    Rachel Carson and Richard Louv gave us the ideas. Now is time for action!

    Rick Van Noy has taken the words of Rachel Carson to heart. Collecting notes while making memories with his children, he has compiled a parent's dream come true. How does a parent create meaningful activities that will help their family grow stronger, help their children learn of the need to care for the world around them, and do all this without costing a fortune? As a father of three, I am constantly trying to find ways for my children to experience their surroundings, hoping that they will grow up and do the same for their children. Rick Van Noy's book, A Natural Sense of Wonder, reminds parents of the importance of everyday adventures. Written in conversational, journal style, the book features many stories of family adventures such as treehouse building, salamander hunts, and one of our favorites - creek dipping. Along the way, Van Noy introduces just enough beginning ecology to encourage families to seek out further information about historical ecological figures and movements. Simple hints and the author's lessons learned are shared to guarantee that your own attempts at navigating the world- or just your backyard, will be successful. Successful, in that you will build stronger bonds with your family, and truly provide them with a 'natural sense of wonder' for the world.
