Any young boy or girl who enjoys being outdoors and science will love this book! The best element that this book contained that really made it unique was that it contained interactive elements. This book had pages set aside at each section's end that were intended as a scrapbook portion for the reader to write or draw in and it also had craft and activity ideas interspersed among the pages. This is one of the great elements of nonfiction literature is that it can provide a fun way for children t ...more

We have so many nature study guides and field guides and how-to books on exploring the outdoors, but we always go to this one again both for figuring out what things in our locale might be called and for references for drawings. I finally showed my littlest son how to use the book independently (he's only just become an independent reader) and he's had it outside with him all day, shouting questions and comments to me that are clearly inspired by this text.

This book was one of my favorites to flip through growing up. It was filled with science experiments, nature, as well as general information regarding different animals. This would be a great book to reference in the classroom, and it also has tons of great science experiment ideas that one could implement in the classroom. This would also be a great book for the children to look through to increase their interest in science-related activities.
I've skimmed through this book that we got our oldest for his 4th birthday, but he hasn't really looked at it yet. It looks great. Lots of info about various species of wildlife, where to find them, and little activities you can do like catch and keep a caterpillar, make a toad house, look for animal tracks, etc.. Really hoping the little guy digs this book, because I love it!

At first I was overwhelmed with huge amount of information, but I soon could envision a younger me pulling it off the bookshelf to browse through or use to identify a snake that came through our yard. A great reference for young naturalists!

Worth it to just buy the hardbacks instead of the individual guides as this is an excellent resource for little nature enthusiasts and will be frequently thrown into backpacks.

Great reference book for kids! I have the hardcover...might be better spiral bound and more durable.
