Not only does this book provide you with numerous ideas for simple outdoor activities to do with your children and grandchildren, it also provides you with lots of questions to ask your child to enhance their learning experiences.

I love this book! It's not about gardening or getting down and dirty (for the most part) but about showing your child how wonderful nature really is and how much fun you can have without your i-phones or your DS's or whatever newfangled device you may be addicted to, It's a great reference for parents to find some fun activities for every season to show their children just how awesome mother nature really is!
