about this book

In this unique collaboration, two naturalists ask what may happen now that so many more children are denied exposure to wildness than at any other time in human history.

“This thoughtful presentation, testifying to children’s need for direct contact with nature, has value for parents and those who work with children.” -Publishers Weekly

“A convincing case for the necessity of exposing children to nature.” -Kirkus Reviews

“I recommend this book for parents, teachers, and anyone interested in child development.” -Bloomsbury Review
