Exploring Nature With Children: A Guided Journal

Exploring Nature With Children is a complete, year-long curriculum designed to guide you, step by step, through an entire calendar year of nature study. Completely self-contained, this book has all the information you need to make nature study happen regularly for your family.

Exploring Nature With Children contains:

  • An entire chapter devoted to getting you up and running with nature study.
  • Forty-eight weeks of themed and guided nature study; four weeks for each month of the year, organised by season. Exploring Nature With Children can be used as a whole year’s study, or dipped in and out of as you please.

Each week’s guided study contains the following:

  • A themed nature walk.

Exploring Nature With Children will take you step by step through a themed, Charlotte Mason-style, nature walk. There is no need to hunt through various books and websites; all the information you need is there, leaving you free to enjoy being out in nature with your child.

  • References to the Handbook Of Nature Study.

Exploring Nature With Children is completely self-contained, but includes references to related pages in the Handbook Of Nature Study by Anna Botsford Comstock, should you wish to delve a little deeper.

  • A themed book list.

With books for children of all ages, you will find a comprehensive list of living books related to the week’s nature study theme. Exploring Nature With Children is a self-contained course, so the book list is an extra tool, not a necessity.

  • A poem

Related to the nature theme of the week; a classic piece of poetry that can be used for copywork, dictation, or simply to just read aloud and enjoy.

  • A piece of art

The name and details of a piece of art that relates to the nature theme of the week has been included. This can easily be looked up online, or in art books available from your local library.

  • Extension activities for your child

Here you will find a list of activities, written directly to your child, that will extend their nature study throughout the whole of the week. You will find ideas for crafts, writing, science, maths, and more, with absolutely no busy work.

  1. Can you please email me an invoice for Exploring Nature with Children? I made several attempts yesterday and today, but payment portals do not seem to be working. Thank you.

    1. Hello there, Anya!

      I have tried to make this book as family friendly, and multi-age as possible. It gives you the necessary scientific information for each week’s nature theme, then the parent can present those facts as they see fit, to each individual child. A child that is old enough to keep a nature journal will get the most out of it, but I have included suggestions for using the book with much younger children, too. I wrote this book because I had been looking to buy something like this since my 15 year old daughter was a toddler. I would have jumped at this book, even with a tiny, because it would equip me as a mum to talk with my child about nature, without having to go through a pile of different books first!

      The extension activities included vary; venn diagrams, writing poetry, making models, amongst many others. I have been very careful to use only relevant, authentic activities, with absolutely no busy work. Some will suit younger children, others are for the older child.

      You can view samples if you click through in the shop above. This should help you to decide if ENWC will work for your own family.

      Happy exploring!

    1. Good morning, Nicola!

      Thank you for your message.

      I am terribly sorry that you have not received your download link, the system is automated, so you should have received an email as soon as you checked out. I shall re-set your purchase now, so that another email is sent to you straight away. It will come from Payhip, the company that host my book online.

      Please could you let me know once you have received it?

      Kind regards
      Lynn

  2. Just wondering if anyone has had trouble with the card declining. I’ve never had this problem before and notice through comments that there have been several issues with purchasing/downloading. Has anyone tried to purchase within the past few days?

    1. Good morning, Shanna!

      I am terribly sorry that you are having this issue.
      I have just had a look at the failed payment. It appears that your payment was declined by your bank. I only am shown a generic reason (I have emailed you with an attached screenshot.) But the most likely issue is that the sale is overseas, and it’s a method of fraud prevention (I am in England.) If you contact your bank and authorise the payment, you should be fine to check out.
      Again, huge apologies, I hope that you are able to get this resolved.
      Do let me know if you have any further questions.

      Kind regards

    1. Hello there, Alina!

      The website had a major infrastructure update earlier and there was a caching case we didn’t consider – it’s been resolved now, so you should be ok to go ahead & purchase.
