We love seeing kids spend time outside in unstructured 

play!  The benefits to their development cannot be minimized. 

These benefits include having an opportunity to develop their coordination, 

balance and strength all while in a sensory rich environment.  But, don't 

take our word for it.  Check out some of our favorite books on the subject below!

Richard Louv's book Last Child in the Woods beautifully highlights many of the benefits as well as barriers to kids spending time outside.  A must read for any caregiver of young chidren.

Vitamin N is one of Louv's follow up books, filled with engaging activities and inspiration to get kids outside.

Written by Bill Plotkin, a psychologist and wilderness guide, this book looks at development across the lifespan and the importance of development in connection to a greater culture and world.
