A Listmania! list by Wendi(One of the Great Lakes States)
The list author says: "AO is now linking up our booklists with recommended texts and Kindle downloads, so I hope you'll use the website for the primary texts. This list contains some of the AO books, but is mostly for supplemental resources our family has enjoyed."
"This is a wonderful book taking children through great scientific breakthroughs in history. Each chapter tells the story of the scientist and how he made his discovery, and then gives the children instructions on how to demonstrate the scientific principle. I wish Mr. Filson would reprint it."
"These are revised tales from Parables from Nature by Mrs. Gatty. I first found one by accident years before I'd heard of Miss Mason or Mrs. Gatty, and it was already a favorite when I finally came across a reference to the originals in Miss Mason's books. Those who struggle with the original Parables will probably love these. We do."
