Exploring the World of Astronomy Review

mom-of Masterbooks

This months book for the Moms of Master Books was Exploring the World of Astronomy. As usual Master Books has delivered yet another awesome resource for your children. This could be used as a supplement to you homeschool, as well as just a great read for the members of your family.

Exploring the World of Astronomy Review

The book is laid out wonderfully. It is packed with great information, and at the end of each chapter there is a questions section to quiz your student on what they have learned. Of course, the book is written from a Christian perspective. So, there is no need to worry about hidden agendas or content while your little ones are reading. You can be sure that it is written from a creation outlook.

Exploring the World of Astronomy has 11 chapters that are jam packed with information. Not only did my children learn a lot just from flipping through, but as a mom, I learned a lot of great information as well. We will be using this in our homeschool throughout the year to dive a little deeper into the world of astronomy.

Be sure to visit the other Moms Of Master Books to see the other great reviews!

How to Have a Heart for Your Kids by Rachael Carman

Here is what Apologia’s website says about the book:

How well do you really know your kids? What has God shown you about who they are and who they will become? He has sent these children into your home at this specific time for His glorious purposes. Indeed, you have been invited on the adventure of a lifetime, a journey on which you will see walls fall, seas parted, and giants slain. You don’t need special skills or training for this journey—you need only to seek God and hold tight to His mighty hand! As with so many things, the first step to having a heart for your children is knowing your heavenly Father. As you seek daily to share His heart for your children, keep this inspirational book close at hand.

 

7 Tools For Cultivating Your Child’s Potential by Zan Tyler

Here is what Apologia’s website says about the book:

God created the family to be a powerful, life-shaping force in the lives of your children to be the place where their potential can be energetically and effectively nourished and cultivated. Sadly, in today’s culture, kids and parents alike often think of home as the spot to recharge their cell phones, change clothes between activities, and then crash at night. Journey with Zan Tyler beyond the status quo and learn to use the tools the Master Gardener has provided for tending and teaching all your children, whether they’re toddlers or teens. She will help you recognize the signs of potential in each child, signs that are easy to miss yet are ripe for cultivation. As you read, you will find exciting ways to enable your kids to establish a godly identity, discover their purpose, develop a biblical worldview, and build leadership and communication skills.
