The Curious Naturalist: A Handbook of Crafts, Games, Activities, and Ideas for Teaching Children about the Magical World of Nature. Second Edition.
Mitchell, John; And Others
This handbook offers crafts, games, activities, and ideas for teaching the novice naturalist. Equally usable by both children and adults, the handbook can be used as a simple field guide to help identify and understand the night sky, woodland plants and wildflowers, birds, and animals. The guide categorizes activities and information by the seasonal cycles during which they are most likely to occur. The purpose of the book is to give the individual a sense of the complexities and richness of the outdoors. It is intended to pique curiosity and urge further exploration of natural subjects while presenting information in an old-fashioned, home-grown knowledge style. The entire handbook is hand-lettered and illustrated with line drawings. (AIM)
