Hike a trail, climb a tree! Smell the flowers, watch the birds! Explore the world! Nature is full of adventures, but sometimes it’s easy to forget things you felt or saw. What did those animal tracks look like? How did you feel when you gazed at the starry sky on a calm, clear night? My Nature Book is the perfect place for a child to keep track of all of his or her memories. It’s a place to draw and write about your experiences with nature, so you’ll remember the sound of the squirrel you heard chattering, the color of the bird that landed on your lunch sack, or the way the meadow grasses waved goodbye. My Nature Book is also full of projects and ideas, such as how to make water windows and luminarias, and even how to make yummy peanut butter cookies or banana bread or muffins to take along on hiking trips. There are also lined pages for writing, blank pages for drawing, and numerous activity pages.

This rich, fully illustrated compendium features: Nature-based skills and activities such as species identification, photography, journaling, and the judicious use of digital technology Ideas, games, and activities grounded in what's happening in nature each season Core concepts that promote environmental literacy, such as climate change and the mechanisms and wonder of evolution, explained using a child-friendly, engaging approach Lists of key species and happenings to observe throughout the year across most of North America Perfect for families, educators, and youth leaders , The Big Book of Nature Activities is packed with crafts, stories, information and inspiration to make outdoor learning fun. Jacob Rodenburg is the Executive Director of the Camp Kawartha summer camp and outdoor education centre.

Does moss grow only on the north side of a tree? Is the North Star really the brightest star? Will a mother bird abandon its baby if you put it back in its nest? Will toads really give you warts? The Truth about Nature answers all of these questions and more. A useful compendium for parents and children to read together, The Truth About Nature sets the record straight on nature myths once and for all. It breaks down 144 everyday nature myths, identifying how true the myth really is, with the book’s unique “myth scale” (level 1 being somewhat true to level 3 being a complete myth). Organized by season and covering facts that are so strange that they must simply be false (but they’re true!), this interactive guidebook also offers readers the chance to do their own science experiments to bust a few myths on their own.

Want to save cash, your child's imagination and possibly even the planet? This is the book you need. Packed with great photos of real families in the outdoors, Born to Be Wild contains easy-to-follow instructions for activities that require nothing more sophisticated than a small person's imagination and access to a little outdoor space. Nature lays on magical materials for free each season, from fallen leaves and twigs, moulted feathers, sand and shells, to mud, puddles and rain. Everything else you'll need for these activities is already hiding in your cupboards at home. No expensive art supplies of outward-bound kit required. All you need are the toolkit items at the front of the book - ordinary household essentials like scraps of paper, string, glue, recycled food containers and an empty jar or two. Along the way Hattie talks to families, organisations and communities who have rebuilt their relationships with nature with extreme or inspiring results, and she introduces scientists, psychologists and other experts who explain why, as modern families, we should revive our waning relationships with nature, whatever age or stage we're at.
