Our Nature Hike and resources.

Tammy's post last week inspired our family to go on a nature hike with my kids.  I really enjoyed the time with them and remembered again just how wonderful nature walks can be.  
Starting on the trail.  



  We enjoyed each others company, and made shared memories. There is something powerful about slowing down.


 

We found shell fungus and spent some time observing it.  


 Here are some resources that we use when we observe nature, or want to read more about it. 
We love the series One Small Square .  There are a variety of books in this series including one on the woods. 


One Small Square books. 



 Another favorite is the Fun with Nature Take Along Guide.  That is a very well loved book in our house.  This version is compilation of several books in the series.

Any of the Audubon Field books are particularly helpful.

We also love the Dover  coloring books as well.

We also use the Fun with Nature book. I like that it is clear and easy to follow for both kids and adults.
