The Lost Words by Robert McFarlane & Jackie Morris

This book is a great example of how we are losing ground in environmental literacy and education especially for children.

What kind of world are we exposing our children to if we are eliminating words like dandelion, otter, bramble, acorn etc.

We need to reconnect with the natural world and teach our children the value of the wonders and mysteries of nature so they may experience and connect to their own beauty within.

Studies show children who learn in outdoor classroom demonstrate better social skills and behavior as well as reaping lifelong benefits by their peaceful, stress free exposure and encounters with plants, trees, soil and fresh air in outdoor environment
