Science made fun!
Review by Candice
My oldest daughter loved this series of science books! Her favorite part was the experiments she got to do. If you have a child who is more hands on then these are the books for you.
Perfect for my creative daughter!
Review by Charity
This course has been perfect for my 8 yo daughter. We are using My Story 2 along with it and we're able to coordinate many of the regions we are studying there with their biome unit in LTS3.

The notebooking and biome activities have been great for helping my daughter refine her artistic skills and cement what she is learning.

We are also loving the Biblical worldview
So refreshing after having used a literature based curriculum with secular books 2 years ago.
Fun science
Review by marilyn
My daughter is about to finish this book up, it's been a really great science book, most of it she can do independently. I like how they add in drawing , she has an adorable notebook with drawings from the year, and the biomes are a fun addition!
Great Hands On
Review by Amy
I am in love with all the Let's Talk Science series - We really enjoyed the Level 3. Last year I used it with my 3rd and 6th grader. It wasn't too much, but it was enough to get the info. in. I just wish I grew up with this when I was learning. But thankful I can use it with my children.
Love this for multiple grade levels
Review by Sarah
We use this for my 1st and 3rd graders and I love how it can be taught to multiple children. My kids love the is series. We have only done Master Books for Science and will continue to complete this series!
Daughter Does This on Her Own
Review by Emilie
My eldest daughter loves this science curriculum! I've tried others , but they weren't as easy or fun to use on a daily basis. This one gives you a list of supplies to buy (that's honestly the hardest part, lol, and that's really not hard at all). She retains so much information, and she says she likes this curriculum because it feels like she learns a lot (her words, not mine). She also enjoys the extra resources, like the Children's Atlas of God's World and the God's Big Book of Animals (make sure to buy these!).

I asked her what she wants to do for next year. She said she wants to do the next book in the series because she enjoys the experiments. BUT, she wants to add on Elementary Zoology as well. So, she wants to do two science classes.

She's not even the child I would have thought would have been my science nerd. Thank God for Master Books curriculum!

The best part is that she's learning a Biblical creationist worldview from a young age, and she's exploring the world with the resources and authors she needs to dig deep into the world around her. I'm so relieved that as she grows and meets with Evolutionary opposition, she's going to (God-helping) be in a much better position than I was to see through the false mythology of Darwinian Evolution.
Fun and interesting
Review by N
My kid loves these series, his learning style is kinesthetic and these books are a perfect fit for him.
Review by kari
