This is the first book in the Preschool G-H-I Series. This series extends the A-B-C Series, providing six more books to help build a good scholastic foundation for the preschool child. A specific geographical region is used as a theme for each book, giving the added advantage of teaching geographical awareness by association, along with an awareness of God as the Creator.
Building a good foundation for our children's education is important. But still more important is building a solid foundation for their spiritual welfare. These books are designed to help in preparing the child for a good education from a Scriptural perspective. However, it is still the parents' responsibility to guide the child in the way of truth.
Going On Eagerly, with a polar theme, gives a basic introduction to the series. Exercises include using eight colors, working with four basic shapes, writing and counting with numbers 0 through 10, identifying sequence, drawing missing parts and simple pictures.
