Think Outside the House
Children aren’t the only ones who should be playing outside. In This Book Was a Tree (Perigee, $16), Marcie Chambers Cuff presents activities for adults—with or without their children—to get them outside and appreciating nature. Cuff is calling for a “new era of pioneers” to reconnect with the Earth through hands-on activities in the great outdoors. Put down the cell, go outside, and begin deciphering nature’s puzzles.
