By Pond and River, by Arabella Buckley
Short chapters, simple language, and a narrative interwoven within the settings of a story makes By Pond and River a popular natural history lesson text for home educating parents and students the world over, particularly among those using a Charlotte Mason educational philosophy in their homes. This new edition has been lightly edited to bring it up to date for students of the twenty-first century.
As an aid to accompany the text, we highly recommend Natural History Pictures for a Living Education: By Pond and River, a compilation of photographs exclusively arranged for use alongside the book. Footnotes are littered throughout By Pond and River, indicating when a picture is available to supplement the text.

Let the words you read come alive and be amazed by the immense depth and breadth of God’s creation, as your eyes examine the incredible metamorphosis of tadpole to frog; the birth of a dragonfly; the intricate nature of a coot’s feet; and the variety of design in water creatures of all shapes and sizes.
Through the use of this book your student’s eyes shall be opened more widely; their attention to detail refined; their zest to seek out the objects of their education will be more pronounced.
