This is not a book of activities, so much as a compilation of lesson plans. Furthermore, many of the lessons are very specific to the northeast and would not translate well to other areas of the country. That said, there are a couple of outstanding lessons and ideas in the book. I think if I just photocopy about 20 pages I'll be set (shhh. I didn't really say that.)

This book is very North Eastern USA centric. Many activities would have to be adapted in order to work for southern, or western habitats.

This is a fantastic resource for helping little kids learn about nature. It's pretty open ended but
It also has some specific activities.
