Because It’s Christmas - Group 5 gift unwrapped - Nature Discovery in My Backyard by the Little Environmentalists GIVEAWAY

The Little Environmentalists is “committed to developing and publishing children’s environmental education materials to promote environmental awareness, appreciation, knowledge, and stewardship.” As the next product in our Because It's Christmas Kids & Charity Giveaway, you may think that you have seen this book before and you would be right. Nature Discovery in My Backyard is such a great book that you can win it as a part of Group 3, Group 4, or Group 5. 3 copies of it have also been donated to the Relief Nursery of Collin County in Plano, TX.

When we were looking for sponsors for our Because It’s Christmas Kids & Charity Giveaway, The Little Environmentalists was a natural fit for the types of products we were looking for. The Little Environmentalists is a company dedicating to publishing educational childrens books that focus on helping kids develop an appreciation for nature and the world around them.

Their first book is called Nature Discovery in My Backyard.

From the website:

Product Description
Children will use their senses to explore nature. They will smell, hear, feel, and see their way through their own backyard nature discovery. Each page offers a unique look into nature with colorful pictures that will challenge your children to find all that nature has to offer. In the back of the book parents and educators will find amazing tips for going on a nature discovery with their children and students anytime of the year! The Nature Notes in the back of the book provide exciting information about the plants and animals in our nature discovery. This book also links to the Model Early Learning Standards so educators can use this book a a teaching tool.



The book is generally aimed at children 2-6 but can easily be enjoyed by older children, especially those interested in nature. It is laid out simply but contains an educational component on each page and and at the end of the book to help guide and challenge but also to help parents and educators use the book as a tool to learn about all that nature has to offer.

The book is the perfect size and length for kids and the images are appealing. The main “character” is a little girl who is exploring her backyard. The images appear to have been actual photographs that were modified to have a watercolor effect. It is attractive and adds a sense of whimsy that is essential for helping kids explore and expand their imaginations, and keep them interested. The short activities on each page are fun and interesting while being educational - the perfect combination. The back of the book contains “nature notes” and “tips for discovery” to help you help your child learn about nature.

P1 is my smart 'n sassy 7 year old who wants to know how everything works. She will love this book as it will send her on a journey of discovery while she is also being entertained. The easy reading quality will be perfect for her as she learns to read on her own and should become a well-loved book in no time.

The Little Environmentalists are releasing their second book, I'm Turning Green on December 1st.
