…because kids do better when they're active and outside!

Last Child in the Woods is perhaps the only book you need to read to be convinced of the importance of getting kids outside.

“Last Child in the Woods is the first book to bring together a new and growing body of research indicating that direct exposure to nature is essential for healthy childhood development and for the physical and emotional health of children and adults. More than just raising an alarm, Louv offers practical solutions and simple ways to heal the broken bond—and many are right in our own backyard.”
