Reviews - What do customers think about Usborne Complete First Book of Nature (First Nature)?
Held attention of wiggly just 6 May 24, 2008
For a book filled with fairly "dry facts", the language and art really held my son's attention. I know he comprehended because he pretended he was various animals in the following week. It is also pleasant on the eye and not so simple the grown-up will rush through to get away from it.
Fun book for child and parent alike Apr 14, 2002
My four year old daughter loves this book. I use it as our homeschooling text for science and nature study, but it is not like a textbook at all. It is a compilation of seven separate titles in the Usborne First Nature series: Birds, Trees, Flowers, Butterflies and Moths, Wild Animals, Fishes, and Creepy Crawlies. Each chapter contains games like hunt the bumblebee in the Butterflies and Moths chapter, and watch the leaf bud open (on the upper right corner of each page) of the Trees chapter. My daughter is fascinated by the fabulous illustrations, such as the giant beetle in the Creepy Crawlies chapter, and the sharp teeth of the Dragon Fish in the Fishes chapter. The text is interspersed throughout the illustrations and is informative and entertaining. I am amazed at how much I learn each time I read part of this well-done book with my child. I highly recommend it!
Wonderful Elementary Natural Science Text Jul 4, 2001
Many Christian parents struggle with finding science and nature books that are free of evolutionary propaganda.
This sound pictorial primer offers facts, activities and good quality illustrations for your child's early forays into the realm of natural science. Be sure to look at Usborne's other offerings; you will not be disappointed.
