This book is ok. Too much writing for my kiddos. I was hoping for more pages to draw and collect things. There are a lot lined pages. And for my kids the lines would be too close together for their writing skill. There wasn’t a "look inside" feature so I couldn’t tell before ordering. Check it out!
Review A carefully crafted, beautifully produced journal for actively engaging children in the natural world. Children only need a nudge to notice and question things adults have come to take for granted, and this little activity-filled book hits just the right buttons: curiosity, finely tuned observation, and hands-on experience. Put the book in their hands, and take them outside! (Paul Larson, Naturalist; proprietor of the bookstore A Sense of Place)
My Nature Book: A Journal and Activity Book for Kids, 2nd Edition Paperback – September 16, 2013 by Linda Kranz (Author) Review
I really like the content in this book, but the binding is falling apart. The binding was poor as soon as I took it out of the box, and the inside front cover was not cut correctly; at the printer, it was like the page was not trimmed (it exceeded the front cover). I taped some of it so my child could us it, but I foresee it loosing all of its pages over time. -Read Reviews-
I gave this journal to my two daughters (7 and 11) and my two nieces (7 and 10) for Easter in anticipation of a trip they are taking this summer. My children have already started to use the journal. There are many pages for drawing pictures and recording observations. I especially like that some of the pages have questions that help my girls to really think about what they are observing in nature so they can record the moment accurately. Today, we went pond dipping and my girls recorded, complete with drawings, their observations of all the creatures we found, including baby crayfish, dragonfly larvae, and snails. ..The journal is lightweight, so I expect they will accompany us on many of our outdoor adventures.
