National Trust: Complete Night Explorer's Kit

Stored in its own rucksack, with a little torch (complete with batteries!), star chart and stickers, this is a fascinating book for curious adventurers to enjoy! 

The book is full of useful information and things to make and  do. Creating a den and making an insect house are just a couple of the suggestions included. The pages are good quality and slightly shiny, making them easy to clean off- perfect for outdoor activities!

The little torch was an exciting addition and it has a wrist strap so it can be kept in easy reach. We were delighted to find that batteries were included in the pack so we could practise the Morse Code instantly! 

An excellent range of animals is explored, including a lovely section on hedgehogs. The book encourages children to explore in their own back gardens and further afield, discovering the night life around them. It also contains advice about keeping safe when out and about.

The star map on a separate piece of card is also very useful and easily carried around, perfect for taking on a stroll in the dark.
