"What a magnificent journey it is into the magic of childhood and our exquisite connection with nature. I think this is a book that would benefit every parent who wants their child to be connected to the earth. I really enjoyed reading it and wish my kids were still little to take them on this journey.

I will definitely be sharing it with the guides at my school. Well done on such a beautiful offering to adults and children everywhere. "
