Summer Nature Activities for Children by Irmgard Kutsch, Brigitte Walden


Summer Nature Activities for Children by Irmgard Kutsch, Brigitte Walden

This book is packed full of fun nature activities that will help children engage with the season and learn practical new skills. Activities for summer include growing and cooking fresh herbs, caring for butterflies, activities based around water, fire, earth and air, and working with grain and making bread. The activities in this book are based on practical experience from the Children's Nature and Garden Centre in Germany, and are fully tried and tested.


'This is an incredibly beautiful book which I can't recommend highly enough. The illustrations and photos are stunning and really provide the inspiration to create a summer full of fun, for and with your children. Regardless of whether you have your own garden or have to rely on public areas for your dose of nature, this book has something for everyone.'

'How can a TV generation be motivated to care for the environment? There is a brilliant answer in the Nature Kindergarten Workshops by Irmgard Kutsch.' --Sibylle Alexander, Camphill Correspondance, March/April 2007 'This book is full of innocent fun activities to do with children ... I am now itching to get out and make a caterpillar house so that we can see them grow to beautiful butterflies.'

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
