9781556525568: Sunny Days and Starry Nights: Nature Activities for Ages 2–6

Adults and preschoolers can discover the outside world together with this updated and newly illustrated edition of this popular nature activity book. Tailored to the abilities and interests of preschool children, this book contains 67 activities selected to enhance young children’s creativity, observational skills, and understanding of the natural world. By examining insects and pebbles, discovering wind and sun, or observing the growth of seedlings, preschoolers will delight in the many ways the world comes alive. Using household items like yarn, finger paints, or a flashlight, the crafts and activities are simple to produce and exciting to learn. A seed mosaic, an elf house from a milk carton, and a pinecone mobile are some of the fun projects preschoolers can create while discovering science along the way. Children will especially enjoy the nighttime activities, such as an owl walk in the winter, a firefly picnic in summer, a flashlight hike, stargazing, and attracting moths to nectar. Parents will appreciate how the activities encourage early learning skills, such as identifying colors and shapes, describing feelings, comparing, and expressing observations and ideas.

About the Author:

Nancy F. Castaldo is a former environmental educator and is the author of Deserts, Oceans, Rainforests, Rainy Day Play, and Winter Day Play!

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 4?A simple introduction to the natural world. Topics include weather, trees, sun, stars, seeds, and birds. Although many of the activities are tried and true, such as sand pictures or plaster animal prints, some ideas are new twists on old favorites. For example, stale doughnuts are covered with peanut butter and birdseed to make bird feeders, and a large sponge is used to grow a simple hanging garden. Each activity lists the easy-to-find required materials, instructions, and additional activities. Large, bold, black-ink drawings show active children displaying or making the featured activities. Like Jean Potter's Nature in a Nutshell (Wiley, 1995), this title points budding scientists down the right path. An enjoyable additional item.?Amy Adler, Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, OH
