About the Book

A practical guide for kids aged 7-11, by popular Really Wild Show presenter Nick Baker, full of exciting things to see and do pretty much everywhere.

The habitat explorers are a series of four books containing numerous step-by-step projects to lead the curious young naturalist off down a path of exploration. These guides are not simply a tick list of things you can see (though they teach all those basic identification skills): rather they encourage kids to see what's around them by getting their hands dirty. And because they're so straightforward and safe to use, parents can feel confident in helping their kids to explore the wildlife around.

Perfect for half terms and long summer holidays, whether you're in the back garden or on a family day out.

In Gardens and Parks, Nick focuses on projects you can do close to home, wherever you live. Learn how to make beetle and lacewing boxes, what you can spot after dark in your garden, what materials birds like to build their nests with, and even how you can race slugs and snails!

Praise for The New Amateur Naturalist

“Wax-jacketed TV prodigy Baker continues his climb to stardom with this entirely excellent guide to DIY nature-spotting. And Baker is the real deal – worth reading and watching because he genuinely knows what he's talking about … Fun for all the family as well as being both educational and entertaining” FOCUS magazine

BBC Wildlife Book of the Month
“Quite simply, this is a superb compendium and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to naturalists of all ages and abilities who want to learn something new.” BBC Wildlife
