This engaging book looks at human time as well as how time passes in nature. How do animals and plants sense changes in time? What changes do we see in nature throughout a day, month, and year?
What kid wouldn't be interested in a book that's all about everything they like, wish for, think about, do, dream, fear, aspire to, etc. Less demanding and more fun than a journal, this is a catalyst for self-discovery, a means of expanding writing proficiency and a terrific gift. Discover, explore, comment, rate, remember, wish, plan - and make lists!
Both classroom teachers and vacationing parents will find this little book to be a charmer. Counting from one to twelve, Sue picks up shells--periwinkle, kittens paw, scallop--and carefully adds them to her bucket as a gift for Grandma. She and her friend identify the shells, and when they discover one that still has the mollusk living inside they put it back in the water--learning that shells are actually the abandoned homes of sea animals--but sometimes the animal is still home! The paperback edition contains a tear-out shell identification card to enhance the hands-on lesson in simple wonders from nature.
