As the title suggests, this books provides 52 project ideas to introduce children to nature.
The description does mention the projects are "open-ended", but to me, I found them too vague. The projects included things like searching for rocks of varying shapes and sizes; puddle splashing; and stargazing. These are all worthwhile activites, however I was expecting more detailed projects.
This would be a good book for families who don't get outside much, and want to start with basic activities. It would also be good for slightly older children would be able to better comprehend and understand some of the science-based discussions the book promotes.
If you have young children, it would just as easy to go outside, let something capture their attention, and go from there. Most of the discussions are too advanced for little kids, and the actual actions are things they will likely do on their own without any prompting. by Sarah Merchant
