I wanted to share one of my favorite homeschool sites with you, especially since this week they are allowing FREE downloads of The Big Handbook of Nature Study by Anna Botsford Comstock. It was initially written in the early 1900s, when naturalism was well taught in schools. The pictures are in black and white, but the handbook is full of information children will delight in.
While this is a frequented homeschool website, it is by no means only for homeschoolers. This handbook would make a somewhat boring summer fun for any child!
This book is such a large pdf file, that the good people of Homeschool Freebie of the Day have divided it into six parts. If this is something you are interested in downloading, please do so before the end of the week as it will not be available afterwards.
Click here to download. Part 6 will be released tomorrow (4/13).
