City kids might be more used to the elements of the concrete jungle (subways, taxicabs, and crowds) but there is also much for them to explore in the natural world. From the author of I Love Dirt! and Let's Go Outside! comes a new guide for urban children and their parents, It’s a Jungle Out There! 52 Nature Adventures for City Kids. Author Jennifer Ward provides unique activities, games, and adventures specific for city environments so curious kids can engage their sense of wonder and imagination.
It's compact (throw it in your purse moms) and complete with practical information including "Plant the Seed" sidebars that help direct your child's learning. All the seasons are covered in the chapters as well as an additional tool, "Indoor Inspirations: Activities to Experience the Outdoors When the Weather Prevents Going Out and About."
52 Open-ended activities include:
* Packing and Tracking in the Park
* Pondering Ponds and Puddles
* Stars Above
* Neighborhood Nest Map
* Snow Stories
Jennifer Ward offers additional resources ad recommendations at the conclusion of her book to help exploring families that want the journey to continue. Susie Ghahremani's appealing and simple illustrations add to the gentle feel of this handy book.
Whether the weather is wonderful or wicked help your child become connected to the rhythms and opportunities that abound in nature.
