The Nature of Play: A Handbook of Nature-based Activities for all Seasons
Suggesting an antidote to our era of ever-present screens and passive play, this new book by Fanny + Alexander, The Nature of Play, offers simple, seasonal activities encouraging children (and the adults who love them) to play with and among nature – whether they live among skyscrapers or fields.
Days spent wandering and wondering are what childhoods should be made of – and The Nature of Play is packed with plentiful ideas for simple, fascinating and fun ways to do just that – rain or shine.
