"A nature-diary is a source of delight to a child. Every day's walk gives him something to enter: three squirrels in a large tree, a jay flying across such a field, a caterpillar climbing up a nettle, a snail eating a cabbage leaf, a spider dropping suddenly to the ground, where he found ground ivy, how it was growing and what plants were growing with it, how bindweed or ivy manages to climb. Innumerable matters to record occur to the intelligent child...he should begin to illustrate his notes freely with brush drawings - as for drawing, instruction has no doubt its time and place; but his nature-diary should be left to his own initiative."
- Charlotte Mason, Home Education, page 55
