This book is an absolute must-read for parents
A single sentence explains why Louv's book is so important: 'our children', he writes, 'are the first generation to be raised without meaningful contact with the natural world.' This matters, and Last Child in the Woods makes it patently clear why, and lays out a path back.
Richard Louv's Vitamin N should find its place in the list of essential vitamins! If we stress a connection to the natural environment... we can lessen the lifelong effects of a stressful childhood, including depression, obesity [and] behavior problems.

[The Last Child in the Woods] is an absolute must-read for parents.
Louv proclaims the many advantages of reconnecting with nature, both for children and adults, in an insightful and practical guide chock full of inspirational advice... This important new book provides the tools to reclaim the wonders and health benefits of nature.
Vitamin N [is] a cheerfully pragmatic, can-do manual on parenting... We must create a nature-filled world, starting now-in our families, neighborhoods, and communities.
