"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

I highly recommend this book. Please enjoy my amateur video review. I try to give you a good idea of what's inside the book so you can make your own decision to buy or not.
I was sent a complimentary review copy from Storey Publishing, in exchange for an honest review!
Part One of this book is about How to Be a Naturalist. Ms. Walker explains how to look, what to write down, what you will need, and how to record observations. Part Two goes on to talk about the Sky, weather, and seasons. There are wonderful hand drawn illustrations and lots of great information in this section. The third part is a month by month guide which gives several activities for each month and relevant information for that time of year.
How will I use this book? I will get a copy for each of my children and myself. I will begin the school year going through part one and helping my children learn how to observe nature and record their observations. Storey Publishing also has a page where you can download printable copies of the pages which you would need duplicates of to make a nature journal on their website. After we've put their nature journals together, we'll start in October or November with the monthly activities and divide them amongst the weeks. We typically study science one-two days a week.Read more ›
