My Big Book of the Outdoors

And did you know
That all of nature’s wonders
Are everywhere around you
In the big outdoors?

Jane Werner Watson 1958
illustrated by Eloise Wilkin

It’s been a natural science wonderland around here. We’ve been watching fireflies in the evenings and Charlotte made some discoveries today with the magnifying glass. We looked at a beetle, a leaf, some sticks, a pill bug, ant, and millipede (she loves bugs- even tries to kiss them!). Tonight we read “My Big Book of the Outdoors” illustrated by Eloise Wilkin. Her classic vintage illustrations make everything wonderful.
