Christian Liberty Nature Readers

Though the Christian Liberty Nature Reader set is made to be read one each year, grades K through 5. We read 2 a year or more. Whatever pace suits us. It all depends on when we start them and the interest levels. 

My boy really enjoys the books in this series.They are fantastic as a summer read because after reading about the bugs and wasps the boys can go out and find them. 

We do them as a read aloud for the first few levels and then as a reader as his reading skills advance.

Fun and interesting these little science books are keepers for us.

Made for Kindergarten, any younger one would enjoy being read this.

This book goes along with learning the alphabet and gives information about an animal with each letter of the alphabet. My little ones always loved learning about animals in any way.

Paper Wasps, Spiders, Butterflies, Honey Bees, Beavers, Ants and Tumblebugs. WHat boy would not love reading about all these critters.

We did this as a read aloud and my son loved it each day. I actually found this one interesting myself.  Ilearned stuff about wasps and bees that I never new either.

This is one of my favorites in this series. It tells little stories about sea and water creatures. Many of which I'd never heard of! My son really enjoyed this and was able to give answers to the review questions included at the end of each section.

Narration is a popular method of retelling what you just learned. If you speak it, you will more likely remember it. You could I suppose make this a little written assignment.. but for this age. I like the oral reviews best.

Keep it fun! Keep it interesting! This book helps you do both.

I highly recommend all the books in this series. These readers focus on little stories about various animals. This book talks about flies, ants, earthworms, beetles, jellyfish, starfish and dragonflies.

Critters... and boys. Can't get any better than that!

My boy loves them. They are not flashy, simple line drawings are included but the writing is done in such a way that it keeps the interest of my son (and me!)

Christian Liberty Nature Reader 4

Christian Liberty Press / 2000

This little textbook includes three chapters on birds: perching birds, birds of prey and how to study birds.

The we go into insects and moths. Turtles and snakes are next with toads, bats and the beaver to end the book.

The end of each chapter includes both review questions and some simple "things to do".

An example of an activity is to see if you can sit in the evening and listen to an owl. If you find one perched somewhere don't frighten it but walk around the tree and see how it follows you with it's head.

The review questions can be used as either a written assignment or as discussion questions.

Christian Liberty Nature Reader 5

The fifth book in this series deviates from the animal theme and goes into the human body for the first half of the book. Covering topics like: how food is used, circulation, bones and muscles.

Then it goes into a section they have called animal forms and functions. The cover variety in animals, animal tools for defense and attack, body coverings (fur, feathers etc).

The final chapters delves back into the human and our hygien and diet.

This book also has review questions at the end of each chapter. These could be used for discussion or could be assigned as written work.
