Saguaro Moonby Kristin Joy Pratt-Serafini
Here is another model nature journal from a naturalist who has been journaling habitats since she was a youngster. In the desert she sees Gila monsters, watches scorpions with a black light and harvests saguaro flowers with a Native American family that helps her see this unique, arid environment with appreciative eyes. The "collage-style" journal features clippings of articles about animals and plants, stories of the native Tonoho O'odham, her own youthful journal entries, and even her own desert poetry. "Saguaro Moon" is a wonderful way to learn about the desert and also be inspired to keep a nature journal.
Author Biography: As a teenager, Kristin's pen and paintbrush were passionate about nature. As a result, she had three best-selling books published while she was still a teen! Whether she knew it or not at the time, keeping a journal is an extremely effective educational technique. Now, as an environmental educator in her own right, Kristin Joy Pratt-Serafini is modeling how to keep a fun-filled nature journal and encouraging young people to discover a variety of habitats. Her first "model" nature journal was Salamander Rain: A Lake and Pond Journal. With this book Kristin explores a dryer, hotter habitat.
At 14, Kristin wrote and illustrated "A Walk in the Rainforest". At age 16 she followed with the popular "A Swim through the Sea". At 18 she did "A Fly in the Sky". In college, Kristin studied art. Now married with the last name of Pratt-Serafini, Kristin is a self-assured writer and artist, very environmentally aware, whose work is still young and fun.
