12 Nature Books To Get The Kids Exploring The Great Outdoors

May 30, 2019

We picked up a few field guides at the bookstore on a whim last week to keep handy for our trips to the beach, on hikes and other outings this summer. I'm a sucker for a good nature book (especially the ones that are both visually stunning to flip through and chock full of information), so I thought I'd share a dozen favorites finds with you.
