“As soon as he is able to keep it himself, a Nature-diary is a source of delight to a child. Every day’s walk gives him something to enter: three squirrels in a larch tree, a jay flying across a field, a caterpillar climbing up nettle, a snail eating a cabbage leaf, a spider dropping suddenly to the ground, where he found ground ivy, how it was growing and what plants were growing with it, how bindweed or ivy manages to climb.”
-Charlotte Mason Home Education pg. 54.
“An exercise book with stiff covers serves for a nature-diary, but care is necessary in choosing paper that answers both for writing and brush-drawing.” Charlotte Mason Home Education pg. 55
