Format: Paperback
This is a year-around treasure of helpful ideas for all parents. Nature's Playground is beautifully illustrated, with an attractive layout. Fiona Danks and Jo Schofield share their creative experiences on getting kids outside to play in every season -- not just the summer months.

Nature's Playground has a sturdy cover, with bookmark flaps, which I simply love. Whether you read the book through from start to finish, or pick and choose activities, this book is a wonderful resource. Older children might enjoy it so much they decide to read it on their own.

You will find tips for parents to help keep the kids from getting into trouble with nature, complete with supply lists, so make sure you have everything on-hand before beginning a new project.

It's like having your own personal nature guide along with you in your adventures. This book is perfect not only for homeschooling families, but single parents, who don't have time to plan activities themselves and for busy parents everywhere. This is one book that will get used all year long.

This book really gave me some good ideas for using with my 3yo. I really liked the style of writing, it's organization by seasons, & how-to photographs.

I'm only on the first chapter but this so far seems well written, simple and well organized. And I wholeheartedly agree that too many kids these days are being tidied away into their rooms with electronic tranquilizers. I also like how the activities and experiences in this book are beautiful and meaningful whereas some of the other books that I looked at were more based on somewhat cheesy games that are outdated and my kids would have no interest in. I will definitely be recommending this book.

This book has some incredible ideas. It even breaks some of the ideas down into seasons. My group of moms is getting together to do some of the nature projects in this book during the fall and winter (in Texas). It's worth every penny!
