This book is packed full of fun nature activities that will help children engage with the season and learn practical new skills. The authors present a mix of indoor and outdoor activities for autumn, including picking and cooking fruit, basket-making, building houses and shelters, looking after birds, working with beeswax and making paper.

The activities in this book are based on practical experience from the Children's Nature and Garden Centre in Reichshof, and are fully tried and tested.
