Take this Book for a Walk is a step-by-step guide to nature journaling, written in a friendly, simple style for kids and adults. It includes 33 nature journaling activities and many samples of my own nature journals for encouragement and inspiration. Take this Book for a Walk is designed for you to draw and write directly into the book to create your own unique nature journal. This is why – initially – I did not publish an ebook version of this book. What was the point of having an ebook, if the whole reason for the book was to take a printed copy on a walk, and draw and write in it?
But thanks to correspondence by readers, I now realise that many people would like an ebook version, and one reason is that the cost of shipping the print book from Australia is high – often higher than the book itself. I am based in Australia, and I print the book locally in Australia on recycled paper. I do this for environmental and ethical reasons. But I have received lots of interest about Take this Book for a Walk from around the world (thankyou!), and not everyone can afford international shipping costs. So now I present to you the ebook of Take this Book for a Walk. I hope you enjoy it, and it helps you on your journey.
Take this Book for a Walk and discover your own personal response to nature.
The journey begins with nature, a pencil, a page and you. But so many treasures await!
Slow down and observe nature, and feel yourself becoming calmer and more connected to place.
Think analytically to explore how nature works, and fire up your curiosity to learn more.
Use your imagination to view the world from a bug’s perspective, to dream up stories, and to reflect on your own memories.
Explore your creativity by using colours, shapes and lines to respond to what you see and hear.
A nature journal is your conversation with nature. Enjoy!
