Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an arc of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I love, love ,love this book. It is packed full of so much information all in one place. it really could take the place of several books.

The recommendation to get to know plants by drawing them and labeling them is brilliant, both for adults and children, to study them with a magnifying glass is also brilliant, a super way to bring you up close and personal with nature .
The calendar is easy to underst

While I enjoyed this book, in my e-ARC the photos did not show up properly and some graphics did not either, so I can't comment on their quality and have to drop a star. Pity, as I love looking at nature, but they are just a small portion. I am sure the book will be very useful and a great source of interest and discussion, especially among Scouts and Guides.

Whether making blackberry jam or picking samphire or ramson, scent is a major part of how we interact with plants which are edible. The id

I really want to give this book 5 stars. As a homeschooling family that are foodies, Zero Wasters and love herbalism- there's so much to love about this book. However, as other reviewers have started the illustrations are lacking. I just don't feel they're effective enough to make foraging totally safe- especially for kids.

This would be an EXCELLENT book for use alongside a photographic field guide. It would also be great for a foraging course, nature group, scout troop or teacher looking for a

This book leads you through the woods to explore what is edible, with simple recipes included. For children and youth who are not into making crafts, foraging for food in nature provides a bit more daring alternative. For youth leaders who regularly take kids on hikes, this book provides a great resource identifying plants and exploring what you can do with them. The book is written for a primarily British audience, but much of it is applicable to the forests of North America.

This is an interesting book, but has significant let-downs. It is a little confused whether it is aimed at the child or adult market, as it kind of aims for both. Each section is usefully laid out, with the names in different languages, which is great for the multi-cultural society we live in. It has useful recipes to show off the fruits of your foraging labour.

It would be useful to have a map of the UK saying how common each entry is, depending on where you are. There are black line drawings,
