Nature Detectives Wanted!
Back in March when spring was still teasing us, we at Storey filmed our very first book trailer with the help of TurnHere video; author, naturalist, and artist Clare Walker Leslie; and a group of enthusiastic nature detectives ready and willing to brave mud and drizzle in search of nature outside their classroom.
The Nature Connection is an interactive workbook filled with dozens of fun things for kids to do in every season: write a poem; make a sketch; tell a story; record daily sunrise and sunset times for a month; draw a local map and mark the locations of trees, rocks, animals, and other sights; keep a moon journal; learn about the constellations; or collect leaves and bring them home to sketch and identify.
Look for it at your favorite bookstore!
