Wholesome, Fun, Christian-friendly Children's Science Books

{This is a guest post by Jennifer Guest explaining to us 
the children books she's written!}

The Science of Seasons set of books are wholesome, fun, Christian-friendly science books. They are evolution-free, feature kids who dress modestly, and the characters are innocent, but realistic. Readers don't have to worry about the all too pervasive societal pressure creeping into the stories. Instead, science and other concepts are presented in a way that is appropriate for Christian families.  

In The Science of the Seasons, readers join Abigail, Henry, Grace, and their lively Fox Terrier, Beowulf, as they learn about the seasons in this lavishly illustrated, story book! Kids will learn about the seasons in different parts of the world, solstices, equinoxes, and a myriad of other topics brought together in a way to draw in both strong and reluctant readers! There are fun comics to read, celebrations in other parts of the world to learn about, and even yummy recipes to commemorate each season.

After kids are done with the storybook, they can delve into an exciting companion resource. The Science of Seasons Learn-and-Play Activities book is stuffed with over 125 pages of engaging things to learn and do that expand on the topics in The Science of Seasons. Kids can bring to life the lessons they are learning with character cutouts and playsets, fill out the make your own comic templates, and create a globe of the earth for fun experiments and much more! Far more than a typical activity book, The Science of Seasons Learn-and-Play Activities contains a highly varied assortment of cross-curricular lessons and projects, which will engage children on many different levels.

The pair of books would make terrific summer reading or a great addition to any homeschool. I have even created and shared a free science curriculum on my website ( that goes along with them! You can purchase the books (and also look at page screenshots) from the Guest Hollow store:

The books are also available from Amazon:

Jennifer is asking that you please spread the word and share her books with friends and family. There are so few science books for children from a Christian perspective. If her first book is a success, she will have the opportunity to make more!
