Living Nature Books


I have a huge weakness for old children’s books (and have a large collection), especial old nature stories. As I have already confessed when I was younger I thought science and nature was boring (shock). But I think it is because I am not a fact girland a lot of science books are just facts. When I found through Charlotte Mason about living literature and books about nature set in story-form, I was quite excited. We have found this is a much more engaging way to learn about the world around us and then that sparked an interest in science. With that interest sparked we have then turned to learning more. I am big lover of "Instructor Literature" series booklets and was very excited to find these online. These are small booklets, so easy to print up. They are PDF files. I think it is pretty special to be able to have these booklets. They are hard to find and then pretty expensive. These are geared to younger childern but I enjoy them.

Thank you for the great link.


I really like these Clarice! I only wish I had some Littles to teach to read. I'd use these!

Gosh, Clarice, you find the neatest stuff! I'm glad you do the hunting for us and then share what you find. I want to print these, too!



I absolutely love these books! I'm so glad you left a link to download them. I plan to make copies of each and everyone on some nice paper. I really love the illustrations in these. Thanks!
