Publisher Comments:

A Unique Book on Outdoor Education for Young Children … Nature for the Very Young Nature For the Very Young At school or at home, this lively handbook of inventive and entertaining activities will delight, and educate, children from preschool age to second grade. Nature for the Very Young offers a unique combination of preschool readiness material and learning activities that use nature explorations as a springboard for learning and growing. The lessons are built around background information for the adults and proven learning activities for the children. The teaching aids are presented full scale to facilitate teacher use. Throughout Nature for the Very Young, the material is designed to focus on the basic concepts appropriate to a young child’s level of development and ability. These concepts include color recognition, sequencing, body awareness, reading readiness, and other important skills. You will also find invaluable guidance on leading a group of young children on field trips and on keeping the group focused on exploring nature. Whether you are a parent, teacher, day care instructor, camp counselor, or librarian, and no matter what region of the country you live in, Nature for the Very Young offers hours of learning fun, outdoors and indoors.
