Field Trips: Bug Hunting, Animal Tracking, Bird-Watching, and Shore Walking with Jim Arnosky

by Jim Arnosky

Published by HarperCollins, 2002
96 pages
ISBN: 0-688-15172-8

Ages 8 - 12

Ready to become a young naturalist? Arnosky explains how easy it is to become an observer of birds, bugs, and other creatures near us most of the time. Having a good pair of binoculars helps. For Arnosky that probably isn't as necessary as keeping a notebook and pencil handy when walking or traveling. After giving specific safety instructions, on how to avoid ticks, for example, Arnosky offers easily followed directions and easy-to-analyze sketches for a young person to follow independently, with a family member or adult friend, or as part of a group. Arnosky's book can be an outing planner or a guide while on a field trip. It might become a valued family or school manual, or a potential gift to other families throughout any season.
