Nature Girl

My 11 year old daughter has always been the "nature girl", it's even what my mom called her after finding out that she would play outside for hours in the summer, carrying around her bird identification book and pretending to be a bird. When I saw the book Nature Girl by Karen Whiting and Rebecca White I knew it would be something she loved.

What I like best about this book is that it isn't just about caring for the earth, but about caring for God's earth. It brings to light an environmental as well as a moral concern. As a homeschooling mother I wanted to incorporate this into our science lessons immediately upon receiving it.

It's a fun book. Filled with facts, projects, and crafts you barely know that you are learning because you are too busy having fun. Becca was spouting the fun facts off to me from another room and pointing out several projects that she hopes to do. It got her even more excited about nature and she has learned a lot from this book. Even I read through it when it arrived, finding it interesting though I am well above the age group this book was written for (mainly tweens). I think it would be great for a whole family to read together as it isn't exactly "girly" to me.

Disclaimer: This book was given to me by BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
