Great book! I love the way this book invites the reader to be citizen scientist too. There are facts about butterflies, frogs, birds, and ladybugs. There is a lot of information in this book yet it doesn't feel overwhelming. I loved all of the photography as well. I would absolutely read this book a chapter a day in a classroom setting to peak their interest in science throughout the lesson. ( )

This is an informational text that explains what science is and that you can find science anywhere, including your own backyard! What I loved about this book was each of the four chapters described a different science experiment that students can participate in. This gets children more involved and excited about science and participating in experiments. I can definitely use this in my classroom because it integrates science and English. I could take the chapters and make a lesson from each chapter of this book. We can even do the experiments that this book provided. It is an excellent teacher source for a science classroom. I absolutely enjoyed science when I was in middle and high school and I wish I can do more science experiments in college because I just enjoy them so much. This is an excellent teacher tool for a science lesson! ( )

The pictures in this book are engaging and show the excitement and enthusiasm involved in being a parts of bigger projects of scientific journey. This book is awesome and gets anyone pumped about being a part of science and the bigger picture. This book is great for a science unit and also to show that anyone is capable to contribute important thing to the world around them and the animals and insects we share it with.

A book that offers an animal observation activity for each season of the year, and is probably applicable in the majority of U.S. climate zones. Fall is for butterfly catching, winter for bird watching, spring for frog catching, and summer for ladybugs. Lots of information about catching and observing each of these species, and about the reasons for doing so.
