Field Guides from Silver Dolphin Books


Last year I stumbled upon a series of field guides by Silver Dolphin Books at my local Sams Club. They have turned out to be one of the best series I've bought for my kids. I haven't actually gotten ALL the books yet, but the ones we have include:

• The Field Guide to Ocean Animals by Phyllis Perry

• The Field Guide to Polar Animals by Nancy Honovich

• The Field Guide to Rain Forest Animals by Nancy Honovich

• The Field Guide to Dinosaurs by Nancy Honovich

The dinosaur puzzles show the dinosaur on one side and the skeleton on the other!
 My son LOVES these books. Each one is a grand adventure that not only teaches your child about the different species, but also comes with small 3D puzzles and a diorama for them to assemble. Each book is presented as a real field journal written by a scientist. At the beginning is a letter to the reader from the scientist describing their "expedition." The readers can then follow along with the expedition tracking the route on a map and learning about the different species.

I really love how these books engage my kids and teach not only biology, but geography, too. You can find the entire series in my online shop.

Con mucho cariño...

  1. Monica: those books are great! We are going to do the ones about Insects and I am more excited than them. I love the short text with facts and the hands-on activities.
