by Richard Louv
Only 2 left in stock
Vitamin N is a one-of-a-kind, comprehensive, and practical guidebook for the whole family and the wider community, including tips and essays not only for parents eager to share nature with their kids, but also for adults without children of their own, for policy makers, religious leaders, teachers and pediatricians; and for those seeking nature-smart schools and even careers. It is a dose of pure inspiration, reminding us that looking up at the stars or taking a walk in the woods is as exhilarating as it is essential, at any age. Recommended by the National Science Teachers Association.
From the author of the New York Times bestseller that launched the international children-and-nature movement, Vitamin N (for “nature”) is a complete prescription for connecting with the power and joy of the natural world right now, with:
- Five hundred activities
- Scores of informational websites
- An abundance of down-to-earth advice
- Dozens of thought-provoking essays
“(Richard Louv) coined the term ‘nature-deficit disorder’ in his bestselling book, Last Child in the Woods, and the phrase launched an eco-minded revolution in parenting. … Here’s the good news: it’s never too late to improve. No act is too small. And each and every single child and family can make a difference. That’s the crux of Vitamin N, a cheerfully pragmatic, can-do manual on parenting. Louv offers 500 simple, creative strategies for getting kids outdoors and creating a lasting connection with the natural world. It’s no longer enough to strive for a sustainable future for our children and their children, he argues. We must create a nature-filled world, starting now—in our families, neighborhoods, and communities.” —Katie Arnold, Outside magazine
