Review for My Nature Journal and Activity Book

Review for My Nature Journal and Activity Book

Ruby McConnell, Green, Nature, Activity Book, Activities, Colouring, Drawing, Weather, Non-Fiction, Mountain, Trees, Plants, Fun, Children's Books, My Nature Journal and Activity Book (A Girl's Guide to the Wild),I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

Things are opening up here a bit, but we still cannot go outside a lot (and besides I get totally panicky around people if I have to go outside because no one keeps to the 1.5 metre distance), but I still wanted to try out this book. Maybe if we are allowed to go camping in July/August I can buy this book and bring it with me. That would be fun!

Oh, but good news! There are A LOT of activities that one can do at home, thankfully since last year I got a garden so I can do a couple of these activities to keep track of weather and animals and the likes, and also do drawings and make poems, and more. That makes me very happy! I thought for this book you had to really go outside to the forest, nature parks, other nature stuff, but you can also do them at home or in your garden. Now I wish I could fill in the book, because that is the trouble with an ebook, you can’t.

This book was tremendous lot of fun with tons of tips and tricks, how to make things, stories to fill in, you are allowed to draw various things (sometimes out of memory, other times while being outside, there are puzzles. The book is set in various seasons. Of course we start with Spring. 🙂
All the activities and DIY things are clearly explained.

What I would have liked to see was that the different seasons would have different colours. Green is perfect for spring, but yellow would be nice for summer, red for autumn, blue for winter. Now it was just all one green colour.

It is just a shame that this ARC is an ecopy… I couldn’t really write down things or tape in things or draw. I am happy that I got this copy, but I think for some books it is better to only do physical copies so people can appreciate things a bit more. I still had fun, don’t get me wrong, but it was just a shame that I could only read and do things in my mind.

I would highly recommend this fun book to everyone, I will definitely be adding it to my collection and fill it all up with each season.

Star rating, 4 stars
