    I am in love with the Julia Rothman books but wasn’t sure how to go about incorporating them into our homeschool day. Enter Daily Skill Building Notebook. This journal is amazing. The amount of time that must have gone into building this notebook is unbelievable. The Farm book was the first one I purchased and I was so blown away I knew I had to get the Ocean and Food Anatomy journals as well. My 11 and 14 year olds have really enjoyed these journals! I cannot wait to use this one for our Health unit later this year. I highly recommend them!

    A great addition to our homeschool health class. Thank you for making such great content for us to use.

    I have a child who absolutely loves FOOD, so I thought the Food Notebook would be the perfect notebook to start with.

    The Food Anatomy book is engaging from the very beginning and my son (who loves to eat with his fingers) happily learnt and then demonstrated the correct way to eat with his fingers.

    In the Food Anatomy book your child (and you) will learn about the different food, culture and traditions of various countries. There are even some handy tips, techniques and recipes.

    The Food Anatomy notebook is a wonderful companion to the Food Anatomy book that reinforces learning and serves as a lovely record of work done that you and your child can be proud of.

      My husband learned how to cook when he was a kid (begrudgingly) and I reap the benefits of it to this day! It’s great to see kids being foodies at a young age!

    We love the beautiful Julia Rothman books! My children have been working through the notebooks for Nature, Farm, and Ocean Anatomy, but I wanted to work through Food Anatomy…just as mom-learning. I am very impressed at the quality of these notebooks and how much they help the student to retain! By writing notes and drawing the graphics into your notebook, it helps the brain cover the information in more ways, thus ensuring you’re more likely to remember it.

Jessica from The Waldock Way has a great blog post discussing how to use notebook companions alongside the Julia Rothman Collection to really get the most out of the beautifully illustrated books. We also wrote about how to use the Julia Rothman Series for science at our sister site,
