With dozens of simple prompts and exercises, best-selling author, naturalist, and artist Clare Walker Leslie invites you to step outside for just a few minutes a day, reignite your sense of wonder about the natural world, and discover the peace and grounding that come from connecting with nature. Using stunning photography as well as the author’s own original illustrations, The Curious Nature Guide will inspire you to use all of your senses to notice the colors, sounds, smells, and textures of the trees, plants, animals, birds, insects, clouds, and other features that can be seen right outside your home, no matter where you live. Sketch or write about one exceptional nature image each day; learn to identify cloud types and the weather they bring; or create a record of what you see each day as you walk your dog. Easy, enjoyable, and enlightening, these simple exercises will transform your view of the world and your place within it.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is a wonderful resource to help the reader open up their senses to the world around them. I feel this would be good as a homeschool resource or for those that need to have their love of nature renew, but in a new way. It could be used in the backyard, a park, or anywhere. I was given this book by NetGalley and Storey Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
