From the Back Cover
Step outside and look around! You'll notice many curious things you never knew were happening, no matter where you live. Full of fun ideas for what to look for and do every month of the year and with plenty of room to record what you find, The Nature Connection is your guide to exploring and discovering the wonders of the natural world all around you.
"In a time when most kids know more about the Amazon rain forest than their own backyards, Clare Walker Leslie's terrific new book will open a whole new world." -- Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods
"What better way to go through the year than looking at and wondering about nature with your kids! A great activity book for budding naturalists." -- Elizabeth Kolbert, author, Field Notes from a Catastrophe
"If I could choose one person to be my child's Rachel Carson-esque grandmother, then I'd choose Clare Walker Leslie. But if Clare wasn't available in person, then I'd want my grandchildren to have this book." -- David Sobel, Director, Teacher Certification, Antioch University

This book is broken down into three sections - How to Be a Naturalist (learning how to observe, listen, draw and journal), Learning the Sky (clouds, weather, sunrise/sunset, the moon and stars) and Exploring Nature ( a month by month guide to what's happening throughout the changing of the seasons). I will update this review in the future to share my experiences with my child.
This is an fantastic workbook if you are not an outdoorsy person and teaching it doesn't come naturally to you. I've used this a couple of times with my kids to do our nature study as part of our homeschool curriculum. We will be using it a lot more when we start our nature study group as a guide for ideas.
