Yesterday I walked into a vacant store filled with $1 used books... I found so many treasures! And bonus- the proceeds of the sale are going to a scholarship for girls!

I've been long obsessed with children's books and love this one because I am struggling to keep screen time to a minimum with my toddler while I'm juggling life now with two kids.  This well timed children's book speaks to the technology vs nature dilemma parents are facing in a beautiful way. Particularly love how the illustrator depicts the piercing rays of light and angles/perspectives from the snails and organisms in the dirt below! #bookrecommendation #childrensbooks #naturebooks #childrensnaturebooks #lessgaming #morenature #kidsinnature #childrensillustration #onamagicaldonothingday #beatricealemagna #booklover #bookworm

Enjoying every minute of reading Natural World, a visual compendium, with the kids. Filled with facts and beautifully illustrated by @owendaveydraws - picked it up during the summer and still note done (a new first).

I blame @mamajessenia for this purchase! She posted a giveaway of a similar book because she had two copies. I didn't win so I went searching Amazon for my own copy. It's a different edition from hers but it's a great resource!

It’s almost embarrassing how many books I’ve purchased in the last two weeks. However, we’ve also newly acquired this gorgeous glass bookcase so it all evens out. Right? 🙄 .

This book! It is a wonderful resource for sharpening your observation skills, for nurturing curiosity and wonder, for deepening understanding of nature's rhythms, and for developing a phenology record to look back on in years to come. It's a must have for any nature lover of any age. And the journaling section is in a grid/calendar format which many find less intimidating.
My young naturalist all want their own copy. 😉📚💚

Looking out my window tonight, I see all the autumnal leaves which have been whipped up by the storm. It #mademethink of how beautiful and terrible nature can be. We think of The Wizard of Oz and many more as examples of how we use the natural forces as #imaginationinspiration Stay safe and enjoy this bizarre weather we are having! #naturephotography #naturebooks #autumncolours #autumn
Overnight temperatures are getting close to freezing which means chilly mornings. Time to put my favourite slippers on, make a homemade chai tea soy latte and read a good book. 🍂📚#autumn🍁

The cover of Trees by Lemniscates pulled me in, and the illustrations throughout are bright, colorful, and beautiful.  Trees has simple, poetic text that is brought to life by the illustrations.  I enjoyed reading her book to my daughter, who was able to make connections and liked that it read like a picture book even though it gave some factual information. .
.
. I was intrigued that the illustrator and author simply had one name, Lemniscates, which is what you call a sideways eight, or an infinity sign.  After looking over her webpage, I learned that Carme's named her studio this after a session with children in which they were drawing the "sleeping eights".
.
.
. Carme has illustrated and written numerous other books, but I am eager to read Silence, which encourages the reader to stop and listen to the world around them.  She has another book that she illustrated coming out in February called I am a Warrior Goddess by Jennifer Adams @writerjenadams which is about a young girl who sets out to make a big impact through small actions.  It sounds like a motivational book to young girls and I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy. .

Day 14 of the @bookriot Bookstagram Challenge: Books in Nature. We wish we were in the Catskills soaking up that beautiful #foliage today, but reading the lyrical nature writing book THE QUARRY FOX by Catskills naturalist Leslie T. Sharpe is the next best thing! And how nice is it to see bird boxes in the park?! 🍁🦊🦌🐿🍂

This is why I need a wingman around #naturebooks, especially #vintage nature books! Please tell me gently that the bears in this book won't be recycled right now but imminently loved by some rare child. And that sea otters will survive our changing waters! That poor Freddie the Leaf, A Story of Life for All Ages, won't rot on a shelf, but in the ground after being read many more times! Ahhhhh I really have zero spine! I only bought a book on #trout though. So I felt like I made out strong.  #likeachamp .

Two things I am really enjoying this morning: This book that I highly recommend to all my bird-lover friends. It's an entertaining read. 🐦🤓
And listening to this program - Bernd Heinrich and Nathaniel Wheelwright on Maine Calling talking about their new book that encourages people of all ages to deepen their connection with nature by keeping a naturalist's notebook. I am saving my pennies to get this book! 💚📚

I was so happy to find some recommended books at the library today! Thanks @natureloversau for your awesome nature book list! And @intentionalhomeschooling for the Shel Silverstein recommendation, my boy will love these quirky poems. I also found 'How to Raise a Wild Child' for meeee. 🌲🌸

I needed a break from city life so I went for a nature walk. I really missed being around so much green and brown 🍂 But in the middle of such a busy city, I was shocked by how empty the park was. Anyone else tired of living in a concrete jungle 🙋🏼 ?
🍂
On the downside though a mosquito bit the palm of my hand?!

Pictured is the book “Trees of North America” by C. Frank Brockman. ......................................................................

