From the Author

Born out of thoughts about what can enhance a trip to the zoo came Junior-Photo-Naturalist. I feel learning always enriches an enperience. Just as a naturalist, botanist, scientist, and even hiker and backpacker take field guides on their adventures, so to can your child take this field guide with them to the zoo to help discover and photograph the animals.

The Junior Photo Naturalist "My Trip to the Zoo" is a whole new genre of interactive kid's product. Part nature book, and part scrapbook, it encourages kids to become involved in what they are looking at. The author uses the tried and true "questioning technique" to get kids to consider things such as how birds of prey beaks differ from those of other birds they see at the zoo. There are pages for children to insert their own zoo photos and little photographer's tips written at a kid's level. I hope we will soon see other books in this series. Buy your budding naturalist / nature photographer this book and a cheap camera and you may well have the next Ansel Adams on your hands in a few years.

As a former teacher (1st to 12th grades) I have had the opportunity to evaluate a variety of teaching methods, tools and techniques meant to educate and inspire children. I have always felt that children should use a hands on approach to learning and sometimes their feet too. Sometimes you've got to turn the computer or television off and let them enjoy the real world. This book uses a practical, do-it and learn-it approach. Kids can have fun learning about animals and picture taking, while enjoying a good old fashioned walk through the zoo. When they're done they have a precious keepsake of their own to hold onto.
