Enriching the Young Naturalist - review
This book contains ten chapters and just over 120 pages. It is not terribly long, but every page has valuable advice on how to keep young people engaged and excited about their investigations. They can act as professional scientists, conduct research, take part in focus based seminars, and produce naturalist art in the form of poetry, essays, and visual arts such as paintings and sculptures. Tools required are the same used by professionals- binoculars, magnifying glasses, sketchbooks, journals, cameras, etc. Nothing needs to be terribly expensive. City kids can get in on the nature observation without traveling by visiting a natural history museum, aquarium, or zoo. Museum collections can be quite extensive and augment what a child has learned through outdoor fieldwork.
I am really thrilled with this book, and recommend it highly! It's quite easy to see how anyone from an average student to a highly gifted one could enjoy and be enriched by this program.
