The Truth About Nature: A Family's Guide to 144 Common Myths about the Great Outdoors

by Stacy Tornio and Ken Keffer

Does moss only grow on the north side of a tree? Is the North Star really the brightest star? Will a mother bird abandon its baby if you put it back in its nest? Will toads really give you warts? The Truth About Nature answers all of these questions and more.

This useful compendium for parents and children to read together sets the record straight on nature myths once and for all. It breaks down 144 everyday nature myths, identifying how true the myth really is, with the book’s unique “myth scale” (level 1 being somewhat true to level 3 being a complete myth). Organized by season and covering facts that are so strange they must simply be false (but they’re true!), this interactive guidebook also offers readers the chance to do their own science experiments to bust a few myths on their own.
