Now that the weather is slowly cooling off, I am so excited to get away from the house and into nature more. The kids and I are going to being an ongoing nature study. I checked out some pretty incredible books from the library that discuss bird types, fish, tracks, animal sounds, trees, etc that every child should know. I am excited to start hiking again, observing, listening, writing in our nature journals and breathing fresh air! I found this book:
and love how it was first, written in 1956 and second how it pushes us past our squeamish feelings towards bugs and allows kids to dive in and learn and observe and natural little scientists.
Thank you God for autumn!
