Our Favorite Nature Themed Picture Books

We incorporate nature into our homeschooling in so many ways!

We go hiking most every week.  We visit aquariums, zoos, and nature centers. We've raised butterflies, hatched ladybugs from larvae, watched tadpoles turn into frogs, and even resuscitated a dehydrated hummingbird we found in our garage.

We've taken classes at our nature center to learn about clamming, fishing, nature journaling and more.  We once went out on an ocean research vessel and learned all about the ocean animals in our region.  We've taken classes through our local zoos over the years learning about habitat, animal adaptations, and more.

But one of our favorite ways to learn all about nature is to read.  Even though my kids are all in middle and high school we sill read lots and lots of wonderful picture books.  I look for books with beautiful illustrations and moving stories.

You can read the rest of this post at the 30 Days 30 Ways Blog Party where 29 other bloggers and myself teamed up with Kimberli at Mommy N Me Inc for a whole months worth of inspirational blog posts about including nature in our homeschools.
