Look outside. What do you see? Are there birds in the trees or bugs crawling around? What can you discover about these creatures by watching them? With The Outdoor Scientist, you’ll learn to make scientific observations about the natural world. The book comes with fun facts about plants, animals, and insects, as well as interactive projects that you can do with friends and family.

Temple Grandin is the book’s author. She’s also an inventor and a scientist. “When I was a child, I grew up looking at bugs and leaves,” she told TFK. Grandin encourages readers to explore the world around them. “Kids today need to get outside and just observe nature,” she says. “Observation is an important part of science.”
