Nature study in a nutshell!
“Whether you live in the country or a high-rise apartment, it will encourage you to find evidence of God’s creation wherever you are. Smith and Shafer clearly present the why, how, what, and when of studying God’s world and entice the reader to get up from his desk to explore outside.”
“I love this book. I love the format, the writing style, the wide margins with room for notes—I just love it all. If you have been wanting to spend more ‘hours in the out of doors’ with your kids, I highly encourage you to pick up this book. You won’t be disappointed.”
