One of an excellent series of child-friendly field guides. Take this along to help identify treasures found in the woods. Clear photos are there to make it easier to name and know the trees, birds, plants and other sightings along the way. Science writer Emily Laber-Warren keeps the information pithy but interesting to budding naturalists. The book is available alone or in a compartmentalized box that provides a mesh bag and magnified bug container. Kids can use the sturdy box for displaying items found on your walks in the woods.
