Format: Hardcover
Like its predecessor (_Fun with Nature_), this hardback volume is really five "Take-Along Guides" bound together: _Wildflowers, Blooms, and Blossoms_; _Berries, Nuts, and Seeds_; _Birds, Nests, and Eggs_; Seashells, Crabs and Sea Stars_; and _Rocks, Fossils, and Arrowheads_. You often see those individual paperbacks on sale at nature center gift shops. Each page features a single plant, animal, or object, and matches simple facts with realistic artwork. These are the kids of natural items children will be most likely to find in North America. Relevant basic activities are scattered among the entries. My favorite section here is from _Birds, Nest, and Eggs_, because each species takes up a double-page spread, with the bird on the left-hand side and its identifiable nest and eggs on the facing page on the right. The illustrations are beautiful. Recommended for naturalists, educators, and parents -- anyone who works with young children to help them understand the natural environment around them.

this book is actually five seperate nature books put together in one volumne. I would recommend it as a book for a child just getting into nature-birdwatching, rocks,trees and seeds, etc. It gives you basic info on several common "natural" things found in the US.

The book has it's good and bad points. While it covers lots of different areas-what it does cover is VERY basic-kind of like a starting point in several natural fields. The drawings are OK-but to be honest they are not clear enough for proper id of many things-for example, several of the seed id's-even I as an adult couldn't tell one from the other. I think either better art or photos would have been more appropriate in this type of book.

The age range suggested is 7 to 10. My 8 year old son did skim through it, but nothing really seemed to grab him. He's pretty "into" all things nature, and has many field guides-so-a child just starting out might appreciate it more.

The craft aspect I give 0 stars-as the projects are few, and VERY simplistic and barely explained-very poor- do not buy if you are looking for nature crafts:(

Overall, I'd suggest it for a young 6-8 aspiring naturalist-if you buy it used-I wouldn't suggest paying full price as it's honestly pretty run of the mill.

3 stars.

We purchased this book, along with its companion "Fun with Nature" at the Cabela's in Boise, Idaho.

My daughter always has one of these books nearby - she's sitting on the couch reading one right now.

A good deal of information is presented in a neat, friendly way. We used this book to identify a luna moth and a douglas squirrel within days of arriving in Washington. Although not as thorough as a field guide, the format makes it very accessible (and therefore more likely to be read) to children.

I highly recommend both books and look forward to purchasing more in the series.

I love these nature guides. Lots of pictures and lots of info. My kids love them because they contain a lot of commonly found items or animals. Now for someone who is looking for tons of different kinds of birds or tons of different kinds of bugs, this probably wouldn't work. But for someone who has kids who just want to walk around outside and just see what you can find - this book contains a lot of common stuff and I sure you will find some things outside that is listed in this book. My kids and I have really enjoyed them. We have both of these large books in this series. I recommend having both if you can get them.
