When bored kids venture outdoors: the summer camp in a book

During the summer, beleaguered parents encourage, sometimes plead with, their bored 4-10 year old’s to play outside. They know in the backyard, or the city park, or the greenway, a curious kid can discover many an exciting adventure including the gossip about the wild animal that lives in a local wooded area. Yet, Mom/Dad also know the different kinds of butterflies, urban fossils, and wildflowers growing through the cracks in the sidewalks can peak their child’s interest too.

After returning home, imaginary excursions based on these discoveries have kept children busy for many hours at a time. To capture and relive those events: Imagine Childhood, Exploring the World Through Nature, Imagination, and Play-25 Projects that Spark Curiosity and Adventure.

The author could readily subtitle it, “The Summer Camp in a Book” as it facilitates the 4-10 year old’s time spent in the woods inspecting all the imaginary universes. This book is a celebration of childhood. Crafts and activities that invite wonder and play help a youngster get to know the world inch by inch allowing him/her to become the ultimate kid. http://store.imaginechildhood.com/
