“Oh, boy, have my nature lovers had a great time this week! I used this study with two of my children, ages 6 and 8. Both children love nature and animals but lack enthusiasm for the paper-y work of mini books and such. We did this study over three days . . . The three of us sat around our family computer, learning all manner of facts and figures on these creatures. The videos were wonderful! We especially loved the one where we watched the gecko turn from brown to green in real time. We were all amazed. One of my children commented on how wonderfully God created our world . . . I really enjoyed that all of the work and research was done for me. It almost felt too easy! . . . if you’re a planner by nature (like me), you might find yourself out of a job. But don’t worry, you’ll quickly be sidetracked by little ones whose eyes are lit with wonder at our Creator.”

“This is my first DNG, and I love it! It’s only a week long, so that really is awesome—it helps to break up the monotony of schooling and gives you something different to do instead of the “same old stuff” as my kids would say! It is very complete in content and very little preparation was needed. There is a list of books that will go perfectly with this unit study. We found all of the books that we wanted to read at our library, so there is no extra cost! . . . This is written for K–4, but I think that it is easy to use it for older kids as well! There are many links to coloring pages and some WONDERFUL family ideas at the end of the unit study . . . I hope that you have as much fun as we did!”
