Nature in your Neighborhood, Marni Fylling

 

I thought this might be an interesting guide to have in our nature guide library, but it has quickly become THE GUIDE we use consistently. The illustrations are detailed and accurate, and there are interesting facts that make identifying plants and creatures fun. It fits easily in your hand, and even a large pocket, so we carry it around rather than leaving it on a shelf. I highly recommend this book - it will solve all the curious questions you have about nature in your neighborhood.
