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. Hello there

      Please could you explain further the difficulties that you are having: “I can’t access the book now”

      Have you lost the email with your download link? Were you unable to download the book. If you can give me as much information about the problem you have, we can get this sorted out asap.

      Kind regards

  1. I’ve tried many times to purchase, and it won’t go through past the paypal sign-in page. Is this no longer available??

  2. Hi Lynn,

    How are you producing the copywork pages for your guided natural journal? I have purchased and would like to use the software you are using to produce more copywork pages. Could you share? It’s lovely.
    warmly, Pamela

    1. Good morning, Jenny!

      I am terribly sorry that you are having this PayPal issue; it’s a little hit & miss. Most people are fine, but a few are experiencing difficulties.
      PayPal’s insist that it is an issue with the customer’s address.
      I have been sending out direct invoices to those affected,if you would like me to do this, please do let me know your PayPal-linked email address.
      Customers are telling me that they are able to check out without actually logging into PayPal, which has resolved this issue for them.
      Others have chosen to send the funds directly to me, you can send it to: lynnseddonhs@gmail.com If you do this, please may I ask that you email me to let me know; I would need to manually send your book, & may not see your payment!
      The alternative is that you contact PayPal directly and ask them to look into this for you.

      Thank you so much for your patience.

      Kind regards Lynn

  3. Hi! I just ordered our copy of Exploring Nature With Children and I love what I see! My only problem is my download only went to the end of August (p. 242). Can you send me the rest of the pages? Thanks for your time and efforts with this!

    1. Good evening, Sherry.

      Hmm, that sounds correct; the book is 242 pages long. It begins in September. Could you please check & make sure it is complete?

      Thank you!

      Kind regards

  4. Hi there,

    I purchased the curriculum couple weeks ago and just realized I never received my e-mailed copy. I did save the file to my computer but would like to have a backup copy in my e-mail as well. How can I request an e-mail?

    1. Hi Shawna, I use my email for temporary back up too. In the future you can always send yourself the file. I email to myself all the time! ;o) Jamie
