The Young Naturalist's Backpack Kit is the perfect set for encouraging kids' natural curiosity and introducing them to the wonders of nature! It provides real hands-on tools that allow them to explore the worlds of birds, plants, insects, and more. As a parent or instructor, you'll feel the excitement of learning as you review things you first learned as a child, as well as the inspiration that the beauty and intricacy of nature imparts.
The included Watching Nature book helps kids get started with tips on what to look for and where. In addition, the fact-filled Golden Guides let them identify and learn about the treasures they find. As kids catch butterflies and bugs with the insect net, make a leaf and flower collection with the plant press, and watch birds and other small animals with the compact binoculars, they'll learn valuable observation skills and come to love the intricacies of the natural world.
The Young Naturalist's Backpack Kit is a Gold Award winner in the 2007 National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) competition for quality educational toys. (Find out more...)
