A charming series inspired by the Forest School movement, teaching young children how to engage with nature from season to season.

A Field Guide to Spring is a pocket-sized introduction to spring, inspired by the Forest School movement. Building on children’s natural curiosity about the world around them, this book aims to establish a connection with nature at an early age that will go on to last a lifetime! Hunt for seedlings, squelch around in the mud, identify birds' eggs, and build your own nest. Discover how tadpoles transform into frogs and why rainbows appear in the sky. The first in the Wild By Nature series, A Field Guide to Spring features lyrical poems, hands-on crafts and activities, scientific facts, and identifier pages to help children find different plants and animals. Whether a child’s access to nature is in the form of an urban park, a private garden, a field, or a forest, there is so much to discover and experience.
