Wild Child: A Journey Through Nature is a beautiful gift book, illustrated in full colour by Barry Falls, and divided into five chapters: looking out of the window, venturing out into the garden, walking in the woods, investigating heathland and wandering on the river bank. Dara pauses to tell you about each habitat and provides fantastic facts about the native birds, animals and plants you will find there - including wrens, blackbirds, butterflies, tadpoles, bluebells, bees, hen harriers, otters, dandelions, oak trees and many, many more.

Each chapter contains a discovery section where you will get a closer look at natural phenomena such as metamorphoses and migration, learn about categorization in the animal kingdom or become an expert on the collective nouns for birds. Every chapter ends with an activity to do when you get home - you will be shown how to make a bird feeder, try pond dipping, make a journey stick and build a terrarium and more. Dara closes the book with his own inspirational advice for young conservationists.

This is the perfect guide for an aspiring naturalist.
