Woodswalk: Peepers, Porcupines & Exploding Puff Balls! What You'll See, Hear & Smell When Exploring the Woods.by Henry Art
Synopses & Reviews
Kids love to be outdoors. Written by an expert naturalist, WoodsWalk offers guided tours for all four seasons and all regions of North America, highlighting special creatures, conditions, and events every step of the way. Aspiring young naturalists will learn how to "read" the woods for signs of the presence of animals, interpret sounds, and identify odors. They will also learn what NOT to touch or taste! With enough identification information on trees, terrain, plants, and wildlife for a hundred walks in the woods, this book is the complete first primer for the inquisitive young naturalist. Includes a cut-off, pocket-sized leaf-and-tree spy guide.
