A real discovery book, excellent in all aspects of creating a love of nature, finding out and just getting outside with a purpose.
This book won the Bologna Regazzi award, which aims to arouse curiosity about fauna, flora and to get to know the outside world.
Every page turned has an intriguing illustration or fascinating information in the text. From how to build a swing and reach the clouds, with facts about making a swing in a tree to the different types and styles of beaks on birds! It is literally packed with information for children ages, 8-12 and for adults who have maybe forgotten that stuff or never knew!
Who does this footprint belong to?
What is this worm up to?
What is the name of this tree?
Even if we live in the city, nature is still all around us: clouds and stars, trees and flowers, rocks and beaches, birds, reptiles or mammals.
What are we waiting for?
I will definitely be using this book through the summer and can't wait for a child or two to share our time in the Outside. A Guide to Discovering Nature.
Very much recommended!!
