We have incorporated nature walks into our school time this year. Nature walks are an important part of our Florida study based on The Young Naturalists Guide to Florida. By the end of the school year, if we stay on schedule, we would have traveled all over the state of Florida and explored every type of eco system in Florida. With everything going on in our world and environment I want to make sure that my children have an opportunity to see things before they are gone forever. I also want them to have an appreciation for nature and our environment, because it is going to be up to their generation to turn things around.
A great read is
Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv.
Check it out here:
You are doing a great thing by getting your kids out in nature. Hope you enjoy the book.

I have that book! I love that we are reading the same things. Does that mean I’m the perfect mother too (according to your facebook quiz) even though I didn’t give birth naturally?
