Letters to Nature Kids

In these short publications, I write directly to kids, in the form of a letter. We don’t send letters so much any more, but a good letter can feel like part of a long-distance conversation, informal and personal. Readers might be ten years old, or in their teens, or maybe adults who enjoy reading a little informal letter about something or somewhere in nature. I don’t get very in-depth – the idea is for it to feel informal but also include interesting stuff about anything from wasps to turtles to trees.

The pdf-format letters will be free, though I note in the fine print that if you want to make some small donation to help keep the walks and road trips going, I will certainly be grateful. You can donate through PayPal.
