What’s Wild Outside Your Door? By Peter Wohlleben

You might think cities are the last place to find nature. But nature is actually right outside your door—you just need to know where to look. From the roofs of apartments to parking lots, cities are bursting with plants and animals.

In this fascinating and interactive guide, kids will learn about how birds build their nests on bridges, where salamanders and toads hide, and how plants push through sidewalk cracks. 

Alongside these awe-inspiring facts, Peter shares engaging, science-based activities, including how to: identify animal sounds, raise a slime mold, make your own compass, collect plants to start your own herbarium, see shooting stars, and more…

This book helps equip kids in urban and suburban environments with the knowledge to engage with the natural world around them, and the confidence to go explore.

Peter also provides information on what animals thrive in cities and which could use our help, as well as tips for staying safe and having fun while embarking on a nature adventure.
