Exactly the book for every young explorer who loves to find things in nature and take them home. Cabinet of Curiosities is a lavishly illustrated introduction to the wonders of natural history and the joys of being a hobbyist scientist and collector.

Nature writer Gordon Grice, who started his first cabinet of curiosities at age six when he found a skunk’s skull, explains how scientists classify all living things through the Linnaeus system; how to distinguish real gold from fool’s gold; how to preserve butterflies, crab shells, feathers, a robin’s egg, spider specimens, and honeycombs; how to identify seashells; the difference between antlers and horns; How to read animal tracks. And then what to do with your specimens, including how to build a trinket cabinet out of common household items, like a desk organizer or a fishing tackle box.
