This gorgeously illustrated book will inspire kids to look closely at the world around them! Created by Brooklyn Botanic Garden's expert educators, it teaches children how to observe environments as a naturalist does and leads them on 24 adventures that reveal the complex ecosystems of plants and animals in the woods, at the beach, and in a city park. Dozens of fun projects include keeping a journal, conducting field experiments, and looking for the signs of the seasons. Detailed, scientifically based drawings help young naturalists identify hundreds of North American plants and animals while they explore nature with all five senses.
