Last Child in the Woods – Recommended by Amy S.

Straight from the headlines and morning show circuit, we have a great Member Recommended book.

Last Child in the Woods discusses the growing divide between nature and children.  Child advocacy expert Richard Louv directly links the lack of nature in the lives of today’s wired generation—he calls it nature-deficit—to some of the most disturbing childhood trends, such as the rises in obesity, attention disorders, and depression.

Amy S. says:  “I thought it was a great endorsement of having our kids join us in the park instead of always just in a daycare at a gym.”
