It is an honour that you have chosen to read ‘Connecting Children to Nature’.
My hope is to be a guide and an ally in understanding the challenges we face in an increasingly technological world and how Nature provides the answers to the issues we face.
This book is a poignant overview of our modern times, and how they impact childhood development, learning, our connection to nature, connections to each other and how we interact with our world.
It can help teachers, parents and mentors see clearly the issues with increased technology and how we can manage our relationships with technology for better outcomes.
The book displays the science on how nature can improve every aspect of physical, emotional, mental and developmental health of both children and adults.
The book is also a guide that provides solutions, tools, and activities that will help teachers, mentors and parents connect the children around them to Nature, through simple and practical means.
The book explores how using the scientific lens of observation and study can become a gateway for increased learning, enhanced interactions, and to instil a lifelong passion for Nature and her workings.
This book is mostly aimed at early learning and how we can connect those generations to Nature. Yet the wisdom applies for all ages and ‘Connecting Children to Nature’ can show anyone, that truly the solutions to our biggest problems in education, childhood and adult development and environment, can be found in developing strong, loving, and wise connections with Nature. This book shows you how this can be done.
