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
      Lynn

  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
      Lynn

  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

  5. I am also having issues with PayPal not connecting for me to purchase. Could you send me an invoice? Also, if my daughter is only 2 1/2 would this be age appropriate?

  6. Can you recommend a company in the United States that will print it with a spiral bound like you have in your photos? Thanks!

  7. Hi Lynn, I can’t seem to buy your beautiful curriculum, it won’t connect to paypal. Is there another way ?
    Many thanks,
    Sophie

    1. Good evening, Sophie!

      I am terribly sorry that you are having the PayPal issue; it’s a little hit & miss. Most people are fine, but a few are experiencing difficulties. PayPal insist that it is an issue with the customer’s address, and thus their bank declines the payment.

      Here’s how we can resolve this:

      * I can send a direct PayPal invoice, which usually resolves the issue. (This makes me think that PayPal are incorrect in what they are saying!) Let me know if you would like me to do this, I just need your PayPal linked email address, and the name(s) of the book(s) you wish to purchase.

      *Customers have also told me that they are able to check out without actually logging into PayPal, and this 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 to contact PayPal directly and ask them to look into this for you.

      I am so sorry that this is so frustrating, thank you so much for your patience!

      Kind regards

  9. Just wanted to say we started the curriculum in September and have managed every week except one, so far! It is such a pleasure to do this with my six year old. We just started home educating this year, after a brief try at school, and it’s given us focus and brought such joy ! I feel like I’ve learnt a lot too!
    Thank you so much 🙂

    1. Thank you, Susan for taking the time to leave your kind words! Wishing you much joy on your home educating journey.

  10. I tried purchasing the eBook and it will not connect to PayPal. I spoke with Paypal’s IT department and they said it is and issue with the merchant. Is there another way to receive the items? When I try to check out it only gives me the option to go through PayPal.

    1. Good evening, Cristee!

      I am terribly sorry that you are having the PayPal issue; it’s a little hit & miss. Most people are fine, but a few are experiencing difficulties. It has been ongoing for some time & PayPal insist that it is an issue with the customer’s address, and thus their bank declines the payment, so it appears that they tell us different things!

      Here’s how we can resolve this:

      * I can send a direct PayPal invoice, which usually resolves the issue. Let me know if you would like me to do this, I just need your PayPal linked email address, and the name(s) of the book(s) you wish to purchase.

      *Customers have also told me that they are able to check out without actually logging into PayPal, and this 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!

  11. Could you please help me! I want to purchase this and Paypal won’t let me. Could you send me an invoice? Thank you!

  12. Good morning, I purchased the ebook through PayPal in 2016. At that time I printed the book and we have been enjoying bits and pieces of the curriculum. We recently had water damage throughout our homeschool room. I wanted to reprint the book, but my email with the link is long gone. Is there any way I can get the link without purchasing it again?
    Thank you!

  14. I am not sure how long I am supposed to wait but I put this and haven’t received either a receipt or the link yet. Thanks

      1. Good evening, Yulia!

        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. It will come from Payhip, the company that host my book online, and go directly to your PayPal-linked email address.

        I have checked the email address that you used to post this comment, but I can find no sale linked to it. Is it possible that your PayPal account is linked to a different email address? Did you receive a PayPal invoice?

        I shall await your response, so that I can resolve this for you.

        Kind regards
        Lynn

  15. Hello, I am have been trying to purchase this (yesterday and today) and I keep getting an error that payment can’t be processed. I am trying to pay with Paypal. Is there another location I can purchase from, or can you check your end of things? I purchased other items yesterday via Paypal so I know it’s not my end. Thanks so much!

      1. Thanks for getting back to me. So, I just purchased without logging in…that is the strangest thing ever! Paypal is weird sometimes. Thanks again for the info, I’m just glad I was able to purchase. We are greatly looking forward to working through this!

        1. Thank you for taking the time to let me know, Ashley, I am glad that you were able to get this resolved.
          Happy exploring!
