Jump-start curiosity with this take-along field guide for children, and sure to interest older children and adults with its delightful information and illustrations.
Backpack Explorer: Discovering Trees encourages junior naturalists to step outside and get curious about the trees they see, whether in their backyard, in their neighbourhood, in a park, or on a trail. With this take-along activity book — the fifth in the best-selling Backpack Explorer series from the Editors of Storey Publishing — kids will stop, look, listen, and touch as they search for leaves, count tree rings, notice the sound of birds or wind in the branches, gather pinecones, and feel bark.
Each page is packed with prompts and activities, including 12 interactive field guides for identifying common trees, simple craft projects such as Make a Tree Rubbing or Make a Nature Mask from colourful leaves, and simple discovery features with fun tree facts. Equipped with a real mini-magnifying glass, stickers, and log for recording tree finds, this book is the perfect accompaniment for any nature adventure. Filled with activities, checklists, and stickers, this interactive nature guide is fun to throw in a backpack to take with or to do a little home study.
Special lightweight durable hardcover, 48 pages.
