A gorgeous guide to creating a nature journal that will inspire kids around the world to chronicle what they see in their own backyards.Kids love to be outside, but it’s easy to miss all the astounding wonders of nature, unless you look closely. Have you ever noticed that ladybugs have different numbers of spots? When you look at a leaf, what do you see: is it pointed or round, long or short, soft or hard? In this stunning idea book, acclaimed author and illustrator Sandra Morris shares her love for the flora and fauna of her native New Zealand and encourages budding scientists to record their own discoveries in creative ways, no matter where they live. Back matter includes a glossary, an index, and a bibliography.
As much an exercise in artistic expression as naturalistic observation, Morris’ lovely guide encourages kids to explore and appreciate the world around them.—Booklist…this charming work is attractive and inspirational…—School Library Journal
