From Library Journal:

Children's book author Ward (I Love Dirt!) here compiles numerous, creative suggestions for outdoor activities designed to foster stewardshipÅin preteens and their parents. Complete instructions for traditional outdoor games (remember capture the flag?) are followed by "Take It Further" sidebars that give additional suggestions for kids who connect with a particular activity. Occasionally, there is something obvious (how to fly a Frisbee), but most of the activities are eco-friendly and simple, including (but not limited to) ones parent and child can do together. Richard Louv's Last Child in the Woods remains the gold standard for encouraging outdoor play, but this isÅa worthy complement with the potential to peel away even the most reluctant tween from the computer.-Julianne J.
