This picture book is aimed at children 2-6 years old, to encourage outdoor play, exploration and imagination.
“For children, research shows that close proximity to greenspaces is clearly associated with reduced prevalence ofdepression, anxiety and other health problems.Many researchers believe that outdoor play has long-termbenefits for physical, social, emotional and cognitivedevelopment and fosters a sense of identity, feelings ofautonomy, psychological resilience and healthy behaviours.Additionally, children who experience high levels of contactwith nature have higher levels of self-worth and highercognitive function.”
