Nature Anatomy!

It was exciting to get this beautiful book in the mail this week. The cover is genius. I loved it as soon as I saw it.

The author is right, it isn’t a field guide in the truest sense. But it is a lot of fun to look at, and it draws you in. The drawings are modern, and the colors are fresh and pretty. I love nature, and I am slowly growing a collection of nature books. It’s especially appealing when you can see how much the author enjoys her subject!

Sure enough! He said “Oh, I like this book. It’s a good one!”.

Then he reminded me that he had once caught a Lake Trout, and it “looked exactly like this!”.

So yes, it passed our personal “just for fun” book test.
