Reviews - What do customers think about Exploring Creation with Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the 5th Day (Apologia Science Young Explorers)?
One subject all year? Aug 8, 2006
OK, I was sceptical! Everywhere I turned people were raving about the Jeannie Fulbright science books, but I just didn't get it. How could you spend an entire year studying just ONE thing?? What a waste of time! Wouldn't we get bored? Finally, I gave in to the peer preasure and ordered Zoology 1 thinking that if the books were THAT good, we could at least give them a try- for a month or two. Well, they ARE that good! and my whole outlook has changed. There is more than enough information for an entire year of study! There is just NO WAY we could get through it any faster. And what facinating information it is! I already learned a few things just by paging through it and my children (who have gotten a few glimpses of the beautiful pictures) are so excited to start. There are plenty of fun experiments (very important in this hands-on family) but they are not too complicted or time consuming (also very important) and the necessary supplies are inexpensive and easy to come by. And each book comes with a password so you can access the course website where there is EVEN MORE information! How cool is that? I am now a firm believer and can't wait to study ALL of these wonderful books.
Mrs. Fulbright Does It Again Jul 18, 2006
This is the third book in the Exploring Creation series for the elementary level that Mrs. Fulbright has written. They continue to get better & better! I found the Astronomy book soon after it came out (the first one written) & I have not even thought of switching from this curriculum! Written in the order of creation, Exploring Creation with Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day discusses all the creates that the Lord created first - birds, insects, bats, & flying reptiles.
As with the previous two books (Astronomy & Botany), Zoology 1 is written in a wonderful style that draws the reader (and listeners) in. My children love to sit & listen to me read them science (ages 9 & 5 - boys too!!). The experiments are easy to do (a huge must for me!) & the notebooking activities are wonderful in helping my children create not only wonderful notebooks to preserve their work, but keepsakes that they will enjoy looking at in later years.
Mrs. Fulbright has a wonderful grasp of the science behind it all, the words to express it so all understand, and the gift to connect all back to our wonderful Creator God.
Five stars is too low of a rating! Jul 18, 2006
We appreciate Mrs. Fulbright giving due credit to God, the Maker of heaven and earth.
Our boys four years and almost six absolutely love this book! They listen attentively to the text and move 100 miles an hour when it's time for an experiment.
Science is now our eldest son's favorite subject. We are now looking at the world through completely different lenses.
Thusfar, we have had a delightful time going on the scavenger hunt, examining insects, and performing the glider experiment.
As for me, I read ahead for fun at bedtime to myself.
Thank you for sharing your expertise and passion for God's creatures with us.
This book is awesome! Jul 17, 2006
I am 9 years old. This book is about birds, insects, flying reptiles and bats. I liked this alot more than the other things we did for science in the past. I am amazed at the things birds can do. I am exited about doing the next book.
Four year old says, "Great!" Jul 17, 2006
I thought the pictures in this book were great. I like to look at them on my own. I liked the peacock picture best. This book was interesting. I enjoyed making my nature notebook. I also enjoyed watching birds and learning to make homemade suet with my mom. We built a birdhouse and since then I have built lots of other things because I enjoy building now. That's not all....we got a peacock feather and I like looking at it! I also liked the part about putting bugs in a relaxer and sticking pins in them. It's sad to put pins in bugs, but it is also great because it is a good way to learn about bugs.
