Book of Astronomy Set Review

Logic, Greek Myths and Astronomy Memoria Press Review
One thing that Olivia loves is Science! She would rather do science over math any day of the week, but sometimes with the science lessons she gets bored with them. So why not mix things up a bit every few days and give her something that she shows interest in…astronomy! We were lucky enough to study the “Book of Astronomy Set” from Memoria Press. Olivia showed a great deal of interest in this book from the first day we received it and of course we had to try it out as soon as we started lessons up the next few days of receiving it.

Logic, Greek Myths and Astronomy Memoria Press Review
Olivia and I used to look at an app on my iPhone that would allow us to view the different constellations in the night sky but it didn’t explain much on how they got their names and what not. That was something that Olivia had always wanted to know, but trying to explain it in terms that she would understand was quite difficult. Thank goodness for this book set that not only came with a Student Guide, but also came with a Teacher Guide as well. Olivia has shown great interest in reading all about the stars, constellations and learning about when they will appear in the night sky such as during the summer or winter. This was also something new to me as well in which I honestly thought you could view all the constellations during the same seasons but I was completely wrong and I was OK in admitting I was.

The Student Guide has been very helpful for Olivia and she loves writing in the book. She likes to highlight the different sections in the book that will help her along with her learning and will help her in finding the answers to the questions that will be asked after we complete the lesson for the day. We have been known to do several lessons a day because she wants to continue to learn, and who can say no to a child who is wanting to learn more about science? This book set is great for grades 3-5 but can also be used for older children who want to learn more about the stars and astronomy. Olivia is technically supposed to be in the 6th grade but after last years fiasco with the public schools we decided to hold her back and redo 5th grade. This has been a blessing for Olivia because she is learning new things that not even the public or private schools around here will even teach her until she is well into her high school years. What a blessing for us and for her. I love how it also incorporates the Greek Mythology as well since we don’t talk a lot about it in our studies right now. So this is something that is wonderful for Olivia to get a little bit more information on which I haven’t yet covered with her yet. The Teacher Guide is really nice because I can read along with her and if she has any questions, I can answer them for her or if she gets confused. I really like this book set and I think that we will continue to do these lessons over the summer! Especially since we live in the country and don’t have a lot of lights around us we can enjoy the night sky…I might even be able to talk my hubby into getting a telescope for Olivia to help her with her astronomy lessons.

You can purchase this set online for only $31.50 which I think is a great deal! Be sure to go check out their social media pages such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Google+.
