Description

Here are lots of great year-round ideas and fun-filled activities for kids who love the outdoors.

Mark a trail, make a bug trapper, weave a windcatcher with sticks and yarn, learn about the animals that make those nighttime noises. Find animal homes, search for toads or snakes, and play detective with a tree stump. You can learn new and surprising things about the natural world, about chipmunks and salamanders, woodpeckers and centipedes. And you'll discover how you can play your part in caring for the natural environment.

In the Woods is a fascinating, action-packed introduction to the exciting world of forest natural history.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is packed with great ideas to help young naturalists exploer life in the woods. Aimed at children aged eight to 13, it addresses the reader directly, telling you what to do and what to look for... I'd recommend it as a fine resource book to help prepare parents, teachers or camp cancellors for leading children on a nature hike."

— London Free Press

"For city slickers like me and my family, books like this are invaluable... In The Woods is a great introduction to recognizing and studying the different kinds of trees, moss, insects and some species of wildlife... fun for children all over Canada, as their first step for discovering the world around them. This book is also great fun for parents.

— St. John's Telegram

"Would be very useful to consult before planning a field trip. Well-organized and informative... excellent practical tips on safety and trail markings... offers young naturalists plenty of appealing ideas for independent observation. Recommended."

— Canadian Book Review Annual

"...In the Woods will help young readers understand why any area of great natural beauty is something to cherish and preserve."

— The Muskokan

"In The Woods would be a useful book to have in your classroom or library, especially when learning about nature, prior to going on an environmental field trip. This exciting book should also be an essential item to take along to the summer cottage, or on vacation, as it will provide many ideas and activities to entertain and teach children, and adults about the outdoors. They will be able to take some important facts away with them, after reading this book."
