Nature Study

"Nature Knowledge the most important for Young Children.--It would be well if we all persons in authority, parents and all who act for parents, could make up our minds that there is no sort of knowledge to be got in these early years so valuable to children as that which they get for themselves of the world they live in. Let them once get touch with Nature, and a habit is formed which will be a source of delight through life. We were all meant to be naturalists, each in his degree, and it is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things."

~ Charlotte Mason

"As soon as he is able to keep it himself,

a nature-diary is a source of delight to a child."

Excellent for women of all ages to enjoy! I just love the pictures in this book.

Excellent for mothers to promote nature study and I think older girls would appreciate this book as well.
This is a personal favorite of mine and is written in a fictional story format.

This is the grandaddy of nature study books but is quite in depth with information and nature study questions.
This book is excellent for those who are serious about nature study.
