Our discussion of "Last Child in the Woods" was well attended. Of course, it was preaching to the choir - we all agree that being out doors is important to all children. One participant noted that as an adult, being outdoors is key to managing her own ADD symptoms - she can feel the changes in her mind and body after a few minutes outside.
Screens were also identified as an enemy of children - we noted that when we take girls to camp they get creative with sticks and stones and other natural elements, and play develops in an organic, natural way.
Our second annual book club meeting was a success! If you have a suggestion for our third book, let us know and check back in mid-winter for our selection.
