The Lovereading4Kids comment

Spring is approaching, the perfect time to get kids away from screens and outdoors, and this clever activity pack will do just that. Its attractive 24 page book is full of ideas on ways to have and record adventures, whether in the countryside, park or back garden: it tells you how to create a collection, and suggests ways to label it; it shows you how to find and record colours in nature – why not make a paint palette with squashed berries or petals; two pages are dedicated to sticks and what you can do with them! It’s truly inspiring stuff and there are extra goodies including fold up frames for your collection, a poster so that you can draw your favourite discoveries, and an expedition envelope to keep them safe. Perfect for weekend or holiday fun. ~ Andrea Reece
