An Autumnal Gem50 Things to Try in Autumn couldn’t be a more exciting title for me – I adore Autumn. The book is A5 in size with a gloss cover that is great for outdoor adventures in case you get a little unpredictable weather. It has a little orange elastic string to mark your page or hold any treasures you may have collected inside with a little fold over flap in the back to keep your most coveted treasures. In my experience, these make your journal extra special! There are a plethora (well 50 😉) ideas to try in Autumn ranging from all sorts of indoor and outdoor pursuits.
Recommended age is from 6+ and I’d say this is an ideal age and would be good for further into primary for independent adventures and journaling. My daughter is nearly 5 and she’s very much into mark making and attempting to write words right now so I think this will be a book that we’ll enjoy together.
There are other titles in this little series of Adventure Journals. A Winter edition is due for release in October too. There’s a very subtle word in the title that I believe children will find very enticing and that’s the word ‘try’. It’s not a book telling you to ‘do’ something, a concept that can make some of our little ones feel a little unsure and intimidated. ‘Try’ is more of an invitation - have a go - dip in and out as you please and find the ideas to try that appeal to you. A great way to develop a #GrowthMindset. If you’re looking for a dreamy little activity book this Autumn then I would highly recommend this one.
Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy of this book for review. All opinions are my own.
