About this book

If the experience of nature has been a critical component of human physical, emotional, intellectual and even moral development, scientific knowledge of the significance of nature during the different stages of childhood is sparse. This book aims to remedy this shortfall.

This book has an astonishing number of insights per page. The authors carefully provide good reasons to believe that experiences in nature are a cornerstone for the development of healthy children, who learn to act wisely in the environment and to create healthy societies. --Chris Myers, Professor and Director of Project Dragonfly, School of Interdisciplinary Studies, Miami University
