My Nature Journal and Activity Book (A Girl's Guide to the Wild)

My Nature Journal and Activity Book is an illustrated beginner's guide to nature journaling. Released 7th April 2020 by Sasquatch Books on their Little Bigfoot imprint, it's 208 pages and available in diary format (as a physical book, no ebook format as far as I can see).

For journalers who are intimidated by a blank page staring at them, this is a perfect start. The book has pages and pages of gentle writing prompts: where I explored, what I saw, what I took with me, how I felt, three words that describe my day.  Interspersed between the writing exercises are really useful informational pages full of nature tutorials with lists of equipment and useful tools, weather essentials, and safety tips.

The illustrations are attractive and calming and the writing is clear and accessible. This would make a superlative gift for a young writer (really all ages, but mostly slanted to girls or young women in my opinion). Four and a half stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
