“Chock-full of tips on how to spot and identify, by sight or by sound, animals, insects and plants in various seasons and habitats, how to create a backyard sanctuary and how to record observations, Russo’s text is enhanced by Kevin Byron’s photographs, most in color.... Impressive!”—The Washington Post.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-A fascinating introduction to observing nature and discovering clues about animals and plants. The book encourages beginners to "open their eyes" and identify signs of wildlife, and explains how to keep a journal to record observations. The description of identifying characteristics is especially helpful, e.g., field marks; behavioral activities of animals; and details of texture, color, shape, size, and patterns for plants and trees. There are also chapters on summer sounds made by birds, insects, and frogs, as well as sights to look for in various habitats. The full-color photographs are especially attractive and useful in identification. Appropriate sites around the world are mentioned for types of wildlife viewing. Good safety tips are included, as well as how to use binoculars, magnifiers, and field guides. There's a wealth of information here for budding naturalists.
