Editorial Reviews

"Here is the potential for much fun, many meaningful experiences-and a trove of shared stories."-Richard Louv, from the foreword


"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."-Todd Christopher, cofounder of National Wildlife Federation's Green Hour

"I Love Dirt! is a perfect book for parents, teachers, or anyone who cares about children and nature. 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."-David Mizejewski, naturalist, National Wildlife Federation, and host of Animal Planet's Backyard Habitat

"A perfect companion to your nature center and hiking trail excursions!"-Nashville Parent

"A wonderful resource for parents. This book could be the ticket to many wonderful memories for both parent and child."-Portland Book Review
