This book evolves around the importance of nature as a healthy and stimulating environment for children's development.

Nature has a unique potential as a platform for children to grow and experiment. CHILD OF NATURE, BENEFITS OF NATURE IN CHILDHOOD emphasizes the immanent curiosity of the child and its natural need for movement and how we can optimize the conditions for children's development outdoors. The possibility of both risky play and sensuous stimulation that nature provides for us, supports the health-promoting pedagogical foundation that is necessary for the healthy development of the child. This book is relevant for parents and professionals as well as others that might have an interest in the multiple ways in which nature benefits human development.

“Based on my long experience in a forest kindergarten, I have observed that nature and an active outdoor life give you happy children, with red cheeks and eyes radiating enthusiasm; in addition, children with an increased ability to find serenity, and thus, able to concentrate and having an incredible capability to be open, trustful and loving.” Rikke Rosengren, author.

Author Rikke Rosengren is the manager and co-founder of Bonsai, a Waldorf education house, forest kindergarten and nursery. She has a professional education as a kindergarten teacher, specializing in Waldorf education, and has worked and taught in the field for many years, as well as having published several books.
