Last Child in the Woods PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Last Child in the Woods free pdf Already a perennial "New York Times" bestseller, "Last Child in the Woods" shows how our children have become increasingly alienated and distant from nature, why this matters and how we can make a difference. Camping in the garden, riding bikes through the woods, climbing trees, collecting bugs and butterflies, picking wildflowers, running through piles of autumn leaves, cooking over a campfire and telling ghost stories under the stars...somewhere the pleasures of a free-range childhood have been lost. And with the indoor habits of today's children come other problems - epidemic obesity, attention-deficit disorder, isolation and childhood depression. This timely book, which has inspired the influential international movement Leave No Child Inside, has not only highlighted the problem and provoked debate- it also offers practical advice on how to help children to enjoy the natural world - starting in our parks and gardens, homes and schools. This is a clarion call, brilliantly written, compelling and irresistibly persuasive - a book that will change minds and lives.
