Field Trips: Bug Hunting, Animal Tracking, Bird-Watching, Shore Walking

Field Trips: Bug Hunting, Animal Tracking, Bird-Watching, Shore Walking Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With Jim Arnosky as your guide, an ordinary hike becomes an eye-opening experience. He'll help you spot a hawk soaring far overhead and note the details of a dragonfly up close. Study the black-and-white drawings — based on his own field research — and you'll discover if those tracks in the brush were made by a deer or a fox.

In his celebrated style, this author, artist, and naturalist enthusiastically shares a wealth of tips. Jim Arnosky wants you to enjoy watching wildlife. He carefully explains how field marks, shapes, and location give clues for identifying certain plants and animals wherever you are. He gives hints for sharpening observational skills. And he encourages you to draw and record birds, insects, shells, animal tracks, and other finds from a busy day's watch.

Synopsis:

An ordinary hike becomes an eye-opening adventure with Jim Arnosky as your guide. In his celebrated style, this author, artist, and naturalist enthusiastically shares a wealth of tips for watching wildlife. He carefully explains how to sharpen observational skills and identify various plants and animals. Jim Arnosky encourages readers of all artistic levels to keep a wildlife journal; his own sketches and hand-written labels greatly add to the personal journal experience. While most field guides focus on a particular region or species, Field Trips provides a bird's eye view over four main categories: birds, animal tracks, insects and shoreline plants. It's a fun and unique way to teach children about wildlife that lurks not very far from their very own doorstep.

About the Author

Jim Arnosky has been honored for his overall contribution to literature for children by the Eva L. Gordon Award and the Washington Post/Children's Book Guild Award for nonfiction. Many of his over fifty-five books have been chosen as ALA Notable Books by the American Library Association, including Drawing from Nature,a Christopher Award-winner.

The acclaimed artist and naturalist was inspired at an early age by the work of the American naturalists John Burroughs and Ernest Thompson Seton. For many years he concentrated on showing readers close-up pictures of the natural wonders found around his home in northern Vermont, where he and his wife, Deanna, raised their daughters, Michele and Amber.

Now, with both daughters married, Jim and Deanna have taken to exploring for wildlife in different parts of the United States. Wild and Swampyreflects their fascination with Southern swamplands and the creatures that live there.
