You’ll get to do experiments to find out if earthworms can smell or see colors, if a roly poly is smart enough to complete a maze and which flavors ants prefer to eat. Learn everything there is to know about birds and how to invite them into your yard with your own handmade feeders, bird baths and bird houses. Become a botanist and even grow your own vegetables all by yourself! Take it to the next level and learn the importance of caring for nature in ways that keep the animals and earth safe. With this book, your parents will love that you’re learning, and you’ll love exploring outside, having adventures and getting up close and personal with the coolest bugs, animals and plants out there!
