Born to be Wild

by Hattie Garlick

Born to be Wild
£16.99 Add to basket


Want to save cash, your child's imagination and possibly even the planet? This is the book you need. Packed with great photos of real families in the outdoors, Born to Be Wild contains easy-to-follow instructions for activities that require nothing more sophisticated than a small person's imagination and access to a little outdoor space.

Organised seasonally and then by material, it lets parents skip straight to Spring and then to 'Blossom', 'Grass' or 'Earth' etc. according to their present need. Everything you need to engage in and create all of its hundreds of activities can be found in your kitchen cupboard. No expensive art supplies or outward-bound kit required. All you need is the 'Toolkit' listed at the front of the book. These ordinary household essentials include recycled food containers, scraps of paper, string, glue and an empty jar or two. Along the way Hattie Garlick talks to families, organisations, cultures and communities who have rebuilt their relationships with nature with extreme or inspiring results, and introduces scientists, psychologists and other experts who explain why nature matters in our kids' modern lives.
