One gives instructions for capturing a wooly bear caterpillar for the winter so it can be watched as it changes into a moth. Another shows how to use a "cricket thermometer" to tell the temperature. The last explains how to make "moth sugar" to attract moths to observe at night.

Until summer is over and the flowers fade and the stalks fall down and the children can't fix them. But still there's something more the flowers can give when their lovely petals have fallen -- wonderful seeds for next year's house, and enough to share with the birds.; ISBN: 0152019529

Big Book of Animal Stories

Publisher: Mineola, NY.
New Dover Paperback 8vo; 208 pages; Written by a naturalist, these exciting stories show animals interacting in scientifically accurate ways as to natural enemies, type of home, foods eaten, habits, and special characteristics.

His stories give children an opportunity to observe the consequences of greed, selfishness, teasing, boasting, and other undesirable qualities as the animals interact.

The Burgess Bird Book for Children
 Picture
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company, 1920 Boston, MA.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "This book was written to supply a definite need. Its preparation was undertaken at the urgent request of booksellers and others who have felt the lack of a satisfactory medium of introduction to bird life for little children. As such, and in no sense whatever as a competitor with the many excellent books on this subject, but rather to supplement these, this volume has been written. Its primary purpose is to interest the little child in, and to make him acquainted with, those feathered friends he is most likely to see. Because there is not method of approach to the child mind equal to the story, this method of conveying information has been adopted. So far as I am aware the book is unique in this respect..It is intended to be at once a story book and an authoritative handbook..Mr. Louis Agassiz Fuertes, artist and naturalist, has marvelously supplemented such value as may like in the text by his wonderful drawings in full color. They were made especially for this volume and arte so accurate, so true to life, that study of them will enable any one to identify the species shown.." 32 full color photographic plates illustrating over 50 species. xvi + 353 pages.
