Beyond the front door is a world of fun and fascination, as this children’s book by sisters Jane Drake and Ann Love so aptly demonstrates.

Suggestions for outdoor games, other activities and nature projects, and facts and stories about nature have been compiled in this handy book which also includes easy-to-follow directions, specific beach activities and a few indoor pastimes for inclement weather. Selected activities consist of both the traditional (such as marble games) and the new (such as making a worm farm), and all are inexpensive, fun and uncomplicated.

While most of the activities are best for the summer months, some are winter pastimes, and a simple star-watching guide is provided for each season.
With these nifty suggestions for outdoor pursuits, kids will have few reasons to be glued to a screen inside the house this summer!

Jane Drake and Ann Love, who live in the Toronto area, have written a number of children’s books which are available at the library, including The Kids Campfire Book and The Kids Book of the Night Sky.
