I thought I'd share a book that Little J received for Christmas with you. It's called The Nature Connection an Outdoor Workbook by Clare Walker Leslie. It looks like such a wonderful book and nature journal all in one.
The first section of the book is devoted to teaching children how to be a naturalist. The second section teaches about the sky and the seasons. The third section and better part of the book is month by month nature lessons and activities. The book is geared toward getting kids outdoors and exploring their world. He is quite excited to start using it.
