Clare Walker Leslie
The Nature Connection is our third nature-journaling-book by Leslie this week and I thought I would let her share with you why she created a workbook.
Book Brief & Learning Activities
This workbook, the expression of Leslie's desire to help children discover a sense of wonder about their home - the world in which they live - is a learning treasure trove. And it's beautifully designed! The book starts with a Note to Kids from Clare -- read what one student wrote after working with Leslie:
"One of the best things a student ever said to me was, "I used to think there was nothing in my backyard, but now I know it's a jungle out there!""
And the workbook ends with a substantial resource list for young people and their grown ups. In between is the opportunity for a child -- or family -- to create a long-treasured masterpiece of nature information.
