The Tuesday Review: Author Highlight - Jim Arnosky

Jim Arnosky is one of our all time favorite authors.  Over the years, we have read many of his books.  Some have been all about a favorite animal, like sharks or fish.  Others have been stories about animals based on real accounts.  His illustrations are amazing and have been studied by my boys as they have learned how to draw many different types of animals.

Our most recent Jim Arnosky book to check out was Following The Coast.  It is a beautiful book, full of fun information and inspiration to be out in nature more, observing, learning, and soaking it in!


Some of our favorites over the years have been:

The Brook Book
All About Sharks
Hook, Line, and Seeker
Wild Tracks
Dolphins on the Sand

And honestly, I could go on and on.  Of the books that we have read by Jim Arnosky, they have all been fantastic!  There are several books of his that I discovered while researching for this post that we haven't read yet.  I can't wait to see if our library has them! Whether your kids are young or getting older, or if you enjoy quality nature-based literature, then I highly recommend any book by Jim Arnosky!  See his website for details. http://www.jimarnosky.com/
