Thia a real good book to help you in your journal writing and study of nature. I bought it for my son who is doing a nature journal of his own. I gave it 5 stars!


Purchased this book for our grandson who lives in Honduras with his missionary parents. We were delighted and so was he! The book was wonderfully illustrated; and had many projects that he can do. It was great to see him pouring over the book; gleefully pointing out the many interesting things he could do. His main interest has been in bugs/insects....but this book will broaden his horizons as he explores nature with the suggestions and information in this book. We would highly recommend this.

Good for natural explorers, young and old, or family

The book is interesting. My kids, 4 and 7, and I like to explore the outdoors. The book includes the 5 major classes of vertebrates and most types of invertebrates, and plants. In addition to a lot of information for adult professional naturalists, it also tells you what you can do for fun as an amateur naturalist right in your yard or at home, e.g., put a beautiful spider web on a cardboard, make an ant town, make your own snake stick, make a pitfall trap, etc. Good for homechoolers or any family who like to explore with their kids. That's why the title is "The Amateur Naturalist."
