paperback, 192 pages

The Magic of Exploring the Outdoors After Dark

Learn how to call for owls, walk like a fox and expand your sensory perceptions. Wild Nights Out is a wonderful new hands-on guide for those who wish to take kids (of all ages) outdoors for fun, thrilling nighttime nature adventures.

The cover did look good but I found this book a disappointment. I was expecting a book on nature at night in the way of facts, information, and stories to said subject. Didn’t happen. The 192 pages were uninteresting. Many suggested games needed participants as would a group or class. There was mythology galore in Chapter 5, Learning the Night Sky, and I don’t care to know about this tradition/ belief.

The book’s description states that there are black-and-white illustrations throughout; however, there is a one page illustration before each chapter making only 7 illustration in the entire book.

This title aside, I would still be interested in the many titles offered by Chelsea Green Publishing. “Since 1984, Chelsea Green has been the leading publisher of books about organic farming, gardening, homesteading, integrative health, natural building, sustainable living, socially responsible business, and more. Now employee-owned.”

Chelsea Green Publishing provided a copy of Wild Nights Out to help facilitate the writing of an honest review. A positive review is not guaranteed, and all opinions are my own. No other compensation was received.
