Book on nature education: "How to Raise a Wild Child!"

How to Raise a Wild Child: The Art and Science of Falling in Love with Nature Hardcover – March 24, 2015, by Scott D. Sampson:

American children today spend 90 percent less time playing outdoors than their parents did; instead, they spend an average of 7 hours a day interacting with a screen. Scott Sampson asserts that not only does exposure to nature help relieve stress, depression, and attention deficits, it also reduces bullying and helps boost academic scores. Even more important are the long-term benefits linked to cognitive, emotional, and moral development.
