I was thinking that nature is a great resource for families. The love for snails, birds, trees, butterflies and all living things starts at home. Have you seen a child pick a flower or a weed and present it to his or her mother? Have you seen a child run along the beach or chase a butterfly? Children are born with a sense of wonderment and an affinity for nature. When we as caregivers tap into their passion for living things we open possibilities for the healthy , creative and emotional growth of a child. A love for nature begins at home!
