A Children's Guide to the Magical Natural World... Legends of the Garden: Faeries and Herbs shares traditional lore to teach children the wonder of listening to nature. With progressive activities to encourage readers to look, touch, feel, and experience nature, this beautiful book provides guidance not only in becoming more attuned to the natural world, but also in becoming more authentic to the self. Gentle, loving lessons include learning that "weeds" can be useful; connecting with intuition to listen to nature; learning a song to share with an elder; and building inner strength by making dandelion tea. In our modern world, children are increasingly disconnected from nature. Legends of the Garden is a uniquely valuable tool to bring children and adults back into alignment with the delight and wisdom of the world.
