Summary

This portable sized book is packaged in a sturdy treasure box that kids can fill with their finds--from shiny pebbles to acorns to bird feathers and berries. Incuded in the kit are a colorful mesh bag for gathering samples, and a magnifying box so kids aged 5 on up can study their natural treasures up close. This unique nature guide introduces grade schoolers to the flora, fauna, insects, and rocks they are most likely to see on a walk in the woods--pretty much anywhere in North America. Since the guide focuses on only the most popular wildlife, kids will feel instantly rewarded by spotting chipmunks and chicadees, sugar maples, and monarch butterflies for example. Detailed photos will be accompanied by the kinds of tidbits that encourage kids to observe, touch, and connect with nature in a meaningful way. A chart of animal droppings; tree IDs based on things kids will find on the ground (such as acorns and pine cones); a feature on how they can eat their way through the woods; and tree-climbing tips are just a few examples of the hands-on fun and learning to be found in this book. The treasure box (which will hold the book, mesh bag, and magnifying box) is 8 x 10 x 2 1/2" deep.
