There is an EcoJournal for each of the four seasons. A Kid's Summer EcoJournal invites kids to write about nature on pages exquisitely illustrated by Margaret Brandt. The author has included short entries from her nature journals, which express her irrepressible and unflagging delight in the natural world. Kids love to read about Trickle Creek, where fawns play on the lawn and young raccoons steal plums in the orchard. The Summer EcoJournal is packed with nature activities for exploring summer. Kids can build a turtle loafing platform, collect insect tracks, make a mushroom spore print, attract moths with a shining sheet, grow a giant sunflower, make sun prints, and enjoy dozens of other summer activities that teach them to love the world of nature. Based on solid science. Grades 3-up.

It offers nature activities like making a map of the place you observe, growing a huge flower and harvesting the seeds, baking a potato with heat from the sun, collecting grass and fireflies, following snails...." -- California Educator, Jun 98
