Product Description

Review

“Both daring and meditative, How to Be an Explorer of the World is part Maira Kalman, part Wendy MacNaughton, part its very own kind of whimsy, delivering — beautifully — exactly what it says on the tin, with an invitation to be just a little bit more alive each day.”
—Brain Pickings

A great tool for parents, caregivers and teachers to encourage kids to explore their world - which ends up really being a reminder to adults to do the same.

I bought this book, along with two others from the same author, as a gift for my 14 year old niece. She was so excited to go out and be part of the creative adventure! Looks like a blast!
