Hands-on Science at Its Best: The Kid’s Guide to Exploring Nature

Today at Wrapped in Foil blog we have a discussion of a 2015 finalist for the  AAAS/SubaruSB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books in the Hands-on Science Book category, The Kid’s Guide to Exploring Nature (BBG Guides for a Greener Planet) by a team of educators from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and illustrated by László Veres.

What a lovely title! First of all, the book is beautifully illustrated. In fact the illustrations are so detailed and complex, it could easily be used as a seek-and-find book for the youngest set.

It is also packed with information. Roughly organized by season, it has hands-on activities, explanations of careers (such as nature educator and field biologist), explanations of habitats, and identification guides.

The Kid’s Guide to Exploring Nature is an exciting new book for young nature lovers and scientists. Every nature educator is going to want a copy, as well.
