Grade 1 Up-- In a straightforward, common-sense fashion and approach , Milord presents the world of nature in daily increments. A project or activity is offered for each day of the year, and each week is given a theme around which the projects focus. Some of the activities are simple events that could take place in the home (e.g. preparations for a nature display area, or reading a story or poem which ties in with the week's events). Other activities require visits to parks, beaches, or other outdoor areas. And still other activities can be successfully completed in one's backyard. The initial section includes information on how to use the book, how to respect the wildlife which is being observed, and preparations which should either be taken or made in order to properly observe and work with nature. A book filled with creative activities, but one that is best used with adult help because of the difficult reading level, insufficient number of illustrations, and very small print. --J. J.
