I teach in a Forest School and run two family hiking groups. I can assure you, these will be suggested. I cannot believe how amazing these workbooks were. They were PERFECT not only for little minds building skills but also for nature lovers embracing new facts. I cannot wait for these to be printed so I can purchase them. These will be big hits with nature-loving families

This is a great book for a supplement or even a summer refresher for kids. The pictures are super cute and the terminology is easy to understand. This would also make a great morning basket book for kids who are homeschooled.

The Nature Smarts Workbook is full of engaging activities that will keep children off of their devices and learn about the environment. There are many activities to do in the book, but also other projects to complete. It would be a great resource to take on a camping trip to give children the opportunity to identify habitats, animal tracks, and observe life cycles. Proper data collection and evaluation methodology are also emphasized throughout the book. Kids who like scouting and other outdoor activities will enjoy this book.

I absolutely love this book and will buy it! The illustrations are lovely, the information provided is interesting, relevant, and age appropriate. Most importantly the work is something my kids will WANT to do. A workbook that teaches without tears! From how to make your own fossils to measuring precipitation, there is a bit of everything and I have a feeling I will have a lot of fun doing it along with them. Love, love, LOVE this workbook!

Nature Smarts Workbook, Ages 7-9 by Massachusetts Audubon Society is a stunning educational workbook that is fun, interesting, and was truly a learning experience for my child.

I highly recommend this educational workbook. My 6 year old son has always been interested in biology, animals, archeology, and geology. But his passion…are of the feathered sort…birds!

We are members of the national Audubon Society and visit the Grange Center in Columbus, Ohio often. Any time we can weave together a learning experience with something he is passionate about…I am all for.

This workbook has it all: educational narratives, facts, and snippets…activities with paper/pencil and hands-on activities as well.

It was a wonderful few days flying through this gem. I had to hold him back from finishing it all at a faster pace.

I highly recommend this series and hope there will be more to come!!!

5/5 stars

This is a book that all teachers need for their classrooms! It clearly explains all of the science that the children need to know, in simple, understandable terms yet still uses and teaches the correct scientific vocabulary. All explanations are clear and concise. I like the selection of activities throughout the book and am pleased to see that the activities are not all strictly science based, with some cross-curricular tasks too to keep kids interested. The illustrations are bright and simple enough to hold childrens' attention, but still scientifically accurate. I will definitely be planning on purchasing this for my classroom.

What a fantastic introduction to nature and earth sciences for elementary students! Geology, meteorology, astronomy, botany, and more are all explored in accessible lessons that will definitely engage and educate! The pictures and examples are clear and attention-grabbing and cleverly distill complex topics into kid-friendly language.

The wealth of activities are varied and appealing. There are some sneaky math and language lessons, as well as lots of simple, hands-on activities like making fossils or model feathers. All modes of learning are catered to and I'm sure the included stickers will be a huge hit!

This would be an awesome gift for a budding scientist and would make a great enrichment activity for a school break or possibly a family trip. The activities could easily be adapted for classroom use as well.

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