Walking with Bigfoot – A Beginners Guide to Common Trees of North America
By Sharen and Mark Mellicker
This book is a short field guide of trees in North America as seen from a walk with a family of bigfoots. Each page has easily read, hand-written information on bigfoots, trees, or their fruits. The language is not “dumbed-down” for young readers, giving them the real scientific terms for classifications of leaves. A visual glossary of leaf terminology is given in the last pages of the excellent book for young naturalists/bigfooters.
The art in this field guide is of an interesting style. It seems to be a combination of paint, markers and collage. This combination makes many of the features in the art pop off of the page for the reader. It would also inspire young artists to try their hands at using these same techniques. If any original bigfoot art is created in your home using these techniques, I’d love to see it! Email a copy of it to me by clicking here!
At the publisher’s website, NatureLoverBooks.com, you can find links to bigfoot information, nature art projects and more. It’s a great resource for parents and teachers alike.
