This little workbook is jam-packed with learning adventures! Fun, easy-to-follow labs can be done with little prep. Arts and crafts blend in nicely with math and rhyming activities to round out the activity series. Younger learners may need more guidance than those in the older age range (as there is lots of reading). This workbook provides good support for what kids learn in school in the early years or as a bridge during the long summer vacation months.

This is a must have book! Very engaging for kids. A must to all families. It really helps kids develop curiosity and interest in learning more about nature.

A wonderful, fun, interactive science workbook for pre-K and early elementary!   Younger readers will need support from a reading partner to understand the text and activity directions, but the illustrations are bright and engaging and will help them connect with each lesson.    

There' are lots of interactive activities, from mazes and games to drawing spaces to journal prompts to hands-on projects like bird feeders and track maps.    The variety is enough to engage all kinds of learners and there are even some basic math exercises to encourage cross-subject learning.   

This would be a wonderful gift to spark curiosity about nature and would also make a great enrichment activity to do as a family.   Many of the lessons could also be shared in the classroom as a part of a science unit.   

Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review!

Nature Smarts Workbook for Ages 4-6 is fantastic! This nature themed workbook is filled with a digestible amount of facts for preschoolers & kindergarteners to learn about North American animals, habitats, adaptations, animal tracks, weather, water and plant life. There are many maze, matching and sticker activities that children could do on their own and several experiments to try outdoors with parental guidance. This would be ideal for homeschool or for children who really enjoy nature or need to get more involved with nature.

I would definitely recommend this one, and will be buying a copy when it is published for my kids. Thank you to Net Galley for the digital ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Nature Smarts Workbook is a great science activity book for preschoolers. Filled with facts and engaging games, this wonderful activity book is great for learning about different animal habitats, characteristics, adaptations... Hands-on activities are a great plus as well.

As a homeschool mom, this book is everything. We do a very nature based curriculum for preschool and this fit right in. If your kid loves nature, or you want to get them into it more, while also learning I highly recommend this!

There is a lot of good information in this workbook for kids. I like how there are crafts in there as well to do with kids that helps educate them about nature. Along with the crafts and nature information, there is also pages with math.

This is an excellent interactive book to teach children about their environment. 

The variety of activities includes mazes, sums, and stickers as well as outdoor observation exercises to help the learn about animals, plants and insects.

I was pleased the illustrations were colourful, clear, in proportion and identifiable unlike many children’s books today.

Unfortunately, I reviewed an eBook version so was not able to see the double page spreads side by side or assess the stickers.

Four year olds will need parental guidance with many of the exercises. I feel the age group should be maybe 5-8 year olds.

It should be noted focusses on north American wildlife and therefore I am unable to recommend it for Australian children.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing this book for an honest review.

A lot of fun ways to teach children about different aspects of nature: plants, animals, etc. some of the exercises are fun, but online sadly, many of the games don’t work.

Very cute activity book. Unfortunately American/Canadian themed animals but adaptable to Europe easily enough.

Brilliant read and very interactive. I redd this with my four year old and he said he would like more books like this to read. The quick information snippets of information are great ways for young minds to read and digest. The pictures and are well thought out and brightly coloured therefore keeps a younger audience engaged.

These books are absolutely incredible and I cannot wait to purchase them all and dive into them with my kids. These are activities that are not only fun for kids, but for the whole family! With some pages being great for independent time (aka mom needs to get the dishes cleaned up) my favorite activities are the ones that allow us to get out and explore nature. Wonderful job! Huge fan.

I can not wait to preorder this as a physical copy. I went through the digital copy with my five year old and we are plotting out which activities we can do this fall. I'm completely getting this book for summer of 2022 to do with her (she will be six then). This book has a great mix of sticker activities, matching, mazes, experiments, math, science, and fun facts/ information about so many different animals. I will say it again, I am so excited for this book. We are looking to complete the 100o hours outdoor challenge and this book will really help with it.  Great job on this book!
