The Berenstain Bears' Big Book of Science and Nature {Poppins Book Nook}

This months theme for the Poppins Book Nook is The Great Outdoors. Winter has finally arrived in Melbourne and the cold has well and truly set in making us rather loath to enjoy the great outdoors.  The one thing I truly enjoy about books is they have the ability to take you places without leaving the comfort of your home.

This month we have chosen to enjoy a few books on nature.  We have enjoyed The Burgess Bird Book for Children and focusing on  The Berenstain Bears Nature Guide (Almost everything small bears and kids need to know about... the animals, the plants, the earth itself, with actual facts about frogs, possums, birds, fish, trees, rocks, lady bugs, earthquakes ... and lots more).  This is part of our The Berenstein Bears Big Book of Science and Nature book. We have also enjoyed The year at Maple Hill Farm.

This month I have been inspired once again to start Nature Journaling and so Sir N and I are preparing to make journals.  We have gone on a few field trips and taken photographs to capture the beauty around us.  It's amazing to see what is out there even in the middle of winter.  We have been sharing our pictures on Instagram.  Our accounts are:  Macro_Passion and Explorer Pugsley.

We took some time to explore the zoo and Sir N took this beautiful photograph of the serval there which was featured on the Zoo Facebook page.

  1. Visiting your blog from the U.S. We love books at our house and I've been enjoying your recommendations. :-)

  2. I used to love the Berenstain Bears when I was little, so thanks for the trip down memory lane! Hope you are not too chilly, here in New Zealand it is still sunny but the wind is freezing!

  3. You can't go wrong with Berenstain Bears. :-)
