Product Description

Review

Young naturalists will find plenty of information about Canadian fields, woods and coastlines in this engaging nonfiction book. Topics covered include scat, galls, tortoise bugs, animal hibernation, tree rings, lichens, maple sap, fireflies, tides and sandpipers. Each chapter answers a question that is posed in child-friendly language: "Do you know what those weird growths on some plants are?" The clearly written explanations that follow also have a conversational tone. Children are encouraged to explore and engage with their surroundings. As Peggy Kochanoff says in her introduction, "You can try to solve some of the mysteries in nature. Often found as close as your own doorstep. All you need is curiosity and Patience. LOOK, LISTEN, SMELL and TOUCH”. Exceptional job on the illustrations and factual data! We are greatly anticipating using what we learned from this book on our many hikes and camping trips. Children of all ages will surely enjoy" Be a Wilderness Detective" - it is fun to read and an awesome learning resource for both children and adults alike.
