The Lovereading4Kids comment
It’s four years since the National Trust challenged young children to get off their sofas and do something more exciting outside, and this handy guide/scrapbook is just the thing to encourage exactly that this summer. Most of the fifty things can be accomplished close to home in gardens or parks, though they’re no less rewarding for that, and as each one is accomplished, children can record it in the book with a date and signature. There are tips and extra suggestions on every page and the inclusion of three characters created by illustrator Tom Percival make it all seem more friendly and fun. Sturdy enough to withstand being taken on expeditions, this is a very good buy as the summer holidays approach. ~ Andrea Reece
The Editor at Nosy Crow says: “This handy little book has everything you could want to see you through the holidays, a sunny weekend, or even a rainy day in the house. And with plenty of pages to personalise and memories to make, it’s a book you’re sure to treasure for years to come.”

An activity notebook published in conjunction with the National Trust's hugely successful media campaign - there have been over 11,000 interactions on Twitter with the hashtag #50things. Durable and attractive combination of a scrapbook, activity book and field guide. Bright, graphic design, interactive elements and bite-sized text will appeal to boys and girls across a wide age-range.
Illustrated characters from 'Skulduggery Pleasant' talent Tom Percival are engaging and comical narrators.
Full of handy tips, nature facts and activity checklists, it's the perfect nature journal - with lots of space for notes, photos, leaves, doodles and more. And when it's just too wet to go outside, you can always turn to the rainy day activities.
