The Wild Outside

Rachel Ip

This beautifully illustrated book encourages children to stop, notice, name and celebrate the nature that can be found in their surroundings – and beyond.

Tulip loves being outside. She loves puddles and pinecones, flowers and feathers, and her pockets are full of nature’s treasure. But Tulip is desperate to know more about the things she sees and finds on her daily walk …

“What is this fruit… this plant… this seed?”
“What is this tree… this leaf… this reed?”

So, when Tulip finds a nature trail drawn in chalk on the street outside her house, she is delighted to discover the names and uses of all her favourite trees, plants, and flowers. Then one day, she comes home to find a carefully wrapped present waiting on her doorstep … A book of nature from around the world.

Every day, Tulip learns more and more about nature, but who is creating the nature trail?
