A while back I asked for suggestions. Here's everything I got, alphabetized. There is a mix of secular and christian materials. Enjoy the list. If you want descriptions of the books, I compiled that too, just email me and I'll email it right back. This list is secular and Christian in content. The titles are precluded with a number, those numbers coordinate with Modules from Apologia Biology where the topics of the books seem to fit. I havenâ€™t read all the books, so this categorizing is based on Product reviews, etc. of content that I read via Amazon.com. A zero (0) indicates General Studies, i.e. a book that would simply fit anywhere in the study of Biology. 1 Amateur Naturalist, The By Gerald Durrell 0 Answers Books for Kids Volumes 1-4 by Ham 12 Ants, The By Holldobler & Wilson 16 Arnie The Darling Starling By Margarete Sigl Corbo 10 Art Of Seeing Things, The By Burrough 16Backyard Naturalist, The By Craig Tufts (National Wildlife Federation) 16Beak Of The Finch By Weiner 1 Best American Science And Nature Writing 2007, The Edited By Richard Preston 1, 10 Best Of Beston, The By Beston 0 Bible Has the Answer, The by Morris, Clark 0 Biblical Basis for Modern Science by Morris 12 Bumblebee Economics By Thoreau Or Heinrich? 9?

We are using High School Biology in Your Home this year for my 8th and 9th grader. (A research based program). We have a variety of reference books, but I am looking for some interesting books written on any aspect of Biology. My oldest is more of a literary/artistic type and the scientific language and dry writing is throwing her for a loop. I am looking for something that explains clearly, is well written and somewhat literary in style. Any recomendations? It need not cover all aspects of Biology as they are looking up their information all over the place. I'd just like some resources around that are interesting, accessible and thourough. Any ideas?:grouphug:
