5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book giving environmental activites for children
I first picked up 'Earthwise' by Carol Petrash when visitng a friend, and after browsing through it, decided this book is a 'must have'.
Divided into Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer, the book guides you through various crafts and activites appropriate to the season. All are related in some way to the world in which we live, and aim to increase childrens' awareness...

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new
I purchased this book hoping to find some inspirational environmental ideas to use with my Reception class. Unfortunately most of the activities are old hat and will not be new to any Early Years teachers.

By A Customer
This review is from: Earthwise: Environmental Crafts and Activities with Young Children (Paperback)
I first picked up 'Earthwise' by Carol Petrash when visitng a friend, and after browsing through it, decided this book is a 'must have'.
Divided into Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer, the book guides you through various crafts and activites appropriate to the season. All are related in some way to the world in which we live, and aim to increase childrens' awareness of their natural environment. Ideas range from building a tepee, to cooking, drawing and painting. I particularly liked the gift section for Christmas, and the ideas for using apples during Autumn - particularly helpful if you have a glut of apples from a tree in your garden! Each activity is graded by age - many being suitable for children from 2 years of age. You are given a full list of everything you need and detailed instructions, and there are charming line drawings to illustrate to process.
I would recommend this book to any parent of pre-school or primary age children, and also to play group leaders and teachers as a valuable resource to enhance the learning experience of children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for young children, 15 Feb. 2009

This review is from: Earthwise: Environmental Crafts and Activities with Young Children (Paperback)
This is a great resource book for young kids for some simple projects. Lots of ideas for all seasons. I would say the projects are suitable for up to 6 yr olds. Kids older than this may want something a little more substantial.

A lovely book full of wonderful ideas involving the great outdoors and natural materials.
