The Best Forest Books for Kids
This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
Nature study is a big part of our homeschooling days. We enjoy getting outside and try to never miss an opportunity for an impromptu science lesson when something interesting crosses our path–like a colorful insect, a nest full of eggs, or a gigantic spider web. Our backyard chickens are always up to something fun, and the changes in the forest surrounding our home are full of possibilities for further study. Whether or not you live near a forest, sharing forest books with your kids is a great way to discover more about these magical places.
This week, we are sharing our favorite forest books for kids, and we have a fun printable pack for you with a library checklist, nature study writing prompts, and fun forest themed notebook page. Simply scroll down to download your free printables. The writing prompts offer a fun way to combine nature study with your language arts lessons. Go ahead and enjoy a little outside time in your day!
