Kids are born nature detectives, and the backyard explorer kit brings the joy and adventure of discovery to what kids do naturally. Comprising the Tree & Leaf Guide, a Leaf Collecting Album, and a see-through heavy plastic collecting envelope, it's the young naturalist's complete tree primer. The fully illustrated Tree & Leaf Guide shows examples of all the major leaf and needle shapes, and lists the common trees they match up with. It explains how to press leaves and mount them in the Leaf Collecting Album. With leaf and tree projects for all year round, the backyard explorer kit is a wonderful introduction to the yard, the park, or the woods.
