Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Can be used by classroom teachers across the curriculum as a source for activities and is sure to inspire budding environmentalists.”—School Library Journal

Gold Mom’s Choice Award® Winner in the Adult Books: Outdoors and Nature

Get Out! is full of fun activities to inspire a love of nature along with a desire to protect it.”
—Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder

“This is a great book for getting families outside, having fun—immediately. Just reading a few of the quick, joyful suggestions makes you want to run out and collect rocks, build a birdhouse, and just appreciate the fact the planet is still doing its thing.”
—Lenore Skenazy, author, Free-Range Kids: Giving Our Children the Freedom We Had Without Going Nuts with Worry

"This book is ideal for teachers, group leaders, and even families.”—Green Teacher Magazine

“Judy Molland takes her trademark education expertise and brings it outdoors, giving kids and their grown-ups solid tips on how to understand and appreciate nature and its gifts. Our earth is the world’s biggest classroom, and Molland’s book makes us want to keep it safe for generations to come.” —Bay Area Parent Magazine

Get Out! is a perfect baby shower gift for expecting parents, a birthday gift for parents planning their summer activities, or a gift to your elderly neighbors who are babysitting their grandchildren for spring break.”—SF Green Parenting Examiner

“Look for Get Out! by Judy Molland, which is a book about ways your child can enjoy nature and ‘go green.’”—The Leader Times

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
As a practical guide for youngsters and adults, this small paperback succeeds in providing sensible advice and information. In the introduction, the author writes, "On every page, you'll find straightforward, engaging activities, projects, games, ideas, and tips to help you get yourself and your kids outdoors, improve your physical health, and do more for Earth." This goal is definitely met in ways that are easily accomplished. Chapter one offers information on how to see and learn about the natural world, whether it is in the backyard, a park, or the playground. The ideas range from keeping a journal to collecting stones to listening to birds' songs to camping or even cloud watching. Other chapters deal with actual ways to be "green consumers;" simple projects and outings; methods for becoming active using the three Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle); promoting causes such as Earth Day; community recycling; or raising awareness of littering. Eleven pages of resources are listed in the end matter. It is probably a good idea to purchase at least two copies of this most useful book, as it is sure to be in constant use by adults and children. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth
School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up—This handy reference book is filled with nifty ideas to live green and save the Earth. After a brief introduction that encourages readers to get outdoors and partake in the social and spiritual offerings of nature, the book is divided into five sections: "Get Started: Cool Ways to Embrace Nature Today," "Go Further: Projects, Plans, and Outings," "Get Smart: Be Green Consumers—and Eaters!" "Get Active: More Than Just the 3Rs," and "Get Involved: Take a Green Stand." The 150 ideas are simple and direct. Suggestions range from recycling bottles and shoes, to toy exchanges, to building owl and bat boxes. This book can be used by classroom teachers across the curriculum as a source for activities and is sure to inspire budding environmentalists.—Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt. Carmel, IL