You know you are a bird nerd when you run outside in your jammies to get a photo of a migrating warbler and pretty much clean out the bird section of the library book sale. 🤓🐦This nature nerd mom brought home a decent book haul too. 😉📚

As many of you know, I'm a HUGE fan of Henry David Thoreau.  His masterpiece Walden changed my life in a way that no book ever has, or probably ever will!  So I was so fortunate to be able to attend Thoreau's exhibit at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York City this fall, "This Ever New Self: Thoreau and His Journal." The exhibit sadly ended last month, but I was able to see it in its final days.  It was incredible for me to see parts of Thoreau's world, his actual journals, his desk, his favorite books.  The Morgan Library & Museum did an incredible job bringing him and his work to life!
✨✨✨
As much as I am a fan of Thoreau, I am also a huge fan of journal writing.  I believe in its incredible power and magic as a way to connect with our Higher Self and the Universe.  This type of writing was pivotal for Thoreau.  It was the way he extracted his ideas of nature, God and the Universe that shaped our culture and the Transcendentalist spiritual movement (which by the way led to social change, the end of Slavery and the Civil War). Apart from his moments in nature, journal writing was how Thoreau entered into his own conversation with the Universe.  He began this lifelong practice in 1837 at the age of twenty and continued until just a few months before his death at the age of forty-four.  He filled nearly fifty notebooks.  His journal writing also led him to the penning of his masterpiece Walden.  I took photos at the exhibit and will share some of my favorite excepts written on the walls and some of his belongings.
✨✨✨
This year marks the 200th year since Thoreau's birth so Thoreauvians all around the world are celebrating.  Cheers to this brilliant, brilliant man who continues to inspire me and so many others with his courage, bold ideas and reverence for nature!💚🙌🍃
✨✨✨
In this post I've included this amazing quote (painted on the wall from his journals), his actual journals, and his writing desk.  I will share more quotes and relics in my coming posts.

Been saving this one up for a while. Nothing can remedy a gloomy mood or a bad day like coming home to a beloved pet. This boy's happiness is almost beyond belief when he sees you, and it melts the heart. No wonder children's literature and love for animals are so closely linked. Authors have a responsibility to consider the moral direction of their stories. What's that famous  quote? “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” – Gandhi

Maybe a bit deep, but it is Monday! Have a great week.

Everyone knows that when you're going on a hike you need water, good shoes, and a Maurice Pledger book to appreciate the wildlife around you! Our new lift-and-learn book is full of fun forest animal facts and gorgeous illustrations - the perfect nature companion.

This is a great example of why I've been building our collection of educational books. The kids thought this was a frog so we pulled out our Nature Anatomy book to figure it out. Definitely a toad! The kids also had fun finding earthworms, poking them and then running away giggling.

🍁Oh October how I do love thee. It's a slow and cozy one in this house today, tea fairy lights and the smell of spiced pumpkin. The little book on the chair is one of my favourite antique book finds. It has little leaves glued throughout and an inscription which you can see in the second picture (if you zoom in) which reads 🍂" Bought 18/03/1984 in Lavenham, with all my love darling, Roger "🍂I wonder if they are little momentos from walks they took together or dates they went on?!🍁

🍁Oh October how I do love thee. It's a slow and cozy one in this house today, tea fairy lights and the smell of spiced pumpkin. The little book on the chair is one of my favourite antique book finds. It has little leaves glued throughout and an inscription which you can see in the second picture (if you zoom in) which reads 🍂" Bought 18/03/1984 in Lavenham, with all my love darling, Roger "🍂I wonder if they are little momentos from walks they took together or dates they went on?!🍁 . . . . . . . . . . #october  #bookstagram  #instabooks  #antiques  #antiquebooks  #bookish  #booknerd  #magical  #the_enchanted_fable  #enchanting  #autumn  #nature  #naturephotography  #slowliving  #vintage  #vintagetreasures  #curated_nature  #naturelovers  #magical  #cozyhome  #cozy  #naturebooks  #bibliophile  #loveautumn  #wherecalmlives

Loving this new edition to my guide books. Highly recommend it for anyone that wants to learn more about native bees and the plants that support them.

Friday 6th September:
We attended a sweet animal drawing event with Yuval Zommer. He's the author and illustrator of a number of lovely, simple nature books.

"I often think about the cottonwood at the river's edge, and similar moments of inexplicable wonder, times when I received from nature just what I needed: an elusive 'it' for which I have no name." - "The Nature Principle" by Richard Louv. 🍃
I found this book at the library, and it's lovely so far. I put a link to the book in my profile. I hope you're all enjoying your weekend!

Brought some plant guides on my walk today.  I have a huge collection of plant books, yet I had none for the area that my walk concluded in: the marsh! •

Even if your partner insists it's only a motel, be sure to stop at the Unconventional Moose. So many interesting gift ideas await in the shop. Hint - moccasins are on sale this weekend. Hwy 7 at the Skootamatta River.

I've been reading more graphic novels and comics books lately, since it's faster and quicker to read. Also the art style is so nice :)) I've started "Spinning" by Tillie Walden and it's pretty good so far✨✨

Cephalopods are amazing!!! Reading about how cuttlefish change color in Other Minds: the octopus, the sea, and the deep origins of consciousness by Peter Godfrey-Smith. So glad I bought this book. #librarian #librarianreads #librarianstagram #librarystagram #bookstagram #cephalopods #octopuses #octopustagram #itsoctopusesnotoctopi #cuttlefish #books #nonfiction #sciencebooks #naturebooks #sciencebookstagram #naturebookstagram

Nature books always look so pretty. (I miss compiling the books page at my old job.)
