Unlike my typical Moleskine sketchbooks, this one is for the very specific purpose of observing nature- both through writing and sketching. I know it's for children. I mean, it has stickers in the back and special glassine envelopes called "specimen pouches" tucked into the front cover for tiny natural found objects. I know. It's adorable and meant for a 10 year old. But seriously! Who wouldn't want this? It's adorable and inspiring, and I've started filling it with my "observations." I really can't wait to write "letters from the field" on the beautiful stationary in the back and plaster stickers all over the pages. The kids get all the best stuff.
