Now that I'm slightly obsessed with terrariums (and they seem to be everywhere), I'm finding all kinds of good books for inspiration. I actually picked this up to use for art scraps (I liked the pictures of mushrooms and ferns) but found myself reading about the different types of fungi and moss. Now it's become a helpful companion to learning about and identifying what we find in our backyard or on nature walks.

There's also cool instructions for making a mushroom spore print which I think we'll try.
