Great Introduction To Food and Nutrition for Kids! Jan 5, 2007
This is the second Janice Van Cleave book I have purchased for our homeschool and I LOVE it! Our family utilizes the Sonlight homeschooling curriculum but our child keeps begging for "more science" so I purchased a copy of "Food and Nutrition for Every Kid." This book is divided into twenty five chapters which cover the subject of nutrition from "Why Water is Essential to Life to How to Make Food Last." At the beginning of the book Janice has written an introduction to share with you how to utilize this book. Each chapter contains "What You Need to Know, Exercises, Activity (which is a science experiment) and Solutions to Exercises." This book provides you with a complete hands on science curriculum which is fun for both parent and child!
Good Resource Tool Mar 19, 2004
We have been using this book with Sonlight Curriculum this year. My children range in age from 6 to 12 years old. The book at times is too difficult for the 6 year old and too easy for the 12 year old, but in general it has been very useful. The chapters are short and difficult concepts are clearly explained. My children are alwys excited to get to the activity section of each chapter, but are disappointed about half the time. The 'activities' usually always work, but they are not always very fun or interesting.
