Review of "Discovering Nature’s Alphabets," by Krystina Castella and Brian Boyl

Review of

Discovering Nature’s Alphabets, by Krystina Castella and Brian Boyl ISBN 159714021x

Five out of five stars

 This book is a primer on what is a great hiking game, looking for the letters of the Latin alphabet in natural formations. The letters can be made from rocks, trees, animals, sticks or anything else one could see while hiking a nature trail.

 At least one image of every letter in the alphabet appears in the book. While all are clear to see, there are some that require a little bit of imagination to discern. After reading this book, I spent a few minutes looking out the window at the trees budding out for the Spring. I found a few letters, it is necessary to keep your imagination in check a little bit, for it is easy to be a little too creative in spotting patterns when they are only hinted.

 A great primer for a scout hike or any other excursion in the wild, this book is a great way to prepare before you take your first steps.
