The Naturals by Sharon R.C. Petersen is a children's book made up of 10 short stories about the Earth, weather and the moon and stars. You will meet Cloudy, Starry, Moony and more in this book that inspires children to care for their environment.
As a preschool teacher I am thrilled to receive this book and read it during our weather lesson and our stars and moon lesson. What a great and fun way to learn about these things and the stories are simple and fun enough to keep preschoolers attention but interesting enough to keep my 7-year-old's attention as well.
I received this book this morning and my kids wanted me to read it to them immediately. We read the whole book and they loved it! The stories are simple, fun and full of good morals. At the end of each story are discussion questions that my kids enjoyed discussing with me. The pictures are beautiful water-color type pictures on almost every page so even my 2 year-old was kept interested most of the time. My older kids, ages 7 and 5, love to learn and they said this book deserves five stars! So, I rate this book:
