As you become an expert in all things green, Nature Girl offers fun ways to care for God's creations while enjoying the wonders of nature! With activities, recipes, science experiments, and much more, you can discover how to create recycled jewelry, plan a spa day with friends, make your own earth-friendly skin care products, or team up to clean a park or a neighbor's yard.

Each chapter covers different topics, like water, air, energy, and recycling, and includes crafts, Scripture, games, quizzes, interviews with experts, and quotes from real girls like you. From the itty-bitty flowers at your feet to the air high above your head, discover how you can make a difference for our planet.

NATURE GIRL is a book that inspired me to go into the woods near my house and pick up the trash that blew in there from people’s garbage or the people threw from their car windows. Most of the trash was metal or plastic and I read in NATURE GIRL that it takes two hundred to a million years for them to decompose.

I also liked the science experiments, recipes, quizzes, and games that are included.

I really enjoyed this book, and recommend it to other girls. I already volunteer in our community’s recycling center, and I want to encourage other tweens to get involved and “go green.” We need to save our planet for us—and for our future kids. $7.99. 179 pages. 5 stars.
