Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder
Description:

Richard Louv was the first to identify a phenomenon we all knew existed but couldn't quite articulate: nature-deficit disorder. His book Last Child in the Woods created a national conversation about the disconnection between children and nature, and his message has galvanized an international movement. Now, three years after its initial publication, we have reached a tipping point, with Leave No Child Inside initiatives adopted in at least 30 regions within 21 states, and in Canada, Holland, Australia, and Great Britain. This new edition reflects the enormous changes that have taken place since the book—and this grassroots movement— were launched. It includes: • 101 Things you can do to create change in your community, school, and family. • Discussion points to inspire people of all ages to talk about the importance of nature in their lives. • A new afterword by the author about the growing Leave No Child Inside movement. • New and updated research confirming that direct exposure to nature is essential for the physical and emotional health of children and adults. This is a book that will change the way you think about your future and the future of your children.
