The Big Book of Earth and Sky: A Wonderful Science Resource

A few years ago, I was excited to receive and review the Big Book of History from New Leaf Publishing. It was amazing and a wonderful educational tool. So, when I saw the Big Book of Earth and Sky, I just had to read and review that one also!

Big Book of Earth and Sky is published by Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing.   The book is coauthored by Bodie Hodge and Dr. Carolyn Reeves.

Like the Big Book of History, this book is unique. It can be used as a fold out book or as a chart. Each segment of the book focuses on a certain distance above or below sea level. Each segment has facts, pictures, and questions to help kids learn Earth science.

There are so many things about this book that I love.

* I love that it can be used so many ways. I can hang it up as a chart. I can fold it out as a book. I can use a certain segment that pertains to what we are studying. On the cover of the book there is mention of a teacher’s guide. I couldn’t find the teacher’s guide on the site. I did find the page that has study guides for many other Master Books books. I am hopeful that there will eventually be a guide for this book.

* Like the other Master Books, there is a distinctly Christian worldview in this book. I like that I can trust it as a resource to teach the kids.

* The book covers so many things. Even though it isn’t a textbook in the traditional sense, it definitely contains enough information to be used in place of one.

* The bright, colorful illustrations and real photos catch the attention of kids. Because the book is fun to read, kids will read it and learn the information.

* The way the book is divided into levels based on distance above or below sea level, it is organized in a logical way to facilitate study.
