Nature Adventures by Mick Manning, Brita Granstrom

A guide to child-led family activities centred on nature rambles in different habitats - park, seaside, woodland, moorland, river and lake etc - through the seasons. Spreads comprise large colourful identification illustrations complemented by activities and facts. Activities include identifying common European species of insects, plants, mammals and birds, looking for tracks, feathers, droppings, making plastercasts of tracks, and collecting and displaying seeds, leaves and fruit and nuts.


'Why do children so often lose their early love of nature? Nature Adventures is a valiant attempt to keep that interest alive' - BBC Wildlife

"...whether they live in the city or country...With sketches as well as literary quotations, this book will transform the walk to school." ...and weekends too." - Daily Telegraph
