It didn't matter where or how I used it, I always felt renewed when I picked it up. Now here is With Beauty Before Me, an expanded version with even more quotes, new activities and pocket sized. A must for all nature educators and outdoor enthusiasts. Perfect for field work (Roy Simpson, Ranger/Educator, Tumacacori National Historical Park) QUOTE: The most basic lesson of ecology teaches us that all life is full of interconnections. Cornell expands on this lesson to help us connect with our inner nature, as well as find connections between ourselves and the nature that surrounds us. (Prof. Rocky Rohwedder, Dept. of Environmental Studies, Sonoma State University)
Author Biography: Joseph Cornell is one of the most highly regarded nature educators in the world today. Being with him in nature is a memorable event because of his obvious joy being in nature and his love for the Earth. In the late 1970s, Cornell's book introduced "nature games" in which nature is the teacher; games that inform, inspire, and are just plain fun. Almost two decades later, with about 500,000 copies of Sharing Nature with Children sold in 15 languages, and many thousands of his other books, "Sharing Nature" has become not just a book, but a worldwide approach to nature education.
