Hillary's December 2016 pick, 3 of 4

A follow-up to Holland’s equally terrific book Naturally Curious, this beautifully illustrated book is just what its title says – a kind of daybook for nature. I found myself wondering aloud again and again at the surprising information found on these pages. Dragonfly migrations! Algae-eating worms that live in snow! This is the kind of book that will make you want to get outside to see for yourself the wonders in our own backyards.

— From Hillary Nelson

Description


This follow-up to Naturally Curious, a National Outdoor Book Award winner, is a day-by-day account of nature observations throughout the year. Daily entries include entertaining and enlightening observations about specific animal or plant activity happening in eastern North America on that date. Set up as a naturalist's journal, entries describe in detail sightings and events in the natural world and are accompanied by stunning color photographs of birds, animals, insects, plants, and more. Essays throughout describe specific events in nature happening during each month, while sidebars supply natural history facts and information pertinent to the topics of the month or the time of year.
