Synopsis

The Outside A Guide to Discovering Nature by Maria Ana Peixe Dias, Ines Teixeira do Rosari

Who does this footprint belong to? What is this worm up to? What is the name of this tree? Even if we live in the city, nature is still all around us: clouds and stars, trees and flowers, rocks and beaches, birds, reptiles or mammals. What are we waiting for? Let' s jump off the couch and begin exploring! Created in collaboration with a team of Portuguese experts, this book, which won the coveted Bologna Regazzi award, aims to arouse your curiosity about fauna, flora and other aspects of the natural world. It includes suggestions for activities and many illustrations to help the whole family get started, leave the house, and go out to discover - or simply admire - the amazing world that exists outdoors.

Reviews

Beautifully designed with black and white line drawings, this large tome gives the feeling of a home textbook. It provides information and activities that will inspire interest in the outdoor world. Melissa Taylor, Imagination Soup It's a big book - almost 400 pages - with lots of drawings, watercolors, and text answering many questions about animals and other aspects of the natural world, like Why do birds make nests? It appeals to a wide range of ages - I'd say kids from eight to 14, depending on whether they are reading it with an adult or on their own. Publisher's Weekly

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

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.
