Frozen in Time by Michael Oard

Frozen in Time

A Great Resource when studying the time period of Creation through Christ.

From the Publisher:

Earth’s past is littered with the mysterious and unexplained: the pyramids, Easter Island, Stonehenge, dinosaurs, and the list goes on and on as science looks for clues to decipher these puzzles.

One such mystery surrounds the now-extinct creature called the woolly mammoth. Author and meteorologist Michael Oard has studied the mammoth and its equally mysterious time period, the Ice Age, for many years and has come to some fascinating conclusions to help lift the fog engulfing the facts. Some of the questions he addresses include:

What would cause the summer temperatures of the northern United States and European to plummet more than 50 degrees Fahrenheit?
Why did mammoths become extinct across the entire earth at the same time as many other large mammals?
Why are the mammoth carcasses found generally in standing positions?
How could large lakes exist in what are today very dry, desert-like places?
What was the source of the abnormal of moisture necessary for heavy snow?
What caused the cold summer temperatures and heavy snowfall to persist for hundreds of years?
In logical progression many other Ice Age topics are explained including super Ice Age floods, ice cores, man in the Ice Age, and the number of ice ages. This is one of the most difficult eras in geological history for a uniformitarian scientist (one who believes the earth evolved by slow processes over millions of years) to explain, simply because long ages of evolution cannot explain it. Provided here are plausible explanations of the seemingly unsolvable mysterious about the Ice Age and the woolly mammoths – Frozen in Time.

Dragons of the Deep by Carl Wieland

This is definitely one of my favorite Dinosaur books.  The pictures are fantastic!

Dragons of the Deep by Carl Wieland

Dragons of the Deep

This is a great resource for your study of the time-period Creation to Christ.

From the Publisher:

This one-of-a-kind book will thrill Christians and non-Christians alike, with its emphasis on ancient “sea monsters,” those fearsome and marvelous creatures that once roamed the oceans. From the predator Mosasaurus, called the ocean equivalent of T. Rex, to the gigantic turtle Archelon, the beasts who glided through the planet’s oceans no doubt were the inspiration for ancient sightings by mariners who described fantastic encounters on the open ocean.

Wieland’s riveting text and easy descriptions are complemented by the beautiful full-color illustrations by acclaimed artist Darrell Wiskur. Readers will be amazed that these complex, huge beasts actually lived. The author provides a thoroughly biblical analysis of them as well, insisting that these “dragons of the sea” came into existence during the creation week as outlined in Genesis.

Amazing colorful illustrations of sea monsters that actually lived in the oceans
Come face-to-face with giant sharks that could chomp a fishing boat in a single bite!
See how huge these colossal creatures really were when compared to familiar objects (like school buses!)
Learn how and where to find the fossils of these water-dwelling reptiles
Could some of these menacing monsters still inhabit the oceans today?

Exploring Creation Young Explorers Series by Jeannie Fulbright

Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics

 

My son has absolutely loved these Science Books.  Jeannie Fulbright does a great job with presenting Science in a fun and fascinating way.  My son loves to do the experiments and enjoys the notebooks too.  If your child doesn’t like to write, you can still use the notebook by having your child draw pictures or download pictures from the internet to present the ideas and information.  We have had a lot of fun with these.

The newest one out is Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics–a great topic to present to elementary students so that when they have physics and chemistry in later years, they will be familiar with some of the concepts.

Here are all of the main books.  Click on each one for more information.  To order, it is easiest to do it on this page below.  I also have the notebooks and junior notebooks listed below.

All of the main student/teacher textbooks are retailed at $39.00.  Our price is $33.15
