"From the author who defined nature-deficit disorder and launched the children-and-nature movement, this is a complete prescription for connecting with the power and joy of the natural world right now, with 500 activities for children and adults. Dozens of inspiring and thought-provoking essays. Scores of informational websites. Down-to-earth advice. In Last Child in the Woods, Richard Louv was the first to bring widespread attention to the alienation of children from the natural world and outlining the benefits of a strong nature connection - from boosting mental acuity and creativity to reducing obesity and depression, from promoting health and wellness to simply having fun. The New York Times called it "an inch-thick caution against raising the fully automated child." His follow-up book, The Nature Principle, addressed the needs of adults and outlined a new nature movement and its potential to improve the lives of all people no matter where they live. This is a practical guidebook for the whole family, including tips not only for parents eager to share nature with their kids but also for those seeking nature-smart schools, medical professionals, and even careers. A dose of pure inspiration, reminding us that looking up at the stars or taking a walk in the woods is as exhilarating as it is essential."--Provided by publisher.
