My Review:

From the Publisher:
This interactive workbook, packed with creative, year-round nature activities, is sure to please everyone ages 8 to 13. Clare Walker Leslie guides kids to observe and record what they see, hear, smell, and touch outdoors, whether they live in the country, the city, or somewhere in between. She offers dozens of fun things to do in every season: write a poem; make a sketch; tell a story; record daily sunrise and sunset times for a month; draw a local map and mark the locations of trees, rocks, animals, and other sights; keep a moon journal; learn about the constellations; or collect leaves and bring them home to sketch and identify. Rediscover the world outside with The Nature Connection!

What a great review. My 4th grader is a naturalist at heart. What a great home-school resource that would be. If I don't win, it's definitely going on my amazon wish list. You've sold me!

Looks like a WONDERFUL resource! Only sad thing is--- starting NEXT MONTH---it gets so cold here we can't go outside much. Today we tried the park and almost FROZE. Betcha you are having that problem. Thanks for such a fantastic give-a-way. :)
