Guided by a mission to provide practical information that encourages personal independence in harmony with the environment, Storey books teach and encourage readers of all ages to enrich their lives through hands-on activities and experiences.

The company’s roots date back to 1983, when founders John and Martha Storey bought the publishing arm of Garden Way, a business long known for its rototillers and garden carts. What began as Storey Communications grew into Storey Publishing, which has become a trusted authority for books on gardening, home reference, crafts, cooking, beer and wine, nature, animals, horses, building, farming, homesteading, and mind/body/spirit.

Storey joined the Workman Publishing family in 2000. Storey’s offices are located on the campus of the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) in North Adams, nestled in the beautiful Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts.

Fantastic activity learning book for any age or country of origin, really. There are sections on the night sky, nocturnal animals and lots more, complete with fun learning tools like magnifying glass and ways to see animals and flora that have bioluminescence. Fantastic learning tool!
There are activities for learning and stickers (if the book is gifted to one person). It also encourages interaction for the reader with both the giver and the environment. I want one!
The illustrations are delightful, imaginative, clear, and colorful.
Well suited for reading WITH someone of any age including ESL, and great for gifting to anyone, and even to a school or teacher or your public library!
I requested and received a free temporary e-book on Adobe Digital Editions from Storey Publishing, Storey Publishing, LLC via NetGalley. Thank you!
A marvelous book!

Fantastic activity learning book for any age or country of origin, really. The early divisions are flowers, grasses, leaves, cactus, wildflowers, marsh/water plants, mosses/ferns, berries, as well as which plants are dangerous.

Pretty good collection. Maybe even deserves 4 stars. There are a number of crafts in this book, but not so many that there isn't enough room to give enough information about all of them. I read the section on "make your own flowerpots" in the store and was impressed that the author tells you how to dig and refine your own clay (wow!) and how and where to source inexpensive clay and what to ask for, followed by the basic information on handbuilding that most books of this nature would include as their only offering, and culminating in a brief but effective description of how to build your own primitive kiln and fire your pottery. I'd use a different type of outdoor homemade kiln, but the fact that she even covers the topic at all is huge.

The crafts in the book include rug braiding, rug hooking, quilting, chair caning, pottery, stencilling (of walls, in the 19th century fashion), basketry, simple curtains, and very basic furniture construction. Each section is written by an author experienced in the craft. I think I talked myself into those four stars now.
