What Color is the Wind?
A Feel Guide to the Out-of Doors for Parents with Young Children
The message of this book is one that all parents of today need to hear: Get outside. With your child. Out of over 40 years of experience as a naturalist/educator, director of the Nature Place Day Camp, and Waldorf parent of six, Ed Bieber has collected his thoughts about the whys and hows of exploring nature with children, which can mean nothing more complicated than just venturing out into the backyard. Dozens of creative and imaginative activities for each season of the year combine Ed's inimitable sense of humor with his deep love and reverence for the outdoors. Wise words by great thinkers from Ralph Waldo Emerson to Calvin and Hobbes are sprinkled throughout, and the sturdy hardcover allows it to be taken along on your outdoor explorations and used as a notebook, with blank pages for your own thoughts. Whether you use the activities in this book with children, share them with parents, or simply find in them a path for your own deepened relationship with nature, there are many treasures here.
