The ideas for NATURE MONTH-BY-MONTH came from the activities and pastimes that I have always enjoyed throughout the year. From cooking to craft activities to walking in the countryside to swimming in the river to looking after my pets, I have drawn on things I have loved doing ever since I was a child. I also had a lot of fun researching the huge variety of wildlife you can spot throughout the UK. Whatever the weather, nature inspires me all year round! I have updated the book for 2020 with some new activities and extra bits of information about what is going on in nature, month-by-month.
