"There may be no better way to ensure the well-being of the natural world tomorrow than to introduce children to its many small wonders today. Through a series of accessible activities designed to engage young minds and all five senses, this book reminds us of --even celebrates--the magic to be found right outside our own back doors."

A nature-lover herself, Jennifer Ward has done an excellent job creating a collection of fun, interactive ways for children everywhere to connect with nature and combat the growing negative impact of sedentary, indoor lifestyles on our youth."

I Love Dirt! is a call to parents, educators, and caregivers to help children recover one of the great joys of childhood. Through 52 activities, readers will find a wealth of creative ways to actively engage children, ages four to nine, in nature. Each activity presents an open-ended project meant to promote exploration, stimulate imagination, and heighten a sense of wonder: Bug Lullabies challenge kids to use their sense of hearing to pick out insect noises; in Cloud Races children are engaged in a fun contest to see whose cloud reaches the designated finish line first. "Help Me Understand" sidebars provide answers to potential questions such as, "What's a cloud?" as well as fun science facts, making this a wonderful resource for any adult fostering a child's growth.
