Trails, Tails & Tidepools in Pails. Over 100 Fun and Easy Nature Activities for Families and Teachers To Share with Babies and Young Children.
Nursery Nature Walks, Santa Monica, CA.
This book offers ideas that can help families find the simplicity of enjoying nature. These outdoor activities address the young child, leave room for the child's own interpretation and improvisation, and allow adults to look at nature through the eyes of their children. Respect for nature is an underlying message throughout the book. The over 100 activities presented are very simple; most require few materials, and many may be accomplished in a backyard. The activities are organized around 50 themes in the following categories: (1) senses; (2) birds, insects, and other animals; (3) trees and plants; (4) beach and shore activities; (5) rocks, earth, mountains, and weather; and (6) discoveries. Where appropriate, activities list materials needed and recommend age groups (babies, toddlers, preschool children, or all). This book contains a subject index, an age-appropriate index, many illustrations, and cautions to parents. (SV)
