Lots of little facts and excellent large color drawings illustrate the topics covered.

I spent a lot of time looking for the 13th hidden grasshopper (my mistake - I should have just given up!)

My four year old daughter loves this book. I use it as our homeschooling text for science and nature study, but it is not like a textbook at all. It is a compilation of seven separate titles in the Usborne First Nature series: Birds, Trees, Flowers, Butterflies and Moths, Wild Animals, Fishes, and Creepy Crawlies. Each chapter contains games like hunt the bumblebee in the Butterflies and Moths chapter, and watch the leaf bud open (on the upper right corner of each page) of the Trees chapter. My daughter is fascinated by the fabulous illustrations, such as the giant beetle in the Creepy Crawlies chapter, and the sharp teeth of the Dragon Fish in the Fishes chapter. The text is interspersed throughout the illustrations and is informative and entertaining. I am amazed at how much I learn each time I read part of this well-done book with my child. I highly recommend it!

This is a general overview of many nature subjects. Best for younger kids or to use as a jumping off point for further study. Excellent illustrations. Has many hidden pictures throughout which my kids loved.

We usually use this in kindergarten. All the kids really enjoyed it and spent many hours looking through it.

For a book filled with fairly "dry facts", the language and art really held my son's attention. I know he comprehended because he pretended he was various animals in the following week. It is also pleasant on the eye and not so simple the grown-up will rush through to get away from it.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mom of four on November 5, 2009
Format: Paperback
This colorful nature book is a compilation of seven 24 page books: birds, trees, flowers, butterflies/moths, wild animals, fish, and creepy crawlies. Each busy two page spread has a wealth of information in bits, typical of many Usborne books. Each picture and caption add to the overall topic with interesting facts, but there is not really any story being told. Although the book has a few fun activities such as searching for hidden pictures, it does not contain any nature experiments, outdoor activity suggestions, or the like.

My 6 year old enjoyed this book, but my 4 year old did not. I spent a lot of time looking for the 13th hidden grasshopper (my mistake - I should have just given up!) and my youngest lost patience. With better judgement on the reader's part, I suspect this book would easily appeal to children ages 4 to 8.

This is a WONDERFUL book to gently guide your young ones through an exploration of nature, life cycles, science/nature facts! Lots of little facts and excellent large color drawings illustrate the topics covered. An excellent Nature Study resource too.

As a homeschooling mother of a 7 and 4 year old, I am constantly on the lookout for good science books. I must say, I am very pleased with this book. Each page is informative, fun, and interesting. Yesterday, my older son asked if we could keep reading. He would sit through it all in one day, if I let him. I would highly recommend this book.
