First Lessons in Nature Study

by Edith M. Patch

Description:  A delightful introduction to a variety of plants and animals, made especially interesting by the categories into which they are grouped. Readers will discover what plants provide sugar, which ones furnish fiber, and seven different ways plants have of dispersing their seeds. They will also meet many animals that vary widely in looks and behavior. Some have fins, others fur or feathers. Some are footless, while others have as many as one hundred feet. They will encounter animals that spin and animals that make their homes in a variety of places including caves, earth, and wood. Each chapter has questions to ponder and activities to do indoors and out.
