Nature Adventures is a treasure trove of activities, information, observation, pictures and poetry, featuring habitats from town and city, woodland and hedgerow to ponds and rivers, moorland and seaside. And even including car journeys!
‘Can your children identify the rambling ditty of a dunnock? Nor mine. A new book will introduce them to the wildlife under their noses, whether they live in the city or country.’ Daily Telegraph
Drawing upon their personal experience of exploring the natural world with their own young children Mick Manning and Brita Granström have produced a unique and inspirational book that will encourage families everywhere to go outdoors and explore the beauty and diversity of the natural world.
A nature adventure can happen anywhere, any time! Find the bear-like track of a badger...rough-count flocks of geese and waders...make a garden wildlife survey...'talk' to a woodpecker… recognise bird song...'know' tree buds...spot the signs of a hunting pike...
‘Can your children identify the rambling ditty of a dunnock? Nor mine. A new book will introduce them to the wildlife under their noses, whether they live in the city or country. With sketches as well as literary quotations, this book will transform the walk to school.’ Daily Telegraph
So get out there and have your own Nature Adventure!
