Most books have their place on a shelf. They don’t get out much, and if they do, they’re bundled in a bag, read on a train, cosied up in bed and then it’s back on the shelf. There’s one book that is venturing outside though, into the wild, encouraging little ones to roam through nature and have an adventure. The Nature Explorer’s Scrapbook is part album, part manual and part nature guide and it comes with a promise: “once you start looking closely at the natural world, you will never be bored again.”

Channel your inner David Attenborough and uncover the simple wonders of the world, the wonders we often take for granted, discovering fascinating facts by venturing out on educational escapades. With this trusty guide by your side, the whole family will uncover a whole new appreciation of nature. You’ll learn to press flowers, inspect insects, go on cloud quests and even collect colour, light and water. It’s all a walk in the park!

The instructions, detailed pictures, and inspirational quotes from poets and philosophers are presented in such a way that you just want to soak up all the information. Feeding into children’s instinctive curiosity, the most striking thing about this guidebook is that you can put your own stamp on it. A base to build upon, the pages will be full of individuality, a project that you nurture and help grow.

From sticking down leaves to crafting a feather display to a special space to stick down your favourite discoveries, eventually you’ll have a book full of memories of family trips, a true celebration of nature you can share together!
