Help Your Children Love Books and Science

One of the best things about homeschooling is the ability to learn along with our children! Another is sharing books with our children. If you’d like to combine these two pursuits, I have the perfect book for you!

Shark Dentists and Other Stories is a fun science-related book that’s great for children from preschool through about 4th or 5th grade. It is written from a Christian perspective, and it presents scientific information along with Biblical principles and beautiful illustrations!

There are five “short stories” contained within the book. Each short story tells about how a particular insect or animal is used by God to complete a certain task. For example—one short story tells about how ants help spread the seeds of wild violets to help them grow.

In the back of the book, you’ll find a section called “Things to Think About.” This section encourages children and parents to think more deeply about what they’ve read in the stories. It asks questions that you can discuss with your children and research if you want to learn even more together! Included are Bible verses that support the principle learned in each story.

The last section of the book is for parents. It includes references used to write the book. These references include Wikipedia references, Biblical references, and other sources where information was found. It might be interesting—especially for those who have children who love science—to look up and explore even more information together!

Because each story is told by an insect or animal and because the illustrations are so beautiful, children and adults will find the stories engaging and informative. So even if you have a child who isn’t normally interested in science, you may find that this book sparks an interest!

Another thing I love about this book is that it not only proposes a Biblical principle, but it also supports that principle with evidence both from nature and from the Bible. Yet it doesn’t belittle those who believe, for example, in evolution. It simply explains, in simple terms that a child can understand, why each Biblical principle is true and why each one cannot have simply happened by chance.

I wish this book had been available when my children were younger! It’s a great way to introduce children to the Bible, to science from a Biblical perspective, to beautiful art work, and to the fact that science can be fun and may be something your child wants to explore more deeply with you.
