If you’ve been here before, you know that nature is so important to me! Kids need to spend plenty of time out in nature, getting dirty, exploring their world, listening and watching the plants and creatures growing and moving around them. More time in nature leads to less stress, more focus, less problems with anxiety, ADD, health issues, greater empathy, curiosity… and a ton of other benefits. There are many articles you can Google about the benefits and there are no negative side effects to enjoying nature regularly! It may be harder to spend time outdoors in the colder months, so inspire your kids with these awesome books to encourage nature study.
