Oh, this looks awesome. I'll be preordering. Thanks for posting about this, GK, I hadn't heard of it yet.
I hadn't heard of it either--could you give us a mini-review when you're done?
Her HAVING FAITH: AN ECOLOGIST'S JOURNEY TO MOTHERHOOD looks fascinating, too.Faith and Elijah--two of her books have her children's names. I am officially jealous.
Um, and this is why I adore you. Just so you know. Have you read Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv? Pretty much started the whole movement to get kids back outside. And here's a related article about the balance between technology and unstructured outside play (and its relationship with fostering creativity in the next generation). It's long, but I think it has a lot of important quotes from folks dedicated to researching this stuff.http://www.harborlightnews.com/atf.php?sid=11988¤t_edition=2011-02-02This is such an important topic. I also doubly love that you are thinking about it before even having kids, I might add. ;)
Yes! Having Faith looks great too! So far so good! Really enjoying it. And yes! Last Child in the Woods is great too!
And Kate, yes. I don't know why, but I really love reading books about how to raise kids. Probably for the same reason most Americans have very strong opinions about how education is carried out in this country. It's a big deal, and it affects all of us.
I've never heard of this, but am adding it to my Goodreads list RIGHT NOW.Love the cover btw. PLEASE let us know what you think! ;)
This looks like something I should read. The topic is even more important to me now that I have a child. I remember running wild as a kid, outside, ALL DAY, and not coming in until the porch light was turned on.
I'm reading this now. It's a great resource.
