your younger children  and could be used for children from grades K thru 4th grade. It has coloring pages, copywork in manuscript and cursive, some simple crosswords and lots of hands on things to do, to reinforce what is learned from the text, like Mini Books to put together on many of the topics being taught.

Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology Notebooking JournalThis Notebooking Journal we felt was going to be a good use for Daniel (10 years old ) when he is a little older. This could easily be used for Grades 5 thru 6 th or even older children or an adult if your learning as a family ! It has Similar activities but seems to have more advanced things like Vocabulary Crossword Puzzles, Scripture Copywork in Cursive and Many fun projects that also go with the lessons learned in the Text.

Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology MP3 Audio CDThis easy to use CD is great, as you can play it while you follow along with the reading of the author’s word from the Text.  I found it to be a great resource.  I usually follow along myself and I will tell you there are some things in here that I never learned when in school. It is easy to follow along with and if I need to Daniel could follow along and play the sections himself at age 10 ! It was nice to as it tells you when to do a project or when to do the Try This in the Text.  So it is great for listening to at home or in the vehicle.

You can use the Lesson Plans given in the text for you can take things at your own pace !

I wanted to share with you a few pages from the text. It is beautifully illustrated and loaded with knowledge, which makes it wonderful for the children to see and understand what we are learning about !

Our Science Time looks something like this, Listen and Read the sections for the day, Talk about what we are learning and do a couple projects from the text and the notebooking journal.  Daniel and I spend this time together working through the Text and I am really enjoying all the things were learning.  It has been educational for me as well. Suffice it to say my Science learning consisted of basic chemistry in 8th grade and then some simple Biology in 9th grade.

As we studied about the History of Anatomy and Physiology of the Human Body Daniel colored pictures from different time periods, made a diagram of a cell, made the vocabulary flip chart and also the cell wheel

Daniels Project ” My Body ” The beautiful overlays allow him to see just where the systems are in his body and how the body comes together as a whole.  Doing this made it more personal for Daniel to learn of all the systems in the body. So far we have learned about the Skeletal System, the Muscular System, the Digestive and Renal Systems.

 

I really think this would be great for Christian Schools, Home schools or anyone wanting to give their children a wonderful knowledge of Science from a biblical view. It is engaging and could be used by many grade levels. If you are teaching multiple grades and need something for Science or Health, this could be just the Series for you. It is easy to understand, simple to explain to the children, yet it teaches some very in depth concepts.

CursiveLogic Review

Cursive Logic Student Workbook

Today we are pleased to bring you our review of the  CursiveLogic Quick-Start Pack and The Art of Cursive by CursiveLogic.  CursiveLogic is a fast and efficient way to learn cursive handwriting.  The lessons in the student workbook can be used by children teaching cursive letters in a very methodical way ( you will need a separate student workbook for each student who is going to be learning. ) while The Art of Cursive can be used for those who have completed the course or for adults to color, relax and destress while using what is learned from CursiveLogic.  The following video shares a bit about why this was developed and about how it works.

 Our Review

We were given the CursiveLogic Quick-Start Pack which contains the seminar for showing you how to use the program to teach your children or others, so that they can learn cursive fairly quickly.  After viewing the seminar, I decided that I would give daughter Faith a chance to try using this.  The student handbook shows the children in picture about posture, correct hand position and the proper ways to form the letters using 4 strokes similar in all of the letters of the lower case alphabet.  There are also lessons teaching uppercase alphabet. It is a very through study in cursive handwriting.  This could be easily adapted for younger children, but my own are ages 10, 14 and 15.  I allowed each of my children to try a page or two in the Cursive Logic Student Workbook. After this Faith worked through numerous lessons for our review. My 10 year old son was not into doing more, I guess that is his age and that he thinks cursive is too fancy for him to be doing.  My 14 year old daughter liked it but said she would let Faith be the one to use this, since she has many more years of schooling to do herself and Faith would be done with school sooner.  Being use to manuscript Faith found it very time consuming and difficult for her, that isn’t to say that it is hard to do in general, just hard for her. I hope through using this it will give her more motivation to keep writing and with practice she will see how beautiful cursive handwriting is.

