The Lovereading4Kids comment

This outstanding nature book demonstrates to children the myriad exciting possibilities for fun and adventure in the world outside their door. It is packed full of suggestions and information on how to explore the natural world, from how to build dens, to how to recognise star constellations and cloud shapes, to how to create a wonderful nature table. It covers woodland, moorland, river banks and the sea shore, but the activities described can be enjoyed in the local park too or just your back garden. There are accurate illustrations of the wild creatures mentioned, beautiful to look at and clearly labelled. The whole family will enjoy this book and it will make days out in the wild unforgettable. ~ Andrea Reece

“In this book we want to share some of the ways we have fun outdoors exploring nature through play and activities with our own four children. We’ll show you how to build dens and make secret signals; how to recognise star constellations and cloud shapes; how to encourage wildlife into your garden. We’ll even catch you a fish, cook it on a campfire and then bake you a cake in an empty orange skin… You’ll need to have grown-up help with some of the projects and you must always follow the safety guidelines, but if you follow the pages in this book, then together we can have some wild adventures!” - Brita Granström and Mick Manning

Synopsis

Wild Adventures by Brita Granstrom, Mick Manning

All kinds of exciting outdoor activities for children and the whole family, to encourage awareness of the natural world, to develop self-sufficiency skills - and to show how much fun it is to be out of doors, exploring nature.

With full-page pictures, vignettes, captions and a glossary, this is the book you need when you go out in the park or countryside.

The activities include: tracking skills; wildlife spotting; foraging for wild food and cooking outdoors; how to light a fire safely (with adult supervision); stargazing, including star maps; outdoor games; nature chase; how to mimic birdsong; how to make whistles and peashooters; how to make plaster-casts of animal tracks, nature collections and art from nature finds.

A companion title to Nature Adventures by the same authors.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
