Product Description


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)

Nothing is more important to us than our children, and nothing is more important to our children than maintaining a high quality environment. If they are to have a benign and nurturing environment, much will depend on the ideas and surroundings they are exposed to today. The authors in Children and Nature discuss a fascinating and diverse range of topics related to these critical issues. Everyone with in interest in the human future could profit from reading it.

(Paul R. Ehrlich, Bing Professor of Population Studies, Stanford University, author of One With Nineveh: Politics, Consumption, and the Human Future)

Propagating a love of nature may ultimately be the most important pathway out of the biodiversity crisis. But how do people develop a sense of awe and reverence for the natural world? Children and Nature explores this most fundamental question. Educators, naturalists, environmentalists, parents, and anyone interested in communicating and fostering a deep regard for nature will greatly benefit from the highly stimulating explorations and discourses in this book.

(Carl Safina, Vice President for Marine Conservation, National Audubon Society, author of Eye of the Albatross and Song for the Blue Ocean)

This book was packed with good information about psychology and the environment. I used this book for an independent study with psychology and it gives deep insight to our monkey cousins. It also gives enviro-solutions that are well worth it. Delivery was speedy too.
