Just because you live in the city doesn't mean you can't enjoy nature. This compact guide by Jennifer Ward offers 52 nature-focused explorations, adventures, observations, and games that can help you and your child connect to nature while living in the city.
While it may be hard to see nature through the traffic, buildings, and busyness of the city, there is still much of the natural world to explore when you turn your gaze to the cracks in the sidewalk, the trees on the street, or the green spaces that your city offers. With the help of It's a Jungle Out There, become an urban birder, make your own man vs. wild observations, and discover the not-so-hidden pockets of nature in your neighborhood. From Random House.
Jennifer Ward is the author of I Love Dirt!, Let's Go Outside!, and numerous children's books, all of which present nature to kids.
For parents of children ages 4 to 8 years.
