Acorn, the Nature Nut

Acorn the Nature Nut, an "evergreen-classroom-series," won the #1 Rating on the Discovery Channel and has been broadcast on many PBS Stations as well as the Learning Channel in Britain. It has also been seen by nature lovers in the Middle East, Central America and South America!

Acorn took the world by storm, and continues to do so, with folk-hero entomologist John Acorn leading the way! Acorn enables viewers to experience the thrill and the subtleties of the natural world through personal experience. Acorn's humor and style leaves people with a new-found sense of wonder for the natural world around them, along with smiles and laughter. John Acorn's signature line, "No doubt about it, I'm a Nature Nut," makes this series an integral part of any and all collections.