This program could also be used to teach adults.

I decided to show some examples of the lesson and of her cursive work, so that you can get a better idea of how things progress in the workbook.

 

For months my children have commented on how nice my handwriting is and this came from many lessons as a child that took many more hours and so much more time then the way they are learning to write cursive.  Truth be told I did not realize how rusty I had become in my handwriting until I tried doing this program. I think it is good for all of us to learn from as a family. Given how so many schools are not teaching this art and discipline today, I have decided to teach my own so that one day they can sign their names nicely, write letters that are legible.  I also want them to learn History and be able to read documents that were years ago written with the finest cursive handwriting. After all if it was taught to men and women alike years ago, I feel it should be taught today.

We are looking forward to completing the course as we will be having some fun using The Art of Cursive, to learn how we can incorporate cursive into some beautiful artwork. We will be using it to make some artwork to hang up around our home.  It contains some lovely pictures to color and use the cursive handwriting  learned in the program and also very wise quotes and sayings to inspire us daily. We will be using some colorful gel pens we were given and I think this will make studying this as an Art form even more fun !

We really enjoyed this and I hope that you will consider using this with your children or even for yourself.

The Redcoats Are Coming ! by Marianne Hering & Nancy I. Sanders

The Redcoats Are Coming !

The first of a three-book story arc about the American Revolution, The Redcoats Are Coming follows Patrick and Beth as they assist the revolutionaries by waking up the sleeping citizens of 1775 Concord before the Redcoats come. In this adventure, the cousins meet Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and John Hancock. They help smuggle musket balls, sound the alarm that the Redcoats are coming, and deliver a secret message to Paul Revere. Along the way they learn that most of the revolutionaries leaned on God’s direction and even pastors helped in the cause.

Christian parents and teachers will appreciate the historical facts as well as the biblical worldview training their kids and students will absorb. The kids will appreciate the excitement and tension of an America at war with England, and in some ways, with itself.

My Review

We really enjoyed this book for its historical content ! This is the first in a sub-series revolving around the Revolutionary War. We read this book as part of a homeschooling unit study on the American Revolution. We had fun reading as a family each night till we were done and I really feel we learned a lot in a fun way ! The children’s  attention was held while one of us read and to me this is important. This book only took a few nights to read , so it was great for before bed or during breakfast. If your children like history and you are looking for something that is fun and full of adventure, give this book a try !

I received a copy of this book from Tyndale Blog Network for my honest review and have not received any other compensation for doing so.

National Geographic Kids Leveled Readers and Super Readers

I just love these books !  Each one is filled with beautiful photos and illustrations of each topic or story.  Being a bunny lover and a breeder in the past with ARBA, I have to say that Hop, Bunny was my favorite. They are fun and also very educational.  We homeschool and these fit right into our routine.  A few were easy for my son Daniel to read and the Level 3 were right where he is at in reading.

My grandchildren are also going to love these !  We all live a lifestyle of learning and the National Geographic Readers and Super Readers are a wonderful addition to our family.  I love that there is a word list in Vocabulary Tree for us to learn with ! They are very colorful and Entertaining.

I also really enjoyed the hardcover book Animal Ark ! It is full of Wild Animals and given the size it really held my Son’s Attention.  Giving an idea of the sights and sounds of each animal, so that it is a learning experience in a story !

We visited the website for the children at natgeokids.com/superreaders  where they can watch videos, play games, learn about the animals, share photos and earn badges !  What a fun and exciting interactive website for the children to enjoy !  You really must take your children on a visit there ! They can even earn prizes and a certificate !!!  They can also download posters and stickers and be able to chart their reading accomplishments !

This is an excellent way to celebrate March’s  National Reading Month and Read Across America Day right in your own home !
