Ready to roll with your little ecologist? Head to the park to engage all the senses and discover new things—living things!
Shh. If we’re really quiet, what can we hear?
Did you know your nearby park is its own ecosystem? There, your baby can smell some flowers that use sunshine to grow, watch a bird reuse twigs for a nest, listen to ducklings peep, and touch the rough bark of a squirrel’s habitat. Babies and toddlers are naturally curious explorers—now help them discover that science is fun! In this bright, graphic board book, photos of wide-eyed little ones offset a lively running dialogue sprinkled with factual asides that define basic ecology terms.
