This was my kids favorite science so far, it is very engaging for children, and kept my attention also! It is not watered down material, but is written to be easily understood.

This one is good coupled with biome and or geographical studies. this was a bit technical for the younger children--held interest, but was better suited to the older students. We made our own notebook pages and used appropriate coloring book pages--fun, informative study.

My daughter is really loving this entire series. These books are a great introduction to zoology. However, we didn't care for the notebook journal. She found it boring.

A little above my 1st grader, but definitely recommend for mid to upper elementary. My kids (3, 5 & 7) all love the experiments at the end of each chapter.

My daughter is dyslexic, but she wanted to do this science. It was alot of reading for me, but she loved it so much it was worth it. She liked some things about the optional notebook that you can get with it.

My children have loved the Young explorer series, but land animals has become a favorite this year. They have learned so much about land animals, and are inspired after the lessons to go learn about more species through books at the library.

We used this book along with Answers in Genesis Properties of Ecosystems. It was great for learning about animals. The text is written sometimes in first person, so that can put you off a bit, but otherwise, great for the Elementary levels!

The text is well-organized and easy and flexible to implement. We were able to work at our own pace, skimming some sections and spending more time on sections that my children were more interested in. There was plenty of information to make this a "meaty" course for the upper grades and yet, it was accessible enough that my younger children stayed interested most of the time. It does have a good variety of pictures, but I also got books from the library for each chapter so each child could look at the animals while I was reading.
We also used the Junior Notebooks alongside the text, which have some nice activities to supplement the book. There are even some mini booklets in the back of the notebook that are printed in full color. My children were frustrated that some of the spaces to write in were too small (and used the primary dashed lines) and they were overwhelmed when I tried to make them complete every activity, including the copywork. It works better when you pick and choose a few activities.

Just like the other Apologia books, I learned new things right along with my daughter. I love how these books present the material. It is easy to adapt them to any age/grade/ability.

I suggest doing the notebooks with this and the other Apologia books. They include puzzles, copywork and other things to help cement learning.

We did this curriculum last year with our homeschool group. My daughter loved it! I enjoyed it as well. The experiments were well thought out and made the reading even that much more interesting. Good solid Biblical creation is the foundation for this science. Although it was hard for her, due to being dyslexic, my daughter really enjoyed it. We are going to do another of Jeanie Fulbright's science books next year!
