A Walk in the Woods: Into the Field Guide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A totally unique field guide to cool yet common critters, trees and flowers, this portable companion is guaranteed to get kids excited about exploring nature.

This portable, durable guide is a unique, hands-on introduction to cool, common critters, trees, flowers, and rocks found in the woods all over North America. The book only includes flora and fauna that children are most likely to encounter on a walk in the woods--from chipmunks to chicadees to maple trees (which they would learn to recognize from the shape of the leaves). Section introductions teach kids how to be good observers and explorers. And throughout the book are suggestions for engaging kids in their outdoor adventures--a guide to edible berries; charts of animal tracks, homes, and droppings; how-to projects such as pressing flowers, rubbing leaves, and even climbing trees!
