This addition to the BBG Guides for a Green Planet series walks readers through the basics of becoming a naturalist. Divided by season, the chapters introduce a variety of ecosystems, such as the beach, woods, city, and meadow. Nature-themed activities appear alongside guides to the flora and fauna of the regions, scavenger hunts, naturalist careers, and introductions to concepts like symbiotic relationships, all of which encourage readers to observe the intricacies of the natural world. Despite the project’s New York City origins, readers from just about any geographical location will be able to find information for identifying local wildlife. Ages 8–12. (Aug.)
