Back To Homeschool Facebook Party – Pocket Naturalist Guide Giveaway


Let’s kick the party off with a giveaway geared toward this week’s Nature Week theme at The Homeschool Scientist. I LOVE these folding, laminated Pocket Naturalist Field Guides from Nature’s Workshop Plus. (They, also, have activity books to go along with them, but I haven’t tried them out…yet!)


I bought a couple a while back at their booth at our local homeschool convention. They are lightweight so they are so much better for  stowing in a backpack on the trail. Since these are laminated, if they get wet or dirty, just wipe them off. No harm done!

Nature’s Workshop Plus is The Homeschool Scientist’s recommended vendor for dissection specimens and lab supplies. The quality of their dissection specimens is simply superior to others I have used. 

Enter to win either a Butterflies and Moths Pocket Guide or an Animal Tracks guide by following the Rafflecopter instructions. Thanks for partying with us!

    We do not own any nature guide books, yet. We are planning on starting to purchase them for this homeschool year, though :)

      Oops should have clicked the button above. Yes, we have quite a few Peterson Guides and a bookshelf full of nature books. I add to collection by visiting library book sales.

    We own several but I’m in the market for some more good ones that are easy to use for my little guys… preschool and early elementary.

    We were gifted several old copies of Golden nature guides that have really helped us to identify what we find on our nature walks!

    We live in Florida, and there is a great series called “Florida’s Fabulous…” that is really handy for regional flora and fauna, but it’s not really the type of thing you take with you on a hike :-).

    We have several from Audobon. They’ve been very helpful when Identifying trees and bushes.

    I posted this before but I guess I did it in the wrong spot so I will post here as well. We have never used nature guidebooks. We would LOVE to though.
