Julia Rothman's Nature Anatomy Activity Book: Match-Ups, Word Puzzles, Quizzes, Mazes, Projects, Secret Codes + Lots More

Julia Rothman's Nature Anatomy Activity Book is a fun, accurate, well written, and illustrated activity book for kids by Julia Rothman. Due out 12th Sept 2023 from Hachette on their Storey imprint, it's 64 pages and will be available in paperback format. 

There are a number of different activities, and it's gratifying to see that the author has managed to make them *fun* and appealing for everyone and at the same time, basing them on actual scientific methods and observation. Kids (and facilitators) are invited to observe, count, and learn about wildlife and nature and record those observations. There are also word puzzles like scrambles and crosswords. Each page is illustrated in color. 

Five stars. Due to the nature of activity books (being written in and *used*), it's not appropriate for library acquisition. Classroom use (for which it's certainly appropriate) would require a copy for each child. This would make a great purchase for home use. 

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