Preschool Nature Book Basics: Letters, Shapes, & Colors

These are my very favorite nature books that focus on letters, shapes, and colors. Because they center around traditional, developmentally age-appropriate preschooler topics, these books make welcome additions to most kidlet libraries (even in those families & schools where nature is not considered a high priority.)














Letters:
ABC's Naturally
Discovering Nature's Alphabet
Waldorf Alphabet Book
Wildflower ABC

Shapes:
Star in my Orange (Looking for Nature's Shapes)
Looking at Nature: What Shape is it?

Colors:
What Color is Nature?
Planting a Rainbow
Growing Colors

Ooh, I wouldn't mind a copy of the Wildflower ABC for myself!

I just found your blog via Skunkboy Creatures - I liked the comment you made about shorts being "failed pants" - made me giggle!

@ michelle: abc's naturally is my favorite, too! the photos are so amazing you could actually cut them out, frame them, and use them as wall decor.

@ debbie; thanks! that's such a supersweet thing to say.

@ bendingbirches: oh, i looove waldorf! the emphasis on nature, music, and storytelling is really special, and important i think, too.

@eleni: i'm glad i made you giggle ;) and i totally agree, the wildflower abc book is incredible. the potato is not only tasty when covered with butter and cheese... it's an art tool, too!
