Nature Friend, ca. 1991
I was sure I would have blogged at least once about Nature Friend, but I've searched the archives and somehow I never have.
About a decade ago, we came across a pile of Nature Friends from 1990 and 1991. They were 36-page magazines with colour covers, but just line drawings and black and white photos inside. (The line drawings made good colouring pages!) We made those issues a part of our homeschool, including the drawing lessons, the easy-to-read nature stories (Ponytails used a lot of those for reading practice and copywork), and articles for older children.
"'Stop!' said Judy. 'Do you hear that? Is it a big bee?'"Judy sidled closer to Tim. She had not forgotten her bee sting from several days ago."'It doesn't sound like a bee, does it? It sounds like Mother's sewing machine when she's sewing fast,' said Tim."'Or Dad's power saw,' added Judy."'Let's see if we can find it.'"
"Children deserve to know the truth about our amazing world. As television, drugs, videos, and electronic games compete for children’s time and approval, it becomes all the more important to give them material that is true, exciting, and upbuilding to their character."--Writer's Guidelines, "Nature Friend"
