Shining Dawn Books – Nature Explorers

Recently Shining Dawn Books had a contest give-away and I was one of the winners!

Here’s what I picked out from the 3 prize choices I was given (with Otter’s input):

Fruits and Nuts

Fruits and Nuts is an attractive, 64 page Christian based unit study chock full of different ideas like hands-on activities, writing ideas, Bible lessons, poetry, artist and picture study references, composer and music study references, Internet links, literature suggestions, notebooking pages and more.

I’ve always thought nature studies were important, but sometimes they are hard to get around to actually doing. Having a guide like this helps make the process so much easier because you are working off of a foundation with so many things already researched and easily accessible.

Recently Otter was writing a friend a letter and wrote the following:

Our God is so Wonderful

“A couple of weeks ago I asked my mom why did God make weeds? Then we went to the wildlife refuge and I saw why God made weeds they looked so beautiful and the deer ate it. Now I know that he made everything for a reason. “

I think what he wrote really reaffirms Job 12:7-9

7 “But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you;
And the birds of the air, and they will tell you;

 8 Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you;
And the fish of the sea will explain to you.

 9 Who among all these does not know
That the hand of the LORD has done this,
