She also has a post on children's books about John James Audubon.
I like her parting shot on the Audubon post:
Grab your binoculars and a sketch pad and spend a few quiet minutes enjoying the birds in your area.
(But, then, I'm the sort of person who thinks that sketch pads can be the perfect gift for a child. Or a grown-up, for that matter. And I like birding...)
If you don't mind sharing, which gardening or nature-related books have you found helpful or inspiring?
