Excerpt from Exploring Nature With Your Child: An Introduction to the Enjoyment and Understanding of Nature

Just as your child is a natural explorer, you are a natural guide. You help him find security and a sense of direction in the broad and bewildering world that men have made; so, too, you can guide him along nature's ways - and give him a happy outlet and satisfaction for his natural curiosity and exuberance.

You can be a fellow explorer, too, enriching your own life as well as your child's. As you look back on your own early years, you may recall the first time you noticed a bud opening into a flower, a bird building its nest, two colonies of ants battling each other. You may remember that such intimate glimpses of nature gave you a real thrill. Now, as a parent, you can find still more pleasure in learning about the ways of animals and the wonders of plants as you share your observing with your child. No need to go on a safari through Central Africa - delightful discoveries await you in your own back yard, in city parks and suburban gardens, along forest trails where you may hike, and by the side of lakes and streams or the ocean where you may vacation.

There is no end to the wealth of experiences nature holds in store for you and your child. In a park you can see squirrels bury ing nuts, providing for lean times in a season of plenty. You may observe a flock of wild ducks landing on a park lake for a stop over in their long flight from summer oto Winter homes. Bees, butterflies, and ants have strange and wonderful ways that you and your child can watch with fascination for hours.

The diversion nature offers you is more exciting than any invented by man, yet it is close at hand and costs you nothing. In many suburbs you may look out of the window in the morning and see a woodchuck nibbling its breakfast in a dewy field, or a rabbit scampering across the lawn, purposefully headed for the vegetable garden. You may watch spiders spinning silken traps, or see an exciting tug-of-war between a robin and an earthworm. In woodlands and meadows, in zoos and museums, there is even more for you to observe. No television, radio, or motion picture producer could invest in his productions the millions of years that nature has spent in preparing these thrilling spectacles for you.
