A book of fun facts about plants, animals, and environmental sciences that helps children to get outdoors and connect with nature. Each fact includes related outdoor activities for you to observe, discover, and explore wildlife in your own backyard or neighborhood; a unique and physically active game to play with no materials needed; and a rhyming verse that ties each fact, activity, and game together and also serves an example of creative nature writing. Each double-page spread includes a beautiful, full-color illustration by artist Hugh Keiser, and is followed by two nature journal pages for you to record and draw your observations and discoveries. Resources include educational standards for teachers and homeschooling parents, a table of contents, and an index.
