Awards & Honors:
School Library Journal
Young readers are encouraged to go outside and observe nature wherever they live, city or country, and then utilize those observations to create various complementary craft projects with everyday materials. Each spread includes short paragraphs about various aspects of nature, e.g., birds, deer, leaves, twigs. The book provides basic instructions and a materials list for creating projects such as a bird mobile, finger puppets, twig snowflakes, etc. The writing is accessible and the facts stick to the basics. The craft projects are simple and encourage the use of recycled materials from home; some will occasionally need adult supervision. The collage artwork is lovely and colorful, and the entire layout is very attractive. VERDICT: This is a nice addition to most craft collections for young children and could be used both at home and in a classroom setting.
