**Nature Book Giveaway**

**This Giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all who left a comment**

I recently wrote a review for The Curriculum Choice on a wonderful little book called Nature Adventures. The authors of the book were kind enough to give me a copy to giveaway for my review, however they also sent me a copy of one of their earlier nature books called Nature School, published by Frances Lincoln Children's Books

I absolutely love Mick Manning and Brita Granstrom's books. They are a delight to read, the illustrations gorgeous and on top of all that - informative! 

Nature School is ideally suited to children ages 4 - 12, although certainly not limited to that age range. My girls 13 and 15 enjoyed reading through it.  This little book is absolutely packed with ideas and projects to do.   Each chapter covers a different nature topic, each has some nature tips and a related project to do.

Topics include:

*A Nature Notebook
*Field Skills
*Nature Detective
*Tracks and Droppings
*Wildlife Feeding Stations
*Animal Homes
*Worm Farm
*Changing Bodies
*Nuts, Beans, Cones and Seeds
*How Seeds Spread
*Night-time and Moths
*Bats and Owls
*Litter and Pollution
*Make a Pond
*Water World
*Nature Displays
*Nature Walk
*Nature Party

This is the perfect book to keep Summer learning going, in a fun and interactive way. Lots of time spent outdoors together. Perhaps you could pack a picnic, your nature journals and supplies and spend many happy summer afternoons exploring and learning about your natural surrounds.

I am happy to post to anywhere in the world so this giveaway is open to all. To enter please leave a comment below. I will announce the winner on Friday June 14th, so be sure to check in and see if you have won ;o)
