Nature's Notes by Judy Burris and Wayne Richards

Nature's Notes
Bite-sized Learning and Projects for All Ages
Award Winning!!
The 2012 PREFERRED CHOICE AWARD (Kids Educational Books category)

The photography in this nature book is amazing!! Such a variety of plants and animals that you can easily explore in nature. It encourages young ones to get out there and search themselves for some of these beautiful and even squeamish things.
Encouraging kids to get out there and find nature, so needed in this generation of video games and computer craze. 
One of the chapters was A Trip to the Park, so off we went with book in hand to explore our park. 
 We found lots of plant life, and birds galore who wouldn't stay still for a photo shoot. The pond however gave us a great look at some birds!
This spiral bound notebook is perfect for taking with you to the park, nature center or even your backyard. It includes:
Fun with Flowers
Take your Best Shot on how to photograph nature
What's Bugging You?
This is for the Birds

The trip to the park chapter coves reptiles, water critters, and frogs!
Very thorough in it's scope of natural finds.   This book is a must have! Great reference for some of those things you discover. Also there are fun projects included like how to press flowers, and feeding hummingbirds. 

Fall is the perfect time of year to get the family outdoors and exploring. Be sure to pick up a copy of Nature's Notes to take along with you!! It includes note taking and sketch paper in the back for you to journal your adventure.

Check out their website Butterfly Nature for more books, and great information on these photographers!
