Non Fiction Review: Take Me Outdoors

Take Me Outdoors by Mary Richards

Take Me Outdoors: A Nature Journal for Young Explorers (Take Me #4)
by Mary Richards
5 out of 5 stars

This journal offers the reader the perfect journal for recording their experiences while in the great outdoors, really noticing things they encounter and the places they see. You can draw a map of your surroundings, sketch a famous garden, and record the different types of plants or animals that you see. There are little tidbits of information about famous outdoor explorers and different famous places around the world.

I loved the colorful pages full of fun activities and journal prompts! Doing these activities is really relaxing and thoughtful. It really forces you to consider a different perspective and see things in a fresh way.

I really liked all the cool illustrations and bits of history. There are little one paragraph bios about Beatrix Potter, Mary Anning, John James Audubon, and Nellie Bly. I loved reading all the factoids about insects, birds, trees, and national parks.

This would be the perfect gift for a kid going on vacation, and would encourage some quiet and reflective moments during the trip.
