Reviews

"This appealing, textbook-style introduction to nature is broken down by season . . . The sections are subdivided by habitat (ponds, meadows, beaches, lakes), and there's also an emphasis on ways to explore plant and wildlife in urban areas. The author covers a wide variety of topics that highlight seasonal changes. . . . 'Nature Activities, ' such as 'Make Your Own Bug Spray' and 'Build a Boat That Stays Afloat' using only materials readers can find at their feet, make learning fun. 'Tips for Adult Caregivers' are also included. Illustrations vary from full-page scenes of different habitats . . . to smaller photographs and drawings of nature items--seed pods, leaves in fall colors, fungi, bee varieties. The lessons and activities here will motivate many readers to explore further." --School Library Journal
