Last Child in the Woods: Saving our children from nature-deficit disorder
By - Richard Louv
Why don't children play outside anymore? Last Child in the Woods is a conversation about our collective disconnection from nature, a condition author Richard Louv identified as "nature-deficit disorder". In the new edition, Louv provides updates on the research linking the lack of nature in children's lives with the rise in obesity, attention disorders and depression. The book also provides practical advice for kids and families wanting to reconnect with the natural world.
You know those days we all have: the computer crashes, a hefty parking ticket materializes on the windshield, or worse - a family member falls ill or divorce strikes (BTW, divorce is bad for the planet).
What if nature could make you feel better? (I know you're thinking of a time when it has.)
"Reading these books and educating myself has profoundly changed my life in the fact that I have gained so much knowledge about these things that matter to me. I have become so much more aware of all the everyday things that affect our mother earth. I am no longer ignorant...I am AWARE!!!!"
