Nature-deficit disorder isn’t a medical condition – it’s a description of the human costs of being alienated from nature. There are solutions, though, and they’re right in our own backyards.
The author brings together research that shows how exposing children to nature is essential for healthy physical, emotional, and spiritual development. Parents have the power to ensure their kids won’t be the last child in the woods, and this book is a step toward reuniting children with nature.
Last Child in the Woods has spurred a national dialogue among educators, health professionals, parents, developers and conservationists. This is a book that will change the way you think about your future and the future of your children.
