Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"No matter where you live, this book will be a catalyst for kids to explore the great outdoors." —Booklist

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
The joys of outdoor exploration are celebrated in five chapters packed with possibilities for adventure and fun. The “Let’s Get Wet!” section features activities near oceans, rivers, and streams. In “Journey Through the Trees” the reader learns about different types of forests. Suggestions for activities close to home are found in the “Explore Your Backyard” segment. Wonders of the city and children’s playgrounds are found in “Nature Around Town.” National parks and outdoor sports are highlighted in “Let’s Go to the Park.” Each chapter features specific locations both in the USA and in other parts of the world. Chapters also include information about wildlife, birds and insects in each of these areas. Practical suggestions for making related objects, such as terrariums, barometers, and kites provide step-by-step directions. Insets with Fun Facts add interest. High quality photographs, typical of National Geographic publications, enhance the informative text. A valuable reference for nature-loving readers of all ages. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.; Ages 8 to 11.
