Editorial Reviews

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.

It's time to take our kid's minds, bodies and spirits back.  Our kids are turning electronics into their passion and we need to show them that being outdoors, running, exploring, creating and observing nature with all it's complexities, beauty and splendour is very, very important to their health and well-being.   This fabulous book is done in excellence as we have come to expect from National Geographic.  It is full of magnificent photos, sidebars, fun tips, information and facts that will boost your child's knowledge and make him aware of the world around him. It is designed in such a fun, kid-friendly way that your child will want to dive into the book and will have no alternative but to learn interesting facts and  then go forth and celebrate the great outdoors.   The book has very cool ideas for adventures in forests, fields, on beaches, on playgrounds, in city parks, and right in your own back yard.  I especially like that their are many suggestions and instructions to create crafts, engage in activities and above all discover the fascination of nature by taking the time to explore and engage in it.  I highly, highly recommend this book.
