    Loved the idea behind & the content of this book - can't wait to build my toilet-roll binoculars and take the kids out on the hunt. Excellent!

    Such clever drawings and fun activities for kiddos! The layout is lovely - chapters dedicated to different types of animals and full of adventures for the little explorers to go on. I particularly liked the scavenger hunt options at the end of each chapter, but all of the activities provided are detailed and contain in depth instructions plus lists of the supplies needed. A great way to encourage kids to get outside and look at the wild world all around them.

    The contents are birds, mammals, herps, arthropods, and other invertebrates. You get tips to how to explore the wild life that is all around you, e.g the birds or the little snail on the ground. You also get to learn how to spy on animals, be creative with journals, and other stuff like camouflaging.

    I’ve always been quite fond of birds, and always when we go to places where birds are I have to take a look. They are such fascinating creatures. A few days ago we went to the city, me and my mom, and we found where the birds use to sleep. The birds were all sleeping peacefully; they were so many! It was like my inner child screamed out “Look!!” and it made me so happy.

    I really liked the message that you should tune out the world and look at the wildlife that is all around us, wether we live out on the country side or in the city, we share our space with wild animals. It’s amazing!

    The artwork was both fun and pretty, which made the text better to read. A lot of interesting stuff packed in this book. A book to look forward to read! I recommend it!

    Happy reading♥️

    Contains 50 to get kids engaged nature. Some are a little simplistic, but all would be fun, especially for younger children. Most can be done in your own backyard.

    My kids and I absolutely loved this book. We enjoyed the information, pictures, and how it encouraged us to get out more in nature. I loved how it motivated my kids to be more curious about animals around them and animals we don’t have near. It also sparked new conversation that lead us to research and learn more. As a homeschooling family and scouts family we really enjoyed this book. We would highly recommended for a multitude of ages as well. My kids are 10 and 7 and enjoyed it so much!
