© 2014,Reading a book before or after a trip to the zoo, a nighttime look at the stars, or a walk in the forest can connect children to nature while inspiring discussion and questions. Teacher and librarian Kathleen T. Isaacs spotlights recent titles appropriate for children ages up to 10 that will help parents and caregivers encourage children's wonder and enthusiasm for nature. Themed chapters such as "Nature Encounters," "Backyard and Garden," "From the Earth to the Sky and Beyond," "Naturalists," "Habitats," "Plants and Trees," "Animals," and "Books for Babies and Toddlers" identify picture books on nature-related subjects that kids love. Isaacs also offers supplemental science activities that adults and children can do together, such as a backyard bird count and hands-on projects with leaves and flowers. The hundreds of picture books listed and annotated in this resource will enrich the joy and excitement of nature for readers of all ages.
