Behold and See 1: On the Farm with Josh and Hanna
Nancy Nicholson with Mary Piecynski

As children begin to discover the astounding world that God created, they at the same time begin to uncover the mysteries of science. Rather than being at odds, these two discoveries issue from one and the same Source.

This Catholic science text presents to the child both Creation and Creator, in a context familiar to the child: the family. Activities that follow lessons reinforce and bring topics to life in little hands and minds. Through these lessons, children learn the scientific method of observing, comparing, grouping, and measuring change. 

Behold and See 1 users need no additional workbooks, teacher’s manuals, or answer keys; all lessons, activities, and explanations are found within the worktext.

188 pgs. Full color. Spiral binding for ease of use. 8½"x11"

Recommended core text in CHC Lesson Plans for First Grade.

“My daughter, Anna, was drawn to Behold and See 1 right from the start of the school year. She so enjoyed the very first lesson with "What are Seeds?" and had reservations that she would actually see a baby leaf inside from just overnight. However, much to her surprise, and her other siblings, there was. So from day one, God's simple wonder, along with the aid of this book, captivated her. This is why I feel so blessed with this and the other Behold and See series - it includes God's simple wonders which are too often overlooked. God has given us so much to see and learn from, we just have to open our eyes to see it. Behold and See 1 is at the right academic level for my 1st grader. It is easy for her to understand the concepts and the activities are something she can do on her own. Behold and See 1 has helped in allowing Anna to appreciate all of what God has given to us and she looks forward to science every day.”

“I have been very impressed with my son's science book. It is very colorful, easy to read and "gentle" - not overstimulating. My son really enjoys his science. I love that it is in story form where we learn about science through Josh and Hanna's experiences. My son can really relate to Josh as he forgot to feed the family dog, Buddy. The conversations are also humorous. We enjoyed reading about what carnivores, herbivores and omnivores eat which was woven in a conversation Josh and Hanna had with their father. Josh was pleased to be an omnivore!! I, as well as my son, really enjoyed reading about the different beaks of birds in "God's Clever Designs". My son has also enjoyed the projects, especially growing and measuring vegetables. After planting beans and radishes, we were inspired to plant other vegetables too. Although they are still growing, it is so much fun to watch them and see if they "survive" in our home. We pulled up carrots, radishes, and a green onion. We picked and ate some of our green beans and lettuce. The kids (both my 7 and 9 yr old) were so excited to have baked potatoes for dinner so that Dad could use "their" green onion on his potato. My son loves animals and bugs and I can just feel the excitement as we move into the insect section! This book also talks about God throughout and quotes from CCC. My son had to find things that God created on page 106. What a joy to have these God-filled books for our children to learn from!!!!”
