This gorgeously illustrated guide will inspire kids to look closely at the world around them! Created by the experts at the renowned Brooklyn Botanic Garden, 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. Detailed, scientifically based drawings help young scientists identify hundreds of North American plants and animals, while dozens of fun projects include keeping a journal, conducting field experiments, and exploring nature with all five senses.

I got a copy of this book as part of my Brooklyn Botanic Garden membership, and I just had to buy some more copies for the little explorers in my life. The illustrations are wonderful, and it's chock full of information that is fun and easy to understand.
