Nature is everywhere - even in your town!
Your neighbours include moles, kestrels, mice, rabbits and even raccoons. Every little gap in a wall or crack in a pavement is home to lichen, moss and flowers. There’s so much to discover and explore. Perhaps you might like to grow plants on your balcony or in your garden? Could you make a compass or even spend a night sleeping outdoors? Peter Wohlleben explains all of this, along with telling us about all the miraculous and exciting things to be found right outside our own front door. | 6 +

Peter Wohlleben takes you on a tour of the animals that live close to where you live: in the woods, in the garden, by the water and in the house.
