"Beautifully designed with black and white line drawings, this large tome gives the feeling of a home textbook. It provides information and activities that will inspire interest in the outdoor world."
- Melissa Taylor, Imagination Soup
"It's a big book - almost 400 pages - with lots of drawings, watercolors, and text answering many questions about animals and other aspects of the natural world, like "Why do birds make nests?" It appeals to a wide range of ages - I'd say kids from eight to 14, depending on whether they are reading it with an adult or on their own."
