|Fellow Home Educators: What a find! Mar 21, 2007|
|This is a terrific volume which makes it easy to introduce a "grown up" subject to children as young as eight (IMO).|
The narrative is packed with facts, character motivations/obstacles, and the subsequent lessons/results. All of this is presented in a gentle, non-frenetic pace unlike comparable titles...a great change! There is a lot for homeschoolers to develop from what is mentioned in these short, packed chapters. Which brings up a good point: for younger students, the best benefit will be from a read-aloud or group presentation. Because the text is so easy to read and interesting, my son devoured this book in a couple of hours and while he loved it, it's value is somewhat diminished if proper discussion doesn't take place and lead to further discovery. Older students who study independently will be intrigued enough to want to pursue further detail on their own.
Your children/students will LOVE working with this and so will you!
|A Wonderful Introduction to Medicine Jul 30, 2005|
|This is a really great introduction to the history of medicine for pre-teens, and also contains much useful and interesting information for the older child. This is the fifth science book for pre-teens and teens published by Master Books that I have purchased, and I have been very pleased with all of them.|
|Great for Homeschoolers Nov 5, 2002|
|An excellent overview of the history of medicine that integrates history, medicine and biography. Bravo! to John Hudson Tiner for not compromising. Suitable for young and old alike.|
