Niko Tinbergen. Curious Naturalists
A fantastic book written by Nobel prize winner Niko Tinbergen. I recommend this book for adults and advanced children alike. I read this when I was in 6th grade and it was the book that lead me on my path to a career in neuroethology.
Tinbergen opens us up to the natural world around us even to those of us who are city dwellers.
Exposing us up to both the world of nature and the methodology of the naturalist he reveals something that the modern day world more and more distracts us from - patient observation and the results that it yields.
I recommended this book to a close friend of mine who has two children, a two year old and kindergartner and he uses this book as a manuel in their nature hikes. I assure you you will not be disappointed if you purchase this book.
