Outdoors in June with Poppins Book Nook

Its another month (I am a bit late in joining now, yes! please forgive me) I have really been looking forward to this one too as we have spent so much time outside. Between our sowing and tending our garden; landscaping projects, and just fun times (think bubbles, chalk, kite flying, boating and nature hikes…)  there is always lots of fun to be had in these warmer days!

Ultimately this summer has been all about bugs for us! heh All three of my children love bugs. They are so curious – what are they? What are they for? How do they eat? What do they eat? So it made sense when we stumbled across, at a book sale:  bugs


What a fun book. A way for curious kids to meet fuzzy, prickly, , slimy caterpillars in a rainbow of colors. They can see giant water bug babies hatching from  their eggs and tiny praying mantis nymphs swarming about on leaves. The  photographs are amazing, showing these little bug babies in all their glory, as they squirm and hop, sting and bite (ouch!), and munch their way to adulthood. The text is so simple, engaging littler ones in the lives and ways of baby bugs of all kinds, fascinating all fans and even making my older son intrigued by the various creepy, crawly bugs out there!
