Have I told you how much I love Apologia's Exploring Creation books? I do! They are wonderful! And I'm not the only one in my house who loves them. My kiddos love them too!
My 5th-grade daughter and I recently had the chance to review Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology written by Jeannie Fulbright and Brooke Ryan, M.D. We have done most of the other books in this series, and we were so happy when this new one came out! We also got the notebooking journal and MP3 audio CD to go along with the book.
This book, part of the Young Explorer Series, is aimed at students in elementary grades. I personally think that the books are probably best understood by students who are at least at 2nd or 3rd grade level. I have a nephew who is only 5, though, and he loves these books! He doesn't understand everything in them, but it is surprising how much he does understand and remember. If I had little ones in the house, I would definitely encourage them to listen as I read (or as big brothers or sisters read) lessons from the book.
The only problem we had with this curriculum was that my daughter wanted to sit down and do the entire book and notebooking journal at once! She enjoys the books, but the notebooking journals are her absolute favorite! She has always loved making things, drawing, cutting and pasting, and anything "crafty," so the notebooking journal really made the book extra fun for her. I'm sure it helped her remember a lot more of what she learned too since she got to put the information into action.
