Learning with Nature – Book Review

May 4, 2017

By my bed, I have a pile of books I dip into every now and then for a bit of inspiration. This book is now top of my pile; a must have resource for outdoor fun.

Learning with Nature is full of activities, games to get children outside, keep them motivated and most importantly of all having fun.

games, nature activities, seasonal activities and survival skills

 The book is split up into sections covering games, nature activities, seasonal activities and survival skills.

The book is straightforward to navigate and gets the right balance of pictures and text, which can be all too often overlooked in books. This book gets in just right.

The information is uncomplicated to follow and easy to digest, with top tips and interesting facts throughout the book.

Learning with Nature BookThe activities are well structured, though some of the activities work best with groups, but can be adapted for the family.

I like the extra information provided on what’s being learnt and provides some inspiration on questions you can ask your child to enhance their learning. We decided to try out a few of the activities.

We had a great fun trying out these activities

We had a great fun trying out these activities on a woodland walk and enhanced a walk into something much more exciting and educational for the children.
