Aimed at young people from the age of seven, this fun and informative book is the perfect companion for those wishing to make their first forays into the natural world.
'Nature Safari' is designed to encourage youngsters to learn all about nature in an active rather than a passive way, and to have fun at the same time.
Covering the most easily accessible habitats - the seashore, woodland, gardens, towns, parks, rivers and ponds - the book contains 100 nature topics and activities. These range from rockpooling, searching for animal tracks and signs, to discovering more about the sun, moon and stars.
For each subject there is an informative introduction, with simple notes on key identification features and when and where to go looking for wildlife, as well as interesting and amusing facts and anecdotes. Each subject features a 'project' which the reader can embark on to increase their knowledge, whether it is making a sundial, growing plants from seed in the garden, or going pond-dipping.
