Celebrating nature

I believe nature is excellent for our soul. Not only getting in touch with nature and loving them help us to become well-balanced beings, but a walk in the woods also helps to destress too!

My children feel better when they spend their time outdoors in the greeneries, especially my son. He looks happier and livelier unless the sun is scorching hot.

Other than playing in the outdoors, we encourage them to watch BBC Earth and National Geographical. They love it. Once in a while, my son’s interest in animals fights and natural disaster would also prompt him to borrow books of similar genres from the library.

I found these 2 beautiful books from the library that I have encouraged my children to read, and I would like to share them here.

Charles Darwin around the World Adventure*

In 1831, Charles Darwin embarked on his first voyage to travel around South America aboard a ninety-foot-long ship named the Beagle. Charles collected inserts, dug up bones, and encountered volcanoes and earthquakes.

Charles Darwin

This book serves as a great introduction to children as well as adults who want a quick understanding of Charles Darwin’s major encounters in his first journey as an explorer. The book emphasizes his delight as he learned to understand nature, collected plants, animals and fossils. The illustrations are beautiful with lots of details and maps to pore over.

Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt*

This highly rated beautiful and poetic book explores the hidden natural world that lie between stalks, under the shade of leaves and down in the dirt. Up in the garden, the world is full of green—leaves and sprouts, growing vegetables, ripening fruit. But down in the dirt exists a busy world—earthworms dig, snakes hunt, skunks burrow—populated by all the animals that make a garden their home.

A superb add-on for kids who are showing interest in gardening or preparing for the science lessons.
