So what is this book? It is an incredibly awesome collection of season-specific nature study activities. In 100 units, you will have enough to last you for years of study. It's beautifully illustrated and we've added updated images and references. Here is an explanation from the introduction of the book which gives you the perspective of Partridge in creating the book:

"The teacher must be prepared to discard the time-worn beliefs that learning must take place with­in the four walls of a classroom, that book facts have some mystically increased value over first-hand experiences with nature, that there is some uniform body of knowledge of natural phenomena that should become the heritage of all, or that pupils must be taught by question and answer, by blackboard summaries, or even by the teacher. Let us go forth with our pupils 'into the child's natural laboratory' where, together, we may find 'the birds and insects of the air, the living animals of field and wood, the trees and flowers and shrubs, the water and the earth,' the sun and other stars— 'things which will attract and hold the child's eye, arouse his wonder, stimulate his inquiries, and give him opportunities for discovery.' In these places let nature answer the constant flow of questions that spring up in the minds of curious youth. Let us concede that though we be teachers, we must still be learners and can share the joy of discovery with our pupils."

This book will surely become a favorite resource on your homeschooling bookshelf (or if you are like me, bookshelves).
