Peedie Pals Pebble Puffin’s Nature Journal Reviews

Product Tested By Elaine Cowie – Willow 3 Years 10 Months

Elaine Awarded The Peedie Pals Children’s Nature Journal 5/5

We immediately liked the colourful cover and the illustrations. The quality of the paper is good, and there are lots of pages so even though we explore nature regularly, it will still be a good while before we use them all up. Willow liked that the first page allows me to add her details to make this her own personal journal. There aren’t any links or websites to the author/publisher. It’s a great concept, encouraging children to get outdoors and take more notice of the world around them. It helps them to be more observant and encourages discussion about nature and the particular environment they are in when out and about, or even just in the garden. Willow loves going for walks along the coast, in forests and up in the hills, and likes to collect leaves, flowers, stones, shells and sea glass as well as spotting wildlife so she already loves nature but this gives her a mission to find new things when out walking or in the garden. This journal helped her to analyse her surroundings and the living things within them, as well as instilling an understanding of dates, days of the week and weather conditions. She enjoyed finding or noticing things that we could record in the journal. She is enjoying collecting items to stick in her journal so she is being even more observant of interesting things. She has liked observing the different weather conditions, as well as watching the changes in plants and the different wildlife. We watched some caterpillars today and she commented on their furry bodies, their colour, and their eye stalks. She also told me that her sunflowers leaves were wilting and I should water them. Willow is always picking up stones, shells, leaves and flowers so this journal is helping her create a memory book of her collected items as well as learning about the plants and trees near us. As she’s only 3, I had the job of writing everything in the journal but she told me what to write. It inspired her to ask to go to new places and to discover new things. We used this at least 3 times per week. She used it after every walk and on many occasions in the garden. Willow most liked being able to stick her finds in the journal. She also liked the Pebble Puffin character so we used that as a prompt to learn more about puffins and where we might see them. I liked that it encouraged observation and getting outdoors, and supports a smallish business. The pages are durable enough to stick items on, and it’s a good way to get children to appreciate the natural world around them. Nice thick book with lots of pages made from premium paper. An affordable price for a good quality item. I would buy this product as it has proven to be a great way to get Willow to understand the natural world around her and to explore nature. I would recommend it as it encourages children to appreciate the nature around them, both in their own garden and in areas we explore when out and about. A good quality book to record our observations and interactions with the natural world. Elaine Cowie – Willow 3 Years 10 Months

A cute, little, child-friendly book. The diary idea of logging the weather and what is seen on a daily basis on nature walks in whatever way a child wishes, is a nice idea to encourage exploration more. The journal didn’t encourage my child to want to explore more it just provided an opportunity to clearly record what we had seen while out. This did make her think about her observations more.  This did make her more aware of nature and things around her so she could record in the journal. Just leaves were stuck in as it didn’t leave much room for noting observations if we stuck too many bits in. Provided chance to write ideas down of what she’s noticed/experienced out in nature. She used this 3-4 times a week.  My daughter loved the handy overall size of journal, easy to use. Clear layout. I liked the colourful cover, lightweight. It was reasonable quality. Personally I think price is expensive for what it is. I think it could be better quality cover (hard back) to stop wear and tear. A ring binder spine would be preferable and I think there should be more sub headings/sections  to include what was heard, smelt, our in nature too as well as saw. I personally would not recommend this as feel it needs improvements.  It didn’t grasp my little girl’s attention for very long at one time. It’s a cute, simple little idea but I think it wasn’t something my child was excited about using to record due to comments made above. Kiran Raker – Summer 6 Years

Nice simple little paperback book. I liked the concept of making a nature type memory book together. It encouraged my son to look around at nature and collect seed feathers leaves or anything he found interesting to stick in the book at home. The book is mostly blank with boxes for date and weather and space for sticking or drawing. It encourages parents to discuss keeping a nature record. This journal gave my son a focal point to be more observant while we were out. We collected feathers, leaves and flowers to put in the journal. My three year old isn’t quite at that stage of writing but he has drawn some lovely pictures of what we have seen on walks. I have labelled and dated for future reference. We used it once a week and looked at it couple times a week so my son could look at what he collected or drew. My son liked sticking stuff in it and drawing dimple pictures and talking about what he put in the book. I liked going out on walks and talking about nature with my son. I was a bit disappointed it was paperback. As while out and about it’s easy to bend or get wet. I would say it is a little bit pricey for a small paperback journal.  Which reminded me of a school exercise book. I would prefer to buy a stronger more harder wearing journal or scrapbook and pay a bit more. I would recommend but only if they were looking for a cheap type nature journal. I liked the concept of a nurture journal. I feel the quality of the book may not be very long lasting. I also found some items I stuck in fell out. It would of been good to have a pocket in to slot in some items. While testing the journal it did give my son and I a focal point when we went out for walks and when it was time to go home he looked forward to taking his goodies back to stick in. Do we did get some  enjoyment out of it. But it reminded me of a school exercise book. Kelly Menicou – Elijah 3 Years
