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. Hi Lynn

    I’m trying to purchase Exploring Nature with Children and the Cursive Journal but paypal is not working for the checkout. Please can you help with an alternative purchasing option.

    Thank you

    • Karen, 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 14 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.

      Here is a link to the sample to help you decide if this will work for your family:

  2. Hello, I am with a charter and would love to purchase this curriculum using my school funding. Is it available through any other outlets (like Rainbow Resource) that might be vendors with my school, or are you interested in becoming a vendor with a charter school?

    • Good morning, Lauren!

      Thank you for your message. ENWC is only available through my own website. Please feel free to ask your school to send over the info:
      Please be aware though that I have a backlog of charter school applications to get through. I am doing my best, but I am ‘just’ a mum at home, and this is the thing that keeps getting pushed to the bottom of the pile.

      Thank you for taking the time to contact me, I appreciate your message very much. Kind regards

  4. Hi Lynn,

    I’m having no success in purchasing your book either. I’ve tried more times than I should admit;) Is there an email on your end that I can send my PayPal email…I’m very excited to have this in my new homeschool resource library.
    Thank you so much,

  5. Hi Lynn,

    I’m also having no success at purchasing your book. Is there an email I can send my PayPal email to? Or another way to purchase? I’ve tried more times than I should admit;)

    I’m really excited to have this is my new homeschool kit!

  8. Where am I able to print this book? My printer is currently broken. Where do I get a release from author saying it is ok to print? Thanks so much. 😊

  9. I also just tried to purchase via PayPal also. Saying it went though but it went to a strange site that looked like a bunch of computer programming language so I’m not sure if purchase went through. Can you please help me figure out if it went through or how to purchase if it did not? Thanks! 😊
