More than I simply want this book A Natural Sense of Wonder: Connecting Kids With Nature through the Seasons, a review of which I read about over in Orion Magazine, I strive to practice what it promises to preach.
In a nutshell, let's instill a sense of natural world wonder in our children by letting them explore, making them explore the outdoors. Take walks, hikes, go camping. Take the secret passageway through the woods, by the river, in the field behind your house. Look at the birds and trees.
It does seem this very lesson is in timely sync with our need to love our planet a little more. Right now. These kids. This day.
