"What I like about the book is the activities are sometimes science, sometimes art. They involve observation, collection of leaves and rocks, etc. There are year round activities too - things for winter, summer, etc. We recently did an experiment to see what floats and what doesn’t. We went for a long walk, collected pine cones, sticks, leaves, flowers, rocks, and brought them back to test what floats and what doesn’t, and then read the book’s explanation of why. If you have time to do this with your kids on the weekend, I think it’s fun, and I would recommend it." — Customer Review
"I am beyond impressed with this activity book. Not only does it have simple, realistic nature activities but they are packed full of art, history, and writing lessons. As a homeschooling mom, I appreciate being able to include more than one subject into an entertaining activity where my kids hardly realize they are learning. This engaging and well thought out book will be a treasure for our family." — Customer Review
"This is such a wonderful book. I'm using it with my kids as a reward. When they get their schoolwork done, time to go outside and enjoy a simple activity that gets them excited about nature. We love finding "nature" all around our neighborhood. None of the activities are overly complicated or require special skills or materials. It is very open-and-go." — Customer Review
