All children long for the thrill of being in the dense jungle, surrounded by wild animals and fascinating plant life. Now they can go on a safari any time they want, without having to get on an airplane. They can just go to the nearest park, vacant lot, or even their own backyard. Arranged by season, the 52 simple and fun-to-do activities allow readers to go on a different safari each week. From observing earthworms in the spring to catching--and keeping-- snowflakes in the winter, these adventures introduce youngsters to the wonders of nature by encouraging them to experience it for themselves. Chock full of exciting facts, innovative ideas, and detailed black and white illustrations, this is an indispensable guide for young scientists everywhere.From Booklist:
Gr. 4^-6. A book of interest to teachers and parents as well as children. The 52 sections are divided equally among the seasons and include activities ranging from viewing clouds and stars to feeding chipmunks. Urban children may find the book less useful than kids who live outside the city, because some activities require a pond or a dead tree or a particular kind of plant. Teachers can put the book to best use by drawing on it to plan seasonal nature walks. The activities will also give children ideas for science project topics. Mary Harris Veeder
