Product Description


Nice, educational nature series for children. (Hamilton Spectator 2019-11-01)

A great series to help interest and educate young children in exploring the world around them. (Margaret Kennelly School Library Journal 2019-10-01)

A fun book about nature and being mindful of the environment. (Kids Bookshelf Blog 2019-09-18)

The illustrations are full of details to be examined, and the posed rodent friends do have a real appearance of life to them... Instead of just passively providing youngsters with science facts, the books in "A Gumboot Kids Nature Mystery" actively engage readers in their learning. Overall, this series is an excellent age-appropriate introduction to a number of science-related topics. Highly Recommended. (Dave Jenkinson Canadian Review of Materials 2019-09-20)

(starred review) Adapted from the TV show The Gumboot Kids, this series of books celebrates the joy and wonder of mindfully exploring the natural world. As Scout tends to his garden he notices something is missing -- his caterpillar friend has vanished! But where did she go? Join Scout and Daisy as they search for clues to solve the mystery. (Canadian Children's Book Centre's Best Books for K 2020-07-01)

I'm always advocating the importance of fostering a love of nature in the very young, so welcome this series which clearly aims to get young children outdoors and eager to discover more about the world around them; these stories are certainly engaging and contain just the right amount of information in the narrative to spark their curiosity. (Jill Bennett Red Reading Hub 2019-10-05)

A most charming and instructive collection of nature mystery books which encourages children to head outside and discover their natural world... Extensive educational curriculum guides have also been assembled to accompany each of the titles... Scout and Daisy act as motivating nature guides as they introduce readers to memorable learning encounters via conversations, questions and research. A meticulously created miniature community consisting of a village, forests, gardens, hills and valleys serve as a rich environment in which they explore... Outstanding new series. (Senta Ross Canadian Childrens Book News 2019-12-01)

These books are beautiful, with full page artwork that captures the eye and attention... There is so much within the pages to inspire creativity and learning... Scout and the Gumboot Kids and the series, both on television and the books by Firefly Books are such a great resource for kids to learn, and entertaining and cute to boot! (Erin Still Life, With Cracker Crumbs Blog 2020-01-16)

Winner, 2019 Best Canadian Picture Books (CBC Kids Books 2019-12-20)

The stories feature two adorable mice... The amazing depictions are full of life-like detail. (Jane Muller City Parent Magazine 2019-08-29)
