A book to motive you to move

Hello to you today.  Love having you here with me for a visit each day.  I will first give you the answer to the book from yesterday.  Remember,  I give you the "first line" and you guess the book title and author.  Here is yesterday's answer:  "Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown."

Today's quote is:

                                                    "This is George.  He live in Africa."

Look familiar?

This fabulous book can help kids get up off their duffs....get outside...and let their creative juices flow........

Authored by:  Nancy Honovich and Julie Beer
Forward:  Richard Louv
Ages:  10+

It's time to take our kid's minds, bodies and spirits back.  Our kids are turning electronics into their passion and we need to show them that being outdoors, running, exploring, creating and observing nature with all it's complexities, beauty and splendour is very, very important to their health and well-being.  

This fabulous book is done in excellence as we have come to expect from National Geographic.  It is full of magnificent photos, sidebars, fun tips, information and facts that will boost your child's knowledge and make him aware of the world around him. It is designed in such a fun, kid-friendly way that your child will want to dive into the book and will have no alternative but to learn interesting facts and  then go forth and celebrate the great outdoors.  

The book has very cool ideas for adventures in forests, fields, on beaches, on playgrounds, in city parks, and right in your own back yard.  I especially like that their are many suggestions and instructions to create crafts, engage in activities and above all discover the fascination of nature by taking the time to explore and engage in it.  I highly, highly recommend this book.
