Publisher's Summary

American children today spend 90 percent less time playing outdoors than their parents did; instead they spend an average of seven hours a day interacting with a screen. Scott Sampson asserts that not only does exposure to nature help relieve stress, depression, and attention deficits, but it also reduces bullying and helps boost academic scores. Even more important are the long-term benefits linked to cognitive, emotional, and moral development.

Distilling the latest research in disciplines such as psychology, neuroscience, biology, and education, Sampson reveals how parents and educators can help kids fall in love with nature and instill a sense of place that will help keep the planet healthy.

    "Should be a requirement for parents to read..."

    This book explains the importance of outdoor connection between children (and adults) and nature. It should be required of all parents to read because it helps one understand the NEED for children to grow and explore outside. It takes scholarly information from studies, reports, and years of research to break it down for everyone to understand.

    "Sorry I wasted my credit"

    I believe in involving children in nature but this one was a waste of my credit. He could have said it all in a paragraph.

    "Yay! It's Dr Scott!"
