David Suzuki, an award winning scientist, environmentalist and broadcaster, once said that "Unless we are willing to encourage our children to reconnect with and appreciate the natural world, we can't expect them to help protect and care for it".
As our world continues to move further and further into the digital world, the number of children who play outside continues to decrease. Creating a connection with the natural world is not only beneficial for a child's development, it's important so that as the next generation, they respect and value our environment.
Of course, establishing the connection to the natural world begins where it has always traditionally begun, and that's at the 'once upon a time'. Reading books about the environment to our dear little ones allows them to develop a curiosity about the great, big world outside. These days there are many books available which teach our children how to care about the natural world, in a fun and informative manner.
