Exploring Nature: A guidebook on activity based nature study [2.5 MB]
Nikhil Mohan Pattnaik and Puspashree Pattnaik
This book presents a series of simple activities relating to the living nature around us. The activities chosen are interesting in themselves. When taken up as such, these activities should help in developing a habit for looking closely at things around and to bring about an appreciation for natural objects and processes. At the same time, enough background has been included to link the activities to broader concepts of science, particularly to that of biology and ecology.

A Guide to the Night Sky [228 KB]
P. N. Shankar
The star studded night sky is fascinating enough, but if one observes it daily for a period of time, one notices the patterns (constellations) and the diurnal movement of the stars. Observing the night sky through out the year will show that the sky changes with every passing day. With increased familiarity, one begins to spot prominent stars and constellations. This book is a guide to the identification of stars, the major constellations and the brighter planets. The charts and maps given here have been specially prepared to make it easy for the beginner.

How to Tell the Birds from the Flowers [243 KB]
Robert Williams Woods
This is a book of humour masquerading as a nature book. The special thing about it is the illustrations, which make each bird and flower look remarkably similar. Also worth noting is the excellent word play.
