Book Nook: Look See the Farm

I recently had a chance to review Look, See the Farm! This book is a beautifully illustrated children's book that aims to help connect children with nature. In the book, two sisters visit their grandparents' organic farm throughout the year, discovering creatures on the farm (wild and domestic) and the changing of seasons. It's a gorgeous book, and makes a good educational introduction to a variety of creatures. The illustrations are beautiful and can lead to a lot of parent-child interaction with younger kids.

This book, along with Look, See the Bird, makes a great addition to the library of any parent looking for a way to encourage their kids to be more observant about the natural world around them.
