Resource Description
LAST CHILD IN THE WOODS, Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder. Louv. UPDATED AND EXPANDED EDITION. As children’s connections to nature diminish, the social, psychological, and spiritual implications become apparent. Louv points out new research that shows how nature can offer powerful therapy for such maladies as depression, obesity, and attention-deficit disorder. Environment-based education dramatically improves standardized test scores and grade-point averages, stimulates creativity, and develops skills in problem solving, critical thinking, and decision making. In Last Child in the Woods, Louv talks with parents, children, teachers, scientists, religious leaders, child development researchers, and environmentalists who recognize the threat and offer solutions. Louv shows us an alternative future, one in which parents help their kids experience the natural world more deeply and find the joy of family and community connectedness in the process. This revised edition offers empowering case studies along with 35 key points to make during discussions with others. #EE-14488.
