Book Sharing Monday (a day late)

So, I had every intention of sharing a book yesterday.  But one things lead to another and I never got back to the blog to share it.

So, here it is:  Wildlife Gardening: How to Bring Birds and Bugs to Your Backyard by Martyn Cox.

It's a wonderfully colorful books with lots of vibrantly colored photos detailing all the procedures and the 'How To' sections.  There are activities for children to 'make it' (build/create something), 'watch it' (make observations) and 'grow it' (growing, of course)!  Something I thought was unexpected was creating spaces for nocturnal animals such as bats and moths.

We are actively planning our gardens for the Spring and this was a perfect book with great information, child friendly projects and step by step directions.  If you're looking for something like this to get some cool ideas, this book should be on your list.

For more books shared through Book Sharing Monday hop over to Alex's blog, Canadian Home Learning and check them out!

Happy Reading!
