Morning Nature Study

I recently listed to another great podcast over at Read Aloud Revival, all about nature study. What an inspiration. If you can take the time to listen, I suggest you do! It might fuel you with an abundant of inspiration as well. The big take away for me from the podcast was the use of living books for nature study.

I’m already a fan of living books and have a virtual book shelf full of them, but I’ve not been putting them to use like I could. Then I remembered when I wrote about the Slow Loop that Morning Time Nature Study is a perfect time to work those long beautiful books in. And use literature, like the above the podcast talks about, as some of those nature study readings all well.

This doesn’t mean we don’t get outside and study nature in person. It also doesn’t mean we don’t utilize other sources like movies or television shows. We will just do that at a different part of the day.

Here are a list of the books we have on our current reading list for our Morning Slow Loop.

Because we travel and shelf space is limited most of these books live on my kindle. We are currently reading Bear Brownie and it’s delightful to even hear Macaroons narrations from the readings. If shelf space wasn’t limited I would so very much rather have an illustrated copy of the book.
