Children’s Books Review: Nature Spotters Guides from Fine Feather Press | AD
What Can You Spot in the Garden? and What Can You Spot in the Woods? are two new wonderful books in a new series of beautifully illustrated Nature Spotters guides from independent natural history publishing company Fine Feather Press.
There is a clear connection between spending time in nature and our mental and physical well-being, for both adults and children. Spending time outdoors provides exercise and fresh air and also reduces feelings or stress and anxiety and helps us sleep better too – to mention just a few of the many benefits of enjoying the great outdoors.
These new Nature Spotters books are perfect companions for children to take with them when they head out on adventures far or near. Take What Can You Spot In The Garden? into the back garden to see what you can find there or take What Can You Spot In The Woods? on your next family hike in the woods. The books are a perfect size for taking with you in your backpack and are packed with fascinating facts and photos.
Each plant, flower, bug, bird, or animal has a circle next to it so that you can tick it off once you have spotted it which is a fun activity for little ones – a great way to keep children entertained (kids love having a mission!) and learning while enjoying the outdoors. There are 160 species in What Can You Spot in the Garden? and 190 species in What Can You Spot in the Woods? so plenty of things to look for!
At the start of each section there’s a quiz and at the end of each book there’s a certificate for finding 50 animals and plants. These delightful books are a great way to make exploring in nature even more fun and provide a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the creatures and plants around us – for both children and parents.
Coming up next in the What Can You Spot series are the titles What Can You Spot on the Seashore? and What Can You Spot in the Meadows?. They look great too!
