Packed with all kinds of exciting outdoor activities for children and the whole family, to encourage awareness of the natural world and self-sufficiency skills – and to show how much fun it is to explore nature.

The activities include: tracking skills; wildlife spotting; foraging for wild food and cooking outdoors; how to light a fire safely (with adult supervision); stargazing, including star maps; outdoor games; nature chase; how to mimic birdsong; how to make whistles and peashooters; how to make plaster-casts of animal tracks, nature collections and art from nature finds. With full-page pictures, vignettes, captions and a glossary, this is the book you need when you go out in the park or countryside.

MICK MANNING and BRITA GRANSTRÖM have developed a unique approach to picture information books over the last 21 years. Sharing the illustration between them and mixing words and pictures in inventive ways, they have won many awards, including the Smarties Silver Award, and are five-times winners of the English Association Award. Mick fell in love with wildlife on primary school nature walks many years ago, and has an MA in Natural History Illustration from the Royal College of Art. Brita grew up on a farm, and has an MFA from Konstfack in Stockholm. They spend a lot of their time having both Swedish and British Wild Adventures with their four children. Their other books for Frances Lincoln include: The Beatles; Charles Dickens, Scenes from an Extraordinary Life; What Mr Darwin Saw; Tail-End Charlie; Taff in the WAAF; The Secrets of Stonehenge; Woolly Mammoth; and the Fly on the Wall series: Roman Fort, Viking Longship; Pharoah's Egypt; Greek Hero.
