Nature's Secrets in Our Backyards and Beyond
(Second Edition 2019)
All it takes is a willing heart and the “sixth sense” of wonder to discover diamonds in your own back yard: stars twinkling in the night sky, dewdrops shimmering on a spider web in the morning sun, mica sparkling in gravel when you hold it up to the sun....
Use this companion to immerse you and your children in the beauty of each season. It reveals secret wonders just waiting to be discovered in your backyard through the language of poetry, picture books, children's literature, art, picture study, music and nature experiences that become memories with your children.
This companion is recommended for children of all ages. It is intended to be enjoyed year after year to experience worlds of wonder and create traditions that enrich daily life.
Nature's Secrets is not a curriculum, it is a way of life. A way of seeing a world of wonder all around us.
